I can hear my Jewish grandmother now…”What do you mean you don’t eat meat? But you need protein, honey! You’re already too skinny!” (ETC ETC). I laugh and try to change the subject. But she’s not the only one. In the past 8 months AV (After Vegan), anytime a friend or coworker noticed I was passing up a delicious helping of meat, the protein question came up.
It's a valid question, because protein is important.
