🥦Where do you get your protein? The short answer to this is that all whole foods contain protein. Even fruit contains protein! But…
.
The source of your protein is very important because some sources of protein are better than others. Decades ago, nutrition scientists believed that animal-based forms of protein were “superior” to plant-based protein. And many people today still believe this.
.
However, scientists now know from numerous experimental and epidemiological studies that animal-based forms of protein accelerate aging, while plant-based forms of protein.do not. When most or all of your protein comes from plants, numerous metabolic processes occur that preserve good health and promote longevity.
.
So if you want to become a healthy centenarian someday, choose mushrooms – not meat…
.
Or bake some potatoes – not pork.
.
Slice up some tomatoes – not turkey.
.
Pile your plate with broccoli – not beef.
.
As long as you eat enough food and avoid the processed stuff, you’ll get enough protein. And you’ll be healthier by getting your protein from plants instead of animals.
