Protein is not created equal and let’s stop pretending plant protein comes even close to what our body needs and requires or that eating plant-based is going to save the planet.
When I see RDs promoting a plant based heavy nut, seed, soy diet for women’s hormones I want to cringe. 🥴 It’s no surprise these women are practicing what they preach but feel like trash because they are severely under-nourished, and protein deficient. They can’t understand why their getting cyclical migraines and gaining weight yet their entire diet is pro- inflammatory, anti-thyroid and estrogenic.
We have to remember there will always be superior foods that our body can get the most energy from and quality animal sources are and always will be MVP.
What makes a food superior to another?
This is not to say to never have plant based protein sources. If you absolutely must – have them on occasion, cook them well, avoid packaged man-made garbage made in a laboratory, buy them in their natural form and seasonally, prepare them appropriately and know where they were grown.
And certainly do not try replace nutrient-dense animal protein with them. Prioritize animal proteins always (not just chicken ).
If we want to save the planet we need to stop thinking soy and pea protein is the answer. Do yourself a favor and look up the farming practices of those crops. Yikes!
The future is not plant-based. It’s regenerative farming.
Your body is nutritionally demanding and requires lots of energy. We need to stop being brainwashed into thinking we can somehow thrive off foods that do not work for our physiology.
You live one life. Make it a good one. Eat foods that make sense and help you thrive!
