Been looking for a succinct way to phrase this.
Oh no. Vegans can eat all sorts of other healthy foods. Gotta have those oreos, those pop tarts, that bread, that margarine. Like I get that you can be a somewhat healthy vegan (eat tons of nuts and seeds and some legumes…
1) Plant protein is best for the human body
2) a meat eater riding a bike does more environmental harm than a vegan driving a hummer - meat/dairy production are harming the environment more than automobiles
3) vegans think sentient life is more important than taste buds
4) anything can be made vegan (and better)
Plant protein doesn’t hold a candle to meat protein. Plain and simple. We’re talking 1-2 grams vs 15 grams. No comparison
1) broccoli has more protein than steak
2) you should probably talk to Google before replying
Dear meat-eaters, (no one of you in particular, just in general, since I see this protein nonsense all the time).
If you don’t know what proteins are, educate yourself instead of replying like a mindless automaton, repeating the lies drilled into your skull by the meat & dairy industry.
If you’re too lazy to use google, here’s the lowdown:
Proteins are chains of different combinations of amino acids. How does our body use protein? It breaks it back down into those amino acids and reuses them for all sorts of processes, especially reading and executing DNA information.
Animal protein is mostly made up of longer protein chains, recycled, if you will, from plant foods the animals themselves have eaten. They are “used” amino acids. Animals get those very same amino acids from the plant foods you deem inferior. These animal protein chains are harder for us to digest, as they are more complex, and the more similar to us an animal is, the more harmful eating their protein chains actually becomes. This is why eating cows and pigs is even more detrimental to human health than eating birds or fish. They are mammals, like us.
Plant protein, on the other hand, is the first source. It’s created from earth, water and sunlight. It’s brand-new, as opposed to the recycled and used amino acids in animal protein.
The building blocks, though, are exactly the same.
Think of it as LEGO.
Plant protein is a brand new box of shiny new LEGOs, all sorted by colour, easy to find, so you can start building right away.
Animal protein is the used, mouldy LEGO box your uncle found on his attic and you will have to still break apart whole random structures you cannot use yourself, clean up the pieces and then try to assemble what you need, and discard things you really have no use for.
It’s the plant protein that is superior in every single way.
It’s up to you to cleanse your ruined tastebuds that prefer dead flesh over broccoli.
best protein smackdown. learned so much.
