The Case for Plant-Based Protein

The top question people have when considering a plant-based diet is:
Will I get enough protein?
The answer is a resounding YES.

Registered dietitians Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina join agrologist Cory Davis for a deep dive into the politics and fallacies surrounding plant-based protein. Together, they present the science and studies that validate why protein derived from plants is not only comparable to protein from animal products but also is often superior to it!
The roles of macronutrients and micronutrients and which essential amino acids found in protein promote healthy growth are clearly explained. The  recommended daily allowance (RDA) for protein for specific age brackets, as well as for athletes and pregnant women, is identified, along with suggestions for how to obtain all the vital nutrients each group requires.
Detailed information is presented regarding two key advantages unique to plant-based protein: a lighter carbon footprint and the ability to reduce the risk of chronic diseases thanks to an abundance of healthful compounds.
From easy-to-understand nutritional information to pantry suggestions, cooking tips, and mouthwatering recipes, this book contains everything necessary to adopt a plant-based diet and be assured that it’s a wholesome, nourishing, and protein-abundant choice.
