PROTEIN MYTH

I AM SO SORRY YA'LL. I haven't had access to the internet for a while but they fixed it today so hurray hurray.

Well, I promised you the four other typical comments from pro meat eaters as soon as they hear that you're not too hip on feasting on flesh and here is the second one (along with some sassylicious comebacks):

2. "Where do you get your protein from?"

Okay...seriously now you guys. When was the last time you met a person in a wheelchair, unable to move with sunken eyes, desperately whispering to you that he or she were suffering from a protein deficiency and is now unable to live a normal life. Yeah…I think that time was actually never.

How many anorexic looking gorillas and elephants have you seen? None! They’re freaking huge. And guess what they eat!? Plants. They don’t have a McDonald’s or a KFC lying around the jungle giving them that VITAL PROTEIN to make them big and strong. And they're bigger, stronger and faster than you'll ever be son.

Did you know, that eating an abundance of protein, especially animal protein, can be harmful for you? It can lead to faster aging as well as cause cancer and obesity. We don't need that much protein. Even my doctor told me that this hype about protein is a well-planned strategy by the meat and fish industry to cause worries about not getting enough protein and so --> create neurotic carcass munchers who think they're gonna die if they don't eat that steak. Get real, it's the other way around. Even my little cousin knows you can get cancer in your tummy by eating red meat since it rots inside of you.

But to answer the stupid question "Where do you get your protein from", well genius, we vegetarians get it from beans, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. I know those thing don't come with a happy meal and with the satisfaction of killing but HEY we can't all be perfect.
