Many people often wonder how vegetarians get enough nutrition and protein. While others ostracise or make unnecessary dining emphasis on the restricted food that’s allowed to enter our mouths. I’ve been a newly convert for almost 10 months now. No doubt it isn’t easy, but don’t be surprised if one of the biggest challenges is having to answer repetitive and disrespectful questions from meat-loving/meat-defending pricks. Just as how people avoid nuts or milk due to allergies or lactose-intolerance, choosing to have a herbivorous diet is not any different. Recently I’ve been struggling to get a balance of protein in my daily intake, and the last thing I want to hear is how meat has the most protein. Remind me to rain all over your parade or shit all over your freshly frosted cupcakes the next time you decide to commit to something new or have a life goal. Very encouraging, gracias~!
Since when did everybody suddenly become an expert in nutrition? Pardon me – I must have skipped basic introduction classes of the ‘Protein-is-best-in-flesh 101’.
And who says vegetarian meal options are not as tasty? Here are my totally tasty homemade meals of past weeks, though maybe they’ll be even tastier if I wasn’t attempting to eat clean. Yes, I love photographing food. Asians will be asians. #AZN
