The updated Dietary Guidelines for Americans suggests a more plant based diet. It’s not just better for our health but also for the health of the planet. This doesn’t mean you have to give up meat entirely, it just means looking at other ways to get your protein. There are many easy to cook and affordable sources of plant based protein.
Check out this Fit Friday segment with Paul Adler on Ozarks Today for some of my favorites. You’ll notice I shop at Target A LOT. The Vega Protein + Greens is also my new favorite for plant based protein powders. It has made a wonderful substitute for casein protein in some of the recipes on the Team Amanda meal plan for the OxyChallenge.
