If you feel you need extra protein, hopefully you’ve been disabused of the idea that you have to eat lots of animal flesh to do so. You’ve been brainwashed that you need to, to build muscle mass, but it’s just that–brainwashing.

Plant foods average about 10% protein, which is ideal. They are proteins your body has to work to assemble from a free-floating pool of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins.
