Vegetarians’ favorite question

My daughter Emma, 16, and I had a convo the other day about how every vegetarian gets sick of the question, “How do you get your protein?” (I bet we hear from some of them here!) I often point those asking that question to my report HERE called “Protein: Are We Deficient? Or Overdosing?” A…
