Plant based (produce based) diets

I still see a lot of the protein myth being circulated. I took courses at Rochester Institute of Technology in nutrition studies to become a dietitian and what I learned about protein was surprising. Is anyone else out there who is on a whole foods plant based diet who also understands the role protein plays in human health? Would love to chat!

    I am slowly converting to vegan. It just makes a huge difference on my system. Still don't know the ropes really though, so if you would like to educate someone on how to have a well rounded diet I'm all ears :)

    I love eating vegan, I feel wonderful, my cholesterol has come down. As to protein, I feel I get enough, with all the whole grains, vegetables. My only suppliment is vit D and B-12 from nutritional yeast . I wish I could go back in time and have started this life many years ago.
