Why You Should Listen

Even if you think you know everything about protein and plant-proteins, I can guarantee you will find this conversation incredibly interesting. In the conversation, Kathy and I discuss:

  • The problems with animal protein and what is clean protein.
  • Debunking myths and perceived health “truths” around protein.
  • What are the best sources of plant proteins and which have more protein than animal products.
  • How plant-based meats and “clean” meat stack up against beans and lentils.
  • The one nutrient that most Americans actually are deficient in and how to get more of it every day by opting for clean protein.

In summary, this is a discussion about protein that ends all discussions around protein. Kathy shares her insights in an easy to understand way that will help you no matter how much, or how little knowledge you have about nutrition.
