The plate of animal products in front of you is not just a meal, it is part of a creature that has another nervous system, can perceive pain, has family ties, a favorite game, a favorite food, screams when it is hurt, is sad when it is separated from its young, and perhaps most importantly, does not want to die at all!
You don't have to give up your familiar taste buds! Eating a plant-based diet is not just about eating grass!
So much so that the diversity of vegetable cuisine competes with animal cuisine. Thousands of delicious and healthy dishes can be made with the many vegetables and fruits nature has given us. In addition, the traditional animal flavors we are accustomed to can be replaced deliciously enough with plant substitutes. World-renowned catering companies are now investing in the ever-increasing plant-based food sector. In this way, animal products, which seem indispensable, especially for those who have recently become vegan or are in the process of transitioning to veganism, are becoming a thing of the past.
So where do I get my protein?
There is a wide variety of plant sources of protein compared to animal products. These plant-based proteins contain neither the enzyme that a creature's body secretes for its offspring, nor the part of the body that can sense pain. As we can see in the table below, not only protein, but also all vitamins and minerals can be obtained from plant sources in a very healthy way.
