Protein

A question I get frequently concerns how I can manage to eat enough protein while pregnant without eating meat. My answer is that I eat dairy (milk, eggs, cottage cheese) and tofu. This tends to leave people skeptical that I don’t understand where protein comes from – oh but I do.

And here’s an article that explains the Environmental Working Group’s top five best sources of protein and top five worst sources of protein (four of the top five worst are meat, by the way – also cheese, sadly).
