A cookbook that takes the guesswork out of combining protein sources, to provide delicious, complete protein meals Are you afraid you won’t get enough protein—or the right kind—from a plant-based diet? Many grains, beans, leafy greens, and nuts contain fewer than all nine of the essential amino acids that comprise a complete, or “whole” protein, unlike animal-based proteins, which are more likely to be complete. This is an easy fix: Include a wide variety of plant-based foods over the course of a day and you’ll get the complementary proteins you need. These delicious recipes will get you started on the road to a healthy, plant-based diet.
