Eco-Friendly Protein Sources

May 14, 2009

I recently made a soft commitment to vegetarianism.  I’ve never really been a big meat eater, and I nearly always eat either fish or organic meat when I do go for a fleshy meal, but understanding all the resources that go into the meat industry and how unhealthy and unsustainable our meat-centered diets are I had to re-evaluate.  Anyway, my wonderful better half often gently reminds me of my tendency toward verbosity, at least when discussing matters important to me, so I’ll spare you my ramblings.  A meat-free diet can all too often equate to a protein-deficient diet, so this link offers 10 foods that not only offer the protein we need, but also do so in a far more eco-conscious manner.  I also encourage you to comment with any favorite recipes you have using these or other meat-free protein sources.
