The MoFo prompt for day 28 calls brunch “the under appreciated get-together meal”, but only half that sentence is actually true in our house. A get-together meal? Definitely! Brunch is almost always better when shared with friends, whether it be at a restaurant or homemade brunch shared around your dining room table. But under-appreciated? No way! We LOVE brunch! Brunch has been my favorite meal for my entire adulthood, and I can’t imagine that ever changing. I’m not sure we could appreciate brunch any more than we already do – but we’ll keep trying!
Vegans everywhere have heard it, and most of us have heard it multiple times – “But where do you get your protein?!” I even got where do you get your protein-ed by a liver doctor just a couple of months ago! (For the curious, I stared at him incredulously and said, “Plants have protein. That’s where cows get it!”) So, obviously, the short answer is: plants. Plant foods offer more than enough protein to satisfy, with rare exceptions, the protein needs of most humans. Many plants even have more protein than animal sources! As vegans, we get our protein from pretty much everything we eat.
