I have dabbled with veganism/flexitarianism. I think the issue that is hardest is going out with friends/boyfriend on the weekend. I also found that being vegan made me eat more nuts. Nuts are delicious and very healthy but too much of anything isn't good, ya know? I guess you guys have figured out how to not overdo it on the nuts.
Do you guys know how much protein you get each day from the veggies/fruits/legumes? I am just curious. A raw foodist told me that there is the same amount of protein in 1 oz of broccoli as in 1 oz of steak. That seemed impossible to believe, but I think that she was talking about an incomplete protein. Have either of you heard of that before?
