Are you getting enough protein in your diet?
Do you think you can only get protein from eating meat?
Do you know the difference between eating meat protein and eating plant protein?
In this week’s episode of Eat Juicy TV, we meet my friend Jay who is an athlete (Mixed Martial Arts Fighter) and who is on a plant based diet and feeling great.
I love meeting people, especially athletes who are thriving on a RAW FOOD VEGAN diet and getting tons of plant based protein into their diet.
