Trust me, if I'm not eating meat, I'm most likely paying attention to the parts of my diet that would ask if I am getting enough protein. What is interesting is that with the standard American diet, one does NOT ask themselves if they are getting enough of the necessary nutrients they are surely missing by deleting whole categories of foods like fruit and vegetables.
Rest assured, protein guides, this entire pot contains 26 grams of protein, and 2 of us eat it, though it could easily be divided into more. I'm covered. See? You totally can eat real food and enjoy it.
