"But where do you get your proteins from?"
Hi and Hello! Anyone who has read our posts will have stumbled upon this question ;) As you can read in the headline, today’s topic is nutrients. Unfortunately, vegan nutrition is often associated with malnutrition. That’s why we want to show you how you can feed yourself vegan AND nutritious :)
