How Do I Give up Meat, but Keep My Protein High?

With so many people eating an excess in animal meat which is now being highly linked to premature ageing and earlier death (due to activation of mTOR- for all you other nerds out there- but keep an eye out for my soon to be released book “A Diet in Paradise” which explains this whole health event), how do you take a break from meat without jeopardising your protein levels? You make sure you’re having a ‘complete protein’ 3 times a day. A complete protein is found not only in meats, chicken and fish, but in eggs, dairy and pure vegetarian types such as combining: a legume with a grain in a meal, or mixing a legume with nuts/seeds in a meal. This allows you to keep your weight loss/muscle building goals, whilst giving your body a break from all the animal flesh =)
