Let me take you on a journey to a place called Protein City.  This is a very special Protein City because it’s 100% plant-based.  That’s right, no animals were tortured in dirty little cages or nasty manure-filled feed lots and then slaughtered.  Your arteries and heart and other organs don’t have to be tortured by their number one killer—cholesterol (and it’s buddy, saturated fat).  But your muscles will get ever so big from this stuff!  And you will become stronger than you ever imagined that you could be!

“But how it is possible?”  you ask, with a glimmer of hope in your eye.  ”Can we really be that kind to our bodies and other animals and the environment and still get big muscles?”  To which I smile and with a slight smirk that one has when they know a really juicy secret that they are about to impart, I answer, “Come with me and I will show you how!”

And I begin pulling colorful boxes of Tempeh and Spelt Pasta and High Protein Tofu and High Protein Bread out of my pantry and refrigerator and tossing them in the air, as I begin to juggle them and giggle with glee (as you notice my bulging biceps gleaming in the sun with every toss of my arm).  ”These are just a few of the fast and easy choices I found at Whole Foods,” I say.  ”And look, they are all organic and gluten free as well as vegan.”  We all laugh with excitement.  ”But wait, there are unprocessed options also” I say, as I begin to pull out nuts and beans and grains like quinoa and brown rice. As I attempt to juggle them, they fly through the air and cover our hair.  We laugh like mad men and roll in the protein rich debris on the kitchen floor.  And for those of you who are not gluten sensitive, your party never stops, I say as I describe the delicious seitan steak and chik’n products that are so easy to find at almost any grocery store these days.  Just then, I glance over at you and notice that your muscles are already growing, just in the knowledge that so much vegan protein is coming your way!!!
