A veggie wonders…
I’m a 25-year-old girl and am strictly vegetarian. Is there a way for me to get protein without taking powders?
—Shreya Daga, Delhi
The whole ‘you’re vegetarian and won’t get enough protein’ battle rages on! Jokes apart, of course, there is a way. I turned vegetarian a year or so back (my poor Parsi mom still doesn’t understand why) and I’ve actually found it pretty easy to get my protein from natural food: to name a few, paneer, spinach, broccoli, tofu, lentils, curd and chickpeas. Protein powders definitely have a place in life, but you don’t really need them the way people make you believe.
