    I won’t lie, last year I was inches away from cannibalism I loved meat so much. This year my friend introduced me to the peta2 program and I finally started looking into it and now I’ve discovered the hardships the poor animals I’ve ate–hard on me in both ways (emotionally and health), I decided to give up on meat. I’ve always been an animal lover, despite my old diet. But the thing is, is what has enough protein and iron and other stuff meat provides? I know there is a lot of stuff that contains it, but I don’t know what.
    Thanks for the help 🙂

    Both of these PETA guides are superhelpful for figuring out where to get stuff like protein, calcium and iron…
    Plus you can add protein powder to all sorts of things. It comes in flavors too so it’s easy to make smoothies, puddings, etc…
    Cheers for you for going meat-free! 🙂

    As long as you eat a healthy, balanced diet, you’ll definitely get enough protein – it’s in EVERYTHING! But if you need extra protein (if you’re sporty etc.) then the most obvious food is beans (of any variety).

    As for iron, most breakfast cereals, fruit juices and dairy substitutes are fortified with vitamins and minerals (such as iron) but for a boost then dark and leafy green vegetables like kale and broccoli are full of the stuff.

    Good luck!
