  1. I learned so much more about complete proteins thanks to your link! Being vegetarian, I’m always looking for tasty ways to incorporate protein in my diet and honestly, I’m tired of protein smoothies. So now I’m super excited to try quite a few new-to-me proteins and recipes. Thanks for sharing..
