Where do I get my protein?

If you follow the Standard American Diet, your dinner plate likely has something starchy, such as potatoes or rice, a handful of veggies, and a big piece of meat taking centre stage. So naturally, when thinking about trying a plant-based diet, you ask: "Without that steak on your plate...where do you get your protein?"

How do I replace eggs?

From your breakfast pancakes to the mayonnaise on your sandwich at lunch, to the fresh pasta or fried rice you have for dinner -- eggs are everywhere. The good news is that there's an almost-free replacement for many recipes. It's called aquafaba and it's amazing, and almost free!

What about sugar?

All sweeteners are made from plants, with the exception of honey. However, some plant-based eaters avoid refined sugar, such as white sugar, for health reasons. 

Additionally, if you're eating plant-based to avoid animal cruelty, you may wish to avoid some types of sugar that are processed with animal by-products.
