The world of zero waste can be a challenging but extremely rewarding lifestyle. Every decision, choice and action you make has a meaning and a responsibility. But it has opened me up to a range of other green lifestyles that I never quite appreciated before, for example, buying seasonal and organic produce, supporting local businesses, and eating plant-based and avoiding animal products. For me, all of these different concepts are important, and I am slowly trying to work them all into my life, in particular, eating plant-based.
Living plant-based and plastic-free can get quite tricky, and one of the most common questions I get is:
"How do you get enough protein?"
In fact my mother checks that I am eating enough every weekend call I get!
Since I am someone who spends every morning before work lifting weights in the gym, my protein intake is also of considerable importance to me too. And although It took me a few months to work out a plan, I now have a list of plastic-free protein sources that are available in Konstanz and probably most cities.
