🥦Following our earlier post for #COP26 on #vegetarianism, we wanted to share some insights & quotes from #suffrage activists who *were* #vegetarians 🥒🌶🍅

📣This quote from MrsDespard describes how #vegetarianism was linked to #socialjustice:

​🗣“The #women ’s movement relates to the other great movements of the world…The awakened instinct which feels the call of the sub-human, which says ‘I am the voice of the voiceless.'"

🥖🐁Some #vegetarian #suffragettes who went to prison got better food. Nancy John describes prisoners declaring they were vegetarian to avoid eating mouse-eaten bread.
​🗣“When they said they were vegetarians they were given milk - it was really the milk that kept them alive.” 3/

Do you eat meat or other animal products?
Should you?

Last month, I defended my PhD thesis about perceptions of vegetarians and vegans (short: veg*ns) in promoting #plantbased diets.

Why did I pursue this topic and what did I discover?
Find out in this #ThesisThread.

Why this topic? The widespread consumption of animal products🥓🥛🍳causes a lot of harm:
🐖billions of animals suffer & die each year
🌍it damages planetary health
💙threatens public health

👨‍🔬To reduce these harms, we can adopt #plantbased diets

📢Calls for change by those who do not eat meat #vegetarians or other animal products #vegans are often challenged by the majority of people who continue to eat meat #omnivores.

❓How can veg*ns attract more omnivores and promote #plantbased diets?

Often we vegetarians wonder how to ensure a protein rich diet without any meat .Here is a thread on #Protein rich food source options available for #Vegetarians.
It is a myth that one cannot derive enough protein from plant based food to build a good physique & be fit. +

Why do we need protein?
It is required for :
1)Daily repair of the body
2)Good hair and
3)Good skin .
Hence we need more of protein in our diet .
For a sedentary lifestyle 1gm/body weight of protein & to build a good body approx 1.5 gm/body weight is required. +

Also it depends on our BMR(Basal Metabolic Rate) .It is the number of calories required to keep our body working at a state of rest.
So I have tried my best to compile food rich in protein available aplenty. If you know more pls add to this thread for the benefit of all+
