Sustainability Brownbag: "Am I Getting Enough Protein? Myths, Truths & Plant Based Solutions”

Protein is vital for human consumption, however America’s focus and over-reliance on animal protein is neither healthy nor sustainable for our food system and planet. Conveniently, you don’t have to become a strict vegan to achieve better results! Eating a varied, whole food, plant-based diet will provide not only the nutrients you need, but the protein as well. Join Janine Oberstadt, Director of Corporate Sustainability and Lindsey Fick, RD of Creative Dining Services to learn about how much protein you really need and how to utilize the “Protein Flip” to optimize health and planet sustainability. AQ's Dining Director Suzanne Miracle will also be on hand to discuss changes you will see on campus to help you protein load with plants. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch.
