Vegetarians and Protein

I haven’t blogged about the Vegetarian Adventure (it is still going well and is so easy to maintain in this season of fresh tasty veggies and fruits) in a while and thought I would do so today on a common question or statement I hear about being vegetarian, "But how do you get protein?" or "I would be a vegetarian, but I need my protein."  I once thought the same way and looked into the issue while researching the vegetarian diet.  What I found was that there is more than enough protein in a vegetarian or vegan diet and is actually better for you than animal protein.  There are lots of articles out there about it, but this link seems to sum up the issue well.
