The nutritional value of meat alternatives – better than you thought

studie_hand-700x467

At the Albert Schweitzer Stiftung für unsere Mitwelt, we’ve published our first big study! The original title is »Ernährungsphysiologische Bewertung von konventionell und ökologisch erzeugten vegetarischen und veganen Fleisch- und Wurstalternativen«.

This is quite a short post as I didn’t have particularly fancy food all the time, but I wanna show and encourage you to eat vegan on holiday or trips abroad, even when you don’t speak the language :)
