Protein Planet, Carb Planet
I passed by a restaurant named Protein Planet this morning. It’s a cafe that promises low carb meals to the people who come there.
It struck me that this restaurant exists in the middle of a vast metropolitan area, a high carb, low protein environment. Something in our species wants to pave over protein, encapsulate it in artificial plains of rock over which we drive in vehicles powered by burning pure carbs.
Is the only way that we can persist in our low protein environment to eat a high protein snack? Can we find protein anywhere besides a dinner plate?
