Metcalfe is open about living a plant-based lifestyle. She revealed how she comes up with her meals from ella to Black America Web. “Fill at least half of your plate with produce, grains, or beans, and downsize your meat serving. Think of a stir-fry heavy on the veggies and grains with thinly sliced strips of beef rather than a big steak with a spear of broccoli. Swap in chopped mushrooms or tofu for half of the ground meat you’d normally use in meatloaf, tacos, chili, or pasta sauce. Or try veggie-based dishes like burritos. Simply a diet based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes.”
For many vegetarians, vegans, and plant-based eaters, it can be difficult to get enough protein. However, it isn’t a problem for Metcalfe. She revealed some of her favorite protein sources from her to Black America Web. “11 plant-based proteins include natto, spirulina, tempeh, nutritional yeast, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, amaranth, quinoa, black beans, green peas and lentils. You can also try some of the best plant-based protein powders to supplement your protein intake, such as hemp, brown rice and peas.”
