Do you really need meat to get Protein?

Note: We originally got these numbers from a newspaper article that had quoted research from Dr. Joel Furhman. Dr. Fuhrman is considered to be a pretty reliable expert on nutrition and wrote out all the nutritional information that Whole Foods Market uses to rate its products. So we figured it was safe to use these numbers. Since we posted it, though, we learned that there was some dispute about the numbers he used, and later we learned that they are likely wrong (though he continues to use the numbers in his own materials). We issued a semi-correction on our Facebook page saying that these numbers may not be correct. Certainly, we had every reason to believe it was correct when we posted it. At any rate, the idea is that most people think it is essential to eat meat to get protein which is absolutely not the case. That is the point we were trying to make.
