蛋白質無處不在 Where do you get your protein?

誰說蛋白質只來至肉類?
其實很多蔬菜、豆、果仁都含有豐富蛋白質,好像西蘭花、豆腐、芥菜、藜麥。

Protein isn’t just meat!! But it can also be found in vegetables! Take a look!

也許你會認為蜜蜂數量持續下降與你無關, 但實情是,蜜蜂在農業生產中擔當著很重要的角色,這更是直接影響到我們的食物供應。

愛因斯坦曾警告,一旦蜜蜂消失,人類可在四年內滅亡。

透過種植圖中植物,包括香草,如:薰衣草,薄荷,鼠尾草,香菜,百里香,茴香,琉璃苣;長年開花植物,如:藏紅花,毛茛,紫菀,蜀葵,海葵,雪花蓮,天竺葵; 一年開一次花的植物,如:金盞花,罌粟花,向日葵,百日草,醉蝶花,天芥菜花等,可以幫助蜜蜂繁殖,最終受惠的會是人類。

Save Bees, Save Us.
