Introducing the #proteinflip: an approach in which the roles of animal and vegetable protein in restaurant menus are reassigned
Proportions, creating a balance and variation: this is what it’s all about in protein flip-inspired cuisine.
Do we need to flip?
Something has to change with regard to the human consumption of animal proteins. It is time to find a new balance in the protein portfolio of modern-day restaurants.
Flip te ratio
At Google Food they uses the following definition: to flip the ratio of a typical animal / seafood protein based menu item, by increasing the proportion of vegetables and decreasing the overall percentage of animal protein in the dish, but not removing it in total. The idea is to limit, rather than eliminate, animal and/or seafood protein.
