Thank you
Not healthy. Not muscle building. Humans are by design carnivorous, we have prey targeting front facing eyes and sharp teeth for tearing chunks of meat. In fact, you would be healthier swearing of all vegetation than you would being vegetarian. Also, soy will literally turn you into a bitch.

Here is some further reading on how awesome it is to be a carnivore and how crappy vegetarianism is for humans:

My recommendation is to get your wife out of the cult that turned her onto this and eat a steak ASAP.
