Vegan Protein Sources

So like the last vegetarian post I am going to reiterate vegan protein sources, as some vegatrian options like eggs, and milk are not subtitle for vegans.

Briefly; definitions of vegetarian and vegans –

Vegetarian – noun; a person who does not eat meat or fish, and sometimes other animal products, especially for moral, religious, or health reasons.

Vegan – noun; a person who does not eat or use animal products.

  1. Veggies of course, lots of vegetables are packed with protein, especially potato and spinach.
  2. Hemp. No, you don’t have to get high to get your protein. But toss 30 grams of hemp powder in your smoothie and get about 11 grams of protein – woah.
  3. Non-Dairy Milk. Got (soy) milk? A mere 1 cup of soy or almond milk can pack about 7-9 grams of protein. Eat with some cereal and you’ve got a totally vegan-friendly breakfast.
  4. Nut Butter! YUM
  5. Quinoa. I kinda think Quinoa is God’s gift to vegans (and gluten-free peeps!), as it’s versatile, delicious and delivers about 9 grams of protein per cup.
  6. Tofu.
  7. Lentils.
  8. Beans – beans and soybean and kidney beans.
  9. Tempeh. One cup of tempeh packs abour 30 grams of protein.
  10. Sprouted-grain bread.
  11. Oats
  12. Green peas
  13. Seeds – chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds.
  14. I’m going nuts!! – Walnuts, hazelnuts, cashew nuts, and peanut butter are an amazing snack always.

Hope this helps some of my vegan angels remember to always do your own research too.

Much Love J x
