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.
- Veggies of course, lots of vegetables are packed with protein, especially potato and spinach.
- 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.
- 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.
- Nut Butter! YUM
- 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.
- Beans – beans and soybean and kidney beans.
- Tempeh. One cup of tempeh packs abour 30 grams of protein.
- Sprouted-grain bread.
- Green peas
- Seeds – chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds.
- 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
