One of the most common questions all vegans have to deal with is “where do you get your protein from?” It’s funny to me because people suddenly turn into professional nutritionists whenever the word vegan comes out my mouth, but I know most people are just trying to be helpful. Protein is obviously very important for any diet, especially complete proteins which contain all 9 of the essential amino acids that our bodies can’t produce. Eggs and dairy are very good sources of complete proteins, but consuming them comes at a steep cost: high cholesterol, animal cruelty, and environmental damage. Many people assume that meat, dairy and eggs are the only way to get adequate intakes of protein but as we already know, it is more than possible to get enough protein from completely plant based sources. Here are some recipes that have plenty of protein so that our non-vegan friends can stop worrying about us.
