Vegan Protein Sources

Vegan protein sources

There are a few questions I get asked every time someone finds out that I’m a vegan, and I’m sure many others would agree. The top question has always been, “Where do you get your protein from”?

I’ve finally had my fill and decided to make a graphic I can print off and carry with me!

Vegan Protein Sources Information

I used my favourite resource of all time – Google! And the nutritional information of items in my cupboard. I’m not saying this is a comprehensive list, but it’s pretty damn long already and I think covers lots of easy to find vegan protein sources, as well as a few superfoods too.

High protein vegan recipe ideas

You don’t need to buy specialist vegan protein powders for most of these recipes – they only feature in the breakfast recipes. Every other high protein vegan recipe listed below uses simple whole foods such as those listed in the graphic above! My go-to vegan protein sources are things like split red lentils and chickpeas. We have a constant supply of those in the pantry at all times!

  1. It’s amazing how few people don’t realise the amount of protein there is in beans. Chickpeas are my favourite! Not a vegan but half the time at home I cook veggie/vegan because meat is so expensive! Going to take a look at those recipes you posted now! 🙂 x

  2. This is super useful to someone like myself who relies on large amounts of protein to support my active lifestyle – running, weightlifting etc – especially as I’m also constantly looking for ways to improve and refine my diet, for financial and ethical reasons.

    The only thing that would make this 110% super duper extra useful is a note about complete vs incomplete proteins and how to pair up the proteins you list to get ‘complete’ proteins. Or maybe that’s another infographic idea? 😀

    1. I think I could probably do one with information on the amino acid profiles of foods too, it’ll take me a while to put together though (:
