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!
