If you are new to veganism you may have questions about protein, vegans get asked about their protein intake on a regular basis. I realise the issue can be confusing so I will try to answer a few questions for you.
Most people know that muscles require lots of protein, but in fact all our organs require protein for general maintenance, and for making new cells, as the body constantly removes old cells and replaces them with new ones #geekfact
How an animal is cared for from birth to slaughter truly affects your body. Unhealthy animals create unhealthy food. The unsanitary and inhumane practices of factory farms threaten our food supply. Would you knowingly drink polluted water? We must remember that we humans are at the top of the food chain. This means that we eat everything that the animal below us ate and below them ate and so on.
A vegan diet isn't just taking the meat off the plate, it's bringing in a whole range of other food sources and ingredients to make full, nutritious meals, and as with any diet the key to making it healthy is to eat a range of foods and benefit from the different nutrients that various foods offer.
Some good VEGAN sources of protein include;
· Green Peas
· Brown Rice
· Tofu, Tempeh
· The list goes on…
And once you embrace the deliciousness of plant-based cooking, there’s an entire world of whole foods (filled with all the protein you need) waiting to be enjoyed. And remember, to be as strong as an Ox, first you must eat like one. #bekind #govegan #notyourmumnotyourmilk #friendsnotfood #vegan #veganprotein #vegainz #food #protein #foodporn #healthyfood #fitness #fitmum #eatplants
