The question on most people’s lips when you divulge that you are vegan or vegan curious is usually; “where will you get your protein from?”
A quick note to stress; I am not a nutritionist and I have no grounds to profess I know scientifically the best sources but what I can share, is my experience and knowledge gained so far.
Comparing my days of when I was a meat eater to now, I can hand on heart say I am much more mindful and cautious about what I eat because I care about what I put into my body. After all, you only get one body and I would like to take it as far as possible in my life. In addition to wanting to maintain a healthy lifestyle, as a health-conscious person, I have become increasingly more aware of how certain foods can trigger cancer and this horrifies me – a subject I would like to touch upon at some point in the future.
But for now, let’s see this article as more of a personal passion. An easy, quick guide to show that your protein source can come from places you may not have considered before. It was much to my surprise when I found these out when I first began my journey and educating myself has really benefited me immensely.
The reason I wanted to put an infographic out there was to show how simple and easy it is to get suitable and sustainable protein into your diet without the need for animal consumption. Also to potentially guide anyone seeking a vegan lifestyle and gift knowledge about protein sources because it’s one of the first hurdles when making the changes. Whilst I think some meat substitute brands are a great way to start off, they aren’t healthy in the long run as it is processed food. Where possible, it is best to cook fresh, simplistic meals using ingredients you can name and see.
