Where Do You Get Your Protein From

Posted by Thomas Forster on

But where do you get your protein?”.......

As a vegan and nutritionist I get asked this question more than any other.

Protein, most simply, is a combination of amino acids and yes it’s true: Animal foods contain all of the amino acids in the amounts we need.

However protein is found in all plant foods, including vegetables, grains, legumes (such as beans and lentils), soy foods, nuts and seeds. As with all whole foods, foods with protein contain other nutrients that you need, such as complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. That's why they're called "whole foods" because they're a complete package of delectable nutrition that takes the guesswork out of healthy eating and offer an essential source of protein...

It's because of these reason that we choose to get our protein from PLANTS!
