There are lots of great sources of protein for vegans. The best are obviously going to be beans, legumes, seeds, nuts, and products made from them. Even fruits and vegetables contain protein. Dark leaves vegetables are extremely high in the holy triad of vegan nutrition; calcium, iron, and protein. Keep one important fact in mind: When you ingest nonvegan protein food (meats, dairy, fish…) your body will absorb only 20 to 35% of the total amount of proteins. Instead of seeing it as food, your body will fight it, which will make you feel tired, lazy and depressed. Because it will use all the energy that you have stored in order to process all those toxins. So how much protein do we need actually? The RDA (recommended dietary allowances) recommends that we take in 0.8 grams of protein for every kilogram that we weigh (or about 0.36 grams of protein per pound that we weigh). This recommendation includes a generous safety factor for most people. If you weight-training and wanting to build muscle your protein requirements will change, to find out more please email our Vegan Coach - This email address is being protected from spambots.
