Protein – An Essential Element of the Vegan Diet!

Protein is a considerable factor in any diet, but for Vegans and Vegetarians, they need to pay extra attention to this particular facet of their dietary needs. There are more than 80,000 raw products that are available for vegans to consume. So, while many feel that vegans could be missing out on particular gourmet treats, this really couldn’t be farther from the truth!

There have been a number of vegan athletes in the press lately, the most noteworthy of which is global Tennis superstar Venus Williams. Along with any other notable names in the sporting world who have set world-records and accelerated in their chosen fields; all testament to the fact that vegans are strong, healthy, and powerful individuals.

How do Vegans get their Protein?

As long as there is adequate calorie intake, it is relatively straightforward for vegans to get their protein. In this post, we give some practical tips and places that vegan protein can be sourced from.

There are a few vegetables that actually contain more protein than meat! Plant-based proteins will also typically contain fewer calories too.

  • Broccoli
  • Black beans
  • Almonds
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Spirulina

There are also many other sources of protein for vegans too.

  • Tofu
  • Soy Milk
  • Nut Butter
  • Kidney Beans
  • Edamame
  • Spinach
  • Asparagus
  • Quinoa
  • Green Peas
  • Green Beans
  • Tahini
  • Black Eyed Peas

At The Good Guru, we sell Vegan Protein Powder online in 500G and 1KG sizes, both of which are formulated using the very finest plant-based sources and delicious flavourings, making them ideal for vegan protein shakes!

    Other stand-out features of our vegan protein powder are that they are enriched with turmeric which may help to combat inflammation and support your overall health and wellbeing.

    We have also created a great tasting vegan oats and berries jar, ideal for slow-release energy needs, it contains pea-based protein and makes for the perfect vegan breakfast!

    How Much Protein Do You Need in your Diet?

    There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. As everyone will have different goals, and naturally be different in size and mass, the answer to this question will depend on many individual factors. Your gender and level of activity will also dictate the volume of protein you need in your diet too.

    There is a range of calculators available online that can help you work out exactly how much you need each day. Also remember that these figures are only to be used as a guideline and the important point to remember is that you get a balanced diet to support your general health and wellbeing goals.

    Are they any other sources of vegan protein you enjoy?
