Watch the video above for some high protein vegan meal ideas 🙂
If you’re a vegan, you probably can agree that one of the most annoying questions and concerns we get from others is where we get our protein and whether or not we get enough protein. As irritating as that question/concern may be, sometimes it’s important to take a step back and realize that maybe it does have some validity in that most people actually DON’T know how to get protein as a vegan.
What I’m saying is that instead of dismissing the question or concern completely and rolling our eyes (as I have also done before), maybe we need to actually answer it properly. Let’s face it – most of us haven’t grown up eating a plant-based diet and probably needed some time to adjust and learn about what works for them in the world of plant-based eating. If we grew up eating animal products as our main source of protein, then it might be a legitimate concern or question as to how to replace those animal proteins with plant-based ones.
While it is obvious to us vegans that there are plenty of plant-based protein sources, I don’t think it is obvious to the general public what those sources are and how to get them. Whilst I don’t think people should concern themselves with protein DEFICIENCY, I think it is important for people to understand that animal proteins do need to be replaced with plant-based proteins in order to feel satiated and satisfied…
Anyway, in the video above, I take you through a day of eating where I show different sources of plant-based protein and how I structure my meals. This is a typical way of eating for me and to me it’s really important to add a good source of protein to each meal to feel full and have sustained energy. Obviously, our needs are different depending on so many different factors but this is just an example of how I eat and what works for me.
Hope you enjoy the video! Don’t forget to watch my other “What I Eat in a Day” and “What I Eat in a week” videos for more food inspiration!
