As a vegan, where do you get your protein?
Nuts, grains, vegetables, fruits, and seeds all provide healthy fuel for the body, and in combination they make complete protein powerhouses that easily deliver this essential nutrient. Whether it is Multi- Layered Avocado Toast for breakfast, Acadian Black Beans and Rice for dinner, or No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies to satisfy a sweet tooth, blogger and recipe developer Ginny Kay McMeans has a protein-packed option for everyone.
The High-Protein Vegan Cookbook highlights the ins- and- outs of vegan protein, including how to build muscle and lose weight, the best foods to eat to achieve a strong, healthy body, and recipes for DIY seitan. With more than 125 protein-rich, plant-based recipes, McMeans proves that vegans don’t have to skimp on this important nutrient.
