Following on from last week, because there is so much more than 5 ways you can get protein through plant based diet, how do you think gorillas, cows, panda, elephants etc get their protein, all pure muscle, plant based animals. So here are 5 more sources of protein from plants
1. Seitan: Wheat Meat for the Win
Seitan, also known as wheat meat or gluten, is a protein-packed meat substitute that can be used in everything from stir-fries to sandwiches. It's not just for vegans; even carnivores love it.
2. Spirulina: The Superfood Secret Weapon
Don't let the vibrant green colour fool you – spirulina is a protein-rich superfood. Add it to smoothies, energy balls, or sprinkle it on your avocado toast for a nutritious twist.
3. Plant-Based Protein Powders: Power in a pot
For those who want to boost their protein, plant-based protein powders made from pea, rice, or hemp are a game-changer. Blend them into a post-gym smoothie and flex those vegan gains
4. Edamame: The Satisfying Snack
These young soybeans are not just a tasty appetizer at sushi restaurants; they're also a protein-packed snack you can steam and enjoy anytime.
5. Hemp: Seed of health
Hemp has a plethora of uses, not least for our health. Packed with protein and vital nutrients, hemp is a powerhouse. I tend to use the hulled hemp and I throw that stuff all over my salads, soups and anywhere I think of.
Why don’t you try 1 or 2 days a week purely plant based and see if you notice a difference, Now you don’t need to worry where you can get your protein from.
