The best sources of protein for a vegan diet.

One of the most difficult things for vegans to do to make sure you have a healthy diet is getting the protein that is not derived from animals. The best vegan proteins include any combination of grains and beans, grains and seeds, and grains and nuts. Also, tofu combined with any grain, and Tempeh which is sometimes a combination of grains and beans will provide complete protein. Edible mushrooms are also a good source of protein. Of course, there is also the issue of vitamin B12. This is not a protein, of course, it is a vitamin, but very often it comes with animal protein. The solution here is to take a supplement with vitamin B12 or add a little bit of microalgae such as spirulina or chlorella to the diet.

Takeaway

A vegan diet will save you money, save the planet and make you healthier,
