Where do vegans get their protein from?

Nutrition

Many people are under the mistaken impression that protein only comes from animal based foods. The truth is, almost all foods we eat include protein! Some foods are better sources of protein than others, but the reality is there is no difficulty in eating the recommended daily intake of protein as a vegan. Even vegetables contain protein and one very good example is broccoli which contains a very high amount of healthy protein.

Some good sources of plant protein include soya, tofu, tempeh, lentils, chickpeas, oats, quinoa, black beans, baked beans, edamame, seeds, nuts, nut butters, rice and grains. A tasty vegan sausage made from pea protein or soy protein such as Linda McCartney’s Sausages is full of protein.
