15 Plant Powered Recipes

If your experience is anything like mine you probably get asked the most common vegan question in the world . . . where do you get your protein? Or maybe your thinking about switching diets and this is something you’d like to know more about.  

I don’t want to get too much into the details, nor do I want to pretend to be a nutritionist, but the difference between plant and animal protein is worth discussing as well. You may have heard others tell you that the protein is different in animal products compared to plants. No need to dispute this because I believe there is truth to this! However, the difference between the protein sources shouldnt deter you from choosing a plant based diet. The difference people are referring to is probably that of amino acids. There are different amino acid profiles in all sorts of protein sources, both plant and animal! I think some people tend to believe animal proteins have a more complete amino acid profile, but there are great plant based sources with complete profiles as well. One key point here that I believe in is that it’s important to mix up your plant protein sources to ensure you’re getting the nutrition you need.

Now, as important as it is to focus on what plant based proteins are providing your body, it may be nearly as important to understand what it’s NOT putting in your body. Saturated fat and cholesterol are some very important factors here. As always, I encourage you to learn more about anything you decide to base your diet around.
