My perspective of veganism was most affected by learning that the veal calf is a by-product of dairying, and that in essence there is a slice of veal in every glass of what I had thought was an innocuous white liquid – milk. ~ Rynn Berry

That’s something to think about on this 30-day vegan journey each time you look at a carton of milk. It’s not your friend and you can live without meat. The same protein you crave in meat and dairy you can safely enjoy in beans and vegetables.  MindBodyGreen share their top ten on the best sources of vegan protein: 

  • Veggies: Yep, good old greens will pack a protein punch. One cup of cooked spinach has about 7 grams of protein. The same serving of French beans has about 13 grams. Two cups of cooked kale? 5 grams. One cup of boiled peas? Nine grams. You get the idea.
  •  Hemp. No, you don’t have to get high to get your protein. But toss 30 grams of hemp powder in your smoothie and get about 11 grams of protein – just like that.
  • Non-Dairy Milk. Got (soy) milk? A mere 1 cup of soy or almond milk can pack about 7-9 grams of protein. Eat with some fortified cereal and you’ve got a totally vegan-friendly breakfast.
  • Nut Butter. Eat up your peanut butter, almond butter and cashew butter. A couple of tablespoons of any one of these will get you 8 grams of protein.
  • Quinoa. I kinda think quinoa is God’s gift to vegans (and gluten-free peeps!), as it’s versatile, delicious and delivers about 9 grams of protein per cup. Read moremindbodygreen
I’ve tried each of these protein alternatives and I love them. The best part about consuming them is the zero guilt and zero worry factor. They are safer and healthier for your body.
Here’s what’s for breakfast:
Fig and Mint Oatmeal / Sliced Melon
Happy vegan eating!
