How do vegans get protein?
Easily: vegans and vegetarians eat food (that grows out of the earth).
The simple fact is that most veggies, beans, nuts, and seeds contain some protein.
I personally know several muscular vegan bodybuilders who weigh over 200lb. And it looks like professional vegetarian athletes aren’t having any difficulty getting enough protein (or calories) either.
There are more protein-packed foods with roots than with hooves, so if you’re thinking about going plant-based, even part-time, things are looking up!
