Are you aware of the protein-rich options vegans have? Many people think that it’s difficult to have enough proteins with a plant-based diet. But you really don't need the chicken, eggs, or ready-made meat substitutes to have a plate full of protein. Think red lentils (27% protein, compared to 22% in chicken and 13% in eggs), seitan (18%), shiitake (18%) or peanuts (29%).
Rather avoid peanuts? Substitute the peanut butter for tahini or cashew butter.
