Plant-based Proteins In My Cabinets Right Now
So many people ask me about plant-based transition tips and one of the main concerns is getting enough protein. Don’t let the people fool you..the majority of us that are vegan/on a plant-based diet, are not about to fall out from a lack of protein.
Also, as shown in multiple sources including What The Health and The Game Changers documentaries, the animals that folks eat for protein, got their protein from eating plants.
If you are being intentional about your macros or hitting specific protein goals, check out this roundup of plant-based protein sources that are shelf-stable, I also shared on my Instagram.
