Is Protein Powder necessary for vegans?
No, it’s absolutely “not necessary” for vegans, but can be a useful supplement. Let’s face it, choosing a vegan diet is not always simple or easy! Proper nutrition requires planning to ensure you meet all your dietary requirements. While there are a great many protein sources for vegans, getting a good balance of essential amino acids requires consuming a variety of protein. If you want to be a little lazy and don’t have the time to put into food preparation, a protein powder supplement is an ideal way to ensure you are getting enough protein to meet your daily nutritional requirements.
If you are looking for vegan whole foods that are high in protein, consider Black Beans, Broccoli, Lentils, Nuts, Oats, Quinoa, Soy and Seeds.
