Protein is the building blocks of your body but if you have turned towards veganism, you must be hearing a lot about the lack of protein. Let us tell you, the statement, ‘meat is the only source of protein’ is a myth. There are many plant-based sources of protein on which you can easily rely to give your body the necessary nourishment.
Here are the top five protein sources for your vegan soul:
Tofu is the processed cheese made out of soy milk similar to paneer. It has a high content of protein in it with other minerals and vitamins. It also has an anti-cancerous property which reduces the chances of tumour growth in your body. A delicious protein source for you!
Lentils are one of the richest sources of protein. Above that, they are easily available in the market making it accessible to everyone. Regular consumption of lentils also reduces heart disorder risk.
Spirulina is a cyanobacterium, which because of its high protein content, has become an important supplement in the daily diet. Apart from protein it also has Vitamin B complex, minerals, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory elements that protect your cells from premature death.
Oats with its high fibre content is also a rich source of protein. Start your day with oats and give your body the daily dose of protein. It also helps in lowering the cholesterol level and boosts your immunity.
Seitan is made out of the vital protein of wheat that is left after washing off the starch content from the wheat grain. It is usually termed as ‘vegan meat’ in the market because of its texture and appearance. It is quite chewy and cooked just like regular meat products.
