A few days ago I was casually chilling at my friends house. Her little cousin (who is about 6) was running around offering sausages to everyone. When he finally came to me, my friend quickly said: "She does not eat that, she only eats plants". The kid looked at me and after a while proclaimed: "Aaaaah! Like those long neck dinosaurs. Unfortunately they are all dead now."
In that instant I thought about two things: 1. This kid is a legend 2. Vegans would actually go extinct if they wouldn't know how to eat a balanced vegan diet. The "most difficult" (which is not even that difficult) thing to find in a plant based diet is protein.
In this post I'll try to make this "difficult" thing super easy by giving you a guide to some awesome, plant-based and tasty protein sources.
1. Spirulina (4 Grams of Protein in One Tablespoon)
Alright, adding powdered seaweed into your smoothie might sound like a suspicious idea. But if you have heard of spirulina you'll get the hype. Besides the fact that it is incredibly high in protein, it is also a complete amino acid source, and adds 80 percent of your daily iron needs.
