Whether you’ve been a vegan for years, you’re just now dipping your toes into the lifestyle, or you’re not even a full vegan put hoping to incorporate some more non-animal protein into your diet, you’ve probably run into one little issue: it’s hard to find quality protein if you aren’t eating meat. There is only so much tofu you can eat, and you’re trying to avoid those fake meats because they are loaded with chemicals. But there actually are a lot of vegan protein sources that just aren’t marketed correctly, and that we don’t associate with protein. Don’t let boredom and monotony with your diet force you off of your diet. You just need to know where to look to get plenty of nutrition, without eating animal products. Here are vegan protein sources you may not know about.
