Of course, when animal proteins are no longer part of the diet, you have to make sure that your protein intake is ensured from other sources. A vegan should therefore eat an adequate and varied diet of vegetable proteins, such as those found in beans, lentils, tofu, tempeh, nuts, seeds and quinoa.
Plant proteins provide long-lasting strength and endurance - they give you a boost of energy for the day. Protein keeps you feeling full and is also a cell building material. If needed, a protein supplement is an easy way to ensure adequate protein intake. Of course, specific protein supplements are not necessary for vegans - but they are a handy help in everyday life.
