Even if you’re not a vegetarian or vegan, everyone can benefit from eating less meat and substitute it with more vegan protein-rich food.

  • Maybe you’ve started Meatless Mondays for 2019, but are confused about getting enough protein.
  • Or you’re trying to reduce your risk of heart disease by cutting out red meat, but don’t know where to start.
  • Are you a vegan or vegetarian who is in a slump and in need of some inspiration for vegan protein-rich food?
  • Maybe you’re an omnivore who is worried that your plant-eating friends aren’t getting enough protein.

If so, this video on vegan protein sources is just for YOU!

New to Plant-Based Meals?

I know how I feel when eating plant-based, but I’m not a doctor. So I’ll let the experts have a say! The Harvard Medical School has this to say, in support of transitioning to vegan sources of protein:

You don’t have to replace all of the meat in your diet with plant-based protein; switching out even one serving of red meat per day can make a big difference. “You can reduce your risk of heart attack significantly by substituting half a cup of beans or an ounce of nuts for one serving of red meat per day,” says Kathy McManus, director of the Department of Nutrition for Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Happy cooking, my friend!

I'm a tacotarian, a mom and pun-maker. Feeding people is my love language, and I'm passionate about helping people feel confident in being their own kind of vegan/vegetarian. I'm commonly found in the school pick-up lane, bulk buying tortilla chips and in front of the fireplace.
