Vegan Protein

So after writing about the born-again carnivore yesterday, I wanted to write a post that promotes a vegan diet tonight.  This is a vegan blog after all!

So what's the first thing people ask you when you say you've gone vegan?  Where do you get your protein?    Jack Norris, co-founder and current president of Vegan Outreach, and Registered Dietician, is authoring a blog of his own...  JackNorris.com. Fittingly, his first (real) post talks about protein.

According to Norris, if you eat 3 servings of proteins per day, your protein needs should be taken care of.  He suggests not eating more than 2-3 servings per day of soy or wheat gluten products.

So, where do you get your protein?  We get ours from a wide variety of foods.... Beans and legumes mostly (lots of chickpeas), followed by soy and nuts, and seitan.  And almond milk, and quinoa...  I also start my morning with a smoothie made of almond milk, almond butter, a banana, and rice protein powder.

And a special thanks to Joe H. of Temecula, CA who's email alerted us to Norris's new blog.
