Add More Protein to Your Diet
Most people are under the impression that you can only get protein in your diet from animals. If you are vegan, we know that it can often be difficult to find protein sources. However, at Veganista, we’re here to tell you that there are many vegetables that serve as a good source of proteins. Our goal is to suggest different foods and products to help put you on the path to a healthier lifestyle. Humans only need 5% protein in our diets. A balanced Plant Based Diet automatically provides 10-15% protein (2-3times) the amount of protein we need!
