I often get asked where I get my proteins from. Sometimes I’m even told that I don’t get enough because it’s not possible as I would have to eat a ton of vegetables to get a daily intake. Today my non-vegan friend who study her PT challenged me to try to get 74g of protein. I never really looked at how many I consume. This morning I started my normal breakfast with 2 tbsp. of chia seeds with almond milk, whole meal pita bread with vegetables, humus and nutritional yeast. At that moment i realized Nutritional yeast is pack in protein. One heaping tablespoon is 8g of proteins. Isn’t it amazing? After a whole day of counting my proteins I consumed about 70 g not even trying hard. I think its a bit too much. Being vegan is easy, healthy and just feels right.
