Best Vegan Protein Sources

Nuts and seeds

Nuts and seeds are naturally rich in protein. You can eat them raw or add them to various foods, such as a smoothie, oatmeal, or salad.

Nondairy milks

A growing number of nondairy milks are available today, but not all of them are great sources of protein. 

Legumes

Legumes, which include beans, peas, and lentils, are great sources of protein for people on plant-based diets.

Soy products

Soy foods like tofu and tempeh work well in breakfast scrambles, roasted in the oven, and in stir-fries, burritos, and sandwiches

High protein grains

Whole grains are an excellent choice to supplement your protein intake. Spelt, teff, amaranth, and quinoa are all particularly high in protein.

fruits & vegetables

Incorporating more fruits and veggies into your diet is a great way to meet your protein needs. Guava is particularly rich in protein.
