Any other vegans out there struggling to find good protein sources?



Recommended Posts

I try my best to be vegan, but I am not 100% strict about it if I'm being truthful. Usually when I cheat it's with seafood (pescatarian diet).

I am drinking Soylent shakes right now which are good, but I'm getting bored with them and am looking for some variety. I have lots of ideas for when I get to the stage where I can eat normal, but healthy, foods again, but I'm not sure about good Protein sources prior to that, particularly the soft food stage. I would really love to know how other vegans ( and wannabe vegans) are handling post op. Thank you.

I'm not a vegan, but I do like to balance my animal Protein with plant protein.

Mixing pea Protein Powder and brown rice protein powder makes a complete amino acid.

Other idea... hemp protein powder, Chia seed protein powder, Peanut Butter powder

Good luck!

Hello - I am loving Orgain Protein Powder (I mix the chocolate flavored powder with unsweetened almond milk). Good luck!

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
