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!
