How do you get your protein?
“How do you get your protein?” just so happens to be the ongoing question that is asked to vegans, daily.
This information is for the people I know who are confused as to how much our daily intake of protein should consist of.
Protein requirements are complicated because the amount we need changes with age.
Infants require about 10 grams a day.
Teenage boys need up to 52 grams a day.
Teenage girls need 46 grams a day.
Adult men need about 56 grams a day.
Adult women need about 46 grams a day.
This is accomplished easily with a plant-based diet. Many people consume way above their daily protein requirements needed to stay healthy.
Try Veggies (Greens),Hemp, Non-Dairy Milk (Soy, Almond, etc), Hummus, Sprouted-grain bread and Tempeh and many other delicious plant-based foods.
