hey you guys it’s April with Happy
Healin’ Vegan. So one of the questions I get asked the most is “where do vegans
get their protein” and for most of us, as long as you’re eating enough calories,
probably don’t have to worry about this. However, every single body is
different and some of us may need a little bit more protein. So, in today’s
video I am going to take you through my favorite non meat sources of protein and
I’ll do so in one minute or less. Lentils of all colors, nuts and seeds, nut butters,
a variety of beans, quinoa, spirulina, green peas, tofu, and edamame.
You can also use mock meats and plant based protein powders to meet your
protein needs. Some of the strongest animals and human athletes eat nothing
but plants and they are definitely not deficient in protein. Alright you guys, I
hope you enjoyed my quick video on non meat protein sources. Please as always
make sure to give me a thumbs up, comment, and subscribe because it really helps
support my channel. Also for more tips on how to be a new vegan make sure you
check out my instagram and facebook at happy healin vegan. And if you’re
interested in one-on-one coaching with me, please visit my website below. I’ll
see you guys next week with a brand new video.


  1. Yes, yes, and yes. I love ‘em all. Trader Joe’s has an amazing organic pea protein powder that I add to my green smoothies at home. Amazing Meal is my favorite to-go protein powder, if I am in the mood for chocolate. Orgain makes some good travel shakes. And I love hummus now. Omg. Who knew? Of course, you can’t go wrong with beans and nuts/seeds, like you said. And quinoa? So good and versatile. We have so many options. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love this, thank you for sharing! The myth that we need x amount of protein is just a trend, we can eat all these delicious foods and be completely fulfilled!

  3. Food is a package deal! Sure, animal products have protein but they also have IGF-1 (promotes tumor growth), cholesterol, saturated fat, heme iron, and more negative components. Meanwhile, beans have fiber, antioxidants, phytonutrients, prebiotics, anti-inflammatory properties, and so much more health promoting components. Just because a food has protein does not mean it is health promoting! Great suggestions on healthy food choices <3

  4. Love this! We get this question all the time & I love blowing people's mind about how easy it is to get protein as a vegan!

  5. Thank you for covering this. Love the picture and text approach. Makes it easy to follow. can you do a video on mock meats? I'd like to know more about this.

  6. I'm a vegan-friendly​ vegetarian- lol and I am ALWAYS asked about my protein.  Thanks for sharing this information!
