I've been so excited to share this vegan protein powder round up with you! First off, let's be clear. Vegans can get plenty of plant based protein in their diet without supplementing with protein powder. It does take a little bit of planning though to make sure that you eat enough legumes, nuts & seeds, and soy containing foods like tofu and tempeh. However, sometimes we don't have the time to make that lentil soup or protein packed tempeh chili.
This is why it's perfect to have a lots of lovely vegan recipes to choose from that also incorporate protein powder. Most of these recipes are snacks that you can make ahead of time. That way you'll always have that extra protein snack ready after a tough workout or exhausting day with the kids.
There are a lot of vegan protein powders on the market but I always recommend and use Sunwarrior's Raw Vegan Protein Powder. It's not only raw vegan but also gluten-free, non gmo, and soy-free. I only use their natural flavored protein powder. I think it works best for savory and sweet recipes but they do also have chocolate and vanilla.
Either way, you can't go wrong with a little extra healthy, plant-based protein in your diet. No need to buy those ugly, tasteless and overpriced protein bars from a health food store when you've got some of the most amazing and easy to make protein recipes to choose from below.
So dive in and try each recipe at least once. They won't disappoint!
