“Where do you get your protein?” Ah, the questions that all vegans (or people who are eating more plants) will inevitably get at some point…usually many, many times. I actually don’t get this question as often as I used to because everyone around me is familiar with the way I eat, but if you’re at the beginning of your journey towards eating more plants, get ready for the protein question.

Truth is, we don’t need as much protein as the diet or fitness industry would have us believe. The DRI (Dietary Reference Intake) is 0.8 grams per kilogram of bodyweight. For me, that comes out to about 45 grams per day. Not even close to the 100+ grams recommended to me by “fitness buffs.”

Of course, you still need to make sure to get enough protein when you’re eating fully or just more plant-powered. If you’re eating a wide variety of beans, whole grains, vegetables, nuts and seeds (and eating enough calories), you’re probably already getting enough protein!

These high protein vegan dinners are full of plant protein to keep you satisfied and to keep your muscles happy! They’ll also teach you new ways to cook high-protein plant foods like beans and soy. Get creative and try a few!
