The inevitable question that every vegan is asked. Whether you’re a full time vegan or doing Veganuary for the first time this year I can guarantee that you’ll be asked this question on more than one occasion.

There are plenty of plant-based sources of protein – lentils, beans, quinoa and soy to name but a few. However, smoothies are an easy and delicious way to get some extra protein in your diet. You can opt to use a protein powder or add natural high protein ingredients such as chia seeds, nuts or hemp hearts to your smoothie for a great start to the day. Here are eight vegan high protein smoothie recipes: Superfood chocolate almond avocado smoothie Recipe by Running on Real Food. Piña colada shake (Picture: Neat Nutrition) 1 cup frozen pineapple 1 scoop vanilla Neat Nutrition protein powder (whey or vegan) 400ml coconut milk 1 handful of ice Simply blitz all your ingredients together in a blender until smooth and serve – it’s as simple as that.

21 High Protein Vegan Recipes for Athletes

berry_quinoa_recipe[1]

If you’re vegan that you’ve probably received that look at least once. You know, the one of pure bafflement as someone looks at you and asks, ‘But where do you get your protein from?’ It’s a frustrating process trying to explain the many ways in which a vegan can get protein into their diet without the consumption of meat, but by then people have already made up their minds that you’ll be deficient in protein and become severely ill by living as a vegan.

How wrong people can be! Being vegan means that you’re probably putting so much more goodness into your body. For years now, we’ve had the ‘meat is the only protein’ myth shoved down our throats but very slowly, people are starting to learn that while protein is certainly an essential nutrient which plays many key roles in the way our bodies function, we don’t actually need huge quantities of it. Only about one calorie out of every 10 we take in needs to come from protein. Vegan athletes, especially in the early stages of training, may have higher protein needs than vegans who exercise moderately or who are not active, but even in those cases, protein supplements aren’t needed to get a decent protein intake.

Here 21 great high protein vegan recipes for all three meals of the day, allowing any vegan to stay as fit as a fiddle whilst following a healthy, cruelty-free diet.

Meat-eaters are being put off going veggie because of certain aggressive vegans, says survey

Let’s just get this out of the way from the get-go. The stereotype of the shouty vegan isn’t true to all vegans. There are loads of vegans and vegetarians who aren’t at all preachy or judgmental, and will happily be buddies with meat-eaters and cheese-addicts alike. But there are some vegans and vegetarians who give vegans a bad name… just as there are some meat-eaters who give omnivores a bad name.  They do this by making the world of veganism feel exclusionary and harsh, scolding people for dipping their toe in through flexitarianism, or lecturing meat-eaters when they’re quite clearly not in the mood to be swayed.

VEGETARIAN DIETS CAN REDUCE HEART DISEASE RISK BY ALMOST 50 PERCENT COMPARED TO EATING MEAT

11132017vegetarian[1]

Here’s some news that will bring a sigh of relief to farm animals: Research from the American Heart Association indicates that plant-based diets might be the best choice to reduce heart failure, even for people that haven’t previously had cardiac conditions. Heart failure occurs gradually and doesn’t necessarily mean your heartstops working. Instead, the organ isn’t strong enough to pump blood throughout your body or is unable to draw in enough blood to supply your body with nutrients. Fairly common, the organization estimates that 6.5 million Americans, over the age of 20, have heart failure.

The preliminary findings were presented at the organization’s Scientific Sessions 2017, which brings researchers and clinicians together to discuss the latest heart health science, according to a release.

Scientists looked at five different dietary plans to determine which cut heart failure risk the most: convenience (including fast food and pasta), plant-based, sweets, Southern (which included sweet beverages and fried foods) and alcohol/salads. People who consumed mostly produce decreased their risk of heart failure by 42 percent, according to a release, compared to those who ate less fruits and vegetables. The other plans weren’t associated with better health. While some studies have shown that a good diet can help decrease plaque buildup in your arteries, this study shows that diet is important in preventing heart failure even for people who don’t already have cardiac concerns.

“Eating a diet mostly of dark green leafy plants, fruits, beans, whole grains and fish, while limiting processed meats, saturated fats, trans fats, refined carbohydrates and foods high in added sugars is a heart-healthy lifestyle and may specifically help prevent heart failure if you don’t already have it,” study co-author Dr. Kyla Lara, an internal medicine specialist, said in a statement.

Using data from a study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the team looked at data for 15,569 people who did not have coronary artery disease or heart failure. Then, researchers analyzed health records from 2007 to 2013, looked at diets as reported through questionnaires, assigned participants to one of the dietary plans and identified records of 300 hospital visits for heart failure.

While you don’t have to give up all animal products, cardiologist Dr. Gary Fraser believes that those who are the most strict, receive the most benefit. In a story on the NIH site, he explained, “The trend is almost like a stepladder, with the lowest risks for the strict vegetarians, then moving up for the lacto vegetarians and then the pescatarians and then the non-vegetarians.”

For those who really just don’t want to be vegetarian, Gianos said even incorporate more meatless meals into your diet a few times a week can help. Your heart, and cows, will thank you.
