One of the challenges that people on a vegan diet face is getting enough protein. Sure, there are a ton of vegan protein sources in different foods, but sometimes – if you’ve just finished a workout or you’re short on time – a vegan protein powder can be a quick and easy choice. Oh, and with flavors like chocolate, vanilla and even, uh, the apple strudel on offer, a pretty darn tasty option too.
If you’re not fully vegan, but are considering switching to a more plant-based lifestyle, why not try incorporating vegan days into your current routine before diving full time? Drastic changes to an existing diet can be difficult to maintain for a significant period of time as most eating habits are deeply ingrained, so starting out by swapping out your usual protein bars or powders for a vegan option could be a great way to start.
