Yes you can get all the protein you need on a plant-based diet!
Where do you think animals get THEIR protein from?
Plants are abundant in the amino acids that make up proteins – in fact, many plant foods, like quinoa, hemp and spirulina, are considered complete, meaning they contain all the nine amino acids that your body needs to get from your diet.
Plus, studies show plant protein sources are less inflammatory and more alkalising than animal proteins (i.e. they´re better for you). And they are better for the environment too, since they require less energy and water to produce! It´s all good.
