5. Chia seeds– Chia seeds are considered a ‘superfood’ because of being rich in many essential nutrients. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids for vegans. They contain 6 grams of protein and 13 grams of fibre per 35 grams. As a bonus, they contain a healthy amount of iron, magnesium, and calcium as well.
6. Fruits and vegetables– Although vegetables don’t have as much protein as soy but some vegetables have more other essential nutrients and minerals which are required for healthy living. Vegetables such as pea, spinach, broccoli, sprout, mushroom, asparagus, and artichokes have comparatively good protein value in them. Fruits normally contain less protein as compared to vegetables. But some fruits such as jackfruit, prunes, dried cherries, guava, and banana do have good protein content in them along with other essential vitamins and minerals.
7. Oats– Protein can be made delicious through oats. They contain nearly 6 grams of protein and 4 grams of fibre in 120 ml of dry oats. They are good sources of zinc, magnesium, and phosphorus as well. Oats can be used in a variety of recipes and can be used for baking as well.
8. Quinoa- Quinoa is another very good source of proteins. It has 8 grams of proteins for 1 serving size cup. Amazingly it has a secret advantage, it is gluten-free whole grain packed with vitamins, mineral, and fibre. It is another perfect addition to a vegan healthy diet.
