A vegan diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts and seeds has been shown to lower the risk of chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer. It’s often a myth that you can’t get enough protein on a vegan diet. In reality, beans, legumes, tofu and chickpeas are all great meatless sources of protein.

Even if you’re not fully vegan, you can still reap the benefits of eating more plant-based meals. Try incorporating some of these tasty vegan recipes into your diet, which feature up to 21 grams of protein per serving.
