A widespread mistake is that a vegan diet is leading to an insufficient supply of protein. Nonetheless, there are a variety of plant-based alternatives that contain just as much protein as animal products. Especially, lentil, beans, soy, and tofu are excellently suited to provide the body with protein.
By combining different plant protein sources even an amino acid profile can be achieved which is comparable to that of animal products! By eating a vegan diet it is possible to cover without problems the protein requirements with the right food combinations. As you can see, the prejudices are completely unfounded and it only takes small adjustments to make vegan diet suitable for people who do sports.
Although some athletes still smile on vegans and vegan bodybuilding, the trend is clear. More and more athletes are convinced of the benefits of the vegan diet. Probably it is only a matter of time before the stubborn prejudices once and for all get out of the way.

A chilla is a popular Indian snack that’s full of flavor and texture. When the batter is loaded with shredded vegetables, the result is thick and pancake-like.

Do not be intimidated by sprouting mung beans. The technique is simply to soak them for 1/2 day and then keep them wrapped in a towel in a warm environment for another 1/2 day. After this day of preparation the beans will have sprouted and are ready for use. If you cannot prepare the sprouted mung beans right away then store them in the refrigerator for up to a few days.

OK, even the easiest of shepherd’s pies can feel like an undertaking. To make this delicious, hearty dish a lot more accessible, try cooking the lentils and prepping the vegetables one day in advance.
