Where do I get my protein? | Vegan

I swear, the one question that family members and concerned friends alike tend to ask me is, "Where do you get your protein?"

Many people assume that since I am vegan, I am not receiving the right nutrients I need to have a strong body. I practice yoga daily and hope to keep getting stronger, so getting the right amount of protein is important to me. I tend to eat 3 meals a day, and I try to incorporate a product with adequate protein in each. 

For example:
-For breakfast, I will add oats and hemp seeds to my banana berry smoothies.
-For lunch, I'll either have a bagel and some soup, a veggie wrap, or a peanut butter sandwich. (I know so random).
-For dinner, I like tacos so I use black beans and a pea protein substitute for meat, or I like to make something fun like tofu teriyaki and rice!

Throughout the day I will also snack on some carrots and hummus, some trail mix, or some peanut butter toast!

Anyways, I hope this has all of you convinced that I am fine and healthy :)

It's so easy to be vegan! Watch my favorite documentary, Vegucated, on Netflix or on YouTube to learn more about why being vegan saves the world!
