Plant Power Day: allplants Dishes Packed with Protein 

by Laura Barns

5min read

‘But where do you get your protein from?’

For vegans, there’s no escaping this question. But what’s all the fuss really about? 

We know protein is important. It’s one of the main building blocks of our bodies, helping us grow and repair tissue, while helping our hormone and immune systems to function properly. 

Did you know you can get ALL the protein you need from plants? So it’s no wonder more athletes are going vegan – Jackie Chan, Chris Paul and ARNIE?! That’s a gang we’re happy to be in. 

The power of plants

Plant protein maximises efficiency by skipping the ‘middleman’ – AKA animals. Plant proteins are also complete proteins, meaning they’re packed with all the essential amino acids your body needs to thrive. 

At allplants protein content has always been a big focus for us because we know it’s important to you.
