Those of us here at Tuesday’s Horse and the Fund for Horses who are vegan have been vegan for so long it is as natural as breathing. There are a bit over two-thirds of us altogether.
One question we are asked by potential vegans is a very common one. You got it. Where do you get your protein from? Here are the food groups:-
• legumes and grains.
• legumes with nuts and/or seeds.
Legumes are a family of plants used for food. They include peanuts, soya, lupin, green beans, green peas and fenugreek. Dried seeds known as pulses are also part of the legume family. These include chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans and other dried beans. And you know what chickpeas are used for —hummus!
Tasty video —
You may want to turn your sound down. It has music. It also goes at a snappy rate. We got paper and pencil and made note of the ingredients the second time around. Enjoy.
Breakfast and lunch
Around here smoothies, and particularly smoothie bowls, are the most common breakfasts; then its on to veggie burgers with fries, or veggie wraps and wonderful soups for lunch.
We hope the video above gave you ideas you can use. We will be focusing on dinner time recipes in our next posts.
