to know that you can still have access to great sports nutrition products if you choose to abstain from meat. This is why we've dedicated some of our time to sourcing a couple of animal-free alternatives to common protein powders.
One of the major difficulties when switching to a vegan diet is ensuring that you get enough protein. Many people will dispute this claim, stating that there's plenty of protein in plant based alternatives - and they're technically correct. But it isn't just about raw protein consumption. It's about the quality of the protein itself. Protein consists of long chains of something called "amino acids". These amino acids are important for a whole host of bodily functions, including repairing damaged muscle tissue. Often times, it's difficult to get a stable amino acid matrix out of a plant based diet. This is why it can be effective to consider protein supplementation when you're living the vegan or vegetarian lifestyle.
One of the most effective plant based foods to supplement with as a powder is peas. Pea protein is very popular within vegan bodybuilding communities because of how effective it is as a protein supplement. At first the idea may put you off - but we can assure you, it does not smell or taste like peas. These pea based proteins often come in a variety of flavours including chocolate, strawberry and more. You can also opt for an organic pea based protein if you prefer to consume organic foods also.
