  • But where do you get your protein? I’m answering that question in today’s recipe video! Each recipe is linked in the description so check it out! ALSO this video is not to tell you that you should be counting the amount of protein you’re eating, or measuring anything out, this was purely done for your information to show how much protein you CAN get from plants. ALSO before I receive another comment about soy being too high in estrogen for men IT IS A MYTH! Soy has PHYTOestrogens which is different from estrogen and affects us differently (we aren’t plants). You should be more concerned with the actual estrogen in animal products, because manboobs are much more likely to be a result of overeating diary than soy. https://freefromharm.org/health-nutrition/vegan-doctor-addresses-soy-myths-and-misinformation/

  • Recently, I also got hooked on vegan recipes, the other day I saw on the Internet “Roast for vegans”, was surprised, went to see, it turned out to be from new potatoes with lemon zest. I tried to cook it, it was just a bomb). Who is interested in the recipe, then took it here �� https://triptok.ru/veganskie-recepty/zharkoe-iz-molodogo-kartofelya-s-limonnoj-cedroj.html

  • I’m actually shocked looking for meat alternative dishes turns out to be more fattening than the meat ones. I must be mistaken I thought the point of vegan vegetarian etc was mainly health benefits. I think I’ll stick with grilled chicken breast and loads of green vegetables.

  • Microwave, cans, processed ingredients, old cooked food…your liver cannot handle all this and that’s why you look older than you really are. The focus should be on quality ingredients not just the protein intake. What about adding high alkaline based foods like arugula and kale to help cleanse your liver from all that processed crap. Yikes!

  • This is a wonderful video, We have an article about plant based protein sources never to ignore https://www.girlandpower.com/15-plant-based-protein-sources-never-to-ignore/ let’s see

  • I see the problem.
    We need a tabulation of the cost for the meals the whole day, compared to three plain non veg meals a day
    If they’d cost the same, you’d have more people follow this diet.

  • I made the walnut salad today after finding this video this morning but instead of the tahini I made a pumpkin seed dressing, was so yum

  • Great video! When people don’t understand that protein comes from nature, I get fed up. U see all that good meat on the animal, but it still carries on to eat grass all day. That should tell us humans something!

  • im trying to become a vegan body builder, i think if i eat 10 of these meals a day, i should reach like 300g of protein without supplements?

  • Omg. So basically you consume about 280g of carbs and barely about 70g of Protein? wtf. Vegans and Proteins are never on the same page. I so want to turn into a vegan but the lack of lean protein just makes me want to pull my hair.

  • Im not vegan and i m not considering being one but i mostly eat plants based meals and i just love it i feel so good my mood is good my stomach is good, and I was looking for new recipes to try and yours look fabulous I’ll absolutely give it a try

  • Muscle protein synthesis rate: 20g in one seating ( 4 hrs)
    So 4 meals for 16 hours could only be able to digest 80g. Rest of the protein will have no impact.
