A vegan diet is a healthy way to eat and live, especially if careful attention is paid to getting “complete proteins” from foods. The human body will only use protein from food to build muscle if it contains all of the essential amino acids. Animal foods contain all of them in a similar proportion to that of our muscles so it is simple for the body to take them and build body tissue. Plant foods contain different ratios of amino acids, but it is easy to get them all if your diet contains a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Soy beans are one of few plant foods that contain all the essential amino acids, so enjoy this delicious high protein smoothie recipe.
