One of the main barriers for most would-be vegans is the concern about whether high protein vegan foods are easy to make and find. Fact is a vegan or vegetarian diet can be a healthy and easy way to get enough protein. Also, going veggie helps the environment by reducing the need for resource-intensive meat-farming. A vegan diet can benefit your health and the environment. And to prove to you that it can be super easy, we’ve got our 3 favourite snack recipes to help you get started.
