Vegans get their protein from the same place that some of the world’s strongest animals – gorillas, rhinos, elephants – get theirs: from plants.
Contrary to popular belief, not only is it possible to obtain adequate amounts of protein on a plant based diet, but it has actually been recommended by several doctors such as Dr. Michael Greger and Dr. Neal Barnard. Vegans can get protein from nuts, peanut butter, seeds, grains, legumes and more. Food products like tofu and soymilk also provide protein. Some of the world’s most famous athletes are on a fully vegan diet such as Lewis Hamilton and Novak Djokovic. For more information, we suggest watching the Game Changers documentary on Netflix. 

The question isn’t whether humans have in the past relied on meat to survive, the question is whether we have to eat meat to survive nowadays. The answer is – there is no nutritional need for humans to eat any animal products; all of our dietary needs, even as infants and children, are best supplied by an animal-free diet. Furthermore, cutting animal products from your diet is healthier for you, the animals, and the environment. Learn more about the health benefits of a plant-based diet At or watch the What the Health documentary on Netflix.

Many people do not realise the cruelty involved in the dairy industry. A cow, like a human, only produces milk when she has a baby to feed. Dairy cows are therefore forced to produce calf after calf, each of whom are taken from her shortly after birth, in order to keep her producing milk. Not only is dairy unethical, it is also unhealthy as it is high in saturated fat and cholesterol and is linked to obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis. Dairy can also cause Iron deficiency anaemia in infants and toddlers. For further information on the dairy industry go to .

There are SO many things vegans can eat! From pasta, legumes, rice, bread, vegetables, to endless meat and dairy substitutes such as vegan chicken fillet, vegan greek yogurt, vegan meat pieces, oat and soy milk, and more. These are just a few examples – there are endless non-expensive and accessible options for vegans nowadays – in your nearest supermarket or restaurants in your area.
