8 Vegan Athletes Who Prove Plants Have Plenty of Protein
If there’s one myth that needs to go ahead and die already, it’s the idea that plants don’t have enough protein. PLEASE. The world’s largest land mammals are herbivores, and you wouldn’t ask a 400-pound mountain gorilla if he’s protein deficient, now would you?
The truth is, lots of plants are packed with protein, and it’s easy as (vegan) pie to get super swole on a plant-based diet. Just ask these eight vegan athletes where they get their protein. If you’re lucky they won’t laugh at you.
