If you’ve ever embraced a Vegan lifestyle, you’ll be very familiar with the first question people ask- but how do you make your daily protein requirements? The truth of the matter is you don’t need meat to eat a healthy, protein-packed diet… At Komati Foods we don’t simply understand this issue, we anticipate it. To this ends, we have sourced some of the delicious, vegan friendly diet replacements out there for you.
Nuts should be a critical part of a healthy diet whether you’re vegan or still eat meat. These dietary powerhouses are packed with protein and healthy fat, and you only need a small amount to help you stay satiated and feeling great. A single 30g serving can pack between 5 and 12 grams of protein power! They’re also fantastic sources of fibre, magnesium, zinc, selenium and vitamin E as well as that ever-elusive iron. Add in a generous serving of age-and-cancer fighting antioxidants, and you’re onto a winning formula. Cashews, almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts and so much more…they’re all great for you.
Even better, they’re one of the most versatile foods around. Snack on a handful while you’re on the go, or add them to a vast range of tasty dishes, sauces, cheeses and desserts. To stay healthy, opt for unblanched and un-roasted varieties, as this preserves their nutritional goodness, and avoid salted varieties to keep sodium low. The great news? High quality, low processed nut butters still keep all the nutty goodness, and taste great as an indulgent treat too!
