Protein for Vegans : I was a vegan for almost 20 years. I started when I was 18, so it can get boring. Often combine various protein sources can give you variety as well more essential amino acids Try beans in different forms in like Tofu,Temph,Natto or other protein sources: Setian, Quorn, Ezekiel Bread, Quinoa, Hempseed, Chia, Spirulina
