“Do you feel hungry and tired all the time? Do short bursts of workout make you feel lethargic and exhausted? Then you might be suffering from protein deficiency. Protein is a macro nutrient composed of amino acids. It is the building block of life. Our body can produce several amino acids required for protein production, but there is a set of essential amino acids that can be obtained from animal and plant sources only. Protein helps to break down the amino acids that promote cell growth and repair. The excess protein consumed is converted into energy by the body. Several researches have also suggested that protein in the form of lean meat, beans, nuts and dairy food can promote weight loss and reduce the risk of heart diseases.

Vegan Milk Substitutes [Infographic]

“As the vegan diet becomes more popular, more people are looking for milk substitutes. In fact, many of the people I know who drink almond milk or enjoy substituting coconut milk into baking aren’t even vegans. They’re people with lactose intolerance or people who enjoy eating healthy real foods.

I always warn people when they try a milk replacement to keep in mind that they have different flavors than cow’s milk. It can be disconcerting to try something and assume its flavor and texture is going to mimic the milk you’ve been drinking for 20 years, but if you think of it as an entirely different drink, the first sip should be very enjoyable.

Because there are now so many options for nondairy milks, it can actually get pretty confusing. If you became a vegan in the 1980s or 1990s, your only option was really soy milk, with the occasional rice milk indulgence. Now there are many different brands for dozens of nut milks, bean milks, and even grain milks. “
