So, you’ve decided to go vegan. But, what about protein?

Needless to say, protein plays a significant role within our body. Known as the “building blocks” of life, protein is responsible for our skin, cartilage, hair and nails. It also helps form important enzymes, hormones, and new tissues within our body. Most notably, protein helps build and maintain our muscles, and forms red blood cells to carry oxygen to all parts of our body. Our body requires 20 amino acids, the most basic units of protein, in order to carry out body functions.
