There is a popular misconception that one cannot get enough protein on a vegan diet. That statement could not be further from the truth. All plant foods have protein. Some more than others. Beans, legumes and dark leafy greens carry all the protein you will ever need.
In fact, 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of weight is recommended for the average sedentary person. So let’s say, a man that weighs 80 kilograms would need around 64 grams of protein per day which is very easily achieved with a calorically adequate, vegan diet.
Here are some plant sources of protein:
People make a huge fuss over adequate amounts of protein but the problem is that western diets include way too much animal protein which can be detrimental to health.
On the other hand, according to statistics, most Americans don’t even reach the recommended minimum for fiber. And you’d be happy to know that today’s recipe contains more than 20 g of fiber per serving!
Plant sources of protein are devoid of cholesterol and saturated fat which makes vegan protein nutritionally superior.
Our meatless meatloaf is packed with plant protein, it’s low in fat, gluten free, healthy and above all, yummy!
Why put your body through the ordeal of processing meat when you can make something that is just as delicious, packed with nutrition, and cruelty free?
This meatless meatloaf is the perfect dish for any occasion! It’s easy to make, affordable, and will impress even the pickiest eaters! You can dazzle your family and friends at Sunday dinner, Christmas or any old Tuesday night!
Most meatless meatloaf recipes use lentils as the primary ingredient. Our meatless meatloaf recipe is made primarily from two different types of beans. And it’s gluten free so you don’t have to worry if you are intolerant.
