Here is a simple guide for all things Vegan Protein! Let’s start with the basics:
What is Vegan Protein?
Vegan protein is a protein powder that does not contain any meat, eggs, or dairy. It’s made out of plant-based ingredients to ensure that individuals following a plant-based diet (or anyone that wants to) can reap the benefits of protein powder. There are countless vegan proteins on the market all derived from different plant-based sources, we’ll get to why you should choose ours in a minute.
Where Does Our Vegan Protein Come From?
Our vegan proteins are derived from pea protein, pumpkin seed protein, sunflower seed protein and watermelon seed protein! It’s a smooth blend packed with 20-22g of high quality, low temperature processed protein.

Protein powders are not all created equal. In fact, the majority out there are.. Not so great. The ingredients used, the quality of said ingredients, and the way in which they are processed all vary across the board. Some use low quality ingredient sources and/or high temperature processing in order to produce in bulk for cheap, this way they make the most profit of each tub. Ours are made with the highest quality ingredients and are low-temperature processed to ensure you get the most out of each scoop. Our proteins are also produced in a GMP certified and FDA accredited facility and are third party tested in an ISO 17025 lab. It’s important that you find a company that openly educates you on the ingredients used and third-party tests to confirm what’s on the label is what’s inside the tub.
How Much Protein Should I be Consuming Each Day?

What Foods Are High in Plant-Based Protein?
When living a plant based lifestyle, sometimes it can be difficult to achieve your daily protein intake, but it’s definitely not impossible! Here are a just few foods that are vegan and high in protein:
- Black Beans
- Whole Grains (quinoa, rice, and oats are great options)
- Veggies (not all veggies are higher in protein, but broccoli, asparagus, and brussel sprouts all have a higher protein content)
- Nuts or Nut Spreads
We understand that it can be a struggle to consume enough protein through whole foods each and every day, especially when you don’t eat meat. This is why we wanted to create a product that anyone can use to make sure they are filling in any nutritional gaps and hitting those protein goals.
Keep in mind, yes, you do need to be consuming an ample amount of protein in an all plant-based diet, but carbohydrates and fats are just as important!
