    Well I have been a vegetarian for some years now, I went vegan for about two months, but I went back to just being a vegetarian because I am an athlete so I need more protein in my diet (such as dairy products) because I have pretty intense workouts. I want to stay vegan but I don’t know what to substitute in.

    Easiest meal full of protein: beans on toast! 1 standard tin of beans (400g) and two slices of wholemeal bread = 46.6g of protein.

    Adult men need about 56 grams a day.
    Adult women need about 46 grams a day.

    Who needs animal products?!

    Look for these protein shakes called Vega. They are a great energy boost and helpful for athletes.

    @gurt8477 I had this problem when I was on swim team in high school! It’s hard, at first, but if you eat lots of fruits, veggies, beans, lentils etc. then you’ll be fine (and way more energetic and healthy!) Take a look at PETA’s infographic on a vegan diet. http://www.peta2.com/lifestyle/infographics/ I personally recommend almond milk, it’s super healthy and tasty :) And Boca makes some fabulous vegan meat alternatives. Good luck! :)

    Soy milk, beans, nuts, peanut butter, and protein supplements might help.
