#repost “WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR PROTEIN FROM?”
Vegan athletes get this question all the time because people tend to think that meat = protein. But plants have more protein than you think!
-If you ate 2000 calories of broccoli, you would get 146 grams of protein.
-If you ate 2000 calories of lentils, you would get 157 grams of protein.
-If you ate 2000 calories of blueberries, you would get 48 grams of protein.
Now imagine that, instead of eating these crazy amounts of the same plants, we ate 2000 calories of a variety of different plants. We wouldn’t just get enough protein, we would get more than enough!
And for those thinking: “plants have enough protein but they don’t have all the amino acids”—>Ask your doctor if he/she has ever received a patient with a deficiency of arginine😂😂 —
The truth is that if we eat enough calories from a variety of plants we can fuel ourselves with a cruelty-free source and build muscle like crazy!!💪

2520km in 10 days on the fixie. Made it to Katherine tonight. Stopped off at Bitter Springs to give the legs a soak before a 100km time trial to catch the supermarket open (made it with 3 minutes to spare and had to sneak in). Bumped into @katie_jane_stewart who is cycling the world. Possibly heading for Darwin tomorrow but depends if I can force myself to get out of bed... #bikepacking#veganathlete#vegancyclist#outback#australia#biketouring#wow#nice
