Protein plays an important role in maintaining our overall health. It is what helps repair and build your body’s tissues and provides the body to carry out necessary functions. You can get maximum protein from animal-based food products such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy foods. Most of these foods cannot be eaten by vegetarians and vegan, which is why people who do not eat non-vegetarian foods must look for healthy protein alternatives.

Vegan diet is based on plants such as vegetables, grains, nuts and fruits and foods made from plants. People following this type of diet cannot eat foods that are produced from animals including dairy products and eggs, which are some of the best sources of protein.
