In January 2022, Nourished’s founder and CEO Melissa Snover shared expert nutritional advice with the Daily Star on the best protein sources when following a vegan diet.
Nutritionist Explains Best Protein-Rich Foods
“Tofu is a fantastic ‘complete’ protein source, containing all the amino acids our body needs for immunity, growth, and repair. The protein in tofu is also easily digestible, with some research likening it to that of meat proteins.”

Hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds are just a few examples of high-protein nuts and seeds.
