A Vegan’s Guide to Protein

A Vegan’s Guide to Protein

When people think of a vegan or plant based diet, they immediately think of greens and vegetables (or that’s what I thought of before going vegan at least)! 

When I first switched my diet, I wasn’t thinking about where I was lacking, or how I would fill in the missing gaps. All I knew was that everyone was asking, “how are you getting your protein?” I legitimately had no idea! 

Now, three years later, I can confidently say that I know where I’m getting my protein from. 


Here are some of my favorite sources:

  • Beans: my go-to is a hearty chili with chickpeas 
  • Peas: easy to add to any stir-frys, or in addition to a meal
  • Quinoa: my favorite! I use this in place of rice
  • Nuts/seeds: chia seeds are easy to add to any smoothie

The only problem with this is that I don’t always have time to think about meal prep and scheduling times to incorporate these meals in my daily diet. Through weeks of planning meals that met my daily protein goals, I realized I needed something quick and easy. I’ve found that using protein shakes and meal replacements is the BEST when it comes to getting protein in on the busiest of days. 

When using protein shakes and meal replacements, the main things I look for are the  additional benefits, quality of the product, and where the protein comes from. Everything changed when I found  VADE Nutrition’s Plant Based Meal Replacement - it checks all of the boxes for me! The protein in this meal replacement comes from peas, and even contains essential vitamins and minerals (bonus!). 

Each and every person is different, so I recommend testing out what works best for you! My protein intake has always been on the lower end, so I do my best to make up for it where I can. 

VADE’s plant-based meal replacement is an all in one meal replacement made from Pea Protein, Brown Rice, Chicory Root Fiber and an Organic Power Greens Blend. Packed with 26 essential vitamins and minerals, it is a great source of Fiber, Antioxidants, Prebiotics and Clean Fats. VADE 100% Plant Protein is made from only the highest quality ingredients and is lactose free, gluten free and sugar free, with a deliciously creamy taste!

Frequently Asked Questions

Our Story:

My name is Joe Johnson. My wife Megan and I started VADE Nutrition while I was in college and wrestling for Michigan State, and while Megan was in the hospital preparing for our son to be born. The inconvenience of lugging around tubs of protein or measuring my servings of protein into little plastic baggies was a real problem that had no solution, so we created one. We thought to ourselves, ‘why not pre-measure every serving of your nutritional supplement into a pack made out of a dissolvable food-grade film so that there’s no scooping, no measuring, and no mess?’ When this idea came to us we immediately knew that we were going to be the ones to create it and revolutionize the industry.

Within months we filed a Patent for the technology and started the development of our first product; our 100% Whey Isolate Protein. Megan and I both said from day one of the business that we would never create a product that we didn’t 100% believe in and take ourselves. We always make sure that our products are priced so that anyone can afford them. This is why our products are extremely high quality and fairly priced for the everyday consumer.

Over the years we’ve grown in huge ways, with product expansion and nationwide retail expansion. We even landed a deal on ABC’s Shark Tank from Mark Cuban and Alex Rodriguez, but we’ll always hold true to our vision to make real nutrition really convenient for real people. Our real mission is to glorify God’s Kingdom with our lives and our business and to make this world a better, cleaner and healthier place.
