If you are considering a vegan diet, you might be concerned about where you're going to get your protein. Kathy says there are plenty of options that won't leave you feeling hungry. For her own meals, she says she gets her protein from legumes and whole grains, eating things like black bean burritos, lentil soups and vegan chili.
One thing to be careful of on a vegan diet is that you don't become a "junk food vegan," only eating things like cookies and chips. Kathy says there are plenty of healthy, fulfilling foods available to you, and going vegan doesn't mean that you can only eat salads.
