Protein is made of amino acids. There are two types of amino acids: essential, which must come from food because your body cannot make them, and non-essential, which your body can produce. Animal proteins, like beef, chicken and eggs, contain all the essential amino acids your body needs – but most plant proteins don’t. If you follow a vegan diet, it’s important to eat a variety of plant proteins to get the full complement of essential amino acids. You can combine these various plant proteins over the day – or even a week.
