Quinoa packs a punch. A complete protein, it contains all nine essential amino acids your muscles need for recovery. Tuck into this hearty dish after your biggest efforts.
KIDNEY BEAN CURRY 35 MINS
Most beans, lentils and chickpeas are low in the amino acid methionine but high in lysine, while rice is low in lysine but high in methionine. Together, however, they add up to a perfect source of protein.

SPICY AVOCADO & QUORN WRAPS 13 MINS
A worthy substitute for chicken or beef, Quorn is another complete protein powerhouse. Just be sure to pick Quorn fillets from the specifically vegan range as some still contain small amounts of egg white or milk ingredients.

How many eggs does it take to make pancakes? Zero. The secret lies in the protein rich silken tofu and buckwheat flour. Gluten free? Tick. Dairy free? Tick. Vegan friendly. You bet!
