Plant-Based Protein
For On-The-Go Vegans

Proteins are an essential energy source for our bodies, but if you live a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, it can be tough to find protein-rich options to keep you full and energized. Today, though, there are dozens of plant-based protein options—many without soy, gluten, dairy, or GMO-ingredients. Here are five of our favorite vegan protein bars for keeping satisfied and sustained in between meals or while we’re on the go.
