Vegan Superfoods: The Ultimate List (And Why They’re Super!)
How many times did it occur to you to go to a restaurant where there were only one or two vegan options on the menu? It’s a recurring issue. Despite many people have chosen to go vegan, many restaurants don’t offer a complete menu of vegan dishes for them.
You’re having lunch, and quite disappointedly you find out that you can choose between two options: a veggie sandwich and a salad without eggs, tuna, mozzarella or chicken. In other words, a simple salad!
There are good news for you. At Plato’s, you can enjoy tasty vegan dishes different from all the others. They’re not “without” ingredients, but they are “with” vegan superfoods that will give you the right amount of vegetable proteins and nutrients that make you feel good.

Vegan Superfoods List
What are vegan superfoods and why are they super?
Let’s start by saying that vegan superfoods are naturally more rich in nutrients and energy.
These foods are very useful for vegans and vegetarians, because their diets may lack proteins and nutrients which are necessary for the well-being of the whole body.
Eating these foods is a good way to enrich your dietary habits with the right amount of nutrients and energy:
These algae contains 60% of vegetable proteins: amazing, right? It’s also rich in minerals, trace elements and phenylalanine, which makes you feel fuller.
Almonds and nuts contain omega 3, antioxidants and vegetable proteins. Eating a handful of them as an afternoon snack (or as natural raw bars, like the ones we make at Plato’s), is a healthy habit that gives good energy to the whole body.
Made with soy beans, a portion of tofu contains 18% of the proteins you need in a day. It also contains omega 3 and minerals like iron, copper and selenium. Moreover, the low quantity of fats makes it a great food for the general health of the blood circulation system and heart.
Lentils, beans and chickpeas are rich in vegetable proteins, but also fibers and minerals. They are very satiating, especially lentils, which also have good antioxidant properties.
Flaxseed contain lots of antioxidants and omega 3. Moreover, they are real allies to the blood circulation system and they help digestion.
They are rich in antioxidants and vitamins like C and A, together with iron and beta-carotene. Eating goji berries for breakfast in an oat porridge, like we serve them at Plato’s, is a tasty way to strengthen the immune system and get the energy you need for the whole day.
Who doesn’t love avocado? This very popular superfood is rich in omega 3, satiating fibers and vitamin E, which is useful to have healthy skin and hair.
We’ve already told you many times, but we love to do so! Moringa is an amazing vegan superfood! It contains lots of vegetable proteins, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.
Made with fermented yellow soy beans, tempeh helps digestion thanks to the fermentation process, and it contains more proteins than tofu.

Main dish? You can’t decide: lentils ravioli, soup of the day, cereals and beans soup or moringa tagliatelle? You order the Raviolo Surprise: what will be the filling?
