Protein for plant based eaters? the most frequently asked question. love this post by @plantlab
It is a common misconception that we have to eat animal products in order to be healthy. Of course, protein is an essential nutrient that regulates hormones, ensures strong bones, and ultimately contributes to a well-balanced diet.
Plant-based sources of protein are free of saturated fat and cholesterol, which makes it easier for the body to digest and utilize for energy. In fact, all plants have protein! As long as you’re eating an abundance of whole foods on a daily basis, you’re getting everything you need and more.
Some examples of plant-based protein sources that we love: tofu, tempeh, edamame, quinoa, rice, green peas, spirulina, seeds (hemp, chia, flax, pumpkin, sunflower), oats, plant milks (almond, soy, oat, cashew), nuts and nut butters (almond, cashew, brazilian, walnuts), beans (garbanzo, kidney, pinto, black), dark leafy greens (kale, spinach, arugula), broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts. ::
