Whether you’re fully vegan or just trying to eat a more plant-based diet, it can be hard to get enough protein without eating meat. However, there are some plant-based foods that are a great source of protein.
Tofu is a great source of protein and also has amino acids that are vital for tissue repair. This makes it a great post-workout meal.
Soy milk has 7 grams of protein per serving which is only 1 gram less than cow’s milk has in the same portion size.
Lentils are also a great source of protein. They have double the protein value than quinoa and can also be made into burgers to make a high protein meal.
There are an impressive 6 grams of protein in only two tablespoons of chia seeds. These tiny seeds are so versatile and can easily be added to smoothies to pack in that extra protein.
Peanut butter is a classic option for a high protein option and is also full of healthy fats.
There’s no excuse to not add more plant-based foods into your diet when there are so many benefits!
