With that said, I was having a conversation with a friend a while back about her health goals and naturally her daily nutrition came up. After lots of questions, we agreed she should try to get more protein in her diet. I was thinking, "easy peasy.". Just add some chicken to her lunch salad she's already eating and done! But then she told me she doesn't eat meat.
What do you mean you don't eat meat?!
One of my all time favorite movies right there.
Anyways, I was a little disappointed with my lack of non-meat protein suggestions for her and with the Lenten season upon us I decided to do some searching for foods high in protein (that wasn't meat of course). These are a few of the more popular vegetarian and/or vegan high protein foods I found:
Weather you eat meat on a regular basis or not these foods are great sources of protein! Green peas have 8 grams in 1 cup. Yes, that's a lot of peas but who knew?
Your turn: What is your favorite vegetarian and/or vegan protein source?
