8 Plant Based Protein Sources
It doesn’t matter if you’re a vegan, vegetarian, or someone living a no-meat lifestyle. Making sure you get enough protein every day seems to be a common concern among many individuals. Although protein is a key component to helping you body function properly, you do not necessarily need huge quantities of it. I have compiled a list of some plant based protein sources that anyone can benefit from. Always keep in mind that a little goes a long way.

1. Quinoa: 11g protein/ 1 cup

2. Hemp Seeds: 16g protein/3 tbsp.

3. Chia Seeds: 4g protein/ 2 tbsp.

4. Pumpkin Seeds: 8g protein/ ¼ cup

5. Sunflower Seeds: 8g protein/ ¼ cup

6. Beans: 20g protein/ 1 cup

7. Lentils: 18g protein/ 1 cup

8. Peas: 8g protein/ 1 cup

I love pumpkin and sunflower seeds as a sauce base. They make a REALLY creamy alfredo.

@skee292 they just don't taste like anything to me! I guess it's one of those foods that you need to add a ton of seasonings.
