Top Vegan Protein Sources from Brydie Nathan

My Top 10 Plant Based Sources of Protein:

Soy / Tempeh / Tofu
A typical serving of tempeh or tofu for me would contain around 12-16 grams of protein. Tempeh is a fermented form of soy and therefore is easier to digest for some, and in my opinion tastes better :)

9 g per ½-cup serving
Low-cal, high-fibre, and high-protein lentils can be morphed into a nutrient-dense side dishBlack beans. (Bonus they are Known to lower cholesterol but a diet with no animals products would reduce that anyway)

6 g per ½-cup serving
Permission to eat all the hummus—well, maybe not all of it, but chickpeas' combo of protein and fiber make for one healthy di

Black / Refried beans
7.6 g per ½-cup serving (cooked)
Black beans are also packed with heart-healthy fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin B6, and a range of phytonutrients.
Easy vegetarian/vegan option when eating out at Mexican 👌

Brown/Wild rice/Quinoa
6.5 g per 1-cup serving (cooked)
Move over, quinoa. Wild rice is the protein-rich grain you should be gravitating toward. With a nutty taste and slightly chewy texture, it's way more satisfying, too.

10g per 1 cup serving (uncooked)
Oats contain protein as well as healthy fats and soluble fibre meaning it produces a thicker texture during digestions to slow it down and keep you full for a long time!

5g per 1/2 cup serving
Broccoli's not only an awesome source of fiber, its protein content is surprising, too (for a veggie anyway)

3 g per ½-cup serving (cooked)
Sure, 3 g may not sound like a lot, but for a green veggie it is. It is so easy to chuck a couple of handfuls in a smoothie, stew or curry to get an extra protein and nutrient (iron) boost!

Clean vegan protein (soy/rice/pea)
My favourites that don’t taste like dirt what so ever…are Sunwarrior, Balance plant protein, My protein vegan blend plus many more!
