Plant-Based Proteins

If you are commit to meatless Mondays (We called it “GREEN MONDAY“) or you are a vegetarian, have you ever wonder where to get the proteins that your body needed?

The wellness benefits of following a plant-based diet, even if it’s only one day a week, are numerous. Research shows that vegetarians tend to have lower LDL “bad” cholesterol, blood pressure, and body mass index. Beans, lentils, chickpeas, and soy – in the form of tofu or tempeh – can all take the main role in your meat-free meal, whether it’s a lentil sloppy joe or a tofu stir-fry. Plus, plant-based proteins can be just as hearty as meat-containing entrees, and they are packed with more fiber and antioxidants.

Below is the high protein plant-based sources as your reference. Don’t just plan Meatless Mondays; instead, schedule them and plan your meals’ ingredients ahead in order to get sufficient and well-balanced nutrition.
