Meat Free Protein Sources

 

Do you eat meat? I do and I like it. However I don’t eat it at every meal.

It wouldn’t work very well for me to eat a meat heavy meal like a protein burger before I exercise or do something active.

Sometimes we need protein that is meat free and sometimes we just need ideas on how to get protein in our diet.

So here are 3 of my favorites:

  1. Lentils: they have lots protein (18 grams per cup) and lots of fiber as well.
  2. Nut Butters: almond is my favorite, (7-8 grams per 2 tablespoons) it’s quick and easy
  3. Chia Seeds: are also easy and have 4 grams per 2 tablespoons
Live Good,
