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