Sister's Tuesday Quick Tip of The Day: List of whole foods with protein




WHAT'S THE PROTEIN CONTENT ON MY PLATE?

Still wondering if you will consume a sufficient amount of protein if you switch to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle? Yes, you will! Meat eaters consume overly the amount of protein needed on a daily basis. This excessive amount of protein from meat sources may lead to many forms of cancer; heart disease; diabetes' osteoporosis; and, other illnesses, diseases, and symptoms (read "Organic Meats Are Not Health Food by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine). A vegetarian or vegan lifestyle will provide the sufficient amount of protein you need from sources that provide more nutrients than a meat-eating lifestyle.


Tired of the question from others or just your curiosity in deciding to switch to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, "Where does your protein come from as a vegetarian or vegan?"

Answer: From all the whole foods that we eat!

Every whole food has protein to supply our daily protein needs. Below is a list of some of the common whole foods we may eat on a daily basis as vegetarians and vegans, and their protein content.
