18 Vegan sources of protein

18 Vegan sources of protein

I rely a lot on meat and fish to get protein. AND I'M NOT SORRY. Animals are delicious. But for the sake of variety I've been trying to diversify my protein sources to include not-animals. Here's a bunch.

Soy beans: 1 cup = 68 grams of protein

Pinto beans: 1 cup = 41 grams, incomplete low in methionine/high in lysine so eat with rice

Chickpeas: 1 cup - 39 grams

Seitan, 1/3 cup - 21 grams (could it be... SATAN??? Heh)

Tofu: 1 cup = 20 grams

Lentils: 1 cup = 18 grams

Chia seeds: 100 grams = 16 grams

Farro: 1 cup, cooked = 14 grams

Mycoprotein (quorn), 1/2 cup cooked = 13 grams

Hemp hearts: 3 tablespoons = 10 grams, incomplete because low in lysine

Pumpkin seeds, 1 ounce shelled = 9 grams

Quinoa: 1 cup, cooked = 8 grams

Ezekiel bread, 2 slices = 8 grams

Peas, 1 cup = 8 grams

Peanut butter, 2 tablespoons = 7 grams

Buckwheat, 1 cup = 6 grams

Almonds, 1 ounce = 6 grams

Cashews, 1 ounce = 5 grams
