Vegan Protein sources
« on: May 19, 2009, 02:27:47 PM »
As mentioned elsewhere here, the biggest question/concern for those who choose a vegetarian or vegan diet is "where do you get your protein". I get this question a lot - so here is a good start for where to get protein if you do not wish to eat meat, dairy or soy.

Keep in mind that every whole food contains protein! This list contains some of the whole foods that contain a large amount of protein (with all or most essential amino acids) based on weight.



GREENS:

- Spirulina
- Parsley
- Sprouted Mung Beans
- Sprouted Lentils
- Sprouted Peas
- Winged Bean leaves
- Grape leaves
- Sprouted Garbonzo Beans                  
- lambsquarter
- Alfalfa Sprouts
- Brussels Sprouts
- Kale



NUTS and SEEDS

- Sesame seeds (Tahini)                               
- Chia seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sunflower seeds
- Walnuts
- Almonds
- Pistachio nuts
- Cashews
- Pecans
- Spanish Peanuts
- Oats
- Flax Seed

VEGGIES and FRUIT

- Kidney Beans
- Garlic
- Winged beans
- Black Beans
- Lima beans
- Adzuki beans
- Peas
- Lentils
- Garbonzo Beans
- Sundried Tomatoes
- Mushrooms

and the list goes on...
