“Better” Sources of Protein

Share This Post

If you’re vegetarian, vegan, on a budget, or having trouble finding uncontaminated and environmentally sustainable meats, a great alternative protein source is plants. Plant sources such as beans, legumes, nuts and seeds are affordable and high in protein content. When you are opting for rice/beans as a protein substitute, make sure you are consuming the two together. Separately, beans and rice are not a complete protein. However, when these two pantry staples are consumed together, they consist of all nine essential amino acids; thus, making it a complete protein. One cup of beans and rice create approximated 12 grams of protein.

If your diet allows for meat, consider wild fish twice a week. As well as natural or free-range chicken, buffalo, game meats, and very lean cuts of beef and pork. Lean cuts are essential because most toxins and pollutants are stored in the fat.
