5 Sources for Meat-Free Protein

Wanting to incorporate more meatless meals into your diet, but you’re worried about not getting enough protein? Here are some plant-based protein sources and a few ways to prepare each one!

We’ve talked before about meat’s environmental “foodprint.” While I know that a vegan diet isn’t for everyone, incorporating just one or two more meatless meals each week can have a huge impact. One big concern from a lot of meat-eaters is that plant-based meals are too light on the protein.

It’s true that plant-based foods often have less protein than meat, but most people eat far more protein than they need to. The Recommended Daily Value for protein is only around 45-55 grams, depending on your size and age, and most Americans eat far more than that. With just a teensy bit of protein know-how, it’s easy as pie to get plenty of protein with a meatless meal.
