High Protein Food For A Veggie?
Hi there. Quinoa is a great source of protein. Greek Yogurt (Chobani brand) perfect!
Here is what I am having at this moment for breakfast: Greek Yogurt 6oz (16g protein), 1/4 cup of Granola (Bear Naked brand) which has 6g of protein and a protein shake (Water & Whey Protein) which has 30g of protein.
Tofu, soy milk, tempeh( all from organic beans), beans, quinoa, buckwheat, whey powder, soy meat substitutes, Greek yogurt, plain unsweetened yogurt, low fat milk, nut butters, cottage cheese. Options are really endless!
You have received great answers so far and all things I would recommend. If you don't do dairy, instead of whey powder try Vega or Hemp. Chia seeds, and nuts are also another source of protein.
I love dry roasted edamame. 14 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per serving. Very filling and easy to take along. I usually have a serving for my morning snack. Also dried peas. They have about 7 grams of protein per serving.
I'm no expert, and as mentioned by karenswim, nuts are quite high in protein. My particular favorite are Cashews. They have good protein and healthy fats, but don't over indulge, as with most things!
Beans are the best... You can't find a veggie product with more protein. You have cereal on the market with a lot protein (ex: Kashi is a great mark).
But I have just 1 suggestion : Don't look the package to make your choice, the company write in big on the package (great source of fiber or protein), but when you look the nutrition facts label you don't have more protein or fiber that another mark, and sometimes less.
Look nutrition facts label in your grocery and you will find by yourself what you love eat with enough protein.
I use whey protein powder for both meal replacement or after workout protein for muscle repair. Admittedly, my IsoWhey only gives you about 16g per serve, but every little bit helps :)
I am vegan, and found a great raw, plant based, no soy, meal-replacement powder at my local co-op that I really like. I add blueberries or strawberries and blend it up with almond or coconut milk for my breakfast smoothie. I have found that I actually don't need as much protein as I thought I needed to feel healthy and have great energy all day.
