How To Maximize Your Protein Without Eating Meat

If you’re a member of my VIP support group on Facebook, then you’d know we’ve been talking about awesome ways to supplement protein in place of meat.

Many people are going vegan for health reasons, in support of the environment, etc. However, choosing a specific diet doesn’t mean you have to lose the protein your body needs.

You can still get great protein intake without eating meat. Some suggest that protein requirements are about 47 grams a day for women and 56 grams a day for men. You can find out for yourself what amount works best for you.

Here are some great protein sources that are meat and dairy free:

Beans, Nuts, Seeds

1 cup garbanzo beans 14.5 grams
1 cup pinto beans 12 grams
1 cup refried beans 15.5 grams
1 cup soybeans 28 grams

1 oz. peanuts 6.5 grams
1 oz. sesame seeds 6.5 grams
1 oz. pistachios 5.8 grams
1 cup tofu 22 grams
