In this video, we’re going to talk about plant-based proteins. I typically think a person should have about 20-25g of protein per meal. The idea is to have lower amounts of sugary foods and higher amounts of protein if you’re a vegan. Download the chart I put together for more plant-based protein sources.

Plant-based vegan protein sources:

• Lentils — 1 Tbs = 1.1g
• Tofu — ½ cups = 10g
• Quinoa — ½ cups = 8g
• Hemp — 4 Tbs = 12g
• Sunflower Seeds — ½ cup = 6g
• Pumpkin Seeds — ½ cup = 6g
• Chia Seeds — 1oz. = 5g
• Mixed Nuts — ½ cup = 14g
• Almond Butter — 1 Tbs = 3.4g
• Hummus — 1 Tbs = 1.2g
• Tempe — ½ cup = 15g
