Power Up with Plant-based Protein
Eating a variety of vegetarian protein sources is key to ensuring you’re consuming all essential amino acids. Focusing on complete proteins will help meet your daily protein requirements.
Sources of vegetarian complete proteins include: eggs, quinoa, soy (tofu, tempeh, edamame), mycoprotein, hemp seeds and chia seeds
Throughout the day, incorporate foods that combine complementary protein sources. Rice and beans, peanut butter and toast, or hummus and pita bread are great combinations that provide all nine essential amino acids. Remember, it’s not necessary to eat these foods in one meal to be effective.
