This is one of the best charts of vegetables and their protein content I’ve found. It contains a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and beans and their protein content per portion. Beans and rice make a complete protein so incorporating these together is the same as a serving of meat. Although meats contain more protein per comparable serving of some plants, they don’t provide the vitamins, minerals, fiber and anti-inflammatory benefits that plants do. Getting protein from plants has more benefits per meal than those that are meat based which is a good reason to include more of them in your meals.
To your health!
