A Great Vegetable Protein Source Chart

by Christine Hunt

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!
