Solving the Problem with Plant Based Diets

Solving the Problem with Plant Based Diets

It’s the buzziest thing out there. Plant Based Diet.

Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon.

If it seems like everyone is saying it over and over again, it must be good right? But there is something huge missing from the buzz – Protein! 

Oh and maybe along the way, you don’t want to be too high in carbs either. Most of our food comes from plants already.  Cereals, breads...

Even if your dietitian says, “move toward a more Plant Based Diet,” they still want you to go focus on protein every day, and keep your carbohydrate intake low.

Diets that rely on legumes and nuts as a source of protein are often high in carbohydrates and calories.

Here is a comparison of 5 ways to get 90 grams of protein (30 grams, high quality protein, 3 times per day is our minimum recommendation):

All of these contain 90 grams of protein

5. Almonds - 3 full cups
