Where Can I Find Plant-Based Protein? - Britt's Superfoods

Where Can I Find Plant-Based Protein?

In the pursuit of a balanced diet, protein plays a pivotal role in supporting various bodily functions, from muscle repair to immune function. While many turn to animal products for their protein fix, there's a world of plant-based superfoods waiting to be explored. Here are six unexpected protein-packed foods that might just redefine your perception of nutritious eating:

Wheatgrass: Although our wheatgrass juice is not packed with protein it is full of amino acids. The reason we need proteins is to gain the amino acids which we get from digesting the protein.

Our amazing outdoor grown organic live wheatgrass juice contains 20 out of the 24 amino acids that our body needs to function. This contributes to it being a whole food meaning that it can actually feed our body by itself which we think is fantastic!

Spirulina: Often dubbed as nature's multivitamin, spirulina is a blue-green algae brimming with nutrients, including protein. Surprisingly, it contains approximately 60-70% protein by dry weight, making it one of the most concentrated sources of plant-based protein available.

Quinoa: Despite its grain-like appearance, quinoa is actually a seed that is celebrated for its complete protein profile. Offering all nine essential amino acids, quinoa provides around 8 grams of protein per cooked cup, making it a staple in many vegetarian and vegan diets.

Chia Seeds: These tiny seeds might seem unassuming, but they pack a nutritional punch. Alongside their omega-3 fatty acids and fibre content, chia seeds boast approximately 4 grams of protein per two tablespoons, making them a versatile addition to smoothies, yogurt, or baked goods.

Hemp Seeds: Hemp seeds are another powerhouse of plant-based protein, containing approximately 10 grams of protein per ounce. Additionally, they provide a healthy dose of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, making them a well-rounded nutritional choice.

Greek Yogurt: While dairy-based, Greek yogurt deserves a spot on this list for its exceptional protein content. With around 17 grams of protein per 6-ounce serving, Greek yogurt is a convenient and delicious way to boost your protein intake while reaping the benefits of probiotics.

Kale: Beyond its reputation as a leafy green superfood, kale also offers a surprising amount of protein. With approximately 2 grams of protein per 80-gram serving, kale is not only nutrient-dense but also versatile, making it a great addition to salads, smoothies, and soups.

 Whether you're a dedicated vegan, a flexitarian, or simply looking to incorporate more plant-based foods into your diet, these protein powerhouses are sure to nourish your body and support your health and well-being.
