Did you know that plant protein is as good as animal protein?

The big difference is that plant protein has fiber and phytonutrients and animal protein does not.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. We are able to produce 11 out of 20 of them, the other 9 have to be obtained from our diets. These amino acids are abundant in:

  • Soybeans
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Lentils
  • Quinoa
  • Beans
  • Sea Vegetables
Remember plant protein is as good as animal protein but contains no saturated fat and lot’s of fiber that can help you lose the extra weight.
Eat healthy, be happy!
