6 Vegetables That Pack More Protein Than Your Beef

Soybean

Protein content: 18g per 1 cup serving (cooked) = equivalent to a 75g portion of salmon or 180g of cottage cheese

Soybeans provide nearly as many essential amino acids as animal proteins do. They are available as fresh beans, called edamame. The yellow beans are the mature soybeans. If you have an option, always try to choose organic soy. Apart from being a source of protein, soybeans also provide us with a good dose of B-vitamins

 

Hemp Seed

Protein content: 31g of protein per 100g serving = equivalent of 85g of lean beef (1 serving)

Hemp seed is an absolute winner when it comes to plant-based protein. It contains all 22 known amino acids. This includes 9 essential aminos that our body cannot produce on its own and must take from dietary sources. It also boasts an excellent 3:1 balance of omega-3, and omega-6 fatty acids. Hemp seeds are also high in magnesium, a mineral that helps with relaxation, blood sugar control and blood pressure.
