“Are you getting enough of protein?” is the common question asked to many vegetarians. Yes ladies, it’s a growing concern……many of us tend to turn to vegans (vegetarians) for the sake of our lovely planet and several health reasons as well. But this doesn’t mean you all have to be devoid of the benefits of protein…no! Here’s a list of healthy protein sources that you can implement in your day to day life. Take a look, all you vegetarians out there……
Pulses and Beans
Red kidney beans (rajma), white kidney beans, chick peas and all the other pulses are a great source of Protein. Incorporate at least seven grams of beans and pulses in your daily diet. You can even add a bit of these to your favorite salad or pasta.
Yes ladies, it’s yet another great source of protein. It not contains important amino acids and tryptophan but also helps girls like us fight PMS! 200 ml of milk is highly recommended in your daily diet. If you cannot stand the smell of milk like me, simply add your favorite flavors to it!
A bowl of yogurt has as much as 9 grams of protein along with several other nutrients like Vitamin B2 and Vitamin B12. Yogurt dip with mint is extremely scrumptious and delectable. Why don’t you try it once?
And this is my all time favo! One serving of paneer (cottage cheese) has around 8 grams of proteins besides being a exceptionally good source of calcium.
They are yum and they are healthy. Sprouts are the ultimate food for health. Besides being the rich source of protein, sprouts also have huge amount of antioxidants. Use them in rice preparation or just have them as snacks
Nuts and Seeds
Peanuts, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, peanuts, walnuts….all of these are exceptionally good source of proteins as well as Omega 3 fatty acids. Just add a handful of seeds, nuts in your diet every day, be it curry or salads to meet the optimum requirement.
Who says vegetarians can’t have variety in their eating habits? They surely can….try the aforementioned supplements of proteins for a better, healthier and happier tomorrow!
