The Best Sources of Plant Protein (Infographic)

We take zero credit for this, but it's too awesome not to repost. As seen on http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-14391/the-best-sources-of-plant-based-protein-infographic.html and originally from www.kriscarr.com   One of the most pervasive myths in America is the belief that we need large amounts of protein to be healthy. Is protein important? Absolutely! But in large quantities it could actually harm your health. The trick is to make better and safer protein choices on a regular basis. If you’re eating a well-balanced plant-based diet and consuming a wide variety of vegetables, greens, sprouts, legumes, tempeh, beans, nuts, seeds and grains, then you'll easily meet your protein needs. Please note: If you’re an athlete trying to build muscle, are pregnant or lactating, or are under physical stress, use 0.45 when calculating protein needs (so, at 130 pounds, you’d need about 59 grams of protein daily).
