Today we're mixing up our meals and adding in a dose of plant protein. A well-balanced plant-based diet is full of greens, nuts, seeds, grains, and beans. Each of these supplies protein to the body to build and repair muscle, plus added fiber to keep us feeling full. And the rad research-based perk that diets rich in plant protein can help prevent cancer, lower blood pressure, and prevent and reverse heart disease. We think its worth our time.
Here are a few of our simple go-to meals with plenty of plant protein:
-quinoa pasta with grilled zucchini, tomato, garlic, and a big squeeze of lemon juice
-arugula, black beans, red onion, mango
-salad with roasted broccoli + chickpeas, avocado, tomato
-add a side of edamame to any salad or meal, always available in freezer sections
Nothing to lose, besides a few points off your total cholesterol.
