We all know beef, chicken, fish and meat in general is high in protein. But, did you know that there are many vegetable and fruits that are relatively high in protein? Check out the following table. As usual, all Protein values are given normalized to 200 calories.
|Great northern beans||13g|
|Silk plus fiber||12g|
|Silk plus for bone health||12g|
|Yellow snap beans||12g|
|Whole grain bread||10g|
|Silk very vanilla||9g|
|Homemade almond milk||7g|
|Silk vanilla soy yogurt (family size)||7g|
Since each row is normalized to 200 calories, 5g of protein is what you would need in order to meet your daily protein requirement of 52g with a 2000 calorie diet. 5 to 10g of protein would be considered high. Over 10g would be considered a very high protein source, as this would get you to 100g+ of protein per day. As you can see, there are plenty of high protein choices available for vegans. Not all nuts were created equal: peanuts are relatively high in protein and pecans are relatively low.
