Plant-Based Nutrition: 3 Sources of Plant Proteins to Consider Adding to Your Healthy Diet

For those who practice plant-based eating, soy protein is king of plant-based proteins – but it isn’t the only option. Here are other popular plant-based proteins to consider for a more wholesome diet:

  • Pea Protein: Supplies eight of the nine essential amino acids that a healthy body needs, and like other proteins, it will help satisfy hunger and curb cravings.
  • Quinoa Protein: Contains higher protein content than other grains, like corn or barley. When extracted from the plant, quinoa protein can be concentrated into a powder form for plant-based shakes.
  • Rice Protein: Known for being rich in carbohydrates, rice contains a considerable amount of high-quality protein, which can also be concentrated into the form of powder.

Try incorporating these alternative proteins into your diet to help sustain energy, satisfy hunger and support weight management.

Two of my kids are vegan, and I know they both enjoy pea protein. I've never seen quinoa powder or rice protein in the kitchens, so will share this info. Thanks, Susan Bowerman !
