High Protein Vegetarian and Vegan Foods and Meals

Check out this video to discover high protein vegetarian and vegan foods. You'll be surprised by how much protein is in a lot of "so called low protein foods".

I'm sure this video will cause bodybuilders and protein supplement addicts to freak out.

Here we have another episode of Craig in the Kitchen. Today we are talking about Vegetarian protein sources, and what's in my cupboards. We've done my fridge, so today we'll look at some of the foods that are surprisingly high in protein.

Most people make a big deal out of protein, and for fat loss it's a tricky subject. We aren't going to go into too much detail in regards to that, but for muscle building, protein is actually overrated. If you're eating a lot of calories, then you'll have no problem getting your protein, even if you're like me and following a vegan diet.

So what are the protein sources that I'm eating?

First of all, we have Ezekiel cereal. A lot of people ask me questions about this stuff, exactly, where they can get it? We have it in health food stores and some grocery stores. The Ezekiel cereal has 8 grams of protein per half cup serving and you all know how easy it is to get 1 or even 2 cups of cereal in your bowl. So, from that alone you'll be getting a lot of protein, especially if you mix it with something like Hemp Bliss, a beverage containing 5 grams of protein/cup. Almond Breeze on the other hand, only has 1 gram of protein/cup.

Another thing I eat a lot of is oatmeal, specifically, Nature's Path organic unsweetened oatmeal. It contains 7 grams of protein per package. If you happen to follow me on Twitter, then you know that I add cashew butter into my oatmeal. The cashew butter is really tasty and has about 5 grams of protein per 30 gram serving. I'm not sure what 30 grams is, but I'm eating this stuff by the tablespoon so I'm definitely getting a lot of protein out of that.

Speaking of butters, I also eat organic peanut butter which contains 4 grams per tablespoon. So, you can begin to see just how easily you can get protein into your diet.

Multigrain bread is another food I enjoy and for each slice it offers 3 grams of protein. Normally, I have 4 slices, so that's 12 grams, plus 10 15 grams from the nut butter, and a glass of hemp milk and I'm up to 25 grams of protein from a whole bunch of different sources of protein.

I also have spelt linguine which contains 11 grams of protein per 85 gram serving. We all know how easy it is to eat pasta as well. Again, this is purely for muscle building. So you can see just how easy it is to get in enough protein, even if you are following a vegan diet.

We also have beans. Beans are a huge protein source, probably one of the biggest sources of everything on the table here. In fact, in the latest edition of Men's Health magazine, they ranked black beans as the cheapest protein source per 10 grams of protein at .13 cents. In this particular can of organic black beans, we are getting 6.8 grams of protein per ½ cup.

If you're making chilli and want to add in some kidney beans, you're going to get 8 grams per ½ cup. So, if you're a big boy, then it's pretty easy to eat a full can of those, giving you over 20 grams of protein.

Wild rice is another excellent source of protein at 4 grams per ¼ cup of dry rice. Also, we have regular quinoa, as well as quinoa flakes. In the flakes, you'll find 16 grams of protein per 100 gram serving.

Almonds, pecans, and pistachios are all different types of nuts that I have in my cupboards and each are great sources of additional protein.

So, if you look at the differing protein sources, I'm probably getting a minimum of 120-150 grams of protein from vegan foods each day.

I'm not preaching, as I'm probably going to go back to eating meat as soon as I'm done my vegan experience. However, I am trying to show you that it is possible to get a lot of protein to stay lean and train hard without meat, dairy, and eggs.

That's all for Craig in the Kitchen for this week. I'll be coming to you with more vegan and vegetarian meal plan options. So, please let us know any questions you have about eating vegan or vegetarian and we'll try to answer those for you in future videos.

Just say no to protein shakes,
