If you’ve ever told anyone that you’re trying to eat more plants, you’ve probably heard this question: “How will you get any protein?” Well, we’re here to tell you that there are plenty of plant-based options that are naturally packed with protein. Take tofu for example. Made from condensed soy beans, one 5 oz. serving has roughly 15 grams of protein — in addition to plenty of essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Or there’s hemp hearts, which have about 11 grams of protein in 2-3 tablespoons and heart healthy fatty acids. So yeah, you won’t have to worry about that.

Get all the plant-based protein you need with this easy recipe that’s also great for lunch meal prep!
