Protein Sources

A big question for those not taking protein supplements/powders, or vegetarians/vegans participating in the Ten Day Trim is

“What other sources of protein do you recommend instead of ___ or ____?”

I’ve always known the “obvious” protein choices; beans, nut butters, raw nuts, eggs, chicken, quinoa…but for vegans, that list is still pretty limited. I learned in college nutrition courses that SO many nutrients hide in unsuspected foods! So I went Pinterest-hunting for the cutest graphics I could find that show plant-based protein alternatives, and other protein sources in general.

I hope this helps!

Feel free to browse Pinterest yourself for TONS of other charts & alternatives. I just typed “protein sources” in Pinterest search and there were thousands of pins that popped up.
