In this video, we’re going to talk about plant-based proteins. I typically think a person should have about 20-25g of protein per meal. The idea is to have lower amounts of sugary foods and higher amounts of protein if you’re a vegan. Download the chart I put together for more plant-based protein sources. 

Plant-based vegan protein sources:

• Lentils — 1 Tbs = 1.1g
• Tofu — ½ cups = 10g
• Quinoa — ½ cups = 8g
• Hemp — 4 Tbs = 12g
• Sunflower Seeds — ½ cup = 6g
• Pumpkin Seeds — ½ cup = 6g
• Chia Seeds — 1oz. = 5g
• Mixed Nuts — ½ cup = 14g
• Almond Butter — 1 Tbs = 3.4g
• Hummus — 1 Tbs = 1.2g
• Tempe — ½ cup = 15g

talk about plant-based proteins now I typically   Recommend between 20 and 25 grams of protein 
per meal and the idea is to have low amounts   Of sugary foods in higher protein if you're a 
vegan lentils 1 tablespoon 1.1 grams okay and I   Did leave off some other ones like spirulina and 
things like that but I'll actually put that in a   Chart you can download below tofu make sure you 
do it organic so it's non GMO 1/2 cup 10 grams   That's pretty good quinoa 1/2 cup 8 grams not 
too bad it's a bit higher in carbs though hemp   4 tablespoons 12 grams that's pretty good then 
we have sunflower seeds 1/2 a cup 6 grams that's   Pretty high pumpkin seeds 1/2 a cup 6 grams chia 
seed 1 ounce is 5 grams that's incredible nuts   Half a cup 14 grams that's a pretty high protein 
source almond butter 1 tablespoon is 3.4 it's not   Too bad either and then we have tempeh which is 
a half a cup that's 15 grams that's the highest   Protein that's a fermented soy product make sure
