I see many articles and information on non-meat protein sources and they rarely (almost never) include hemp seeds. Hemp seeds (otherwise known as hemp hearts) are one of the best complete sources of plant based protein and, are for some reason, being completely ignored. They taste better than flax or chia in my opinion and are very high in protein.

Do you eat seafood? If so, you've got several good choices ...

Any way you like. :)

There's protein powder (hello smoothies), or those "complete meal" drinks. You can eat eggs, or tofu, or beans in general. Nuts also have a lot of protein.

How do I get protein? I don't like meat that much.
