Since I've become vegan I am always looking for new sources of protein. I never realized buckwheat had so much protein. Thanks for a great article. Report
Yes, I can definitely include these protein in my diet, and skip meat, chicken or fish on that meal. Thanks for the information. Will post this on my pinterest for reference. Report

It's a change of pace to eat these foods, but that's all, not any better or quicker for weight loss if you don't watch the portion size, as far as weight loss, don't be fooled. You will still lose weight, and GMO free or not, makes no difference in weight loss, either. Report
Plant based protein in my opinion is the best source of protein! You'll be amazed how better you will feel and how fast your weight comes off! You feel leaner, have more energy and overall you feel so much better and you can eat a lot more too! :) Report
Absolutely fantastic article - clear, informative, so thorough. Thank you for posting this. I will bookmark it so I can continue to refer to it. Report
I love meatless meals, great proteins...but; for someone that is watching their fat grams (15 grams per day) and sodium ( no more than 1500 mg per day) nuts are so high in fat and even rinsing beans I know the sodium is higher than I need. I've made beans from dry lots but you have to use that " P" word ( plan) , can elude me at times. I eat a ton of egg whites and fish and chicken. I add rinsed black bean and chickpeas to venison/turkey meatloaf. I'd love some recipes with low...LOW fat and sodium...PLEASE! Report

This was very interesting and useful. I was shocked to see that almonds contain more fat than Cashews. I was always told to stay clear of Cashews. I'm not a fan of giving meat up completely, I love a grilled steak every Sunday evening, but I do want to give it up for the rest of the week. Thanks ! Report
I know it's generally eaten as if it were a grain, but quinoa is technically a seed. Report

Really good information. I am going to have to work on this a bit, but may have to stick with keeping a small amount of meat in my diet. My challenge is that I try to limit grains insomuch as possible, and I avoid cheese, milk, etc. (I do like Greek yogurt!)

I do like egg whites, and this tends to be my "go to" aside from periodic salmon and "Ostrim" sticks that I keep in my car for quick protein snacks after workouts.

I have some work to do here...

Thanks for sharing. Report

Peanuts should be listed under legumes. They are not a true nut. Report

Great article except for the soy - soy is really bad for people with thyroid issues as well as Cancer patients . And the Veggies consumed need to be GMO free ! Report

Every vegetarian I know, (over 20 people) eat one hamburger every week, and they feel a lot better by doing that.................... Report
