Did you know?
When it comes to protein, many vegetables can deliver a healthy dose?
The Canadian food guide was revised to include more plant foods on our plates, both for our health and for the environment.
Here are several star vegetable choices to add to our plates:
- *Lentils and beans
- Brussels sprouts
- Green peas
- Beet greens
- Baked potatoes
Some choices like lentils and edamame offer up to 18 g of protein per cup!
Health tip: Eat plant sources of protein with whole grains to complete your protein needs. An example would be lentils with brown rice or broccoli with quinoa.
