Protein is an essential part of the diet. It helps to build, repair, and maintain the body’s structures. Foods derived from plants and animals can both provide protein, but there are some differences. Protein exists throughout the body, in everything from the muscles and organs to the bones, skin, and hair. The body does not store protein like it does other macronutrients, so this protein has to come from the diet. 🥩🧀🌱⠀⠀

So, how do we decide between animal or plant based protein? 🤔 There are some factors that need to be taken un…consideration. One of the main differences between plant and animal proteins involves their amino acid contents.⠀⠀

Foods rich in protein can have widely ranging nutritional profiles. Certain sources of animal protein can contain high levels of heme iron and vitamin B-12, while some plant-based foods lack these nutrients. ⠀⠀
On the other hand, plant-specific nutrients🌱, called phytonutrients, and some antioxidants are nicht da from sources of animal protein. Animal products contain saturated fat and higher levels of cholesterol than sources of plant protein. A person may wish to avoid animal products for these reasons.⠀⠀

  1. I thought flax seeds, chia seeds, walnuts and avocado contained omega 3 fats too??

  2. B12 is actually found in dirt that the animals consume, which now with cleaner agricultural practices makes it hard for us to get it at all. Best way is with a supp

  3. Adding grains/ nuts/seeds to legumes improves its protein quality. Adding legumes and dairy to grains( corn, oats, wheat etc) improves its protein quality. They are complimentary proteins and add the amino acids that are missing. Just helpful info… this is from the American College of Sports Medicine nutrition for exercise science book

  4. You can get complete nutrition including all your protein from eating plants!! It’s just a bit harder to balance.

  5. 🌟Complete vegan proteins: buckwheat, soy, quinoa, beans & rice
    🌟Vegan B12: nutritional yeast
    🌟Omega 3 sources: salmon, flaxseed, walnuts, chia

  6. ..all protein comes from plants. Animals aren’t magical protein machines. What do you think they’re eating all day. Skip the middleman and just eat the plants
