Top Non-Animal Protein Sources

Protein…..minus the meat!

Build your muscles and live a better life. Many of us rely on animal protein: beef, chicken, pork, lamb, fish etc for our protein intake.

These are some non-animal protein options which you can incorporate into your meals without worrying about your calories and heart health too much.

Meat is notoriously high in calories, cholesterol, and saturated fat. Plant proteins are easier on your gut processes.

In terms of components, there is no difference between animal and plant proteins.They are both made up of amino acids, and they both contain the same 22 amino acids.

As long as you eat a variety of foods, you are bound to get all of the essential amino acids you need.

There is no need to get all amino acids during the same meal. So, you don’t have to worry about complex protein combinations to get all your amino acids. Just eat a variety of food throughout the day and you’ll be fine.
