I stick more with the legumes. Yes I was bloated I the beginning but over time your body adapts. At least it did for me.

I do think of meat when I hear of protein. But other items are just as significant.

So, the link that I clicked was titled "Plant based" but the article was focus to vegetarians, and included dairy. Dairy is not part of a plant-based lifestyle as it comes from animals.

Decent article, but it fails to mention that nuts, beans & veggies are not complete protein sources but must be combined with complementary grains, for example.

Thank you for this article. I have been living with a pre-diabetes diagnosis and have been looking for more ways to increase the protein in my diet. I need to do this without fatty meats and without causing my husband to revolt! There are several good options that he will love in this article.

Loved the article but I don't understand why protein content for nuts was listed for 1/4 Cup but serving size is 1 ounce, seems misleading to me.

I really enjoyed the article. I would have liked it if you would have included all the nutrient information. I have someone who is type 1 diabetic & is vegetarian. So it is very important for me to have the carb info included.

I'm still trying to figure out how to get a minimum of 60 g of protein a day without meat - and more if I am running that day. 3 g of protein in broccoli? I am not going to eat 20 cups of protein. I need to limit dairy and soy. And beans - really upset my colitis. So that leaves nuts? I can't afford the amount of calories it would take to eat that many nuts to get enough protein!

In order to print any thing, just press Control and then the key "p" for print. It works all the time.

LITTLEWIND53 -- In answer to your question (and it may have already been answered -- I didn't read all 119 comments), you can print articles using the blue MORE button. It has a print function.
