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.

TREWESTERRE - I am a breast cancer survivor. My cancer was estrogen receptor positive, and my oncologist told me to avoid ALL soy foods, because the phytoestrogens in soy can feed that type of cancer. I'll listen to my doctor who is also a breast cancer researcher.

Contrary to popular opinion, no, soy is not bad for cancer patients or people with thyroid conditions (the latter are generally advised to wait four hours after taking their medication before eating soy) and GMO foods have not been shown to be dangerous to anyone's health.

You probably shouldn't overdo soy, but you shouldn't overdo anything you eat anyway. Eat a varied diet and don't worry about it so much.

Also, for quick preparation low-sodium legumes, get some red lentils. They cook as quick as rice does. Actually, any dried legumes can be hydrated in a rice cooker. It's super convenient, though it can take some time depending on the legume you're preparing (e.g. chickpeas will take a few hours, but it's faster than soaking or boiling them on a stove).

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.

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.
