    Additional Protein Sources

    Hi all, I am currently living abroad for the next two years and don’t have access to meat or cheese products often, does anyone have any suggestions on what can give the most protein? I want to eat healthy and work out at the same time but need to figure out this problem.

    Eggs, beans, tofu (subset of beans), tempeh (subset of beans), nuts & nut butters, fish and shellfish.
    Abroad where might help with a more specific list of protein sources.

    Also, how broad are your food preferences? I file insects under protein sources, but I'm unusually broad minded in that regard (part Cajun from mom's side of the family) and can't suggest it for everyone.

      Legumes like lentils and chickpeas (all beans are legumes but not all legumes are beans, so I figured I would make it explicit ). This is probably my absolute favorite source of protein.

        Hi Piferb and welcome to the Hive!

        Some of the best plant-based protein sources:

        Black beans
        White beans
        Kidney beans
        Split peas
        Peas
        Lentils
        Chickpeas
        Quinoa
        Buckwheat
        Amaranth
        Millet
        Tofu (processed soy bean)
        Tempeh (fermented soy bean)
        Seitan (made from wheat gluten)
        TVP - textured vegetable protein made with protein powder, looks like mince


        Some veggies are also high in protein (in relation to Calories):
        Broccoli
        Cauliflower
        Green beans
        Spinach
        Brussels sprouts
        Asparagus

        Mushrooms are also high in protein in relation to Calories

        I hope this helps

        P.S. I exclusively rely on plan-based protein myself.
