GET FIT Plant Based Diet - List of Foods Higher in Protein
There are many different varieties of beans—black, white, pinto, heirloom, etc.—but one thing they all have in common is their high amounts of protein. Two cups of kidney beans, for example, contain about 26 grams (almost the same as a Big Mac, which has 25 grams). They truly are the magical fruit.
Also known as garbanzo beans, these legumes can be tossed into salads, fried and salted as a crispy snack, or pureed into a hummus. They contain 7.3 grams of protein in just half a cup and are also high in fiber and low in calories. You can make a meal with some whole-wheat flatbread, some veggies, and some homemade hummus. Just toss a can of chickpeas in the blender with some herbs and some tahini or walnut oil and you're good to go.
