(easygoing digital music) – “I’m a vegetarian. “Please help me find protein sources.” I’ve got you, protein can be hiding in so many things, from
vegetables, to beans, to pasta, to your favorite whole grains. “Wait, did you just say pasta?” Yes, I did, chickpea pasta
has one of the highest protein contents out of
all the types of pastas right now on the market,
and actually tastes amazing. Eating chickpea pasta is a super easy way to deliver some high quality
amino acids to the bod, woo-woo, so yes,
chickpeas and other beans, like black beans, navy beans, pinto beans, all contain protein. Plus, to save time and money,
get the canned versions of these beans, just rinse and pat dry. It’s a gamechanger. Buh-bye, boring greens, say hello to pantry staples, like quinoa, buckwheat, oats, sorghum, and farro. All of those are overflowing with protein. For a crunchy protein topper, add some nuts and seeds to your meals, like almonds and pumpkin seeds
for another dose of protein. And finally, protein is lurking in those veggies of
yours, like peas, edamame, and even a bit in spinach and kale. A quick reminder, add some Vitamin C to those plant-based proteins, just a squeeze of lemon,
or some blistered peppers, or some charred broccoli to help your body break
down and absorb the iron, and trust me, your body will
say “yum” and “thank you” at the same time, “yum-thank-you”. Hey, subscribe to Well and Good’s YouTube channel, all right? (easygoing digital music)
