ABC Spotlights 13 Protein-Packed Plant-Based Foods

The news source addresses the common concern of how to get enough protein in a plant-based diet.

In an online article titled “Top 13 Vegan and Vegetarian Protein Sources,” ABC listed the myriad health benefits of protein-packed, plant-based superfoods like hemp, edamame, chickpeas, tempeh, beans, and nuts. “[Meat, eggs, and dairy] can also be high in saturated fat and cholesterol,” writes the news source. “What you may not know is that you don't need to eat meat or cheese to get enough protein.” ABC included healthful cooking tips from wellness experts like nutritionist and fitness blogger Elle Penner and Doctor Christine Gerbstat, author of the Doctor’s Detox Diet. Gerbstatdt recommended making a nutritious meal with whole-wheat flatbread, vegetables, and homemade hummus, while Penner suggested that one should buy nuts that are devoid of added sugar or hydrogenated oils for optimum health benefits.
