Where do you get your protein?

A:

Beans, lentils, whole grains, soy, nuts. People need about 50g of protein a day, which if you’re eating a healthy, varied diet isn’t hard to do. Most Americans eat twice as much protein as they’re supposed to, which causes its own health problems. You're probably already eating plant-based proteins without thinking about it. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, falafels, and veggie burritos with beans and rice are all complete proteins.
