I've put together a list of 10 vegetarian and vegan protein sources most of which you may have not known about, thought about, or even recognized as protein sources. So no this isn't gonna be your typical beans and tofu vegetarian kind of video. These are new sources. As a vegetarian and as a vegan as long as you vary your protein sources, and have the right macronutrient balance, there's no reason why you can't experience amazing results, gain muscle, burn fat, and look your best. Let's go over some of these new protein sources that are plant based. My favorite is black bean and mung bean pasta. Quinoa and chickpea pasta used to be the go-to pasta for extra protein but the newer black bean and mung bean pastas have way better macro ratios. In one serving of black bean pasta at you're getting a whopping 25 grams of protein and only 17 grams of carbs compare that to your regular wheat based pasta and you'll see a completely different label. It's going to have over 40 grams of carbs and only roughly eight grams of protein. The best part is that black bean pasta doesn't really taste like Black beans and if you add a little bit of sauce it tastes great. There's also another carb that's made up of live grains that packs a surprisingly high amount of protein. I'm talking about Ezekiel bread. It's made up of wheat barley beans lentils Millet and spelt which ultimately creates a complete source of protein full of all the essential amino acids. In one Ezekiel bun there is 9 grams of protein and 34 grams of carbs. Even though this protein to carb ratio is not as good as the black bean pasta it's still really good. Black beans which are considered a staple vegetarian protein source will have only a slightly better protein to carb ratio. Next is seitan and I'm surprised that a lot of vegetarians have never heard of this awesome protein source. It comes from gluten so it's not for the gluten intolerant but it's one of the best plant-based sources of protein for everyone else. It's not a complete source of protein but something simple like soy sauce can make it a complete source of protein. Satan has 21 grams of protein per serving and usually under 5 grams of carbs. When you cook it right it comes out with a chewy texture and with the right sauce it might become one of your favorite sources of protein. For the fourth plant-based source of protein we got nutritional yeast. Before you make up your mind that you don't want to eat any kind of yeast I want you to know that I've tried this and it's actually really good. On top of that in just two tablespoons you're getting seven grams of protein and only 6 grams carbs. Again this is another truly awesome protein to carb ratio for a vegan approved complete source of protein packed with all the essential amino acids you need. You can use it in a lot of recipes including healthy mac and cheese recipes mashed cauliflower recipes salads and much much more. What do we got next??????? that's right peanut butter but not just any kind of peanut butter. Because regular peanut butter does come with a lot of fat and some carbs. We're gonna want to go with a dehydrated form of peanut butter like pb2. With pb2 youll see right on the front of the bottle they claim that theres 85% less fat then regular peanut butter. In two tablespoons You'll be getting 5 grams of protein 5 grams of carbs and only one and a half grams of fat. Two tablespoons of regular peanut butter has 16 grams of fat. Another protein source you may have never heard of and could be a great snack for vegans and vegetarians alike is vegan jerky. The company that makes it has a bunch of different flavors to choose from and the smoke black pepper version has 7 grams of protein 4 grams of carbs and three and a half gram of fat. This is again a great macronutrient ratio for a vegan snack. You can order them right from Amazon if you don't have a store that sells it near you. Up next is tempeh and tofu and the reason why I group these together is because they both come from soy. Also one of the best ways to make both of these taste good is by sauteing them with seasoning and sauce.
