Expand Your Protein Horizons!
Enjoying a wide variety of protein sources can be a great way to expand your dietary horizons…without expanding your waistline. Vegetarian sources of protein in particular are often overlooked in diet plans for sources such as boneless, skinless chicken breasts. While lean chicken can be a great source of protein, so can an amazing array of beans and legumes. Nuts add even more variety, and they’re great sources of healthy fats. Protein helps us build muscle and is a great source of long-lasting energy. The next time you want to add some protein to your meal, try these sources:
- Beans: Black beans, navy beans, garbanzo beans and lentils
- Nuts: Walnuts, almonds, pistachios and pecans
- Soy Products: Tofu, soy milk, tempeh and of course, Glenny’s Soy Crisps for a flavor-packed punch of powerful soy protein, in a delicious, crunchy crisp.
