Getting protein requirements from a meat light diet...

By making some choices it is very possible to meet your protein needs with the option of not eating meat.

It is a nice option to not have to rely on meat to meet all of our protein needs.

Here are a few options:

edamame : 1 cup = 17 grams of protein

tofu:  3 ounces=  9 grams of protein

kidney beans: 1 cup= 13 grams of protein

low fat, plain Greek yogart: 6 ounces=  18 grams of protein
