The health world is becoming increasingly aware of other protein sources that are just as beneficial and in fact, may have a better effect on the body. Well, we are not here to talk about which source is better just o create awareness and some insight into foods you never would have expected to be protein sources.

    Edamame Beans

    This versatile bean is a great source of protein and can be utilized in a variety of different ways. Edamame is also not high in calories and weighs in at 190 calories per cup with 17 grams of protein. The bean is also high in fiber, iron and vitamin K. These are always an easy snack and can be added to top off any dish.

    Whole Wheat Bread

    When we think bread, we instantly see it as a big no-no. As much as you think your eggs are packed with protein, which they are, 6 grams in fact. A slice of whole wheat bread actually has 5 grams of protein. Regardless balance is everything and a little carbohydrate never hurt anybody. Enjoy your eggs just as much as the bread and now you can do so guilt-free.

    Cottage Cheese

    This is a source of protein that comes highly recommended by many fitness and health professionals. In half a cup of cottage cheese you can find 14 grams of protein and at just 80 calories, a healthy and hearty snack or even specific staple. When eating cottage it should be complemented with low sodium ingredients as it contains quite a bit of sodium already, fruit or veggies always go well.


    Spinach is often overlooked and underestimated, however, a cup of cooked spinach boasts 5 grams of protein. Spinach can be added to omelets, salads and many other dishes. It may not taste fabulous on its own but adding some spices or lemon will improve that and make the leafy green more bearable to tolerate.

    The soybean or soya bean (Glycine max] is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean, which has numerous uses. Traditional unfermented food uses of soybeans include soy milk, from which tofu and tofu skin are made. Fermented soy foods include soy sauce,fermented bean paste, natto, and tempeh.

For example, soybean products, such as textured vegetable protein (TVP), are ingredients in many meat and dairy substitutes. Soy beans contain significant amounts of chytic acid, dietary minerals and B vitamins. Soy vegetable oil, used in food and industrial applications, is another product of processing the soybean crop.
