    non animal sources of protein

    I just feel like all the animal protein is a lot on my digestive system. What are some non animal sources of protein that are primal?

    Quinoa - though some people think this is a grain, it's a seed. 1/4 uncooked quinoa (do cook it though) has 6 grams of protein.

    Spinach - 3 oz of spinach (frozen) has 2 grams of protein. Mustard greens also.

    Brussel sprouts - 1 gram protein per oz of sprout

    Mushrooms - 3 oz of mushrooms has 2.6 grams protein

    Hope that's a start.

    do you consider dairy an animal protein? Cuz Greek yogurt, cheese, and raw milk are pretty awesome.

    Avocado?

    People seem to be getting excited about pea protein at the moment, too.

    Many veggies have a decent amount of protein for a plant. Green beans, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, root veggies, avocado, etc.

    Nutritional yeast tastes cheesy and it's loaded with protein: 8g per 80 calorie serving.

    Nuts and seeds. Tempeh is a fermented soy. Beans, properly soaked. Not primal, but oh well. There are worse foods. Nothing wrong with including them if they agree with you.

    Don't forget stinging nettle. It's supposed to have the highest protein content of any leafy edible.

    which ones? I get a discount with DoTerra, so I'd love to know which ones to help maintain my weight & blood sugar through pregnancy. I already take a cinnamon, grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger blend.

    Are you having trouble processing? It could be a stomach acid issue. You may need to do a HCl regiment.

    Do you have bad reactions to animal protein? Why do you think it's a lot on your digestive system?

    We evolved as meat eaters, unless you're having some sort of reaction or problem, I don't understand why it would be a lot on your digestive system.
