7 Great Non-Meat Protein Sources


Whether you’re a vegetarian (or vegan) or you’re simply concerned with the additives and hormones in the meat industry today, it’s good to take a break from consuming meat. Meatless Monday has become a pretty popular trend. Here are a few protein-packed ideas to join the bandwagon.

1. Beans

Take your pick of the many varieties available. Black beans, red beans, kidney beans, or navy beans are a great source of protein and fiber. Have them as a side or as soup for a meal.
