Consider this: The most powerful animals on the planet—the bull, elephant, giraffe, rhino, and hippo—are all herbivores. These giant beasts all get their protein from plant sources, and mostly the green ones.
However, when most people think of vegetables, they don't think of protein. Vegetables not only cleanse our bodies, provide us with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber, but yes, you guessed it, they contain protein! All animal products, on the other hand, are devoid of fiber, and are acidifying to the body.
Our society has been mislead to believe that our only sources of protein are meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and cheese. Fortunately we now know there are other sources of protein provided by nature, such as beans, nuts, legumes and vegetables. Mother Nature conveniently provides us with all we need!
If you’re trying to eat fewer animal products, or simply add more protein into your diet, don’t overlook these five vegetables.
