Protein Myth #1: Animal Proteins Are The Best Sources Of Protein

Are animal proteins the best sources of protein compared to plant sources?

The truth is, we can get protein from and/or plant sources. Some examples of plant sources:

  • Beans
  • Lentils
  • Legumes
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Soy
  • Tofu and others

Although plant sources are typically lower than animal sources they have other benefits like being higher in fiber and other nutrients. It is recommended to eat a balanced diet with a variety of protein sources to get an adequate amount of all amino acids. 

What's your pick? Animal or Plant Protein?
