Vegetarian Protein Chart

Vegetarian Protein Chart

I’m not a vegetarian, but I definitely lean that way. I was a vegetarian for 12 years but started eating a little fish and small amounts of meat, on occasion. I saw this chart and thought it was good information to pass on about sources of protein for people who don’t eat meat.

From Vegetarian Times

Here is a list of some vegetarian protein sources and their protein amounts per serving size:

Greek yogurt, plain nonfat 6 oz. 17

Tempeh 1/2 cup 15.4
