Protein Substitutions

Tofu: Silken for smoothies and puddings; medium or firm for cooking.Tempeh: Soybean-based meat substitute.
Edamame: Fresh (frozen) soybeans are a great high-protein snack or side.
Beans: Dried and home-cooked are cheap and the healthiest.
Chickpeas: In addition to beans, because they’re so versatile.
Seeds: Sesame, sunflower, poppy, pumpkin, chia … all high in protein and healthy fats.
Nuts: Great clean source of protein
Nut butter: Peanut, pumpkin, cashew, almond, hazelnut, pecan....the list is long. 
Tofurkey: If you can’t live without a “roast.”
Meat substitute made from wheat gluten; great texture, great protein.
Frozen vegetable burgers: Making your own is better, but these are convenient in a pinch. Impossible and Beyond have the closest flavor to beef.

Field Roast products: Grain-based faux meat products, not too processed and unusually tasty.
