Watching ads about egg consumption made everyone think that eggs are the only way for building your body. It’s true…to a certain amount. Eggs are a major key factor that almost every bodybuilder feels proud of eating more than anyone else. If you tell any bodybuilder around the world that you can get more proteins with vegetarian food than eggs, he will most probably scoff at you. He will have tears rolling off his eyes due to laughing really hard at your joke. But, after reading this article, you will learn of a few vegetarian foods that can bring the joke on them! Let us take a look at the vegan food that tastes good and has more protein than egg.
Vegan Food That Tastes Good
It’s true. There are vegetarian foods that are a better source of protein than an egg. There can be multiple reasons why you would like to opt for vegetarian foods. Maybe you dislike the smell of an egg or you are a vegetarian or maybe you want to prove an egg freak wrong about building a body with vegetarian food. Whatever your reason, today you will finally be able to get rid of the egg myth from your head. So without further ado, lets begin.
Vegan Food Items With More Proteins
Yes, that Arabic dip that you get in any Middle Eastern restaurant. It’s made up of beans, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. It’s as healthy as it gets. A typical egg will provide you with nearly 6g of protein. A half cup of hummus provides your body with almost 10 g of protein which is almost twice more than an egg, and is a lot tastier as well!
Black beans or ‘kala ghevda’ as we know it is the black coloured beans which are a high source of antioxidants and fibre. A cup of black peas provide nearly 15g of protein.
Made up of peanut (obviously) is another source of protein and provides you with an alternative to egg. Two tablespoons give 8g of protein, still a lot more than an egg.
More Vegan Food Items
My favourite. Made of paneer or cheese, a delicious alternative to eggs. It gives you 10g of protein in a cup.
‘Chana’ as we know them are also a great source of protein and give 15g of protein per cup. Tastes a lot better than eggs any time of the day.
‘Kaddu’ even though it means nothing at times, has a lot more protein than an egg. 30g of serving gives you 9g of protein. Whoa, even ‘kaddu’ is a richer source of protein than eggs. Bet you didn’t know that.
So, there you have it. A list of few vegetarian foods which will give you more protein than an egg. The list goes on to even further. But I will stop here to let you digest this new information. Now you know, eggs are not the only great source of protein. Vegetables defeat eggs anytime of the day.
