Hello All,

If one does not eat soy, (a primary form of protein) what other avenues are there to get the necessary amounts of protein. A person can eat only so many beans per day/week.

Personally I can eat as many beans as the earth can grow but besides that you can eat nuts...seeds... and really anything. All vegetation is packed with the different amino acids but some don't have all of them...if you eat a healthy mix of fruits and veggies you'd be fine...this is why you can thrive on a fruitarian diet or raw diet(which normally lacks in a mass of beans but raw foodists tend to eat a fair amount of seeds and nuts)

Hemp is an excellent source of protein. I like to make hemp protein smoothies for breakfast and/or for a post-workout snack.

Quinoa is high in protein.

Seitan (wheat meat) is very high in protein as well.

Sprouts have a good protein make up.

But most people in the US overestimate the amount of protein one needs. If you eat a balanced, varied diet, you shouldn't have to worry to much.

I think I had a soy allergy a while ago, but I've been eating little bits of it, trying not to go overboard. I try not to take in too much because there seems to be another stereotype that if you don't eat soy, you can't possibly meet your protein requirements, which I look to break.
