Dietitian's Answer

There are two main groups of proteins: animal proteins and plant proteins. Animal protein includes your poultry and your meats. It also includes eggs. They often have many of the essential amino acids that make up your proteins therefore it is more "complete".

Plant protein includes some vegetables like brussels sprouts, broccoli, and peas and other beans, nuts, and legumes like black beans and almonds. While you may need a couple of more sources of plant proteins to equal to the nutrients from chicken or eggs, plant proteins do not contain cholesterol and includes mainly healthy fats. Next time, try a tablespoon of almond butter or use pumpkin seeds in your Blast.

Be sure to read up on how much protein you really need:
