High-Protein Plant-Based Diet For Beginners: Quick and Easy Recipes For Everyday Meals
By Maya A. Howard with Ariel Warren
I received a free copy of High-Protein Plant-Based Diet For Beginners from the publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
An essential guide to optimal whole-food, plant-based protein sources, prep and cooking tips, and a 4-week meal plan for a manageable transition.
Embarking on their journey, people who are beginners to plant-based eating often find themselves asking, But where will I get my protein from now? The simple answer is: from plants! Plants are optimal protein sources, and yes, it is entirely possible to get your daily protein requirements exclusively from plants.
In High-Protein Plant-Based Diet for Beginners, wellness leader and coach Maya A. Howard offers an invaluable guide that breaks down which plants have the highest protein content, shows you how to combine ingredients for complete protein meals, and features delicious everyday recipes that use a variety of high-protein whole-food plants, like vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and even fruit!
High-Protein Plant-Based Diet for Beginners features:
– A beginner’s guide to plant protein, including a handy chart showing the highest-protein plant foods and a short tutorial on how to pair ingredients for a complete protein meal.
– Quick and easy recipes featuring high-protein options for every meal of the day (even snacks and desserts!), like Banana Oatmeal Bake, Sweet Potato Chia Pancakes, Chickpea Tortilla Soup, Kale Pesto Zucchini Linguini, Pineapple Fried Rice, Watermelon Poke Bowl, and Black Bean Fudge Brownies.
– An easy-to-follow 4-week meal plan, complete with helpful grocery lists and step-by-step prepping instructions that takes the guesswork out of your first four weeks.
Summary from Goodreads.
I am always looking for more recipes and ideas for what to create in the kitchen. High-Protein Plant-Based Diet provides you with not only a plethora of recipes to try out, but a very handy meal plan to guides you how to make your food work for you.
Plenty of the recipes include a single serve as a base, which makes things very easy to adapt compared to having to go from a 4 person size dish downwards. 6 seperate chapters are devoted to the different meals: Breakfast, Smoothies & Drinks, Soups & Stews, Main Meals, Snacks & Desserts, and Everyday Staples: Sauces, Spreads & Salad Dressings. Each dish includes nutritional information such as calories, total fat, carbohydrates and protein (almost like what you would when looking at food packages in the supermarket). While this information is very useful, I could see how it could very easily negatively influence some individuals to worry more about the numbers instead of the actual overall benefit of the meal.
Since this is a plant-based diet, most people will be put off by this. Actually, this book shows that you are able to get good tasting food with it being nutritious. Even if you are an avid meat-eater, I am sure that there will be recipes in here that you will enjoy.
If you are looking for more recipes to try then this is defiantly worth looking at.
