One of the most commonly asked questions around eating a plant-based diet is … how do I get enough protein? And the short answer is … just eat a variety of foods! All plant foods contain some protein (that’s right — anything grown from the earth) and it’s pretty easy to get what you need if you eat a variety of foods, especially nuts and seeds, whole grains, beans and legumes.

Most people don’t require more than moderate amounts of protein, but if you’re looking to get additional protein in your plant-based meals, try adding nuts and seeds to your oatmeal or throwing some sauteed tofu or tempeh onto your salad or buddha bowl and opting for higher protein grains like quinoa versus brown rice.

This fun, summer-inspired 2,000-calorie menu is chock full of every food group — fiber-rich whole grains, heart healthy nuts and seeds, and antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetables!
