Lentils (Up to 9 g of Protein per ½ Cup) Good Protein


Sessions says lentils and other legumes (such as beans, peas, nuts, and seeds) offer a full protein package. “They’re rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, and [can] provide up to 9 g of protein per serving,” which is ½ cup cooked legumes, she says. They also contain antioxidant-rich polyphenols, which a study published in 2017 in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences says have anti-obesity, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and anti-diabetes properties.
Incorporate lentils as the protein in a veggie-packed soup (such as in Cookie and Kate’s Best Lentil Soup) or as the star of your next veggie burger (try Vegan Richa’s Lentil Walnut Burger recipe).
