Beans, peas, nuts, seeds, soy and lentils, are some of nature’s treasures. They are a powerhouse of good nutrition and a great source of natural protein. Plant proteins are often loaded with disease fighting phytonutrients, cholesterol-lowering fiber. They are also naturally low in cholesterol and sodium.
A diet focusing on plant-based protein sources can be beneficial for helping to prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease and mortality. They can also assist with day to day comfort – such as reduced stomach bloating and other intolerance side effects.
