Vegetables With the Most Protein

Add These 10 Protein-Packed Veggies to Any Meal to Feel Fuller Longer

Did you know that on any given day, there are over 500 types of vegetables that you can find at the grocery store? So it makes sense if you get to the produce aisle and feel overwhelmed about which vegetables to grab. Selecting vegetables that contain the most protein is a great strategy for getting the most "bang-for-your-buck" vegetables. Not only does protein help build and repair muscles and tissues in the body, but it also gives you a huge boost of amino acids, necessary for bone strength. The United States Department of Agriculture recommends that the average person get anywhere from 46-56 grams of protein per day. Check out the most protein-dense vegetables that you need to grab the next time you're at the supermarket.
