11 Not-So-Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick

11 Not-So-Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick

You’re healthy, you eat well and exercise, but it’s still hard to escape the “fall flu.” Yet we all have one or two coworkers or friends who never seem to catch the bug (I’m looking at you Cassie!).

It’s ok to admit that we might be a bit jealous of them. And confused… I mean how do they do it?

Maybe you are one of these lucky people. Do you know why?

Is it superhuman abilities, or crazy amazing genetics?

Here’s the big surprise: there is no big surprise.

There are no secrets; most of it is just common sense. It’s the follow-through that’s the hard part. But if you can do most of these practices consistently, you might find yourself thinking, “when was the last time I got sick?”

Add in some superfoods to boost your immunity and you’ll be all set! 

1. They wash their hands, often. 

This one may seem like a no brainer, but those that don’t get sick wash their hands more than the average bear.

And what is average? Well a recent survey showed that about 70% of people do not wash their hands with soap and warm water…I’m going to let that sink in for a moment.1

Rinsing those beautiful hands is the single most effective way of decreasing your chances of catching something nasty!2

To reduce your chances of catching a bug lather up before you eat, after coming into contact with someone who’s feeling under the weather, and of course after you use the restroom.


 2. They can find Zen amongst the chaos.

Stress activates the immune system, which is beneficial in the short term but chronic stress can cause immune system burnout, leading to getting sick.3

Those superhumans who rarely get the sniffles tend to find ways to manage their stress.

Pressed for time? Give yourself a 5 minute mini break every hour. Get up from your desk and take a walk out side, stretch, or listen to your favorite song. Doing so can give you the mental break you need to feel relaxed and refreshed.


3. They hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. 

60% of the body is made up of water and it is essential for everything from some enzyme reactions to nutrient absorption and utilization.

Every moment we are breathing in a plethora of things – dust, pollen, dander, air pollutants, perfumes, and germs.

Our body’s way of keeping out all of the icky stuff? Mucus, which happens to be mostly, you guessed it, made up of water.

Staying hydrated allows the body to constantly flush out any potential irritants before they turn into something more serious.


4. Their sleep game is strong. 

Getting enough shut-eye actually enhances the immune systems defense against microorganisms, making a well rested person less likely to get sick then their sleep deprived counterpart.4

Remember, 8 hours of sleep is the average and not the rule. It’s ok if you feel awesome after 6 hours or even 10. Follow a sleep pattern that feels right for you!


5. Plants are their friends.

Consuming the rainbow is one of the best ways to decreases your chances of catching that pesky cold that’s been going around.

And we’re not taking about the Skittles rainbow…

Fruits as well as vegetables have been shown to reduce inflammation and provide a variety of macro- and micro-nutrients essential for immune function.5

Load up on an assortment of your favorite produce each day to rev up your immune system.

Or try Superfood Smoothie Mix for a convenient blend of 13 superfoods.


6. Their glass is always half-full.           

Staying positive and optimistic can be beneficial in many area of life.

Not only has it been associated with improved outcomes of certain conditions but it has also been shown to boost the immune system too!6

Pick a different positive mantra to live by each week. It can be as simple as, “My body is healthy, strong, and beautiful.”

Write it on a sticky note and place it somewhere you know you will see it, like your bathroom mirror or computer at work, and take a moment each day to say those words in your head.


7. They eat foods high in vitamin C.

Certain immune cells, called t-cells and phagocytes, require vitamin C to function.7

People who consume foods high in vitamin C daily improve their chances of staying healthy.

What about a vitamin supplement? Probably not.

Not only do they tend to not be pricey, but they are usually in the form of ascorbic acid derived from GMO corn!

Instead opt for foods naturally high in vitamin C such as oranges, bell peppers, and even our powdered camu camu berry that has better bioavailability and tastes great!


8. They break a sweat.           

Hitting the gym for a sweat sesh will do more than make you look good.

It’s actually been linked to reduced incidents of infections.8

The key here is consistency. Get up and get moving for at least 30 minutes per day.

Not a fan of the gym? That’s ok! Try going for a walk around your neighborhood or meeting up with a couple of friends after work to play tennis or hit up a local yoga class.


9. They follow Marvin Gay’s advice and Get It On. 

Yes you read that right!

Individuals who have sex at least once or twice per week have higher levels of immune antibodies than those who don’t.9


10. Their Social Network extends beyond Facebook.           

Need another excuse to spend some much needed quality time with your bestie?

Those with a strong social network are able to fight off colds and the flu better than those with out.10

Some scientists believe this is due to the fact that when we hang out with our friends our bodies produce lower levels of the stress hormones catecholamine and glucocorticoids, which decreases the chances of getting sick.


11. They DO get sick, but they take care of themselves. 

Everyone gets sick, even those who seem to “never get sick.” So this one is not a tip to prevent you from getting ill but rather one for what to do when you actually start to feel under the weather.


Plain and simple I know, but resting when you actually are sick can shorten the duration of your cold. Don’t try to work through it, you don’t have to “tough it out,” just take it easy and let your body do its thing.

The Superfood Survival Guide for Cold & Flu Season

The Superfood Survival Guide for Cold & Flu Season

Fall is upon us and that means changing weather (yes the weather still changes here in San Diego 😉 just less than everywhere else), cool crisp nights, autumn leaves, pumpkin spice everything, and unfortunately germs. Lots of them.

Especially if you’ve got kiddos going to the germ factory every day, bringing home all their classmates coughs, sniffles, and runny noses.

Each year millions of people catch those pesky cold and flu viruses at least once, with many of us experiencing the unpleasantness of these little germs more often.1

I’ve compiled a list of  my favorite natural solutions that help combat sniffles, coughs, colds, and the flu!


10 Natural Solutions for Cold & Flu Defense

Raw Honey – Better than cough syrup

This delicious superfood is no ordinary sweetener. Chalked full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants essential for optimal immune function this tasty treat is a must have in your cold fighting tool kit.

One study found that children who were given a dose of honey before going to bed felt more relief from their cough compared with the over the counter drugs dextromethorphan (DM) and diphenhydramine (DPH).2

Honey also promotes healthy gut bacteria, those little guys that play a pivotal role in helping your immune system function properly.3,4

Try WeeBee Raw Honey



Camu CamuOranges got nothin’ on this Vitamin C

A small tropical berry that is one of the highest sources of vitamin C in the world, with the whole fruit having around 30 times more than an orange!

Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant known to aid immune cells in the fight against viruses and bacteria. Several studies showed that consuming 1g of vitamin C per day shortened the duration of colds in both children and adults.5

Mix 1-2 tsp in your favorite juice or smoothie when you’re starting to feel under the weather.

Try Organic Camu Camu



SilverOld School is New School

An old tried but true go-to of many naturopathic doctors, silver has been used for centuries in aiding the ill.

Our Super Nano Colloidal Silver is the most potent, safest, easiest to absorb from of silver in the market. You can add it to any drink, soup, or smoothie you want without diluting its potency.

One recent study suggests that silver might have an inhibitory effect on a variety of viruses.6

Try Super Nano Colloidal Silver



Chia Seeds/ Sacha Inchi OilOmegas put inflammation in its place

When we get anything from the sniffles to a full on lung infection our body becomes inflamed.

While the inflammation process is healthy and normal, all too often when we get sick our bodies go a little overboard.

One of natures best defense mechanisms against unwanted inflammation? Omega-3 fatty acids!

Both Chia seeds and sacha inchi oil are wonderful sources of this mighty fat, which when taken regularly helps to promote a healthy inflammation response by the body helping fight back against colds and the flu.7

Try Organic Chia Seeds

Try Organic Sacha Inchi Oil



MangosteenXanthone fights for you

Native to the South Pacific, this tropical fruit is the most potent source of xanthone, a powerful phytochemical that has been shown to enhance the activity of immune cells in the human body.8

While the mangosteen fruit is delicious and sweet, the nutrient dense rind produces a tart, tangy flavor.

Adding a teaspoon to your favorite tropical smoothie or atop a creamy non-dairy yogurt can help jump start your immune system!

Try Organic Mangosteen



Sun Is Shining SupergreensMajor greens reporting for duty

A dynamic whole food formula made up of 19 raw, organic, wild-crafted green superfoods including algae, sea vegetables, and potent herbs.

The dark leafy greens in this formula actually have been found to allow one of the bodies major immune cells, called intra-epithelial lymphocytes (IELs), to function properly.9

Another bonus, it contains a natural probiotic and enzyme complex that can be beneficial for individuals dealing with digestive issues as a result of the flu.

Try Organic Supergreens



Oceans Alive 2.0 Marine PhytoplanktonStrength from the sea

The main hero in this bottle is actually a molecule that has lived on this planet for almost 3 billion years—phytoplankton.

SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD) is the reason this microalgae packs a powerful immune boosting punch. SOD is an antioxidant enzyme that is part of the body’s first line of defense against illness.10

Remember a little goes a long way. Just add one to two drops in your favorite beverage and reap the benefits of this wonderful alga.

Try Oceans Alive 2.0 Marine Phytoplankton



Spirulina CrunchiesEnhance immunity with algae

An ancient superfood coveted by the Aztecs, spirulina is a microscopic freshwater vegetable that gets its name from its tiny spiral shape.

This green plant is loaded with compounds called carotenoids that enhance immune function.11, 12

Try Spirulina Crunchies



Bee PollenLittle nuggets of nutrients

We have our cute and friendly bees to thank for this one!

Bee pollen is an excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin A and the mineral zinc both of which strengthen the immune response.13

These fluffy granules are best served sprinkled on oatmeal or smoothie bowls.

Try Spanish Bee Pollen

Black Bean Quinoa Burger


Nothing beats a (veggie) burger with all the fixins on a hot summer day. The problem is that store bought ones tend to have additives and preservatives and a lot of the homemade ones seem to fall apart. Finally, a healthy, whole food veggie burger that tastes amazing and actually holds its form. Loaded with quinoa, beans, almonds, veggies, herbs and spices, it’s delicious and good for you. Watch out; you might come back for seconds!

Makes 10-11 patties

  • 1 cup cremini mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup yellow bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup green onion, finely diced

When the quinoa is done, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix beans, garlic, onion, pepper, mushrooms, lemon juice and mustard into the cooked quinoa. Then mix in flour, ground almonds, and flax meal.

Lastly mix in the smoked paprika and salt to taste. Scoop  and form into patties on a pan lightly coated with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, remove and flip the burgers. Return to oven and bake for 10 more minutes. Add to buns of choice with your favorite burger fixins. Enjoy!

Ten Reasons You Should Drink Lemon Water Every Morning



Ten Reasons You Should Drink Lemon Water Every Morning


There’s no better time than first thing in the morning to flush out your body and boost your energy. Think about it: After sleeping for eight hours (hopefully), your stomach is empty and your cells are dehydrated. Lemon juice charges a plain glass of water with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and trace elements which are better absorbed before you eat breakfast.

This one change to your routine can lead to increased immunity, improved digestion, weight loss, radiant skin and more.


1. Aid Digestion

Of course hydration is crucial for proper digestion. But adding lemon to your water goes a step further because the atomic structure of lemon juice is actually similar to digestive juices. This stimulates your liver into producing bile, which breaks down food and aids in digestion.


2. Lose Weight

Naturally if you’re digesting your food better, it will move through your system more efficiently instead of getting stuck in your system, so to speak. But lemons also contain a polysaccharide known as pectin, which is an appetite suppressant that makes you feel fuller longer.


3. Boost Vitamin C

Lemon juice is packed with vitamin C, which is vital for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body, from wound healing to maintenance of bones and teeth. Since you can’t make it on your own, it must be obtained through food.


4. Support Immunity

Vitamin C is also an antioxidant which fights free radicals that damage cells and tissues. This helps the immune system fight off illness. Additionally, vitamin C stimulates the production of white blood cells which are essential for the functioning of your immune system.


5. Detox

Vitamin C strikes again. Its antiseptic properties stimulate the liver in removing toxins. As mentioned earlier, lemon juice signals the liver to produce more bile and digest more efficiently – this will also have a cleansing effect. Lastly, lemon is a mild diuretic and will help flush toxins out through the urinary tract.


6. Alkalize

Research has proven that disease cannot survive in alkaline environments. You may have heard that citrus is acidic, but this is only partly true. Once it leaves your mouth and enters the digestive system, it can actually raise the pH of your body.


7. Reduce Inflammation

Acidity can cause inflammation and inflammation leads to disease. The alkalizing effect of lemon can therefore help to reduce inflammation. And once again, the antioxidative power of vitamin C to fight free radicals that damage cells and tissue also leads to fewer signals for inflammation.


8. Energize

Instead of coffee in the morning, you may find that the invigorating scent and taste of lemon will jumpstart your day, not to mention the nutritional boost.


9. Enhance Mood

Lemons contain potassium, the deficiency of which has been linked to anxiety and depression. Even just the scent has been used in aromatherapy to lift mood.


10. Rejuvenate Skin

Lemon water can help clear skin because vitamin C is known to help the body produce collagen. It also helps to fight free radicals and flush out toxins that ruin skin.


OK…Now How to Do It?

It’s easy and inexpensive to make this one change in your morning routine! Just squeeze half a lemon in 16 ounces of warm or room temp water. Not hot water because you don’t want to kill the nutrients, and not cold water because it may be a shock to your system. Drink 15-30 minutes before you eat breakfast for optimal absorption and peak health!


Now give it a BOOST!

Super-boost your lemon water with a teaspoon of Sun is Shining Supergreens for a really incredible morning routine. Supergreens contains 19 green superfoods, and it adds 158% vitamin B12, 123% vitamin A, iron, B2, calcium and loads of other nutrients to your morning lemon water.

The Power of Fermentation: What Sauerkraut Can Do for You

The Power of Fermentation: What Sauerkraut Can Do for You


Cabbage to the Next Level

Not many people would argue that cabbage is a healthful food. It’s loaded with minerals like potassium which helps maintain normal blood pressure, as well as calcium and magnesium which support bone health.

Cabbage also contains the vital antioxidant vitamin C which is known to contribute to healthy immunity. Sailors actually took sauerkraut, or fermented cabbage, on long voyages to counteract scurvy.1 Sure, this might be due to its favorable shelf stability, or perhaps it’s because when cabbage is fermented, the health benefits increase exponentially.

This is due to the power of probiotics. This friendly gut flora affects your health in more ways than you may realize.


Need help digesting your meals? Fermented foods like sauerkraut have been found to deliver probiotics to the gastrointestinal system.1 This has been reported to lead to better digestion and less constipation.1


Did you know that your intestines contain more immune cells than the entire rest of your body?2 In other words, gut health is essential for your body to fight disease. Researchers are currently investigating how dysfunctional gut health may even lead to common killers in America such as heart disease and diabetes.2


With the billions of dollars being poured into cancer research as a whole, focusing on prevention couldn’t be any simpler than eating a bit of sauerkraut every day. Recent research has shown that sauerkraut grown in low sodium conditions has “highly beneficial antioxidant and anticarcinogenic compounds.”3

Make Your Own

Kraut in a can has been cooked and processed to the point that there is likely not a single bit of friendly flora surviving inside. Luckily it’s easy on you and your wallet to make homemade sauerkraut.

If you have cabbage, salt, water, a jar to put it in, and some patience to allow the fermentation process to kick in, then you can make your own sauerkraut. Here’s a simple recipe!


Other ways to add Probiotics & Enzymes to your diet

A Single Change to Drastically Improve Your Health in 10 Days



A Single Change to Drastically Improve Your Health in 10 Days


What if there was one thing you could do to lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure, improve liver function and reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes – in just 10 days?

And you could still eat potato chips and pizza?

All you’d have to do it cut out added sugar. Not fruit, just the added sugar in processed foods.


A Groundbreaking Study Revealed..

A team of researchers from the University of California, San Francisco recently discovered that when 43 obese children were given a 10-day diet that was completely free of added sugar, their health drastically improved.1 Blood pressure and LDL cholesterol dropped. Fasting blood glucose and insulin levels decreased. Liver function tests improved.

The results were striking and immediate in indicating that simply cutting sugar can reverse metabolic disease in children.

Kids still ate many of the fun foods they’re used to and the same caloric intake – just no sweetened cereals, yogurts and pastries. Nothing sweet except fruit.

Virtually every aspect of metabolic health improved without a change in weight.

“This study demonstrates that ‘a calorie is not a calorie,’ said lead author Robert Lustig, MD, MSL, pediatric endocrinologist at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco. “Where those calories come from determines where in the body they go. Sugar calories are the worst, because they turn to fat in the liver, driving insulin resistance, and driving risk for diabetes, heart, and liver disease. This has enormous implications for the food industry, chronic disease, and health care costs.”



About Those Low-Calorie, Low-Fat Foods…

The food industry spends big money to convince you that these “diet” foods are a healthy choice. The problem? The added sugar is literally poison in your system.

Forget about counting calories and start reading ingredients. Focus on whole foods without the added sugar.

There’s a reason that the Heart and Stroke Foundation recommends that no more than 10% of the calories we consume in an average 2,000 calorie a day diet come from added sugars. That’s approximately 12 grams of sugar and one can of soda is about 85% of that. If you then consider all the fruit juices, cereals, pastries and condiments, you see how easy it is to go well beyond the recommended maximum.



It’s an Addiction

The form of sugar typically found in processed foods is high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). This stuff has been getting a bad rap in recent years, leading the food industry to unsuccessfully campaign to rename it “corn sugar.” Now they’re calling an even sweeter version of it “fructose” in an attempt to steer clear of the notorious original name.

They’re running from the science which revealed that HFCS can cause chemical, behavioral and neurobiological reactions similar to those produced by addictive drugs such as cocaine.2

The study’s lead author, Dr. Francesco Leri, concluded that “addiction to unhealthy foods could help explain the global obesity epidemic.”


How to Quit

It’s simply a matter of doing something similar to what those 43 kids in the study did. Cut out added sugar.


Easier said than done, we know. Start by:

 1. Choosing more whole foods and less processed stuff.

 2. Add a bit less sugar to your coffee each day.

 3. Eat more fruit.

 4. Cut out one thing a week and start with soda!

5. Try a natural, lower glycemic sugar like Coconut Palm Sugar! It is made by evaporating coconut sap from the tropical palm flowers. Farmers gently cut the buds and collect the sweet nectar using traditional methods, then the syrup is kettle-warmed, dehydrated, and ground into crystals to make a delicious sweetener. Coconut palm sugar has a full, unique, delightful caramel taste and dissolves easily in liquids. 


Remember that over time, your palate can and will change. Someday the foods and drinks you love now may actually reveal themselves to be what they truly are: sickeningly sweet.

New Research: Why Take Dangerous Statin Drugs When You Can Eat Four Of These Nuts, Once a Month Instead?



New Research: Why Take Dangerous Statin Drugs When You Can Eat Four Of These Nuts, Once a Month Instead?


One of the craziest studies I read all year involved feeding people a single serving of Brazil nuts to see what it would do to the cholesterol levels of healthy volunteers. They gave ten men and women a single meal containing zero, one, four, or eight Brazil nuts, and found that the ingestion of just that single serving almost immediately improved cholesterol levels. LDL, so-called “bad” cholesterol levels in the blood, was significantly lower starting just nine hours after the ingestion of nuts, and by no insignificant amount, nearly 20 points within a day. Even drugs don’t work that fast. It takes statins around four days to have a significant effect.

But that’s not even the crazy part.

The researchers went back and measured their cholesterol five days later, and then 30 days later. Now, keep in mind they weren’t eating Brazil nuts this whole time. They just had that single serving of Brazil nuts a month before and their cholesterol was still down 30 days later. It went down and stayed down, after eating just four nuts… That’s nuts!

And no, the study was not funded by the Brazil nut industry.

shop-now-product-brazil-nutsInterestingly, four nuts actually seemed to work faster than the eight nuts to lower bad cholesterol and boost good cholesterol. These results suggest that eating just four nuts might be enough to improve the levels of LDL and HDL for up to 30 days, and maybe longer—they didn’t test past 30.

Now normally, when a study comes out in the medical literature showing some too-good-to-be-true result like this, you want to wait to see the results replicated before you change your clinical practice, before you recommend something to your patients, particularly when the study is done on only ten people, and especially when the findings are literally just too incredible to be believed. But when the intervention is cheap, easy, harmless, and healthy—eating four Brazil nuts a month—then, in my opinion, the burden of proof is kind of reversed. I think the reasonable default position is to do it until proven otherwise.

They concluded a single serving was sufficient “without producing liver and kidney toxicity.” What they’re referring to is the high selenium content of Brazil nuts—so high that four eaten every day may actually bump us up against the tolerable daily limit for selenium, but not something we have to worry about if we’re just eating four once a month.

I’d be curious to hear if anyone experiences similar results. Even if the study was just a fluke, Nuts May Help Prevent Death by improving the function of our arteries (Walnuts and Artery Function) and fighting cancer (Which Nut Fights Cancer?) and inflammation (Fighting Inflammation in a Nut Shell).

Even eating nuts every day does not appear to result in expected weight gain (Nuts and Obesity: The Weight of Evidence), so enjoy!

5 Soy-Free Vegan Foods That Have More Protein Than Beef



5 Vegan foods high in protein That Have More Protein Than Beef


Vegan foods high in protein. Protein gets a lot of attention, especially in a plant-based diet where the issue of complete and incomplete protein comes into play, along with protein per amount of weight, which is something else to consider. For instance, we don’t need to combine foods as we once thought to form a complete protein (such as beans and rice). That protein myth died years ago, thankfully when we found out our bodies are capable of using all sources of amino acids to form complete proteins from vegan foods high in protein.

Not Just Grams…What to Consider When Measuring Protein, vegan foods high in protein!

It’s also important to consider that amounts in grams aren’t the only thing that matters when measuring protein in a food. You should also consider how much percentage of total calories protein makes up in a food. For instance, beef and animal foods are high in calories and though they contain a good size amount of protein, per amount of calories, beef and animal proteins (even fish) are higher in cholesterol-forming saturated animal fats, where most of their calories come from. Vegan foods high in protein on the other hand, have fewer calories, a variety of sources of amino acids that form complete proteins in the body, and per weight, their percentage of protein in the amount of total calories is relatively high.

Some vegan foods high in protein are higher in protein percentage than others, however, so making sure to include a variety of vegan foods high in protein in your diet is important for achieving the amount of protein your body needs. Beef contains 7 grams of protein per ounce for about 75 calories, so let’s compare some better plant-based options that don’t come with the health risks beef and animal proteins do.

Here are five vegan foods high in protein and more protein per ounce than beef that also come with a higher percentage of protein per amount of calories:



1. Vegan Foods High in Protein: Spirulina


Per ounce, this food is 65 percent protein, the highest amount of protein percentage of all foods. In just 1 teaspoon, you’ll get 4 grams of protein, which is unheard of for all other foods. Spirulina is also a great source of iron, providing 80 percent of your daily needs in just 1 teaspoon, for only a total of 30 calories. You can add this blue green algae to your smoothies to mask the taste, and know you’re getting in a nice dose of B vitamins, protein, iron, and vital trace minerals. Since it’s also alkalizing, spirulina also reduces inflammation, unlike animal foods that contribute to it.



2. Vegan Foods High in Protein: Spinach


Spinach contains 51 percent protein (about 5 grams per cup for only 30 calories). It’s also a good source of iron and Vitamin C, and offers a delicious taste that is easy to enjoy. This much-loved green is also a great source of folate, an important vitamin for women that contributes to strength, brain function, and reproductive health. Adding a couple cups of spinach to your smoothie, salad, wrap, soup, or any other way, is an easy way to sneak in 10 grams of protein without the need for a powder whatsoever.



3. Vegan Foods High in Protein: Hemp Seeds


Hemp is one of the best, easy-to-use foods that’s rich in all essential amino acids. Per ounce (about 2 tablespoons) has 10 grams of protein, is high in fiber, and most of its calories come from beneficial proteins and omega 3 fatty acids, along with some lesser-known beneficial omega 6 fatty acids that actually lower cholesterol. Unlike animal-based proteins and sources of fat, hemp is very alkalizing to the body and also boosts the mood and energy thanks to high amounts of magnesium. It can also increase metabolism due to it containing 45 percent of your daily iron requirements in just one ounce. You can also use hemp protein, another fantastic way to get this whole food into your diet. We enjoy it in smoothies, raw treats, but you can even stir it into oatmeal and bake with it in place of flour if you like.



4. Vegan Foods High in Protein: Broccoli


Per calorie, broccoli has more protein than beef, which about 4.5 grams per 30 calories. Broccoli is also packed with amino acids, fiber, Vitamin B6 to improve your mood and is one of the best vegetables linked to fighting cancer. Red meat has repeatedly been linked to cancer, so give the florets more attention in your kitchen. Here are 12 Yummy Ways to Use Broccoli that will lead your muscles and heart to thank you over and over again!




5. Vegan Foods High in Protein: Almonds, Almond Butter or Peanut Butter


Almonds and almond butter both provide 7 grams per protein in one ounce, along with heart-healthy fats and Vitamin E. They’re also a good source of calcium and provide high doses of beneficial magnesium. Peanut butter is another high source of protein, with 8 grams per two tablespoons of peanut butter. While higher in calories than beef per ounce, these nut butters are rich in amino acids per ounce and also recommended as a good source of plant-based protein, even by the USDA.

Combine all these foods into a smoothie for a crazy, high-protein meal that your body will love and one that will shock you in how great it tastes! You’ll never know it contains good-for-you veggies!


Vegan Foods High in Protein: The No Beef Plant-Based Protein Smoothie


•1 cup spinach
•4 frozen broccoli florets (gives it a surprisingly great thick texture and the other ingredients hide the taste)
•1/2 cup frozen organic mixed berries or blueberries
•1 tablespoon cacao powder (also a great source of protein and more iron than beef)
•2-3 tablespoons hemp seeds
•1 tablespoon all natural raw almond butter or plain, all natural peanut butter
•1 cup non-dairy milk like almond milk or water
•5 ice cubes
•sweetener of choice (stevia, 1/2 a banana, a date, a fig, or maple syrup)

Directions: Add all the ingredients to your blender, blend and enjoy!


Don’t Forget…

You can also use other foods high in protein and amino acids such as pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, maca powder, goji berries, and even oats and quinoa or teff. Remember that plant-based foods have everything we need when we eat a variety of them and be sure to get enough during the day.

What’s your favorite source of plant-based protein?
