Balancing Protein whether you are a Carnivore or Vegetarian in U.S.


Here’s a shocker, most people in America consume too much protein. Want to know what too much protein intake looks like? A shortened life, kidney stones, dehydration, and calcium loss.

So how much protein do you need a day? Online answers fall around 46 grams for women and 56 grams for men.

You can find a balanced amount of protein in a ton of foods whether you are a carnivore or vegetarian! Just take a look below…In college I was a vegetarian, because I couldn’t afford to eat the good meats listed below. With getting sick I added regular frozen chicken and tuna fish into my diet because I’m living at home and don’t have food options aka I don’t have money to buy my own food so I eat what is here.

Meats:
grass-fed beef not grain
organic chicken not regular frozen chicken
wild salmon not farmed salmon
tuna fish not fish sticks or popcorn shrimp

Vegetables:
avocado
broccoli
spinach
kale
peas
sweet potato

Legumes:
soybeans
lentils
refried beans
garbanzo beans/chickpeas
pinto/kidney/black beans

Nuts and Seeds:
almonds and almond butter not peanuts and peanut butter
cashews
sesame seeds
walnuts
pistachios

Non-Dairy Milk:
soy
almond
hemp

Grains:
quinoa not green beans or any other large starchy beans
brown rice

Other:
organic DHA-enhanced eggs not egg substitute or regular eggs
