Top 5 Plant Based Sources of Protein


Day 1 of the #plantfueledyoga Challenge: Strength & Protein

“People eat meat and think they will become as strong as an ox, forgetting that the ox eats grass.”

~ Pino Caruso

There are tons and tons of plant based sources in which to pack on the protein (and a bajillion of resources out there to help educate yourself). For Day 1 of the #plantbasedyoga challenge, we are delving into the Top 5 Plant Based Sources of Protein to incorporate into your diet.

  1. Lentils – 17g of protein per cup
  2. Hemp Seeds – 16g of protein in 3 tablespoons
  3. Beans – 12-15g of protein per cup
  4. Quinoa – 11g of protein per cup
  5. Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Mushrooms (cooked) – 4g of protein per cup

Why not try changing it up every once and awhile? Replace that meat with a plant-packed-punch of protein!

Your Strength Yoga Challenge: Warrior Series

Start off in mountain pose, dive over your feet for a half lift, then step your right foot back.

Come into a crescent lunge, then come up to a Warrior I. Hold for a few breathes, then flow into Warrior II.

From here, move into reverse warrior by bringing the rear hand down to the back leg, palm facing down. Turn the front palm to face upwards and extend the front arm up towards the sky, palm facing toward the back of the room, reaching your heart up toward the sky.

Raise your left hand for the full twist. Bring your hand down to meet the ground, bend your right hand, then take your back leg back down to the ground, into a runner’s lunge. Bring your right leg back to meet your left leg, coming into plank. Then, bend your elbows for chaturanga!

Repeat on the other side. Check me & Sarah out on Instagram for a clip of the series.

Feel the strength in this series, feel strong, feel grounded!

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at

      1. Definitely dairy at first, but since then I’ll strangely miss eggs every once in a while. Usually I’ll make a tofu scramble and all is right again 🙂
