Ok, so here is a typical day of low fat raw vegan eating.
Breakfast: Hot Cocoa
Dinner: Omega-3 Walnut Dip with 2 heads of romaine lettuce
I entered all of these foods into Cronometer, a food tracking website, and voila, all of my protein requirements were met.
I ate nearly 50 grams of protein without any protein powder, fake meats, soy, or beans.
According to the Dietary Reference Intake, we need 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram or 0.36 grams per pound of body weight.
My ideal body weight is 115 pounds.
115 pounds x 0.36 = 41.4 grams of protein
So ideally, I need around 41-42 grams of protein everyday to maintain my ideal weight of 115 pounds.
In the example above, I got 48.4 grams of protein. That’s 7 grams in excess of what I need.
Again, that was without trying to eat a lot of protein that day.
And, I got only 7% of my calories from protein.
