protein in peas
Did you know there are 4 grams of protein in a serving of peas? Isn't that wild? I would never have guessed there was any protein at all in peas.

SHHHH! the meat and dairy industry does NOT want the public to kow that! they work hard to use their money and political power to convince America that we cannot get protein without animal products.

11:45 Too true!
100gms raw broccoli - 3 gms protein, 34 calories
100 gms cooked spinach - 3 gms protein, 23 calories
100 gms lean hamburger (aka 85%lean, aka ground round) - 19 gms protein, 215 calories
100 gms canned pinto beans - 5 gms protein, 86 calories
Broccoli = 11.3 calories per protein gram
Spinach = 7.6 calories per protein gram
Ground Round = 11.3 calories per protein gram
pinto beans = 17.2 calories per protein gram
Of course with the broccoli, spinach and beans you get lots of fiber, vitamins, and phytonutrients.
With the burger you get saturated fat, cholesterol, hormones, etc. And fries!
