The Best Protein Sources Known Will Shock You

We have all been programmed from an early age to believe that the best source of protein on the planet is meat. The meat industry has ensured that and it has always been about maintaining an industry for profit rather than maintaining it for nutritional purposes.

The meat industry hijacked the protein discussion in the 1920’s in the USA and since then, we have all grown up with the belief that if we want to get the best protein, we need to be consuming meat.

This article will expose that belief as dubious at best and back it up with hard and fast evidence for you to see once and for all with data that demonstrates that clearly the highest sources of protein come from plants and not meat.

Did you know that today in the world, 6 out of 10 humans live on vegan diets?

Animals get protein from plants, so how can meat logically have more protein than plants when the animal has had to eat the plant, then be slaughtered, then the meat processed and packed then cooked before being eaten?

Protein is made up of amino acids that are destroyed when cooked, rendering the food lacking in nutritional value, whether that is meat or plants. However, since most humans eat cooked meat, it becomes hard to justify the value of the protein left once the flesh is cooked.

Proteins act as the framework for the cells and so are central to the cell’s structure.

Broccoli is the number one anti cancer green and this is amplified more in Broccoli sprouts.

In terms of the most powerful protein (55-70% of the plant itself) is Algae.

Plant foods that have complete proteins, meaning they contain all 9 essential Amino Acids are:

  • Sunflower seeds and sprouts
  • Sesame seeds
  • Sprout juices
  • Mung beans and their sprouts
  • Hemp seeds
  • wheat grass juice

Foods exposed to the most sunlight will be the ones with the most protein and so here is the list of those:

  • Blue-Green & Green Algae (54% & 52%)
  • Sea Vegetables (Important to note that they do not pick up radioactivity) They are high protein, high essential fats and the highest mineral count of any plants on the planet
  • Sprouts – as mentioned Broccoli sprouts is the highest anti-cancer agent. Also consider onion and garlic and cabbage sprouts, Mung Bean sprouts and other micro greens as well.
  • Mung Bean Sprouts are high in Zinc and great for balding, greying hair, breast and prostate cancers.

Let’s have a look at the data comparing protein levels in meat and plants. Thanks to Brian Clement from the Hippocrates Institute for making this data available.

Finally, remember that the way you regulate blood sugar and take away the addiction to sugar is by blasting your body with digestible protein.

Also, cooking destroys amino acids essential for body and brain function. Protein contains amino acids, so how can cooked meat be a real source of protein?

Doesn’t make sense does it!
