All protein is the same right? You may surprised to find out that this isn't the case. That's why it's especially important to be aware of this when most dietary protein is plant based. Protein molecules are compromised of 20 different building blocks called amino acids . Some of these our body produces and some we need to get from our diet known as "essential".
Not all plant protein sources contain all the essential aminos our bodies need. soy and quinoa, however, are some of the few plant sources of complete protein. A great snack with this plant based protein is our Mindful Nutty Quinoa Bites! Getting all the essential aminos can also be achieved by mixing non complete sources like whole grains and legumes to ensure adequate intake of quality protein. Or if you just want a tasty, no hassle option pick up some bitty quinoa bites from My Mindful Market today!
