Protein is a vital lifeforce for us and consumption of requisite quantities of protein based food is important for good and robust health. Out there in the West, people generally consume a protein rich diet as they consume a lot of fish and meat. For vegetarian people, there are limited sources of protein. Over here, we will have a look at some of the best natural foods that could offer you protein supply for the entire day. One must try to focus on inculcating these protein sources in your everyday diet. Starting and then stopping protein rich diet is not a very good solution. For the record, the recommended dietary allowance for protein is 0.8 grams per kg of your weight. So, if you are 100 Kgs in weight, you would need to consume 80 grams of protein every day.

Pulses or Dal are one of the biggest and easily available sources of protein. You must try to consume pulse of your choice at least once a day. In India, people generally include Dal in their daily diets. A small bowl of pulse would add part of your protein requirement of the day to your diet. Kidney beans is also rich protein source and consuming baked beans or cooked beans would help you take care of protein intake for the day.
