If you are looking to live longer, the type of protein you are eating may make a difference.
The Doctors discuss a study that found those who consume plant-based protein, as opposed to protein from meat sources, were less likely to die. The study took place over 20 years and discovered those who at the most plant proteins were 13 percent less likely to die during the course of the study and 16 percent were less likely to die for cardiovascular causes.
In addition to getting your always-needed protein, when you eat plant-based you will likely also be consuming other important nutrients like fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants.
Some great plant-based proteins you should consider adding to your meals include tofu, black beans, quinoa, and snap peas.
A Doctors' protein favorite is beans, because they are inexpensive, come in so many different varieties, and can easily be added to most meals from salads to stirfry, or as a great side.
