Superfoods: Which Ones Contain More Proteins?

SHARE

Proteins: are they good or bad for your health?

Some diets require to eat many protein-based foods and avoid carbs. Others say quite the opposite and demonize meat and cheese. Which is the right way to take?

As Plato’s nutritionists say, to feel good one should follow a varied daily dietary routine. But there’s a highlight on proteins!

It seems people usually don’t eat enough proteins, especially for breakfast.

This is why Plato’s dishes always have a good portion of proteins, starting from the morning!

In this food story you’ll discover which superfoods contain more proteins, in order to keep the energy (and flavor!) high all day!

 

Proteins: which and how much you should eat to feel great  

Even the World Health Organization says so: proteins are crucial for the well-being of our body.

In fact, there’s a minimum level people should overcome to be healthy: 0,83 gr of proteins for each kg of body weight.

If we round up at 1 gr, it means that a person who weighs 60 kg should eat 60 gr of proteins every day.

But there’s something important to consider: the sources of proteins contain 20 to 25 gr of proteins each 100 gr on average. What does it mean?

It means that reaching and overcoming the minimum level required is not easy!

Especially if one doesn’t eat proteins in all of the third main daily meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The sources of proteins which should never lack in our daily routine are: eggs, meat, fish, cheese and nuts.

To enrich the variety and meet the dietary needs of vegetarians, vegans and people who are intolerant to specific ingredients, Plato Chic Superfood created a selection of protein-based dishes.

Tasty, balanced and made special by the presence of protein superfoods!

 

The List of the Superfoods Which Are Higher in Proteins

 Eggs

They are the source of proteins with the highest biological value.

It means they contain the amino acids our body needs more to function adequately.

Despite the fact that for a long time they have been considered too high in calories, in fact eggs are superfoods rich in vitamins (especially vitamin D), phosphorous and lecithin, that helps regulate the level of cholesterol in the blood.

Try our Egg cooked at low temperature with veggies spaghetti, cumin, mint and basil pesto and raspberry sauce!

Or Plato’s super energetic and tasty breakfast! Also perfect for a weekend brunch.

 

Salmon

Plato’s chefs and nutritionists love it!

This fish so soft and delicate is rich in omega 3, high quality amino acids and vitamin D.

Moreover, it’s versatile and very satiating!

A must-try: Plato’s Velo Matcha Salmon. Tasty, fresh and original, this Velo combines the salmon with a sauce made with matcha tea, a powerful antioxidant.

 

Greek yogurt

Creamy, fresh and rich, Greek yogurt is a source of proteins and cultures useful for the well-being of the intestine.

At Plato’s, we serve it with fresh fruit, sweet Veli and superfood extracts for an elegant, light and balanced breakfast.

 

Hemp seeds

They contain essential amino acids, omega 3 and omega 6, vitamins (especially vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant) and lots of minerals.

 

Chia seeds

A very versatile superfood, they are rich in omega 3 and omega 6, calcium, iron, potassium and vitamin C. A great vegetable source of proteins and antioxidants, together with hemp seeds they can be used as protein boosters in Plato’s smoothies, or to give an extra crunchy touch to your dish.

 

Nuts

Almonds, pine nuts, peanuts and pumpkin seeds are important sources of amino acids, minerals, omega 3 and vitamins.

This is why Plato Chic Superfood’s dishes are rich in nuts!

From the crunchy breading of our chicken breast, to the smoothies and the Veli, these superfoods are a great (and vegan friendly) solution to add an extra dose of proteins in your daily nutrition.

 

Spirulina

The benefits of this fresh water micro-algae are a lot.

It’s rich in vitamins, trace elements and antioxidants, but it also contains more proteins than terrestrial plants. In fact, it is composed of 60% proteins! 

Plato loves adding it to smoothies and extracts, as a protein booster.

 

Moringa

One of the most loved superfoods at Plato’s, where the chefs uses the powder made with the leaves of the moringa tree to create the Moringa Tagliatelle with raw beef ragù, green beans and pizzaiola powder.

Not only it’s the only vegetable food that has a full protein content, more vitamin C than lemon, lots of iron, magnesium and vitamin B6. Moringa is also very good!

Tofu

Created by the clotting from soy milk, this veggie “cheese” contains amino acids, polyunsaturated fats and antioxidants.

For a unique vegetarian lunch, Plato created the super tasty Velo L’Arcimboldo, where raw veggies and tofu are enriched in flavor with a yummy vegetable mayo. A must-try!
