Which of the proteins listed above are plant-based? Beans are the winner here, and they are an amazing addition to any meal. Have you ever had beans at breakfast?

Today, you’ll be researching other plant-based proteins (especially those that you may not be familiar with) that you can add to breakfast.  Plant-based proteins are lower in saturated fat and cholesterol, and they’re often rich in fiber and other vitamins and minerals too.

Today, take about 45 minutes to research plant-based proteins. Then, write a paragraph in which you tell me about at least five different food items that contain plant-based proteins that you think would be suitable for breakfast and that you might like to try. Briefly describe each of these and how they may be used at breakfast.  Finally, search online for a delicious-looking breakfast recipe that contains one of these plant-based protein ingredients, and include the link with your paragraph.

Here’s how you will be graded:
