Healthy Fats

Nut-based proteins contain a decent amount of healthy fats in addition to plant-based proteins. Healthy fats can help with balancing hormones, maintaining a healthy appetite, and controlling sugar levels. 

Protein supplements from are also quite easy to digest if eaten in the form of nut butter like almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter, and hazelnut butter. Nut butter is also very delicious, which is a definite plus.

Athletic Performance and Weight Loss

One would assume that all athletes gain their muscle mass through the consumption of copious amounts of protein-rich meat. For those who are trying to build up their strength or muscle mass but want to cut down on how much meat and dairy they consume—you’re in luck. 

Plant-based proteins have been shown to improve athletes’ performance, energy levels, and ability to recover quickly.

Losing weight can also be made easier by consuming more plant proteins. Fiber-rich plant proteins help dieters feel fuller for longer and can help combat overeating or binge eating as well. Feeling fuller for longer can definitely help in weight loss.

Improved Appetite

Whole plant proteins can help one feel fuller for longer. This is a natural result of adequate protein intake. However, when it comes to planting proteins like beans and legumes, the fiber that naturally occurs in these foods helps keep us fuller for even longer than meat protein would. In fact, a study found that people who consumed plant-based protein-rich meals ate 12 percent fewer calories in their next meal when compared to a meaty protein-rich meal.
