There are some sound facts here, but here's the problem: eating spinach/broccoli etc. is not as easy as eating the equivalent chicken, and the author totally ignores this point. But this is not important either, because at then end of the day, no vegetarian is eating these foods for their protein needs. Chickpeas, beans, nuts and wheat are all excellent sources of protein which can be more readily consumed.

Dear Jaya Good afternoon! Thank you for your love and appreciation in sharing with me that brocoli contains lots of protein. I am sending back love and appreciation multiplied many times to let you know that spinach also contains lots of protein ... Just like the attached article quoting Popeyes. Happy reading!

You say 51% of calories in spinach are protein. This is EXTREMELY misleading as a very high portion of this protein is in the form of cellulose. Which humans DO NOT have the capacity to break down. Meaning a very large portion of the protein from spinach will go right through you. UNLESS you are juicing it.

Thank you for this article. I had no idea that plants could provide enough protein. I was a vegetarian for a few years, many years ago. I was exercising all the time then and was always worried about getting enough protein. Now I'm much older but still worry about getting enough protein since my natural desire is vegetables, legumes, and some cheese. You have just made my desired diet possible!
