Check out these vegetarian sources of protein for an easy way to increase your protein consumption

Protein is a crucial component in the wound healing process. When a body is not consuming a sufficient protein intake, it is unable to repair itself properly.

The current recommended daily protein intake for adults is between 20 percent and 35 percent of their diet. Wound care patients, whose bodies require more nutrients, may need to err on the higher side of that scale to properly nourish themselves.

Consuming a plate that is upwards of 30 percent protein is a fairly simple process for meat eaters, but vegetarians often find it more difficult to increase their intake of this nutrient, as it is often associated with animals products like meat, eggs, fish and dairy. While it might seem challenging to eat a high-protein diet that contains none of these items, there are actually plenty of meat-free, protein-packed vegetarian options out there – and many of them are delicious.
