Sorghum keeps you full
Sorghum is a vegetarian’s dream when it comes to fulfilling the daily allotment of protein and fiber: 1/2 cup contains 10 grams of protein and 16 grams of dietary fiber. Cook it up like couscous or try popping it in a pan like popcorn. Here are more good sources of plant-based protein.
Amaranth is packed with protein
Carb lovers, rejoice! Amaranth is a grain that not only provides a hearty combo of fiber, potassium, calcium, iron, and other minerals, it also packs a serious punch of protein—one cup cooked contains a whopping nine grams, far greater than most other grains. Prepare it like you would oatmeal, toss it with fresh veggies and herbs for a light grain salad, or use as a coating on chicken or fish and bake in the oven for guilt-free crispiness. You can even bake with it in its flour form to add a sneaky helping of vitamins, protein, and minerals to your bread or pizza dough. Smart Flour Foods makes frozen pizza crust out of three ancient grains (including amaranth) that you can add your own toppings to and pop in the oven, as well as pre-made ancient grains pizzas that are ready in minutes.
