If you're like many people, you'll probably answer with the word &quot;protein.&quot;</p> <p>You may already know that the protein in meat is &quot;<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Complete_protein">complete</a>,&quot; meaning that it contains all nine of the essential amino acids in adequate proportions necessary for our dietary needs.</p> <p>But did you know that there are other, meatless foods that contain complete protein as well? And that in addition, did you know that these might even help you lose weight? (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/35-slow-cooker-recipes-for-busy-or-lazy-vegetarians?ref=seealso">35 Slow Cooker Recipes for Busy Vegetarians</a>)</p> <p>Although meat has protein, it also tends to have zero fiber and lots of fat. For example, even <a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/beef-products/6193/2">90 percent lean ground beef</a> has 10 grams of fat per 100 gram serving. And one <a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/pork-products/10297/2">pork chop</a> has 4 grams of fat.</p> <p>These eight meatless complete proteins, conversely, are generally low fat and high fiber. So what are you waiting for? Check them out &mdash; along with some recommended starter recipes below &mdash; and start eating complete, meat-free, protein.</p> <h2>1. Chia Seeds</h2> <p>Native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala, and known for their use in the popular Chia Pets back in the 1980's, <a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3061/2">chia seeds</a> pack 11 grams of fiber, and 4 grams of protein into just one ounce. Chia seeds have an Amino Acid Score of 115 (an Amino Acid Score of 100 or higher indicates a complete protein). And they make a mean <a href="http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/chia-pudding">chia pudding</a>.</p> <h2>2. Soybeans</h2> <p>You've seen <a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4376/2">soybeans</a> processed into tofu and soymilk, soybeans pack 10 grams of fiber and 29 grams of protein into a single cup. They also have an Amino Acid Score of 118, all of which you can drink with some beautiful homemade <a href="http://www.tinyurbankitchen.com/2012/02/homemade-soy-milk.html">soymilk</a>.</p> <h2>3. Quinoa</h2> <p><a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/10352/2">Quinoa</a> (pronounced <em>keen-wah</em>) originated in the Andean region of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Colombia, and is without a doubt &quot;the grain of the moment.&quot; One cup has 5 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein, and while very versatile, this <a href="http://kidtestedfirefighterapproved.com/2012/04/12/citrus-black-bean-quinoa-salad/">citrus black bean quinoa salad</a> is a great place to start.</p> <h2>4. Amaranth</h2> <p>Once a staple food of the Aztecs, <a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5676/2">amaranth</a> has an Amino Acid Score of 108, and makes a hearty <a href="http://www.glowkitchen.com/2014/01/amaranth-breakfast-cereal-2/">amaranth breakfast cereal</a>.</p> <h2>5. Spinach</h2> <p>Ten grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber was enough for Popeye, so what about you? And if you think <a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2626/2">spinach</a> is all about salads, you clearly need to try this <a href="http://simplegreensmoothies.com/Recipes/beginners-luck">simple green smoothie</a>.</p> <h2>6. Black-Eyed Peas</h2> <p><a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4332/2">Black-eyed peas</a> are named for the black spots which looks like black eyes. They are traditionally eaten in the South, and on New Year's Day to bring good luck. One cup has 11 grams of fiber, and 13 grams of protein, and all of that goodness goes into these <a href="http://healthyslowcooking.com/2013/11/16/sloppy-black-eyed-peas/">sloppy black-eyed peas</a>.</p> <h2>7. Split Peas</h2> <p>Originally round when harvested, <a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4354/2">split peas</a> are mechanically separated after they've been dried to encourage faster cooking. One cup has a whopping 16 grams of fiber, and 16 grams of protein, so demon-possessed girls aren't the only ones who should be enjoying <a href="http://cleangreensimple.com/2012/04/split-pea-soup/">split pea soup</a>.</p> <h2>8. Cauliflower</h2> <p>And finally: <a href="http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2390/2">cauliflower</a> comes from the same species of vegetables that includes broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, and kale. Although most commonly known for its white color, cauliflower also comes in orange and purple varieties, and just one small head has 7 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein. Try some <a href="http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/roasted-cauliflower-steaks">Roasted Cauliflower Steak</a> and see how they stack up to those lesser, <em>actual</em> steaks.</p> <p><em>What's your favorite non-animal protein source?

But these little guys also serve as the glue to make great baked goods, provide a lot of nutrition for a low cost, and can serve as the basis for a whole host of delicious meals. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/egg-cellent-ideas-for-money-saving-and-menu-planning">Egg-cellent Ideas for Money Saving and Menu Planning</a>)</p> <p>Here are 10 things you might not know about this frugal food:</p> <h3>1. Chicken Eggs Come in More Colors Than White and Brown</h3> <p>Different breeds of chickens produce different colors of eggs. In addition to the typical white and brown, some chickens produce blue, blue-green, reddish-brown, or even speckled eggs. A great place to look for atypical egg colors is at your local farmers market; one vendor at my market sells a dozen eggs in a mix of blue, white, cream, and brown.</p> <h3>2. You Can Use Water to Easily Determine the Age of an Egg</h3> <p>If you have eggs of questionable freshness, fill a bowl with enough water to cover the eggs, then add them to the bowl. If an egg sinks to the bottom, it's fresh. If it floats to the top, it's not. This happens because as an egg ages, it develops a larger and larger air pocket in its shell. According to <em>The Oxford Companion to Food</em>, it's actually better to choose a less-fresh egg if you're hard-boiling it, because in fresh eggs &quot;the white adheres closely to the shell, making it more difficult to remove the latter.&quot;</p> <h3>3. Eggs Are a Great Hangover Cure</h3> <p>As you can see from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/the-ultimate-list-of-hangover-cures">Paul's list of hangover cures</a>, eating eggs is a great way to help shake off the previous evening's festivities.</p> <h3>4. Raw Eggs Can Make Delicious &mdash; and Safe &mdash; Food and Drinks</h3> <p>Classic recipes for mayonnaise, caesar salad dressing, lemon curd, and <a href="http://www.artofdrink.com/ingredients/misc/egg/egg-whites-and-cocktails">several cocktails</a> include raw eggs. While salmonella is certainly a concern in using raw eggs or other raw animal products, you can reduce your risk by using the freshest eggs possible (ideally locally produced) or purchasing pasturized eggs.</p> <h3>5. Chickens Aren't the Only Birds That Lay Edible Eggs</h3> <p>Duck, quail, emu, goose, and ostrich eggs can all be cooked up.</p> <h3>6. What Eggs You Buy Can Be a Very Personal Decision</h3> <p>Eggs tend to be a battleground food, with lots of conflicting information available about which eggs are best for you, your budget, the chickens, and the environment. For more information about choosing the eggs that are right for you, check out Carrie's post about <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/supermarket-angst-part-ii-what-eggs-should-i-buy">egg angst at the supermarket</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;Philip's post on <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/real-eggs">&quot;real&quot; eggs</a>.</p> <h3>7. You Can Make Your Eggs Cube-Shaped</h3> <p>Somebody invented a product that <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Egg-Cuber-Square-Press/dp/B002C8ZDQE">presses hard-boiled eggs into cubes</a>. I suppose this would be useful if, um, you really, really needed to stack your hard-boiled eggs.</p> <h3>8. Eggshells Are Useful!</h3> <p>Don't throw your eggshells away. You can carefully <a href="http://craftydaisies.com/2007/03/28/hallowed-easter-eggs/">hollow out eggshells</a> to decorate around Easter, use them to <a href="http://www.greenissexy.org/2008/03/28/recipe-of-the-month-6/">start seeds</a>, or help <a href="http://www.motherearthnews.com/Organic-Gardening/2007-08-01/Garden-Slug-Control.aspx">control slugs in your garden</a>.</p> <h3>9. Preserved Eggs Known as &quot;Century Eggs&quot; Are a Chinese Delicacy</h3> <p>According <a href="http://chemistry.about.com/b/2008/10/16/are-century-eggs-soaked-in-horse-urine.htm">Anne Marie Helmenstine</a>, About.com's guide to chemistry, these dark-colored preserved eggs &quot;are made by storing raw eggs for a few months in a mixture of wood ash, salt, lime, and maybe tea with rice straw or clay.&quot; But they are not, as has often been rumored, preserved in horse urine. I actually ate a century egg once as part of an eating contest. I wish I could tell you what it tasted like, but my previous feat had been to eat two massive hot peppers, and they utterly destroyed my sense of taste for the next half hour.</p> <h3>10. There Are Hundreds, If Not Thousands, Ways to Prepare Eggs</h3> <p>Just check out the 1898 book <em><a href="http://books.google.com/books?id=9f4YAAAAYAAJ&amp;dq=eggs&amp;pg=PA9#v=onepage&amp;q&amp;f=false">Eggs, and How to Use Them</a></em>, available for free on Google Books, which boasts over 500 recipes.</p> <p><em>Do you have a favorite egg fact &mdash; or a favorite way to prepare eggs?

It's difficult, especially when you are surrounded by <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/6-plant-based-diet-tricks-for-carnivores">carnivores</a>. Especially dismissive carnivores. But I was vegan once before, and I'd like to try it again, since it was the only time in my life where I truly felt healthy and vibrant. I'm pretty sure that (along with exercise) veganism is the key to being a good diabetic, and to weight loss &mdash; at least for me.</p> <p>One of the things I've noticed about veganism is the importance of getting enough fat in your diet. Oh, sure, there's the protein issue, but I eat lots of tofu and have never had a problem with anemia. Another problem for vegans, especially busy vegans who don't live on organic vegetable farms with their dreadlocked children and professional chef spouse, is making veggies taste really good, good enough to overpower the desire to give up and head to the nearest fast food chain. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/25-frugal-items-for-your-organic-vegan-grocery-list">25 Frugal Items for Your Organic Vegan Grocery List</a>)</p> <p>You can only sautee some kale in olive oil and garlic so many times before you want to scream.</p> <p>But without fat, you can stuff your face with <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/25-cheap-and-tasty-frozen-broccoli-recipes">broccoli</a> until the cows come home, and you'll still be hungry. In fact, you might start eyeing the cows with newfound enthusiasm.</p> <p>Behold peanut sauce! One of my new tactics is to whip up a bunch of kick-ass vegan sauces that I can just throw on top of whatever it is that I'm planning on eating. I'll be publishing others over the next few weeks. None of the recipes will be limited to vegans, of course. They taste great on fish and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/10-things-to-do-with-chicken-leg-quarters">chicken</a>, or even other meats. You can throw them on at the last minute, or add broth and stew all kinds of things in them.</p> <p><em>Note: People with peanut allergies can substitute other nut butters, or soy butter, in place of the peanut butter.</em></p> <h2>Perfect Peanut Sauce</h2> <p>My first recipe comes from <a href="http://cookingwithamy.blogspot.com/2005/07/perfect-peanut-sauce-recipe.html">Cooking with Amy</a>. It's my favorite one, and so easy to make. It's what I use for dipping vegan spring rolls.</p> <ul> <li>1/4 cup peanut butter (natural, no sugar added kind)</li> <li>2 teaspoons soy sauce</li> <li>1 tablespoon brown sugar</li> <li>1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice</li> <li>1/4 cup coconut milk (lite is fine, if you prefer or substitute water)</li> <li>1/4 cup water</li> <li>red chili flake to taste</li> <li>chili garlic sauce to taste or 1 clove crushed garlic</li> </ul> <p><strong>Optional</strong></p> <ul> <li>sesame oil</li> <li>curry paste</li> <li>grated ginger</li> <li>shallots sauteed till brown in oil</li> <li>Worcestershire sauce (Raedia's idea)* <em>Editor's update - Worcestershire sauce is not vegan</em></li> </ul> <p>Combine all ingredients with a whisk in a small bowl, adding the water last. Pour into a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until sauce begins to bubble and thicken. Experiment with this sauce adding a teaspoon at a time of one the optional additions and tasting as you go. Serve hot or cold.</p> <h2>Thai Peanut Sauce</h2> <p>AllRecipes.com offers this great recipe for <a href="http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/The-Best-Thai-Peanut-Sauce/Detail.aspx">Thai peanut sauce</a>, which I like best with tofu. I LOVE the cilantro in it.</p> <ul> <li>1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter</li> <li>1/2 cup coconut milk</li> <li>3 tablespoons water</li> <li>3 tablespoons fresh lime juice</li> <li>3 tablespoons soy sauce</li> <li>1 tablespoon fish sauce</li> <li>1 tablespoon hot sauce</li> <li>1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root</li> <li>3 cloves garlic, minced</li> <li>1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro</li> </ul> <p>In a bowl, mix the peanut butter, coconut milk, water, lime juice, soy sauce, fish sauce, hot sauce, ginger, and garlic. Mix in the cilantro just before serving.</p> <h2>Indonesian Peanut Sauce</h2> <p><a href="http://homecooking.about.com/library/archive/blsauce33.htm">About.com</a> offers this recipe for Indonesian peanut sauce. It's a little tangier, and perfect over salads (like Indonesian specialty salad gado gado &mdash; and yes, I know that gado gado isn't technically vegan, but it's close enough for this post). It's a little more labor-intensive, but lip-smackingly good!</p> <p>Yield: 1 cup</p> <ul> <li>1 teaspoon sea salt</li> <li>2 garlic cloves, minced (1 tablespoon)</li> <li>12 chiles de arbol or chiles Japones, softened in hot water, dried, seeded, and minced</li> <li>1 tablespoon minced galangal or ginger</li> <li>1 stalk lemongrass, tough outer layers and green parts removed, minced (1/4 cup)</li> <li>2 shallots, minced (1/4 cup)</li> <li>1 teaspoon red miso</li> <li>3 tablespoon vegetable oil</li> <li>1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar</li> <li>1/4 cup creamy peanut butter</li> <li>1/2 cup coconut cream</li> <li>1/4 cup tamarind juice</li> </ul> <p>Pound the salt and garlic in a mortar with a pestle into a fine paste. Add the chiles and pound to a puree. One at a time, add the galangal, lemongrass, shallots, and red miso, in sequence, adding each one only after the previous ingredient has been completely pureed and incorporated into the paste. Transfer to a bowl or to a glass jar with a right-fitting lid. Refrigerated, the seasoning paste will keep for a month.</p> <p>Or, if using a blender, add all the above ingredients plus the vegetable oil and puree.</p> <p>Saute the chile paste in the oil (or the chile paste-oil mixture) in a saucepan over mediium-high heat until it exudes a pleasant aroma, about 2 to 3 minutes. Lower the heat and add the sugar, peanut butter, coconut cream and tamarind juice. Stir to mix, and heat until the mixture boils and thickens, about 2 minutes.</p> <p>Transfer to a bowl and let cool before serving. Stored in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid in the refrigerator, the sauce will keep for a couple of weeks. If it congeals and thickens, dilute with 2 to 3 tablespoons water and cook over low heat in a saucepan, stirring until smooth.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/andrea-karim">Andrea Karim</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/perfect-peanut-sauce">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.
