Lupin: an innovative, protein-rich crop

“Lupini beans are the perfect vegan protein source, providing more protein than any other legume, with the exception of soybeans,” she explains. While most legumes, including chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans and navy beans provide 15 grams of protein per cup, Wong reveals “lupini beans have a whopping 26 grams per cup.”. According to information compiled by Superfoodly, lupini beans have more protein in a 100-calorie serving than other popular legumes including chickpeas and soybeans. They are complete proteins. Lupini beans have nearly three times as much protein as quinoa and eggs with all of the essential amino acids; this made them an excellent food for early Pharaohs, Roman civilizations, and other ancient groups.

Lupini is a bean pretty far off everyone’s radar, but is full of nutrients. As long as you prepare it correctly, this is a great way to meet protein needs.rn We’ve been told throughout our lives that sharing is caring, and I cannot agree more. That’s why I want to share with you what I’ve learned from personal experience. Lupini beans, peas, lentils, and other legumes are providing some exciting answers to the problems of modern food systems – in a way, they just might be magical after all.

“Not only are lupini beans more protein-rich than soy, they’re also an incredible sustainable food because they are used as a rotation crop,” Steichen says. Basically, sustainable farmers plant. Lupini Beans Nutrition Facts “In 100g (about 50 beans) of lupini beans, there are 120 calories, 12g of protein, 13g of carbohydrate, over 3g of fiber, and 1g of fat,” says Hultin.

They have about a third more protein per square inch than many other beans and legumes. Allibelle Foods Inc. offers Lupii, a line of plant-based protein bars in such varieties as almond butter cinnamon raisin, tahini lemon cranberry and peanut butter cacao nib. The snacks contain only.

  • How do I find a trainer? I have never done weight lifting training with a professional. I am vegan as well, so I would want a trainer who is open to that. How do I get started and where should I look for a good trainer?

  • Thank you Evita, that is very great information, love the thoroughness. The best. I love beans, all beans but do worry about bloating that lasts for days.

  • Sooooo happy to see you posting content again ������!!! Your work and knowledge is so appreciated �� and your book is on my bookshelf ready to be read (next on my list)! Love from Vienna/Austria/Europe!

  • Love your detailed presentation on beans, and all those wonderful recipes. Do you have a book on whole plant food with recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner & snacks? Quick question, do white beans in particular spike ones sugar up? Is there any particular beans to suggest?

  • There are a percentage of the population who can’t eat the FAVA bean genus, due to their metabolism. Its fascinating, but its poisonous to them. You can google it and its kind of mind blowing.

  • Ahh, now  this is the life.  Seeing  Natalie  back to her  flexing  ��  ways. ��…  Thanks for the insight here.  So with those vegan sausages, what type of dishes would you use them most often with??  …  Seems they would be great in pasta, soup, and casserole  type meals especially.   Oh and nice tosses from George by the way.  ����

  • Great ideas as always. That top looks gorgeous. Be careful there seems to be a very violent person in. your house who throws things at you is that you Geeorge?

  • Thank you! You always find the best vegan protein snacks and food items that are actually high in protein and low in extra gunk. I’m on my way now to get some of those longeve crumbles. I can imagine so many great uses for them and I love pea protein items!

  • Edamame is a subspecies of the soy bean for tofu. Even though its in the same genus, its not exactly the same as you can’t make tofu out of edamame. But, you’re basically right about the protein content with Edamame versus the soy beans used for tofu.

  • Everything can cause problems just depends on the person? Soy/tofu causes hormone issues or acne? Beans can cause inflammation? I guess pea products is best? But they are much more expensive �� could I just eat peas alone ahah is that considered a legume too?

  • W.E.I.R.D…..Last month I felt the sense to buy two large (4kg) bags of beans! I did not know why, but I did and my fridge is full of bean containers! I have been eating chick peas and beans!
    Who knew??? Thank you for this!

  • I eat tofu everyday and also cook mine in the airfryer. So easy and delish! Which airfryer do you like best? I’ve had mine for years and am wanting to get a new one. I feel a good investment since I use it every day. I have not yet tried the pea protein. Adding to my list of things to buy/try. Thanks girl!:D

  • Hi Nathalie! Thanks for your tips! Between all of those I would choose tofu and tempeh. I don t eat so much processed food or try too and tofu is the only one I like to include (because of its low carbs index). Actually I would love to see a video talking about beans and this kind of more “natural” proteins…Please =) and how to avoid them to bloat us so much…Well at least some of them =) Thank you, lots of love to you guys!

  • Respectfully speaking….you are not one bit less than visual effing perfection. The sight of you truly is an inspiring, as well as amazing thing…Be well

  • Boa tarde, seus videos são realmente fantasticos, é por isso que todos eles merecem bastante likes������������������������������������������������

  • This channel is super underrated. What I like is the fact Natalie talks about the TASTE as well as the health of the food. The food has to taste good in order for us to stay eating it.

  • Tofu, lentils and beans are my daily staples. I love nutritional yeast—I could sprinkle it on everything!!! Great info Natalie! Thanks ♥️

  • Always clear, always concise. I live how you explain things without being loud or gimmicky. Thanks so much for the information, presented calmly and clearly!

  • I try to always have Lightlife Mexican crumbles in my fridge because they are perfect to whip up a quick burrito or taco. I top it with nutritional yeast and taco sauce and usually put it with fat-free refried beans. I found some delicious refried black beans that I’m in love with currently. I’ve also put the crumbles on top of Explore black bean spaghetti with nutritional yeast and taco sauce. YUM.

  • Personally, while tracking my intake when I transitioned to a vegan diet, I need 2 servings a day of legumes to meet minimal lysine requirements (if I don’t eat potatoes that day). I think this conscious effort to meet lysine needs could be overlooked by many. Some suggestions besides beans and potatoes are frozen peas, sacha inchi powder, and pea milk if struggling at times to get that second portion in. The other essential amino acids and total protein intake I agree are easily met.

  • I started trying Field Roast breakfast sausages and I’m so glad I picked them up at Target! They had a buy 2 get 1 free deal. They’re super delicious and I heat them up in my breakfast oats.:) I tried their burgers and they tasted amazing in a chili I made for a few days.:) Too bad my Target doesn’t offer more Field Roast options aside from the breakfast sausage and burgers. Wish there was an online retailer I could buy them from. I like Field Roast because of the simple ingredients.

  • Your amazing…I tried making a dressing from organic coconut cream, onion, garlic, lemon, pink salt, paprika, dash cayenne pepper…I am proud of myself…and your so right the sky is the limit…THANK YOU!

  • My mom always put two cloves of garlic…when cooking beans makes them cook on time 45 to 60 minutes…you made me laugh when you said beans that you had when you build your home…because I still have them in jars for style…Hahaha!!!

  • Omg I have been having shoulder problems. Thank you for posting your mobility session! I had never rolled my back out that way and that felt amazing!!

  • Whew! That was a long break. �� Glad you’re back! Love this video…now I have a lot of tasty new things to try. Off-topic question: is that a fitness tracker you’re wearing? Is it one you’d recommend? Been thinking of getting something to track my steps/shame myself into actually getting in some steps(!). But they’re are so many I get overwhelmed. Also, if you’re taking suggestions for videos, I’d love to hear how you like to use different plant milks. Great video and great to see you again. Happy new year!

  • I’m not vegan or vegetarian but so many of these are things everyone can love! Nutritional yeast is honestly a game changer and so underutlilized. So good! Great for those who can’t have dairy but love that cheesy flavour. Peanut flour is another goodie! For baking and giving things like oats and such extra peanutty flavour.


  • Thank you so much for another excellent and comprehensive video. I really enjoyed this. I am pretty good at getting my beans in every day and either cook them in a pressure cooker or use canned but I will try to soak them more in future. ��

  • Unlike soy though, it needs to be kept GMO free. Those of us with an interest in actually eating Lupin don’t want the same messing around with it that Soya, and other crops are having done, just so that huge companies can make more money at the expense of our ecosystem.

  • Hey Natalie! Great Video! love your content. I recently found a vegan protein pancake mix available at whole foods. Not sure if its available any where else. It’s a Birch Benders brand plant based protein pancake and waffle mix. It is soooo good and the macros are great. Great for those that are in a pinch and do not have time to make protein powder pancakes.

  • My favorite vegan protein sources are soy in general. Edamame beans in salad, tofu, seitan, hemp seeds, falafel and lentil/bean pasta �� can’t wait for your video on how to make the homemade seitan �� you forgot to mention chia and pumpkin seeds ��

  • I subscribed to the channel after watching the interview with Dr. Longo. I am struggling with my health after believing the high protein/carnivore group. In the last 2 years I have ruined my life. I am a short 165 cm guy and weigh 82 kg. I have high fatigue, low potency and what not. I am convinced with the new way of life after the Dr. Longo interview. Miss Whitney, any final words for my new lifestyle? Help me how to start and can I eat Salmon fish? Thanks

  • Love your videos! especially that all of your info is fact based research. What have you found about mock meat substitutes? I have heard many different things about these types of vegetarian proteins and have even seen boca crumbles in weight watcher programs. They also don’t seem high carbs or fat. That’s said I have heard the are not good for you and if you are someone trying to lose weight to stay away. What do you think about these protein sources? Video idea?

  • You cannot recover as quick on a plant-based diet when training for a half Iron Man or other workouts as you can from animal products that’s a myth I heard

  • I wish so bad I could eat Tofu and Edamame but I am allergic to Soy. I’m trying to get my body ready for Prep but figuring out what I can consume without Seitan, Tempeh, Tofu, Edamame is really hard. Any advice or tips for someone who is more RAW vegan…I try very much not to eat anything processed.. Help:)

  • There’s so many trying to scare us into one diet or another! I feel grateful for the straightforward reassuring advice you give us:-)

  • Thank you, Whitney! Paleo community is driving me crazy. All I hear recently is that vegetarians are mineral deficient and starving, plant-based diets are not optimal, you will get sick if you don’t eat liver and collagen etc… and my favorite you should live like a caveman:O I was wondering what are your thoughts collagen and bone broth? Is there real magic in them or it’s just another trend?

  • Best is low protein low fat high carbohydrate diet. There is no need for high protein foods like beans or nuts although they are fine in moderated amounts. Best is sweet potatoes and vegetables. Then add grains. And one or two tablespoons ground flax. Fruit can be added to offset high protein foods like beans.
