Legumes Beans, lentils, and peas are all legumes, staple foods around the world and valuable sources of plant- based protein, fiber, and B vitamins. Our Bulk Foods department has bin after bin of legumes, ready for you to select. Grains A staple to almost any diet, grains provide needed calories, B vitamins, and protein. Whole, unrefined grains (including ancient grains) provide more protein per carbohydrate because the highly nutritious bran and germ are left intact. In refined grains, much of the nutrition is lost in processing. Find grains in the Bulk Foods department. Tofu & Soy Soy products contain significant minerals and B vitamins and are a complete protein. Ripe soybeans are dried and processed to make tofu, which is located in the Dairy section. Unripened beans are harvested to produce edamame and are found either fresh in Produce or processed in Frozen Foods. 1 2 3 S p e l t = 1 1 g W ild rice = 7 g WANT TO EAT LESS MEAT BUT FEAR LOSS OF PROTEIN?
