Yes, plants has a lot of proteins. so much so that all the gentle giants like cows, elephants, girraffes horses, etc... derived all their enormous muscles from plants and nothing else. Because they are full of proteins so a vegan should not be too greedy as to pick out all the plants that has the highest protein contents to eat all the time. Beans and nuts should not be over eaten due to the super high protein contents, as according to John McDougall, M.D. Eat them in moderation, not in excess.

Virtually all plants has proteins in higher percentages than the human body needs as long as it is eaten to an amount that satisfies an individual's caloric requirement. That is, they all have proteins in excess of the 5% that humans need.

Further more, there used to be a myth that said one needs to combine different veggies together to get all of the eight essential amino acids. As Dr. John McDougall explained from past scientific experiements, this myth is dead wrong, but sadly even vegetarians and vegans are still thinking that they need to combine foods. Dr. McDougall explained that every "single" plant species already contains all of the 8 essential amino acids and all of the non-essential amino acids, in an amount far greater than what the human body needs, when eaten to an amount that satisfies the individual's caloric requirement.
So basically, be vegan and just eat whatever plants that you feel like eating at any particular time. There is absolutely no need to combine a set variety of plants.

Please tell as many others about this fact as possible so that we could send this myth back to where it belongs. Because as long as this myth carries on, the meat industry and the many confused medical doctors who are worshippers of the slaughter industry, will use this myth to scare people away from the healthy low fat, whole food vegan diet; making them mistankenly thinking that vegan meals are such a fuss to prepare.
