Top sources of Veggie protein
David Lischuk's profile photo
I lied; I couldn't not do the other calculations:

Cauliflower (raw): 2% protein
Spinach (raw): 3% protein
Kale (raw): 3% protein
Broccoli (raw): 3% protein
Mushrooms (shiitake, as shown, cooked w/o salt): 1% protein
Cucumber (with peel, raw):  0% (i.e. < 0.1 g per serving)
Green pepper (raw): 1%
Cabbage (red, raw): 1%

That took me 5 minutes. If someone actually relied on your post to figure out their macronutrient intake, they would be dangerously inaccurate. I mean c'mon, most of these aren't even off by any actual ratio, they're just made up.
