Hi Ma’am, I’m 18yrs old and a male. I want to maximize my protein intake and proper proportions of nutrients. I wish you to tell me how to get the maximum protein from fruits and veggies, so that this will lay a good foundation for my whole life.

Congratulations on your interest in life-long nutrition! Beans and nuts are the best vegetable sources of protein; most fruit are not good sources. Variety and moderation are essential for good nutrition. You can create a customized diet for yourself at mypyramid.gov that will provide the recommended intake of all nutrients including protein. Good luck!
