You need protein to be healthy. Excess protein is generally bad, and is probably a bit worse if you have gout than it would be for the general population. But 17g isn’t a huge amount, especially if your diet otherwise wouldn’t contain enough of the specific proteins found in peas.
Bottom line: either you trust your nutritionist or you don’t.
