A pertinent question tht occurs to me when i start falling short of the strength and recovery during and after the workout or fights.

Are the veggie source of proteins at par with the non-vegetarian ones? If not then can it be replaced by increased portions...

Also please suggest the best source of vegetarian proteins.

Thankyou

Lentils are amazing! And as others have mentioned, beans, quinoa, seeds, tofu, tempeh, seitan, nuts etc. are all good protein sources.

No problem. If you want any recipe suggestions just message me. I've been a vegetarian for almost a year so I've accumulated many favorite recipes.

Not sure if this helps but there are vegetarian protein powders. I would think that would be the best route to go. If you're asking about protein powders to begin with, however, I have no idea. I've only tried one and can't even remember the name of it lol. Sorry

How vegetarian are you? Eggs? Fish? Milk & cheese... Cottage cheese? All are good protein sources.
Many protein powders are vegetarian, but use dairy(whey) . I use a raw vegan product called Sun Warrior.

Rice and beans. I think brown rice has more protein than white... Nuts & seeds (but more fat than protein), wheat gluten (seitan) can be purchased or made from flour and water. Fermented soy (tempeh). There are soy yogurts and cheeses. Chia seeds.

I imagine Google would be a good resource for "vegan (or vegetarian) protein sources"

Nuts and seeds are the best way, but don't put tones of them on your meal as they are quite high saturated fat. I just sprinkle them over my salads.

First off, Vegetarian or Vegan? There is a difference. If you do use a source of protein powder let me make a suggestion. I am lactose intolerant so no dairy for me. I use whey protein powder I get at Walmart, I use as 2 meal replacements a day so a container lasts 2 weeks. My mixer, water taste lie shat. So I use 8 oz of Unsweetened Almond Milk.
