I've been a vegetarian ever since i was 14... Long time. But still haven't mastered how to get meatless protein. I have anemia so deff need to figure this out! Anybody have yummy suggestions?
Have you tried tofurky? Don't remember the name but, there are some shakes that are made of veggies and have protein as well. The Vitamin Shoppe has great products on soy protein as well.
Great post Starli B.
Samantha, aside from whey protein, you can also purchase plant based proteins such as brown rice protein, pea protein, and hemp protein powders to supplement in your nutrition. You can even find them with no sugar, which is ideal. Let me know if you have any questions!
The protein that I use is designed specifically for people who are skipping meals or need more nutrition in their diet. And it tastes like dessert! You can watch the videos and private message me or just click Join and you will find a lot more information www.90daypersonalmastery.com
My favorite is Pure Green Protein. Good consistency and flavor. Each serving is 20 g of protein and delivers 15 mG of iron as well. Used to use vega protein powders ( which r veg). They r well regarded but their consistency was always too thick for me.
If you have been veg for awhile, your diet probably has good sources of veg protein, but if not, try increasing your protein thru your food intake as well. Protein sources we like to mix in around here : seiten, tempeh, lentils, beans and nuts.
So does that mean u dont eat eggs? I was told theres a lot of protien in those. Wat do i no tho i eat anything that fills my belly lol
Hi Sam, try weekly b-12 shots, beet juicing, tomatoes for your anemia and make sure you do your research on GMO's since you are limiting your diet from animal nutrients make sure what you do eat is actually REAL and not made as a science experiment messing with the DNA of your food. Good luck there are many healthy vegetarians that manage to have balance in their diet without any deficiency issues.
Soy protein!!!! Soy beans and for your anemia get iron! Anemia is due to your blood being low in iron
Quinoa is a complete protein. Use it in place of other grains. Cooks the same as rice.
Quinoa can be awesome. I tried this receipe with golden quinoa instead of black. Wow - made it 2X in one week it tasted so good! http://www.sassyradish.com/2011/11/quinoa-with-brussels-sprouts-and-pumpkin/
Chia seeds! They have four times the amount of protein than salmon!!
There is big problems for the vegetarians that they don't like to eat most of the protein foods which come from the animal.
For the vegetarians there are various veggies protein foods which they can use for their muscles building purposes.
They can eat green vegetables, green beans, nuts, protein shakes etc for getting the natural protein.
