I'm a vegan and I love Tempeh for protein. It's the main "meat" substitutes on the rare occasion I use them. It is made from fermented soybeans. 3oz has about 160 calories, 15 g of protein, 9 grams of carbs and very little fat. It is delicious.
I have been a vegetarian for nearly 7 years. No meat or fish at all. Now that I am watching all my food intakes, I am having trouble getting enough protein without overdoing it on the carbs and fat. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can eat without upping the carbs and fat? I should have this down by now, but I don't.
