WHEW... that's a lot of typing! Here are some side notes about the plan
1. thank you to Betty Crocker "Vegetarian Cooking" & "Almost Vegetarian" by Shaw for recipes and inspiration

2. TEA INFO: I buy all my tea from TEAVANA
Breakfast: "Sweet Oolong Revolution": speeds up metabolism and helps with digestion
Lunch: "Weight-to-Go" pu-erh: weight loss tea: helps increase metabolism and suppress hunger
Evening: "Shanghai Orchid"white tea: relaxing, breaks down fat in body

3. One concern I had was not getting enough protein. I think you'll find that with the inclusion of eggs, milk, seafood, and occasionally a protein powder or 2, there is an adequate of protein in this diet. It contains approximately 20% each day.

4. Meal plan was based on a 1500 calorie diet for active women trying to lose weight: uses the following food group serving amounts.
Breads: 5-6 (2.5-3c)
Fruits: 5 servings (2.5 cups)
Vegetables: 3-4 cups
Milk: 2 cups
Protein: 3 (5-6 oz)
Fats: 3 (3 T-ish)

Anyways- I hope this helps you get an idea of how I will be changing my diet. This is a 2 week plan that will be adapted, hopefully over my lifetime. It's my 1st time trying the semi-vegetarian life, and I know I will be making many changes along the way. Those of you who follow a vegetarian life, I'm open to ANY & ALL suggestions!

Have a great weekend!

    Looks good! I was a vegetarian for 13 years, so I know a thing or two about protein (or lack thereof). Don't forget about beans & tofu - they are a great, low-cal, nutritious source of protein. I still put beans in everything (salads, spaghetti sauces, etc). I guess old habits die hard :) Hummus and greek yogurt are 2 other things that are high protein. Good luck - your plan looks great!!
