I am allergic to eggs, and due to my hypo-thyroid meds, I can't eat soy. So as I've tried to eat more vegetarian meals, I have to do a lot of replacements. I end up cooking vegan a lot because the recipes don't include eggs, but then I'm low on protein. I've tried adding beans to things, and I know vegetables have protein I'm not unaware of that fact, but my actual protein calories come out lower on days I'm eating more vegetarian meals since a lot of them use things for protein that I can't eat. Suggestions?
A friend stopped by with some recipes so I'm looking forward to trying those out, tho I do suspect I'll have to do a lot of substitutions. We'll see.
