Start by reading the protein without soy discussion thread: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
The good news is every plant contains protein. So if you make yourself meals containing a mix of legumes, veggies, whole grains (brown rice, millet, corn, oats, etc) that are gluten free and fruits that you enjoy, you will get plenty of protein in your diet. There are thousands of veggies out there so you can even eliminate those that you don't like. Protein is overemphasized in our culture and is not as important or as difficult to get in a vegan/vegetarian diet as people think. Just make good food that you like and that is colorful and healthy that covers the 4 food groups above every day and you will be fine. (You cannot live on french fries and crackers and be okay but of course you knew that.) The only thing you MAY need to supplement is B12 and maybe Vit D if you live in the Northern part of the world where you do not get sun every day.
I know soy won't work, but I use a lot of other bean varieties, including red, kidney, pinto, great northern, chick peas. I make three (or two, if my cupboard is getting low) bean pasta salad, vegetarian chili, bean burritos. How about starting out making a simple classic hummus? The main ingredient, chick peas or garbanzos, whichever name you prefer, are a very good vegetable protein source, among other things.
for a good recipe. I would adjust the recipe to taste, specially where the garlic and tahini (sesame butter) are concerned.
So, I'm allergic to:
And...carrots. I guess my body just wanted to throw a random allergy in there.
Anyway, I'm not totally savvy with protein sources that aren't soy based, besides hemp and hemp is not easy to come by here.
Besides that, I'd like some recipes that don't contain Gluten, Soy, carrots, onions, squash, peppers, eggplant or beets.
I'm not allergic to some of those, but the taste and/or textures....no. If I bite into an onion or pepper, it's game over.
