Years ago, a book titled 'Diet For A Samll Planet' was published. It's focus was how to eat as a vegetarian/vegan and still have the correct balance of foods. One main one is rice and beans, which when eaten together make a whole protein. She also published a recipe book titled the same. It is excellent for understanding the nutritional balances needed when eating as a vegetarian. Many recipes are gluten free.

I am gluten and dairy free. I found a great cookbook called The Gluten Free Vegan which has many wonderful recipes that might help you manage the protein piece.

Fluid retention is commonly seen in malnourished people whose protein consumption is very, very low. I doubt you are in that nutritional category (I hope you're not!), so you might check with your doctor about this. Another suggestion is nutritional yeast. It is a favorite of vegans and adds essential amino acids as well as B-vitamins. It also gives a cheesy taste to foods.

Can you eat almond butter? Also, I make smoothies with rice protein. Someone was also mentioning powdered pea protein. I also like garbanzo beans and hummus. Seeds such as sunflower seeds and flax seeds would also have some protein in them.

You mentioned fluid retention due to protein lack. I have not heard of that releationship before. Could you (or anyone) explain the cause and effect relationship between "why" low protein levels would cause fluid retention? I may have the same process going on, and I would be very interested. Thank you.

I do try protein "combinations" such as corn and beans, nuts and brown rice, quinoa with veggies or fruit, etc. I use dairy very sparingly, but I do use it since I seem to be sensitive to soy.

Sunshine burgers are gluten free, and Amy's has one GF veggie burger, but you have to read the label carefully to get the right one (I forget which one it is). There are also a couple books dealing with GF and Vegetarian. One is "Vegetarian Cooking Without (recipes free from added gluten, sugar, yeast, dairy products, meat, fish, saturated fat)" by Barbara Cousins. I haven't tried any of the recipes, but did buy it for my support group's library. Check Amazon.com for GF & Vegetarian books.

Chick peas can be used to make hummus. Also, brown rice has protein, as does peanut butter.

If you are OL Vegetarian, you can use Whey protein powders, otherwise you can buy soy protein powders.

Hope this is some help.

Hello,

I'm vegetarian and recently diagnosed with CD. I'm struggling. I'm having a hard time finding those protein sources (besides beans). I've had good luck at Trader Joes with finding staple stuff. I eat a lot of veggies and fruit, but things to grab and go and the protein is killing me (I relied on wheat meat and fake meat substitutes for meal time with my non- veggie husband)
So, I'm stuck and grappling with how and what to eat now. I want to feel healthy, but have noticed I'm retaining fluid in my legs and I think it's from lack of protein (which has happenned before). I'm going to the doctor's this month for the fluid retention and a general health check. I know my doc will not be able to address my nutrition issues in the way I hope.
So, does anyone have any ideas?

Oh, I see the RD/nutritionist on 6/3 and will discuss with her as well.

Thank you
