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.
