Hi, everybody. I'm new to the group, and new to being vegetarian. It's been about a month. I suppose I could have joined one of the "I'm definitely veg" groups, but I had a question about transitioning, and this seemed like a better place to ask.
I'm having trouble with protein. I try, I really do. I eat pulses and soy mince and I've learned to make seitan. I love them all. I drink a lot of milk, and eat cheese in moderation. I'm still only getting 40-55 grams of protein in a day, on average, while sparkpeople keeps suggesting 60 grams minimum. I haven't eaten much meat for a long time, even before I made The Leap.
I'm getting kind of concerned.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can improve things? Or even just some reassurance that I should keep trying?
Arma virumque cano.
