I would love to try some of the different grains, but don't have recipes for them. For instance. I am not supposed to eat bread, potatoes, rice or pasta, nor am I supposed to have any dairy products - Alergies and Diabeties. When I remove these items from my diet my blood sugars remain constanat without medicine. Unfortunately I am not sure how to use Spelt, or any other flours to make things I can eat and I am not sure whether they would affect me the same way that wheat does. Has anyone got any ideas?
Since I love cheese, getting protein is easier, Cottage Cheese, Sargento Reduced Fat Colby-Jack Sticks(33%less fat-25% fewer calories) 60 calories per stick, also yogurt w/ fruit has protein & some have o% fat, also Publix Supermarket Deli has fresh ground Peanut Butter, from roasted peanuts that they roast themselves, loaded with protein & the good oil is included, Hummas made from beans, that you put on crackers or Pita Bread, comes in different flavors & naturaly had protein from the beans, some people use it in place of mayonaise as a spread on sandwiches w/ oven roasted, mesquite, & smoked Turkey slices or shaved is 97% fat free,made by Oscar Mayer, & so is their ham slices in the refrigerated sandwich meats, low in calories if you like meat, but the rest is vegetarian.

This was a good article, am alway looking for ways to get protein
Oh, dear. That link seems to be gone. Ideas for vegetarian protein that is not soy: Nutritional yeast, lentils, beans, nuts, gluten, seitan, protein powder. You can get a lot of gluten products from Asian grocery stores.
As far as soya is concerned, for every positive study done on soy and thyroid, there's one negative and the data is basically inconclusive. Most of the hoopla is the effects on women who are sensitive to estrogen, in which case, there are TONS of food and things to avoid.

Soy, as we are served in this country, has been proven to damage the thyroid. Thanks, but I'll stick to my roasts!

I have gained and lost over 100 lbs on a veg diet - there is no meat in candy bars!
