Vege-atari-anism or in my case......

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Ok I am taking on the way of non meat eater person. There are so many forms of atarianism and I gathered I was considered a pescatarian. Because I still choose to eat fish. But will opt for legumes, and tofu, and other forms of protein.
One thing I am seeing, is it's hard to get the needed protein in. So my point, is, are any of my co Sparkies in this catagory? And can you share some of the things you eat. There is a pita sandwich I found in Fit for life, its all vegetable, and it is sooooooo delicious, but it calls for pickle, which is deadly for someone like me, because of the huge amount of sodium. Anyway, I would appreciate some ideas! MJ

    I do eat meat, but in moderation, usually about 3 times a week. To meet my protein needs I rely on all kinds of nuts, yogurt, cheese, beans and protein bars/shakes. One of my favorite protein bars is Balance (15 grams). Odwalla also makes a good tasting bar with, I think, 14 grams.

    Rice and beans, quinoa and tofu, and don't forget EGGS! Be sure you get all of your aminos with every meal and you should be okay.

    I too eat no meat and still consume up to 100 grams of protein every day. I do however eat eggs and dairy. My staples include: brown rice, quinoa, wholewheat pasta, Ezekiel bread, cottage cheese, regular cheese, Greek yogurt and beans of all sorts.

    I understand what you're saying and I also have a hard time getting all the protein in and staying within range. I have been trying different protein bars on days that I'm really low.

    Sweetie, I eat no meat whatsoever anymore-I don't like the stuff.

    Take a look at my Nutrition Tracker. I eat well over 85 gms of protein a day without meat and most days do 100gms or more.
