Protein sources for vegetarians
I’ve recently turned vegetarian and everyone seems to be worried that I’m not getting enough protein. What are some good sources of vegetarian protein? Shaun.
Hi Shaun. Choosing a goodquality vegetarian diet (there are poor-nutritional-quality vegetarian diets) means the majority of your diet is plantbased, which is fantastic. Here are some great vegetarian sources of protein: you with protein, too. They can be prepared and eaten in similar ways to traditional grains such as oats and rice.
Eggs – some vegetarians still consume eggs, which are a great source of biologically available protein.
No matter what I eat I often find myself with reflux and heartburn. What’s the best way to deal with this? Thank you, Craig.
