Not sure how to diss some of of the meat?

Posted on 19 November, 2013 at 13:33 Comments comments (1)













There have been numerous great studies recently touting a more plant-based diet.  Why?  More protection against heart disease, cancer, diabetes, to name a few. 

 Not sure how to ditch that steak or chicken just yet? Oh, what to do????   

 Here are some vegetarian “meat” equivalents in protein  
  
Examples of vegan/vegetarian choices in the protein group:  

½ cup cooked beans (lentils, black beans, kidney beans, lentils, peas, black eyed peas, split peas, chickpeas, lima beans, navy beans)
½ cup edamame 
1/3 cup hummus
2 oz. soy based “beef” crumbles
15 almonds
2 Tbsp. peanut butter or Nutella
14 Walnut halves
1/8 cup pumpkin or sunflower seeds
3 (2 inch round patties) falafel
3 oz. veggie burger
 ½ cup vegetarian refried beans 
¾ oz. unsalted soy nuts
¾ cup tempeh
4 oz. (1/2cup) tofu 

   A protein product, to be a good source should contain at least 7 grams of protein per serving.   As you can see, there are many many choices and options in the plant based world!     

Also, please note that I have many vegan/vegetarian recipes posted on my blog and I will be adding more!!!
