Albeit meat and poultry are perhaps the most noted sources of protein for carnivores, vegetarians can achieve their protein requirements through dairy-based and plant-based foods.
Nutritionists recommend eating a diverse assortment of high-protein vegetarian nutriments daily to serve your body with a wide-range of amino acids.
1. Bake a few nuts on a cookie sheet until they start to toast.
2. Substitute the meat in tacos with beans or soy taco meat.
3. Scatter cubed or shredded American, feta, cheddar, jack, mozzarella, or provolone cheese into your salads, soups and stews. Heart healthy tip: Substitute low-fat versions of your favorite cheeses.
