High-protein vegetarian foods:
*Eggs (if you eat dairy from animals)
*Milk (they have lactose-free milk)
*Whole Wheat foods (pasta/bread)
Protein is protein, body doesn't care as long as you get enough to maintain your weight (if that's the goal). If you want to get technical about it however, dairy products are all 80-90% Casein protein. This means the protein is bonded to calcium or phosphorous. Calcium caseinate is commonly found in milk and yogurt, and is a very slow-digesting protein meaning it keeps you fuller longer. Protein from broccoli and other things like rice are fast-digesting meaning they attach to amino acids like lysine, aspartate and others to metabolize in the body.
All plant foods have some protein. Apples are the lowest with only a trace of protein and bananas are not much better with about 1/2 % of their calories coming from protein. If you ate nothing but apples and bananas chances are you wouldn't get enough protein. Legumes or pulses are the richest source of protein in the vegetarian diet. Grains have less but are still a good source. Vegetables and even most fruit contribute a bit more. Unless you are starving yourself or trying to live on nothing but fruit it is difficult not to get enough protein.
You want to get complete proteins, not incomplete. Things like beans are incomplete protein, but they do have protein still. And it depends on what kind of vegetarian, some only eat dairy, some eat eggs, some dont eat anything related to the animal. What kind are you talking about?
see i don't eat meat and see thing that sucks is im lactose so i really dont have dairy that much. i eat alot of fruits and vegs plus salads. im not a vegan i just want to find out beside fruits and vegs what else can you eat?
I eat tofu and milk products also beans nuts and peas are great sources of protein. Tell your doctor you want to become one before doing so incase you have a health problem that may require a special vegeterian diet.
see i use to be a vegan for like 4yrs and now im just doing vegetarian im look for actual food to eat. instead of salads and just fruit u kno? by the way thanks u for this tip
Beans, lentils, tofu, some sorts of nuts, some milk products if your diet allows them...
A person that doesn't eat animals and animal by products are vegans not vegeterians.
I eat tofu a lot milk products i cant eat cause im lactose. what about soy products?
Not a problem.
