Meatless Mondays. Fish Friendly Fridays.
Many of us are slowly cutting meat out of our diets. Whether that’s by deliberate choice, by taste, or by the sheer popularity of the meatless fad, more and more of us (myself included) are wracking our brains to come up with healthy, non carb-overload-y solutions to the meat free dinner.
But how can we make sure our new diet isn’t leaving our bodies hungry for energy-fueling protein?
When I first cut down my red meat intake, I was tired all the time. It took me a few weeks to realize that I had been replacing all of the protein in my life with carbs. Oatmeal for breakfast, hummus & pita for lunch, pasta for dinner. This carb-heavy diet left me with erratic energy: peaks of high energy right after eating and lethargic crashes a few hours later.
I had to find a solution. A protein replacement.
And after a bit of research, here’s what I found. 6 Delicious & Nutritious vegetarian protein replacements! Click the images for easy recipe ideas.
