Following a vegetarian diet shouldn’t be painful, boring, or unfulfilling. Actually, it should be the other way around!
If you have decided to ditch meat, I’m sure you have a pretty legit reason. Maybe you want to improve your digestion and live a healthier life, maybe you have a medical reason or you just like to experiment with different things, including your diet.
All of these are valid reasons and, regardless of which one is yours, I appreciate you trying to improve your life! Now I must tell you that a vegetarian diet is easier to follow now than it was years ago. You have so many options now for meat-free dishes and even dairy-free alternatives in case you want to!
But there are some things you have to keep in mind when it comes to your diet. As much as I like to experiment with different foods, produce, and diets, I must warn you that you must always be careful about your nutrient intake. Especially proteins in case you’re not eating meat anymore!
But don’t worry, I’m here to help. This list of more than 10 recipes is dedicated to all those of you who are looking to learn about protein sources. These meat-free high protein meals have been collected from all around the internet: some of my best recipes on this blog that fit the description (no meat plus lots of protein) plus some other yummy and healthy recipes from some of my favorite food bloggers (which I definitely recommend you follow, of course).
You’ll see various meat-free protein sources in the recipes below: eggs, green peas, tofu, hemp seeds, lentils, red beans, and more! I tried to include some common, super accessible ingredients that are rich in protein such as peas and tofu, and some more eccentric ones as well such as the hemp seeds or amaranth.
