TOP 5 VEGETARIAN PROTEIN RICH FOOD – NO MEAT DIET

Hi folks..! I know many of you love to exercise and search how to have the proper mix of carbs, fats, and proteins in your diet. Every nutrient is easy to obtain in desired quantities other than protein. For those who eat meat, pork, and fishes this is a rather easier task as these things taste good and they are high protein food, that too of high quality. The problem now is with those who don’t eat meat. How do they get the desired protein amount? Well I will solve this problem of yours today 🙂 . For all of you to know, we need 0.8gm-1.5gm\kg of body weight of protein that depending on our routine.  Hmmm… well let me start then… when I finish you will have real good options for a protein rich meat free diet.

1 COTTAGE CHEESE:

Well to begin with the best and the most known option is cottage cheese or paneer (as many of us would know.) This is a great protein rich food with nearly 18.5 grams of protein per 100 grams. The only problem that I have with it is that, it has an additional burden of fats that comes with it. Well if you are not taking in fats from other sources than it would not be a cause of much concern.

HOW TO HAVE IT?

Well I would suggest, have it raw, even that tastes good. But nevertheless if you want it cooked you can always do that and make delicious dishes with it. According to me it’s a must have, as it gives you much protein even if consumed in small amount.

2 VEGETABLE:

No matter how much you hate green vegetables, always remember you have every reason to love them. Not just because they are healthy but also because they give you huge protein. They give you more protein than meat beef or eggs.  Shocking….! isn’t it? 🙂

HOW TO HAVE IT?

Eating them raw isn’t really an option 🙂 . Cook it and have it, else you might stop having it from day two and if some of you are maniacs like me and can have some of them raw nothing better than that 😉 .

3 MILK

Well nothing is better than 2-3 glasses of milk every day, it has almost every nutrient that your body wants. This fulfills the overall need of your body. Plus it is a good source of protein. I have included it in the list because we can have it in huge quantities with all the variants it’s available in; you can avoid fats by going for the lite milk as offered by mother dairy.

HOW TO HAVE IT?

Well depends on your taste….! Mix some sugar and have it or have it neat. Or mix some supplement to add to the taste and protein content. All your wish 🙂 .

4 PULSES:

From grams to peas, from lentils to soya. All these are great sources of protein. A must in one’s diet, and what is great is that they can be had in so many different ways and everyday a new type of pulse can be eaten. So many options….!

HOW TO HAVE IT?

You can have it cooked, boiled or just raw keeping them soaked in water overnight, and try different kinds of dishes. One can even try various types of dishes.

5 ALMONDS:

They are an excellent source of protein and having 15-20 almonds a day can fulfill your daily nutrient requirements. They not only have a good amount of protein but also fiber and heart healthy fats. One almond contains 0.25 grams of protein. The reason I have put it here is that it not just gives you protein but fulfills other needs as well by providing you with an essential type of protein.

HOW TO HAVE IT?

Dip it in water overnight and have next day. Or you can even have it raw but that might cause body heating.

Well this will be it for now folks. And now when people say, oh you are a veggie ??? how do you fulfill your daily protein requirements. Just laugh and tell them, I do it easily…! 😉
