Well, it’s become pretty clear that being a vegetarian doesn’t automatically translate into eating healthy. For example, there isn’t any meat in beer and cheese pizza, thank God. Who knew? I can already tell that this sort of eating is going to go into stages, from the absence of meat to carb loading to something else resembling more of a diet, which I hate. I sure do love carbs as much as I love meat.
With that being said, my biggest cause for concern is how to supplement my loss of protein intake. I’ve heard that stuff is pretty important. For now, I’m adding protein to my morning shakes and trying to add as much dairy to my diet as possible, but I’m going to need more throughout the day. More importantly, I suppose, is where will I find it out at restaurants? It looks as if my main sources of vegetarian protein are in beans and soy products like tofu. Yummy. . .
Any other ideas?
