    Default Vegetarian protein that is not soya

    I'm a vegetarian and I have been looking for an efficient protein supplement, but so far soya seems to be the only thing, that is rich in protein enough to replace meat. I eat milk products and eggs, but on my surprise none of them contain as much protein as soya does. I know it's not healthy to eat soya all the time though, I need something else to have balanced diet, but I haven't been able to find anything. I think I have protein deficiency and I need to eat more of it, but I can't eat soy products all the time. Any tips?

    What about pea protein or rice protein? I use Beyond Meat products frequently, the chicken products have some soy but the first ingredient is pea protein. I haven't had a bad product from them yet. I should add I'm not a vegetarian or a vegan, I just want less meat/more plant based meals in my diet overall. I also tried a chickpea based pasta called Banza, it's very good.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    mmm... hemp seeds, lentils, seitan, nutritional yeast, oats, quinoa, nuts, amaranth... there are a bunch of sources...

    maybe just do a google search for complete proteins...

    Are you against insect protien? I was never sure if vegitarians consider crickets to be meat or not.

    oh yeah, wild rice has a fair amount... the long brown rice has some, but wild rice has more...

    people mentioned peas, but yeah... green peas are good for it also...

    You can also try making (or buying, if you prefer) things out of plant protein sources like hummus, lemon tahini dressing, nut butters, etc. It's good to get a combo of stuff throughout the day, so your protein content (and other daily nutrients) will add up.

    Additionally, you can try an app like Cronometer to see if you're getting enough throughout the day. Good luck.

    You have to eat about 20 servings of soy for it to become unhealthy. That's an outrageous amount that surpasses the hungriest traditional Asian.

    Tempeh and edamame are variations on tofu.

    But if you are opposed to soy for whatever reason, you can always eat nuts - walnuts, cashews, etc and seeds sunflower, flax. One of the reasons that vegans are sometimes healthier than vegetarians is because we get this. You should eat a variety of nuts and seeds, which have various nutritional benefits, not just cheese and eggs as a replacement for meat.


    Various beans, lentils, and peas are obviously going to help.

    Vital wheat gluten or seitan is a great source of protein if you aren't one of the 1 whole percent of the human population that in reality is allergic to gluten without bullshitting.

    Broccoli, spinach and oatmeal might serve you if you are that extremely orthorexic, but yes they have protein!!!!1111

    If you think you need more protein than Kendrick Farris, I think you are wrong.

    I'm an omnivore, but I actually think seitan (made from wheat gluten) is really good.
