Hi everyone. This looks like such a great board, and I'm looking forward to learning a lot here. I've become a vegetarian quite by accident and really know very little about it. My problem right now is getting enough protein into my diet. I've lost a tremendous amount of weight and my hair is falling out by the handfuls due to surgery and lack of nutrition.

I don't have much to contribute at this point so I'll be lurking a lot. I would like to share my favorite meal with you though.

cooked whole wheat orzo

blanched tomatos, skinned or a can of diced tomato's with juice

juice of one lemon

2-3 grated cloves of garlic

a few liberal dashes of EVOO

cubed Feta cheese.

Just mix it all together and make it as soupy as you want. Yum!
