Hi, I have been eating less and less meat, and I am sure that I want to become a vegetarian.

I know that lots of people who dont eat meat eat nuts instead for protein, but I am deathly allergic to nuts...where else can I get that protein

due to my bmi i need about 43 grams of protien a day, and thats being careful.

most americans get like twice that much, its crazy!

on the nutrition lables it shows you how much is in everything and blah, just look at that

nuts are in no way the only source of protien (hate that myth) just do a little research on foods, find out the amounts, your needs, and then try to fit enough in.

Its actually hard to be deficient in protien as its in most foods including fruit and veg and starchy foods like rice, bread and potatos, so you dont actually need to eat that much more to stay healthy. Most people eat too much protien which can cause kidney damage amongst other things.



I dont eat many nuts apart from brazil nuts. Other sources are beans (including baked beans, kidney beans, haricot beans, chickpeas, lentils and just about any bean that you can think of). Soya products like tofu, soya cheese, milk and yoghurts (which are also a good source of calcium especially if they are fortified), yeast pates, and most meat alternatives that you can buy.



If you still eat dairy and eggs there is of course eggs, milk, cheese, yoghurt and quorn products (dont know if they have that in the US), but its for sale in basically every UK supermarket. Like meat, these are all pretty high in saturated fat though (apart from maybe quorn which is made from fungi, but uses egg as a binder).
