does anyone know where i can get an ovo-lacto vegetarian meal plan?<br><br><br><br>
i'm new at this and my parents think i'm not eating right, which i do have to admit, i'm kind of not. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
hmmm, maybe i could just check out the "what you ate today" thread and see what people eat during the day and at night...<br><br><br><br>
but if you could help with the meal plan, i would greatly appreciate it *smiles*

Don´t take a shortcut; e.g. eating after a plan/timetable somebody put down for you.<br><br>
Do some reading as on the verweb under nutrition ( <a href="http://www.vegweb.com/nutrition/" target="_blank">http://www.vegweb.com/nutrition/</a> ) and create a plan suitable for yourself. Maybe you acquire so much knowledge that your parents are happy with what you´re doing.

You can also try recording what you're eating on fitday.com (it's free) to ensure that you're getting enough calories, fat, protein, vitamins, etc.<br><br><br><br>
Oh, and the Vegetarian Food Pyramid (<a href="http://www.vegsource.com/nutrition/pyramid.htm" target="_blank">http://www.vegsource.com/nutrition/pyramid.htm</a>) is a good resource. If you're a teenager (it sounds like it from references to your parents) you'll want to be on the high end of servings.

Read, read, read! Go to the library and check out books on vegetarian foods/meals. That's where I initially got all of my information (didn't have access to the web back then) and I can honestly say that I know more about nutritian than the average American omni. Don't think of it as studying...think of it as exploring all your new possibilities. I've tried sooo many new, tasty and nutritious foods and since I became a vegetarian---being an omni had really limited me. Have fun with it!

The book "Diet for a Small Planet" is supposed to be great. I had a copy years ago, but just spoke with a vegan friend of mine who said it rocks and is basically the Veggie Bible, so I may get another copy.

by the looks of this it doesn't look too promising that there are any plans around - but could i ask as well cuz i'm in a similar position if there are any vegan plans around too? if you don't mind me contributing to your thread, Taraelf <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Diet for a Small Planet is Frances Moore Lappe's... what I mostly remember about it is that she based it on protien combining or something that got a lot of slack and was proven unnecessary. There's a lot of mixed reviews for it <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2FASIN%2F0345321200%2Fqid%3D1059020102%2Fsr%3D2-1%2Fref%3Dsr_2_1%2F002-7007920-2140853" target="_blank">at amazon</a>.
