Building a Balanced Breakfast

Breakfast should provide at least one quarter of the calories you need for the entire day. Most nutritionists agree that a good breakfast contains the following ingredients:

  • At least one serving of  fiber
  • At least one fruit and/or vegetable
  • Milk or another source of calcium
  • Protein, i.e., from meat, cheese or eggs
Health is beautiful.

Health is beautiful.

Protein for Vegetarians!
I was a vegetarian for 21 years, so I know what it’s like! It’s important to consume enough protein each day to maintain and/or build lean muscle. Remember, the more lean muscle you have on your frame, the faster your metabolism will be. Try to get between 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
Remember that although some foods do contain protein, not all of them are COMPLETE proteins. In other words, some foods are considered incomplete proteins if they are missing one of the essential amino acids. That’s why as a vegetarian, it is important to eat a wide variety of protein rich foods so as to get ALL of the 9 amino acids. These 9 amino acids include: tryptophan, threonine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine+cystine, phenylalanine+tyrosine, valine & histidine.
Good sources of protein for vegetarians:
Eggs
Greek Yogurt
Milk
Cheese
Most dairy products
Tofu
Black beans
Kidney beans
Most other legumes 
Almonds
Cashews
Most other nuts & nut butters
Soy products
There are many other options besides those I just listed, but do some research to find alternatives if these are not your favorites. Keep in mind that many of the “fake meat” products are highly processed. While it’s fine to eat these in moderation, try not to rely solely on them for your protein intake!
