Meat Substitutes for Vegetarians

January 10, 2011 at 11:40am

One-half cup of tofu (any type)

One-half cup of beans, lentils, or any legume

1-2 vegetarian or black bean burgers (made from textured vegetable protein)

2-4 ounces any vegetarian cheese, including soy cheese

2 vegetarian "sausage" links (great substitute for eggs!)

2 scoops vegan rice protein powder (great for smoothies, blend with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk and a fruit) for a quick 17-Day Diet vegetarian breakfast

Any type of vegetarian meat substitute made from textured vegetable protein (see package for serving size)

For dairy substitutes: 1 serving is 1 cup unsweetened soy milk, almond milk, or rice milk

For yogurt substitutes, it is fine to use soy milk yogurt


These subs will work for all cycles as meat-protein substitutions.
