One of the first things I tackle with all new clients is making sure they are eating enough protein.โฃ

Most women aren't eating enough protein and are consuming far too many processed carbohydrates.

A low protein, high sugar, highly processed food diet will leave you feeling tired, sluggish, HANGRY, and will ultimately contribute to weight gain and increased body fat.โฃ

Getting an adequate amount of protein is an essential piece to the fat loss puzzle. 

However, if you're not a fan of animal protein, it may feel pretty challenging for you to actually eat enough protein throughout the day.โฃ

While it may take a little more effort for you to hit your protein goal if you’re also avoiding animal-based protein sources, I’m here to tell you it is 100% possible!

  • Watch out for the highly processed carbs that contain protein. Avoid the vegan mac n cheeses out of a box, premade meals that are loaded with chemicals, and dairy-free yogurts that are loaded with sugar
  • Make sure you're supplementing with Vitamin B12 and Ironโฃ
  • Make sure you're getting plenty of Omega 3’s either through your food or a supplement โฃ
  • Make sure your overall nutrition plan is balanced with proper macro and micronutrients.โฃ

โฃIf you’re struggling to find alternate protein options, refer to my list above for some great alternatives . โฃโฃ

If you’re comfortable with eating eggs and dairy, you can get plenty of protein from yogurt (especially Greek yogurt), cottage cheese, and whey protein powders.โฃ

If you’re avoiding dairy, eggs, meats, and seafood, rely on high protein veggie burgers, plant-based protein powders, lentils, beans, and some of my other options above.โฃ
