High Protein Vegetarian Breakfast
If you are the one who prefers a quick on-the-go breakfast, these raw foods are awesome choices. Nuts, low-fat Greek plain yogurt, and tofu are the healthiest protein-rich items that can be included in breakfast. Think about incorporating one serving each of low-fact Greek yogurt and tofu into your breakfast meal. In addition, you can include two cups of your preferred greens with half a cup of blueberries, half cup of almond-milk, and one tbs of chia seeds.
For a cooked breakfast, you can try to tofu scramble, which gives you 18-grams of protein. You can add interesting veggies to your scramble- peppers and sauteed onions, and mix one ounce of graded-cheddar cheese if you want.
A cup of steamed brown rice has five grams of protein, whereas you can get 7 grams of protein through 2 slices of whole-wheat bread. You can prepare black bean tacos for lunch. Just divide half cup of steamed black beans among 2 blue corn tortillas that will give you approximately 17 grams of protein together. For filling, you can add grated carrots, tomatoes, and chopped spinach.
Protein at Dinner
Be it Meat eaters or vegetarians, they both just love quinoa because it has all the required amino acids, making it a rich in protein superfood. For dinner, rich in protein, just add one cup of quinoa (8 gms of protein) in one cup of red beans (beans will add extra 15gms protein to the meal). Saute it with onion, garlic and other fresh vegetables. Add pepper and salt. Some veggies also are good source of protein. One cup of boiled spinach and one cup of boiled broccoli provide about 5gms protien each. You may pair broccoli with brown rice for another dish. Saute one cup of broccoli and add it to half cup obrown-rice. Add salt and spices to taste.
