Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh,

Does anyone know of any good meat substitutes that I can buy with protien. I know you can get veggie mince etc, does anyone know where to get some online?

Thanks

If you live in Canada you can buy yves soy products.

Only food I'll ever buy online is this stuff haha. It's the best for vegetarians (and for those who can't eat gluten stuff). It has a really high protein content and has almost all the essential amino acids we need to build our muscles.

It tastes just like rice and low in fat. It's perfect.

How do you eat it?

Can you have dehi and karhi (dahl) with it?

Try Tofu. You can buy it plain (like a slab of paneer but much softer and bigger) and then just drain it and you can marinate it or just fry it and add it to curries, stir fries, salad, or you can scramble it and make a bhurji type sabji.

You can also buy marinated tofu pieces which are also nice. Generally, I find tofu quite bland so you have to add quite a lot of spices/veggies to make it taste good.

You can find it here http://www.cauldronfoods.co.uk/our-range/tofu and it's available in most UK supermarkets.

Yes sir I usually eat it with chollay lol.

I'm going to also go to the local farmers market next week to get raw milk. I'm going to need to get more protein intake even though I'm doing alright right now. As you gain muscle and progress in working out/ lifting need to increase protein intake to gain and maintain.

Doesn't saag has protein in it?

How about those Quorn products?

I was looking to incorporate tofu into my diet, but apparently it contributes to bloating of the tidh, and if someone wants to get their stomach sorted out I imagine it would be a bit demoralising to think you aren't improving wnen in-fact it's the tofu that's letting you down. I do need something in the protein department apart from cottage cheese though.

Beans, lentils, hoummus, soy etc are all good sources of protein. I've not heard much about tofu causing bloating, but maybe a little bit of everything is ok in moderation. The toughest thing about cutting out entire food groups is making sure you're still getting all the right vitamins/minerals, which is hard for vegetarians, and even harder for vegetarians who are looking to lose/control their weight.

Seitan also know as Gluten Chicken/Pork/beef etc (but vege) I find is good and high in protein... its a wheat product you can find from chinese stores if you have one near you.

Bananas, Nuts, Soft Cheese (low in fat but high in protein), Asparagus, ... and Oats with low fat milk!

Quinoa is good choice, high in protien, many recipes

apart from treating it as rice, it can be mixed with vegetable salad - tomato, cucumber, spinach, onion, bell peppers, turnip, brocolli, carrots, lettuce, etc and get olive oil and lemon for dressing

or as a fruit salad - quinoa + mango + strawberry etc, try different combinations

or quinoa + boiled black chick peas, or beans as salad......

and make sure not to over boil the quinoa
