Busy vegetarian needs help!


 
I recently went vegetarian and I’m kinda busy, so I do not have lots of time to cook.  I eat mostly scrambled eggs and veggie burgers from the freezer.  I want to find quick vegetarian recipes that are actually healthy!

 

When it comes to vegetarianism, it’s way important to make sure you get all the vitamins and nutrients your bod needs to stay healthy.  Add a busy schedule on top of that, and it can get a little tough. 

 

For lunchtime, right in the middle of your hectic day, sandwiches and salads may become your BFFS.  Throw all your fave veggies and some hummus on whole grain bread for a super quick lunch on the go.  Got a little more time?  Toss together an awesome salad.  Opt for spring mix or spinach leaves over iceberg lettuce, which is made up mostly of water and SO not nutritious.  Throw on whatever you want and don’t be afraid to mix things up.  I love fruit and nuts on mine.  (Try craisins and pinenuts, or pears and candied walnuts, yum!)

 

When it comes to dinner, spend just a little more time making sure you include all the healthy good stuff in your meal.  Since you eat eggs, you’re a lacto-vegetarian (no animal meat, but yes to eggs and milk).  This makes it a bit easier to get the calcium and protein your body craves.  But, it wouldn’t hurt to work in foods that are high in protein, like tofu, nuts, beans, lentils and other soy products.  Another important nutrient is iron, which you can find in spinach, beets and dried beans.  For ideas on specific recipes, check out GL’s healthy recipes or ask other vegetarians you know to spill the beans about their fave dishes.

 

To make sure you’re being healthy about it, talk to your doc or a nutritionist about diet plans and multivitamins.  Think about ‘em as a safety check for your healthy ways.  Your bod is still growing, so you gotta make sure it’s getting the fuel it needs!
