Help a vegetarian going vegan get enough protein!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


I am a female (aspiring) bber; I have been training seriously for about a year and a half and don't plan on doing my first contest for another year and a half to two years at a minimum.


For my weight and training intensity I need to consume about 110-120g of protein per day.


Right now I'm an ovo-lacto vegetarian, so I've been getting my protein from cottage & ricotta cheese, eggs, egg whites, and whey protein. I do want to start cutting those out though and moving towards a vegan diet...but I don't know where to get protein. Here's the thing: I don't do well with soy. Like at all. What are some good sources of protein for me?


Thank you so much in advance!

Holy shit. I'm looking at it's wiki page and it even has b-vitamins in it.


Yes, pistachio is great. But here where I live pistachio is really expencive, and pepitas are all over the place, very cheap. And they still have better amino acid score: 136 (pistachio has 110) - not that it really matters much, but if pepitas are cheap, I choose them!

yes, I am pepitas addict
