Spring Is Here!

The surest sign of spring arriving is… the infamous sore throat. Nothing some Ben&Jerry’s can’t fix, though Smile I’m also hyper-excited about the weekend because we are going to eat some real delicious food with good friends tomorrow.

Anyhow, I know that quite a few of you readers are following a vegetarian diet, and I have a (silly) question for you: what do you eat to make sure that you get enough protein and not too much carbs? People who exercise a lot tend to be wild about protein (chicken, chicken, chicken!!!) which, in my opinion, actually makes sense, but this protein madness doesn’t seem to go hand in hand with vegetarianism (unless you want to eat ten eggs a day). Are dairy and eggs the way to go, or are there other interesting options?

I had this strange revelation last night at about 1 a.m: there is nothing wrong with being a nice person, but you have to be nice to yourself, too. Living according to other people’s preferences and expectations just doesn’t work in the long haul, you end up hurting yourself.

Mieheni (innokkaana urheilijana) vinkkasi heraproteiniista, vehnänalkioista, pähkinöistä ja levätuotteista (spirulinat, yms). Mutta kun nuo eivät mielestäni ole oikeita ruokia ;) Minä tykkään tofu- ja soijatuotteista (ja juustot ovat aivan ehdoton...).

Miehen vinkki oli myös tämä sivusto: Siellä on se Eniten ja vähiten -kohta, josta saa suoraan valittua, että mitä tahtoo katsoa (vaikkapa parhaat proteiinilähteet lakto-ovovegetaristille...)

Satu, kiitos vinkeistä :) Ja tosiaan, juustoa ei voita mikään!!
