Tip #7 Eat beans or tofu instead of meat.
Additional sources of dietary protein are whole grains, nuts, seeds, nut butters, tempeh and protein powders. Not everyone needs to maintain a vegetarian diet. If you choose to eat meat, be sure to choose lean meats such as cage free chicken, turkey and leaner cuts of grass fed beef. Fish is also a great source of protein and omega fatty acids.
When eating tofu and other soy products, my preference is to choose products that are non-GMO.
