Vegetarian needs help.

Question Posted Saturday March 19 2011, 11:56 am

I've been a vegetarian for three years. I am fifteen. My parents aren't the most wealthiest people and my family's kind of poor. Without any meat, I feel fine. For a while I felt refreshed and great. But lately I have been feeling very run down and sleepy. I feel like I'm not getting enough protein. I drink expensive protein shakes I get every so often and I take vitamins too. But what else can I do to boost my protein?

im a veggie too and it gets pretty hard. ok, eggs and yogurt are GREAT sources of protein. i love greek yogurt, and drink soymilk. hope i helped:] also, more whole grains should help your energy. p.s. vitamin B12 is very important, take those. also if vitamins get too pricey, just stock up on vitamin water. (vitamin water has sugar in it so try vitamin water zero) good luck<3

First, consult your physician. At fifteen, you're still growing and your body requires certain nutrients for that. You can still get them and be vegetarian at the same time, but it requires a little extra planning in your diet.

Otherwise: beans & nuts. Soybeans in particular are rich in protein.

Yeah, eat a lot of beans. I know there are some great tasting vegetarian kidney beans that you can eat. You can buy them from Walmart. It's in a green can. No cooking necessary. Protein shakes lack essential amino acids that you need in your system. Try looking up meat substitutes. You can also buy tofu. That's really healthy.
