    Default Good Source of Protein for Vegetarians

    Now that Quinoa has been ruled out as a source of protein, I am looking for some thing real vegetarian that can be a good protein source unlike Soy based or Quorn.. I am not into Whey protein either.. .

    Thanks

    Check out Mike Mahler's website. He has some good information on how to get good amounts of protein into a vegan diet.

    Finding something that is pretty much only protein is not gonna work though unless you like various vegetarian protein powders.

    Why rule out quorn? And why rule out a quality whey protein? Are you deliberately trying to make it hard on yourself?

    And I second checking out Mike Mahler.

    True Protein makes the only vegan protein powder I've ever used that isn't hideously expensive. It's made from gemma pea, brown rice and hemp proteins, and doesn't cost anymore than Whey. Beyond that, beans and brown rice.
    Yes, intermittent fasting works. I lost 30 lbs in 4 months on Eat Stop Eat.

    Vegan and not hideously expensive? That'd be a challenge.

    While I don't have a solution, I would suggest checking out the SunWarrior (Mike Mahler's recommendation). http://www.sunwarrior.com

    Keep away from the Warrior Blend, I found Natural to be horrible in taste, and the flavored varieties inedible (my guess is the gum blend had something to do with it). However, the Raw Vegan protein, though chalky is a bit more palatable.

    If you want a blend, though expensive, I'd recommend Vega Sport Performance Protein. Check the Vega site: http://shop.myvega.com/sequel-estore-us/Vega-Sport
    to see what is 'on promotion.' Sadly, it seems their '2 for 1' protein special has ended.

    bodybuilding.com has a decent price, at times.

    That said, the blend is green. If you've taken green supplements before, you'll know what I mean. However, I find the taste to be enjoyable, and less chalky than the Sun Warrior (though the Vega berry can be a little chalky). My only complaint, besides the cost, is the high sodium in the Vanilla and Chocolate flavors.

    Hopefully, this will help your protein search, sorry about the wallet though.

    Lentil's are a good source of protein,and contain many essential nutrients. They cook fast and can be used in soups, salads, cookies,etc. I believe around 18 grams of protein per serving. Lots of fiber. You can search for tons of information and recipes.

    Why is quinoa ruled out as a source of protein?

    Pastured eggs and raw milk if you can get them. Unless you're going for low-fat, in that case try egg whites with the occasional whole egg.

    Quinoa was a reject because of high calorific value and high inflammation factor. 1 cup of boiled Quinoa somewhere around 250-300 cals.
