Vegetarian Diet Myths and Facts

 

Worry you won't feel satisfied without chicken, beef, or seafood on your plate? Even though plant-based foods are often packed with health benefits, many people still feel hesitant about going meatless. With a little planning, though, you can create simple, vegetarian meals that are every bit as filling and delicious as meat-centered ones. I'm speaking from experience, as I've been a vegetarian for more than half my life! I like to include protein-rich ingredients like beans and Greek yogurt when I want to feel energized and full. Need some more high-protein tips for your next meat-free meal?
