How to get enough protein as a vegetarian?

1. Legumes

If you eat it right, your comfort food of dal and rice or khichdi can be healthy and full of protein.

2. Soy products

If you're tired of being told to eat paneer instead of meat, try soy. Soya or soybean is one of the best sources of protein.

3. Quinoa

Is quinoa better than rice? It's a debate we will get into later, but quinoa is a versatile grain-like seed that is a complete protein, containing all essential amino acids.

4. Nuts and seeds

Nuts and seeds are full of healthy fats and have a good amount of energy as well. Adding nuts and seeds to our diet is very important.


5. Whole grains

Whole grains are good to add to a diet that is high in protein. About 2.7 grams of protein are in every 100 grams of brown rice, which can be used instead of white rice.

6. Milk and cheese

If you are trying to become vegan, you might want to skip this step. Not only are dairy products a good source of proteins, but they are also a good source of other things like calcium.

7.  Plant-based milk alternatives

Try plant-based milk options if you want to become a vegan, even though they aren't as healthy.

8. Nut spread

Nut butters are a tasty treat that is full of energy. They are now used a lot and added to many foods to make them more protein-rich.
