When it comes to protein having knowledge of the choices available can go a long way to enhancing your health and fitness results. What is rarely discussed is that many faster food options are carbohydrate and fat based. This traditionally is not beneficial if your goal is leaning towards fat loss since it becomes more challenging to track your nutrition.

Focusing on protein, not too long ago I wrote an article highlighting the benefit of eating it. It’s fairly easy to put this macronutrient on the back burner in replacement for faster food options, but what about if you are looking for vegetarian protein sources?

If your goal is to maintain lean muscle mass and you are vegetarian this list is ideal for you. Feel free to combine the information with our meal plan method to make meals simple, effective and efficient for your overall health and fitness goals.
