I just decided to become a pseudo-vegetarian (+fish, +dairy, +eggs) at the same time I decided to gain weight again. Typical of me to make things more difficult, but if I'm going to do something, might-as-well do it right. I have to say though the weight lifting has been great. I'm discovering my appetite and taste interests again with the vegetarian cooking. I think I'm actually getting more varied sources of protein than when I ate meat. Before I relied on just chicken or turkey for the majority of my protein but when it's not that easy things get a little creative and that introduces variety. Tho I have to say I am lucky in that I find very natural, earthy things delicious. Hats off to vegans, I don't think I can do that yet.

    Protein Sources:

  • Oregon Albacore Tuna (individually hooked, don't eat that other tuna shit)
  • Almond Butter (on whole wheat bread for full amino compliment)
  • Soy (of course -- tofu, milk, Clif Builder Bars)
  • Chickpeas (3 bean salad from Boston Common Coffee!)
  • Hemp Powder (mixes great with soy milk and egg whites)
  • Nature's Way Shake (how the hell do you powderize food?)
  • Whey Powder (Hammer Recoverite)
  • Lentils (easiest filling stews to make)
  • Quorn (the nuggets are awesome; going to try replacing ground turkey for the burgers I make)
  • Yogurt
