Green vegetables diet plan
We’ve all been there: It’s six months into the New Year and that gym membership still hasn’t been activated. And that resolution to kick the meat habit for good? It, too, fell by the wayside, thanks to the neighbor’s pepperoni-pizza-fueled Super Bowl party. You know you want to get healthy and clean up your diet, so which excuse is keeping you from going full-fledge veg? We know, we know. There are so many to choose from!
Dismantling the myths that stand between you and optimal health is no easy feat; after all, well-meaning friends and family have been hurling their unfounded fears at you since you first announced your intention to give meat the heave-ho. Hear them out, but also listen to what the experts have to say: vegetarianism is healthful, delicious, affordable, and time-efficient too.
It’s never too late to turn good intentions into action, and our 28-day plan supports you every step of the way. You’ll find tasty recipes to get you started and menus to tie it all together. First off, doctors and dietitians bust those diehard mythsyes, you’ll get plenty of protein.
THE PROTEIN MYTH: You’ll Wither Away Without Meat
Sometimes, it seems our families exist for the sole purpose of worrying about us, especially when we say nay to the turkey at Thanksgiving, pass on the pot roast at Christmas, or skip the brisket at Passover. “But you used to love my meatloaf, ” comes the kitchen chorus. “You’re going to starve. Eat!”
The next time Grandma gives you grief for skipping the skirt steak and heading straight for the baked potato, salad, and grilled vegetables, tell her not to worrythe doctor says it’s OK. “As long as you are eating a variety of plant foods, you’ll easily get all the protein you need, ” says Neal D. Barnard, MD, VT‘s Ask the Doc columnist and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
The exact amount of protein you need depends largely on your body weight, but it’s roughly 1 gram for every 2.2 pounds. “Protein should hit no less than 50 grams per day, so aim for meals that have at least 12 grams, and snacks with 5 to 7 grams.” advises Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, LDN, who designed our 28-day Veg Boot Camp meal plan to deliver a generous 16 grams of protein per meal. With simple planning, vegetarians can easily access all the protein their bodies require to thrive, says Blatner, but remember to incorporate beans, nuts, and seeds into each of your main meals and most of your snacks: “Beans and lentils are the best sources of protein, and there are so many options.” And don’t forget the humble soybean in its myriad forms: edamame, tofu, and tempeh are satisfying sources of plant-based protein.
