I have been gluten free for a while and I'd like to try going vegetarian (the lacto/ovo kind). I'm nervous because the gluten-free diet can be a bit tedious at times, and I don't know if I'd be making more trouble for myself. I also am a yoga instructor and a personal trainer, and I'm not sure if taking meat protein out of my diet is a good idea. The other caviat is my husband does not want to go vegetarian and the kids just couldn't give up their Bob Evans sausage on the weekends
Just wondering if anyone has any tips, suggestions, or comments...
I am gluten-free and a vegan. I'm also a personal trainer and yoga teacher... I don't see WHY it wouldn't be a good idea to take meat out of your diet
Tips? Know how to cook and eat properly. Take advantage of all of the high-protein/nutrition grains, delicious proteins, and healthy fats.
Eat loads of vegetables, fruits, and eat a variety of foods!
And as for the whole compelte protein business, if you're not a vegan, you'll be getting that from dairy and eggs, but also the complete vegan proteins of soy, hemp seeds, quinoa and amaranth. Food combining and protein combining is not necessary in the same meal, but recommended over the course of a day or two. Ensure you're getting all your vitamins and minerals, too.
I speak about nutrition often and do presentations, written articles, et cetera. If you have questions, let me know.
