Isn’t Protein Hard to Get on a Vegetarian Diet?

No, protein is not at all hard to get on a vegetarian diet.  Although vegetarians are known to consume less protein than “meat lovers,” as we like to call them here at Next Jump, they can still easily meet their protein needs.

Eggs, dairy, legumes and beans are the top sources for vegetarians.  Grains, nuts, seeds, tofu and vegetables all provide protein, as well.

Meat substitutes (like veggie burgers, soy crumbles, tempeh) provide, ounce for ounce, as much protein as meat!

Vegetarians who go out of their way to include protein into their diet have no problem consuming the recommended amount for their bodies per day.

At dinner time, we make sure to include both vegetarian and meat sources of protein.  If you have an idea about new veggie protein offerings – feel free to email mbeck@nextjump.com.
