As a vegetarian - June 23rd 2017, 03:24 PM

As a vegetarian, I find a lot of things i can eat are cheese based
Cheese, has quite a lot of fat
even some soups i looked at had highish salt (45 % of my daily limit in the can!)
I am posting this to ask who knows about healthy + vegetarian options and to share them here please

i appreciate any and all suggestions

Home cooked foods are probably best. If you want to go with ready made, perhaps canned beans or vegetables. But things like soup maybe buy vegan broth that way it won't have dairy products.
Miso paste is one option to.buy, as you can make Miso soup. Miso is a fermented soybean product. Perhaps there's one with low sodium. You can add different vegetables and things to it.

I would suggest cooking vegetarian-friendly meals yourself. You can find recipes online and alter them to suit your dietary needs, and not have to worry about the unhealthy stuff that comes with prepared food, such as sodium and fat.

I'm sure I can do that, it just depends if i have what i need
if not, it can cost way more to buy ingredients then to just buy the choice food

We don't buy premade foods except as a special treat so everything is homemade. The cans of soup, sauces, pizzas, ect are not overalls healthy and we can make them healthier and with fresh ingredients and knw what is inside of it!

I'm going to copy my reply from another post because I'm not home bbut I wanted to reply.

I'm vegetarian and two of my siblings can't have dairy and another is lactose intolerant so it's easier to make them all things without dairy.(If there is milk, it is usually cashew or some other dairy alternative)

Buddha bowls: I usually do lettuce, kale (baby it's not as tough), spinach, collard, watercress, mushrooms, cucumbers, peppers (red, yellow and orange), broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, brown rice or quinoa (depending on what I'm feeling like) and then roasted chickpeas (I make a big batch in the oven with herbs and spices and a dash of coconut oil and that way I don't need to make them every day) and sometimes I will cook up some tofu.

Salads: I usually just throw in veggies and sometimes some vegetarian chicken strips and such, my siblings favourites are brussels sprout and kale salad, chickpea lentil radish salad, kale edamame and quinoa, pomegranate salad, strawberry spinach and quinoa salad, ect.

Zoodles, spaghetti squash, ect with either homemade pesto or tomato sauce (usually from dinner left overs) or pasta with roasted veggies (like peppers, tomatoes, brussel sprouts, ect)

Wraps: lettuce, kale, spinach, mushrooms, watercress, alfalfa sprouts, shredded carrots, sliced tomatoes, cucumber, pickles, tofu and some dressing (we use this semi local greek dressing that has no dairy in it that I think you can buy online) or sometimes we will use one that we made or falafel wraps (we make our own falafels but you can buy them), collard green wraps with sweet potato and chipotle black beans, beetroot leaf And yoghurt flatbreads, ect.

Soup/chilis: Minestone, black eyed pea soup, butternut squash, bean, black bean and sweet potato chilli, ect (I can give recipes if you would like)

Smoothies: I like putting things like kale, spinach, celery, strawberries, ect with chia seeds with coconut youghurt and kombucha.

Muffins: We make muffins with applesauce, flax seed, fruits (depending on the type like banana or apple or carrots) with no eggs or dairy and very little sugar. You can do muffins with non dairy alternatives as well. (Again I can give you recipes if you want lol)

Pancakes: This sounds weird but my siblings love bringing pancakes for lunches with berries or jam or very rarely, syrup. Their favourites are green smoothie pancakes sent with a side of either strawberries, raspberries or blueberries (we buy loads in the summer and freeze them so when we melt them they have this syrup sort of so they don't need to use syrup), apple protein pancakes with chopped apple with cinnamon and lemon, oatmeal pancakes with berries, or just protein pancakes with berries lol. Again, I can give recipes if you want lol.

Burritos: beans, rice (brown, sometimes spanish rice), lettuce, veggies, salsa.

Pizza: usually leftovers but things like pizza with a cauliflower crust (it really is good), eggplant pizza crust (like sliced and then topped with sauce and toppings), ect,

Croissants are also an option. Umm, if you like banana/zucchini bread you can make that as well.
