Can you suggest a protein rich diet for a vegetarian?
Q: I am a 50 yrs old healthy male. I have been asked to take more proteins in my diet. I am strictly vegetarian and a teetotaler. How can I get a protein rich diet? I have no medical problems whatsoever.
A:You should include sprouted pulses, dals, milk and its products. Try to include more of curd and paneer since they are rich in protein as well as good for your digestive system. Can also include soy nuggets or tofu. Also have a handful of roasted chana daily. Can include pumpkin or sunflower seeds or few almonds daily to enhance your diet with protein as well as healthy fats and Vitamin E.
