Hey there!

Wondering how to hit your protein goal when you’re a vegetarian? You are not alone. I get this question quite a lot, especially from prospective vegetarian nutrition clients who want to track macros. ⁠

It seems like a lot of people think that macros are just for people who eat meat, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Macro are for EVERYONE!! Macros are a TOOL (not a diet) to help you learn more about your food choices and how those choices make you feel as you work toward your goals. Basically, no matter how you classify your dietary preferences, macros can work for you!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

As you can see, hitting your daily protein goal as a vegetarian isn’t impossible. Planning ahead and always having high-protein options on-hand can really set you up for success! Remember: If there’s a will, there’s a way! ⁠⠀

⠀ ⁠

Here’s how to hit your protein goal when you’re a vegetarian and some additional quick tips: ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

  • Plan ahead using a macro-tracking app – this is often key to reaching your protein goal! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀
  • Make your portions bigger – eating one egg at breakfast? Eat 2 or 3! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀
  • Make sure ALL meals and snacks have protein in them ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀
  • Always have protein on hand – always be prepping or thinking ahead! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀
  • Reassess your protein goal – is it too high and making you crazy? Try lowering it and replacing with fat or carbs (fiber) to keep you satisfied!⁠⠀
