How do u plan ur vegetarian diet?



Answer on How do u plan ur vegetarian diet?

I would look up all the vitamins and nutrients that are in meat and make sure you get ALL of them from other foods. I became vegetarian for two years but didn't get enough Iron, Protein, B-12 etc and I ended up in the hospital. But that probably won't happen to you, just be sure to do research and get all the things you need!
Examples-
Cheese
Milk
Beans
Tofu (fake meat is really good, it has lots of Protein in it too)
A vitamin with Iron in it (you don't have to but it's good)
Lots of green, leafy vegetables
Overall, get a wide variety from all food groups as much as possible!
