10 Mouthwatering Fast Metabolism Diet Vegetarian Recipes
It has been attested by many that the fast metabolism diet brought miracles to our health. We’ve heard amazing stories about how we could lose some weight and live a healthier lifestyle by adhering to the rules set by the diet. The diet teaches us how to love food and eat only the real ones, staying away from the fake foods that ruins our metabolism and health. While a certain group of people, especially the vegetarians is skeptical about doing this diet, it could be necessary to shed light if this diet can still work for them. So today, we will answer the intriguing question. How will this work when meat is especially included in the program? How will this affect my choice as vegetarian? Lot of meat recipes are featured in the fast metabolism diet. Can the vegan, or vegetarians do the diet?
The answer is yes! Every recipes and food lists featured in this diet, there’s an equivalent vegan recipe with it. There are plenty of other high-protein, meat free foods that you can eat on the fast metabolism diet. Let’s tackle what will be your meal map and food list in every phase.
Before we move forward, let’s get familiar with the types of vegetarianism:
- A strict vegetarian, a vegan, avoids all foods of animal origin, including meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, and eggs.
- Lacto-vegetarians include dairy products in their diet. Lacto-ovo- vegetarians also eat dairy products and eggs.
- Pesco-vegetarians eat fish, dairy products, and eggs along with plant foods. (We believe this is the healthiest diet for most people).
- Finally, there are semi-vegetarians, who cheat a little and eat a little poultry along with fish, as well as dairy products and eggs. Most veggie lovers are not strict vegans.
In every recipe that requires meat, you can substitute meat with 1/2 cup of cooked legumes. The examples of legumes that you can substitute are: lentils, black beans, white beans, or any phase-specific beans. If you are Pesco-vegetarian, you can also eat egg whites and fish recipes that are rich in protein like halibut, tuna, sardines, salmon. Remember, the no soy rule also applies to you in this Phase,the same as Phase 3.
Phase 2 will be the most challenging part of a vegetarian. This is because this phase is a low-carb phase. If you are making an exemption of eating fish and eggs, then you should be fine in this phase. You can have egg recipes and fish recipes as your source of protein. But, for strict vegetarians who don’t settle to fish and and poultry products, what will be their options?
A special rule exemption applies to all the vegans. You can break the no-soy rule to replace meat as your animal-protein. You can have the following as a meat replacement.
- Soy Tempeh
- Bragg liquid Aminos
If possible, choose organic and non-GMO for the ones listed above. It is also recommended to cook your tofu, or other soy products yourself than to buy a pre-baked one. As it is more processed than the raw one.
Phase 3 is almost the same with phase 1. Except that in this phase, you get to eat the whole eggs instead of the white ones only. You can now also eat healthy fats in this phase.
Don’t get discouraged now and quit achieving a healthier lifestyle just because you’re a vegetarian. Vegans can certainly do this diet. The community wishes you all the best in your fast metabolism diet journey!
