I'm on day 6 of the cleanse and I'm doing pretty well with clean eating. I'm actually quite enjoying it. My only issue is that I feel like I'm not getting the amount of protein that I need in. Part of this is a lack of skill in the kitchen. The other is that I want to start lifting and I feel like I really need to get my protein up for that.

Are any other vegetarians doing this? I would love a buddy to help me through. My rep isn't much help when it comes to this department and is new to advocare and clean eating herself.

I'll take non-veg buddies, too. I could just really use some extra veg help. :)

Hi,
I'm only on day 2 of the 24 day challenge but I'm a Vegetarian also and I'd love to have someone to talk to about this kinda stuff. My rep isn't too much of a help either, I've basically been told to eat lots of nuts and beans. I'm also thinking tons of spinach because it has a ton of protein in it when it's raw. I'll admit I haven't stopped eating my pre-workout meal of yogurt and granola but my rep said that should be fine, I've just decreased the size of the snack.
Looking forward to this journey to get healthier!!

I'm on day 2 of the challenge--I'm looking forward to getting through it and seeing results! I'm a meat eater, but I haven't had the appetite for much meat here lately. Mostly a few plain chicken breasts or fish. I've been munching on freeze dried blueberries--I just discovered them and I'm hooked.

Btw, I LOVE your profile pic--I LOVE my vibrams! I get funny looks from everyone until I convince them to try them. They're awesome!

get those dark greens in, they're high in protein...I think collards are the highest? Easy way to get those greens in though is to make a green smoothie.

go buy some raw/vegan protein, the best out there is sun warrior

as for your nuts and seeds, do you best to get raw and organic ones, sprout them so they become more bioavailable and non-toxic. When you sprout them they are live and the carbs convert to more protein which is awesome.

buy yourself some buckwheat, sprout those too and make a cereal out of it, its the bomb! add your favorite fruits and nuts, whatever you like. Buckwheat is super high in protein! check out nuts.com for the best raw/organic goodies

You can mix up your protein powder supplements too! Sun warrior makes two version; a brown rice protein, and a sprouted protein. you should also pick up some hemp protein by nutiva. Oh and get some hemp seeds, those are bomb too! high in protein and high in awesome fats!
