Any ideas for protein packed veggies?



Recommended Posts

So, I've been having a bit of a struggle lately getting all my Protein in and I'm really bored of eating the same things day after day. What I've been craving is vegetables, especially zucchini and brussel sprouts! Great for low calories but not so much on the protein. Since we are so limited to meal size, I'm trying to make ever bite as protein packed as possible. I'm back to eating regular foods, no restrictions so I'm looking for some good ideas and/or recipes.

Anyone have any great ideas how to "protein up" some veggies? :)

Edamame is an excellent source of Protein and I love how delicious they are. I like to roast them personally but they are great warm, cold, or added to certain dishes.

Zucchini boats(hollow with a spoon)stuff with ricotta cheese and spices of choice- roast in oven. Pasta Sauce for dipping.

You could make zucchini noodles (love me some zoodles!) and add any Protein you'd like, ground turkey, cheese crumbles, other veggies. And it's like having pasta!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
