Newly minted vegetarian...now what do I eat???
Hey all! I am 3 years post op. About 6 months ago I totally lost my taste for any kind of animal flesh- beef, pork, chicken, fish, shellfish-- every great once in awhile I can handle sushi, but for the most part, blech to all of it. I thought it was a phase and it might pass, but it looks like it is here to stay. WTH do I EAT? I will NOT eat a lot of tofu/soy because it is not good for you. I also do not eat fake food (protein bars and the like)- because I want to eat food as close to it's natural state as possible. I do eat eggs and a little dairy, although not much cheese because it has so much fat and calories and I WILL NOT eat lowfat cheese (OMG SO GROSS!!!). I know beans are relatively good for protein, but I can only eat so much of them before it gets tiresome. I am going to see a nutritionist next Friday for help, but thought I would ask here, too. Thoughts?
