Best vegetarian meals

Definition: A "vegetarian meal" is one which does not contain the flesh of any animal. Beef, chicken, fish, pork, and lamb are all examples of non-vegetarian foods. A good vegetarian meal is a lot more than simply one that avoids meat. If you are trying to gain muscle then the protein content of the meal is very important. Fortunately for vegetarians, both dairy and egg have even higher quality protein than meat does. Vegetarians are at NO disadvantage when it comes to building muscle, in fact, in many ways its an advantage. If you are trying to lose fat then its important to pack a maximum of protein, vitamins, anti-oxidants, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids into a minimum of calories.

The mistake most people make when googling "best vegetarian meals" is that they are only getting a dangerous half answer. You cannot simply say that "broccoli egg white scramble" is a good vegetarian meal because its NOT unless you eat just the right amount. Eat too much and you will GAIN fat, not lose it. Eat too little and you cause your body to burn off muscle. Not only do you need to know what meals to eat but what the proper portion size is!
