As the Total Wellbeing Diet focuses on achieving optimum nutrition from a variety of whole-foods (including meat), we do not currently have a vegetarian meal plan available. However, our program can definitely be adjusted for vegetarian eating patterns and below are the tips to best achieve this!
As a vegetarian you can use our vegetarian meal swaps. Simply use the arrows that appear under the meal name within your menu plan. This will open a new page, in which the available swaps will be displayed as a list. Once you are happy with your selection, then select 'swap one' (for just that days meal) or 'swap all' (for all times that meal occurs in that week). This will then amend your weeks menu plan, and shopping list to include the new ingredients.
You can also definitely substitute lentils and other forms of vegetarian sources of protein for the animal proteins. If you wish to substitute non-meat protein, we would suggest eating 100g tofu or 150g cooked chickpeas, beans or lentils instead of 100g meat/fish/chicken or 2 eggs for 1 unit of protein.
Further suggestions include:
100g meat/protein (Eg lunch meal)
- 100 g tofu
- 150 g cooked chickpeas, beans or lentils instead of
- 100 g Fish (fresh or canned)
- 2 eggs
150g meat/protein (Eg dinner meal)
- 150 g tofu
- 200 g cooked chickpeas, beans or lentils instead of
- 150 g Fish (fresh or canned)
- 3 eggs for 1 unit of protein.
