Vegetarian Somersizing

Anyone who does the same plan I'm doing (Suzanne Somers) and is a vegetarian will have a few more things to think about. You would have to eat a lot of veggies (obviously) maybe with some tofu or whole grain pasta. Vegetarians need to have more carb meals then non-vegetarians because they still need to get lots of protein and of course, fiber.

You can also cook with rice and beans - good protein sources. Use textured vegetable protein to make burgers; add it to chilis, soys and sauces. Vegans can have rice milk (not soy milk) on their carb breakfast meal.

Because I had someone ask about Vegetarian Somersizing, these recipes are for you Soni!

Vegetarian Stuffed Mushrooms

12 whole medium mushrooms, stems removed
1/4 cup butter
1 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 tsp seasoning salt

  1. In a skillet melt margarine. Saute chopped mushroom stems and other veggies
  2. Season with salt
  3. Stuff mushroom caps with filling on baking sheet
  4. Broil until bubbly

Easy Mexican Rice

1 1/2 cups uncooked brown rice
3 cups water
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 can black (or kidney) beans, drained
1 small can tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
  1. In a saucepan bring 3 cups water to a boil
  2. Add Taco seasoning and rice and stir
  3. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes
  4. Remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes
  5. Stir in beans, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, salt, pepper and lettuce
Hope this helps answer some questions?!

Thanks very much to Megan, I borrowed these two recipes from her site Somersize Recipes and Gluten Free - she has SO many great recipes and ideas!
