Mary Said:Vegetarians please help me...AGAIN! :)?
We Answered:Good for you! Ive recently became a vegetarian too, its been about a month though for me, and Im not really that tempted either, I feel healthier actually, Im thirteen by the way,
So Ive been researching too and basically what you need to do is-
Drink a glass of milk with breakfast lunch dinner, I dont like a lot of milk so i add a little nesquick to it at breakfast and such
drinking water is also very important, 8 glasses a day is a little extreme Id aim for more realistic goals like two- four glasses of milk and 2-4 glasses of water daily,
you need to eat beans ( i personally am not a big fan ) if not those then you need to eat lots of eggs and nuts ( I LOVE peanut butter! )
this will help keep your protien up!
whole grains, like wheat bread, and whole grain pasta and such
to help keep your fiber up eat lots of dark leafy greens like spinach leafs in your salad, green beans, its important to eat lots of vegatables.
fruits, are good for your vitamins!
Id look into daily vitamins for vegetarians too... they sell them at wallgreans and walmarts and even krogers and rite aid!
hope this helps!!!!
