Paging Wookie: what sources of protein was your husband told to eat to replace animal protein

Hi Wookie,

I'm just curious to see what your husband was told to eat to replace animal protein. As I stated, I still eat meat, but not as often & I only eat chicken or fish. I use sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, flaxseeds & nuts to meet my protein needs. In my smoothies I use protein powder, raw cashews, & hemp seeds to add protein.

He can eat raw fish, sushi grade. And I'm pretty sure he can eat cheese. We usually eat feta, and sometimes other Greek cheeses or Parm on some vegetables. I did buy cheeses today. He usually follows a low carb diet. So we shall see if this works for him.

If he follows it most of the time, he should do well on it. I'm not 100% raw & I've still had good results. I changed the way I ate late last fall when I was diagnosed with a number of food allergies/intolerances. I've lost 30 lbs & I look the best I have in years. I'm still working on the energy part.........
