I'm heavily cutting down on my meat and dairy products consumption. Not ruling them all out entirely, just doing my best. Can we get some recipe suggestions in here for good protein-heavy recipes with minimal meat?

I buy some of those tofurkey sausages, they aren't so bad

I like to cook them with eggs, like regular sausage

lots of calories, protein, and some fiber

other than that I try to eat chicken and fish, anything with a low feed-conversion ratio

Holy shit, baked sweet potatoes are fucking bomb. Just pierce the potato all over with a fork, bake it for an hour at 400°F and enjoy. I'll eat those shits with no fucking dressing or add-ons. Seriously. They're wonderful.

Good on you OP. That isn't easy to do. Unless you're a serious bodybuilder or athlete, I wouldn't worry about protein. The average American gets between 3 and 10 times the amount of daily protein they need, which just taxes our livers. Save your liver for alcohol, trust me.

Here is my simplest vegan recipe. You just serve it with white rice. It's hard to believe broccoli can taste this good.

1/2 Carrot, sliced
2 Heads Broccoli, cut into bite size pieces, flowers only

Bring pot of water to rolling boil, add carrot and broccoli. Stir and cook for 20 seconds. Remove, strain in colander, and wash under cold water to prevent further cooking.

3/4 Whole Yellow Onion, chopped
1 Bulb Garlic (or less), minced
2 Fresno Chilis, sliced (or other hot pepper, optional)
1 tbsp Salt
1 pinch Black Pepper (optional)

Heat wok dry on high heat for 90 seconds. Then add 2-4 tbsp cooking oil and swirl wok to cover surface. Let sit for 10-20 seconds, then add garlic and onion. Stir constantly, for 10-30 seconds, until fragrant, then add fresno chilis, blanched carrot and broccoli, salt, and optional pepper. Season with soy sauce to taste (2-5 tbsp) and 1 tbsp of chili garlic paste or sambal (optional). Serve with rice.

sausage + eggs is a recipe, fuck you son

cooking them with eggs doesn't miss the point either

eggs are a great source of protein and other bullshit that you need, and in terms of how much damage they do to the environment it isn't substantial compared to what you get

I'm not either of those things but most vegan food I've tried leaves me feeling full but still low blood sugared, which isn't ideal. Loading the dish with tofu, quorn or mushroom prevents it for some reason. I'll give your recipe a try and report back.

Sorry man I was drunk and bummed that the replies weren't as veg as I hoped. You're not so bad.

I'm doubtful the average american gets 120-450g of protein per day. But maybe they get that much processed shit which is really half carbs and carcinogens though. Then again maybe they really do eat a huge 500g steak every day and pile it on top of a heap of eggs, rice, nuts etc.

If you're not going vegan a single portion of "protein" and a good mix of veg will do most people, if you're eating a small amount of unprocessed meat (say 100-150g of cooked weight chicken breast) you're probably most of the way there with everything else taking up the slack.

Broccoli is under rated though. And it's especially good in a stir fry. Being a Brit I notice too many people just boil veg and wonder why they're bland. Cook them in something. Even other veg. A stir fry is pretty economical and can be pretty tasty with just a few herbs and spices and not much effort, the secret is probably oil though.

If OP is dipping into a mix of rice, nuts, peas, beans, *decent* bread/pasta over a couple of days he's going to get most of what he needs without thinking about it though. Unless is he pushing his body really hard or something.

>I'm doubtful the average american gets 120-450g of protein per day.
To be completely honest, I've heard mixed numbers. Some stats claims it's 2-5x, others claim as much as 10x. A single McDonalds meal can break 50g, an adult male's daily protein requirement (assuming you get exercise regularly), so it isn't hard to see 3x and 4x being common, but 10x is probably rare.

An important point about broccoli: if you blanch it for 20 seconds before frying, it will have a better texture and a brighter greener color. Once you try it, you'll never turn back.

If you get their meatiest meals yes. However if you're eating 4 of their fanciest burgers every day you should just be euthanised.

Really cheap food has more carbs and shit in and less protein. People will actually struggle to hit the recommended amount if they're eating cheap. A big mac for example is about 12g of protein around here. That's a small egg. Considering the meal is 1000kcal+ you're looking at getting really fat without even getting 50g/protein.

Most people open their day with processed carbs like toast or cheap cereal surely? Then if they're not eating anything decent they might get 20g at lunch and unless they're eating good quality burgers/shit or lots of whole meat they're not going to clear another 30g.

I still think your stats are extreme cases. I can imagine people hitting it on average? 2-3x is believable but I suspect what you have is a mean being skewed heavily by those extreme cases while a lot of people eat 1-2x. Much like wealth except instead of billionaires its fat people with a meat fetish.

Lentils are your friend. Refried lentils make a good taco crumble. Don't let years of soup make you think they have to be swimming in water.

Learn to make seitan. It's cheap if you buy gluten flour and better than any of that fake sausage stuff once you get the flavoring down. It just takes more spice and salt/bouillon than you think at first. Eventually you can work in variations, and it becomes a pretty expressive protein.

No. They eat insects.

It's sad how contentious veganism is. It's the one diet that isn't total bullshit, like the Atkins, Paleo, or Keto diets are, and yet it's by far the most contentious one, despite being the most environmentally and nutritionally sound.

Beans are always good for protein, or so i hear.. You could make this maybe https://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/black-bean-hummus, or maybe for some level of plant-y iron https://www.taste.com.au/recipes/silverbeet-lemon-walnuts/024bc442-dc08-4dba-a7de-17972d4eb33f

If you want food that's close to meat, and are willing to buy some of the big jazz that's been going on with advertising there's the whole "beyond meat" things. I tried one of their burgers tonight and they're actually really good. Not sure how actually healthy/environmentally stable they are if that's part of the cutting down thing for you, but at least nothing bigger than maybe some insects went into it if they fell into the processing line. They're also really friggen expensive though so there's that.

If you wanna go wholly vegan a lot of people who do seem to eat a lot of fruit, nuts, legumes and that sort of thing, it's hard to know how to get enough iron and such in ways that are actually gonna absorb properly though.

I thought the argument that veganism is more environmentally sound had more to do with land/water (and to some extent, methane production) than with it being processed in big scary factories.

I mean meat is also churned out and processed in factories. These processed vegan meat alternatives are usually just soy and wheat protein pressed together, and those have less of an environmental impact.

Is there something I'm missing?

Actually, in comparison to what they're replacing, they are environmentally sound foods. Factories don't inherently make food unsustainable to produce. They usually aren't very healthy though. My vegan roommate has a saying, "You can be a bad vegan," meaning that just because you're a vegan doesn't mean you're eating well.
>I thought the argument that veganism is more environmentally sound had more to do with land/water (and to some extent, methane production) than with it being processed in big scary factories.
Yes, that's exactly right. Cows live for 10+ years, and they drink hundreds of gallons of water daily, twice that if they're nursing. The amount of water, plus the amount of food (which requires more water/land/nutrients) is incredibly high. for relatively low payoff.

>Is there something I'm missing?

"in comparison to a humvee" a new SUV is environmentally sound. what a shitty argument. If you're gonna take the moral high ground better than x is no grounds for any sort of preaching.

Native grasslands are superior to monocultures and cows/goats are great at preventing the spread of invasives. The state is not going to nationalize 99% of the country because it makes you happy. The land will get converted over to more productive uses in a meat free world and all will be more environmentally damaging than meat production.

Outside of factory farms cows eat grass or grain unsuitable for human consumption. Neither of which take up more cropland than would exist currently. This makes up the majority of their "calculated" water consumption figures you read off the blogspot.

Oh please. Comparing alternative food options to what we currently eat is completely legitimate. You're whole humvee misquote relies on the idea that we're comparing something horribly unsustainable and setting the bar low, but that isn't the case. Again, preparing a product in a factory does not make it inherently wasteful or unsustainable.

Why are you such an edgy cunt? Blogspot? I have a degree in environmental science. You don't know anything about any anons, and insults aren't a substitute for an argument. How about you tackle my claims instead of trying to make up things that undermine my authority.

If you start eating food based on your fat, caloric, protein, and nutritional needs the whole vegan thing will start to put itself in order. There are only a few ways to go about it and not die. You basically have two options:
Learn to love beans and carbs, or buy premade vegan food

This is a good idea for a thread. It's always good to know non-meat alternatives to protein sources. I will save some of these recipes because I don't always want to eat meat. It's better to have multiple avenues open. I don't want to eat the same food continuously. I don't want to feel as if I'm a complete factory pressed being. Designed calorie and macronutrient counts planned out for a year down the line, no ambiguity, clear tables set up. lol We gotta keep the people out of harm's way. Too much meat when consumed leads to certain health issues. Not adhering to a completely compositionally uninterrupted diet will fix components of health problems arising from foods.

They're pretty damn good.
>Meatless meatballs (Make spaghetti!!)

>Fake-Hamburger scramble. (Easily the most versatile product that they sell IMO! I like to make taco/crunchwraps with them. I also like to make it and add sloppy joe mix to make easy, NOT FUCKIN GREASY, sloppy joes.

Morningstar is also a good brand. They're got some good buffalo chicken flavored patties. As well as good fake-hamburgers.
