I won't discuss now why I want to decrease the amounts of carbs I eat--I'll save that for when I have more time--but I'm back to eating a vegetarian diet and am frustrated that I eat about twice the RDA (which is actually MY RDA, not based on what the medical community recommends) of carbs and get much less protein than I'd like.
My protein sources include such foods as kasha, a cup of which contains 33g of carbs compared to 6g of protein; navy beans, a cup of which has 20g of protein but 54g of carbs; quinoa, packing in 39g of carbs to 8g of protein in a cup...
I would like to take in about 50g of protein a day, which isn't hard to do, but I don't want to eat such a high-carb diet. Any suggestions?
Thanks...and please, don't criticize this thread. If it doesn't interest you, please "change the channel."
