In brief: Eat beans

Most vegetarians are really carboterians so eat more plant based protein: beans, nuts/seeds, tofu/tempeh, legumes, avocados, quinoa.
Aim for 7-9 servings of veggies/fruits and use only whole grains such as quinoa, brown rice and steel cut oats. You can use plant based protein powders such as pea powder, maca powder and or chia since they are gluten free as well. There are vegan protein bars too.
