Go meat-less this holiday season!

Holiday time doesn’t have to be turkey-, pig-, or chicken-killing time! Besides, why gain all the extra holiday weight by eating animal fat?

Since I’ve pretty much stopped eating meat/animal fat, I’ve lost weight, feel “lighter” … and last week my yearly physical results came in: This old broad’s cholesterol level, BMI, blood pressure, sugar level, thyroid, iron, vitamin D, etc, etc normal to excellent!!

Rosalie – old vegetarian broad!

Everyone’s always amazed that my blood pressure level is excellent, what with InCity Times, Jett and my screwy life in general. I say to them: GO VEGGIE and you can do ANYTHING!

I really believe vegetarianism/MUCH LESS ANIMAL meat and fat is the way to go for all us middle-aged folks! It keeps us trim and healthy! Without all that much work!

Here are protein sources to be wolfing down if you go meatless!

 – Rosalie Tirella



Vegans are constantly asked where they get their protein, when, in fact, protein is one of the easiest nutrients to find! These are just some examples of foods with a high protein value but no cholesterol or cruelty to animals. Not only are these foods easy to find and affordable, they’re also delicious!

1. Black beans

Black beans can be served alone or as a side. They also taste great in burritos, enchiladas, homemade patties, soups, or chili. They can even be added to baked goods!

Try these black-bean veggie burgers.

2. Tofu

You can marinate it, sauté it, grill it, mash it, bake it, and even blend it. Tofu will absorb any flavor that you put on it, which makes it suitable for many recipes. Add it to tacos, sandwiches, salads, or baked goods. It can also be used to make sauces, creams, or smoothies.

Try these Thai tofu lettuce wraps.

3. Nuts

There is a large variety of nuts, and they are all versatile and delicious. You can make vegan cheese sauces, nut milks, nut butters, and even faux meats from different types of nuts.

Try this nacho recipe using cashews.

4. Tempeh

Tempeh absorbs any flavor, just as tofu does. It can also be fried, baked, sautéed, or grilled. Tempeh can be used in pastas, sandwiches, tacos, chili, and many other dishes.

Try this tempeh Reuben sandwich.

5. Garbanzos

Garbanzo beans or chickpeas are a versatile legume. Add them to salads, soups, or wraps. You can mash them to form patties or blend them to create hummus.

Try this sandwich with mashed garbanzo beans.

6. Broccoli

Broccoli is a lean, green protein. You can add steamed broccoli to stir-fries, salads, or pastas. You can also add it to soups whole or blend it for a healthy green soup.

Try this tofu, rice, and broccoli dish.

7. Quinoa

You can use quinoa anywhere that you would use rice—as a side dish, mixed with veggies, inside a burrito, or on a salad. It can also be used to form faux burger patties.

Try this quinoa salad.

8. Lentils

Lentils can be added to tacos, burritos, soups, stews, and salads and can also be used to form faux meats, such as lentil burger patties. They’re quick and easy to make, too.

Try these lentil cakes.

9. Potato

Potatoes get a bad rap, but they can actually be good for you because of their high protein content. Dice them, and add them to your burritos, tofu scrambles, tacos, and stews. Or you can cut them lengthwise and bake them for a healthier version of French fries.

Try this creamy dill potato salad.

10. Mushrooms


There are various types of mushrooms, and they can be sliced or served whole. Use them in pastas, stir-fries, or tacos or on pizzas or serve them in a burger.

Try this mushroom risotto.

These are just 10 of the top protein sources, but there are many more! The number of recipes that you can make with these foods is endless, so get creative!
