Vegetarian Weight Loss Ideas

On the Run:

  • Soft bean taco, 1 cup tossed salad with fat-free dressing
  • Veggie burger on a whole grain bun topped with lettuce and tomato, 1 orange, 1 cup soymilk
  • Vegetarian frozen meal (choose one with around 300 calories), 1 cup grapes

Family Friendly:

  • 1 whole wheat pita stuffed with 1/2 cup falafel, 1 cup cucumber salad (you can leave out the cheese if you desire), 1 cup soymilk
  • 1 cup squash soup, using vegetable broth in place of chicken broth and silken tofu in place of cream), 1 cup sliced tomatoes and cucumbers drizzled with 1 teaspoon low-fat vinaigrette dressing, 1 cup Waldorf salad
  • 2 slices whole-grain bread spread with 1 tablespoon peanut butter and 1 tablespoon jelly, 1 cup yogurt (or soy yogurt) mixed with 1/2 cup applesauce

Cheap and Easy:

  • Whole wheat pita bread spread with 1/4 cup hummus, 1 cup celery and carrot sticks, 1 orange, 1 cup soymilk
  • Tortilla spread with 1/2 cup vegetarian refried beans and 1/2 cup chopped vegetables (try a combination of tomatoes, onions, and green and red peppers), 1 cup yogurt (or soy yogurt) mixed with 1/2 cup chopped apple
  • 1 cup meatless chili, 1 piece cornbread with 1 teaspoon tub margarine, 1/2 cup fruit cocktail
