Hi,

I'm struggling to find foods that are veggie/vegan friendly that are low in carbs and fat but high in protein.
I can find high protein but they all seem to be high in fat also or if I go Quorn mad - what do I eat it with that isn't carb crazy??

If anyone can help I would be really grateful

I can't think of anything off hand (Egg Beaters?) but I would suggest going into the Recipes portion of this site and search for low carb ideas and maybe something will jump out at you.

Protein powders are fairly low in carbs and fat also and you can mix them with water.

If you eat eggs, try a 2-egg omelette with lots of veg (pre-sauteed zucchini/yellow squash, broccoli, etc) and a little cheese. If you're looking for low-fat, you can always do shredded parm/romano for taste without a lot of fat. I find a little cheese makes it more satisfying.

I also do a variation where I make an "egg-bake" and throw basically everything into it. I use a 13x9 pan and about 12 eggs made up like scrambled eggs (spray the pan though) and then throw all sorts of veg and some cheese in, let it bake about 20-25 mins on 375. The top will look a little golden but poke it to test for doneness. I bring this for our office happy birthday breakfasts and everyone likes it.

Edamame, tofu (yuck)in a stir fry, egg with veggies, peanut butter on a low Carb tortilla, black soy beans, muffin in a minute, whole natural almonds to name a few. Veggies will have a little protein so a salad or stir fry, chili made with the black soy beans and a little protein powder that's low Carb, unsweetened almond milk with peanut butter. Hope this helps

Maybe a medium rare steak with the fat cut off.

have you tried quinoa? you can probably find it in your local whole market or health food store. it's high in protein & dietary fiber.

Unfortunately there are no natural vegan foods that are anywhere near as high in protein and low in fat and carbs as some lean animal products are.
