    I don’t like some of the vegetables in your recipes,could I swap them for a low starch alternative in the same list .Ie instead of spinach could I use cabbage or cauliflower without it compromising the weight loss.
    Cheers Janet

    Hi there,

    As far as our example recipes go there are a few suitable options:
    Basil infused tofu bake
    Baked Mediterranean vegetables with cottage cheese
    Pepper mushrooms with chickpeas on rye
    Vegetable and tofu curry
    Red lentil & chickpea stew
    Vegetarian cauliflower & chickpea curry
    Baked stuffed eggplant
    Indian lentil stew
    Black bean soup
    Lentil patties with mustard & vinegar dressing

    Because you are vegetarian and do not eat eggs your choices for protein would be limited to:
    Milk
    Greek yoghurt
    Soft cheeses i.e. Ricotta or cottage cheese
    Hard cheeses
    Legumes and beans (includes hummus)
    Tofu
    You could also try adding in a protein powder (whey or plant derived)

    Kind Regards,

    BT Nutritionist.
