Weight Loss: 5 Protein-Rich Salads Vegetarians Must Add To Their Diet


When we imagine protein-rich foods, we immediately think of chicken, mutton, and other types of meat. However, as vegetarians, we cannot include these protein sources in our weight loss diet. We've all learned in school that proteins are the building modules of life, so including them in our daily diet is essential. But how can vegetarians get the same amount of protein as meat eaters? By eating more high-protein vegetarian foods! Losing a few kilos is always difficult, but losing weight without losing strength is even more difficult. In that spirit, we've compiled a list of high protein, vegetarian salads that may aid in your weight loss efforts.
