I am not strictly vegan or vegetarian, but I guess I should be...I am looking for recipes and suggestions on getting a complete protein w/o soy and w/ proper food combining. I am trying to avoid - because I am sensitive to soy, corn, gluten, casein, safflower oil, some nuts. How much rice : beans, etc. is needed. Whey is o.k. but how do you use it? How many g / day?
It is interesting to read about the views of combining foods like rice and beans for protein - and how the views on these have changed over the years. If you are also working to avoid soy and gluten and some nuts- is it because of an allergy or preference?
Some people who have difficulty tolerating soy as in tofu - can digest it well in other forms that have been fermented like Tempeh - or in TVP because of the temperature it has been prepared at -
It may be a good idea to get an appointment with a dietitian if you have many allergies - to be sure you are covering all your bases. As a vegan I don't use Whey - but then again - I use soy and wheat gluten, nuts and beans - and that works for me, and may not for you.
