Vegetarian protein sources to include in your pre-wedding diet

These will curb your late-night cravings!

Protein as a nutrient is very important in our diets. And while there are several non-vegetarian options as well as protein shakes available, many people believe that there are not enough options available for vegetarians. This is not true though. 

Including protein sources in your pre-wedding diet is very important because it helps control your cravings, increases your metabolism, and keeps your blood pressure in check. 

If you’re a vegetarian and looking for protein options, here are a few! 

Tofu and tempeh

Tofu and tempeh are made from soybeans and are versatile protein sources. They can be stir-fried, grilled, baked, or added to soups and stews.


Lentils, chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans, and other legumes are rich in protein. They can be cooked and added to soups, stews, salads, or made into veggie burgers.


Quinoa is a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids. It can be used as a base for salads, mixed with vegetables, or served as a side dish.

Nuts and seeds

Almonds, walnuts, pistachios, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and flaxseeds are all good sources of protein. They can be eaten as snacks, added to salads or smoothies, or used in baking.

Greek yoghurt or plant-based yogurt

Greek yoghurt or plant-based yoghurt, such as soy or almond yoghurt, are protein-rich options. They can be consumed on their own or added to smoothies, sauces, or desserts.

Eggs and dairy (if you consume them)

If you include eggs and dairy in your diet, they are excellent sources of protein. Eggs can be prepared in various ways, and dairy products like Greek yoghurt, cottage cheese, and cheese are protein-rich options.

Remember to consult with a nutritionist or dietitian to determine the appropriate protein intake for your specific needs and goals. They can provide personalised guidance based on your dietary preferences and any specific requirements you may have.
