Info. Post

Hello! My name is Kat, and I have been a vegetarian for about a year and a half. I have been very sucessful with the transition from carnivore -> pollo/ovo -> lacto/ovo in eating all of the proteins I need (all of the essential amino acids).

I would like to make sure I get the top four 'conditionally essential' amino acids in my diet, and I am unable to find direct food sources for two of them. Help?

Tyrosine: cheese.

Glycine: beans, lentils, and legumes.

Are there any more/more efficient ways of obtaining these two amino acids?


This is a simple one, a recipe that my uncle likes to call a 'cowboy breakfast'.

salsa, tortias, lettuce, black beans and rice, graited cheese, guacamole, sour cream, and any others that you think taste good in a torita

Warm the tortias and fill them as you like.

This recipe makes a great quick on-the-go breakfast (premake them so that you refrigerate and microwave them the next day and a quick get away). This also works quite well with pita pockets.
