HCG Recipes For Vegetarians March 14 2012, 0 Comments
Phase 2 HCG Recipe
From time to time we receive questions asking if the HCG Diet works for vegetarians. Today I want to address what substitutions can be made for vegetarians and what a typical "vegetarian HCG day" would look like.
Dr. Simeons, founder of the HCG Diet, recommends substituting 1/2 cup non fat cottage cheese or non fat plain yogurt without sugar for the protein in your meal. Another protein substitution for the vegetarian dieter is a Jay Robb whey protein shake or one egg yolk and 3 egg whites in place of meat.
Here's a sample of a vegetarian HCG day:
- Breakfast: Tea or coffee and half of a grapefruit
- Lunch: Jay Robb Protein Shake with a vegetable and melba toast
- Dinner: 1 egg yolk and 2 egg whites with an apple, a vegetable and two grissini breadsticks
If you are on maintenance and need a "steak day", you can make substitutions. Substitute the steak for a non flavored pea protein burger and bind it with Tofutti sour cream, olive oil and seasonings. As a vegetarian HCG dieter including B12 with your diet is important.
