I am seriously considering adding sushi back on the menu?

Question: Now the reason this is in the vegan section is because I am a vegan and have been since Jan 08, the reason I want to add sushi is purely because of the health benefits, while I dont want to I dont really feel tofu and nuts can make up for the limited intake of protein I am getting. I work out alot you see and I dont have nearly as much protein as I should, now I could easily have eggs / protein shakes but I cant stomach eggs and I really hate the taste of protein shakes, plus I cant stomach normal milk so I have soy milk. Any suggestions? I would prefer not to eat fish because of the mercury / killing but something tells me I may have too, baring in mind I have tofu / nuts frequently yet it doesnt seem to enough and I dont 'do' supplements. No flaming please I HAVEN'T decided to eat meat again yet :P and if I were to add sushi I can assure you guys only fish (small amounts) would be added to the menu. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AlPdJk7EixUG8zH7u9x1j07sy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20091119135710AAgPrIy My diet on that question :)

that's truely up to you. I'd recommend looking up exactly how much protein you'd be getting eating it first before you actually do.. just to make sure that the amount of protein it gives you is worth it. Fish is a meat, sorry to tell you that. Beans are a good source of protein and so are things like almonds and walnuts and other nuts. Comparing 100 grams of black dried walnuts, almonds, and wild atlantic salmon.. the walnuts have 24 grams of protein, almonds have about 22 grams and the fish have about 20 grams of protein. All have amazing good for you oils, both of the walnuts and fish have both omega 3 and omega 6. almonds have the omega 6, and all are extremely good for your diet. It all comes down to which you will feel better at the end of the day about. Personally I'd incorporate more nuts and beans in the diet, instead of the fish, since you have been a vegan for almost 2 years already, why ruin that work for a protein source that you can easily get in other places in you look for it.

Are you sure you don't get enough protein? Many people think that our bodies need much more protein than they actually do need, and protein deficiency is very rare in developed countries, even among athletes and vegans/vegetarians. I suggest that you make sure that your problem is actually protein deficiency if you haven't already done so. That said, if you think you need to start eating meat again fish would probably be a good choice. It's healthier than other meat and doesn't have the same bad effects on the environment. You could also try consulting a professional dietist on how to get more proteins from vegetables. You mention nuts and tofu, but there is also textured soy protein, lentils, chickpeas, beans, sesame seeds, oatmeal, spinach and lots of other stuff. Perhaps you just need to plan your meals better? Anyway, good luck!

Seeds you can add to your food are full of protein plus walnuts etc.but am sure you know the basics so look at supplements again,myself I couldnt eat fish or meat but its the guilt trip so Im having meat substitutes & soy milk/spread but cant lay off the cheese-yet.;}

lentils, beans, quinoa, nuts, seeds contain ample amounts of protein. you wouldnt be getting less protein than a pescatarian if you were eating a proper wholefood vegan diet. the only health benefits to eating fish are vitamin D and omega 3, and thats only oily fish - mackerel, salmon, sardines, herring. if you do decide to eat fish i recommend you buy fish heads as they are a bi product, usually thrown away, so dont contribute to the deaths of more fish. you can sometimes get them for free, otherwise they are sold very cheaply. you can mince them (put them through a twin gear juicer without either plate in, or use a grinder) and then make the mince into burgers or breaded fillets, or stirfry/pie/stew/whatever. or you can chop the heads up, add to water with 1tbs cider vinegar, heat at a low temperature for a long time, and make them into stock. then strain and blend the solid bits with veg to make soup.

You shouldn't be lacking protein. There are plenty of vegetarian/vegan athletes.. honestly, I think you'd have to starve yourself to lack protein. Just try different mixes of shakes, have a spinach salad.. Honestly, what youre lacking might be iron.. try taking a supplement. :)
