22 High-Protein Meatless Meals Under 400 Calories
Vegetarian eating isn’t for everyone, but if you’re trying to eat less meat OR you’re going meatless for the long haul, getting enough protein is super important.
Of course, how much protein you need differs from person to person depending on your size, activity level, and whatever your health and fitness goals might be. For these meals, we aimed for at least 15 grams as a good place to start when you’re cutting meat (aka a big source of protein) out of your diet.
Also worth noting is that the 400-calorie limit here is mostly arbitrary: The goal is to show that you can be mindful about portion sizes, if that’s your thing, but still get the protein you need to function and feel good.
