Needless to say, I may be a slight Avocado addict. There’s about 4 grams of protein in each Avocado, so I like to get as much in there as I can without it spilling out my nose of course haha (Omgosh EW I don’t know why I just said that, I totally just got a gross visual of myself eating this sandwich with Avocado coming out my nose… EW!)
Anyway, adding vegetables to your meals when you’re eating out is a great way to sneak in some extra protein. I’ve added in a lot if extra Avocado to my grilled cheese, had it made on wheat bread instead of white (which also has more protein) and substituted a salad for the side of fries.

Vegetarians need to pack in the protein where ever they can, whenever they can!
Try it out- next time you go to a restaurant, add ONE vegetable to your meal. Whether it’s extra tomatoes on your salad, a side of asparagus to your main course or Avocados to your grilled cheese, just start with one.
Every vegetable you add to your diet, gets you one step closer to that fabulous healthy lifestyle you’ve been working so had for.
You can do it!
