Question I think today is the day I start, has anybody done this

whilst going light on the cheese/meat?

As a former vegetarian, I'm not sure about eating so much dairy and meat.

I don't mind eggs, some fish or chicken is okay, but I really just don't want to my main source of protein to be meat or dairy. I know I'll be eating loads of eggs. LOL.

I also need menu planning ideas that are quick to prepare. Especially things I can do at work. (grocery store, I can cut things up in the deli, but I can't cook them.)

the on plan thread has been a great source of ideas and inspiration for me. Several people past and present are vegetarian on the plan. Go through get some ideas make your plans. I truly believe planing ahead is a key ingredient in success.

Welcome! I'm not a vegetarian but how about beans and lentils? Quinoa too, but that might be PH2.

I'm a veg-head. The reason I picked this plan was because of how vegetarian-friendly it is. I'd recommend making extras of your dinner to take for lunch at work the next day.

I'll have to do the opposite, since I work nights. I failed today. I started out with two eggs scrambled, 1/2 cup pinto beans, and 2 cups raw broccoli. Taco sauce to make it good. Then forgot by the time we got done with our in town appointments and got BK. So I rounded out the day with two berry pot pies and I'm starting again tomorrow. Got a new flavor of taco sauce. I think that's what is going to keep me sane through these first two weeks. Taco sauce. Please don't tell me it's not allowed.

Carbs don't matter. Post a list of all the ingredients and we'll see if we can pick out any problem-causers.

no hidden sugars, looks good. Salsa is my go to addition. We go through a couple of jars a week. Unfortunately you have to check that for sugar too but I know most of the brands around here now.
