How to Make Pei Wei Tofu

Meeting protein needs - vegan and gluten-free

The plan below provides about 70 grams of protein per day. Depending on the protein or energy requirement, this basic plan is supplemented and the food quantities are increased.

As already explained above, this plan is of course expanded with vegetables, fruits, salads, sprouts, etc.

If a protein shake made from rice, hemp or pea protein is also drunk, the amount of protein increases even further (by 10-16 grams).

With this amount of protein, the protein needs of a person who weighs up to 78 kilograms can be met - vegan and gluten-free. She then consumes 0.9 g of protein per kilogram of body weight. A person who weighs up to 88 kilograms will get 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight with this plan.

The amount of protein per kilogram of body weight is based on normal weight. If you were overweight, the protein requirement is calculated using the desirable normal weight.

High-protein quinoa breakfast - vegan and gluten-free

Heat 2 cups of oat or rice milk in a saucepan, add 1 cup of raw quinoa and a little (tip of a knife) sea salt and simmer at medium temperature until the quinoa has absorbed the milk (approx. 15 minutes). Take the saucepan off the heat and stir in the peanut butter.

Add other ingredients as desired, e.g. B. vanilla, grated lemon peel, cinnamon and a little honey or another healthy sweetener of your choice.

If you use rice milk from Natumi, no sweetener is required, as the milk has a wonderful natural sweetness.

Now you can fold in fruits, e.g. B. Berries, chopped pineapples, grated apples, etc.

Instead of oat or rice milk, you can also use coconut milk (mixed 1: 1 with water). In this case, sprinkle desiccated coconut over the cooked quinoa.

Dried fruits can also be cooked or added afterwards, which also means that no sweetener is required.

The quinoa breakfast can also be packed up and only eaten in the office in the late morning by those who do not like to have breakfast early.
