What is a Lacto-ovo Vegetarian Diet with protein?
Lacto-ovo diet relies primarily on grains, vegetables, fruits, legumes (dried beans, peas and lentils), seeds, nuts, dairy products, and eggs. It excludes any meat, fish, poultry and any products that contain these foods. Therefore, eggs are considered one of the primary sources for protein in a lacto-ovo diet.
An egg contains approximately six grams of protein. A great way to get more protein in your diet is to eat eggs as part of your morning meal. Scrambled eggs and toast are a great way to start off your day.
