Vegetarian diet help
Let me start by saying thank you so much for all your help over the last few months.
Now, I have a question about diet. I'm a vegetarian and am finding it difficult and confusing to find sources of protein that aren't estrogenic. I can only eat so many eggs! I was in love with quinoa, but then read that it might have estrogenizing effects. I've also read that if it's soaked overnight before cooking, it really limits the estrogen effects. Is this true?
Since I'm still having some estrogen dominance symptoms (this is my fourth month on progesterall at 300mg/day), I'm really looking into my diet for estrogen culprits. I do eat a lot of typical vegetarian sources of protein like beans, which I am now finding out can be estrogenizing. Does it help to soak these too?
I try to eat as much raw vegetables as I can every day, but going on a completely raw diet just isn't feasible at this time. I would appreciate any help with this, especially on where to find sources of good protein. Is whey protein a viable option?
