Protein

There’s really nothing to say about this section, other than that you should pair fruits with any of the safe protein items listed. If you’re living a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, I wish you good luck.

safe
all meat, poultry, and pork (not commercially breaded)
fish (not tinned in sauce)
eggs
flax seed, poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds
vital wheat gluten (unless you’re gluten-free)
tofu

in moderation
soy nuts
soy products other than tofu (tempeh, miso, soy-based imitation meat products, etc.)
peanut butter* (1 tbsp)
nuts other than pistachios or cashews (1 tbsp)

avoid
meat or fish that is commercially breaded
pistachios
cashews

A good substitute for peanut butter is sunflower seed butter, which tastes delicious and doesn’t use peanuts. Almond butter works too if you tolerate nuts. I personally do not, but I know many that do. However, if you can’t have almonds, try peanut butter. Peanuts are legumes, and therefore are in a completely different category than almonds.
