Q & A About a Vegetarian Diet

Q: Will I be able to meet my protein needs with a vegetarian diet?

A: Animal products are not the only source of protein. Many plant sources contain protein as well. Protein is found in grains, nuts, seeds, beans, and several vegetables. If a variety of foods are consumed and caloric needs are met, it is possible to meet protein needs with plant sources.

Q: What will I eat?

A: Eating a variety of foods works best to meet your daily nutrient requirements. Use "My Plate" to map out your food choices. Try to get at least:

  • 6 servings of grains,
  • 3 to 5 servings of vegetables,
  • 2 to 4 servings of fruit,
  • 5 to 7 ounces of meat alternatives (tofu, beans, tempeh, seitan, etc.) and
  • 2 to 3 servings of milk or other calcium-rich sources.

Q: Will I need to take any supplements?

A: If you are not able meet your daily nutrient needs through diet alone, then a supplement would be appropriate. To find out if your diet is adequate, consult with our registered dietitian.

Q: I'm a vegetarian; where can I eat on campus?

A: We have many vegetarian options. The food courts are a great choice, as they offer a wide selection for vegetarians.

  • The Eat Right locations feature a vegan or vegetarian entrée at least twice a week.
  • Flamingo’s Grill offers regular and egg white omelets with veggies, as well as garden burgers.
  • Stir-fry at Pacific Rim has tofu as a protein option. The Chile Garlic, Sesame, Teriyaki, Chili Oil, and Sweet & Sour sauces do not contain animal products.
  • The Eat Right breakfast bar at Wright, Gresham, and El Bistro offers fresh fruit, low-fat yogurt, homemade granola lightly sweetened with honey, and hot cereal.
  • Edmondson Dining Room at Collins specializes in vegetarian and vegan fare and serves a variety of soups, salads, entrees, and desserts appropriate for the vegan or vegetarian diet.

For more information on vegetarian dining on campus or to provide feedback, contact the RPS dietitian at nutrinfo@indiana.edu.

Q: Will a vegetarian diet help me lose weight?

A: To lose weight, you must use more calories than you take in. Being a vegetarian is not a guarantee for weight loss.
