If you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian, try to include milk and dairy products with most of your meals. Also try to eat eggs three to four times a week. Ideally, eggs should be poached or boiled rather than fried in butter or oil. If you're a vegan, make a point of eating soya mince, tofu, legumes such as beans, peas, lentils and chickpeas or nuts at every meal. These foods should also form part of your diet if you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian.
