hi.. i'm not sure if this is the right forum for my question. and if i am on the wrong forum, i'd appreciate it if you tell me which forum i should post on.
ok here is the question:
my mom forces me to eat school lunch and i hate it. she said '' i will not cook for you. you should get food at school''. so i decided to only eat vegetables and fruits since it doesn't require cooking.
fruits and, veggies is a good start..you will be ahead of your friends but, you will also need some protien..cottage cheese, peanut butter, meat,..yogurts, milk..cheese..
i think you'r at the right place, we can help you..
Realleh, Unless you are intending to be a vegan vegetarian, you should not be living soley on fruits and vegetables. This is not healthy for a growing teenager. You need to get adquate amounts of protein in your diet - and you typically will not get this from just fruits and vegetables.
Protein sources include meat, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy (milk, cheese), legumes (beans and nuts). You need to make sure these foods are included in your diet, preferrably at every meal. Whole grains (rice, wheat, oats, etc)do include protein, but alone will not provide as much as you need.
It is not clear from your post if you are referring only to the lunctime meal or if your parents are refusing to provide cooked meals for you at all. If you are not getting proper nourishment at home, I recommend that you speak to someone (a nurse, teacher, etc) at your school and let them know that. They may be able to help.
The answer depends on what you eat for breakfast and dinner at home.
If you have good balanced meals at home, then, of course, a diet of only raw fruit and vegetables for lunch is just FINE, probably better than the school food.
If ALL you eat are fruits and vegetables you have to fashion an elaborate vegan plan to make sure you are getting the nutrition you need.
Teenagers need protein for growth, moreso then at any other period in their lives and an all vegetable diet can be VERY deficient in protein unless great care is taken with choices.
What DO you eat for protein? Like zip said, if you eat protein at breakfast and dinner then you should be fine. You can try adding yogurt or milk to the mix at lunch. Or, invest in a good protein shake!
