Depending on the type of vegetarian she to substitute meat for protein you can use dairy products which can come from animal or plant sources, such as, milk, rice milk, yogurt, cheese, and rice ice cream. Combination of foods for essential protein have to be used daily such as rice and beans, pasta and beans, nuts to oatmeal, peanut butter and bread, and salad and nuts. Look at www.vrg.org for more information on vegetarian eating. Eat more raw fruits and vegetables for vitamins and minerals. Eat them as snacks or add them to your salads with additional nuts. Vitamin B12 needs to be supplemented if she is a vegan vegetarian. Suggest you go to an Allergist and get tested to really see if your daughter is intolerant to soy. Hope this helped you.
