Vegetarian meals suitable for j-pouch?

Has anyone found a vegetarian option that works for someone with a j-pouch? My husband had his surgery in 2003 and usually needs to eat meat-based protein to make it through the day. The rest of our family eats vegetarian sometimes, and I was hoping to find a meal that might work for everyone. I can't do seeds, nuts, beans, or tofu for him - things commonly offered as protein options in vegetarian recipes. If you have any go-to cookbooks or websites or favorite recipes, I'd love to hear them.

I dont know if you classify dairy as vegetarian. If he's ok with dairy then I'd say yoghurt is the best source to get in some protein. Lentils, spinach , broccoli, peas,chia seeds, quinoa, oats, soyabean/ soymilk is there to get some protein from vegetarian sources. If he's a regular guy with no serious goals then one serving of any of the above will meet daily protein needs. Nut butters are easier on the pouch you can give them a shot too. Start slow and see if it holds.
