By the way, I live on vitamins! I eat a high protein diet, and drink a lot of fluids. I am missing all but 15" of my small intestine, so I am missing the areas that absorb the vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy body. I also have to be careful of dairy, grains, and fatty foods, because of "flatulence and diarrhea." Soy products are also NOT my friend! This FAKE MEAT STUFF wreaks havoc on my body!
Increasing my Thiamine, Niacin, Folate, and starting a Rx of 2.5mgAmLODIPine Besylate, has helped my neuropathy in my feet.
The bilateral, sudden onset, neuropathy, in my feet didn't start until after my 2nd Moderna C-19 vaccine. After the booster(3rd), all my B levels dropped like a bomb, I had horrible fatigue issues, muscle weakness, and my dormat Reynauds in my hands, went crazy!

Hi. I have severe GERD, and can't eat meat or even some fish like salmon. 99% of the fake meat I've checked the nutrition labels on (because I'm always looking for something I can eat) are *loaded* with fat. I can eat a couple of Morningstar Farms products, and BOCA original burgers.

Most of my protein comes from beans and TVP. More recently, because I've developed diverticulosis, I find I can only eat white beans, because they have some of the thinnest skins. I also find that the TVP, which is made from soy, bothers my GERD. So instead of soy products, I've started trying out wheat based fake meat I'm finding on Amazon. So far, my Gerd isn't affected by them.

I also can drink Carnation Instant Breakfast Light Start. I can also drink Muscle Milk Zero powder. Both mixed with fat free skim milk, and sometimes I add ice or frozen fruit to make it more like a milkshake or smoothie. I also keep a couple cups of Oikos (zero fat) yogurt in the freezer, and I'll throw one of them in too.

Also aged cheese like feta and also aged cheddar. I can't touch provolone or mozzarella, but those aged cheeses I can eat just fine.

These are just some things I've found I can tolerate to get some protein. Hope you can get some ideas to try that are soy alternatives for protein.

Best wishes to you that you find some solutions and relief soon.
