Some people just can't be vegetarian.
I am allergic to nuts and by cross contamination, seeds and dried fruits. I also have a sensitivity to some legumes and am supposed to limit them.
My granddaughter is allergic to soybeans and sensitive to peanuts. She is also allergic to a couple of vegetables and several fruits, and then sensitive to several more by family.

For both of us, it would be nearly impossible to take in sufficient protein to remain healthy. Especially if we are together because we are unable to even be in the same environment as our allergy foods.
