Being a healthy vegetarian is not difficult, it just takes some interest in educating yourself about getting the right protein, fat and carbs. I cook with lots of lentils, beans, quinoa and loads of veggies. I don't eat to many fake meat products, I also love tofu but only a couple times per week.
I'm looking forward to making some black bean soup later this week!
