   brewer’s yeast, 3 Tblsp = 1 bread;
   carob flour, 1/8 cup = 1 bread;
   kefir, 1 cup = 1 milk plus 1 fat;
   miso, 3 Tblsp = 1 bread plus 1/2 lean meat;
   sea vegetables, cooked, 1/2 cup = 1 vegetable;
   soy flour, 1/4 cup = 1 lean meat plus 1/2 bread;
   soy grits, raw, 1/8 cup = 1 lean meat;
   soy milk, 1 cup = 1 milk plus 1 fat;
   tahini, 1 tsp = 1 fat;
   tempeh, 4 oz. = 1 bread plus 2 protein;
   wheat germ, 1 Tblsp = 1/2 bread;
   (if used in large amounts may need to add a fat exchange. Speak to
   your dietitian.)
   
   The article also says that vegetarians should treat legumes as 1/2
   protein and one bread, rather than just bread. The author also
   reccomends using low fat, high fiber recipes.
