  • beans have protein. Soy as well. When I was a vegetarian I use to take Gelatin supplements to help with that also.

  • look up on the net how to combine foods to make a complete proteins like mixing whole wheat bread with peanut butter makes a complete protein. I just bought a vegan protein powder that I LOVE its chocolate and is made up of rice protein, 22 grams per serving and i mix it wil almond milk. Its called LIFE SOURCE. I workout a lot too and I try to not eat a bunch of meat and dairy.

  • try quinoa, it has the most protein of all the grains just boil it and eat it plain or in salads. Soak ir first so it doesn't give you gas.
