1/4 cup [dry] of lentils has 70 cals and 9 g protein and doesn't cook up to much more bulk.
olive oil has 40 cals a teaspoon, which you can cook your veggies in or drizzle on top.

and if you share your tracker or a few typical days, you'll get better suggestions.

-google first. ask questions later.

Fat can be added by ensuring you add oil, nuts or avocados to salads and sandwiches.

Protein sources that aren't meat include beans and legumes, and eggs and dairy.

I'm having a hard time eating the suggested fat and protein amounts on the nutrition tracker. I know I could easily meet these if I just eat more meat, but I'm not a big meat eater. I even come short on the suggested calories for each day, often, too. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, as I eat a LOT of veggies, etc., and healthy foods until I'm full...
