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.

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

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...
