Avocados, Cheese (if you aren't vegan), yogurt, milk, nuts and nut butters, seed butters, home-made hummus/bean dips with tahini in them, cooking with a bit of olive oil, adding ground flax to smoothies and things.
What are you eating now? Do you eat soy products or veggie burgers at all? Nuts are a good source of protein and calories.

You can throw in some potatoes too ... starchy but more calories than other vegetables. Watermelon is fairly high calorie for fruits. Use some more oilive oil in your cooking. It is good for you and high calorie.

You can check my food trackers on my Spark Page to see what I eat (just ignore the two days when I ate a lot of tortilla chips... PMS!). Are you cooking from scratch? What kind of stuff are you cooking? This week I've made a soup with Tofurkey Italian "sausage", spinach and potatoes, and I'm eating that with some Pillsbury biscuits. I'm also going to be making some polenta with broccoli, and serving that with a salad made from black and white quinoa, roasted red peppers, sundried tomatoes and goat cheese. If I haven't cooked lately I can struggle to meet my nutrition needs (see aforementioned tortilla chips!), but once I get cooking it's hard to stop eating well!
I have been on a vegetarian diet for 8 days now, and I am finding it very difficult to get enough calories everyday. I feel full, but yesterday I only got 700 calories. And I refuse to start eating meat again. I don't mind losing the weight, but I am concerned about getting enough nutrition as that is the whole reason I started eating this way, I wanted to get better nutrition.
