Greek yogurt has tons of protein & mixed w/ Kashi GoLean Crunch cereal ups it even more. I have this for breakfast sometimes, but I don't see why you couldn't have it for lunch - maybe throw in some berries too.

Nuts, seeds, soy products, cereal, eggs and dairy are all good meatless protein choices. These groups of food each contain different amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) and different levels of protein quality. Here is an article that provides more details.

In spite of its fat, nuts & seeds are good sources, but they need to be weighed &/or measured so you don't just eat 'a handful' & call it a serving.
