You don't have to eat red meat. I don't eat red meat and still reach 100-125g of protein a day.
Milk and other low fat dairy Beans/lentils Fish/seafood Chicken, turkey or pork Whole grains nuts/nut butters/seeds eggs/egg whites Even veg has protein in it.
It's hard to give specific advice without seeing your nutrition tracker...
But it usually just comes down to looking for what macro you're high in, what foods you eat that are high in that macro and cutting back on them and replacing them with protein.
Usually it's carbs, we live in a carb-rich society. So cutting back on foods that have a lot of added sugar and refined grains will help. Replace them with veg, legumes/lentils, fruit and whole grains and protein.

I've been trying to add even more chicken, fowl, cheese and eggs but I don't eat red meat.
Pure Protein Bars help me reach my protein goals - 200 calories for 20 grams of protein plus other nutrients and low in fat.

What do you typically eat? And what is your protein range? If you made your tracker public it would be easier to give useful input.
Cottage cheese is a great protein-booster if you can have dairy, low in fat and carbohydrates and packed with nutrients. Other options; fish, tofu, eggs, nut-butter, sandwich-meats, meal-replacements bars, lentils, ect.
If you already have protein with every meal then perhaps just increase the amount, and cut some calories in the carbohydrate or fat department to make room for this in your calorie-budget?
