Thanks so much for the great protein ideas and also the article. Some I knew about and some I didn't. I keep forgetting about cottage cheese.

I have looked for Tempeh but couldn't find it where I grocery shop. I will look again. Actually have never had it before.

Thanks again for taking the time to respond to my question!!!

I'm a vegan and I love Tempeh for protein. It's the main "meat" substitutes on the rare occasion I use them. It is made from fermented soybeans. 3oz has about 160 calories, 15 g of protein, 9 grams of carbs and very little fat. It is delicious.

broccoli, greens like kale/collards/spinach/cabbage, all sorts of legumes/beans...

I am a BIG beans eater. Tons of protein there, plus fiber. I'd look into dairy. Yogurt, cheese, milk, heck even whole wheat noodles has a decent amount of protein.

I have been a vegetarian for nearly 7 years. No meat or fish at all. Now that I am watching all my food intakes, I am having trouble getting enough protein without overdoing it on the carbs and fat.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can eat without upping the carbs and fat? I should have this down by now, but I don't.
