For protein, I love greek yogurt, low fat cheese, milk, nuts and seeds, seed and nut butters (but a little goes a long way), hummus, energy bars, and beans with whole grains. I also like tofu.

Protein powder, so not necessary! I'm a vegetarian and get in at least 75 grams every day (I do occasionally eat fish, and when I'm pressed for time or know I won't be home for lunch or a snack, I'll have a protein bar). My protein sources: whole wheat bread and pasta, quinoa, oats, low fat cheese, greek yogurt, peanut butter, almonds, eggs and egg whites, legumes, some greens...I'm probably forgetting something.

Hello! Apologies if this has been asked before, but I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for good protein sources that are NOT meat? I'm not actually vegetarian, but I don't eat much meat, and I find that when I don't, I come in quite a bit under my daily recommended dose of protein. Dairy and carefully applied nuts don't seem to be cutting it. Is it time to break out the protein powder? Other suggestions?

If this topic has already come up (and I'd be surprised if it hadn't!), if someone could direct me to it, that would be awesome. Thanks!
