I have been making a lot of lentils. I like them, they can go in just about everything and they are a huge boost in protein. I of course focus on all areas of my health and am not only concerned with getting enough protein, that just seems to be the one area of my diet that was not on track. Thanks for all the suggestions too! There are some good ones!

I've been a vegetarian since I was 17 and I've had a good time with it. I never bothered with too much protein but now I am trying to mend my ways. Quorn products are super low fat and high protein, but you mention you don't want to add to your food bill. When they go on sale, they are usually a bargain. The un-breaded "naked" cutlet variety boasts 11 grams of protein and just 80 calories. You can eat 2 of them for lunch. I like them chopped up on a salad. Also, if you buy your own protein powder, you can make your own protein bars. I plan to do that soon. There's lots of recipes online, varying from simple to complex. Those are my suggestions. Everyone else said all the other great things I could think of.

Low-fat tofu dogs and burgers (check the label because some of the prepared burgers are high in fat and calories). Tofu "yogurt" (from the Everyday Happy Herbivore cookbook) is also high in protein and low in fat. Would really appreciate some more ideas!

Pumpkin seeds are especially high in protein, low in calories and fat

Pepitas already shelled pumpkin seeds.. An ounce has 8 Grams of protein making them a smart snack or salad addition.

Combine different types of plant proteins to ensure that you get all the amino acids that you need...quinoa and kasha which are extremely high in protein...Kasha can be found in the ethnic foods section of your grocery store.....

Barley has soluble and insoluble fiber and has more fiber than oatmeal and is good protein, but oatmeal is good protein too! Flaxseed helps curb hunger and is a source of protein and fiber...It is said that a handful of sesame seeds contains more calcium than what a glass of milk contains....a healty choice too as they have many valuable nutrients.

Do you eat eggs/dairy? Greek yogurt and cottage cheese are both good low-fat sources of protein, as well as eggs and egg whites. Many grains have a decent amount of protein per serving. Steel-cut oatmeal, couscous, quinoa (technically not a grain, but whatever!), even whole grain pastas are decent sources. And if you're eating a lot of veg, that couple grams per serving adds up too.

I was vegetarian for years, sadly it wrecked my health completely but that is different story. I ate a lot of eggs, tempeh (make sure your soy is non GMO if your going to eat it) and organic tofu. You can also get protein from a lot of vegetables including broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, asparagus ...

Hello,

I was wondering what you all are finding in the way of high protein, low fat and vegetarian foods? Its been hard keeping my protein up and the fat in line, I either go under for protein or over in fat.

I like beans, and I eat a lot of beans, but I am not sure that I could add more to my diet.

I am not looking to increase my grocery bill either.

I do a protein supplement also, though not everyday.

I like to cook and I love to try new things,so if you have any recipes, you could send those along too! (Especially if you make your own seitan!)

I would love to hear any suggestions!
