When I first started on Soy Milk I couldn't stand it. It was far to rich and 'creamy' for my liking. I told a Dietitian this, and she suggested a particular brand which was (is) lighter than the others. Initially I used it on my Rolled Oats in the morning, then put a little into my (substitute) coffee, then it went into my cup of tea. I make mornay sauces, Rice Pudding and custards with it, too. I allowed myself to get used to it gradually. However, having said that, I can't STAND it as a drink on it's own!! As far as brands of yoghurt are concerned, I live in NZ so our brands are different, but I get a good quality one that has whole-grains in it too - ones like quinoa, brown rice, pearl barley and oats.
Canned Salmon and sardines are a great source of Calcium and protein. Just make sure that you eat the bones. If you make a soup or stews, include bones - chicken, or beef bones, making sure that the beef bones have been chopped by the butcher, because they will leach calcium into the cooking liquid.
Have you sought the help of a Registered Dietitian? If not, you might find it a good idea to ask your Dr for a referral to one, and take some printouts from your Nutrition Page to help her see if you are getting what and how much you need for protein, calcium, etc.
