MDK.360, try whey protein instead. It tastes pretty good (esp. if you add in some frozen fruit and/or flaxseed) and you can get some high quality protein grams (20+) for about 100 calories. Best of all, no soy.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." -- Aristotle
I have a rice protein shake for breakfast every morning. Its not flavorful but I drink it because soy protein powder messes with my estrogen levels (which is not good for me or anyone). So I limit my soy intake.
Tofu, beans, rice, eggs, quinoa are also other good protein staples. Some of them are high cal like the quinoa, but they are filling.
Hope that helps.
