If, for some reason, you needed a solid dose of protein and not just wanted to balance all your macronutrients in whole foods...hemp protein powder is also one of the few plant based complete proteins. It's sold in bulk in lots of places, as well. Tossing in some hemp seeds and chia seeds to your regular diet also ups lots of good stuff (she's so scientific) including protein. Other dark leafy greens beside kale have protein, I'm betting. And, as others have said, nuts and seeds...Oh, and beans.

Hi,

i think the one thing a veg never has too little of is protein. I don't eat soy products and my protein is never an issue. I eat seitan and legumes. I also have a hypothyroidism issue and eating edamame was never a problem.

I suggest maybe researching a bit more about protein because alot of people think that you need much more than you actually do.

Have fun

You're worth so much more

Is it possible to ask why you are worried about protein?

Nuts and beans are a GREAT source of protein! You should also incorporate hemp seed and/or hemp milk as well as quinoa into your diet since these are perfect proteins. There are some non-dairy yogurt brands that offer a lot of protein as well.

How about adding a few kinds of nuts and seeds at a time? A sprinkling of sunflower seeds or chopped almonds on a salad, peanut butter sandwich for a snack, almond "milk" on your morning cereal or in your coffee?

I am looking for high protein foods that are not soy based. Due to thyroid condition I need to stay away from soy and Kale, which I was eating. I am eating lots of beans and thinking I might have to add fish which I don't want to do. I am a 20 plus vegetarian on and off vegan.
