I'm terrible at getting enough protein in my diet. So here is a trick that I learned: When fixing ANY meal, add 1 cup of unsalted, unroasted pine nuts when you're cooking! It contains 18 grams of protein, they're virtually tasteless, and they add a unique texture to your meal.
*The 18 grams is per 1 cup, I usually add .5 cup per serving to the dish I am making. Otherwise it can get overwhelming. All dishes I've used: Pasta, wraps, salads, hamburgers, chili, any soup, green beans, tacos, cereal, and oatmeal. You can use other nuts too but I find that pine nuts work better
