Don't forget your greens such as spinach, kale and others. You would be surprised how much protein is in that. I do a plant based diet and have no problem getting my protein in without dairy and meat.

How about tofu or tempeh? You can get quite a few grams of protein for not too many calories - plus, calcium!
You can blend the softer tofu into things and not even notice it's there (somewhere in my cupboard i have a recipe for tofu pumpkin pie - you would NEVER know!).
I am also a convert to "frozen tofu" - you just cut up the fresh stuff into serving-size pieces, and freeze it. It turns a rather unappealing yellowy-beige colour while frozen, but don't be alarmed! When you thaw it out and squeeze it out, it loses that yellow colour and the freezing/thawing process gives it a chewy spongey texture, which I find more appealing, it also holds together better when cooking.
Do you consider fish meat? Tilapia and mahi mahi fillets and things like that are very high in protein, low-calorie and very versatile.

I have having a problem getting enough protein in my diet. The only meat I will eat is organic chicken. I love raw nuts but they are packed with a lot of calories. I also love hard white cheese. Any ideas would be greatly appreciate d.
