I eat beans of all kinds some like lupine, have 22 g protein per 1/2 cup! Cremini mushrooms have good protein, edamame, chic peas. My problem was going without the dairy as its the second most inflammatory food next to gluten. Chia seeds and quinoa have protein. You only need 60 g protein a day so its not too hard to get to. I do use a vegan protein powder in my smoothies to help. My go to protein was cottage cheese as it was low calorie in the no fat version. Miss that..

Sorry to be so late to the discussion, but I was wondering is you've learned how to work with the limitations of a vegan diet and get enough healthy proteins? Please let me know, since I'm a vegetarian and that's also a concern of mine.

I've recently discovered that I can buy a lb of roasted pistachios at this one store (QFC) for only $9.99, in the bulk bins. That's a better deal than what I've been buying. I would prefer raw, unsalted pistachios, but they don't have that.

I eat a boiled egg each day for breakfast, and later in the day I might have more and I also have some dairy sometimes. And I eat the frozen protein that they make, because my mom buys that. Oh, and I have plans to eat lentils each day for lunch. Lentils are really good for you, and contain iron!

I have been a lifetime vegetarian, but my Naturopath wanted me to go vegan for healing and I am struggling to get the protein in without raising the calories and carbs through the roof. I have been at goal weight for almost seven years -coming up this November and hang out here because I have made some great friends and their journeys are still ongoing. One of my friends with RA healed herself with a low carb diet. I eat everything organic and was into raw food for a while until I discovered I enjoy cooking with coconut oil, gives such a nice flavor to things. I don't use condiments only spicing. Love whole foods!
