Chicken, cottage cheese, protein shakes (I use a few different kinds), egg whites, seitan, tempeh, Greek yogurt... and then brown rice and whole grain breads are carbs with a bit more protein

You need about 1 gram of protein for each lb you r, try to get about 25 to 35 grams within a hour if workout done,this base on a weight routines of about 21 sets should be done 30 to 45 minutes as u gain more muscle massĀ  u may increase sets and time but going over a hour may b to much

Yeah when I'm really on top of things with diet and exercise, I'm trying to eat around 15~30 grams of protein every two hours I'm awake. I read the body can't really absorb more than 20g in 2 hours, so I vary my sources and hope for the best in quick and delayed absorption. There's probably a way more scientifically exact way to plan it with different proteins to maximize results but I'm not at that stage.

If u use protein supplements stay away from soy products, eat lean beef,fish,chicken,natural peanut butter no added sugar,Brown rice ok not everyday,it has more arsenic then any other food,sweet potato,beans,and it don't hurt to have some fruits berries r great

I think you mean stay away from soy, BUT those others (lean beef,etc.) are ok.

Potatoes, peanut butter, meat, eggs, and chocolate milk. You have to lift heavy though too.

I have heard that chocolate milk is a good source, but surely it contains lots of sugar?

I've read that it's a good post workout recovery drink. Yeah, too much sugar, not enough protein for anything else.
