Anything that comes in a shell, like nuts, or most beans. Or try a slim fast shake. Good for vitamins also. I usually drink a couple a week, just because i know i do not eat right all the time. You can also mix flaxseed into many foods. Or a simple protein supplement, just check into them first. Just because the label lists a higher protein amount does not mean our our bodies will absorb it all.

Have you tried tofurky? Don't remember the name but, there are some shakes that are made of veggies and have protein as well. The Vitamin Shoppe has great products on soy protein as well.

Don't over do it on soy products or mock meat products... While there are a lot of good ones now, they are just as bad as processed meats. Do eat a lot of nuts and beans. You're looking for iron if you are anemic , you can get that from dark leafy greens. I take iron supplements from food sources, like new chapter every woman's support.
Tempeh is great, but hard to learn how to cook. I eat a combo of stir fry with tofu, something with beans, a lot of veggies and lentils. I do love the Morningstar fake bacon too! Try quinoa instead of rice you can get iron from that. Check what you actually need in terms of protein vs what you get, you may be surprised that you might be close to what you need.

Shows that have a lot to learn as well. I know stuff to eat but its hard to do it by myself with no other support

Starli B is right, it is iron you need for anemia rather than protein. The NHS website says that good vegetarian sources of iron are beans, nuts, dried fruit, such as dried apricots, wholegrains, such as brown rice, fortified breakfast cereals, soybean flour and most dark-green leafy vegetables, such as watercress and curly kale. They also said that although many people think spinach is a good source of iron, it also contains a substance that makes it harder for the body to absorb the iron from it. Similarly, tea and coffee contain a substance that can make it harder for...

Great post Starli B. 

Samantha, aside from whey protein, you can also purchase plant based proteins such as brown rice protein, pea protein, and hemp protein powders to supplement in your nutrition. You can even find them with no sugar, which is ideal. Let me know if you have any questions!

The protein that I use is designed specifically for people who are skipping meals or need more nutrition in their diet. And it tastes like dessert! You can watch the videos and private message me or just click Join and you will find a lot more information www.90daypersonalmastery.com

My favorite is Pure Green Protein. Good consistency and flavor. Each serving is 20 g of protein and delivers 15 mG of iron as well. Used to use vega protein powders ( which r veg). They r well regarded but their consistency was always too thick for me.

If you have been veg for awhile, your diet probably has good sources of veg protein, but if not, try increasing your protein thru your food intake as well.  Protein sources we like to mix in around here : seiten, tempeh, lentils, beans and nuts.

Your right Erik. Eggs are a great source of protein. Egg whites are very close to being entirely protein.

Hi Sam, try weekly b-12 shots, beet juicing, tomatoes for your anemia and make sure you do your research on GMO's since you are limiting your diet from animal nutrients make sure what you do eat is actually REAL and not made as a science experiment messing with the DNA of your food. Good luck there are many healthy vegetarians that manage to have balance in their diet without any deficiency issues.

Soy protein!!!! Soy beans and for your anemia get iron! Anemia is due to your blood being low in iron

I used to eat meatless hot dogs from Kroger, when I went vegetarian for a while..made from soybeans & had plenty of protein like 20gms. Not bad tasting either.. Spaghetti squash with marinara or Alfredo sauce is excellent. Eggplant lasagna is fantastic, without meat of course hahahaLOL!

Quinoa is a complete protein. Use it in place of other grains. Cooks the same as rice.

I am vegetarian too. I eat a lot of eggs and nuts. Once a week or so I eat tuna but that's it for meat. I tried getting a b12 shot once but my arm was bruised for a week so I stopped that. Quinoa is really yummy if you haven't tried it.

I've been a vegetarian for twelve years and am just starting to find things I actually like for protein. I think quinoa is disgusting and I am nervous to eat too many soy products as they can alter your estrogen levels. My favourites are pinto and black beans (mm black bean burgers!), baked tofu (occasionally), almonds, pistachios, Wowbutter, and once a week I have salmon or a white fish. (I went veg head because I can't stand meat but I still adore fish so it's a big part if my diet!). As for anemia, I was also and ended up having to take an iron supplement for a few weeks and now I find it in a multivitamin, spinach, Nori (i eat a lot of vegetarian sushi lol) and protein powders

There is big problems for the vegetarians that they don't like to eat most of the protein foods which come from the animal.

For the vegetarians there are various veggies protein foods which they can use for their muscles building purposes.

They can eat green vegetables, green beans, nuts, protein shakes etc for getting the natural protein.
