I have a really hard time getting enough proteins in my diet. i do not eat meat or fish much. I eat some eggs, yoghurt, beans and lentils. I know they have some proteins. Do you have any suggestions for me - I need some protein-rich food that I can just grab and eat. not much preparations involved. ideas?

I good way is Protein bars. If you find a good brand, they're really good and a great snack. I once had one that tasted just like a Chocolate bar (Thicker and chewy but good). They also had a Strawberry Cream flavor. Anyway, its an easy quick way to get the protein you need. Especially if you're on the go. Also they have the shakes as well. I can't afford to get a lot of beef all the time. And when I had them, it did help out a lot.

I'm not sure where you are - I'm about to go to sleep and can't check - but here in the states we have protein pasta with I think 18 grams of protein which is great. Its uncooked. And in some stores - like Safeway - you can get packaged pasta - microwavable - which is high protein. Their are different kinds - like spaghetti and red sauce and such. Nuts of course are high in protein. My mom is a vegetarian and its important when not eating meat to get complete proteins - the right amino acid combination - like beans and rice and such. I would suggest a trip to the library for a book - or do a search on the web. I have to have a lot of protein as I'm nursing and I supplement my diet with a protein shake, you can make it with fruit for a nice smoothie! Good luck!
