    Most foods contain some protein. Some more than others. A good breakfast should give you about 20 to 30 grams. A good lunch sandwich with tofu or egg and some nuts should provide another 20 grams or so. A normal vege dinner will make up the balance of what you need in a day. No need for anything fancy or strenuous, just eat sensibly and once you get to recognize what your body needs it will tell you if you are not getting enough of something. Cheers!

    I know for sure that chicken/eggs have a good source. I found a list at www.heartspring.net It tells you the amount of protein and gives you a list of foods containing it.
