Going to Be Really Hard for Me

I think I am through eating for the day and I haven't reached 70 grams of protein.  I have never in my life eaten that much protein in a day so this is going to be really hard for me.  So far today my # of grams of protein is 26.64, making me short 43.36 grams.  To make up the difference I would have to eat either 154 almonds, 250 frosted mini wheat biscuits, 6 large baked potatoes or 22 cups of green beans.    Heck, I would have to eat 13 tablespoons of peanut butter.  How on earth do vegetarians get enough protein???  I ate beef twice this week to get some protein in me but today I just could  not even think about eating any more beef.  I ate scrambled egg and bacon sandwhiches for lunch and dinner instead.  Since I don't like eggs ... and true vegans don't eat eggs .... I thought I was really doing something but 2 eggs only adds up to 13 grams of protein.  I just can not make myself drink milk.  So .... what are you eating to get all your protein for the day?

I'm curious as to whether you are feeling any warmer? Also, I am no help with your question, I went back to eating meat some time ago; and drink lots of milk.

Make you a meun plan of 3 well balanced meals, and 2 healthy snacks. That should bring your total up quite a lot.
