It%26#039;s actually a healthier lifestyle to be a vegetarian and vegan. It is scientifically proven vegetarians live 6-10 years longer, I don%26#039;t think that an unhealthy diet would make you live longer. Here is a huge list of all the things with protein. If you eat this type of stuff all day, you%26#039;ll probably be getting more protein then you did when you ate meat (which is once or twice a day).

*Eggs and Dairy*

Egg, large - 6 grams protein
Milk, 1 cup - 12 grams
Cottage cheese, ? cup - 15 grams
Yogurt, 1 cup C usually 8-12 grams, check label
Soft cheeses (Mozzarella, Brie, Camembert) C 6 grams per oz
Medium cheeses (Cheddar, Swiss) C 7 or 8 grams per oz
Hard cheeses (Parmesan) C 10 grams per oz

*Beans (including soy)*

Tofu, ? cup 20 grams protein
Tofu, 1 oz, 2.3 grams
Soy milk, 1 cup - 6 -10 grams
Most beans (black, pinto, lentils, etc) about 7-10 grams protein per half cup of cooked beans
Soy beans, ? cup cooked C 14 grams protein
Split peas, ? cup cooked C 8 grams

*Nuts and Seeds*

Peanut butter, 2 Tablespoons - 8 grams protein
Almonds, ? cup C 8 grams
Peanuts, ? cup C 9 grams
Cashews, ? cup C 5 grams
Pecans, ? cup C 2.5 grams
Sunflower seeds, ? cup C 6 grams
Pumpkin seeds, ? cup C 19 grams
Flax seeds C ? cup C 8 grams

I am a vegan and eat no eggs, dairy or meat. You need to get educated and have your mom help to get educated also, before you decide.

I get my protein from lots of beans, 1/8 cup of nuts and or seeds daily, peanut butter and lots and lots of whole grains.
A perfect example is a salad, but you add one of those tiny cans of garbanzo beans or kidney beans into it after rinsing them. A good snack is a piece of whole grain bread with peanut butter on it. Toss some sesame seeds on your salad. Eat split pea soup, 13 bean soup, lentils, etc., daily.

Yes you can get lots of protein from the sources you mentioned. Don%26#039;t forget lentils and legumes (various beans) have lots of protein as well. There is no problem getting enough protein from non-meat sources as long as you are thinking about it.

There is a potential problem with iron though. Women need more iron than men and many young women vegetarians don%26#039;t get enough iron without eating red meat. The real concern here is to make sure that you get enough iron. It can be done but you have to research that a bit.

(btw - I%26#039;m about 90% vegetarian which tends to make everybody upset. The hard-core vegetarians hate me for eating any meat and meat eaters think I%26#039;m strange for not eating meat every day. I go for long periods without eating any meat but I do eat it once and a while. I%26#039;m a large muscular athletic male and I get plenty of protein even when I don%26#039;t eat meat.)

It%26#039;s a nutritional myth that you have to eat muscle to make muscle. Vegetarians who eat fish, dairy products, and/or eggs get plenty of protein, and even a strict vegan can get enough protein by eating enough grains and legumes, which provide a feeling of fullness, along with the necessary quantity and quality of protein. There%26#039;s no need to worry about vegetarian children getting enough protein. Each day, for example, preteens can get all the protein they need from an egg, a peanut butter sandwich, a couple glasses of milk, a cup of yogurt, or a black bean burrito.
Some people believe that vegetarians must combine incomplete plant proteins in one meal like red beans and rice to make the type of complete proteins found in meat. We now know that it%26#039;s not that complicated. Current recommendations are that vegetarians eat a wide variety of foods during the course of a day. Eggs and dairy products are good sources of protein, but also try nuts, peanut butter, tofu, beans, seeds, soy milk, grains, cereals, and vegetables to get all the protein your body needs.
