Lots of ways: Eggs are one of the best sources of protein. You can also drink protein shakes- either whey -based (from dairy) or vegan-based. Vegan protein shakes contain good quality proteins from sources such as pumpkin, hemp, brown rice, pea, etc. Certain nuts and seeds are also high in protein.
