Beans, nuts, seeds: All beans, lentils and chickpeas are good sources of protein, as are nuts & seeds. Hemp seeds contain as much protein as any food and it is a "complete" protein rich in essential fats. Quinoa is the highest protein grain. Seitan from gluten is also high in protein. While nuts and seeds do have some fats, these are relatively healthy fats. See <a href="<a href="http://www.Vrg.Org/nutrition/protein.

Any lean meat.: Any grilled or baked fish, poultry, pork, or beef that is lean. Those are the best to start with. Do not use breading. It contains carbs and drags extra fat into your diet.
