Protein for the vegetarian (or any athlete)

Marni Sumbal

How does a vegetarian athlete get healthy protein in the diet in order to properly recover and feel satisfied at a meal? Oh-and choose to not be 100% organic/natural because she has to stay on a tight food budget in order to pay for rent, animal food, travel, races, school, etc....

What's in my kitchen right now which gives me a little to a lot of protein (no particular order)
Nuts
Seeds
Cereal
Oatmeal
Mushrooms (yep-protein in those)
Veggie burgers
Low carb wraps
High fiber bread
Chickpeas
Corn
Sweet potato
Beans
Tofu
Cheese
Cottage Cheese
String cheese
Eggs (1/2 yolk with every 3 eggs I eat...I go through a lot of eggs/day)
Yogurt
Milk
Natural Skippy PB
Whey protein powder (Body Fortress from Wal-Mart)
