Reaching 200g protein/day on mostly veg diet.

Would love some advice or any good ideas I could try.

Please don't quiz me on amount of protein or why I'm doing a part veg diet etc.

    Legumes, vegan protein powder, green leafies, and nuts are all high protein.

    Seitan is my go-to eatable. Otherwise, I'd likely supplement powders. 200 is a lot, but it's do-able. I've eaten that amount of protein on a plant-based diet, but it often requires some extra planning/math to keep carbs from blowing up since they are included in most plant-based proteins.

    Chickpeas, black beans, seeds, nuts, protein powder some of my go to's to help me reach my protein goals everyday.

    I have creative ways of sneaking these items into my foods. Making protein smoothies and stir fry are great ways.

    Also for example with chickpeas I use it as a base for my veggie burgers and I make this choco chip and peanut butter "cookie dough" bar with it. Sounds weird I know, but it's good to me and it helps me to add more calories to my day. And with protein powder I add it to my oatmeal, I make protein bars etc.

    However I do eat farm fresh eggs a couple times per week and make omelettes, french toast, breakfast sandwiches etc. and that helps as well.

    You need to put out more info to get the most out.
    Anyways, beans, legumes, chickpea, nuts are the main vegan ones. But yeah,200 is a lot so would definitely recommend a vegan protein powder.

    Without knowing if by "veg" you mean vegan or vegetarian, or knowing your calorie goal, I'm not going to comment.
