Should I be worried about getting enough protein on a vegetarian/vegan diet and what non-meat products can I eat to get protein? Thanks

Of course I'm not a nutritionist or doctor, so I can tell you that generally getting enough protein is very easy on a veg*n diet, and that generally most people eat way more protein than is necessary.

I get my protein from:Soy products, like: Tofu, Edamame, Soy milk, Soy yogurtSeitan (a wheat gluten product)Meat substitutes that are either soy or wheat gluten basedBeans, particularly black beans or cannelini beans, which are my favoritesNuts, particularly cashewsPeanut Butter

I'd look up Jack Norris RD, who is a registered dietician who writes a lot about vegan nutrition online.
