Theoretically 50g of raw kidney (blah! what a word) beans. If you include other sources of protein, too (like cereals). Beans have good protein structure, so no difficulties here. Peas, 48g theoretically, but they have slightly less efective protein structure, so combine them with cereals, rice, soymilk or vegetables (like spinach, even potatoes) for greater efficiency. One middle-sized egg = 6g protein, huge egg=9g protein, smal=4g protein. Of course, the ratio protein/fat is much higher with beans.

well if middle sized egg has only 6g of protein then a can of chickpeas should give you more already. They are handly because they are tasty cold as well (i'm showing my bad cooking credentials here again). I think can of chickpeas is usually around 16g of protein, don't have one at hand now, sorry...

But there are loads of good ways to enhance salads protein content than just adding beans. Could add nuts as well like walnuts, perhaps have a dressing made from tahini (30% protein, yeah 50% fat as well, but one needs their good fats!) and so on. Perhaps more gifted people could give more examples as well :)

Tofu would be brilliant as well of course.

But usually it is not possible to do a clear cut 1 to 1 substitutions like that when you take the jump to veganism mate. It's a whole new world and as an athlete it is worth it to change dietary habits more than just with remove/replace way.

Try Protein Factory at http://www.Proteinfactory.com

Currently $4.44 USD for a lb. of soy protein. It has 26g per serving.

They have rice protein as well; however I don't know the values for that (e.g. price and protein content.

Have fun,

Eggs are only cheap because the hens paid for them.

I dont worry too much about protein as long as I eat lots of protein containing foods everyday - I like chickpeas or mixed beans or nuts or seeds or tofu in my salads! Ty quinoa too. All these protein sources are not as concentrated as meats which makes them more digestable and healthier for the body and whats more you often get either or both of slow-releasing complex carbs and healthy fats! Tahini is really good cos of calcium too. Makes nice salad dressings or dip for crudites....

Wow! that place is cheap. I just bought a think of veg protein powder at the foodstore yesterday for $17, and it is probably only a pound or so. That site you listed also has hemp protein...
