Meat Alternative Lean Protiens

dcole | May 22, 2011 01:26 PM

Over the last two years I have significantly reduced the amount of animal products I have been eating, but now that I am working out pretty seriously again, I am realizing that I might need some more protein sources in my diet and don't want to add chicken or meat outside of rare occasions.
My problem stands that I work pretty long hours during the week, and usually cook Sunday for Mon-Wed and then again Wed night for Thurs and Fri. I already eat hummus, dried and roasted edamame, and quinoa quite often. The few ideas I have to add are a grilled and cooled calamari (and other similar seafood) salad, good quality canned sardines, and lentil/bean salads.
Does anyone have some other ideas they could share? Thanks!
