If you’re the type of person who tries to eat a source of protein with lunch and dinner and still find yourself falling short, this post is for you.

Of course, there are amino acids and other important micronutrients that come from high-quality animal meat, but sometimes you just don’t want to eat more of those things — either because you don’t love animal products or have higher protein needs.

The grocery guide below includes everything from higher protein coffee, pasta, cereal, and even snacks made from high protein ingredients, like chickpeas!
