I am having trouble getting my 60+ grams of protein everyday. Other than meat, does anyone have any suggestions?

Try adding protein supplement:powder or drinks. Each scoop of powder protein has about 25 to 28 gr. of protein

I use a whey protein isolate from a health food store. You can mix it with milk or water.

Have to agree, protein powder is the best bang for your buck. You can consume a fairly large amount of protein for few calories. It's quick to drink, and when you find the type you like and blend it with fruit and your favorite beverage or liquid, it can be quite tasty.

I used to use whey protein powder, then I switched to either hemp protein powder or brown rice protein powder. All of these protein powders have great--but different--amino acid profiles. You can do more research on that, if amino acids interest you.

Also, other foods contain protein, so you don't have to eat just meat. I don't eat meat, and I get all my protein from grains like quinoa and oatmeal, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, vegetables, and as mentioned above, protein powder. Some brands of non-dairy milk also add additional pea protein.

Plus there's yogurt, non-dairy for me (coconut milk or almond milk is what's in it), and regular low fat dairy for you. Low fat cheese also has lots of protein. So as you can see, there's tons of ways to get protein besides meat!
