Most plant-foods (vegetables, legumes, nuts/seeds) have far more protein *per-calorie-consumed* than most people think (it's actually close/equal to meat, *per calorie consumed*). So, if you are eating enough whole foods daily in good variety to meet the basic calorie needs of your body, then you are getting enough protein. It's that simple. Plant foods tend to have less-optimal amino acid (protein) profiles for humans than animal-products do, which is the reason why you have to eat a varied diet of plant-based foods in order to get all the essential amino acids in proper amounts daily. I personally avoid any food that is made with wheat-family grains, grain-flours/cereal foods, soy, GMOs, refined oils, and refined sugars. That pretty much eliminates all prepackaged food and restaurant-prepared foods, lol. I also avoid all dairy outside of one serving per day of organic plain cultured yogurt. I do eat eggs, but only organic, free-range, cruelty-free ones. The only oils that I use are cold-pressed/raw virgin oils (I prefer coconut). The bulk of my plant-based diet is lots of different fresh vegetables (raw and cooked), whole fruit, certain legumes (chickpeas, green peas, and green beans), quinoa (a protein-rich seed food marketed as a "whole grain"), and raw/dry-roasted nuts/seeds.
