Allergic to Soy...

I am allergic to soy and I often find that I go through phases when I don't desire to eat meat. I have never really liked the taste of beef and pork...and I get bored with chicken. Recently I found I am not able to eat cooked salmon. I know, it's weird. I eventually realize I'm tired or just not feeling myself and usually sure enough it's been like 4 days that I haven't consumed any "meat" products. Any suggestions for alternatives other then nuts, beans and broccoli? Any non soy alternatives? I've been boiling eggs and just eating the whites. Is that ok? Do I need to limit how many a week I can eat? (like I might eat 3 egg whites in a day)

I believe the minimum RDA for women is 50g protein a day, so think about tracking your intake against that guideline.

Egg whites are fine - it's the yolk that has all the dietary cholesterol, which is bad for some but okay for others. Your 3-whites-a-day habit is only about 50 calories, all from protein (12-13g).

Cheese has the same amount of protein per ounce (7g) as meat. Softer cheeses like mozzarella and feta have less fat/calories than hard ones like cheddar and swiss.

An 8-oz glass of skim milk has 8g protein.

Pick up some flavored whey powder and shake up half a scoop with 4-6oz water or milk for a quick hit - usually 9g protein for 40-50 calories, plus the milk calories if you're mixing it with that. You can also mix it into smoothies.

Pasta has a surprising amount of protein: 7g in a 2oz (dry weight) serving.

Kashi cereals have a protein kick, like 12-18g per serving. Check the box though - not sure if they use soy sources in their products. Look at cereals that make low-carb claims, because they'll have a lot of protein in them.

seitan is made from flour and flavored with herbs and spices. you can make your own, it's very simple. check out the link. what about other types of fish? there is also a product called "quorn" which is actually a fungus (not ewww! mushrooms are fungi!) and it is also very versatile as far as how you can prepare it.
