Well, off the top of my head, without actually checking my books, I'd say meat, eggs, legumes, seaweed, fish, broccoli.
Lean meats, fish and poultry, eggs, dairy, quinoa (all complete sources of protein - all 8 essential amino acids contained)
Beans, lentils, legumes, nuts, seeds (all incomplete sources of protein - not all 8 essential amino acids contained)
I've written a hub about good protein sources...
The absolute highest foods in protein per 100 calories include first egg whites, then shrimp and other fish, and certain types of chicken breast.
Alot of foods are "rich" in proteins.
You want to make sure you are consuming foods that have protein containing the 8 essential ammino acids i.e.animal proteins and soy.
You want to make sure you are ingesting easily assimilated protein.
As a powerlifter and personal trainer for almost 40 yrs, I'd suggest eggs and dry powdered milk (whey.)
Stay away from beef.
Eat chicken, fish, beans and rice...etc.
Go to Google for foods rich in protein and combinations of vegetable proteins that when combined create "complete" protein.
nuts anyone? Best in who's eyes and under what conditions?
Um, didn't you just write a whole hub about this? This wouldn't be a thinly veiled attempt to sucker some of us into reading it, is it?
Turkey is the BEST food for protein. It is 83% protein and 17% fat. It is also the leanest meat (with the exception of fish).
Fish is also massively high in protein with very low fat content - also very high in Omega 3 fats.
sure avocados are very high in protein.
I'm a nutrition therapist. Actually, avocados are not high in protein. They're very high in monounsaturated fats, though. Check out any food at the USDA food database at http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/. It tells you which nutrients are in which foods. The best sources of protein are:
(All preferably organic)
-meat, fish, poultry (especially grass-fed, wild caught, pasture raised)
-beans (black, pinto, garbanzo, etc.)
-nuts & seeds
Hi Cecilia, yes, Do you get to eat those in NY? like say what veggies do you eat there?
Actually, this is incorrect. Avocado and broccoli, while possessing excellent nutrition, are NOT high in protein.
Many foods are high in protein especially cheese.
It usually depends on what ratio of fat to protein you are looking for. Take meat for example, it is generally equal in volume of protein to fat, where as fruit has little fat and little protein. Fat is defined as softener, so natural oils in foods count as fat bases.
For optimum health: make sure you have an equal healthy dose of protein-fats, else the sugars in food cannot work correctly, the vitamin and minerals will not dissolve in your body, leaving you hungry again and unhealthy.
You need the protein-fat interaction to assist in "burning" the sugar w/ your bodies acids.
Protein and fat allow the process to flow instead of fast burn or no burn at all, while extracting nutrients.
Fiber removes excess product from your system.
Your food tip for today.
James aka Mr Foodicle.
Eggs are an excellent source of high-quality protein -- especially from cage-free, organically raised chickens.
Another excellent source is cottage cheese.
For a plant-based source of protein that has all 8 essential amino acids, try quinoa.
plant based highest source of protein is Buckweat/kasha i wrote a hub about it too.
people, people are very rich in protein.... oops wrong thread lol.
eggs, chicken, fast food, pizza, pasta, milk, fish, beef, all meats provide protein.
Beans are good! Any kind of bean, especially when served with rice which helps form a complete amino acid. If you don't like rice, serve beans with milk which does the same thing.
Here is a pretty good link about high quality protein.

Incidentally, avacados are a good source of healthy fats, when eaten in moderation. They are not known to be a good source of protein.
@qwark: I didn't realize you are a fitness and bodybuilding guru. I think that's very admirable. I'm glad to know more bits and pieces about you.
Here's one that hasn't been mentioned Bee Pollen
I take this as I'm a vegetarian and need a great source of protein.
It also (among many other things) gives you energy, appetite control and is flat out amazing as a source of protein!
Split Pea Soup. Many people don't realize that peas contain a good amount of protein.

What is a vegan protein I can put on a sandwich?I've only recently started adopting the vegan diet, but I'm still sort of stumbling my way through it. One of my favorite things when I ate meat was a sandwich. But I'm not a huge fan of the imitation lunch meat made with tofu. What is something else,...
