I highly recommend buckwheat and quinoa. They're both really amazing foods that are NOT grains--buckwheat is the fruit of the plant, and quinoa is the seed. They both are complete proteins and contain an awesome balance of all 8 amino acids. They're complex carbohydrates, and they don't give you a blood sugar spike.

Basically, they're awesome super-foods and will help get your protein levels up.
