Default How can I increase my protein intake?

Hi everyone!

I've started using Fitday about a week ago and have since logged in every food I've eaten. I started restricting my calorie intake to 1200 - 1300 cals a day (though I sometimes eat a bit more, sometimes a bit less), but seem to have huge problems getting enough protein. My daily protein intake is usually below 12% which seems way too low. I like eggs, but I could never imagine eating them on a daily basis, same applies to meat. Any advices as to what I should eat to increase my protein intake?

Thanks for your help!!

Best Wishes,
Molly
