Fruits and vegetables are always good to add

Fruits are for carbs so your body runs happier. Add in a variety of vegetables. They trend to be low calorie and have vitamins minerals and protein in them. Dark leafy greens are always great to eat

First off, congrats on going Vegan. Second, why are you so worried about protein, and why are you getting it mostly from soy?
More importantly, how big are your servings anyways?
There are many other sources, such as nuts, seeds, and their butters, whole grain bread, sea weeds like spirulina, beans other than soy, nutritional yeast, and even fruits and vegetables.
You can have all these calculated for you from calorie counting websites or apps.

Cause i had a good diet plan as a meat eater , and the only diffrent thing from my meat diet and a vegan diet is the protein sources :) , and i got the mostly from soy cause that was the only vegan protein powder i could find in the store :)(and it is a highvalued protein), cant really find any sea weeds , been looking around and this was just how my day looked , not that my diet is gonna look like this :P just wanted to know if it was solid. ofcourse this is not the only things i ate that day , i had lots of fruits also put the only concern i have is to get a full protein uptake since its not as easy as a vegan as a meat eater. i want to get atleast 160g+ protein a day :)

Ah! Gotchya! Darn, you need a lot of protein. Hmm. Maybe focus on high protein sources, then if they happen to also contain carbs, you'll need less carbs from other sources? Oh hell I don't know what I'm talking about lol, I've never needed that much protein. Check out VeganEssentials, Robert's, or Richard's journal. They all look like big boys that know what they're doing. I'm sure there's plenty more, but I haven't had the pleasure yet.
