Personally I can eat as many beans as the earth can grow but besides that you can eat nuts...seeds... and really anything. All vegetation is packed with the different amino acids but some don't have all of them...if you eat a healthy mix of fruits and veggies you'd be fine...this is why you can thrive on a fruitarian diet or raw diet(which normally lacks in a mass of beans but raw foodists tend to eat a fair amount of seeds and nuts)

If one does not eat soy, (a primary form of protein) what other avenues are there to get the necessary amounts of protein. A person can eat only so many beans per day/week.
Hemp is an excellent source of protein. I like to make hemp protein smoothies for breakfast and/or for a post-workout snack.
Quinoa is high in protein.
Seitan (wheat meat) is very high in protein as well.
Sprouts have a good protein make up.
But most people in the US overestimate the amount of protein one needs. If you eat a balanced, varied diet, you shouldn't have to worry to much.
