If you are a serious about fitness or building muscle then chicken is probably your number one choice for protein.
If you do like to prepare Chicken yourself I strongly recommend that you don't buy it from your local supermarket as the quality isn't as high as many alternatives such as your local butcher or many of the new online fitness food websites. FoodSize – What 25g of Protein from Grilled Chicken Breast and Edamame (Whole Soy) Looks Like! When working with clients that had eliminated animal proteins from their diets, the number one task for me is to assemble a diet that meets their daily need, including total I know people who eat soy products. It’s common knowledge that human beings must have protein to maintain a healthy diet, but there is some confusion about which sources are best. So as you can see, in terms of protein and overall well-being, soy is not a good alternative to getting protein, good quality chicken is far superior. I try to eat balanced food, over all vegetarian, with milk and eggs and some times poultry.
I thought I had been going barmy when I first looked at it- before remembering I eat 100g of chicken for my dinner and occasionally swap with 50g of bean omelette! OK, 100g of chicken DOES NOT equal 530kcals unless its heavily fried (which doesn;t look like it on your picture.
I was veg of choice but in trying to eat poultry and meats again, I get very sick, ibs and such so it seems my body dictates it now! Protein is the building blocks of cells, the catalyst for different cellular reaction, and has a multitude of other functions. And of course, many other things eaten along with these animal products are most likely also chock full of protein, upping your intake of protein even more. Even if one food has 2 grams of protein, when you add up all the different sources of protein throughout a day, you've well reached the limit.

I was thinking about 25g per small-medium sized chicken breast would be pretty close to actual value, but i'm not sure.
Between chicken breast and edamame, the picture clearly shows that you need less chicken to achieve the daily requirements for protein.
An organic chicken that eats insects, grubs, and seeds (not corn), will have all of the essential amino acids. Soy has many different proteins, however, 28 of those proteins in soy bind to (2)IgE antibodies and is therefore highly allergenic. Following a diet similar to that our Paleolithic ancestors, you will be assured of a hypo-allergenic diet and sufficient amounts of quality protein. Would have loved to see some suggestions on what kinds of protein sources would work for a veg or 80% vegetarian.
I personally eat quite a lot of soy and now it looks like i must substitute a bit of that with chicken more often. Stick around for tomorrow when I'll teach you how to make different types of seitan from start to finish, seitan so perfect that your carnivore husband will be begging for more and won't believe you that it is not really meat. The phytates in soy also block the absorption of vitamins and minerals, contain high-levels of phytoestrogens (which is especially not good for men or children) and have protease inhibitors (3) that prevent the absorption and digestion of protein. Read more in my previous post about how adding fats to your diet helps you lose weight and makes your bean meals more filling. Of course skinless chicken is better than chicken coated in breadcrumbs or batter so keep away from those fast food places!.

As long as the chicken is fed a species-appropriate diet, it is hypo-allergenic as well (1). Some found other ways to eat protein by adding fish into their diet as well (ovo-lacto-pesco vegetarian). Some found other ways to eat protein by including fish into their diet as well (ovo-lacto-pesco vegetarian).
Then there were clients somewhat in between that ate in this fashion, yet would occasionally have poultry or red meat at a meal. Then there were clients that ate in this fashion, yet would occasionally have poultry or red meat in their diet.
