Most Americans eat ~50% more protein than they need, so I wouldn't worry about getting enough. (PS: I know, you're Canadian)
This may be true, but it's not enough to say: You're in America, don't worry. People have different circumstances.
I researched this recently because for several reasons I've decided to drastically reduce the amount of meat in my diet. I think most of what I've come up with have already been mentioned. My fav is oatmeal. I love oatmeal.

She lives in North America, in a town. She has a job. She surfs the internet. I think it's within reason to assume that she has a diet not unlike others within that demographic. You're right though, there is a large variation in what some people in this culture eat, or have access to.
I'd go with nuts and cheese/peanut butter over protein shakes. I think that kind of thing has a lot of sugar in order to make it taste ok...
Not true. Optimum Nutrition (ON)'s protein is probably the most popular whey protein shake powder supplement on the market (tastes good - like dessert if mixed with milk, mixes really easy and comes in a multitude of flavors - including "cake batter" and "chocolate coconut"). I like to put a little chocolate whey protein in my oatmeal in the mornings. It works as a flavoring/sweetener when you do it.
