    While I'm too lazy to do this, organic peanut butter is pretty easy to make. Buy raw nuts, shell, roast, put into blender with some oil. Blend to crunchy or smooth peanut butter.

    You can also make cottage cheese at home with some milk and buttermilk or plain kefir, a big pot, and some cheesecloth.

    Most Americans eat ~50% more protein than they need, so I wouldn't worry about getting enough. (PS: I know, you're Canadian)

    Indeed.
    The real question may be- How is your iron intake?

    You can meet all of your protein needs by eating a variety of plants. No meat required.

    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.

    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.

    What Beat said. You could go for a meal replacement like EAS Myoplex, though they can be pretty steep. About cold tofu, it is nice topped with crushed ginger and soy sauce.

    Oh good to know! I think I was thinking of those "instant breakfast" shakes.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
