Best Protein Sources (for someone who cannot tolerate legumes)

Hi everyone!  I've recently transitioned to a more plant-based diet.  First, it's because I don't like dealing with meat but after awhile I just started to feel a lot healthier.  Unfortunately, I just recently was able to tie my uncomfortable abdominal distension to my love of LEGUMES! NOOOO!  I'm not going to eliminate legumes but they were a huge source for protein and fiber.  Any ideas what to replace them with??

As of right now, I can think of..

- Eggs

- Tofu

- Dairy (although I'm trying to minimize dairy intake as well..)

 

 

THANKS!

Spinach, broccoli and mashrooms has lots of protein in it, but you can also get some from almonds and peanuts! :)
