Default Cycling and vegetarianism

I've foudn it hard, as busy as I am, to get enough protein to feel good,
especially as I ramp up my mileage. So last summer I started eating fish
again after being a vegetarian for 5 years. I'm thinking of starting
turkey again. I think between turkey and fish and egg whites and yogurt I
should be good to go in terms of protein.

Has anyone here struggled with this issue? Do you think I'm doing the
right thing or do you think I should consider trying sources like soy
before turkey? The main reason for choosing turkey is because of its ease
of use as a protein source at work. Throw together a quick sandwich and
theres 20% of my protein for the day, you know.

I you want easy, try whey protein. One scoop (typically) is 20 grams of
protein.

Naah. Been a vegetarian for 30 years, biked & hiked a lot. You don't
really need all that much protein. If you do, cottage cheese is the cure.
What you may need to do is cut down on empty calories (except, perhaps,
on days with extremely high caloric demands).

Of course, it isn't as easy as the 'merican way.

Is what you might be feeling simply age?
