Protein diet

I want to gain 5 kg muscle weight. But problem is that i m pure veg and even i don't eat eggs so i m not able to take enough protein. I know that i can take legumes, nuts, dairy products and sprouts like chana and multi grain chapaties but these don't provide proper protein content and also they are high in carbs and fats. So please suggest me which non steroidal protein supplement i should take along with my diet (i mentioned above) to get enough lean protein which can be easily absorbed by muscles. Protinex is good but it contains only 30gm of protein per 100gm which is quite less. Muscleblaze has 24gm protein in 33gm but for me its not affordable as it costs ₹3500 per kg. I want good protein supplement which is affordable and can be taken daily. I talked to my trainer and says its fine and for vegen people its necessary to gain weight and supplements doesn't have any side effects but i think it must be affordable.

Hello.i think you should understand that gaining weight by taking supplements is never good for health, most of the time it is associated with longterm side-effects. So following a healthy way to gain weight is most preferable.if you are willing for that, this are my advice-you should follow a strict diet, avoid eating oily and spicy foods, avoid sugary substances like sweets and diary products since it contributes too much calories.prefer fresh fruits like pears,apples, citrus fruits,jamon,banana,tender coconut,berries like blueberries,raspberries and include fresh vegetables in the form of salads.have fresh sprouts and a glass of milk twice daily.Try to include brown rice, oats into your diet.prefer olive oil or if not available then sunflower oil for cooking.try to include soya beans atleast twice a week in your diet since it is a rich source of protein. try prefer food substances made up of ragi which is again rich source of minerals needed for the body.prefer buttermilk and ragi gunji.avoid junk foods and fast foods, prefer home cooked meals. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Do daily morning jogging for 30-40min,skipping for 10-15mins,if possible join rock climbing classes since this activity requires tremendous amount of muscle strength to balance, it will give you stamina along with a proper workout.Do daily morning meditation and yoga. In the evening do brisk walking for 20-30mins and cycling for 30-40 mins.if you are not satisfied kindly consult a dietician.
