Dear Wess,

Protein is a catchword for those amino acids necessary for living. A complete protein contains all the essential amino acids, and would include meats, eggs and dairy. Almost all foods contain one or more amino acids, and in combination, they will provide most of your necessary protein (protein deficiency is virtually unknown in the US). If you would like a listing of the amounts of protein in different foods, I would suggest the USDA government sites, or checking with your library and asking the reference librarian for a book with protein listings.

Best of luck,
