You can find a few protein powders to make your own, they'll be egg-based or pea protein based, I'm not sure of brand names. You might also need to look at how your meals are composed. The meal template (available here: is a good starting point, but it is a minimum, you are definitely welcome to eat more. You can eat two or more palm-sized servings of protein.
