The first thing I would ask you... Is have you seen your doctor recently? Had recent blood work? Couldn't hurt to look into it to rule out a host of issues e.g. thyroid, blood sugar, iron, etc...

As far as getting more protein from vegetarian sources... If you like meat alternatives from Boca and Morningstar those are good... I like some of the faux meats from Gardein... a lot of them have close to 20g's of protein per serving...

Do you not eat eggs and dairy? Because if you do, you shouldn't have any problem getting more than enough protein... With things like an egg white omelet or some Greek yogurt...

But even on a vegan diet there are lots of options... Tofu, tempeh, seitan, beans, nuts...

And of course there are lots of great vegetarian and vegan protein powders that you can make all sorts of smoothies with to help supplement your protein needs as well...
