Beans of any sort are pretty protein-dense. Using whole grains for your breads, cereals, and pastas can boost protein nicely too.

Frankly, most bodybuilders overdo the whole protein thing. Yes, bodybuilding requires more protein than being sedentary or even aerobically active -- but it's an increase in need of something like 50%, not the 300-400% plus the people selling protein powders would like you to get.

If you're not good about getting the right food, high-protein energy bars are at least convenient. You can easily get vegetarian versions for less than a buck apiece, 10g of protein or better for 200 calories or less.
