Am I getting enough protein? (vegetarians please)

I've been eating more of a vegetarian diet lately. I eat eggs, cucumbers, and nuts (I count protein bars and breakfast biscuts since they have nuts in them). These are the only sources I have for protein since my parents don't buy soy products (they don't buy greeny leafs). I don't drink milk either. Am I getting enough protein or am I lacking? I eat more nuts then cucumbers and eggs. If I'm lacking how can I get enough to not? I don't want to get a protein, iron, or calcium deficiency (malnutrition). I posted this on another site. I know this isn't the site to post this on but I just want to get replies as fast as I can.

I have a similar story as yours I too have used Built Bar protein bars for my protein requirements & these work well for me. Also with the help of Built bar Coupon I saved some bucks on my purchase.

I'm vegetarian as well. Nuts are much more a source of natural fats than a spurce of protein. Nuts actually have a shockingly low amount of protein in comparison to what is commonly believed. Any yoplait light yogurt has more protein than nuts or peanut butter. Soy milk has 50% more calcium than regular milk. I suggest buying some of that. Also, buy veggie burgers. They have a huge amount of protein! (you do need to check the ingredients and nutrition facts first though because any of them that list "potatoes" as the first ingredient will have verrryyyyyyy little protein. I get one under 200 calories at costco that has 17 grams of protein. Costco only has two kinds (that aren't meat replacements as in they don't taste like dead animal) and the other one (that I don't eat) only has 4 grams of protein!
