That's 40-60g protein. That's not enough even w/ lunch & dinner.

I'd say at least 110g, but it really depends on your goals and how many calories you eat in total.

This probably belongs in diet and nutrition :)

It sounds to me like you have been taken in by marketing. You would be better off getting your vitamins and minerals from fruit and veggies and other less processed food. High in carbohydrate is not necessarily a good thing, especially when half of them are simple sugars. High in protein is entirely subjective. I would not say 6.6g of protein per 112 calories is a good ratio. I am not a meat eater so I can't give you figures for that, but my meat substitutes are more in the region of 16g of protein for 100 calories.

Finally, as has already been pointed out, there is no single "wonder" food. You need a varied diet in order to get plenty of fibre, vitamins and minerals, protein and healthy fats. Almost anything is fine to eat, in moderation.
