I'v heard that spinach, chick peas and some other vegetables have protein in them. Does that protein have the same effect as protein that you get from the meat?

vegetable protein is real, they are different, different amino acids.

this and, there is a lot less protien in most plants that other sources such as meat/eggs. and plant protien is alot less bioavailable, which means you dont metabolize the protien it does contain.

they are incomplete proteins based on amino acid content

"Real protein"?
Vegetarian (non-animal) sources of protein are just as "real".

WRONG. They're imaginary.

Comments above are correct, let me help you with your "wordage". Basically plant proteins are called "secondary proteins" where meat/eggs are whole proteins. A peanut butter sandwich and 2 eggs might both have 12g of protein, but your body will process more of the egg protein than the nut or plant protein.
