Raw Favorite Protein Sources
Spinach is about 30% protein and an excellent source of iron and other nutrients.
Sprouts are a big hit with raw vegan body builders because they contain anywhere from 20-35% protein depending on the type of sprout you choose. We love our sunflower and pea sprouts!
Hemp Protein & Hemp Seeds are an excellent addition to smoothies and contain up to 36% protein. Not to mention when you eat hemp seeds you’re also getting a perfect harmony of omega 3,6 and 9′s.
Chlorella is a microscopic plant and vegetarian protein source with a higher protein percentage than meat, fish and eggs. It contains significant amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, and Iron, 16 Amino Acids including all 8 essential amino acids, the "building blocks" of protein. Chlorella also includes a high percentage of Chlorophyll, which our bodies use for digestion, elimination and purifying wastes from our bloodstreams.
All fruits & vegetables contain protein. Proteins are simply a make up of amino-acids, all foods are made up of amino acids, some have a higher amino-acid count than others making them higher in protein. None the less, as long as you’re eating enough calories through out the day, you won’t be protein deficient. Yes, you can get all the protein you need from fresh fruits and vegetables.
