Raw nuts and seeds (and things made with them), bean and seed sprouts of all kinds, and dark green leafy vegetables all contain good amounts of protein.

The listing below (from suggests the best sources of raw vegan protein.

  • Sprouts 55%
  • Green leafy vegetables 35-50%
  • Nuts & Seeds 12-20%
  • Othervegetables 10- 45%
  • Grains 8-20%
  • Fruits 1-10 %

My favorites are:

  1. Sprouts
  2. Spinach
  3. Kale
  4. Broccoli
  5. Parsley
  6. Cucumber
  7. Artichokes
  8. Celery
  9. Hemp Seeds
  10. Flax Seeds
  11. Pumpkin seeds
  12. Tomatoes
  13. Almonds

It is difficult for most raw vegans to NOT get enough protein during the day, if they are eating a varied diet.
