protein in raw food

Q How do I know which vegtables have protein?

A All vegetables contain protein, in fact all fruits do as well. Granted some have more than others, but it is quite easy to meet your protein requirements on a raw food diet.

Here’s an example of my diet. My morning smoothie is typically comprised of 4 medium oranges, 4 medium bananas, and I head of romaine lettuce. That figures out to 17 grams of protein, and since the body can only assimilate roughly 20 grams of protein per meal that is just about perfect. With one or two more meals to go and perhaps a tall glass of green juice I easily meet my protein requirements.

This 'question' and 'answer' explains a little further about protein sources.
