Protein is found in all veggies and fruit, all produce.
While sprouting beans and grains are recommended, I can't eat them. I will eat them cooked sometimes.
I get about half my protein from veggies and fruits, then about half from cooked seitan. Yes, it's cooked but I need a lot of protein with my chronic injury, and a lot of iron (I tend to become nutritionally anemic), and I need a low-starch, low fat, eating plan - so it works for me.
I also supplement with raw hemp protein powder, and I've heard of lower calorie, lower carb, raw rice protein powder ... I'm looking for it.
I don't know anyone who is 100% raw ... even some raw chefs I know sometimes eat cooked brown rice on occasion.
Oh, and be sure to find a way to get adequate B-12 through a supplement, cooked nutritional yeast, enriched (cooked) soy milk, or raw Pure Synergy or something like that - B-12 is critical.
Or bugs - many raw vegans get their B-12 from the insects on unwashed organic produce. Not my thing - I'd rather have those vegan options I mentioned.
