Raw Protein Trail Mix

By: Heidi Finger

Vegans frequently get asked if they are getting enough protein or how do they get protein. Protein is in some many foods other than meat. The easiest way for me to consume protein is from nuts and legumes. I like to frequent the bulk bins at the grocery store. Whenever any of the raw nuts go on sale I buy a pound. 

I was looking for a quick lunch that would fill me up. Also, there is more than the daily recommended value of protein in the final product. This trail mix is good for carrying in your purse as an on the go snack. I like to pair it with some fruit or eating avocado directly out of the skins.
