Any legume farmer.

You will not find a protein source cheaper and more environmentally friendly. Legumes are also a great source of fiber, calcium, iron, other assorted minerals, assorted vitamins and even the shi shi phytochemicals you read about all of the time.

Ah, yes, so many options too. Raw almonds are my favorite.

I also recommend flax seeds.

Neither are high protein. You get very little protein per calorie

That attack cat you have in your avatar makes me too scared to comment.

I don't know much about it, but I hear a lot of people are getting materials from True Protein.com

Also, Spirulina is an excellent source of protein and you can get it from www.veganproteins.com at a good rate.

Check out www.trueprotein.com and www.veganproteins.com

All the best!
