Consult a dietician: See dietician and they can best come up with diet to make sure that you are getting enough protein.

Try legumes: It depends on how raw your diet is. Nut butters nuts. Seeds. Legumes are all good protein sources.

Animal Fat & Protein: I encourage families to include animal fat and protein in their diet, as traditional societies around the world. A well-balanced (fat/protein/carbs) nutritionally packed vegan/vegetarian diet is possible, but less probable - especially for children. http://getrealforkids.com/resources/real-food/balanced-meals-snacks/1987-secrets-of-a-balanced-meal#.

Unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing, are willing to supplement heavily, and can recognize shameless lies for what they are, don't be a vegan or a vegetarian. These diets ruin people's and families' health every day, though in different ways from the junk/obesogenic diet.
