Tempeh (for those of you who are not familiar with this protein source): It is a great complete vegan protein source. It is a soy product that originated from Indonesia and basically uses a natural slow fermentation process to make soy beans into a cake form. Due to the fermentation process it is considered to be healthier than tofu as a vegan/vegetarian protein source. You can find tempeh in trader joes, asian markets, whole foods, or the vegetarian section of most grocery stores (even walmart). I got this 16 oz tempeh from trader joes for about $2.50.
