There are many ways in which a person can eat their daily protein levels.  Many people eat animal products and by-products to reach their ideal protein intake levels. However, an alternative source, that is a favorite amongst vegans and vegetarians, are nuts. This includes pistachios, walnuts, and peanuts. Not all nuts are created equal; some are healthier than others due to high fat content in relation to the amount of protein they provide.  The Harvard Medical School concluded that unsalted mixed-nuts are the best way to get all of the nutritional value that nuts have to offer. Below is a link to a website that breaks down the different types of nuts and their associated fat content, protein content, and other notable nutrition facts about each.
