You know what most people think? That vegans are left out of the fun of body building and fitness. Maybe cause what they consume is limited and they can't eat everything others do...
...But they're wrong.
Vegans are way more healthier and stand better chance at fitness than others,
Sometimes back we talked on the benefits of a healthful vegetarian diet where we mentioned various advantages of being a vegetarian.
We've also touched the aspect of pre-workout meals that a great for athletes and bodybuilders infact everyone. This post is mainly for vegans.
We've put together a couple of healthy post-workout meals for vegans ~ non-vegans are also welcomed to try them.
These meals are perfect to go with after workouts as they possess tons of carbs, a decent amount of protein (Berman says 6 to 20 grams is plenty), lots of antioxidants, and very little in fat.
We've also added link to their recipes.
We can only hope that you like them.
