Eating Vegan in the Zone

More and more people are choosing to follow a vegan lifestyle. The challenge of eating vegan 40-30-30 comes when trying to boost protein to 30%. Many vegan and vegetarian recipes fall into a carbohydrate percentage of around 60% and a lower than 30% protein percentage. There are several ways to increase protein in a vegan recipe:

Look for legumes and grains that have a higher protein content.

Look for soy alternative meat products that list VEGAN on their labels. Not all soy burgers and crumbles are vegan.

Add VEGAN protein powders to your recipe.

Creating recipes is all a matter or your personal preferences. We encourage you to experiment with the Recipe Builder.

Over the next several weeks we will be focusing on increasing the vegan recipes in our database to better serve our vegan entheusiasts.

    There are many options to eating vegan without eating soy. Look for non-soy protein powders such as bean, hemp or pea. Also look to combine legumes for proteins.
