As you all know I’m in a period where I’m trying to build muscle, I’m also in college and I bet some of my readers are too. Therefore, I’m going to show my main protein sources and tell you all about how it’s going so far. Hopefully it’ll help someone else in my shoes and inspire others who are thinking about veganism or vegan fitness, OR people who are thinking about their health.
As you can imagine, I were conserned coming to the U.S, because I’d heard so many junk food stories about this country before my arrival. I were afraid there would be little to none healthy options and most of all vegan options. Luckily, I were pleasant surprised when I walked into the DS (dining service) for the first time. There were many healthy options and a big salad-bar.
Now to the protein. My main sources for protein in my meals are various beans, chickpeas, lentils, spinach and broccoli. That’s basically what my lunch and dinner consists of.
My breakfast is my usual oatmeal with berries and fruit. Sometimes I add peanut butter for extra protein.
If I feel hungry when DS is closed I eat this marvellous black bean soup with 18 grams of protein. I’m thrilled that I found it in a store nearby!
After workouts or as a snack I usually eat one of my Clif protein bars – vegan, of course. They taste amazing, even better than non-vegan ones.
Last but not least, my pea protein powder!! When you mix it with cashew milk, soy milk or almond milk it tastes like heaven, hands down. It’s 25 grams of protein per serving and 130 calories. Love it!
Wish you all an amazing saturday.
