As you may or may not know, you do not need protein powder to make sure you meet your needs. When it comes to post-workout meals, it is very important that you get your necessary carbs and protein. If you do not refuel your body at the right time and with the right foods you may get compromised results and average results. It is no different for a Vegan, if you do not have the correct post-workout meal, you will delay recovery and suffer from muscle soreness.

Can a Vegan diet affect your gym results?

Protein is crucial in building and maintaining muscle mass.  It is a common misconception that you need to be eating meat and chicken to make sure you hit your protein intake. However, those who follow a Vegan diet can consume just as much protein and hit their targets. Protein is found is a number of plant-based foods. The main source of protein comes from lentils and beans, tempeh, tofu, soy products, seeds such as chia seeds or sunflower seeds, whole grains and also nuts. For Vegans, it can be challenging to eat the sufficient amount of protein and for athletes it is even tougher.
