For all our plant-powered athletes or everyday active individuals looking to get the right ratio of protein, carbs, and healthy fats, this general guide is a great choice for you. It is suited for both men and women, depending on food preferences and individual body needs. Men may need more protein and calories than women, and you may also find it helpful to vary your ratio of proteins, carbohydrates and fats before and after workouts to see which ones work best for you. Remember that you’ll need to fuel up before and after your workout, and choosing whole food sources of protein, carbs, and fats will benefit you further than processed energy bars or other foods full of additives and fillers.
This plan is also full of refined sugars and grains and focuses on whole, plant-based foods that give the body the nutrients it needs with no calorie restrictions. It also doesn’t exclude food groups (such as grains, carbs, or fat). Explore these recipes and let our plant-based meal plan energize your active lifestyle!
