With the growth of social media as a platform to share information, veganism is becoming more visible, and could be becoming more accepted in sports and in the health and fitness industry.
Accurate representation, optimal health, nutrition and fitness can come hand in hand with choosing a plant-based diet. Whether you're already an athlete in training, fitness fanatic, health-conscious or just want to feel like high-protein meals without any form of meat or dairy will have you feeling energized to do your gym-thing.
The right plant-based foods can be excellent sources of protein and other nutrients, often with fewer calories than animal products.
Some plant products, such as soy beans and quinoa, are complete proteins, which means that they contain all nine essential amino acids that humans need. Others are missing some of these amino acids, so eating a varied diet is important.
Due to the diet being naturally anti-inflammatory, it is said that a plant based diet can quicken recovery times and even improve mental clarity, helping many people stay focused.
Above are somethings that you can implement into your diet for a healthier vegan lifestyle.
