A Vegan Diet is good for Athletes
A widespread mistake is that a vegan diet is leading to an insufficient supply of protein. Nonetheless, there are a variety of plant-based alternatives that contain just as much protein as animal products. Especially, lentil, beans, soy, and tofu are excellently suited to provide the body with protein. By combining different plant protein sources even an amino acid profile can be achieved which is comparable to that of animal products! By eating a vegan diet it is possible to cover without problems the protein requirements with the right food combinations. As you can see, the prejudices are completely unfounded and it only takes small adjustments to make vegan diet suitable for people who do sports.
Although some athletes still smile on vegans and vegan bodybuilding, the trend is clear. More and more athletes are convinced of the benefits of the vegan diet. Probably it is only a matter of time before the stubborn prejudices once and for all get out of the way. See these vegan bodybuilders and be certain you can do sports and be an athlete on a vegan diet. Watch the videos on page 3. See vegan diet recipes below.

A chilla is a popular Indian snack that’s full of flavor and texture. When the batter is loaded with shredded vegetables, the result is thick and pancake-like. I prefer a thin chilla that’s filled like a crepe. Actually, depending on how you fold a chilla (also spelled cheela), you may have something that looks like a taco or an enchilada. Recipe
