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 . See vegan diet recipes below.

Spiced Chickpea Crepes with Soybean Paneer Tofu Chilla

With Vegan Diet Athletes Improve Health And Thrive-Spiced Crepes

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

Mustard-Crusted Tofu with Kale and Sweet Potato

With Vegan Diet Athletes Improve Health And Thrive-Mustard-Crusted Tofu with Kale and Sweet Potato

(Photo by Tina Rupp). I am bending the rules a little here because I don’t eat chicken. But if you substitute chicken breasts for tofu it will work just fine.This recipe was inspired by my visit to Jamaica a few years ago. The mustard gives a nice, spicy bite–a good alternative to traditional jerk seasoning. It was one of my 20 minute recipes that was included in a feature on Bon Apppetit reader recipes!

Sprouted Mung Bean Saute

With Vegan Diet Athletes Improve Health And Thrive-Sprouted Mung Bean Saute

Do not be intimidated by sprouting mung beans. The technique is simply to soak them for 1/2 day and then keep them wrapped in a towel in a warm environment for another 1/2 day. After this day of preparation the beans will have sprouted and are ready for use. If you cannot prepare the sprouted mung beans right away then store them in the refrigerator for up to a few days.
We typically serve this particular dish over white basmati or brown rice for a quick weeknight meal. However, I’m sure other variations would work as well.-viblanco Recipe

Vegan Lentil Shepherd’s Pie with Parsnip and Potato Mash

With Vegan Diet Athletes Improve Health And Thrive-Vegan Lentil Shepherd’s Pie with Parsnip and and Potato Mash

OK, even the easiest of shepherd’s pies can feel like an undertaking. To make this delicious, hearty dish a lot more accessible, try cooking the lentils and prepping the vegetables one day in advance. On the day of assembly, mash the potatoes and parsnips early in the day, and sautee the veggies and assemble the pie later on, before dinner. Leftovers can easily be frozen. And I dare you not to eat all of the mashed parsnips and potatoes before you even get to finishing the recipe!-Gena Hamshaw Recipe
