Hi,

My name is TJ. I'm currently coverting to a vegan life style. I'm 30, 5'11", 190 lbs. I'm looking to maintain my current weight and hope to add some muscle size over the next months - years.

I generally perform cardio 2-3 days per weeks (15-20 minutes each session only) and weight train 3-4 days per week. Sometimes more or less for both. I weight train in my garage - compound movements, few iso sets.

Any recommendations on breakfast meals, shakes, snacks, lunchs.

Currently eating oats, nuts, rice, legumes, vegs, fruits, whole grain bread, almond milk and tofu (sparingly - not sure how I feel about soy products but I'm open to input and opinions).

Thanks for taking a look at my post.

Hey TJ! I'm a new vegan too and I one staple I have found to add to my diet is seeds. They taste great, the are full of protein and healthy fats and there is such a wide variety! Pumpkin seeds and flax seed are my favorites.
