Hello, Sistas and Brothas!
I'm from the U.S. (born and raised in Southern California), but I now live in Washington, DC. I've been a vegan for over 14 years now, and I've been more conscious about making sure that workout to strengthen and tone muscle.
I'm a footballer, and I've been trying to balance my cardio workouts with weight and core training, but I've recently noticed that I'm losing more muscle tone than necessary. It may have to do with two reasons, however:
1. I'm currently fasting for religious purposes (so far (day 3), I've missed breakfast before sunrise--not good, I know);
2. I tore my ACL in a football match a few weeks ago, and I'm having an operation for reconstructive ACL repair at the end of the month, so I cannot run or sprint, as I usually do during my workout sessions.
If any of you know of any healthy vegan protein shake recipes, I would be MOST grateful.
I look forward to learning with you all.
