Nutrition Question - Can I see what you typically eat?

#1 Postby CrystalIda » Fri Aug 26, 2005 11:41 am

I'm curious about what a days worth of food looks like for a vegan bodybuilder. Would anyone mind sharing their typical meals for a day with me. Here's mine today. It's really boring cause I'm having a hard time coming up with what to do with my non-meat food.

Meal 1
1 cup Oatmeal
1/2 block tofu

Meal 2
1/2 Cucumber
5 Radishes
1/2 cup baby carrots
Nectarine
1/2 bloack tofu

Meal 3
1/2 Cucumber
5 Radishes
1/2 cup baby carrots
1/2 bloack tofu

Meal 4
1/2 oz. Peanuts
2 slices Ezekiel Bread
Slice Soy Cheese

Meal 5
1 cup Pineapple
1/2 cup Quinoa
1/2 block tofu
3 cups Raw Spinach
1T Lowfat Dressing

Meal 6
1 cup Brown Rice
1/2 block tofu

Total Cals: 1647
Fat: 31g 18%
Carbs: 223g 49%
Protein: 132g 33%
Fiber: 30g

Add some tempeh and seitan recipes to your diet, and maybe some different ways of preparing the tofu (like scrambled tofu and hask browns the the am with some strawberries. Yum.)

Check out the recipe section for a good "mock" chicken salad recipe.

There is also a link posted there for some more grrrreat vegan recipes, that you can play with slightly to adjust the numbers.

Also, see Rob's article entitled "Pre-contest Diet" on the home page of the website.

The ratio in terms of Carbs protein, and fat percentage is pretty much on target with the 3-2-1 ratio.

Onions, Soy sauce, PAM (non-stick cooking spray), Vegetable Buillion, Tomatoes, Garlic, BBQ sauce, Different Mustard Varietys, Paprika and Curry are invaluable to me. I saute everything with PAM. Marinade the Tofu in any sauce overnight and bake it. Freeze tofu to give it a meater texture once thawed. Make a curry out of powdered curry and light coconut milk - add veggies and tofu. Lentils. Blend tomatoes in a blender with water, garlic and onion - and it to cooked lentils and stir in tofu during the last 5 minutes. I'll look and see what I can find in terms of recipes. Fatfree.com is also a great resource - it lists recipes by genre and main ingredient.

Eew! I hope it tasted better than it looks (I won't comment on that!). And I'm sure it did!

On the topic of "funky looking, but good tasting," I recently went to a teachers' conference, and had requested vegan meals (as I always do). Since my luck with getting anything remotely ressembling what I'd like to eat has been bad in the past (like waiting long after everyone else got their meals, then being served some grilled veggies that smelled like meat--which I returned and asked for something else, but pretty much ate what I'd packed along in my hotel room: the meal was included in registration, so I thought I'd try), the organizers (who know me well, as I'm on the board of the organization) asked me to talk to the woman at the hotel who was arranging things.

I gave her some ideas for what vegan protein items would be good to include: tofu (I was told they had it), portobello mushrooms (say them on the menu), lentils, tempeh (pretty sure they'd never heard of it), seitan (ditto). Just as examples of good foods to include.

When I was served my meal (this time, BEFORE anyone else!), it was a plate of lentils (brown/green), with a baked portobello mushroom in the center, and some cubes of steamed tofu on the mushroom. Oh, and a sprig of steamed broccoli (see how they ad-libbed there?). It was a very 70's -looking veggie meal (very brown, white and green!). Looked kind of unappetizing, but tasted delish!

A little late but...

Breakfast (5:30am): hot cereal, vegetables, muffins (equalling to usually about 350 calories)

lunch (noon, and throughout the day): pb&j, fruit, luna bar (about 500)

snack (3pm): luna bar OR 7 triskits OR clif Z bar (120-180)

dinner (around 6:30pm): veggies--usually a HUGE plate of them (a bag or so) with soy sauce. More hot cereal. Something with protein...usually. :roll: (like peas or beans or more pb) (500 cal.)

I eat whatever I feel like it (and whenever). Like, if I'm craving chocolate at 5:30 am, then I eat chocolate. If I want hot cereal at 7pm then it's hot cereal I eat.

During the weekends my breakfast stay the same, but I have a larger lunch and smaller dinner. And no snack.
