Ok I'm a new(er) vegan. After an intense leg workout today, I ended the workout not having clue what to eat/drink. My old days would have been a whey-based protein shake. Sure, I could go with a soy isolate based drink...but there must be other choices right?

What do you guys consume after a heavy lifting workout?

THANK YOU!!!

I just consume a vegan protein shake straight after my workout (usually either pea or brown rice protein ~ SunWarrior is great) with some fruit just so I can get a bit of carbs into me. This is enough to tide me through to when I take in a proper meal, which is usually about 60-90mins after training.

Post Workout Shakes are a matter of personal preference.
You can live without them and have a nice meal after your workouts.

If you(just like me) really want to have a shake after your workouts you could go for a vegetarian protein blend, sunwarrior is a great choice as well - like MF stated. The most consumed are pea protein, rice, hemp, soy or a blend

Check out www.veganproteins.com and see some choices, they have good prices on their selection but there are cheaper brands available on other websites.
