First meal:

1/3 block tofu
handful of pumpkin seeds
handful of almonds
2 cups of almond milk
1/2 cup of oatmeal
a little stevia
some b-12
a little cinnamon, nutmeg etc.
blended into a smoothie so I can get out the door ASAP!

snack:
apple
carrot sticks

second meal:
one serving of tempeh or seitan (usually baked) served with rice or quinoa
I sometimes sub beans and rice, lentils and quinoa, or even peanut butter and bread
as many veggies as I can get

post workout shake:
one scoop of protein
almond or rice milk
1/2 banana
1/4 cup of oatmeal
1 tablespoon of peanutbutter

final meal:
a huge salad, no dressing
1/3 block of tofu, either baked or stir fryed
and a serving of beans and rice

I only drink water and green tea. On the weekends I will go out with friends and have a shot or two and some beer or wine.
I might eat some kind of junk food every 1-2 weeks (vegan pizza, greasy pad thai are my favorite cheat foods).

For me, something like this would be a typical day:

UPON WAKING

Cup of warm water (not hot)
2 x tsp aloe vera juice
splash of apple cider vinegar (needs to have the mother in it)
1/2 squeezed lemon
pinch of psyllium husks/hulls (optional)

MEAL ONE

Carrot, apple, pomegranate, kale, goji and ginger juice

MEAL TWO (around 1pm):

Salad of some description or vege sushi

Image

Image

MEAL THREE (before 7pm)

Quite often eat out at my local vegan/vegetarian restaurant ~ rice, steamed veges, tofu and some kind of mushroom or soy 'meat'

Image


Fluids wise I'll get through at least 1 litre of water and a few herbal teas.

Don't really know how many cals I would eat in a day, probably somewhere between 2,000-3,000 but depends what I am doing sports wise.

I'm someone that looks bigger than what they weigh :lol: I sit around 130lb as a runner and 140-145 when I am powerlifting.

So you're eating three meals everyday (your salad looks tasty), do you have a post workout meal ?

Sometimes, usually I will eat something in the 1-2 hours after training. Depends on how hard the session was. If it was a tough one often I am not that hungry for a while.

Yeah, I eat usually around 3 meals a day and snack on things like fruit and nuts throughout the day as well :wink:

Although i have cheat days and meal, this is what my regular diet looks like or this is how I want it to look.

9 AM
1 Coconut Water
3 Oatmeal Pancakes
1 Slice of Brown Bread

11 AM
3 Pears ( Pears was today, I keep replacing the fruit)

12 PM
6 Almonds

1 PM
Half a bowl of Green Grams (Sprouted and Boiled)
Half a bowl of Brown Chickpeas (Boiled and Cooked) (I usually have these made one in three days and store them in the freezer and keep having small portions every day)

3 PM
2 Wheat Chappati (Wheat Breads)
2 Bowls of Yellow Lentils and Pulses

4 PM
Twinings Lemon Green Tea X 2

6:20 PM
1 Big Bowl of Original Kellogs Cornflakes (If I Have bananas before preworkout I feel the bananas in my system and feel it adversely affects my workouts)

7 PM
Workouts (Weightlifting)

8 PM
1 Apple
1 Scoop Zero Carb Isopure Protein Shake (with cold water)

9 PM
Small portion of Ladyfinger (Veggie)
Cottage Cheese (Boiled)-Low Fat High Protein
Salad (Cucumber / Tomatoes / Capsicum / Lettuce / Onion )

When I use MyfitnessPal to calculate the specs
Major nutrition specs only.
Total Fat: 41 grams
Saturated: 5
Polyunsaturated: 6
Monounsaturated: 3
Trans: 3

Total Carbs: 406
Dietary Fibers: 72
Sugars : 81

Protein: 117 grams

So it looks like 406:117:58 (carbs:proteins:Fat) ?
I know my diet can be better and I'm willing to make improvements. I don't want to see dietitians and was hoping some of y'all could help/critique/advise me out here. I have been on and off this page, but wanna now get serious and also have accountability buddies. I would also love to follow the regular fitness enthusiasts out here on Instagram to inspire myself and have veganbodybuilding buddies on IG and Myfitnesspal

IG: prsaraogi
Myfitnesspal: prsaraogi

Thanks for taking the time to read and thanks in advance for the constructive advises.

Hi, guys. First time posting. Long time vegan but new to weightlifting.
Only recently starting counting calories because I think I was under-eating. I've settled into a diet regimen of sorts and would appreciate any advice for improving it.

Breakfast
Oatmeal, 50/50 oat & qunioa porridge, or shredded wheat with almond or soy milk. (300-400 calories)

Second Meal
2 Cups cooked pasta with nutritional yeast, sometimes with vegetables as well (500-600 calories)

Third Meal
2 Cups cooked beans (black, pinto, chickpea, etc), with some kind of vegetable mixed in (500-600)

Weight Gainer Shake: 1-2 bananas (100-200cal), 1.5 cup red lentils (345), veg milk (60-130), frozen fruit (50), occasionally pea protein powder (120) =555-845

Plus at least 500 calories of peanuts a day, sometimes processed together with raisins or other dried fruit or in the form of peanut butter, sometimes just pb&j sandwiches

=2355-2945 calories

I was pretty intimidated the first time I sat down to eat a bowl filled with two cups of black beans. Thought I wouldn't be able to down it all, but it wasn't bad at all :D

Need to get some more greens in there when I can, though :P

I recently saw an article that claimed a variety in diet is not good because of microbacteria but I need to track it down. I always preach variety. Anyone know more about this or have seen the article/study?

Hey Guys, was a poster here almost a decade ago, don't even remember my username back then, but came on here to post my awesome post workout meal.

Cheap ingredients (mostly), very easy and fast to make ( I actually cook it between sets of my workout so it's ready for when I'm done), and loaded with 150 grams of vegan protein:

1 half bag of frozen mixed chinese veggies, 225g. (10g of protein)
1 half block of high protein Tofu (35g of protein)
1 half cup of black beans, optional (10g of protein)
1 cup of Hemp Hearts (60g of protein)
Some Teriyaki and Sriracha sauce for flavour.

1 heaping scoop of vegan protein powder mixed with water for a drink, pea protein blend (35g of protein)

It's a massive meal, but I usually only have a peanut butter and banana sandwich (and b supplements) in the morning, workout in the early afternoon, and eat this around 2 so I'm usually starved by that time and able to hammer it.

Anyways, thought I'd share!
