Taking the plunge... Vegan & Muscles
Muscle gains and vegan diet, yep I've heard the worries and I've had the worries.
Lots of vegetables are considered “Incomplete protein” meaning they lack key amino acids that are building blocks of making protein. Don’t fear!
There are Complete protein sources for vegans and vegetable lovers such as Quinoa, Buckwheat, Hempseed, Chia, Soy (Think Tofu, Edamame and Tempeh), Spirulina
For vegetables that are considered “Incomplete protein” source you can easily overcome this by “Protein complementation”, which simply means eat variety! Starchy vegetables lack lysine that leafy green vegetables have abundance of, Beans and legumes are high in Lysine yet they lack in Methionine that Nuts and Seeds have abundance of, you get the trick 😋
