I published another post that discussed my transition to more vegan/plant based options. Even though I am not vegetarian or vegan, I make it a priority to opt for vegan based options in my diet.
With a vegetarian diet, there’s the option to consume animal products that aren’t related to consuming the flesh of an animal. In my opinion, it is much more convenient to consume a vegetarian bodybuilding meal plan and hit the macros that will allow you to grow in size, and develop lean, quality muscle.
Below is my vegetarian meal plan based on what I’ve been consuming over the past 2 months.
Breakfast is easy since most people don’t consume meat.
My breakfast will usually consist of:
- 100g oats
- 50g strawberries
- 50g banana
- 130g of coconut milk
- 5g cinnamon
- 30g of protein whey
I will usually have this as a smoothie bowl.
Another option is to have egg whites (I personally hate them, so I don’t want to recommend it as a meal)
Another option is to create waffles or pancakes. You can use flour, but be sure to calculate the macros. You can have this with maple syrup and yogurt.
Another breakfast option is yogurt.
Vegetarian Lunch and dinner
Both lunch and dinner will combine the following.
- Sweet potatoes
- Rice (white or brown)
- Kidney beans
- Black beans
- Tomato salsa/ketchup
If I need to supplement my protein, I can easily take a scoop of protein whey.
