21 Plant Based Muscle Building Recipes

How do I get enough protein?

This is the “ultimate” question many plant based eaters ask and often times even the reason that holds people back from adapting this animal free lifestyle.

To be honest I am not surprised that there is much confusion surrounding this topic. Most of us have been conditioned to associate cheese, eggs and a steak as soon as we hear the word protein.

Did you know though that every – yes, every – whole food contains protein? From your morning banana to your evening salad, finding plants packed with protein is easy to do. And not only is it easy to do, it is easy for your body to use. Read more HERE.

So why is protein so important?

As you may or may not know, proteins are used every single day to keep the body going. The body needs protein to develop, grow and maintain just about every part of our body – from our skin and hair to our digestive enzymes and immune system antibodies – they are constantly being broken down and must be replaced.

Protein is especially important after exercise, since physical activity like strength training purposefully damages muscle tissues so they can repair and grow back stronger.

So what sorts of food should you be eating to ensure an optimal protein intake?

This post includes 21 muscle building recipes from around the web to help you get the protein necessary so you can build and maintain a healthy active plant based lifestyle.
