Whether you exercise for recreation or are a serious competitor, proper nutrition is essential for any athlete. If you are looking to improve your athletic performance, The Vegan Lab has recipes and resources for you to learn how to make nutrient-dense meals to prepare your body for a workout, replacing fuel burned and fluids lost during your workout, and how to build strength and muscle during your recovery.
Whole, plant-based foods (and those that are minimally processed and free of added sugars) are naturally low in saturated fat, high in fiber and replete with cancer-protective phytochemicals. They supply your body with the nutrients you need for efficient cellular regeneration and muscle tissue repair, accelerating recovery. Your body can more efficiently digest plant-based food, and use the energy and nutrients it delivers faster and more effectively.
