Thoughts on protein powder? I can't have soy or nuts

I think it’s always better to try to get your protein from whole plant sources, but if you need protein powder to meet your goals then that’s okay too - just make sure it’s a minimally processed natural, plant based protein powder (hemp, pea, brown rice protein etc) with no nasty additives like many do!

I sometimes add a little bit of protein powder to my smoothies or nicecream (but more for taste not protein) because I still have some at home!

But you can still get plenty of protein in a vegan diet without soy and nuts! All whole plant foods contain some protein, which adds up throughout the day.
Some great sources are: legumes (like beans, lentils, peas and chickpeas), seeds (chia, flax, hemp, sunflower, pumpkin etc), quinoa, brown rice, oats, buckwheat and pretty much all other whole grains, green leafy vegetables, broccoli…

Hope that helps! xx

Wow hi!! Let’s do that thing again where I tell you what I did and ate today!

Pre work out: Silk soy yogurt in vanilla. YUM!

Workout (1): Crossfit for one hour wherein I achieved a new PR of 90 lbs jerk, whoooo! Also dropped said 90 pounds on my shin, boooo!

Lunch ish: Smoothie w/ 1 cup soy milk, 2 scoops of brown rice protein powder, cacao, chlorella or however it is spelled, greens powder, 150g banana, coconut Stevia drops (the thing to make this palatable), flax seeds, and coconut shreds. 

Dinner: 3 oz whole wheat pasta w/ one can tomato sauce, garlic, onion, spices, mushroom, and a half of a cup dry TVP. I’ll be honest, this is a lot of food three hours after that smoothie bc I have work from 5-11. So, I’ll probably eat half of it there! Also, should have added some spinach but I’m out and could’ve added broccoli but I don’t have time to steam it!

What I’m counting as work out (2): 5/6 hours waitressing through dinner rush. It’s more cardio than I used to do monthly lol. 

Random snacks: Raspberries.

Uh, that’s all for today folks! Thinking of starting a YouTube channel but I’m a shit cook and weak af. I can do makeup well but I’m too poor to buy loads to do stuff with. Ideas?? All appreciated, thanks for reading!

Hey! Do u have an idea to make sort of an acaï bowl but without having to buy the expensive acaï stuff? Thanks!

Yeah you just make a smoothie bowl.

  • Greens and Other Veggies: kale greens, spinach, romaine, celery, cucumber
  • Frozen Fruits: bananas, apples, pears, kiwis, pineapple, peaches, mango, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, papaya, lemons, limes, grapefruit, oranges, blood oranges, figs, dates, plums, acai, etc.

Tip: When freezing larger fruits, peel the fruit first, slice or chop it, and then store the chunks in a freezer bag for easy use.

  • Proteins: plant-based protein powders (brown rice, pea, organic grass-fed whey protein, etc.), hemp seeds, chia seeds, nut butters, etc.

  • Healthy Fats: chia seeds, avocados, coconut oil, hemp seeds, and any other nuts and seeds you have on hand

  • Superfoods: bee pollen, maca powder, lucuma, cocoa nibs, spirulina, chlorella, cinnamon, cayenne, young coconut meat, unsweetened shredded coconut, coconut water, avocados, chia seeds, hemp seeds, matcha tea powder, nut milks, sprouted buckwheat groats, raw gluten-free oats, etc.

  • Ice to thicken your smoothie

  • Liquid: almond or other milks, coconut water, filtered water, etc.

  • Optional Sweetener: If your smoothie base needs a little additional sweetness, stevia is a great way to add it if you’re watching your carbohydrate intake. Otherwise, any sweetener you use in smoothies will work in a smoothie bowl too!
