Protein is a very important component of every cell in the body as it helps to build and repair tissues.
So if you’re going vegan this January – or forever – you might benefit from these tips.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, Myprotein ambassador and Gymshark athlete Stefanie Moir has shared her insight into veganism.
“I personally love the Myprotein range”
She said: “I eat a varied and balanced diet consuming high protein foods such as beans, lentils, tofu and tempeh along with using Myprotein vegan protein powder in smoothie that really helps up my daily protein intake.
“I definitely get all the nutrients I need following a vegan lifestyle. I personally only use protein powder, but not to supplement any lacking nutrient, more so to reach my fitness goals as it is a quick and easy to add into your diet post-workout.
“I personally love the Myprotein range, they have so many great vegan products including indulgent snacks too.
“I love tofu and tempeh is really easy to add to pretty much any dish, from stir fry, curries, stews, even homemade burger and wraps.”
The healthy lifestyle vlogger, from Glasgow, Scotland, doesn’t find that she eats less since becoming a vegan.
Stef – who has more than 281,000 followers on Instagram – continued: “I do eat a lot of food, volume is definitely something I did notice [when] going vegan.
“But in order to eat healthy foods and reach my caloric goals to support my training, a lot of food is necessary for me.
“And hey that’s not a bad thing, I love to eat.”
Stef now runs a vegan fitness community at veganaesthetics.co.uk, where she shares her 12-week challenges to help guide others.
Earlier this month, Myprotein launched their vegan range, which includes pancake mix and pre-workout.
They also collaborated with Joe Wicks to release The Body Coach range.
It boasts a variety of Whey and Vegan protein in flavours vanilla, salted caramel, chocolate brownie and turmeric latte.
The Body Coach x Myprotein supplement range and vegan range is now available online on the official website.
