On PledgeSports We take nutrition seriously, we’ve compiled a list of the best post-workout foods for vegetarians. As you may or may not know, you don’t need a protein powder to make sure it meets your needs. When it comes to post-workout meals, it is very important that you get your required carbs and protein. If you do not fuel your body at the right time and with the right foods then you can get compromised results and mediocre results. It’s no different for a vegetarian, if you don’t have the right food post-workout, you’ll delay recovery and suffer from muscle soreness.

Can a vegetarian diet affect your gym results?
Protein is important in building and maintaining muscle mass. It is a common misconception that you need to eat meat and chicken to ensure your protein intake. However, people who follow a vegetarian diet can consume the same amount of protein and achieve their goals. Protein is found in a number of plant-based foods. The main sources of protein come from lentils and beans, tempeh, tofu, soy products, seeds such as chia seeds or sunflower seeds, whole grains and nuts. Eating enough protein can be challenging for vegetarians and even more difficult for athletes.
