A lot of people wonder if it’s possible to build muscle on a plant based diet. Many experts still insist that you need to build muscle with red meat, poultry ( chicken/ turkey) & fish.
I began delving into plant based eating 10 years ago. Whenever I had to get in top shape I would eliminate red meat & poultry from my diet and stick to fish. Then I asked myself “What protein source is lighter than fish?” Egg whites, beans & lentils! I got more definition but more importantly my recovery and endurance improved DRASTICALLY. Many “experts” say you need meet for strength ( you actually need carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals & fats for strength) I noticed absolutely no decrease whatsoever in muscle mass or strength.
So if you’re following a plant based diet you have nothing to worry about as long as you read up and be creative in the kitchen! You can enjoy great tasting meals and achieve fantastic results at the gym!

Hey everybody! A lot of clients ask if bars are a great solution for snacks. One things for sure they taste great! But from my long experience dieting and getting in shape you might as well eat a real chocolate bar. They taste even better then “ Protein Bars” and are a bit less expensive!
If you’re looking for long term wellness and still want taste & fun here is an AWESOME snack you can make at home!
Chia seeds, blueberries, raspberries,oat yogurt, nuts & honey!
Tnis alternative is far better in terms of nutrient density in comparison to a protein bar. It’s just as tasty and if u prep them in a glass or plastic jar easy to pop in your bag and have during the morning & in between lunch & dinner!
