Description : As a long time Vegan Bodybuilder, I had a challenging time finding simple, quick, and easy ways to meet my daily protein and nutrition requirements.

This book is for people who want to spend their hard work in the gym, not the kitchen! -Andrew Blakehall
Description : Hello there my fellow Beautiful Vegans! My name is Zoey. I love cooking all things Vegan, and I also love keeping active. To many, not educated in the matter, the two don't seem to go hand in hand. Bro-science Bodybuilders who swear by animal based sources of protein are fairly stalwart in their beliefs as to what constitutes performance foods for weight gain through lifting and cardiovascular exercise. Yet, it's apparent to everyone that meets me, that as a happy and wholesome vegan, I'm doing just fine, eating above my caloric baseline when trying to gain muscle and size, and below when cutting. In no way am I sitting here suffering from lack of any energy or nutrients. In fact… I feel fantastic! It's simply a matter of making sure the macros are in order. Many successful sportsmen and women in the world are vegans, including Triathletes, Cyclists, Bodybuilders, Mixed Martial Artists, and even Olympians. And the questions we are always sick of hearing from many a meat eater? Where are the muscle building proteins, and the energy and calories from fats? Well guess what! Protein, and fats are NOT exclusive to the butcher. Yet.. I have a feeling I'm preaching to the converted :) We know this stuff. We don't need convincing. So after discovering a lack of easy to find Vegan recipes that support a performance focused lifestyle, and myself being such a devotee to the art of the Vegan kitchen creation, this little recipe book was born. Here is 101 amazing and tasty recipes you and your friends will love that showcase our life changing diet, and keep you looking awesome! Vegan friendly smoothies, delicious energy bars, and dozens of main meal (and dessert!) recipes packed full of the poteins and fats we need to keep us pounding the pavement and busting out those extra reps in the gym. From here on, the path to personal power through Vegan scrumptious goodness is yours to command :) Peace, and enjoy the journey! Zoey Sampson
