Build vegan muscle! Vegan bodybuilding: what do vegan bodybuilders eat? Where do vegans get their protein? What do vegans eat? Here’s what I eat in a day as a vegan bodybuilder, and some vegan meal suggestions, some high protein vegan meals 🙂

Let me take you through what I eat while bulking/ on maintenance in this video!

Here’s what I ate when I was cutting as a vegan: https://youtu.be/W5zywpFCqrk

For those of you that are new here, hey, I’m Conrad 🙂 I’m a vegan bodybuilder and MASc student in civil engineering. My YouTube channel Veggies for Thought has the goal of giving people some food for thought on topics like bodybuilding, fitness, ethics, and science.

If you’re interested in some chia seeds or hemp seeds, check your prices! They might be cheaper on Amazon. I’ve found these to be cheaper than buying them at local stores, even when they were on sale:

    Too much sugar in the oatmeal. Id cut the berries and chocolate. You already have peanut butter, a banana and cinnamon.

    Brown rice only cooks for 6 minutes in the i-pot? I set it to cook for at least 20 minutes + natural steam release in the i-pot!

    This is a lot of calories though, lentils and rice have more calories than lean chicken. adding coconut milk adds a lot more calories, but lentils do not taste nice without. you can eat less lean chicken to get the protein, than the amount of lentils needed.
    Oats and peanut butter have a lot more calories than egg. these foods make you fat.
    what are your thoughts on this?

    Love your level headed approach to veganism. . Had one question though and it would be great if you could share insights. I eat around 250 gms (raw weight) soaked overnight and pressure cooked Indian style. I also eat around 1.5 – 2 pounds of stewed vegetables a day. The fiber comes up to more than 70 gms. I get a bit of bloat. Should we increase the consumption gradually or just stick to 150g ms a day? I am not a vegan yet and I do consume an occasional egg or two and a cup of yogurt (rarely). While I understand the RDA of fiber is on the lower side don't you feel a 100 gms of fiber might cause GI disturbances. Would be great if you could share info.

    great video with helpful information – thx! As you measured everything: could you post the ingredients and macros for each meal in the description / in the comments? That would be a great help for a lot of us! Keep it up! 🌱💪😀

    Glad to see the chia, hemp, and flax in there! I put chia seeds and hulled hemp seeds in my oatmeal and blueberry breakfast daily. I have found from personal experience that eating flax seeds in their natural state is pretty much worthless as far as the nutrition goes – they are excreted in the next bowel movement still in their solid form (interesting experiment to demonstrate this to those who don't know). Flax is utilized by the body fully if it is ground, and the fresher the better, as it can turn rancid rather quickly sometimes (that has occurred with me also). Ground flax also goes into my breakfast, right along with the chia and hemp. Chia, hemp, and flax are three of the main ALA Omega 3 sources, with the fourth being walnuts. I put about the same amount of hemp that you do, but I notice that you are using probably about twice the chia I do. I also eat about a cup of blueberries daily, and bananas.

    In modern times, folks use so much in the way of flavoring and condiments that they never really know what the real food by itself tastes like. I have moved away from the flavoring habit considerably over the years, and have slowly come to appreciate the actual taste of foods, such as rice and beans or lentils. The taste is there, but we have become so conditioned to drown our food with seasonings that we think not doing so will leave us with flavorless tasteless food. Our seasoning penchant as a collective society is a learned response. We can teach ourselves to learn new ways if we are motivated, and when we look at maximizing our health and longevity, we realize that some typically social things we were eating on foods are not contributing to our best self (such as common salad dressings, which are loaded with oils, a processed thick liquid that results in postprandial hyperlypemia, an unhealthy thickening of the blood). Giving up seasonings is too challenging for most of us, but worthwhile nonetheless. Regarding cooking in oil, I have used water for a long time now, as I don't do any forms of oil any more, including olive. If I want olives, I eat the whole food, not the refined and highly concentrated oil from it. Same with sunflower seeds, coconut, etc.

    Thanks for taking the time to film and produce this informative talk!

    Great video man! Do you always cook without oil? I remember you suggesting the Gaz Oakley chili recipe once but his recipes are not oil free, do you just sub it with water? I've made his chickpea curry recipe before and it's delicious but pretty oily!

    Nice work dude! Would be really useful if you could possibly add macros/ calories for each meal on the screen for future meal videos – I know I’d find it useful 🙂 keep it up
