The Vegan Muscle & Fitness Guide to Bodybuilding Competitions

"Where do you get your protein?"

Here you'll find delicious, whole food plant-based recipes that are goal-friendly, training tips that will help you improve your quality of life and avoid injury, and lifestyle tips about everything from competition prep to vegan pregnancy and raising vegan children.

We seek to promote a fit and active plant-powered lifestyle and shatter the perception that strength and athleticism can't be achieved with a plant-based diet - the mission: to generate as many fit vegan role models as possible to get the message across that a plant-based diet isn't a handicap in the world of athletics - it's an advantage!
