You see, The main issue people have when starting a vegan diet is they don't eat enough calories. This goes for both women and men. The most likely reason for this is because plant-based food is packed with nutrients and fiber which make you "feel full" sooner...which is great.

Where do you get your protein?
And no doubt, it's a legitimate question from the outside looking in on a vegan lifestyle.
But don't worry I won't bog you down in this article with every single plant-based protein source.
But I will let you know that a convenient way to add extra protein on the fly is with plant based protein powder.
And no, it's not needed everyday, but it sure makes it easy to:
- Add texture and flavor to a smoothie
- Give your body a quick bump in protein to repair muscle

Muscle Building Smoothie: Ingredients - Plant-Based Milk
For this plant-based muscle building smoothie recipe i went with almond milk because it's smooth and doesn't have a "negative taste" like other non-dairy milk options.
Full disclosure, I naturally prefer cashew milk, because it's far creamier and I prefer thicker smoothies that are high in calories.
But, of course, You can easily substitute any other plant-based milk you desire.
And because I like my smoothie thick, I only add 1 cup, that way I get to TASTE the calories.
If that's not for you, feel free to add more or less depending on your smoothie consistency likes.
One cup of almond milk contains the following nutrients:
13 g carbs 2.5 g Fat 1 g Protein
Sodium: 170 mg potassium: 180 mg Vitamin A: 150% daily requirement
