This is what I have:

It’s vegan, gluten free, non-dairy (lactose free), non-gmo, soy free, and kosher. So, if any of that stuff matters to you, you’re good to go. I have it because one of my relatives lifts and trains a lot and does a ton of research for anything he takes.

u/r0botdevil · 6 pointsr/veganfitness

If you're trying to build some muscle, it definitely is important to get enough calories. So if you've calculated your goal intake at 1515/day and you want to add a swim, you should increase your intake to account for that.

As for learning the lifts, I'd start with very basic stuff like bench press, squat, deadlift, and maybe shoulder press. There should be loads of video tutorials on YouTube for this, but proper form is extremely important to minimize risk of injury so don't be too shy about asking someone to check your form in the gym. Most good lifters will be happy to help out with spotting and/or form-checking once in a while, just try not to ask the same guy for stuff all the time or it might get annoying. The biggest single piece of advice I can give to new lifters on form is this: If your muscles are sore the next day, you're probably doing it right. If your bones or joints are sore the next day, you're probably doing something wrong.

As for getting adequate protein as a vegan, that may be your biggest challenge. This stuff is awesome, this stuff isn't bad, and this is a good recipe for a high-protein seitan.

Good luck!

u/aether23 · 6 pointsr/FODMAPS I have this every day, never causes any issues for me and my stomach is extremely sensitive. Ive had both the vanilla and chocolate

u/vectorlit · 5 pointsr/vegan

Regarding your question about helping the environment: <-- Go here and put in "1 year" into the calculator. Just one year, you're saving almost half a million gallons of fresh water, 15 THOUSAND pounds of grain, 11 THOUSAND square feet of forest and 7 THOUSAND pounds of carbon dioxide (compared to a typical animal-including diet). The calculator is supported by sources. Just by changing a few minor things about your lifestyle, you can have an incredibly drastic impact on the world.


TL;DR regarding expense and difficulty - if you live in a very rural area in the USA, it can take some difficulty to find a good source of cheap bulk beans / lentils / vegetables / bulk (by weight) dried veggies. But they're sooooooo cheap; normally you can eat for $1-2 a day, plus B12 vitamin expenses ($5 a month).


Longer explanation regarding expensive/difficult: Expense is very low; I pay much less now for food than before going vegan. Difficulty may vary depending on where you live. I happen to live in Denver, and it's very easy for me to find pretty much any substitute/vegetable I want. If you cook your own meals, there's really nothing different about cooking vegan - just use vegetable oil/avocado oil instead of butter, and buy veggies instead of meat. That's about it. Just make sure you eat a lot of beans or lentils or tofu.


When I first became vegan, I was hit with the reality of vitamin/protein differences - I needed to purchase some vitamin supplements. Here's the list I have:

  • Vitamin B12 (vegan source) - $5 a month -
  • Protein Powder - $22 a month -


    These two made a big difference in my life. About 3 months after going vegan I started having some troubles related to protein (I work out a lot and my body wasn't used to the lower intake). I try to hit about 90g of protein a day (I am a reasonably athletic 6' male). I think a lot of vegans downplay the issues involved with protein - it's the source of a TON of jokes in the vegan community - but the truth is a lot of vegans simply don't get enough protein. And then they fall back into eating meat because they didn't know better. Which is really pretty silly because it's incredibly easy to supplement if you can't get it in your diet.


    Other than what I've mentioned above, here's some things to consider (this list is HEAVILY biased towards a lazy, no-cook approach. If you have any cooking skill, just cook your own veggie meals, they're awesome, cheaper and fresher than anything listed below, but this is for the lazy days):

  • If you like cheese, vegan cheese substitutes cost about the same as dairy cheese
  • If you like milk, vegan milk (ANY type) is typically cheaper, better for you, and better for the environment than dairy milk
  • Most oils, spices, salts, flavorings - are already vegan. There's no real change needed here. Butter costs more than vegetable oil anyway.
  • Most BBQ sauce, buffalo sauce, spicy sauce, etc - all vegan generally.
  • Most chips and junk food is already vegan. Except for the "flavored" sour cream/cheese type chips.
  • If you like easy food/frozen food, Target sells a whole boatload of vegan microwave stuff (Gardein and others). "Chicken" nuggets, Fried "fish" sticks, "Chicken" wings, etc. Even Ben & Jerry's has a bunch of dairy-free vegan ice cream.
  • Speaking of dessert, vegan desserts are cheaper and easier to make (and safer!! you can lick the spoon - no eggs!). And they taste way better.
  • If you like burgers/hot dogs, check out Beyond the Meat. It's now cheaper than beef and is freaking amazing. They even sell it at Target now.
  • Most bread is already vegan (just check the label). Vegan bread is generally cheaper than non-vegan.
  • Most cereal is already vegan (just check the label).
  • Most restaurants in the US charge less for veggie-based items. Although it is VERY true that you'll have a much more restricted menu choice.
  • Fries are generally vegan, except for a few places (McDonalds, Buffalo Wild Wings, Smash Burger are the only ones around here that don't have vegan fries)


    Finally, there are a few things I'd like to point out in MY PERSONAL OPINION that might turn you "off" of vegan foods if you try them off the bat (a lot of people buy terrible choices and then say "vegan alternatives are bad". No, they are just poor choices lol)

  • Avoid buying Daiya products if you want a realistic cheese/dairy alternative. They are the lowest common denominator. They are readily available everywhere for cheap, but they don't taste very good. Try to find Miyoko's or Follow Your Heart instead.
  • Some substitute items are coconut based, or cashew based, or oat based, or whatever-based. There is a reason that 50 alternatives exist. Some people like some, some people like others. You know how you go to the store, and there are 50 different BBQ sauces, and the ONE you like is sold out, and you're super bummed? Yeah, same thing for vegan items - brand differences, tastes, and preferences exist - just because it's vegan doesn't mean it's any different than other products. Too many people say "vegan food" when really that lump-category doesn't exist.


    The best advice I can give is to JUST TRY IT. Just go a few days making vegan food. You don't need to say "I'M GOING VEGAN", you don't need to have some public moment - you can just privately try it out. It's pretty fun!
u/ThotlineBling_ · 5 pointsr/xxfitness

If you have a Costco card, they sell a bigger tub (a little under 3 lbs) and it's cheaper. The thumbnails on that link allow you to see the ingredient list.

I just bought this Orgain Protein Powder in chocolate. I mixed almond milk + tablespoon of peanut butter + two cups of this protein powder. Tastes pretty good and it's pretty cheap. :)

u/futuremo · 4 pointsr/bodybuilding

There are also plant protein powders with no soy if you just want to avoid it altogether.

Here's what I use, tastes really good.

But if you really want soy, here's some info so you can decide for yourself. Looks like you should be fine as long as you're not using excessive amounts.

My husband can't take dairy either, and he mixes this protein powder with almond milk. It's not too bad!

u/team_pancakes · 3 pointsr/vegan


I do, I usually have a scoop or two a day. I like blends. True Nutrition vegan protein optimizer is my favorite (45% pea, 45% rice, 10% hemp). And it's cheap, $9/lb. You can also build your own blend on their website, it's super easy. And they have a coupon that saves you 5% off site-wide, never expires "GOVEGAN"

I also hear good things about Orgain, but haven't tried it. Saw it on amazon earlier for $17 ($8.50/lb)

u/Aidtor · 3 pointsr/neoliberal
u/Marcus_Petronius · 3 pointsr/financialindependence

I break out with acne every time I drink a whey shake, so I switched to plant-based protein powders a few years ago. I tried a few hemp powders and they tasted awful. I found a powder I really like from the Orgain brand. It's comparable in taste and texture to some of the whey powders I used to drink. They sell it at Costco in Southern California on sale at $24 for 2.74 lbs, which I stock up on, otherwise it's $30 normally. You can also get it off Amazon.

Note: Do not get Vanilla bean, it tastes awful.

u/ceeface · 3 pointsr/stilltrying

I've tried pretty much every vegan protein powder out there, and my top favorites are Garden of Life Greens & Protein and Orgain Organic Protein-- both in chocolate. I've tried Aloha recently and was not thrilled with the flavor or texture at all, so I'd skip that brand. Vega is okay but is more expensive than the rest and is not organic, so I just crossed it out on my list.

If you need to add more protein and require a vegetarian option, I'd just suggest quinoa, beans, legumes, eggs, and nuts. I've been a vegetarian for more than half of my life, and those have always been my go-to's. But if having issues eating in general is hard, just do a double serving of protein powder a day (in a green smoothie for extra calories/nutrition) to meet those goals.

u/BarbellCappuccino · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

Seconding Orgain! Also, very affordable at Costco or Amazon.


My next try after I use up what I have is True Nutrition Vegan Optimizer - More flavors and a slightly better price, but mostly just more flavors!

u/joydeeann · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

Non-whey and non-plant, so are you basically specifically looking for egg protein recommendations?

I usually recommend Orgain, but it's plant based. However, it tastes great! And it's easy to get at Costco or Amazon.

u/santoxeu · 3 pointsr/vancouver

I like this brand protein powder, chocolate flavour. It doesn't taste horrible mixed with only water, and it dissolves well if you let it sit for at least half an hour.

Also, have you tried dried bean curd? Cheap, and according to the nutrition label on my package, one sheet/serving has 50g of protein.

u/Scrub_Life_Art · 2 pointsr/Fitness

The Orgain Organic protein is dairy free and is probably one of the best vegan proteins I've had.

You can pick it up at your local Costco or Sam's club.

Also amazon link for anyone interested:

u/DeludedOldMan · 2 pointsr/steroids

This works for me:

And you can try almond milk instead of dairy.

Add a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter, a banana, and, for an extra 240 calorie kick, 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) of olive oil.

u/Diesl · 2 pointsr/starterpacks

Start goin to the gym and drink this after, maybe mix in some fruit as well. And snack on peanut butter. Each spoonful is almost 100 calories.

u/-life_starts_now- · 2 pointsr/loseit

I use a variety. I have some unflavored soy protein isolate in bulk that I add a tablespoon to my morning smoothie.

I have Orgain Pea/Brown rice stuff. Its pretty good in all the flavors I've tried so far.

I also use Hemp:

I also eat a lot of nuts and seeds. Hemp seeds are amazing. They make smoothies extra creamy.

u/J-Dragon007 · 2 pointsr/veganfitness

salted caramel was the first I've tried. Honestly, it probably is the best out of like 8 different protein powder brands/flavors I've tried, but if you don't have the money, this is probably a lot better.

It's unavailable atm, but it costs less than half of vivolife and tastes about the same (granted it's different flavors).

And the answer to your question: not as good as I expected, but still one of if not the best I've tried.

u/Theriley106 · 2 pointsr/vegan

Have you tried this stuff? It's what I use. It doesn't blend as well as Whey did, but it's much better than Vega IMO.

u/hornypineapple · 2 pointsr/nutrition
  1. I go a mix of plain and vanilla. ALWAYS unsweetened. They add sugar to it for no reason. It's plenty tasteful without it. Almond milk tastes like drinking an almond. If you haven't' seen the process, imagine soaking shredded almonds in water then straining it. It's pretty good but different. I stopped using milk for several reasons (won't get into it, but dairy in general I cut out a lot of). You can use water and it's not bad, but Almond Milk gives is that extra flavor and more vitamins like you said.

  2. Blueberries, pineapple, bananas (cut up and put into a plastic freezer bag) and mangoes. I used to buy them non frozen and freeze myself, but it's more expensive and makes no sense. Occasionally green apple (not frozen but not a bad idea now that I think about it.) Sometimes I get like a berry mix but usually stick to those. I don't mix them all in and I use very little. At first I used more out of being scared of tasting something gross, but after a while you'll notice you'll want less and less fruit and use just enough to remove the bitterness that is liquefied greens. I can't drink those strawberry/peanut butter/sugar loaded shakes people get anymore. If it's not slightly bitter with a faint hit of fruit (and I mean faint) I don't care for it anymore.

  3. I use pumpkin seeds, flax, almonds (cause why not?) and depending on what kind of shake I make, I will use Almond Butter/Nut butters (Trader Joe's sells cheap butters and they have nothing but nuts). You can use cashews and stuff like that. Whatever kind you snack on you can toss in there. Also depending on what you wanna add nutrient wise you can get them at the store and try them out. You don't really taste them too much, but you get the bonus of eating them.

  4. Mostly each day. I may forget or not be hungry enough. Sometimes for breakfast only, sometimes for breakfast and a light dinner or post workout. The thing about the shakes is they cut the fiber down on the foods almost entirely, so after you drink them you're full for an hour or so then looking for a snack sometimes. Specially after a workout. I make them fresh each time I want one. Making them ahead of time could be nice but a lot of unnecessary work. They take like 3 minutes to make one. Most of that is pulling the stuff out and putting it away.

    Once you start making these you'll find what you like/don't like. Start off small with ingredients you trust then work your way into the dark side. If you told me several years ago you drink things that have garlic, broccoli, peas and apples in it, I'd gag. Now, I can't get enough of it.

    I don't know if you are into fitness (fitness whole pizza in my mouf!) or just want to be a bit healthier, but either way you will fall in love with this kind of stuff. Specially when you get creative, start making random things and actually notice the difference it makes in everything. I feel more energetic, I am not bogged down or full feeling. If I do feel full, it's light. I wouldn't go for a run after I chug one, but taking a nap is not even near my list of wants after. Without being gross and just blunt, going number 2 is extremely quick, smooth and honestly reassuring your body is liking this (you'll see why).

    For protein replacement, I use this:

    It's light, uses peas/spirulina (more greens!) for it's protein and adds a nice kick when you need it. I usually get the vanilla bean, but chocolate isn't bad. They just added Matcha which might be next for me...

    Here's what a typical daily shake looks like this for me, workout or not:

  • 3-4 handfuls of frozen kale/chard/spinach PUSHED into the cup (technically I fist it, but let's keep it clean like our diet) until the cup is half full or more
  • A light handful of your fruit of choice. Depending on what you use here, your shake may turn weird colors. My average shake color is dark green. Blueberries dampen the color a lot too, make it almost look like gross mud. But it tastes good, I promise.
  • Sprinkle nuts/extras you want
  • 1-2 scoops of protein (add this last otherwise it'll cake at the bottom)

    30 seconds of blending and boom, you're set.
u/bjanaszek · 2 pointsr/climbharder

> Vegan protein powder exists although it is more expensive than regular stuff.

I've used both Orgain and Sunwarrior. The Sunwarrior stuff has BCAAs, while Orgain does not. I find both mix up pretty well in smoothies.

Also, for diet stuff, check out the No Meat Athlete. Lots of good recipes and other info.

Question about soy-based protein: I've heard in some circles that any soy-based product that isn't fermented is basically nutritional garbage. I don't know enough to have a strong opinion either way, but my wife and I tend to avoid it when we can (though will happily eat it when eating out).

u/CarlsbadCO · 2 pointsr/veganfitness

you can easily eat a shitton of protein on a vegan diet if you supplement a bit:

With a little effort you can gain LMM as fast vegan as you can eating animal flesh.

Saying you cannot get enough protein on a vegan diet carries no weight = you just need to learn more.

Source, me:

I have faced no challenges other than letting people know you don't need to be anal about macro anything as long as you eat mainly non processed whole grain whole foods low in oils/fats w/ a protein shake or two per day to perform however you want athletically or looks wise

u/StillThriving · 1 pointr/gainit
u/comfykhan · 1 pointr/vegetarian This is the stuff I get. I hated whey protein, it never quite sat right in my stomach. With this stuff I can drink a shake and go for a run without getting an upset stomach. The taste is better too I think.

u/dohlfhauldhagen · 1 pointr/veganrecipes

I'm not sure if this would be what you're looking for, but you could try using a plant based protein powder like this and making a smoothie with it. Add peanut butter for more protein, as well as bananas, frozen fruit, or whatever you like with some dairy free milk of your choice.

u/legbreaker7 · 1 pointr/vegan

Not to be "that guy" but buy this stuff instead. Good protein sources, FDA approved, solid amino's in it. It also tastes bomb and is fairly cheap for a vegan protein.

u/CatEarsAndButtPlugs · 1 pointr/vegan

Vegan athlete here who bikes, runs, rock climbs, and lifts. I get about 90-100 grams of protein a day (I'm also very small) and it's not hard.

There's a ton of brands that make plant based protein powders instead of whey. Vega is a very common one, but the consistency is a little thick. Orgain protein powder is tasty but doesn't have the best protein to carb ratio for my macros. I'm currently working through the Kaizen vanilla vegan protein powder which is 140 calories a scoop and 25g of protein I think. I also have a ride based protein powder that's 110 calories a scoop with 31g of protein but does need to be mixed with some fruit to make it taste good. Also make sure to mix your drinks with plant/nut milks for a better taste. You can buy large bags of protein powder off myprotein and there's a few vegan options. A lot of these protein powders list amino acid ratios on the tub and all of them are fairly decent. I've used a variety of brands and they've all done the trick.

I drink a lot of cashew and soy milk (2-3 cups a day, mostly cashew milk) so I tend to get my calcium and what not from that. I also take a daily vegan multivitamin, but you only really need to suppliment B12. I've also always taken a D3 suppliment in the winter for emotional support and there's even vegan versions of that just make sure it's from lichen sources.

It can be hard getting in omega-3s but luckily there's lots of options. One option is Gardein fishless fish which is fortified with an algae based omega blend. Another option is adding ground flax or chia seeds to a protein shake. There's also hemp seeds which not only have omega fatty acids but also have a decent amount of protein.

I get my iron from leafy greens. I like making green smoothies with lots of spinach and some berries for vitamin c to boost absorption. I track my intake daily with myfitnesspal and tend to meet my iron goals, if not go over them. Lots of greens in general have iron, even broccoli which is fantastic roasted with a little nutritional yeast. You can also get iron from beans.
