My boyfriend is an athlete. He runs 2 marathons a year, can do 1,500 pull-ups per workout, and spends about 50% of his time planning other athletic milestones. When we went vegan, we were both worried that he wouldn’t be able to keep up with this kind of lifestyle.
Truth is, vegans do have be a little careful about making sure they get their vitamins. BUT, no more so than non-vegans. The only thing that’s different is WHAT you have to watch for. Vitamins B12 and D, and of course, protein and iron.
So, I try to find creative ways to sneak protein powders and other enriched ingredients into our everyday. This morning, I incorporated some hemp protein into our waffles to make these amazing, gluten free, DELICIOUS fluffy dream cakes. I topped them with basically everything in my fridge.
Recipe here. Enjoy and then hit the weights!
