Better and Stronger, that’s what the vegan motto should be. As someone who frequents the gym, it was a bit scary switching to veganism as all that I heard prior about the lifestyle was that continuing to eat enough protein was very difficult.
I’m grateful I ignored that, cause the truth is there’s so much protein to be had in a vegan diet! This fact makes post-workout meals so much better, as you can be healthy and get stronger all at the same time!
If you’re looking for simple, yet effective, post-workout dinners you can turn to for vegan gains, here are 8 I’d recommend.
Let’s get into it:
Chickpea, Mango, and Curried Cauliflower Salad
This salad can be pre-made and saved for every post-workout meal, whether it be a filling afternoon lunch or a savoury and sweet dinner!
Quinoa Stuffed Poblano Peppers
Low maintenance and delicious. Add some hot peppers on this to add even more of a kick.
Vegan Butternut Squash and Tempeh Tacos
Add some spice to your post-workout routine with some healthy and protein-packed tacos.

Remember, physical exercise is only half the battle—eating right brings it all full circle.
