They said it couldn’t be done! But you know better.

You can build and maintain muscle on a plant-based diet, you just need recipes that make getting the protein you need a whole lot easier… and a heck of a lot tastier.

Here are 7 high-protein plant-based recipes to get your gains on track.

And remember: while supplements can be helpful when you’re building muscle on a vegetarian or vegan diet, we always recommend nailing the nutrition you’re getting from real food first.
