The Female Vegan Athlete’s Plate

by Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Animal-based foods contain inflammatory sources of fats and proteins.  Food is just language to our bodies’ cells. Cells are pathways of communication that control everything from our metabolism to our brain function. They do it all. Depending what we eat we are telling them to transform…

Athletes or active individuals need high-quality sources of nutrition, not inflammatory-promoting foods or foods with cholesterol, toxins, and contaminants from animals. Because these foods are so highly processed, we can never really be sure what happens behind the scenes of their production. We need foods provide raw, living nutrients your cells easily recognize and can process into energy, along with care for your muscles, heart, and overall body.

The female Athlete plate can be organized in:

  1. (A) 30% Protein, 50% Carbs, and 20% Fats
  2.  (B) 40% Protein, 50% Carbs, and 10% Fats or
  3.  (C) 40% Protein, 40% Carbs, and 20% Fats
