Today was one week since becoming a vegan, so I decided to make this a cheat day of sorts. (When I say cheat day, I mean I ate larger amounts of the foods I was already eating, and didn’t worry too much about my macros).
I’m going to write a separate blog post about my day today In the lifestyle category, but in a nut shell, today was for re-energizing and relaxing.
The Sunwarrior protein powder I’ve been using has been killing it for me, and but I’m almost out of it. I’ve been mixing it with an un-sweetened brown rice protein powder, which unfortunately tastes horrible.
I ordered MRM’s plant based powder which is half the price of sunworrior with close to the same quantity. I’ll let you know how it goes. Most of the supplements I’ve tried have been fairly good tasting even on their own, and the nutritional benefits have been impressive to say the least.
Super Important: Go buy yourself a good creatine monohydrate, and BCAA blend. I just went to my nearest Super Supplements and picked up Optimum Nutrition brand of both products. This is going to absolutely ensure you don’t lose muscle mass especially if you’re trying to find a more sustainable source of protein for a good price like I am. (Shown: Michael Monroe and the Suppliments you need)
Other than all that, I ordered a whole bunch of sample pea protein’s from truenutrition.com. This is a great website for buying supplements in bulk regardless of whether or not you’re a vegan. If I end up liking any of the samples I try from them, I’ll start ordering my powders in bulk this way. Until then I will continue trying different brands and kinds of protein until I find one that’s cheap, and delicious.
Once again, If you have any recommendations on any products, recipes, cosmetics I need to try on this new lifestyle journey, please comment and let me know.
