Meatless Recovery Meal

One of the things I continue to struggle with is trying to replenish and recover my body after a tough workout at the gym. Apparently it’s suggested that you intake a 4:1 carbohydrate to protein mix, but it’s also proportionate to how much you weigh and how hard you work, so it’s a tricky thing to calculate. I’ve always had a hard time trying to take in protein so going meatless for a month was a concern for me. One option for me was to drink protein shakes but buying a giant tub of powder wasn’t that appealing to me.

So what’s a vegetarian to do?

What about a spicy tofu and avocado salad and a tropical fruit platter?

Sounds awesome.

Pink grapefruit, pineapple, and mango

Spicy tofu and avocado salad = mix up a dressing of soy, sesame oil, and chili sauce. I wanted to add some natural peanut butter but I didn’t have the foresight to warm it up to loosen up the texture.
