High Protein Vegan Meal Plan for Lean Fat Loss (Low Carb)

Super high protein: 101g (plant based) per day to pair with weight training (great for vegan athletes!). Use this easy vegan meal prep for weight loss and for the school or work week.

This is how I've been eating since gyms have closed. I've been LOVING this way of plant based eating: eating lower carbs (specifically starches) since my body doesn't need as much currently, and I feel amazing!

*Serving sizes and the calorie count listed are NOT for “restriction” but just used for reference and education. I ALWAYS eat to my hunger level when eating whole foods. The only time I restrict my eating is when I know I’m eating way too many processed foods, or the serving size of a processed food is too large. However, this plan is whole food focused and I eat as much as I’m hungry for.
