Vegan Athlete Diet

One of the things about Beachbody I’ve been very happy to see is that they really listen to input from customers & coaches.  It’s been great to see that the updated nutrition guides and new fitness programs have more recipes for vegetarians and vegans!

Here’s one I cook regularly. It is from the Focus T25™ Fitness Program. Enjoy!
