More Vegan Bodybuilding

I am also reading Gluten Free Vegan-Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness Nutrition: Building Muscle Fast with Vegan Bodybuilding Recipes and Vegan Muscle Growth Meals. This book has been an amazing source of information too, and builds on the idea that our protein should come from more than soy sources. It starts out by defining exactly what being a gluten free vegan means. It also goes on to give detailed information about all the different ways gluten is hidden. The author reinforces my own theories that soy is not a replacement food, by helping with many other ways to get your protein and fat needs met without the use of soy.
In chapter three the author gives a rundown on deficiencies and how to meet these needs as well.:
Lacking B12- eat more nutritional yeast and rice, hemp and nut milks
Lacking D-more sun, mushrooms, supplements
Calcium deficiency- kale, collards, mustards, orange, sesame seeds, almonds etc.
Iron deficiency- Lentils, spinach, chard, turnip greens, tahine
B6 deficiency-sunflower seeds, pistachios, banana, avocado
And to top off a wonderfully filled small book that is packed with great information the end of the book is filled with resources and lovely recipes that are easy to follow!
