As more people switch to a vegan diet because of the ethics surrounding animal treatment and alleged health benefits, it has grown in popularity in recent years.

It has piqued the interest of athletes, including bodybuilders.

Muscular development is significantly influenced by nutrition. Most experts agree that a daily intake of 0.7-1.0 grams of protein per pound of body weight is ideal for muscle growth. Traditional bodybuilder diets frequently include animal-source foods because they are high in protein and calories. But some transition to a healthier version-a plant-based body-building diet.

Compared to conventional vegan diets, the vegan bodybuilding diet contains more protein while excluding meat and other animal products. This healthier protein source version is growing among bodybuilders. But some struggle to find or prepare it themselves due to the time they dedicate to workouts. 

Luckily, Plant Sumo serves 100% plant-based and ready-to-eat meals to help bodybuilders like you take sufficient protein in a healthier way.

Plant-Based Foods That Promote Muscle Gain

If you want to switch to a plant based diet but are worried about losing lean muscle mass, whether you’re a beginner at the gym or a seasoned athlete, we’ve got you covered.

Here are the six best plant foods for recovery and lean muscle growth.


Iron and protein are both abundant in legumes. To replenish your carbohydrate reserves and to provide a vegan protein source to support muscle growth, try to eat them after your workout.

As fibre is linked to preserving healthy gut bacteria, which promotes optimal digestion, it helps with nutrient absorption. This increases the vegan food’s nutritional value to the fullest.

Additionally, there is a sizable family of beans and lentils to select from. You can incorporate them into various dishes, so you’ll undoubtedly find a flavour – and meal – that you like.

Whole Grains

Whole grains are carbohydrates that are good for your heart. Protein is also present, and some sources are also high in antioxidants.

Whole grains are a prime example of how whole plants frequently have several advantages. Use them as a great source of energy before working out.

Nuts And Seeds

Nuts and seeds have a lot of calories and a lot of protein. For instance, a palmful of walnuts contains about 5 grams of protein. Adding nuts and seeds to your diet is one of the best ways to increase your calorie intake quickly and easily.

Including nuts and seeds in a nutrient-rich meal is advantageous because their fats help the fat-soluble vitamins D, A, K, and E absorb nutrients.

Another recipe-flexible and simple to prepare plant-based protein are lentils. 18 grams of protein are present in one cup of cooked lentils.

Their general blandness is beneficial when trying to include lentils in various recipes. However, you should season them heavily with herbs, spices, and sauces if you intend to eat them alone, with rice, soup, or a stew.


Although it’s a seed, the South American native plant protein known as quinoa is frequently referred to as a grain. Quinoa is a complete protein source because it is one of the few plant-based foods with all nine essential amino acids.

About eight grams of protein can be found in one cup of cooked quinoa. Because it digests quickly and offers the amino acid your body needs in repairing and building muscle tissue, quinoa is an excellent choice for post-workout meals.

Quinoa is a great plant based protein substitute for rice and other grains, and it also works well in salads and veggie bowls.


Tofu, Tempeh, Edamame

Another complete plant protein is soy. All soybean products, including tofu, tempeh, and edamame, are a great source of soy protein and other nutrients.

Compared to tofu, which has 20 grams of protein per cup, cooked edamame has 17 grams. With 15 grams of protein per cup, tempeh has a slightly lower protein content but a higher fat content and a firmer texture.

The least processed of the three, tofu has a softer, custard-like texture that makes it more adaptable for both savoury and sweet dishes, such as smoothies.

Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) states that an adult needs 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram or 0.36 grams per pound of body weight. Even using a conservative estimate, this works out to an average male consuming 56g of protein daily and an average female consuming 46g.

In contrast to animal protein, plant protein is not as easily absorbed by humans. To compensate for their lower absorption in the body, you will need to significantly increase your intake of plant proteins.

Each meal weighs between 300 and 400 grams for one person.
