Veganizing the Meat and Nut Breakfast and Why You Should TooPosted: November 12, 2013 Filed under: Articles, Health 3 Comments
Hey guys, I recently wrote an article for http://www.veganbodybuilding.com on veganizing a meat and nut breakfast. Check it out and let me know what you think! http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page=article_ed_003
Seems like way too much processed soy if you ask me. Three of your six days has a processed soy protein versus something like lentils, kale, quinoa, beans, almond butter, peas, etc. I am also now doing a chia seed breakfast pudding in the morning which is very high in protein and clean.
Beefless strip ingredients (No thanks!) : Water, vital wheat gluten, isolated soy protein, natural flavors, barley malt, expeller pressed canola oil, garlic powder, yeast extract, onion powder, organic evaporated cane juice, red bell pepper flakes, sea salt, citric acid, spices, pea protein, carrot fiber, organic beet root fiber, sunflower oil.
– What in this ingredient list is good for your body?
Hey Patrick, the two foods that have isolated soy protein are the Gardein Chick’n Scallopini patties and the Trader Joe’s Beef-Less Strips. Tofurky Sausage has whole organic soybeans as an ingredient, Field Roast is wheat protein based and soy free, and Tempeh Bacon is made of whole fermented soybeans. These were included because they are convenient and tasty options (especially valuable for those who still eat actual meat) and very high sources of protein. Also, this 1 to 2 servings of soy foods for breakfast on some days has no proven negative consequences to my knowledge and I trust the opinion of Dr. Michael Greger higher than most. http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-much-soy-is-too-much/ Thank you for your feedback though, I’m happy to discuss all issues people can have with the specifics of diet. Also, the intention of the article is the simplicity of such a breakfast with usually a “meat” and “nut” which provide the ample protein and fat in which I discussed.
