BRO MEAL #5 – High Protein Vegan Bowl

BRO MEAL #5 – High-Protein Vegan Bowl

Okay, due to popular request, we’re going to do a vegan bro meal today!

To give credit where it’s due, I got this one from a vegan bodybuilder YouTuber named Brian Turner, check out the full video here ->

Remember our BRO MEAL requirements:

– Meal must contain simple whole sources of protein, good carbs, and fat
– Portion sizes must be easy to measure
– Meal must contain simple-to-prep, single macro nutrient foods

BRO MEAL #5 – High-Protein Vegan Bowl

– 1 cup pinto beans
– 1 cup corn
– 1 avocado
– 1 cup quinoa (dry)
– salsa

Pinto beans can be from a can, or cooked yourself. Same goes for the corn. Cook the quinoa on the stove, in your rice cooker, or however else you want. Mix everything together, and add any amount of salsa you like. Top with avocado.

Nutrition breakdown per serving (recipe makes 3):

SIDE NOTE – from a macronutrient standpoint, though this one does have a decent amount of protein, it also has a lot of carbs. Just think about and account for this and understand how it fits into your overall meal plan.
