I'm about to start an intensive workout regimen. My main goal is to lose fat and build muscle. I've read Brendan's book, "Thrive: The Vegan Nutrition Guide to Optimal Performance in Sports and Life." The problem is that I'm broke, and I can't afford all the ingredients under Brendan's recommended shopping list. So, I'm wanting help in reducing a shopping list down to the fundamental basics. Ingredients that are versatile and super-effective in speeding up the recovery process, whilst providing lots of fiber and protein. Also, I'd like to know which Vega Products are essential for a beginner vegan-athlete.
This means a lot to me, so, thank you in advance to anyone with feedback.
