80 Day Obsession Sample Plant-Based Meal Plans
The question I get asked the most on social media...other than where is your sports bra from (lol) is "what are some plant based meal ideas for 80 Day Obsession?"
While I didn't do 80 Day Obsession as a vegan, I am following the vegan plan my second time around because I eat plant-based about 95% of the time so it makes sense for my body. The next question I get a lot is can you bounce back and forth between the regular plan and the vegan plan. The experts might disagree with this so take my advice with a grain of salt, but here is what I would suggest. The macros were carefully calculated for this program so if you want to go all in and follow the program for the absolute best results you can get then I would choose a plan and stick to the foods on the food list for the plan. You can eat plant-based on the regular plan, but the protein options are much more limited and you would be heavily dependent on more processed options like tofu and veggie burgers with some vegan shakeology and tempeh thrown in there. That could get pretty boring and it's not as nutrient dense because you have so little variety. So I wouldn't recommend it, personally.
All that being said, if you're stick with the regular plan and want to eat a few plant based days then stick to your red list and just have a Meatless Monday where you use tofu, tempeh and shakeology instead of animal protein. Or do 1 meal a day with vegan protein instead of animal protein. The plans I'm about to share are for those of you who choose to follow a plant-based or vegan program. If you are vegetarian, you can add eggs and and things greek yogurt to these plans and I'm pescitarian so you will see that I occasionally incorporate fish as a red. These aren't perfect, but they're here to give you ideas and inspirations for your meal plans and to help you incorporate more plant-based meals into your 80 Day Obsession plan if that's something your'e looking for.
