This is a post mainly for all you vegans and vegetarians out there!
Lets take it from the start.
If youre trying to loose weight, you need to burn calories
If you want to burn more calories, you need a high metabolism
If you want to increase your metabolism, you need more muscle mass
Muscles food is protein
No protein = no muscles

Now a lot of people may say vegans cant get all the amino acids they need. Well i have some good news!
There are so many meatless non-animal related completely organic foods that are a great source of protein!!

1. Quinoa
2. Soya beans
3. Tofu
4. Nuts
5. Beans

And thats just from the top of my head!

So lets go for my favourate black eyed beans! They are just sooo delicious! They smell amazing and are full full full of health benefits!

I usually have them with chopped tomatoes and squeezed lemon juice; this time i wanted a little change and added some greek feta cheese; not too much as cheese is very fat dense.
