Stan Veniaminov is a personal trainer based in Bondi, Australia. Read about his tips on how to keep fit and stay healthy when on a vegan diet. ‘I think being vegan and fit can be bit tricky, but as long as you focus on eating food high in nutrition, especially essential amino acids, then you will be fine. Lets take breakfast for example. First of all when I wake up during 1st hour of being awake I drink around 1-1.5L of water to make sure body is well hydrated and energised to kickstart my daily activities. Then, after 2 hours, I make breakfast, usually smoothie or acai bowl, loaded with oats, bananas, peanut butter or walnuts, chia seeds, crunchy granola (my fav) and plant-based protein (PranaOn is my fav).

With four layers of heavenly deliciousness, it’s super light and luscious – no need to save it for special occasions!

Stan is a personal trainer based in Bondi, Australia. A few years ago, he decided to go vegan. He tells us how to be fit and vegan. Tell us how and why you decide to go vegan? I’ve just started becoming more conscious, wasn’t feeling right while eating meat, kind of disgusted feeling when your plate is covered in blood. Then, friends of mine send me few videos on animal cruelty and that put final stop to consuming animal products. It’s the best decision I have ever made.
There’s a new word on the block: ‘V’ for vegan. Suddenly every restaurant and cafe worth checking out is offering new and exciting food/beverage options we’ve never had before. Motivated by health, environment protection and animal rights, this movement towards more ethical and healthy food is sweeping the globe. It’s more than a trend, we can safely say that veganism is here to stay. Reducing the amount of meat and dairy you eat has proven health benefits and the rise in plant-based food options is great for anyone looking to get healthier in 2017, whether they are a strictly ‘vegan’ or not.
