Kyle Buckingham’s Veganuary Challenge

South African Ironman Champion and plant-based athlete, Kyle Buckingham, shares some inspiration of meals you can make this Veganuary with what he has in his fridge.

‘What’s in my fridge? I often get asked what do I eat daily while being on a plant-based diet, but the most common question I get asked a lot is how do I get my protein intake in by not eating meat. Well, I hope to answer some of your questions in this video!

‘As an elite athlete, I still get in my usual 115g of protein per day (1.6g/per kg of body weight) which is the recommended allowance for optimal recovery while maintaining muscle growth as an athlete. For the average person, it would be a lot lower than 1.6.
