I think I spend less than half what I spent when I was eating meat.

Cooking time: 14 minutes.
1. Chop up a kumara/sweet potato (the orange kind, purple isn't the best for mashing) very small so it cooks quickly. Boil in water with two tablespoons quinoa (optional if feeling fancy). Drain and mash with one tablespoon sweet chili sauce.
2. While kumara is boiling, chop broccoli and sautee in a pan with frozen corn and peas for 5 mins. Or whatever fucking veggies you want. Add a can of kidney beans. Or whatever fucking canned beans/legumes you want. Drain and rinse the kidney beans first if you don't routinely eat a lot of beans. Season to taste.
Done. Save some for lunch tomorrow.
I abruptly switched from lots of meat to 100% plant-based, and my colon microbiome wasn't used to all the extra fibre. I was severely gassy - to the point it was actually painful - for two weeks.
1. More tofu/fake meat, less beans and legumes, at least initially. Still eat the beans/legumes because they're freaking great, just not every meal like I was. Ease into them. Also drain and rinse them first as this gets rid of the oligosaccharides which you probably can't tolerate a lot of yet. Need to build up your population of healthy bugs in your gut.
2. White rice, potatoes, white spagetti instead of brown rice and wholegrain pasta, initially. Just less fibre until you're ready.
3. Cut up your veggies extra small, chew lots. This just makes it easie for you to digest and means there's no chunks of undigested food getting through to your colon - just the fibre.
After a few weeks you can ease back up the fibre and beans etc. Just gotta ease into it.
I remember seeing something about the difference, but was it really that large?
Im doing soy protein shakes due to lactose intolerance.
complete myth. There are chemically similar compounds in soy but they have no effect in the human body.
Soy protein is pretty much the same as animal protein minus the saturated fat. The only real difference is in digestibility, so you have to eat maybe 5% more vegetable protein to get the same amount of animal protein.
I highly doubt that cow's milk is any better as a performance nutrient than soy milk.
The latest study I saw showed that soy protein attenuated strength gains following a 12 week study period. Two groups were given a 27g? protein dairy or soy supplement; supplemental dairy protein did not show a greater increase in strength vs control while supplemental soy protein resulted in less strength gains than the control diet
