"plant-based sport nutrition". 

 

Well, during a race most folks reply on sugar - which comes from a variety of plants.  No tmany folks uck into a steak at the 23km aid station. Nuts, bread, other carbs, coke.  All plant based. 

As recovery fuel, it is obviously going to differ from normal dairy protein sources.  But really, does "plant-based" technically exclude all animal products? 

Maybe it's just mostly plant.  Or contains plant.

Not sure, seems like a minefield. A cow eats grass, so.....:whistling:

Do you eat meat for the taste or for the nutrients ? If the food tasted like meat then would you change to a vegan based food ? I am not sure. I have changed from rice to cauliflower rice as well as from spaghetti to zucchini spaghetti. Hardly any difference and better for insulin responses.

Mmmmmm….. Am I starting to go to the dark side ?

So far you are replacing plant with plant, so we'll still talk to you. When I hear you mention Vegan Bacon, that's when we start the intervention. :)

But seriously, if you are doing it on "principle" then replacing meat with soy products isn't the most environmentally responsible thing you can do.

 Carrots at the aid stations ?

Don't knock 'em, my nutrition for longer rides is water, a banana & a carrot as a backup.

Carrots travel well, can be eaten with one hand, can be eaten over time with little loss or mess, can be fully consumed (no rubbish) plus don't cost much so you can just toss them in the compost if uneaten post 4hours ride in the back pocket in the sun.

It’s no biggie. You bring your own shit to races anyway. It’s a bonus if your nutrition is the course stuff, but it doesn’t matter.

If there is Carrots at aid stations, someone better bring the hummus.

They say on their website their products are vegan-certified (whatever that means). If vegan, definitely no animal products.

Surely if it's vegan-certified, it won't just say it on the website, rather it would be mentioned at every possible opportunity.
