Vegan lentil curry

On an intense training day, an athlete should aim for an intake of 1.2-1.7 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. For a vegan who eliminates all animal foods from his diet, this is no easy task. The recipe below from our Etixx ambassador Charlot Pauwels contains no ingredients of animal origin and is rich in vegetable protein sources. Extremely suitable, therefore, for vegetarian or vegan athletes.
