Vegan Menu Plans for Adults 51+

Posted on July 23, 2013 by Nina Casalena, The VRG Blog Editor

Are you in the 51+ age category? If so, you might find these vegan menu plans helpful: four different calorie levels – 1600,1800, 2000, and 2200 – are outlined in order to meet the needs of 51+ age men and women of varying activity levels and budgets.

In general, a 1600-calorie diet should meet the needs of an inactive older female; an 1800-calorie diet should meet the needs of an active older female; a 2000-calorie diet should meet the needs of an inactive older male; and a 2200 calorie diet should meet the needs of an active older male.
