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.

By Karen Leibowitz
Dr. Joanne L. Mumola Williams is a holistic nutritionist who recently
released a vegan nutrition and recipe e-book called Health Begins in the
Kitchen: Delicious and Easy Vegan Recipes and Seasonal Food Plan.
Dr. Williams discusses the benefits of a diet that is balanced with cooked
and raw seasonal foods. In this e-book, you can find a wide variety of
recipes. Some of the recipes include dairy-free fettuccine Alfredo,
Ratatouille on creamy polenta, veggie sushi, and the ultimate vegetarian
lasagna. She also shares healthy and simple ingredient substitutions to
make in your own favorite recipes without compromising great taste.
Dr. Mumola Williams believes this e-book can help anyone achieve a,
guilt-free, joyful, and healthy relationship with food.

12) VEGAN BODYBUILDERS – PLANTBUILT
Today's Hulks Go Green
By Laura McGuiness
The idea of vegan bodybuilders sounds like an oxymoron to me and I'm sure
it does to most of the public, as well. Knowing this misconception exists,
a new organization, PlantBuilt, strives to dismember that fallacy.
Founded in the fall of 2012, PlantBuilt is a non-profit organization
consisting of vegan athletes who whole-heartedly believe a plant-based
diet is for the greater good. Ranging from ethical vegans to
nutritionally-conscious vegans, the group is comprised of twenty members
whose passions include healthy, compassionate living and body building.
PlantBuilt was asked to debut their relatively new group at the 2013
Naturally Fit Super Show. This event takes place annually in Austin, Texas
and features over twenty fitness sports and competitions, an expo
showcasing local fitness companies' products and services, a muscle car
show, and a Special Olympics meet and greet with the competitors. The
company who sponsors the Naturally Fit Super Show is known for their
facilitation of drug-free fitness events and the promotion of healthy and
natural products, services, and people.
PlantBuilt will be accepting applications for new members in the fall. If
you are a vegan and would like to join this competitive fitness group,
visit their website at: [ http://www.plantbuilt.com ].
