  1. I'm a vegetarian
  2. I go to the gym 6 times a week

I know the whole 30 program is anti-protein powders, snacking, and dependence on fruits. But as a vegetarian who goes to the gym a lot, these help me get through the day without energy fatigue, one of my snacks is a banana with almond butter/cashew butter or unsweetened protein powder that I blend with bananas and unsweetened almond milk. I was wondering if anyone here was a vegetarian and an athlete and how they managed to get around this.

We recommend you eat whole foods as much as possible as they are far superior nutritionally. Whatever you are using as your vegetarian protein sources, pack that up (an egg, sans the white is a good option) with a half cup of sweet potato, beets or other high carb veggie and eat that after your workout.
