Going green doesn’t mean you have to give up on all the food and drink you love. There are plenty of alternatives out there to keep your diet interesting and varied – plus we have loads of tailor-made vegan supplements to support your training.
As it’s Veganuary, we thought we’d give the spotlight to some of the fitness favourites you might not have realised are vegan-friendly too.
1. BCAA Drink
Crack open one of these pre-workout and you’ll be in for a strong start. Our BCAA Drink is packed with 5g of essential branched-chain amino acids which naturally occur in protein, which helps to build and repair new muscle – super-important for your ve-gains.
Our refreshingly fruity drink also delivers a caffeine hit, which helps to increase endurance and improve concentration, alongside fatigue-busting vitamins B6 and B12.
With no animal products, and zero sugar or carbs – it’s the ideal training fuel.
Rich. Indulgent. Chocolatey. Three words that might not immediately spring to mind when you think of vegan snacks – but bite into one of these bad boys and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
Baked with a delicious dark chocolate dough, coconut oil and a generous sprinkling of dark chocolate chunks, these really are a vegan game changer. What’s more – they pack in 13g of (plant-based) protein per cookie, perfect for helping you hit your daily intake.
After making the clear whey protein, we knew we had to make it vegan-friendly too. If you're looking for a light, fruity alternative to your usual creamy protein shake, clear protein is the perfect alternative.
Choose from lemon & lime, apple & elderflower, pineapple & grapefruit, or simply strawberry to get your boost of 10g of protein at just 56 calories per serving. Our clear protein is the perfect macro and vegan-friendly to refresh you on an afternoon.
Now, we know that peanut butter is probably a cupboard classic that you’re possibly, ever-so-slightly, heavily dependent on. But is it vegan? It might surprise you to know that the answer to that isn’t always a straight up yes.
What’s important is that you can rest assured that our All-Natural Peanut Butter in original smooth or crunchy is totally, 100% vegan-friendly – and has a 30% protein content, which is great news for your macros. Spread, or spoon, away!
Whilst we're on the topic of peanuts...our peanut square is the perfect vegan-friendly, protein-packed snack. 12g of protein per square, and with cacao butter, chocolate chips, and peanutty goodness, what's not to like?

Just completely plant based flavour to enhance your favourite meals.
8. Double Dough Brownie
That's right, you can now get a Vegan Double Dough Brownie. Gooey brownie dough collides with moreish cookie dough, enrobed in plant-based chocolate. And with 13g of protein and 7g of fibre, they're super macro-friendly as well.
