First and foremost, BARE Lean uses animal based products within the recipes whereas, BARE Lean Vegetarian does not. BARE Lean Vegetarian is designed to be ‘lacto-ovo-vegetarian’ which means we have used eggs and dairy, however has a Vegan swap on almost every recipe. The recipes that don’t have a vegan swap are heavily egg based (such as the frittata) so I haven’t given a swap as it may change the integrity of the meal.
There are only 4 recipes that have crossed over from BARE Lean to BARE Lean vegetarian as they were favourites, so I wanted to make sure I added them in for everyone to enjoy. This means, the rest of the recipes are BRAND NEW and all tailored you and your goals.
When it comes to the planners and shopping lists – these are completely different (as there are new recipes).
The Resources are similar but do have differences regarding nutrients of importance for vegetarian diets, and the cooking resources are all changed to be vegetarian based.
The exercise portion is exactly the same as BARE Lean, these workouts have not changed (as they are only examples of what types of workouts you can do!). Our guides are based off 30 minutes of exercise a day, 5 days a week, meaning can do whatever movement that you enjoy and still hit your goals.
If buying the bundle please note the above, as the resources and exercises will be the same/similar. There is still a HUGE amount of support, new tailored and interchangeable recipes and community. If buying the bundle, you will receive over 200 recipes that are workable within the guides – how amazing is that!
A few FAQ’s below about BARE Lean Vegetarian:
IS IT VEGAN FRIENDLY?
BARE Lean Vegetarian is ‘lacto-ovo-vegetarian’ which means we have included eggs and dairy, however there are MANY recipes that you can have if you are Vegan.
In BARE Lean Vegetarian there are 120 recipes in total. We have 37 recipes that are fully vegan, 69 recipes that have 1 small swap (like top with feta etc, so swap for a plant based cheese) and roughly 20 that have not been given a vegan swap, however that’s not to say that you cannot use that recipe, it might just be more of a difficult thing to do.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE BARE GUIDE?
BARE is a downloadable guide, so it will be with you forever as soon as you download. We have the online portal if you ever lose the guide to re-download.
WHAT LEVEL OF COOKING EXPERIENCE DO I NEED?
All of the recipes are designed to be quick and easy, and beginners are super welcome and will have a community of support available! You do not need any prior cooking level, our resources will help you through your journey. Each week, you will get more and more confident in the kitchen – I can promise you that! If you’re an experienced cook, I promise you’ll enjoy these delicious recipes just as much as the beginners!
I’VE TRIED SO MANY PROGRAMS BEFORE, WHAT MAKES BARE DIFFERENT?
BARE first and foremost is NOT a diet or about restriction in any way, we’ve done all the calculations for you and you are supported by a community that understands that food is a part of life. You won’t find strict meal plans, complicated recipes or expensive ingredients here. BARE gives you all the resources you need to build a healthy relationship with food but most importantly, it shows you that you can cook and enjoy all your favourite foods, while reaching for your goals.
We’ve also worked really hard to give you more recipes so you have CHOICE and you can eat YOUR way. We want you to make a healthy change, while loving every minute/meal!
