In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Leto revealed the secret to his vegan muscle mass, saying, “I’m trying to gain a lot of weight. It means I have to eat every couple of hours—and I’m terrible at eating a lot.” Later in the interview, he snacked on some vegan tacos, perhaps spilling the secret to his awesome new body: healthy, hearty vegan snacks.

In addition to a good resistance-training regimen, the building blocks for any muscle-building program are increased protein and calories. Check out these vegan snacks that are full of protein and free of both cholesterol and cruelty:
