So many vegan problems because family questions, family’s own diet and negative-health issues that are mostly diet related, and my own being unprepared with food for the day. I am a salt fiend. This’ll take so many days to flush out all over again. But I did get my copy of The China Study in the mail today.
This guy fucking gets it. I’m losing family and friends over here and a large voice in society tells me that what I know as a disease KILLING millions of people, is actually acceptable. There’s no self-love in eating junk “food”. This gets me all fired up, especially after seeing Freelee’s video on childhood obesity the other day. VIdeos and articles and topics like this make me passionate.
Whipped Cream 1 1/3 c Raw Cashews soaked at least 2 hrs 1/2 c Water 3 T Liquid Sweetener or 2 Dates 1 t Vanilla Blend all ingredients in your Vitamix or Food Processor until smooth and fluffy. If using a food processor, start by blending all ingredients, minus 1/4 cup water. Stop frequently to scrape the bowl. When the mixture is quite smooth, drizzle in the last 1/4 cup water till fluffy.
Typically, people who exercise, start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. Exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change.
Do you know any tumblr users who are vegan and are also coeliacs (allergic to gluten)? Or vegan athletes? I'm a coeliac, a aspiring athlete and I really want to become a vegan but I'm worried about the nutrition side of it especially because I have had low iron in the past. Any advice?
if you eat gluten free and/or are an athlete, could you please offer some advice? I would, but I just don’t know very much about that kind of thing
I’m not coeliac but i try really hard to be gluten-free because i have digestion issues and gluten doesn’t work well for me (runs in the family too). Veganism is wonderful though, as long as you’re eating enough calories from fruits and vegetables, you’ll NEVER have to worry about being low in iron. Check out 40 Below Fruity on Youtube is a good place to start. Freelee the banana girl on youtube is also good. Or Kristina. They’re all gluten-free and vegan and athletic and thriving!
So today was my rest day and I ended up eating Mexican food, ice cream, and a donut. I know I shouldn't feel guilty because I've been eating pretty good for the past month and a half, but I do. Now I don't want to eat dinner for fear of adding more calories to what I've already ate. I feel like I ruined all my progress in one day. Any advice?
It’s impossible for one meal to ruin all your progress. If anything, NOT eating dinner will be the thing that harms you. My advice for little mess ups like this will always be the same.
1. Forgive yourself. It is JUST FOOD. You did not hurt anybody. You didn’t hurt yourself. You didn’t rob a bank. So why feel guilty! Tell yourself right now “It’s just food.” Food is not something to ever feel guilty over, no matter how unhealthy or how much.
2. The last thing you want to do is restrict your cals for the rest of the day. Continue on eating as you would have before. If anything the nutrients from the healthy food will give you a boost of energy and will make you feel better mentally and physically.
3. Drink water and move on
i really needed to read this tonight. thanks tumblr user foundstrength you’re very wise
