i’ve said it before but NO decent vegan is on a crusade against native people eating meat or killing animals for clothing or whatever. i’ve literally never spoken to a vegan, in real life or online, who cares about that. what we care about is factory farming. please stop using native peoples as a gotcha against veganism it’s not a good look

(I kept trying to post this but it wouldn’t so we’ll try again)

This is an awesome vegan egg scramble/omelette and if you see it in the store (the brand is JUST) and you can afford to give it a try I implore to do so because it is so so so good (though unfortunately too expensive for me to buy every week) 1.6.19

The Planet-saving Diet!

We need to reduce our meet consumption by up to 90% in order to save the planet according to the experts. A reduction in the amount of red meat we consume will also have health benefits reducing the number of premature deaths.

To protect the well-being of future generations, there needs to be a drastic reduction in the consumption of meat, poultry and eggs, the EAT-Lancet Commission says.

With the world’s population expected to reach 10 billion by 2050, the report argues that current diets, with a growing emphasis on Western-style high-calorie foods high in saturated fats, are unsustainable.

The solution, based on three years of modelling studies, is a diet consisting of around 35% of calories obtained from whole grains and tubers, and protein mostly derived from plants.

The commission says red meat and sugar consumption would have to halve at least, while that of nuts, fruits, vegetables and legumes such as lentils and chickpeas must double. It insists that not only would people be healthier, but it would also reduce the damaging effects of climate change, soil erosion, deforestation and loss of biodiversity.

The commission’s findings, published in the Lancet, also call for restrictions on the advertising of unhealthy food, making healthy foods cheaper and halving food waste.

~ 4 Smoothie Recipes without Bananas! ~

Bananas are great and super healthy. Rich in many things we need and very good for our body. But also rather high in calories and a fear food for many.

I know zoodles are hugely popular because they’re like this ‘low calorie’ substitute to pasta noodles, but a) I don’t like diets (almost 100% of them fail!) and b) they just can’t replace noodles in my opinion!!! That being said, I’m a huge fan of veggies and how eating them makes me feel, so sometimes I add in spiralized zucchini noodles to my regular pasta dishes. Again, healthy eating to me is all about addition, not subtraction.

This is a yummy peanut noodle stir fry with spaghetti noodles, zoodles, veggies (broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, green onion, etc.) and a delicious peanut sauce.

The sauce is just: 1 minced garlic clove, 1 slice minced ginger root, 2 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce, 1 tsp maple syrup, 1 tsp sesame oil, & pinch chilli flakes.

How do you feel about veggie noodles?

Protein Sources For Weight Gain And Loss

Greetings and welcome back to another great topic and that is protein sources for weight loss and/or gain! I will start by saying there is a lot of controversy on this topic regarding which protein sources are best for who and what for. The reason for all the controversy is because there are a lot of variables involved when it comes down to protein sources, genetics and overall goals/objectives. I’m sure you have heard by now that one type of protein source is better than another and such. But to be quite honest, this question can only truly be answered by knowing how your body responds to certain protein sources and what it is (fitness) that you are trying to achieve. Examples would be are you looking to gain muscle, lose weight, lean out, etc. I have had many clients who have used one type of protein source and did exceptionally well and other clients not so well with the same protein source. The saying “You are what you eat” actually holds true. With that being said, I am going to go through some details on some protein sources and my experience with them. There are two main categories of protein sources and they are Animal and Plant based.

Animal based proteins

Animal protein is best known and ideal for gaining muscle. If you are a man or woman whom is trying to gain weight and put on some muscle, then animal protein sources are probably what you want to go with. The reason why animal proteins are good for muscle gain is because of the amino acids that reside in that protein source along with the insulin response (IGF-1) your body gives to digesting that type of protein source. Consuming animal proteins oppose to plant based proteins will give you more of an “anabolic” or “aesthetic” kind of look. The muscles will take on a more round and/or bulky kind of look (if that’s what you are going for). I am not saying that consuming animal proteins will give the above result every time but from my experience and observing bodybuilders diets and such, this tends to be the case. Either way, the main consistent result of consuming animal proteins is gaining muscle size not matter what it looks like.

Plant based proteins

Plant based protein is best known for losing weight and leaning out. If you are a man or woman whom is trying to lose weight, obtain more muscle definition and/or maintain weight, than plant based protein sources are probably what you want to go with. Plant based protein sources are also well known for muscle endurance. The reason why plant based proteins are good for losing weight, muscle definition and overall weight maintenance is because of the amino acids that reside in that protein source along with its effects on IGF-1, naturally. The effects of plant based proteins on IGF-1 is significantly less than animal protein sources therefore giving the body less of a “anabolic” kind of look; not as round and bulky (more hard and chiseled), more of a lean and toned kind of look. Again, I am not saying that consuming plant based proteins will give the above result every time but from my experience and observations, this tends to be the overall result. As mentioned with animal proteins above, the main consistent result of consuming plant based proteins are weight loss, muscle definition and weight maintenance and even muscle endurance.

It’s harder to gain muscle weight on plant based proteins

It’s not completely impossible but very difficult to gain weight (muscle) on plant based protein sources. That’s if of course if you are going for muscle mass and/or competing in a bodybuilding competition, etc. The only exception to this rule really is unless the person is on steroids (which are anabolic) and then it doesn’t matter too much what protein source it is, you are going to metabolize a lot better and gain muscle regardless. Overall, it’s just not in the cards for plant based protein sources for weight gain because that’s not how they typically respond to the human body. Not to mention, protein quantity in plant based protein sources are naturally a lot less which means you will have to eat more to get enough protein to gain muscle. In the end, if you are looking to gain weight in muscle, don’t go primarily with plant based protein sources. I am speaking from experience. I was vegan for a whole 2 years and everything I ate was organic raw whole food. I got fantastic results with weight loss and energy/endurance, but it was practically impossible for me to gain muscle mass. As a matter of fact, I had a hard time maintaining what I had. I was simply not eating enough “protein” to maintain my weight and plant based diets are usually lower in protein.

Don’t think one protein source is better/healthier than the other

This is also a huge misconception and belief out there and that is animal proteins are better than plant based proteins and vice versa. Completely untrue for they are two completely different types of protein sources. Comparing the two is like comparing apples and oranges. Two separate and completely different protein sources. The true key to health, wellness and well-being is a healthy combination of animal and plant based protein sources. The truth to this is that animal protein sources have an abundance of certain amino acids that plant based proteins sources don’t have and vice versa. It’s actually very healthy to have both types in your diet. If possible of course.

Another misleading worry that some people have (if they are not shopping organic) are the farming practices to both animal to plant based proteins. I’m going to be completely honest here, if you are worrying about the hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, etc in animal protein sources over plant based, I wouldn’t. Plant based protein sources are not that much better than the animal based protein sources when it comes to farming practices. There are just as much pesticides and GMO product in plant based protein sources. But here’s the good news. If you eat an equal amount of animal to plant based protein sources, the plant based protein sources do help to negate the bad effects that can come with animal protein sources. Plant based protein sources by nature tend to have higher levels of phytonutrients and antioxidants (depending on the source) that go along with them. This helps to keep the body detoxed and healthy as well as help push out any harmful substances that could possibly harm the body whether through diet and/or environment.

Disclaimer and my overall experience

I am not 100% sure if protein sources from animal vs. plant have been clinically proven to have the effects on the body as I have stated above, but it sure has been a big observation in my experience. Like I mentioned earlier, determining what protein source does what to whom is very difficult to prove because of the many variables involved. What I have seen, observed and experienced has been what is stated above. The best way to know for sure is to try it on yourself, trial and error.


j’assume bof ces jeux de mots plutôt nazes mais bon tant pis et puis c’etait pas fait pour  être drôle de toute façon. Je vais à Angoulême because j’ai été sélectionnée aux concours jeunes talents (surprenant car c’était débile mais peut-être que c’est ce qui a marché), je voulais poster les planches mais j’ai toujours pas les scans donc voila à la place des chats végétariens.
