Re: Sites you use to find summer apt. rentals?

Another vote for airbnb. I just used it to find a short term rental for a week and it was great - lots of thing that weren't on Craigslist.

Re: Gaia's Cut

I was also 455 calories below my maintenance level of 1100 yesterday to offset the re-feed calories of 3000. Plan on doing somewhat the same or if I go closer to maintenance to get thru a good back workout, then i might let up alittle and get closer to 1100 today. I'm curious how you calculated you...

Re: Hi hi hi

Marcina I'm so glad you are back! I was just looking over the VBBF profiles on the main site the other day and wondered what happened to you.

I'm very sorry to hear about your struggles, but best of luck to you as you are moving toward being healthy!

Re: The science behind Vega's Recovery Accelerator

I've read 'THRIVE' and his footnotes are seriously lacking. Yes, there is a bibliography, but that doesn't tell me if what he's saying is in fact derived from any of those sources. :( I more or less like Thrive and I like Brazier, but I do agree with you on this point. Some of the claims in that bo...

Re: Anyone else here dislike the word "vegan"?

My parents always say vay-gun. No matter how many times I correct them. I figured I was fighting a losing battle and gave up.

Re: vegan breads/cereals/snacks

I don't buy bread often, but I like Ezekiel breads. My local Safeway carries it in the freezer aisle. I'm a bit surprised you think Lara bars taste like figs - all the flavors I have tried don't even contain figs (do you mean dates?). Have you tried Luna bars? They don't have figs or dates. I don't ...

Re: too much fiber! D:

Cut back on beans and incorporate more tofu/tempeh/etc for protein? I'm not saying give up beans completely, just cut back. Maybe that will help?

Re: Does anyone know how to make sushi rolls without rice?

Steamed cabbage works alright. It's not super filling since it's just vegetables, but it works for a 'sushi craving'

Re: Vegan For Life

I read that last year. I love it. I refer to it all of the time and when new vegans ask me for book recommendations I always tell them that they should really get it. Such a valuable resource.

I've never been to Vegas, but if I ever go I'd make a beeline for Ronald's doughnuts.

Re: Gluten free bread

Yeah, a lot of gluten free baking is an investment initially, as a mix of flours really works best. Bob's Red Mill makes a pre-mixed bag of gluten-free flours, I don't know how well it works in sandwich bread though.

Re: Gluten free bread

The Rudi's brand is vegan. I see it a lot but I haven't tried it. You can go here to see where to buy it in your area: http://www.rudisbakery.com/where-to-buy/ I've done a bit of gluten free baking for cookies and muffins, but not yeasted breads - sorry I'm not more help there. I found a few on the ...

Re: MaryStella's Triathlon training crossfit endurance

Wow Mary - I am so shocked/happy for you that you are able to train so soon after surgery! That's awesome!

Does the plate come out eventually or is it in there for good?

Best wishes for a speedy recovery and a kick ass racing season!

Re: HELP NEW VEGAN!

Not every vegan has eczema. What causes an eczema flare up in one person is not necessarily going to cause another person to have eczema. My understanding is that the link between eczema and stress is pretty clear. I'm not saying that's always what causes eczema, it certainly isn't the case for ever...
