Healthy vegan wilderness food

I recently got a job that requires me to spent extensive time in the wilderness. I just finished my first trip and my diet, and therefore digestive system, were not optimal. I basically ate granola for breakfast, rice cakes with almond butter and jelly for lunch, and a can of black beans or some pas...

Re: Blue-Green Algae & Spirulina

Wow, that is scarry! I have heard that spirulina and chollera have the potential to be contaminated with neurotoxic blue green algae and Vega and a couple other products that have it in assured me that theirs are grown in special ponds that are free of contamination from other algaes which grow due ...

Re: Stretch marks

I use coconut oil as sunscreen (and as a natural skin lotion), but only after I already have a bit of a base tan. It's supposed to have an SPF of about 4, BUT it needs to be rubbed in otherwise, yes, the oil will reflect the sun and cause you to burn rather than protecting you. I used it all summer...

Re: I am so sick of soy.

Try Sunwarrior (vanilla or chocolate flavoured) I second the Sun Warrior. That stuff is good! I make an amazing relatively low carb smoothie with 1/2 a bananna, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 2 scoops of Sun Warrior chocolate (32 grams protein), a serving of almonds, 5 large ice cubes, and a little bit...

Re: Stretch marks

Congrats on the weight loss! Sun tanning (under the real sun) will help to fade them, try and sun tan with nothing on your skin, no lotion or cream but just bare skin for as long as you can before you start to burn. If you plan on staying out in the sun longer apply coconut oil (natural sun protect...

Re: How much would it cost monthly to be vegan?

Another super cheap way to get veggies is to join a community supported agriculture program (CSA). You can find local ones at localharvest.org.

Re: Protein and Health

I have heard that plant based protein does not leach calcium from the bones like animal protein does. Don't go too low.

Re: How much would it cost monthly to be vegan?

As long as you aren't eating a ton of fake meats it won't be that expensive. Dried beans, grains, nuts, and seeds out of the bulk bins are really cheap.

Re: Anybody here outdoorsy?

It sometimes baffles me how dense people can be. And these are the ones that at least go out and try to have a wilderness experience. Imagine the ones who never even go out! :roll:

Re: Tastiest Protein Shake Recipes!

1-2 scoops Chocolate SunWarrior
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 bananna
5 ice cubes
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
about a half cup almond milk

It is so good, tastes just like a milkshake. If the bananna is frozen it is more an ice cream texture.

Re: HUMAPRO???

I have never heard of it. Vega and Sunwarrior are good vegan proteins. Sunwarrior tastes good just mixed in water or almond milk.

Re: Anybody here outdoorsy?

It's done, baby! About 200 miles in three months, the entire Forest Park system: every trail, every road, every firelane, even user trails that aren't on the map. I made a bunch of new friends out there and dropped 15 pounds. My hiking shoes look like hell--Ha, ha! Pics and stories about every hike...
