Re: Worlds First Vegan Elementatry School?

It's actually still going on shockingly enough....it's basically the same (what I like to call) holy trio debate - Calcium/Protein/Iron In a nutshell it comes down to them waiving them arms in the air screaming WILL SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN. Started with the whole "They need milk to...

Re: Enough protein???

Great reference guide here as well, has a lot of info as well as some higher sources of protein for the vegan diet. http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.php "Vegan athletes’ protein needs can range from 0.36 to 0.86 grams of protein per pound. Protein supplements are not needed to achieve even ...

Re: vegan pancake problem

I've used the 'Ener-G' egg replacer for quite some time and have had no problems with it but we usually don't put in in pancakes and use banana's as the binder instead. Made these a few weeks back, used the chocolate instead of the vanilla powder, a little heavy but made a great meal. http://myvega....

Re: Tofu controversy

Paneer is cheese/dairy based isn't it? That is a good idea for a substitute actually tofu instead of paneer in Indian food. I'll definitely try that and let you guys know how it is. Yup, Paneer is cheese curds. Pretty much made the same way Tofu is made but with real milk instead of soy. And yup, T...

Re: Tofu controversy

The only input I would add is try to keep it Organic. A LOT of Tofu on the market is GMO based and studies have shown it to have heightened amounts of estrogen (to help the cows grow and produce milk faster when pregnant) in it then it's Organic counterpart, just keep an eye on the label. My wife an...

Re: That 'Protein' word again....help with some diet stuff

Thanks C.O., Haven't considered creatine yet, I was doing the EC stack for a bit to drop some weight but decided I wanted to try to keep things as natural as I can and just focus on diet and training. Don't really have a trainer but a couple of my co-workers that I go with have been lifting/training...

That 'Protein' word again....help with some diet stuff

Okay, so I know if you are like me, you hate it when people ask "Where do you get your protein" and have to spit off a laundry list of food items to quell the nay-sayers that say we as vegan's don't get enough. But I'm going to ask for a little help here, I've done the research, made a pre...

Have been vegan for just over 3 years now after my wife and I decided to do a little ...
