That sounds really good, chocolate and pb together are the best match! Does it have a lot of sugar?

Re: Which type of protein powder do you use?

So, I am confused (doesn't take much). I have been searching to boards trying to learn more about BCAAs and other supplements and just have myself completely confused. Say I want to order protein powder off the True Protein website, what exactly should I include? What percentage of pea, hemp, and ri...

Re: Anyone getting good results with really low fat vegan di

You can, but I personally do better with much higher levels of fat, it helps keep me full. If I eat too high carbs I get ravenous.

Re: Creatine ?

Are you sure you weren't looking at creatinine, not creatine? Creatinine is a test of kidney function and is produced when the kidneys break down creatine, I believe, but I am not sure if that value tells your creatine levels.

It is helping me get back in shape too. An organization I am involved with is summiting Mt. Hood in June, and I would love to do it bu...

Re: which water to drink?

So how do water distillers work? Do they boil the water and trap the steam and then cool it to make pure water? I live in an area with a good quality well but have a friend that lives in a city and is concerned that her Pur faucet filter isn't enough for things like the recently discovered hexavalen...

Re: Special Deal on Organic Hemp Protein in Bulk

(Nutiva is not as good, general consensus amongst those in the hemp industry) and how they process. Anyone know if this is just for the hemp protein or if this is for Nutiva's hemp hearts too? I found a great deal for a 5 lb bag of Nutiva hemp seed on Amazon, but don't want to buy it if it is not g...

Re: Vega & Similar Supplements: More Affordable Alternative

NOW Tru-Food Vegan is an alternative, but I don't know if it is cheaper or not. Before you buy the Vega make sure to try a sample pack first, because some people don't like the taste, at least mixed with just plain water. I think a lot of people only do a half serving a day too instead of a whole on...

Re: Keto

Keto diets done in the short-term can definitely work well for some people. I know that the vegan community has a big grudge against the "eat tons of meat and no carbs" -style keto diet stuff, but done vegan and for short periods of time, it's not likely to be any worry of anything unheal...

Re: Vegetarian nutrition computer program in the works

This is interesting stuff. I have never heard that your body cannabolizes muscle if you eat an incomplete protein, I always thought you body just stored the extra until complementing proteins were eaten. That is why most vegans don't worry about protein complemting anymore as long as they eat a vari...

Re: Vegetarian nutrition computer program in the works

Did you start eating more too? It seems that would help you put on weight more than just combining proteins.

Thanks everyone, I am excited to find this place. John, I am from just south of Youngstown so I am not too far from Cleveland. Have you been to the Flaming Ice Cube? It is a new vegan resturaunt in downtown Cleveland. The original one is in Boardman and I am obsessed with their buffalo panini and pe...
