Ouch! For rotator cuff, L-flyes are good. One version: take a resistance band (you can find them at Walmart) and hold it in both hands, arms at sides and arms bent at a 90-degree angle. Make sure band is taut. Keep elbows at sides and rotate your hands back. You should feel the work in the rotator c...

I didn't read through the longer post, so I may be being redundant, but here are some good body weight exercises: push-ups (works chest, front shoulder and triceps, and you can increase the load by going from one version to another (on the knees, on one knee, on one knee on a balance disc, on toes, ...

Kashi = Colon Blow :lol: I'm still ticked off at the Kashi company from the time they used to label their cereals as "contains all organic ingredients" but no "organically grown" ingredients, nor any organic certification, were mentioned. I assumed they meant there were no rocks in their cereal! (Th...

Alot of what he says actually makes sense though. Sepcifically the parts about people not eating enough healthy, fresh foods, and the cause of most health issues being high intake of chemicals and processed foods. I agree. Which makes his anti-veggie stance easier to pass on. If you put some sensib...

in rob's photo it looks like he has a really small left hand, but that's just perspective LOL! Maybe a vestigial limb? Looks kind of like the appendages on the aliens in the new "War of the Worlds" movie. Definitely needs to be changed, because some non-vegan cruising this site will attribute it to...

I use Pure Advantage Vegan Complete, which is a pea and rice combo. Guess I'm still a bit superstitious about protein complimentarity!

I like Vegan Joint Supreme as well. I open up two capsules and put the insides in my morning smoothie. I also like Deva's "Vegan Glucosamine MSM and CMO" but not as muc because it's in tablet form (I just ran out of VJS, so I'll be using up my Deva stuff). I get that one either from http://www.vegan...

To be honest, Vega is kind of hit and miss with a lot of people. Some love it, and some don't love it. Only a few I've heard say, "It's ok" like that had no opinion. I prefer the Vega Bars, I eat them all the time. The powder was definitely a miss for me. I thought it tasted like dirt (that some st...

Paul Chek on vegetarianism?

Anyone a fan of Paul Chek? I used to be! At least I respected his work in functional fitness, but this changed my mind: http://paulchek.com/Vegetarianism1.htm I find it very disturbing that he seems to be on a mission to convert vegans/vegetarians, with no regard to their ethical concerns (aside fro...

I used to do the holiday "find vegan equivalents for traditional foods' thing) and I particulary liked making "un-stuffed" stuffing with apples and sunflower seeds added and lots of sage for seasoning. Love that crusty top it gets when you bake it in the oven. This year, I'm not doing anything speci...

Since I just registered and posted to another thread (had to put in my two cents about mock chicken salad!), I thought it would be polite to introduce myself. I'm Kathryn (as you can see, I don't have much imagination--or memory--when it comes to user names). I became a vegetarian ( cold turkey, or ...

If you can't find TVP (or prefer a whole food rather than a processed food), try substituting tempeh (most has to be steamed for 20 minutes before using, but some don't). I've made variations of "chicken or the egg" (tastes like a bit of each to me, but I haven't had chicken for almost 30 years, or ...
