Fasten your seat belts and contain your excitement people, you're in for a wild ride with this hot topic!

 

I'm hoping this food journal will help to give people an idea of what a vegan athlete eats, and will also help to make me more accountable in a daily basis. That being said, I reserve the right to lie and withhold information! OK, I won't really lie, I might just occasionally not mention if I go overboard with the crackerjack or something.

I say quadrouple the maca...it makes for good cross training.

 

omg but the cost....

 

Here's the breakdown for today, not including maca (or a multi vitamin), as I have yet to find that available in a way that I can input into fit day. I think I could stand to eat a bit more, given I did an 18k run earlier. Maybe I'll make some brownies for dessert! I don't need to worry about eating anything of nutritional substance, since I've already exceeded every single RDA (on less than 1800 calories I might add). This is a pretty typical day. Oh I just realized I forgot to include pineapple, but there's no way I'm reformatting all of those numbers again!

I normally get everything I need on about 1,800 calories too, it's really cool when you do that.

 

Yeah, that's why I'm pretty generous with myself when it comes to things like dessert and snacking; I am getting what I need by eating nutrient dense staples. I love it!

 

Of course, given all the running I should probably be eating a bit more than I do, but I figure as long as I'm satiated and feeling good, why bother? I mean, I don't think it'd be healthy to add 500 calories of brownies or cinnamon buns every day, and I certainly can't imagine choking down that much additional broccoli or raw fruit.

 

I also like how no matter what I eat, I almost always come in at roughly the same breakdown of carbs/fat/protein, without even trying. My body knows what it needs, I guess. It seems to be working for me!

Whats a serving of pineapple to you? For me it would be getting my corer and eating the whole pineapple at once.

 

For me it's about 1/4 of a pineapple. What you just described is more like four servings. Maybe more.

 

I want a corer. I need to find where to buy one. I've started buying them cored lately because I got so tired of having to core and clean them every few days.

Thanks. I'll have to see if they ship to Canada.

 

just type in "pineapple corer" on your search engine and see what you get. That was the first one I got. I purchased my stainless steel one at Williams Sonoma.

 

One way or another I'm gonna get me one!

I thought rice krispie bars had gelatin in them, at least they used to.

 

These are definitely vegan, labeled "vegan rice krispie squares" and purchased from the health food store. The binding is essentially corn syrup and peanut butter.

I made and ate some brownies tonight. They were delicious! It's the first vegan brownie recipe I've made that didn't suck. They were moist and chewy and yummy.

 

Could you share the recipe? My girlfriend and I recently started venturing into the world of baking. Yesterday was peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip cookies. We'd love a good brownie recipe.

Absolutely!

 

I do want to note that I have tried at least half a dozen brownie recipes, and this is definitely the best.

 

Easy Delicious Brownies

 

 

Mix 1/3 c. flour (I used spelt) with 1 c. water.

Cook until thick & cool completely. I use a small saucepan and a fork and just whisk it constantly on medium heat. Put the pot in the fridge while you mix the other ingredients.

 

Beat 2 c. sugar, 1/2 t. salt & 1 t. vanilla into the cooled flour mixture.

 

(Note: don't make the cocoa mix until ready to use it! it gums up and makes lumpy brownies)

 

Melt 1/2 c. margarine. Add 3/4 c. cocoa & stir until smooth. (Don't bother cooling it!) add to the sugar mixture.

 

Mix together 1 1/2 c. flour & 2 t. baking powder & add to above ingredients.

 

Bake in a 10" square pan (or larger, don't try to use anything smaller) at 350 deg F. for 35 min or until an inserted knife comes out clean. This recipe makes fudgier brownies.

 

Recipe comes from "The Farm vegetarian Cookbook" revised edition, Ed. Louis Hagler, 1978
