  1. Chris i think the food stats on quinoa show it has vey little fat, barely worth mentioning, but the same packaging also says how high it is in omega oils..... not sure what the deal is there! - my guess is that there is a difference between fat and omega oils? To be honest, i enjoy fatty foods anyway, and do not try to avoid it at all, so long as its not saturated fat.
  2. Thanks for the great recipes riddick, I will definately make them. None of what i eat is anywhere near as fancy, i am a bit of a boring eater im afraid, using simple ingredients and meals etc. Trying to not be so unimaginative moving forward
  3. The quinoa fan club is growing Agreeing with above comments about protein, its not just the quantity thats good, itd the quality too. It has all the essential amino acids, which most plant peoteins do not. Plus the stuff I get is fair trade so it is helping the farmers a bit too.
  4. riddick, thanks for the meal idea, it sounds yummy! I will definately give it a try one day soon. Now all i have to do is dig out those baked beans, i know i put them somewhere around here....
  5. lol fallen horse these are my dinners and i dont eat fruit in the evening - only during day lobsterific, thnx for your stir fry tofu suggestion, its going on the list!
  6. why is it funny? It has all the essential amino acids, plus it has omega oils 3,6, & 9. I guess the way I wrote it implied the amino acids were omega 3, 6 & 9. Also perhaps you are reffering to the no fat comment when it contains oils? I meant it contains next to no fats, only 5 grams per 100 grams.
  7. I would like to buy a copy, can you get it here to the UK? Thnx x
  8. Hi all, I came on here looking for some meal ideas, but found nothing but desserts! You are a bunch of fatty cake lovers! (joke!) If anyone has suggestions for simple meals that are vegan plus wheat free (seriously intolerant now) So far I am eating: 1. Heinz Baked Beans (beans in tomato sauce - its an english thing) with mashed potato (using sunflower marjerine in the mash) 2. Mung bean burgers, chips, and salad (if anyone wants the bean burger recipe let me know - they rock!) 3. Rice, mixed lentils, & mixed veg stew, with Garlic Bread (made with wheat free bread - rice & tapioca flour) 4. Pasta dish (wheat free pasta) where I add all sorts of random things, depending on mood. Any suggestions would be awesome, just give me 1 meal idea of what you eat in a week !!!!
  9. - quinoa, quinoa, quinoa !!!!!! Cook up a huge batch, put it in a container in fridge and add it to meals, or snacks all week long. it is nice hot, cold, whatever. Super good source of all the amino acids, omega 3,6 & 9 and has no fat. I know its not a recipe as such, but its the best i can do!!
  10. I dont know how you cope with having a non vegan partner. For years I was ok with omni partners, but my current gf of 5 years went vege and then vegan along with me, after I explained my reasons she agreed with them. Infact our love of animals is one the strongest things in common we have, and I respect her greatly for her beliefs. I would now struggle to have any respect for a partner if she was non caring enough to give up meat. I am quite intolerant now though, in danger of becoming a vegan asshole, lol.
  11. The earths climate temperature has been changing drastically on its own for billions of years. A good example is ice ages. We all know about what they are, and that the last one was around 10,000 BC, but we still have not even the faintest idea what caused it, or any others for that matter. The same can easily be said for warming ages which are the natural hangover of ice ages. For all we know, the temperatures we are seeing now could be the natural temperatures of earth before the last ice age. Infact there is solid proof that our planet had endured much longer and hotter periods than those we are recording now. Also people bang on about methane from animals, but our animals production of methane is nothing compared to what the dinosaurs would have been producing, and they were around for 300 million years or whatever, and guess what, the atmosphere survived that. My opinion is that the global warming/carbon emissions theory is very weak, badly drawn from a limited understanding of planetry science, and is most likely an attempt for governments to levy another tax on society, which they are now very effectively doing.
  12. Well done Robert, you are a legend I hope it goes well for you. Quick question, what is your book specifically about? Veganism, bodybuilding, or is it a general overview?
  13. I think animals should have the right to equal rights with humans, on nearly, or every level. Good on Switzerland for being ahead of most of our countries on this.
  14. Thanks for the synopsis m8. On that basis I am going to buy the book off amazon and read it, then when im finished, offer to lend it to people who show an interest in my veganism. What strikes me as interesting is the science behind our dietry choice, because I like to be educated in that, aswell as the moralistic reasons behind our veganism. Thanks!
  15. lol at the gif lol at the attempt to change subject I recently read the first novel of the Star Wars; Old republic series, called Darth Bane. A great science fiction book, made even better if you are a Star Wars fan, which I unashamedly admit I am. Before Wisdom, what is the jist of the China Study?
