  1. I do bananas all the time, and I have never heard of figs...I must try it on the next super warm day we have!
  2. We have a little gym in the basement of our apartment building, sometimes I will use that. We used to go to LA Fitness, but hated it, and now we go to a local place. I always like the local places the most...its 100 times nicer and we got an awesome deal.
  3. I just ate a gigantic bowl of soy (tofu scramble = yum), so I don't avoid it. I do try to practice moderation however, for instance, since I know I eat a fair amount of soy, I buy rice/gemma protein powder. My cats love soy too. The one loves Earth Balance, and soymilk, the other loves those plus Soyatoo (the soy whipped cream), and he had some of my tofu this morning. He's a funny little guy, he eats vegetables too. But they have soy in moderation also.
  4. Good luck to you. I recently quit a job with no job in sight, but was very lucky to get a new one quickly. It is definitely a rough time for job seekers, especially if you are looking for like-minded coworkers. But if you are determined and this isn't working for you (I personally couldn't imagine working in a place like that myself), I'm sure you'll find something that will, or is at least a step in the right direction
  5. Personally, on the veg burger question, it depends on the brand. I have a few brands that I microwave. But if your friend says the kind at your store is gross, I wouldn't get them. Although they really don't take much time at all to "cook".
  6. I need to try another black bean brownie recipe, more like this. I tried one awhile ago, and they're still in my freezer. Wasn't a big fan, but that's because they had bananas in them and they were more banana-y than chocolate-y.
  7. Ooooh...probably not what you're looking for, but there is a vegan cupcake shop in that area. That's the only place I've been so I don't have suggestions, but there are a lot of veg places in the area!
  8. I was thinking of making this for breakfast this morning, but I had a question. 3 apples? Like, 3 whole apples, chopped up? That's a lot of apple!!
  9. I am not an expert. Just coming at you as another woman. It sounds like you've been working out for awhile, at a fairly intense level, and have been doing fine with your macronutrients. If you aren't looking to bulk up, just want a little bit of definition, I wouldn't change anything. If you find yourself hungry all the time, or tired, then maybe add in some more calories, and then, try to do it in the form of protein. But in the past, when I've followed a specific diet guideline, moving away from something that has been working for me just fine, I end up much unhappier, and usually heavier too. Good luck
  10. I think its great that you've done this. Any way to get the word out that vegans can be strong and healthy is a step in the right direction as far as I am concerned!
  11. Ummm....parsnips? Who knows, they could be next!
  12. I like the leg extension machine. Its actually the leg curl machine that hurts my knees, although probably not in the same way. I also use it as a finisher to my workout sometimes.
  13. That's awesome! Good looking dog I'm sure you're both really happy!
