  1. I just dehydrated sprouted buckwheat and it is very dry - bone dry. I was wondering if it is possible to dehydrate food for too long? Also, is it really hard on the degestive system to eat foods such as my super dry sprouted buckwheat? Thanks
  2. One thing to add as well, I am doing this to get rid of toxins in my body. I am hoping this will be an effective way of doing so. What do you guys think? Would this be a good way to get rid of some toxins in my system?
  3. I am thinking of doing a Cleanse with Vega whole food health optimizer starting on new years as part of my new years resolution, and i was wondering if it would be safe for me to do so. I was planning to do it for 3-5 days. this is what my diet would look like... Morning: Lemon juice hour or 2 later -meal 1: 1/2 scoop of Vega, blended with bananas, or apples, or berries, 2 cups of water ===== blend all together 3hours later -meal 2: 1/2 scoop of Vega, blended with bananas, or apples, or berries, 2 cups of water ===== blend all together 3hours later -meal 3: lots of spinach with dates, banana, apples, or berries, 2 cups of water ===== blend all together and if I feel like it is necessary... 3hours later -meal 4: 1/2 scoop of Vega, blended with bananas, or apples, or berries, 2 cups of water===== blend all together Exercise will consist of stretching, maybe some yoga, and for sure- lots of walking What do you guys think? is it safe? is it not safe? I have been looking for a cheap and safe and easy way to do a cleanse for a long time now. I want to give my digestion system a break after eating every 2 hours for the past 2 months so that I could reach the weight of 150lb from 120lb through weight lifting (which I have successfully completed) thanks for your time ~Danny
  4. 1. 1 cup of orange juice, 1 apple, 1 tbsp molases, 2 medjule dates (Train) 2. Protein shake (24grams of protein ((Sprouted Brown Rice Protein)), 1 banana, 2 medjule dates, 1tsp maca) 3. 3/4 cup of dry steel cut oats (When I cook them, They expand to more than 3/4 cups. so maybe like 2 1/2 cup of cooked steel cut oats?), 2tbsp flax seed, 1 apple. 4. Green smothie (Kale, Collard Chard, and Carrots, 1tsp spirlina, 2 dates, 1 banana, 24grams of protein (Sprouted brown Rice Protein), 5. 1 cup of Lentil Dahl, 1/2cup of wheat berries 6. Cold Slaw, 4tbsp Hemp Seed 7. 1 cup adzukie beans 8. 1tbsp flax before bed.
  5. I see. One thing I also have been knoticeing, aside from the farting, is that I have a soar throat constantly and sometimes I get a little headache. I think the stress of eating decently size portions every 2-3 hours is really stressing my body. Has anyone else had soar throats and headaches from eating a lot of food like me? Here is an example of what I ate one day... 1. 1 cup orange juice, with 1 tbsp molasses, 2 dates and a apple (Train for a hour) 2. 24g of protein from sprouted rise protein, 1 banana, 2 dates, 1tsp of maca 3. 1 1/2 cup of buckwheat, 1 banana, 2tbsp of hemp protein 4. Green smoothie (Kale, Charde, carrot), 1tsp spirlina, 16grams of protein from sprouted brown rice protein, 1 banana, 2 dates 5. 1cup of Dahl Lentils, 1/2 cup of wheat berries 6. 2 cups of col slaw (shredded cabage, carrots, with tahni dressing), 4 tbsp of hemp seeds 7. 1 cup of adzukie beans 8. 1tbsp of flax, sunflower, and walnuts. (before half an hour of bed) in order to do this i ate every 2 hours... And...it really hurt the back of my throat i think. maybe it is because i kept swallowing food every 2-3 hours? any ways... thats that anyone else gassy? and have have soar throat and headache?
  6. Ah, I see. Did you have the same problems too when you started eating a lot?
  7. So, I change my diet in such a way so I can have more protein in my diet. In stead of eating 5-6 meals a day I am eating 6-8m meals a day and have been using my Sprouted Brown rice potein at least 2-3 times a day. but now I am farting like crazy and it is rather embarasing. Does the high protein diet cause me to fart so much? will it go away? If not, what can I do to fix the problem? Help me...please and thank you ~Danny

  9. I've been doing research lately on Iron. I am slighty anemic and want to find ways to imrpoove my iron levles. Also. I do not think my calcuim levels are exactly the best as well... SO I have some questions after the tid bit of info I posted Iron works best with Vitamine C. Iron inhibitors: Avoid con sumng phtate-rich food and Calcium-rich food Avoid consuming calcium and iron rich foods in the same meal Avoid consuming Zink with iron rich foods phytate rich foods are nuts/seeds and grains... Calcium rich food are in nuts/seeds, beans, grains, veggies, fruits ect. Zinc rich foods are found in protein rich foods So...my questions are... 1.how can iron be absorbed when phtate rich foods, and calcium rich foods are present when they have a good source of iron as well? 2. How can I balance out my iron Intakes and my Calcium intakes at the same time when iron and calcium are usually found in the same types of food. (example: mollases has 20% iron and 10% calcium) ? They can't be taken together. 3. One thing about being a vegan is that I am usually worried about my Calicum and Iron intake. Is there any one out there who can sort of work out a iron and calcium nutrition plan with whole foods? Thanks
  10. Ok...thanks. One more question though, what is wrong with just running normally for cardio with out the intervals?
  11. I have been starting to cook beans for longer now...But am still unsure when they are done or not. I follow these guidelines from this one website that was posted on this forum (thanks to whoever did that by the way) They say if you can squish it between the roof of your mouth and your tong, then it is good. OR if you can squish it with a fork. But....I still can never tell. Sometimes when I eat my beans, they are mushy, and sometimes they are not mushy, but are still edible... Bah...this shall always be a mystery to me....
  12. Here is another question I had on my mind for a while apparently, It is important for post work out shakes to consist of just simple, easy digestible protein and carbs. The protein and carb ratio should be 1 protein for every 3-4 carbs. And since I consume 16 grams of protein, I should have 48- 64 grams of carbs. My first question is...is this right? My second question is... I have protein shakes, not only when I am working out, but any other time of the day too. Do I still have to follow the 1 gram of protein to 3-4 gram of carb rule? My third question is... How do you make your protein shake? I don't use white sugar, or Gatorade, or stuff like that. I use whole foods for carbs such as banana, dates, and agave. so... 1 medium banana = 27 grams of carbs 1 scoop of Sprouted brown rice protein (16 grams of protein) 2 dates = 36 grams of carbs 1-2 cups of water 16 grams of protein 63 grams of carbs Are my statements true? & how do you make yours?
  13. I weight lift on mon, wed, frid and run on tue, thur, sat, sun I rest Mon: 45min - 1 hr chest, biceps, triceps Tue: 30 min running wed:45 min - 1hr Legs Thur: 30 min running Fri: 45min - 1hr Back, shoulders Sat: 30 min running + lower back and ab exercises Sun: rest Do you think this is over training the muscles? My goal is to build muscle, but get good cardio at the same time.
  14. I buy dry organic beans, I put them in a bowl and fill it with water over night (8-10 hrs) I drain the beans, rinse them, then I put them in a pot, and boil them I Let it simmer for a 20min- half hour to 1 hour (depends on beans) Then when they are soft (soft enough to chew) I drain the beans, rinse them, then put them in a container and put them in the fridge thats how I do it. My beans literally take 20min -1 hour to cook. and it is soft enough to eat. I don't know if releases the gasses or toxins from the beans this way. And I am afraid to overcook them because I herd if you do, then you loose most of the proteins or nutrients from the beans.
  15. I always soak my beans overnight for 8 hours or so
  16. When Cooking beans I soak mines over night, drain, and then cook in a pot filled with water...my question is When cooking beans in a pot, do I cover the pot as it is cooking? or do I leave it uncovered? I herd that covering the pot does not release the beans gasses, is this true? also, how long should I be cooking beans for? I usually cook them till soft, about 20-30 min i always had these questions on my mind, and now I am asking. Anyone know?
  17. Because, I have a hard time fitting 6 meals in a day, Sometimes, my last meal is also the time when I have to go to sleep. So I eat, then I sleep. Is this bad for my Health? What happens to the food while I am sleeping? Will I still get nutrients absorb and proteins absorb to repair my muscles from weight lifting? Thanks
  18. Hey, I herd that Dulse, spirlina, and Miso, and anything that is seaweed related have traces of B12, what do you guys think? is it good enough?
  19. Wouldn't nutritional yeast work for B12? by the by, I also agree with upping your calorie intake. you can try taking some Vega. It is a whole food supplement. I don't like taking supplements either, but I am find with taking Vega. I do not know how you feel about that though.
