  1. I hate a weak flavored hummus. Give me some with lots of garlic and some spice please. When I make chicpeas I usually reserve some to make a pile of hummus. Homemade hummus is the shiz.
  2. I love to hike and enjoy the nature around me. The only mountains near me are the Smoky Mountains which I call hills. I lived in Colorado for a short spell. Now those were mountains. I've only ever done two trails on two mountains and I don't remember the name of the one I climbed in California but I like mountain hiking. Its a very nice change from trail hiking around a lake or big hills.
  3. I understand the balancing act between yin and yang but what makes a person a yin or a yang, this is where my confusion is. Thanks.
  4. Oh I'm sure I'm eating more than enough. I love food. I will try slowing down on the lifting to see if this works. Would you suggest slowing down on amount of days working each body part but doing more sets on each body part when lifting?
  5. I work every muscle group three times a week. For example, I will work my legs every other day and incorporate a chest/back day on two of those days. And every other day I will work my arms. Abs get thrown in whenever. I rest one day a week and cardio is almost everyday and ranges from 30 mins to 1hr. I do 3x10 on everything. I just started BB back in May. I've seen growth and continue to see growth even though it is starting to slow down. I'm sure that i'm not doing something right somewhere. I am female and it seems that I find more information out there for men than women. Can I do the same BB work as men or is there something better out there for women? Any tips on how to get bigger? I know there are supplements out there but I really don't want to take any of them. Thanks.
  6. That was the most absurd video I have ever seen. Please, please let me not ever see it again.
  7. And how do you workout around your schedule? I used to work 3rd shift for years as a baker and just worked out in the morning. Currently I am not working and my schedule is open but I will be looking for work again soon. Just wondering how some of you who have families fit everything in.
  8. Last night I had a slice of vegan marble cake. So nutritious I know......
  9. I just realized this morning that I am eating excess carbohydrates by pairing up beans and bread. I didn't realize how many carbs were in a serving of beans. 20g. While tofu has about 2g of carbs and seitan is relatively small too in the carb category. Now I know why I'm not losing any weight. I'm not gaining either. So I need to kick the bread, use rice and beans as my carbs and tofu/seitan as my protein. I also need to get more veggies into my diet. I thought I was eating enough but I guess not. We'll see how this goes.
  10. I can tell a difference in most of the organic produce and beans that I eat. Especially in fruits and beans. Greens not as much. We eat a shit ton of beans and rice in my house. When I switched to organic, I could tell just from looking at the beans how much better they were. I buy organic as much as possible. If the budget is really tight then I buy what I feel to be most important as far as organic. Putting less crap into your system now will pay off later when you get older. There are too many people in my family taking 10+ perscription pills everyday for various reasons and I refuse to ever be that way.
  11. I despise Monsanto. They are out to take all the seeds. Genetically modify them so you can only ever use their seed. Some foods that they have already modified you can't save the seed and replant because the seeds are steril. They are responsible for most of the pesticides on our foods. They have their hands so deep in government its horrific. They make deals with other countries with their seeds which leave the farmers sick or poor. Farmers can't grow the seeds that they used to because of these deals that their governments have made. Many of these seeds that the farmers used to grow are seeds that have been around for millenia. Mostly different types of wheat seeds. Half the United States government has worked for them or goes to work for them. They are in bed with Bayer, Round Up and Dupont. I'm sure there are more but I can't remember at the mo'. Buy organic foods and plant organic seeds, PLEASE. Don't buy foods that are genetically modified if you can help it. There are so many documentaries on Monsanto. Go out and rent them. Be educated against this horrible company.
  12. I always soak for 10 - 12 hours sometimes longer if I don't get to them sooner. Rinse the beans after draining. Then cook in fresh water, uncovered for 40 mins. I do this with all beans no matter what kind.
  13. What's the point in spending the money on organic, gluten-free cake if it's not vegan and you are a vegan? Can't have your own wedding cake. If you are going to do that you might as well have had a normal wedding cake. geez. dummass
