  1. My mum has been making tofurkey every year since she discovered it, so that and more kale than you can shake a stick at.
  2. I only do it for six weeks starting in may, so I'm looking good for volleyball season. This will be my first time trying it vegan style. I am STOKED!!!!!!! and for no reason at all, a little dog in a jacket http://smalldogarific.wordpress.com/files/2007/01/10781553_320x240.jpg

  5. Walnut oil can withstand high temperatures too.
  6. Is a ketogenic diet possible with vegan only products? I'll make d if it's not but if it is please tell
  7. Walnut meal and almond meal are purchasable if your concerned about your blenders health, and actually cheaper than purchasing the nuts and blending them. I like to add my almond meal to homemade hummus. Never roast your nuts (except for cashews) though. The heat transforms them into fats that have been linked to cancer and high levels of LDL cholesterol. Add calcium supplements to this equation and you're not doing your arteries any favours. Walnuts and Almonds and Macademia are the best nuts and ground flax seeds, for their levels of omega fats and high levels of monounsaturated fats(almonds and mac).
  8. Dal baby..Dal tarka is amazing and can be made vegan. also after boiling, strain and let cool add 1 tbsp of olive oil 2 tbsp of red wine vinegar 1 clove of garlic 1 tbsp of chili powder 1 tbsp of cumin fresh chopped cilantro your cooked cooled lentils (roughly two cups) toss in the bowl 6 servings of awesome NOMS! I use this for soy beans tooo...mmmmmmmmm
  9. I was under the impression that their most popular items were all man made fibres and totally vegan, and even fair trade and an ethical company. I have a substantial amount of gear from that company for comfort, reliability, endurance and well...they're pretty and I'm not exactly at my most stunning when I'm sweating like a hog and breathing like I'm in a Lamaze class. The pants are butt magic! But I can't find out for sure if they are and googling around I found this article: http://thetyee.ca/News/2005/02/17/LuluCritics/ If the products are going to be made in China, then they should reflect that in pricing or continue to be made in non communist setting so the workers receive fair wages, or some wages at all. Since the price won't likely go down, they've been getting away with 100 dollar work out pants this long I don't see that changing. What are your thoughts? Any information to share? I'm never sure with clothes and medication.
  10. Cliff bars are full of sugar. This a no bake recipe for a protein bar (ripped from Oxygen): 2 cups quick oats 1/2 cup natural peanut butter 4 scoops protein powder (vanilla,chocolate or cookies and cream work best) [i have natural flavoured soy that works fine too, I just add cinnamon] 1 tbsp ground flax seed 1/2 cup water Knead all ingredients in a large bowl Line a square baking baking pan covered in kosher waxed paper (all parrafin, no tallow..look for the star-k brand). Spread dough using a spatula, you may add a thin layer of peanut butter but that will add more calories. Freeze for 30 min and cut into 8 bars. Calories and protien will depend on your powder. This a great mass building bar, but for mass I still think plain rice cakes and powder work best. Pre-gym?
  11. They're phasing out the middles. So now (unless you plan to juice) you're stuck with figure (gymnastics) and bikini, which is very light weight. It's really changed. Check the IFBB website and the Arnolds website, they'll tell you what you need
  12. Their tea tastes horrible so I never bought it, now I never will. Thanks for the heads up
  13. In toronto, you can buy at loblaws, whole foods, SND carries a few options, Popeye's carries a few options, Kensington Market has some health stores that carry it, and on Bloor there's a ton of health food stores that carry soy protiens, and even isolates.
  14. Introduce yourself next time you see me . . . (Trainers, Bathurst/Bloor, right?) That's the one! Hey guys, I go there too!!!
  15. I'm in Toronto, On. I want to switch my kids onto a vegan diet or vegetarian soon, and I'm having trouble finding a place that provides a vegan diet for both cats and dogs. Any suggestions? I would prefer not making it myself if possible.
  16. Baby gates in dangerous areas!!! In addition to the great advice given here.
  17. Natural Peanut Butter Hummus Quinoa Lentils ( I make a great curry salad) Silk Vanilla Light Edamame Tofu, plain..I LOVE IT Almonds Royal Gala apples..num num Bavarian Veggie Dogs with german saurkraut (no added sugar) and polish hot mustard (no egg) Ezekial Bread 4:9 Sesame flavour Almond Milk Unsweetened Original Tahini Sweets From the Earth cheats like carrot cake or caramal pecan bar...
  18. Mushrooms are the only vegan source of vitamin D aside from UV exposure. I eat a lot of these now anyway, and I'll be phasing out all my animal sourced vitamins as I use them up. Looks like tanning maybe once a week and even MORE mushrooms will be key.
  19. I use ProActiv and it works if used as directed and it's not tested on animals.
  20. Hi I'm not vegan yet(I'm not even vegetarian), mostly because I bought into all the misconceptions about a vegan and vegetarianism is counterproductive to training with weights, and won't provide enough calories for stamina, won't have enough nutrients for flexibility and womens health. When I was told this I was a noobie at the gym and to clean eating, and a previously unsuccessful vegetarian because I was young and resources and products were not as available as they are now. During the time I spent learning how to work out right and eat clean, I always loved animals so my lifestyle and my ethics were always in conflict. I have finally decided after 4 years of learning, learning, learning how to work out and eat right; it's time to love animals as much as I can. I am cold tofurkey giving up animal flesh and animal by products because I refuse to ignore the suffering I am causing because it's easier to eat what "they" say. I am educated enough in nutrition that I know my health will improve on this diet as well as my karma muscle(which has been horribly flabby ). I am using up items I already bought (which is minimal since I never at pork, veal, lamb, beef, lobster, wild caught fish, net caught fish, and avoided as much as possible aside from milk and milk products and poultry and poultry products). I am 110% dedicated to this. I might slip up here and there, but I'm learning. Be gentle.
