  1. 1/2 banana 1/2 cup of oats 1/4 cup of almond milk 1 scoop of protein powder 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 tsp baking powder Blend it all up in a food processor and make as you usually would pancake batter (: It's awesome with blueberries and raw blue agave too (:
  2. Pre morning run: Banana or other fruit Post morning run: 1/2 scoop protein powder, 1 tbsp spirulina, 1/3 cup blueberries Lunch: Tofu scramble (with spinach, mushrooms and nutritional yeast) over quinoa, lentils or a sweet potato Snack: hummus with hemp seeds and raw veggies Pre weights: Oatbran with 1/2 scoop of protein powder Post weights: 1 scoop of protein powder Dinner: Same as lunch usually, but with steamed broccoli or brussels sprouts I use Plantfusion protein powder (: I really try not to count anymore, I just kind of feel it out (:
  3. Back when I first went vegetarian, I consumed faux meats all the time, and it never really upset my body, but I wasn't really active back then. For the past six or seven months, I've been staying away from them for the most part because I've heard really bad things about soy protein isolate, and how processed most faux meats were. I've been replacing them with whole soy foods like sprouted organic tofu and edamame. Are faux meats really that bad? Do many of you consume them as a primary source of protein or even several times a week? They're so convenient, it would certainly be easier than making tofu daily. By faux meats I'm mostly talking about the Gardein brand, which uses non-gmo soy beans and the ingredients list doesn't look too scary. Thanks!
  4. Thanks! I did have a question on carbs. I make sure that I'm getting around 1 gram of protein per my body weight, and I'm usually around the 123 to 130 grams per day range, but I'm constantly hearing different opinions on carbs, mostly from non-vegan bodybuilding sites who are recommending no more than 40% of my calories come from carbs. What's the vegan stance on this? Obviously by carbs I mean whole foods like lentils, beans, grains, fruit, ect... and not processed crap (:
  5. I once used veganism to restrict my calories, and now I'm using it to gain strength. I'm definately aiming for strong over skinny now. Here's me at 119 and 5'9
