  1. Hi there! I just Googled "vegan pancakes" and a whole lot of recipes showed up. You should check it out.
  2. I generally hate blonde jokes, but I do like this one! A lawyer and a blonde are sitting next to each other on a long flight from LA to NY. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is really easy and a lot of fun. He explains: "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5, and vice-versa." Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now somewhat agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500," figuring that since she is a blonde that he will easily win the match. This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring that there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches in to her purse, pulls out a five dollar bill and hands it to the lawyer. Now, it's the blonde's turn. She asks the lawyer: "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?" The lawyer looks at her with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references. He taps into the Air phone with his modem and searches the Net and the Library of Congress. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his coworkers and friends he knows. After over an hour, he wakes the blonde and hands her $500. The blonde politely takes the $500 and turns away to get back to sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, so what IS the answer!?" Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep!
  3. That's really funny! Is it, by chance, the recipe from Happy Herbivore? I just recently got her books, saw that recipe, and really wanted to try it. Haven't gotten a chance yet.
  4. Congratulations, Portia, on feeling so great, powerful, and inspired! Great work!
  5. Welcome to the forum, Adam! Looks like you have lots of great information to share here as well! And I also like the blog posts you've made on your veggiethreads website! Welcome aboard!
  6. Yes, yes, yes, LET'S! I'll keep swinging by your journal and checking on you. What are your plans, or what does your timeframe look like to get back on track?
  7. Welcome to the forum, Colin! It's been said before, but I'll say it again, it sounds like you'll be able to bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the community. Welcome to the group! I look forward to reading your posts.
  8. Hi Amelia! Thanks for sharing that awfully cute picture of you and Charlotte! I don't think I've ever seen an all black rabbit before! 200wpm??? I know court recording is different than regular typing, but still - you've gotta be pretty darn fast on a keyboard, eh? How are things going for you this week? When is your black belt test? What kind of workouts are you doing to train for it? Hope you'll consider keeping a training journal here on the forum so we can all keep up with your workouts and progress! Welcome aboard! All the best! Karen
  9. Welcome aboard, Mystic Merman! I like your name! Great to have you here. I'm learning that being as healthy and fit as we can be as veg*ns is sometimes the best form of animal rights outreach we can do! Keep up the great work, and we'll see you around the forum!
  10. PAT! So great to have you here! The world needs more men like you! Haha! Seriously, though! "Forks Over Knives" changed sooooooo many people's lives and minds about food/nutrition/health/disease. It's up to us to keep spreading the word, 'cause it sure isn't gonna come from the industries or the government. Keep up the great work, and congratulations on all your achievements! Welcome, welcome, welcome!
  11. Haha, that IS pretty funny! Welcome to the forum, Electric Rider! "Forks Over Knives" really is an awesome documentary, and it has changed soooo many people's lives, as well as minds with regard to how they look at food, nutrition, and health/disease. Personally, I have a crush on Dr. Esselstyn. Haha! Anyhow, welcome aboard. I hope you find the answers you are searching for.
  12. Hey there, straud13! Doesn't look like you've posted on the forum since your initial post, but I hope you'll give us an update and let us know how it has gone since Vegan Week 2 started! I like what Dylan said above, about the fact that most of the biggest animals on our planet are vegan. They obviously don't languish away from a protein deficiency. But, also, just take a look around this website (both the forum and the main site). Lots of super pumped/ripped vegans! It's definitely possible! Hope things are going well for you!
  13. Hahaha! That's hysterical! What in the world would cause him to buy vital wheat gluten?
  14. Well, since I just moved to SoCal this past week, maybe I will have to check out the Big Sur sometime (for the 5K or 9miler, not the marathon!) You sound like such an awesome and fun dad! Bet your daughter loves pool/play time with her papa!
  15. Mythic, what does that mean that you're "a fur"/"furry"?
  16. I was just wondering how obnoxious it feels to run while carrying all that stuff? Looks beautiful! So, where does your training go from here?
  17. Good for you for sticking to your routine, despite the killer busy schedule! Hang in there!
  18. Awww, that's sweet. And I wish you the best of luck with your training and staying in BC!
  19. I concur! I'm in a similar boat as you lately, Doug. Hoping to get my butt back in gear this coming week, though. Just moved, started a new job, been staying with people, financial issues, etc. So, I hear ya! But, MF is right that regular training will help us, so let's get back to it! Oh wait, not that one! This one: Haha!
  20. Wow, that's incredible. (I know, I'm using the word "wow" a lot! ) And I'm so happy that you and Matt have one another to get support from! You guys rock!
  21. Wow, cool, thanks for posting! Do you still enjoy the food, or do you get sick of it? Personally, I love oatmeal and eat it often, but I've never eaten exactly the same things day in and day out before, so I'm not sure how easy it is to get tired of it. How long have you been eating this way?
  22. Hey Dylan, I used to be like that my whole life before going veg*n. I had a real issue with eating meat off a bone... and I guess you nailed that right on the head: it was getting too real for me. I couldn't deal with touching raw meat, eating it off the bone, or the "carcass". It made me mentally sick, but I continued to eat meat anyway because I thought it was normal and necessary, and because everyone told me "just don't think about it." Glad I eventually thought enough about it to stop eating it!
  23. I love what Richard said here, especially because it is a new viewpoint for me with regards to veganism. It reminds me of the fact that I was raised in a very religious household, in which there were many mainstream things I wasn't allowed to do growing up. They always taught us, though, that when asked why we weren't participating in something, NOT to say "because I'm an {XYZ} and we don't do that," but to say something like "because that {XYZ event} is rooted in {XYZ} origins, and that's not acceptable for me." Eventually, sooner or later, it's GOING to come out that I'm vegan, but if they can judge me on me as a person, rather than what I choose to eat or not eat, then I can hopefully paint a better picture of "veganism" for them. I appreciate your comment, Richard! Thanks for posting it!
