Vegan or not, here’s some vegan humor for you. This lifestyle can be intense sometimes because of all the strong feelings around it. Especially from butthurt omnivores in denial… So thank god for humor, don’t know what I would do without it. ;*
Here’s my dinners from the last couple of days. Obviously I’m not the type of person to decorate my plate consciously or place food depending on what looks good. I just throw all the colorful nutrition on there and I’m ready to go. Thought it would be a nice reminder to keep feeding your body healthy plantbased deliociousness and vary your intake a bit. You already know the drill on what’s on there, haha.
Now I’m off to kick ass at the gym. I’m starting this week with a legendary legday and heavy weights. Wish me luck!
Oh my gosh I just realised that I’ve been vegan for over a year now! I started April 1. 2016, and today it’s April 10. I’ve officially saved hundreds of animal lives and tons of water++++:
It’s been a challenging year. Not for the reasons you first think. Eating plant based and figuring out what’s containing animal products and not aren’t diffcult at all, what so ever. If somebody’s telling you that they’re feeding you lies. What’s difficult is dealing with people, their disconnection, their cruel jokes, and ignorance.
If a person comes up to me in a friendly manner, asking out of curiosity, I’m happy to inform. Sadly, that’s not the case for most omnivores. They’ve already made up their minds and their intentions by approaching a vegan isn’t to listen, but rather to argue an already lost discussion because clearly they don’t have the facts on their side. Bad jokes and mindless discussions with fools that don’t want to hear or recognize the truth must be my new top thing on my “strongly despise list. I’m not here to take that crap, I’m here to spread awareness.
On a more positive note, my consciousness is clear! I feel healthy, happy and positive about life from deep within because I know I’m doing the right thing. Going vegan is the absolute best decision I could’ve ever made for the animals, the environment and myself!
Love to you all. Xo!
I’ve never done a taste test before, so I thought it would be fun to do one today. Since dining service is closed on campus, I had to be adventurous and go buy food. It was the perfect occation to try out the vegan options at the grocery shops nearby.
This is what I tested out today:
I also feel the need to add that the closest thing I have to heat my food is a microwave. So don’t expect me to serve you some fancy pancy deliciousness. There’s only so much one can do, alright.
For starters we have 2 minute made vegetable springrolls. Nutrition facts:
If you’re wondering how they tasted, let me tell you; if you love yourself, don’t try them! Ladies and gentlemen, they taste worse than they look, and that says a whole lot. Take a look inside.
Furthermore, our main course today is “All american veggie burger” and it was a gift from god to my mouth after the traumatic experience that the springrolls left me. It was juicy, good in flavour and the consistency was great. It was even better than the vegan burgers I’ve tried at home, and they’re good!
That’s it for today.
As you all know I’m in a period where I’m trying to build muscle, I’m also in college and I bet some of my readers are too. Therefore, I’m going to show my main protein sources and tell you all about how it’s going so far. Hopefully it’ll help someone else in my shoes and inspire others who are thinking about veganism or vegan fitness, OR people who are thinking about their health.
As you can imagine, I were conserned coming to the U.S, because I’d heard so many junk food stories about this country before my arrival. I were afraid there would be little to none healthy options and most of all vegan options. Luckily, I were pleasant surprised when I walked into the DS (dining service) for the first time. There were many healthy options and a big salad-bar.
Now to the protein. My main sources for protein in my meals are various beans, chickpeas, lentils, spinach and broccoli. That’s basically what my lunch and dinner consists of.
My breakfast is my usual oatmeal with berries and fruit. Sometimes I add peanut butter for extra protein.
If I feel hungry when DS is closed I eat this marvellous black bean soup with 18 grams of protein. I’m thrilled that I found it in a store nearby!
After workouts or as a snack I usually eat one of my Clif protein bars – vegan, of course. They taste amazing, even better than non-vegan ones.
Last but not least, my pea protein powder!! When you mix it with cashew milk, soy milk or almond milk it tastes like heaven, hands down. It’s 25 grams of protein per serving and 130 calories. Love it!
Wish you all an amazing saturday.
The three pillars of sustainability:
This is the issue that proves the most problematic as most people disagree on political ideology what is and is not economically sound, and how it will affect businesses and by extension, jobs and employability. Economic development is about giving people what they want without compromising quality of life, especially in the developing world, and reducing the financial burden of doing what’s right.
This pillar contains first of all; awareness of and legislation protection of the health of people from pollution and other harmful activities of business and other organisations. Secondly, the importance of maintaining access to basic resources without compromising the quality of life. Sustainable housing and how we can better build the homes we live in from sustainable material, is also a hot topic today. The final element is education – encouraging people to participate in environmental sustainability and teaching them about the effects of environmental protection as well as warning of the dangers if we cannot achieve our goals
The tremendous harm we do to our environment today is the primary concern for the future of humanity. Environmental protection defines how we should study and protect our ecosystems, air quality, integrity and sustainability of our resources and focusing on the elements that stresses our environment. In addition,it concerns how technology will drive our greener future; the EPA recognized that developing technology is key to this sustainability, and protecting the environment of the future from potential damage that technological advances could potentially bring
The primary goals of having a sustainable lifestyle.
- End poverty and hunger
- Better our standards of education and healthcare.
- Sustainability to include health of our land, air and sea.
- Tackling the effects of climate change, pollution, and other environmental factors that harms people’s health, lives, and livelihood.
I could have written so much more about this subject, but I decide to end it here. I’ll get back to it on a later occasion, I don’t want to overflow you with too much text and information at once.
Just some quick facts to end it with.
The main source of environmental harm
The meat industry/ animal agriculture – THE ONE INDUSTRY THAT HARMS OUR PLANET MORE THAN ANY OTHER.
- A source of 51% of all greenhouse gasses.
- A meatbased diet requires 18 times more land than a plantbased diet.
- Responsible for 65% of the all human caused nitrous oxide emissions (a greenhouse gas with 296 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide).
- Number 1 cause of rainforest destruction.
- Responsible for 91% of the Amazon rainforest destruction.
Everyday ONE vegan saves:
- 1100 gallons of water
- 45 pounds of grain
- 30 sq. ft. of forest land
- 20lbs CO2 equivalent
- 1 animals life
- A vegan diet also cut our carbon footprint by 50%.
Being a superhero has never been easier. Go vegan.
Puh! that’s it for sustainability today.
Have an awesome day!
