ITT let's share favorite recipes and vegan ~life hacks~
>how long have you been vegan?>what made you go vegan initially?>what makes you stick with it?>noticed any health benefits?>tips for beginners?
I don't use measurements but boy do I love smoothies!
1.>kale, avocado, banana, matcha, honey liquid. I like to add cocoa powder or blueberries instead of honey
2.banana, espresso, oatmilk, kale.
3. Peanut butter, kale, banana, cocoa powder, liquid.
4. Mango, pineapple juice, kale, cucumber lemon
5. Carrot, kale, pineapple juice, lemon, capsicum.
6. Melon, banana, mango, kale, liquid.
Kale can be subbed with spinich, these are bases so I will often add additional chia seeds, flax seeds, yogurt etc.
Things I use to thicken: ice, mango, banana, physillium husk(??)
It's been awhile since you posted, but it might help to have some raw greens or a digestive enzyme as your body gets used to the fiber. Some raw broccoli might help. I don't get gas and bloating anymore, but if my tum starts to stick out I hit the broccoli hard with normal meals and it reduces it in a couple days down to nothing.
What do you guys eat when you're trying to lose weight? I'd like to get some ideas. My goal for 2019 is to lose and to do that I need to eat more fruit/veggies and stop relying on processed meat alternatives and carbs. I prefer simple, one-pot type dishes. I'll share a few of my favourites to get started!
Dry soya protein, kidney beans, black beans, tinned tomatoes, onion, garlic, bell peppers, vegetable stock, tomato paste and spices (cumin, paprika, cayenne…). Normally I'd make a really big batch that lasts a week and make different things out of it every day (chili with rice, nachos, quesadillas…) but since I'm cutting down on carbs, it tastes delicious by itself too.
Ramen noodles (used sparingly when I'm dieting so I can fill myself on broth rather than noodles), vegetable broth, kombu, miso paste, a few tablespoons of soy sauce, chili paste (might use fresh chilis since the paste contains flour and salt), spring onions, mushrooms, ginger, garlic, bok choy, mangetout, soft tofu and sometimes a little soy milk.
Chickpeas, tinned tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, garlic, ginger, spinach, bell peppers, curry powder and even more spices (coriander, turmeric, cumin, chili powder). Would normally serve with rice but again, tastes great on its own.
Onion, garlic, carrot, celery, herbs (basil, oregano, parsley, thyme), tinned tomatoes, tomato paste, vegetable stock, cannellini beans, spinach/cabbage and zucchini.
I'm a vegetarian who leans vegan, when I'm alone I only cook vegan and I only buy vegan things. I make exceptions for family dinners and such, they barely understand me being a vegetarian. My biggest drives are environmental reasons and reducing animal torture. I kind of eat like shit most of the time though, like I'll eat vegan chicken nuggets + vegan mayo, or have a day thats all carbs and no protein. I want to start eating healthier, like more legumes and green vegetables.
I'm thinking about going vegetarian. Meat is just starting to gross me out. I used to like sashimi, but lately thinking about eating a slice of raw meat kind of disgusts me.
I already eat a lot of vegetables and soy products (tofu, edamame, etc).
My partner has been on the fence about going vegan before so I think they'd be supportive.
I've been getting into yoga, and it seems like a lot of practitioners advocate plant-based diets as well. But it's hard to separate shilling and real advice.
WHfoods has fish and stuff on their site, and I really trust them. But I suppose omega 3s are available through chia seeds and other plants, as well?
Does anyone have stories about slowly moving over to vegetarianism /veganism?
