Veganism: Everywhere you go, life is a struggle.
"Everywhere you go, life is a struggle. You don't get to choose whether or not your life is a struggle: you get to choose whether that struggle is meaningful, or meaningless. You get to choose what it is you struggle about/for/against, and how. That's my argument for veganism: I won't tell you that it isn't a struggle, I'll tell you that the struggle is meaningful —that it is worthwhile."
I used to have another account at pleroma.site, but I took a break from it some weeks ago.
This account will be about sharing my vegan passion in a positive way.
No stupid drama, just good food and good news! Also some health stuff! Mostly what I do to stay healthy as possible, in a simple and accessible way.
Also pigs are in my avatar, because I like them, and my Chinese sign is Pig too.
“I used to be so proud of not being a pushy vegan, until I realised that ‘pushy vegan’ is a stereotype created by meat-eaters to make vegans feel ashamed of speaking up. They want to keep us quiet because our very existence reminds them that their choices are cruel.”
I am at a point when I simple don't want to talk about how I eat, in public, simple for being ridiculed or others making faces and making little remarks here and there.
So from now on I censor myself to talk about my dietary and exercise habits IRL. Even if they ask me.
And they say, that vegans are the pushy ones...
One weight loss advice people don't really talk about, is that you should not ever ever ever compare yourself to other people.
It's fine if you can get inspiration from others, but don't look at them like a goal. If you can't keep up with the other person you might get discouraged.
Always set your own goals. It might not be even a weight goal, just something like: I will walk 4 days a week.
The results will come with consistency.
Disordered eating cw
r/ zerocarb is absolutely buckwild. There's all of these people saying that they started zero carb and got sick, horrible diarrhea, unbearable cravings, old pains coming back from nutrient deficiency.
Discussing the desire to add even small amounts of carbs gets you banned. Furthermore, they believe that other viewpoints on what humans should eat are bullshit pseudoscience.
There are even people who have said their gums stop bleeding when they eat fruit, but they don't want to add fruit to their diet!
Moral of the story is, if you go on a diet that makes you extremely ill....stop doing it! Your body is trying to tell you something! Even if you're trapped in a cycle of disordered eating, you can reduce harm by not spreading it to others via the internet.
This is one hell of a good recipe video!
With all kinds of great and colorful food! This video is seriously good!
Yes, sure, vegan foods are boring...
Said no vegan ever... :)
If you need drugs to feel better, find a meaningful goal, that's suits YOU!
I don't think about huge goals that you can't achieve, or if you look at it, it's big that you just imidiately give up.
No. Find what you like to do and share it with others. Share it with family, friends or online.
Cooking is an awesome skill to have. It changed my life, even if it came for me at a bad time (my mom's slowly dying).
I have a better life because of it.
[2/2] I have never felt good drinking any type of alcohol. It always tasted bad, and I did it because of social pressure.
In fact it was the opposite. Even if I didn't have hangover, I still felt tired and lethargic for 1-2 days from it. From one beer!
I liked coffee for about a half year, but then I moved to decaf and since ~2 months now I don't drink any. I feel so much better because of it. It's still on the shelf and I have no desire to drink it.

Say after with me:
Marijuana is not a gateway drug. Marijuana is not a gateway drug. Marijuana is not a gateway drug.
And then listen to this podcast and think again...
Don't do any mind and body altering shit, no mater how light it is they say.
Coffee (even tea), alcohol, drugs...
I seriously need to write down which Rich Roll episode I've listened to. :)
So far I walked this week more than last week, when I was just too lazy and only walked 3 days.
Also, today I finally make this excellent chickpea curry from Happy Pear:
Do you have any good vegan book to recommend?
I don't have the exact date, but this month I am 21 month vegan!
Have a good day!
STUDY: Plant-Based Protein Builds Muscle Better Than Milk Protein
Please don't tell this to Joe Rogan or Bobby, because they would explode! We want to laugh at them more!
Note: I didn't check if the study had any conflict of interest.
I don't know if this will get more positive results, but I try to mix my exercise routine.
Instead of my usual walk distance and intensity. I will alternate between:
* one day walk/run (alternating between the two) for shorter distance (about 4-5 km)
* one day longer walk (about 7-8 km)
* one or two rest day (usually weekend)
I am not an exercise guru, and I guess most of the advice are for running, since walking is such a simple exercise...
When your family says: "It doesn't taste vegan." - you know you reached your goal. xD
Making "Stranger Things" Foods at Home! - by Mina Rome
She has such a great presentation and pan jokes! Heheh
Seriously, go check out her channel!
Last week I only went walking 3 times, which is unacceptable. My goal is 5-6 days a week, and one rest day. It might look a lot, but since walking is a low intensity exercise (I also like endurance, long distances more), I think I need to do it more to have results.
Right now my goal is to minimize the fat on my belly, which is the hardest thing to do.
