TLT sandwich at The Daily. So good. Tempeh bacon, avocado, etc....background, vegan calamari (hearts of palm...amazingly good). Beautiful day in RVA! Meals are on the site for ordering! Check it out...good stuff for this weekend!@dailykitchenbar #rvaeats#rvaeats ##plantbaseddiet#plantprotein
Literally one of the cheapest things to eat - rice & beans. Leave out the asparagus, use frozen broccoli and this will cost you around £0.65p per serving 👍🏾 Those beans were soo good! It was a slightly different recipe as I incorporated African yellow peppers and a few other spices I wouldn't normally use courtesy of my cousin @sammysingally. I will send out the recipe on Friday 😊
What is your idea of a cheap & cheerful meal? #veganbysomi ❤️
I LOVE @manitobaharvest Hemp Hearts! I love almond butter! I love bread! I love food! 😊 As a plant based eater, I'm always trying to find delicious ways to amp up my protein. Hemp Hearts (the most nutritious part of the shelled hemp seed) rock in magnesium (which indeed) and for 3 tablespoons there are TEN grams of protein and three grams of fiber. I sprinkle them like pixie dust on everything! LOL If you go to https://goo.gl/HEhkEE and use the code 'TOASTEDONTOAST' you can receive 15% off the entire website through July. And by the way, my son just ate this before I even finished typing. 😊#toastedontoast
Negative Skullcrushers supersetted with Close-Grip Tricep Press 👌 One of my personal favorite triceps exercises. I usually go for a weight that is too heavy to do 8-12 reps of normal skullcrushers but good to do the explosive close-grip tricep presses. For the negative skullcrusher I try to go down as slow as possible while still controlling the weight before pushing the weight up again.
Quick update on my physique, yesterday I woke up at my lowest weight in at 71,5kg which I was really surprised by as I’m trying to maintain and not loose more weight. Currently hovering at around 2800 Cal, still tracking but a lot more loose than before. My workouts feel great, really liking the upperbody/lowerbody split I’m doing, even though my legs were so sore after the last lowerbody workout.
🌱 Are SOY products bad? Man boobs doe 🙃🙆🏻♂️?
🚶🏻➡️🚶🏼♀️The two common fears are man boobs & getting breast cancer ... unfortunately this is based on the misconception that soy contains estrogen-LIKE compound hence acts exactly as estrogen which is false ... what it actually has is PHYTOestrogen (big difference here, comparable doesn't imply similar ... twins look alike but they're not the same person)
👉🏻 First we need to know that we have TWO types of estrogen receptors in the body:
1) Alpha (estrogen can only bind to this one, causing cancer)
2) Beta (phytoestrogen having both pro-estrogenic effect & anti-estrogenic effect can bind to both alpha & beta but is 30x more likely to bind to beta which gives us the benefits from soy)
1) Protecting bones by increasing bone density
2) Reducing hot flash symptoms
3) Protecting against breast, endometrial, ovarian cancers (since phytosestrogen can also bind to alpha receptors, there is a "competition" between both hence there will be less of the estrogen binding so reducing estrogen effects hence reducing the risk of cancer ... as you can see it's a win-win situation with both anti-estrogenic effect (protection against cancer) & pro-estrogenic effect (bone density increase)
👉🏻 How many servings is safe?
Remember that since phytoestrogen can also bind to alpha receptors this means that if there is too much (and I mean really too much) of it then yes it is possible to tip the scale & have the negative effects of estrogen ... the recommended amount of servings based on the available science is 3-5 servings to have the benefits from soy (even 1-3 is fine) ... 5-7 is a grey area and above 7 is where the risk becomes high since IGF-1 levels (compounds found in every stage of cancer) can increase
👉🏻 What is 1 serving of soy?
Example: 1cup of soy milk or 1/2 cup of tofu so as you can see it's not that easy to shoot over the recommended amount (do you even drink more than 5 cups of soy milk per day ? I highly doubt)
✅ Summary: NO soy is NOT BAD ... the science clearly shows its benefits & the ONLY TIME you need to worry about it is if you have more than the recommended servings daily
This past weekend at #im703mt was so much fun and I'm sad it's over 😥! It's such a great weekend filled with good vibes and positive energy where everyone is pushing themselves to the limit! And the best part - a couple of peeps from our crew got to meet world record holder & pro triathlete @lsanderstri - such a beast! He finished 1st on the podium! Check out his story if you want to be totally inspired! Oh, and I became a major #fangirl when meeting him 😂 annnd my brother-in-law @my_triathlon finished 30th overall (out of 2890 athletes 😳) and 3rd in his age category!! Crazyness! Such a good weekend!
Allll of that to say, today's lunch is this deliciously healthy veggie burger. According to #ironman , the best post-recovery meal should include the top 5 whole foods, which this burger features 3 of the 5! It's got high-quality lean protein such as black beans which provide antioxidants that help repair muscle damage, dark leafy greens such as the kale mixed into the burger (and the collard greens as toppers) which provides protein and calcium - perfect for bone building and natural cholesterol lowering benefits, and omega-3 fats such as the ground walnuts which are extremely beneficial to a healthy recovery as they reduce inflammation.
Hope you all had a nice weekend!
🍓 California berry season in full swing!
Definitely been swooping up as many organic berries as possible whenever I hit my local farmers markets. Sweets are my weakness so juicy this bowl has been a lifesaver for me the past few weeks as I’ve been working on curtailing the amount of baked goods from my diet. 😅
💪🏻 Strawberry Protein Bowl:
• 3 small (frozen) organic bananas
• 1/2 cup organic strawberries
• 1/4 cup raspberries
• 2 tbsp @purelyinspirednutrition vanilla protein
• 2 tbsp @bobsredmill gluten-free rolled oats
• 1 tbsp @bobsredmill whole raw flaxseeds
• 1 tbsp @bobsredmill black chia seeds
• 2 tbsp @bluediamond unsweetened almond milk
• 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
• 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Nope, just some local garlic scapes!
You can get these at local 👩🏼🌾farmers markets right now. Mine came in my @mamaearthorganics bin this week!
They look super 😜weird, but taste delish!
What are they?
The flower🌸 stalks of garlic! Garlic doesn't flower, but it does produce flower stalks.
To me they taste just like garlic! Quite powerful!
What can you do with them?
Well last night we made a garlic scape pesto! Just a warning, it can be quite potent!
> Garlic scapes, removed the ends (including the white pod looking ends)
> Lots of fresh basil (from our balcony garden 🌱)
> Fresh lemon 🍋 or lime juice
> Nuts or hemp hearts
> Salt & pepper
> Olive oil
1.) Blend in a food processor until scapes are broken down and almost smooth.
2.) I served mine with some plant based lentil pasta, sautéed portobello shrooms and kale 🌿.

THANK YOUU to all of you who sent your love & prayers to me yesterday while I was in the hospital 🙏🏽❤️🏨
I love every one of you; it helped me tremendously in staying positive! .
Just resting at home today - still in a little pain, although a LOT less than yesterday.
I'll be sure to update you guys on what's going on as soon as I get more info & my results. 💕(Hopefully I'll be back up kickin ass before ya know it 😉) #gratefuleveryday
When they ask me where I get my protein 💪🏽💪🏽 .. Quinoa black bean burgers are LIFE! Oh, and let's not forget the veggie juice (beer, carrot, apple, celery, lemon & ginger). This meal will give you WINGS! 👌🏽👌🏽
I'm personally not Vegan, but man am I loving this Vegan Shake!😋Unlike other protein shakes that I've tried that make me feel bloated, this one makes me feel great and keeps me full for hours. Its only got 100 calories, zero sugar, 15g plant 🌱 protein, and LOTS of iron for those of you who tend to run slightly anemic and feel tired a lot. It's a great way to start your day or sometimes I drink it at night to fend off my sweet tooth cravings🍦🍫🍩
Cinnamon Milkshake with a bit of dark chocolate chunks. My six year old son and my inner six year old self is digging this. We are loving our new plant-based protein blend and just playing in the kitchen. ✌️💚
