    Vegan Strong

    I'm not Vegan or Vegetarian but very often eat such. Sometimes buy Vegan deli and recently was finding cold cuts way to salty and that's all I taste and smoked sausage has a weird taste other than a meat taste. I bought some Vegan Mediterranean harissa veggie sausage. I buy other vegan or vegetarian alternatives and ready meals. When my wife and I eat meat it's small portions and from fresh not processed.

    When eating out at a restaurant I'll sometimes look for a Vegan or Vegetarian options,not the meat substitute stuff but if it's a burger then something like bean and veg.

    I'm a flexitarian, but most of the recipes I follow are plant-based. And my favorite muffins are vegan. (Abe's) Even non-vegans benefit greatly from a plant-based lifestyle! And ethical non-vegans (which probably sounds hypocritical to actual vegans) benefit greatly from associating themselves more with vegan cuisine, culture, and society.

      I often think I just eat normal, having been Vegan I've adopted some ideas.

        Just a vent, but I hate how non-vegans are referred to as "omnivores".... That's not a CHOICE, it's BIOLOGY! Whether we choose to ACT on our biology as onmivores or go wholly plant-based is a different story... *rant rant rant* ~End rant

          I'd say about 60% of my meals are wholly plant-based, most of the animal produce meals are non-meat... I can probably count the amount of times I eat meat in a month with my fingers, though not always on one hand. Ah, but I'd have to check my logs to confirm... I put my meal plans in my check-in/training log. I have been leaning more into plant-based meals over time. I intend to be meat-free when my kids leave my house. Since most of them aren't vegan or vegetarian, I am teaching them how to cook according to their own dietary choices. Most of the meals that I teach them to cook are plant-based that have wiggle room for their non-plant-based diets, or are recipes that call for animal products with plant-based alternatives. I want to make sure my kids have access to a wide variety of culinary options so that they can transition smoothly should they decide on a more plant-based diet, or in the event that they succeed in being plant-based, but have kids like themselves that demand meat and cheese and and an endless supply of eggs and peanut butter... HAHAHA!

            The Vegan Strong Team are Vegan bodybuilders and eat a lot of Vegan versions of meat, like chicken substitute, veggie ground etc. I try meat substitutes now and then, Vegan cheese has zero protein. I don't see totally Plant Base is a wise idea, a good balance of food is what I look for. I have been seeing some youtube fitness people who go Vegan then drop it for health reasons, sometimes 3 or 6 years later.

              In today's world everything is chemicals and lab produced food. I'd say strive for fruits and veggies from the local market and meat from a local butchery. I myself eat almost everything, but when my body is aching for veggies I become a vegan for a period of time. It's normal to have days when you don't wanna eat certain foods

                Ah... I didn't know that "Vegan Strong" actually referred to eating specific vegan goods... I eat a lot of plant-based protein sources, but I try to avoid substituting meats and cheeses with packaged vegan variations... I'd much rather make my own from scratch.

                  Vegan Strong Team are bodybuilders who use a lot of protein and get it from many Vegan substitutions of meat but otherwise regular Vegan style.

                        Guide to Protein Powders - Thomas DeLauer, he really recommends pea protein.
                        The protein I have now is a mix of Vega protein and greens plus someone gave me an organic protein blend they didn't like, I forgot the brand coz I mixed them and all I remember it did have brown rice protein in it.



                        I buy India ready meals, all natural vegetarian meals in a pouch from India, also bought vegan meatballs (pea protein) more natural than the Beyond Meat kind and goes great in my Aloo Mutter ready meal. I always buy unsweetened soy milk and dark chocolate soy milk.

                        I like to take creatine monohydrate when I train serious . . .

                          What would you call someone who eats what I call normal ? I was at the market having a pastry and coffee and a stall next to where we was sitting sold Vegan pierogi, a customer announced she was Vegetarian which I thought odd since I don't announce that I eat normal food. People use omnivore coz there's no term for non-vegetarians, imagine saying to a food seller that I'm a non-vegetarian.

                            I'm just super picky about wording sometimes. From a literal-minded point of view, to hear a vegan, who is still biologically an omnivore, call non-vegans omnivore as if to exclude themselves from something that is occurring on a biological lvl feels somewhat urksome. So, I went on a tangent about it. I'm well-aware that it's an unpopular opinion. However, to me, vegans never stopped being omnivores. They simply make a conscious choice not to act on it. As for what an omnivore who chooses to act on it would say, there's no need to say anything. Omnivore is the human default setting. Vegans don't say, "I'm an herbivore." They say, "I'm a vegan." I adopted "flexitarian" as a way to describe my culinary preferences because saying, "I'm an omnivore" every time felt like a big fat "here's your sign" moment. Again, this is just me, and my own personal feelz.. I'm not exactly butthurt over it, just felt an impulse to complain briefly over the technicality of the issue. Everyone makes their own conscious decision in how they wish to be labeled in a social setting... to some, omnivore is it. When describing someone who's not a vegan, you say non-vegan. When describing yourself, personally, you say what you are.
