meet dr. noon s almond raw he only eats one vegan meal a day that’s right he’ll eats one hour a day proving if you eat healthy you will not lose muscle or lack energy he even set a world record in dead lifting but his goal is not bodybuilding or strength its anti-aging longevity and the highest quality of health and life we’re not telling people to eat only one meal a day but we are here to show you what’s possible with intermittent fasting and that we do not have to eat animal products in order to thrive only a handful of people on this planet have the determination to live this way but it’s amazing what happens when we do mankind is not supposed to have the health problems it does and what we call aging is not normal let the wise words of this master teach and lighten and inspire you hi thanks for being here today it is my pleasure so you only eat once a day that is so I saw the video you’re on the air every you were a dead lifting champion that is so I’m presently the world deadlift champion drug-free world deadlift champion in my particular class I hold on several world national regional Records cyclic fasting for instance is known to potently promote growth hormone release so throughout the duration of a daily fast your growth hormone concentration tends to increase if you combine that with resistance exercise in the evening as you probably know that increases testosterone production when you sleep that increases growth hormone production IGF production so we’re talking about anabolic hormones that essentially promote the preservation of muscle tissue so a regimen which entails daily cyclic fasting evening resistance training all of these things combined to enhance the preservation and also augmentation of muscle tissue so you’re saying somebody’s and 30s 40s and 50s to actually gain muscle if it is regimented if it combines these factors that is increased growth hormone secretion as a consequence of protracted fasting now you notice that working out late in the day is more beneficial than working out earlier in the day what does it matter it does matter and and that is because essentially you want to enhance autophagy throughout the day you want to be catabolism your proteins you want to be catabolism stored sugar and stored body fat but in the evening you actually want to suppress autophagy in order to promote that preservation of muscle tissue so it is resistance training that stimulates your skeletal muscle that provides those metabolic factors that promote muscle retention so yes evening it’s best to do resistance exercise this is actually a good advice for even women they’re older postmenopausal women that who is working out your muscles is part of what keeps you young and do indeed you got to do weight training even if you’re an old lady you got to work here otherwise your bones go week everything starts falling apart it’s important what you’re saying is it helps keep you young this isn’t a vanity thing it’s part what needs to happen in your life indeed indeed and sarcopenia that is age-related muscle wasting muscle loss is a major of catalyst for premature mortality especially in women right they say that the older you get the more you lose muscle the more you lose your hormones the more you start slowly basically falling apart what you’re saying is you keep working out that doesn’t necessarily happen your case yes yes that is quite so you can definitely avert many of those changes and slow down that process so you found that you only have to sleep as much as the average person yes that was one of the first things that I observed I was able to do without as much sleep as I had previously and I was able to recuperate from exertion far more rapidly that I had been in the past I was simply interested intellectually in the pursuit of anti-aging studies anti senescence studies and as I began to discuss this with my then-girlfriend approximately 20 years ago she said this is interesting caloric restriction cyclic fasting specific nutriceuticals a refined diet all of these things clearly demonstrably scientifically contribute to lifespan extension and I explained how I was going to commence collecting data writing a book and she said she’s not my wife by the way new net Munro why don’t we do it and it took some time to reflect on that and I said well why not and that was about a decade and a half ago and through a few evolutions if you will we’ve been on the almond regimen for approximately 15 years without fail it entails a daily fast of 23 hours in duration caloric restriction that is we consume approximately 1,000 to 1,500 calories a day it entails specific nutraceuticals that is nutraceuticals that have been found to increase maximum lifespan in one or more organisms it entails daily exercise it entails meditation ascesis and basically that is the almond regimen qualitatively the diet is devoid of meat and centers on specific staples if you will basically nuts grains tubers dried fruit we always eat in the evening we consume our evening meal our main meal after our evening resistance regimen our exercise is typically organized in such a way that in the morning we engage in so-called persistence exercise what you might call aerobics in the afternoon that’s typically another aerobic session time permitting and in the evening is the resistance exercise session and this can entail a number of different standard conventional weight lifting exercise with integrated weighted yoga postures in between sets and after this evening resistance session is meditation or final meditation session because meditation is interspersed throughout the day we meditate in two different postures and one of those postures I can demonstrate to you briefly this posture is called a rule AHA that is standing home and this is the posture that I typically assume in my brief of periods of meditation say 10 to 15 minutes Aroo AHA is a composite Egyptian term and it means again standing form the ultimate intent of all minimalist meditation is to progressively produce a state of sustained tranquility where ideas images emotions are expedited from the mind there are essentially 10 domains of interventional studies what I call the two tractus of anti-aging interventions several of fundamental they include caloric restriction cyclic fasting and specific nutraceuticals and a range of discrete genetic modifications that alter specific physiological phenomena in organisms almost all of them will entail either an increase in the optimization of autophagy and that is simply a process that enables the body to renew its tissues glycation is an important phenomenon glycation is that process whereby circulating sugars bind to protein lipids in the body and render them resistant to renewal that accelerates aging you also have fat accumulation or adiposity that has been found to increase the rate of Aging and limit lifespan but more specifically it’s been found that the extra patient of adipose the diminution of adiposity increases maximum lifespan in mammals and other organisms people you say there’s no way you can have that kind of muscle and not eat for 23 hours a day maybe it’s I know the body’s more efficient but people are going to say well doesn’t your bodies are eating up the muscle after a while actually limited muscle catabolism is a good thing limited tissue catabolism is a good thing and it might be illuminating to conceive of it in this way the vast majority of the solid component of your body consists of proteins and each of those proteins that constitute our proteome so to speak have a definite life span and the integrity in health of your body is largely dictated by the integrity of your individual proteins so if you are able to prevent damage to the corpus of proteins that constitute your body or increase the rapidity with which you renew and recycle proteins you are functionally physiologically younger there are a lot of people I’d say because it used to be protein protein protein what are you getting your protein Gatti animals nowadays the big thing is where you get your sugars like the body needs to have sugar to run on sugars the body’s fuel if you don’t put sugar in your body carbs all day long it’s gonna you’re gonna basically waste away wait what do you think of that well there’s a fascinating body of research which indicates that the process of glycation is integral to aging and glycation is that process whereby simple sugars illicitly bind to the body’s proteins and render them resistant to that process of renewal and this has been found to greatly accelerate aging that’s one aspect of it the other aspect is that when scientists have subjected animals to a low glycotoxins ayat’ that is a diet that is low in so-called advanced glycation in products this independently increases lifespan so you have a concomitant effect if you reduce the endogenous generation of glycation products and of course the best way to do that is simply to reduce your circulating sugar concentration to the lowest extent practicable and you avoid or reduce your assimilation of exogenous advanced glycation in products which are created upon cooking and our extent in various foods whether cooked or not you can increase lifespan through this Avenue of glycation restriction and this is one of those interventions that are included in the so called detractors of anti-aging interventions that is glycation diminution and this points to the fundamental importance of cyclic fasting as an avenue of lifespan prolongation because it is cyclic fasting that most potently suppresses the concentration of circulating sugar the lower the concentration of circulating sugar in your body the less sugar you have to attack your body’s tissues and to render them dysfunctional if you will where you say you get your energy family if your glucose levels and alone oh that’s an interesting question most individuals have an appreciable amount of energy stored in adipose and this points to another element of the detractors of anti-aging interventions and it’s that if animals are rendered lean through either surgical expectation of adipose tissue targeted genetic interventions which decrease adiposity that increases lifespan independently so in a convoluted way what I’m saying is that when you don’t consume exogenous sugar you make use of that stored adipose and that extra patient of adipose independently promotes longevity obviously you can get energy out of fat but you don’t have a lot of fat on you so where do you get your energy from I like your question because that points to the third Avenue which is autophagy when you deplete your glycogen largely from your liver and your skeletal muscle and again the morning aerobic exercise stimulates that and you have a low content of adipose tissue your body makes use of stored proteins it Khattab eliza’s all of your body’s proteinaceous tissues and recycles them as substrates for energy and that autophagy conduction of energy metabolism if you will contributes to lifespan prolongation by renewing proteins more rapidly under sustained caloric restriction or cyclic fasting skeletal muscle is preferentially preserved and there are more labile proteins that are catabolized before protein and before brain tissue so these are selectively preserved so ok let’s talk about your your diet so here you eat a lot of nuts and visit roots start just things like that yes grains grains really all this within an hour yes or less skills we have our tripartite meal if you will and by tripartite I mean that the first thing we consume when we break are 23 plus hour fast is what I call the almond amino elixir consisting of three protein sources soy spirulina brewers yeast and ideally a dozen isolated amino acids and the next thing we consume is the main meal one of those staples of which I mentioned earlier these typically include beans and rice um typically we have one of three beings cannellini beans is my favorite the red kidney beans and when I say bean this is the common bean phaseolus vulgaris and then many different cultivars but one of the main reasons that we select the bean as an optimal staple if you will is because there are many properties associated with the common being that accord with lifespan extension and these include inhibiting the enzyme alpha-glucosidase which promotes optimal glycemia if you will these are called a fiber which really helps that sugar levels and you don’t get rid of toxins it’s great tindy probably not the best cook foods you have if you don’t go with cookies is great okay go I’m sorry wrong no no yes roots tubers rice grain and nuts and seeds fruit and fresh vegetation is not high on our list of staples and that’s simply because the cellulose and the water content take up space if you will so if you have a regimen where you’re constricting restricting your feeding to an hour or less and you consume foods that occupy a large volume have a higher water content indigestible fiber over time that can reduce your sense of satiation so you want to have nutritionally dense foods in order to essentially derive the most nutrients in a minimal amount of time right you wanna drink a Surrey and then there is the minor meal and the minor meal is nothing more than a dessert typically nuts dried fruit often what you might call peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or peanut butter and Nestle bot sandwiches which roughly means royal jelly that’s one of the staples of our minor meal and I say peanut butter and jelly with some reluctance because it differs a bit from what you might find in a typical grocery store it simply crudely crushed peanuts and fruit preserves on bread that’s a typical dessert a typical dessert may also be roasted peanuts with dark chocolate I’m glad you said peanut bars I love Hannah butter and everybody says peanuts our dad’s got the toxins in it after Lou Thompson toxin air that is why roasted peanuts are actually preferential in our ethos if you will um because if you consume raw peanuts or germinated or so peanuts it promotes that growth of fungal organisms and aflatoxins but um just to give an indication of the scientific basis there is an entire tract taped with several sections that discuss multifarious epidemiological and interventional studies which find a relationship between longevity and nut consumption and peanuts are particularly prominent in those studies that is it’s been found that consumption of peanuts of quartz with lifespan the particular variety is simply crushed um crunchy peanuts with little added salt no other ingredients pie is almost all he averaged over there palm oil sugar the sugar and all that that’s why I’m sometimes reluctant to call it peanut butter because of the confusion that is essentially the almond meal the tripartite almond meal throughout the 23 hour fast we typically consume teas in herbal infusions of various sorts these include green tea black tea oolong tea but also two of the South African teas honey bush and red tea or rooibos hibiscus one of my favorites rhubarb tea and any number of herbal infusions most of which have been found to influence one of these several physiological factors that we know are operative in the aging process and those again include autophagy optimization glycation inhibition fat oxidation diminution of inflammation etc so when you say nutriceuticals that sounds like something from the pharmaceutical industry you’re talking about herbs and natural things that’s quite correct there several of these one is niacin bound chromium another is glucosamine another is curcumin or turmeric another is resveratrol and combined with cyclic or intimate and fasting the polyphenols that you find in green tea in blueberries and in pomegranates so when we speak of nutraceuticals we’re talking about these agents and physiologically all of these nutriceuticals have been found to modulate one of several molecular mechanisms and again we have our familiar glycation autophagy induction immune enhancement and lipid oxidation or minimization and you take these throughout the day as stand with your teas and wired stuff yes yes the tea’s that we consume when they are sweetened they’re sweetened with non calorific sweeteners such as stevia which is essentially the sole sweetener that I use during my fasting period so your stomach yeah sorry not at all it’s a good sign no this is actually a good comparison here you haven’t eaten in a while your stomachs growling he hasn’t eaten since yesterday and he’s still fine my accessory yeah well that sucks boy excellent and actually that effect is partly attributable to a peptide called ghrelin and it is released by the gastrointestinal tract in response to food deprivation it actually increases the expression of a peptide called BDNF brain-derived nerve growth factor which increases the proliferation of neurons in the brain specifically in the hippocampus an area that’s associated with learning and memory and that is probably among the reasons that fasting and caloric restriction increase mental or cognitive acuity so this might explain people in India there mainly are vegetarians and they don’t eat a lot but yet they have some of the smartest people in the world I can like literally like calculate to the 100th decimal point and these people that then say you need me you need animal products you need fat you need sugary all that stuff tin to function properly you got it dialed in to the point where you’re you’re proving you need any help products I’m somewhat conventional and that I promote the ingestion the use of essential multi-mineral multivitamin supplementation and whenever someone subsists on a calorically restricted diet either quantitatively restricted or temporally restricted it’s important to ensure that you get the minimal requisite amount of essential nutrients right and that’s what I get from a standard vegetal micronutrient micro minimal mineral supplement I take that in powdered form in the almond amino elixir and it’s the first thing that we consume on an empty stomach and that’s designed essentially to be sufficient as a source of energy and nutrients without the need for any food at all so the elixir is intended to deliver all essential nutrients in a form that is easy to assimilate and the meals are simply for satiety and indulgence because I think that’s an important point to stress if you’re going to have a lifelong regimen that is predicated upon lifespan prolongation it has to be sufficiently palatable in order to be sustained over a lifetime and indulgence gratification is an important element of enjoying life and we do find that our diet is very palatable very enjoyable even with the perceived monotony we loved in it feeding time is always festive it’s always a feast if you will what the research indicates is that both cyclic fasting and caloric restriction greatly increased energetic efficiency such that organisms can make do with less all of their physical cool systems become more efficient and they’re able to effectuate their physiological operations with far less energy and that reduced energetic demand actually results in a lessened generation of those deleterious byproducts of metabolism free radicals for instance advanced glycation in products so with a reduction in metabolism you get a concomitant reduction in waste products and other deleterious agents that damage the body so the less waste products that your body has to deal with the more clean areas more efficient it is indeed being clean is almost more important than massive amounts of fuel just being guzzle down indeed another effect that has been observed widely on caloric restriction cyclic fasting and other interventions that increase lifespan is a decrease detoxification capacity and more specifically an Augmented expression of so-called Phase two enzymes or xenobiotic enzymes and these are enzymes that are specifically expressed in the liver also kidney and other tissues that essentially convert toxins in such a way that enables them to be expiated from the body more efficiently so this is thought to be a major factor in the lengthening of life’s been associated with fasting and caloric restriction so the L of the organs that help eliminate toxins from the body the liver the kidneys if they’re cleaner they can focus more on producing enzymes and keeping you running optimally rather than just cleaning the house and getting rid of unwanted garbage indeed and also as we discussed together we are exposed to multi Farias toxins that we can do little as individual to avoid in our modern environment so to the extent to which we can augment our detoxification capacity we can protect ourselves from some of these toxins that would otherwise be ubiquitous that are ubiquitous and we simply can’t avoid right the toxins in the air the water even the negative people it just drains us our life works and dude so the cleaner we are mentally physically and emotionally the better we can thrive as long living healthy beings indeed but I must interject an element of my philosophy and that is I wholly accept the inevitability of Aging I wholly accept the inevitability of death and my regimen is simply predicated upon postponing that process to the greatest extent prime having a high quality of life indeed which is much below the last 40 years they’re just falling apart yeah explaining about the other people yeah and it’s important to have sufficient energy mentally and physically in order to arrive at the psychological philosophical existential state that you wish to attain before that ultimate end you have a website you want it I mean these I want to know more advice blog where do I go you can go to our website almond car elite athlete calm and it has a description of my overall regimen on the literature that I’ve produced and how to acquire it I don’t sell my materials I release them with a donation to individuals who are earnestly interested and I stress that because our order our regimen is ascetic and it’s clearly not for everyone so I’m interested in individuals who serious right there’s a lot of people can say this can be something that takes I get bigger muscles are live longer or not get sick right there is no quick answer you have to this has to be a lifestyle a way of living a being and all-encompassing lifelong protocols right right so folks this bought of this this is not for most of you who want a quick fix for something this is a dedication to a life of way of living Wilson yeah well thank you for your time and you’re quite an inspiration and hopefully we’ll check in again in a while and any last words of advice for people living the modern world we’re kind of like ready to throw their arms in the air and say I how I I give up I don’t know what to do subjecting yourself to self-imposed discipline is the surest way to increase the quality of your existence period great thank you you’re quite well wow what a video huh I’m gonna summarize the important parts for you guys you weren’t paying attention because there’s some really important points to be made here first of all we’re not telling you guys to only eat one meal a day this is an extreme diet it’s only for a few people in the world who willing to dedicate their lives to this but what we are trying to do is show you a that you will not waste away if you fast daily that you know 60 eats one meal a day I’m telling people to only fast for 16 hours a day and eat for 8 hours so there’s really an you don’t have the animal products in order to have muscles notice he also said sugar ages did he catch that part he does aerobics several times a day and he does weight-bearing exercises at night aerobics cardio and weight exercises are not the same thing okay you got to move your body notice he did a lot of standing during the day standing versus sitting so we intermittent fasting standing him versus sitting and he when he eats his meal the reason he has heavy things like beans and rice and peanut butter things like that is because he needs to feel full he wants to enjoy his meal he said that he gets his nutrition before he has his meal from a plant-based supplement kind of like my green formula we have all your minerals and vitamins and phytonutrients and he has some amino acids just like my protein formula and then he has his meal to feel full and then he has his dessert to feel good so he gets the pleasure out of meetings not denying himself anything so it is he very similar to could tell more Berg in Norway that got the wheelchair guy who healed himself and walked 600 kilometers across Norway eating nothing but my green formula and protein formula and having some cashews and coconut oil to feel full very similar to what mom and rod is doing he has his nutritional supplement and then he has his heavier nuts and things which you can also get some protein and substance from so this is really inspiring notice he also said no stress really important because you will age and die if you have stress in your life so do what you can get the important bits of information from this because this is gold this guy’s taking it to the extreme and to show you what’s possible you will not waste away if you fast every day ok this guy’s only needing one meal a day we’re not even telling you to do that you can eat you can have a bunch of meals during the day but fast eat good things stay close to nature I hope this inspired you guys stay tuned for more at Marcos INSCOM to learn more study or contact dr. Nuno Monroe his website is almond TA elite athlete calm that’s am en tal ite athlete calm this is Marcus with Marcos news calm we hope this inspired you
Hey Margie’s welcome if you’re new I’m Melissa over the holidays I shared some gluten-free bread recipes that a lot of you love but I had so many requests to do a version without eggs so I put it on my list or recipe tested and today I’m sharing with you a gluten free bread that is also vegan no eggs at all and just like my other three breads this recipe also uses no yeast no bread machine and requires no kneading nice I start by combining my dry ingredients I use a mix of brown rice flour buckwheat flour baking powder make sure yours is gluten free if needed baking soda xanthan gum and salt whisk it up separately I warm some almond milk and ground flaxseed and let it thicken for a few minutes it may not look as viscous as flats egg but you’ll feel that it’s thickened when you whisk it after about ten minutes I whisk some agave or honey for non-vegan and apple cider vinegar into the milk mixture – then I can add the dry and the wet and combine it will be a thick dough into a loaf pan it goes I like to line mine with parchment paper for easy removal and to prevent sticking I add some rolled oats as a topping but you could use any seeds or chopped nuts to make that baby for over an hour until the bread is lightly golden it will spring back when touched cool it completely before removing from the loaf pan and slicing Wow it is dark like a pumpernickel bread because of that buckwheat flour the xanthan gum is what helps it pull together as a sandwich bread but the bread should work without it it just might be better for toast instead it’s soft but hearty and even has a little bit of natural sweetness too if you’re wanting a gluten-free bread that doesn’t use eggs this is totally worth a try I hope you enjoyed this recipe please know that I do always read your requests in the comments and do actually keep a running list of everything you asked for so if there’s something you want to see definitely let me know I appreciate you I will be back tomorrow in all this month with more content to kick start your new year be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a beat and don’t forget to hit that Bell so you actually get notified and remember it’s all a matter of mind over munch
In today’s video I’m gonna be showing you guys my top tips for starting a healthy lifestyle so my first tip is to cut out processed foods and one of my favorite ways to just eat naturally and healthy and raw is to make juices now you can buy fresh pressed juice but I actually like to make juice so I’m using some carrots and apples and kale you can use whatever you’d like this is a great way to get your greens in it’s going to deliver vitamins and nutrients to your body and it seriously tastes so good you can’t even taste the green and smoothies are another great way to fuel and nourish your body and what’s awesome about smoothies and juices is that they’re already blended up so they give your digestive system a little bit of a break we’re gonna have to touch on this sooner or later and that is replacing soda with tea or carbonated water something to replace soda with I like to drink my tea and kind of look up new recipes online but you will feel immediate results in your body when you cut out soda you’re gonna have a lot more energy you’re not going to be as tired your blood sugar levels are gonna be a lot more stable overall you’re gonna feel a lot better when you cut out so does two three did you guys know that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated that is unacceptable drinking water is one of the most efficient and effective ways to get you feeling and looking your best so grab a cute water bottle and drink half of your body weight in ounces per day now if you really don’t like water you can try spicing up your water by adding lemon or frozen fruit to it something to give it a little bit more of a taste and I love adding lemon and frozen blueberries to my water might sound a little weird but it’s actually really really good it’s super refreshing and it has a little bit of sweetness to your water being healthy goes so much deeper than being in top physical shape oftentimes we overlook our emotional health because we view healthy as a superficial idea limiting it to how our bodies look so write in your journal or take a bubble bath and start taking care of yourself from the inside out even exercise goes far beyond just shaping how our bodies look it helps relieve stress produce feel-good hormones in our bodies and even helps with a good night’s sleep so I suggest planning out your workout the night before along with setting out your workout clothes so that you have no excuse when it comes time to start your workout I’ve been using speed when the Sun Goes Down so should you in fact when you sleep your body regulates the hunger suppressing hormone leptin as well as your cortisol levels which keep your metabolism up so make sure you’re getting adequate rest every night the most important thing to remember when creating the habit of exercise is to do something you love to do you simply will not be able to stick to a plan of exercise if you’re doing something you don’t enjoy so figure out what you like do you like long walks quick jogs and upbeat spin class find what works for you and do what works for you where you are we learn [Music] is my [Music] passers-by there is no better time to begin your healthy lifestyle than today in fact the only thing we are ever completely sure of is right now in this moment the future is never guaranteed so why wait to start living a beautiful healthy active life later when right now is really all that you have.
This last year I decided to make some huge shifts in my life I made the choice that mediocrity would no longer have a hold on me instead my life would be consumed by hardwork self-discipline and passion I love that sound every day I wake up in bed next to my beautiful wife is a blessing knowing that today is a brand new day and it’s full of opportunity and Wonder it always stirs up my passion for impacting the world in some kind of new way every day I like to kick off my morning with some positive music something that will get me in the right frame of mind for the rest of the day I’ll go straight into brushing my teeth getting rid of that morning breath then of course hit the shower to wake me up using my steam spray to fight back any morning congestion besides washing my face and going through the necessary steps of my skincare routine I always find the shower as a quiet place where I can start my day right with meditation and prayer I never go a day without moisturizing my face so always make sure to use healthy products that are gonna benefit my skin and help me out in the long run now as most of you know I’m part owner of the premium hair care brand called shifu and today I’m actually testing out our newest hair product that we’re currently working on which will be launched a little later this year to go along with our other well-known products such as ocean clay which of course I used to style my hair with just about every day to save myself time I usually like to figure out what I’m gonna wear the night before especially on big days like today because in a couple hours from now I’ll be launching a little something I’ve been working on called individuals which is a community brand that anyone can be a part of individuals is all about embracing that things that make you unique your strengths your weaknesses see most people think that you have to be perfect to impact the world I say let people be inspired by your imperfections now I’m a big fan of staying healthy and keeping my body performing at the top of its game so every morning I’ll have my daily dose of vitamins and I’ll make a couple of these health drinks for my wife and I that are full of antioxidants fiber and other healthy ingredients we’ll have this along with an awesome breakfast that my wife always makes for us I like to always start off my day by reading positive development books I believe that having a high-quality personality is even more important than having a high quality style C in school we were never taught how to have vision or be an entrepreneur how to brand our name or how to even be good husbands or family men so reading learning and stretching ourselves every day is mandatory now about two or three days a week I like to go outside and just meditate I follow wim Hof’s breathing method and I absolutely love the way it makes me feel if I’m in need of a boost my wife and I like to hit up the coffee shop especially this little place called the breviary it’s this really good coffee joint located in Saint George Utah [Music] [Music] now this is also a great spot where I like to do all of my work before launching individuals I still need to upload and publish this YouTube video that I’ve been working really hard on for the last few days you know every time I post a video I get so excited to be able to chat with you guys in the comments section all the love and support that I get from you all is truly amazing and I feel so grateful that I get to be able to create content for a living and now that my videos up I’m gonna be taking the next hour just to finish up some final touches on some artworks just in time for the launch of individuals you know it’s crazy I’ve always wanted to create something that what you guys can be a part of and individuals is just that so if you want to join for free then click the link below and get a free gift for myself [Music] now before I continue my work today I’m gonna take about a two hour break and hit up the gym to get a workout in you know working out is a huge priority in my life it also gives me a chance to break away from my crazy world and put my focus elsewhere and just let my mind go kind of like meditation in a way now that my work is finished it’s about midday and I’m gonna be heading home to hit an a quick meal shower off and then I’ll be heading to my home studio for a few hours before working on some more videos for YouTube it’s kind of funny my brother and I grew up making music and this is how I was actually introduced to the whole YouTube industry way before i produce videos david and i used to make music and travel doing shows then one day we got in contact with a little youtube channel called tokyo TV that wanted to use our music for their videos so now things have come full circle and we’re getting ready to release our first album in over six years it’s been nothing but hard work and major dedication getting back into the groove again and creating our new sound over these past few years but now we’re ready to impact the world in a whole new way you know when it comes down to it being successful is all based on perspective and attitude being 25 and married creating YouTube videos being an owner of shavoo and individuals and now music all in the works my life gets pretty crazy I’m constantly on my grind non-stop but everything I’m doing I absolutely love it I love it all and I feel so blessed that God has entrusted me with so much I mean I can honestly say that I am truly grateful you know when you push yourself and I mean truly push yourself and when you stay grateful and full of faith no matter what circumstance that your current that’s a beautiful thing when you’re constantly helping other people and constantly dreaming big dreams regardless of what small-minded people think that to me is what true success is [Music] you [Music]
What is up you guys welcome back to my channel and Happy New Year today’s video I thought this would be the perfect timing to just share with you seven tips to just help lead a healthier lifestyle now these are things that I try to do on a day-to-day basis and incorporate into my lifestyle to try to live just overall more healthy so yeah I figured since it’s the new year and usually this is the time of year where people you know set those goals for themselves and try to just live an all-around healthier lifestyles so let’s get right into it alright so my number one tip would be to try and shop more fresh foods what Kyle and I usually do when we go grocery shopping is we like to shop around the outside of the grocery store we try to avoid the aisles as much as possible we really try to eat just fresh healthier foods so for instance when we’re in the produce section we load up on all of our favorite fruits and vegetables and we also try to shop like what’s in season at the time so for instance in the fall time we’ll load up on apples and usually like at our grocery store they have a local selection during the seasons so you can shop locally as well as the fresh foods so that’s always great as well and then like in the summer time it’ll be berries and things like that yeah if you try to live by that rule and just stay towards the outside of the grocery stores and steer clear of like the chip file and stuff like that then that’s gonna really really help you keep like all the bad stuff out of your home and then you’re not gonna be tempted to eat it when you are at home so my next tip would be to have healthier snack alternatives now I know we all get our cravings and I’m the kind of person who craves sweets so I always want like chocolate and cookies and all of that stuff and I know a lot of people crave salty things like chips and stuff like that so what I try to do is make healthier alternatives to sweets that I would be craving so for instance like recently I made a chocolate avocado pudding instead of having chocolate so I mashed up an avocado I tossed in some cocoa powder all this good healthy stuff in there and that I can have my chocolate fix without breaking my diet and another thing that I absolutely love what I’m craving cookies I make these bomb cookie dough bites that are just totally healthy like little protein balls have the recipe on my blog if you guys are interested so any time I’m like craving a cookie or something like that I will just whip those up and they’re super easy and then you don’t have to feel guilty about eating it so if you’re only got a person who likes saltier foods maybe experiment with things like roasted chickpeas and then you can have that as a nice like crunchy little snack and you can season it how you like or maybe some kale chips yeah just find things that are gonna cheer your cravings yeah you’re not gonna feel guilty about eating it afterwards all right tip number three is to stop mindlessly eating now this is something I am extremely guilty of and I’ve been really trying to cut down on it because I just don’t think it’s a good thing to do and that’s just like eating like say when you’re preparing food and you’re just snacking on everything or when you’re dinner’s all ready and you’re literally eating it on your way to sit down so basically take your meal put it at the table and only eat when you’re sitting down and you’re gonna fully enjoy eating that meal otherwise yeah you’re just mindlessly eating and that’s never a good thing because you’re not aware when you’re doing it and you’re just popping things into your body so I think it’s best if you just allot the time and only eat when you’re sitting down and you’re actually able to fully enjoy it so tip number three kind of rolls in to tip number four and that’s to keep a food diary you know this is something I started doing like later in the year last year and it’s honestly like so eye opening it’s crazy so when I was in like my best shape ever like four or five years ago I tracked literally everything that I ate and now that I’ve been trying to like get back on my healthy living and my healthy diet I decided I’d start tracking what I was eating again so I actually used this app called My Fitness Pal and this is the same app that I use like way back in the day so I decided to like redownload it onto my phone and actually like keep track of the things I was eating and it helps you see like if you’re getting all the vitamins and protein and everything into your diet as well so it tracks literally everything like if you have a cup of spinach you just pop in that cup of spinach and you can see like all the iron you’re getting everything like that so I personally love it for those reasons and just to keep like on track so yeah I think keeping a diary of what you’re eating is extremely beneficial and it just it just makes you aware of what you’re consuming and I think that’s a good thing just to know and not like push it to the back of your mind yeah I personally really like it and it really helps me stay on track personally so that’s why I like to do it and to make sure I am getting enough protein and all of that good stuff into my diet so my next tip would be to find things that are gonna keep you inspired and keep you motivated so what I personally like to do is I like to follow a lot of like veggie food accounts and stuff like that and maybe some fitness people that way I can get that inspiration while I’m just like mindlessly scrolling throughout the day and I think that is such a good thing to do because you want to have things around you or like in your feeds that are gonna keep you inspired and keep you motivated and make you want to live that healthier lifestyle I think it’s really important to just surround yourself with things that are gonna inspire you and keep you motivated because that is gonna affect like your just overall mood like maybe you’re feeling kind of down one day and in the dumps and then you see that quick little exercise video or those yoga poses from before-and-after photos and that’s gonna really push you and motivate you to keep going I also love listening to podcasts and stuff like that whenever I’m like at the gym or I’m just walking I always pop on a podcast that is gonna motivate me or just like success stories and interviews and stuff like that that always always always inspires me and makes me so motivated after I’m done listening so my next little tip would be to get exercise anywhere and everywhere that you can so whether it’s parking far away like when you’re going to the store and then you have to walk into the store and you are getting like those extra steps in or taking the stairs I personally take the stairs all the time I just like to do that and it makes me feel better about myself and also this is probably gonna sound really really weird but this is something that I do like if I I’m cooking food or Sam like warming up a meal in the microwave and I have like two minutes to kill I will do like squats for those two minutes or I will do we practice some yoga poses have been really trying to improve my dancer pose so I’ll do that during those two minutes yeah just anything like that and you’re killing time and you’re also getting in a little bit of exercise so try to incorporate a little bit more exercise whether you’re just doing a stretch while you’re microwaves on or are doing those squats and lunges I think any little bit helps and just to get the blood flowing and your body moving a little bit yeah that’s just something I personally like to do and my last tip tip number seven is to get active in the morning I am the kind of person that has to work out in the morning I don’t usually like working out at night time as much because I’m more likely to blow it off and decide not to go out so I have to like get up in the morning and do it right away kind of thing and then I know I’m good for the day and I don’t have to stress about it and I know for a lot of people like time is an issue in the morning so I would highly suggest finding a quick 10 to 15 minute workout you can do from home right in the morning I will just do like a really really quick like yoga routine or a quick Pilates or a workout or something like that and you really can’t have an excuse if it’s like a 10-minute quick like get your blood pumping kind of class so I’ve mentioned before that I absolutely love like yoga with Adriene and boho beautiful and boho beautiful has a ton of classes that are literally just like 10 to 15 minutes and some of them really get your freaking sweat on so literally no excuses there are tons of YouTube classes you can do that are 10 minutes long and it just honestly helps it sets your mood for the day and you are gonna feel so good afterwards you never regret working out ever so I would definitely recommend just finding something quick to do right in the morning before you even start getting ready you make it the first thing you do when you get up and you were gonna feel like a million bucks afterwards and just be ready for the day alright guys so that wraps up my seven tips for living a healthier lifestyle like I said these are just like easy little things that I try to incorporate into my life to just live overall more so let me know what you guys do to try to live a healthier life on a day to day basis because I always love hearing everybody else’s tips as well and yeah that wraps it up so I will see you guys in my next video bye [Music]

More important is the time that I’m having while I’m training in the actual fight you know the fight is just a result upon my training was and how I’ll prepare that way so if you put too much pressure on the result and you have an attachment to the result then you’re always waiting for that moment you don’t enjoy everything that happens up until that moment flights gonna happen on that day when that day comes I’ll get my adrenaline going but I’m not going to get my adrenaline going today over that let’s start from closed guard today if you open the legs keep going if you get to half guard keep going into a full pass if the guy turns to his knees the guys I hear boom it turns to his knees keep going until it’s a full pass if he gets both hooks then you stop all right if you sweep or submit you stop all right let’s go my name is Kron Gracie I was born in Rio de Janeiro Brazil I’ve been competing which it’s my whole life teaching my whole life more recently like the past five years I’ve been focusing on MMA Jiu Jitsu is the biggest foundation for fighting I think if you don’t know jiu-jitsu it’s gonna have a hard time to get into a real fight with somebody because the fight is most likely going to end up on the ground at some point so I think jiu-jitsu is the most valuable martial artist I’ve been teaching introduced my whole life I spent a lot of time building this gym spending a lot of time building my jiu-jitsu spend a lot of time building my students good job guys good morning everybody are you guys ready for some apple cider vinegar shots for what if I cannot do this first helps flush out my body of my system first and then I’ll have like either your water or lemon water at least just water for me I like to stay light in the day and I get my body just enough of what it needs to get through that workout or through that next stage luckily Eggs Benedict right now or the big meal it’s going to slow me down I used to be able to eat anything and go train and do anything you know any 20 year old kid is going to be able to eat anything and perform still I’m going to be 28 so there’s only so long you can fight for if I’m like eating bad foods it’s really putting my body in danger it’s really putting it in risk I enjoy to eat healthy because I enjoy being able to train the way I train able to feel the way I feel and I’m supporting things that are good for the environment good for the world basically haven’t eaten a year I eat fish and I don’t need too much dairy I don’t drink milk I don’t eat that much gluten it just kind of happened slowly you know it took a long time for me to be able to really believe and not being able to eat meat and still be a professional athlete I’ve been doing jiu-jitsu since basically before I can remember what is what I already was training with a little ghee on and a little yellow belt I started learning with my father and he learned with his father so we come from a very strong foundation of jiu-jitsu my grandfather was the Jiu Jitsu what Einstein is to mathematics you know he basically took Japanese Jitsu which was based on explosiveness and strength and started developing his own techniques his whole mission was to prove that jiu-jitsu was based on leverage and that a weaker man can beat a bigger man within a little bit of time he became the one who was the representor and like actually fighting and his brother kind of stepped inside and became the businessman and them together was real made the Gracie family one had 21 kids the other one had nine kids and they just basically created this army of little jiu-jitsu champions biggest martial arts family in the world and we’ve been representing for hundred years most people who even watch fighting don’t even know who the Gracie’s are it’s almost lost and your arm trying to make sure that the family name is kept alive [Music] you we’re in Santa Monica and we’re gonna run six miles to Venice pier and back you really don’t need that much food like if you’re eating like nutritious food with nutrients in small meals you can keep your energy level way higher have a better endurance have a better training have a better everything you know you live longer move faster and think better when you eat a lot of food it makes almost like slow I’ve eaten like that too and I eat like this and I’m able to perform way more and do more if I eat less and just see good food I [Music] train for triathlons to help me with fighting for me triathlon and running and biking and swimming is just fun and being out and just doing something different because I’ve been caged up in a gym with a bunch of men training sweating just grappling and punching that it’ll drive you crazy I’ve learned a lot of breathing from my father you know he from a little young age my dad you always was encouraging me to learn how to breathe and he always did diaphragm work and did a lot of movement with breathing and as I get older and older and older more difficult situations more mental stress more physical stress all these things start adding up and I kind of started to breathe more and I kind of restarted to notice that it was a big part of my life and a big part of my growth and my peace so I started to put more time into it and I’ve created my own like sequence of things I like to do in ways I like to breathe things that I think are important luckily I brought a a backup protein this is this plant-based protein I really enjoyed being like good news you know tired you know like II hydrated overworked broken down sore I really enjoyed those students vision makes me feel alive you know this is a bag of sport endurance gel just sugars and salts and potassium extra lights and stuff like that I try to be in touch with what’s coming in my body what’s going out of my body if I need energy how am I going to get it from Piper to awake how am I going to relax I’m just testing all these things out finding out what works for me what’s up and I have a number one piece and yeah yeah we’re going to do it all [Music] sometimes you don’t have it but today you have it the lentils right here and I’m gonna get the hummus too wherever there thank you this is ginger this is tumeric right and then you want to explain them what this is twelve complex with a little bit of an alkaline water the vitamin b12 that we use is derived by algae and easy to bring her everywhere she can explain everything so I don’t have to explain I’m not getting much of this right now I really feel like like this much of this and I can train for another like two hours three hours easy by now my priority isn’t eating my priority is training so I’m gonna eat what I need just to get me through the training after I’m done with all my workouts then I’ll just take time to eat and you gear up and get ready for the next day it’s six o’clock yeah I’m going to go to my house show there for a little bit and then we’ll go from there ah my personal masseuse I mean it’s not like an actual massage but it definitely helps makes me feel good like my body knows exactly when ten minutes is up I already know oh so I’m ready to minerals and this helps oxygenate your blood there’s no typical day for me you know every day is a little different I follow my intuition you know what I feel what feels right to me which was my body what feels good to my training that isn’t on a schedule except for it at 7 p.m. I got to be at the gym the last few years been kind of more focusing on my MMA I’ve been teaching less and focusing more on my progression and I have to put a lot of time into other things besides you Jitsu so I’ve been working my boxing in my judo kickboxing karate and my overall performance physically mentally and spiritually to reach these strong points in the fight after training you drink a lot of water and you drink a lot of liquids because I’m dehydrated I’m delusional because I didn’t drink a lot of liquids throughout the day so I’m first trying to get all my liquids in and then once that goes down I can eat [Music] it’s 10:30 right now it’s pretty early sometimes I only get out of training like I leave the gym at 11:00 or leave the gym at 12 thank you those are mice got a fight no no I was supposed to fight this month but we got pushed back to September can I have albacore sushi okay chrome grace hero a sweet shrimp and a baked crab hand roll avocado can I have a hug green tea and a Pellegrino yeah I was like man I like this roll we’re like a California roll with big scallops on top and they’re like but we don’t make that roll I was like can you make it for me and they’re like yeah and I’ve been coming here since I was like 12 years old so they just started making it for me and I’ve been trying to get him to put it on the menu but they just they’re like oh my god I guess I got to win a lot more fights when are we gonna get the Kron Gracie wrote on the menu that everybody wants to know only for me I’ll accept it hi it come race the road oh no very tasty good to get like a little light she she puts a lot of nutrients good protein and just good food if I were to try to eat like a big bowl of pasta or somewhere and I couldn’t do it this is baked crab with avocado to tell you truth right now I’m I’m already full I’m only eating this cuz I read or do I get pool quickly my first meal especially if it is close to training this is gonna pass and then I’m gonna get really hungry while you’re going to ask for all those calories that I burned see I’m still kind of full from all the drinks and all the training I’m still kind of tripping and stuff this is just for right now and then I’m going to eat at least at least one more time you know but once I’m done with my training now I forget about my training I try to forget about as much as that possible and I just hang out with my friends or hang out with myself or do my research or eat food relax this is the time I get to enjoy the day like really and I think life is about working hard then also getting to enjoy it and appreciate it and look back and I really absorb it for the next morning early I thought matinee Saturday matinee hello campus a pickup order please all right well gang it oh yeah can I get a breakfast burrito please with no meat and extra guacamole on the side Kron Carolyn see after training I could barely walk now I’m already like almost normal again until tomorrow morning then I won’t be room 11:40 yeah just getting home it’s early this is a really day for me so good about it it’s gonna be easier wake up tomorrow but I’ll still be up for at least 3-4 hours now I actually feel hungry before I was just eating just because it’s time to eat I’m gonna I was hungry too but but not definitely feel more hungry I feel like my body’s asking for what it’s just getting through all that water and all that that I drink I know that if I wanted to if I had to I could probably eat a lot and go work out and build train myself to do that but I just don’t feel like that’s necessary you know I feel like I like the way I do my thing [Music] people get comfortable in whatever they do I get comfortable when I’m in my gym I can be that all my students I’ve taught them everything they know and once I reach that comfort it’s not the most interesting thing for me because for me to really be able to improve and achieve things that are greater than me I have to put myself in an uncomfortable place that’s where I like to be you know so anything that makes me uncomfortable there’s going to benefit me from our mental of my physical I’m going to try to do you know I don’t really think of the famous what what I used to think it was you know I used to really want to be known for fighting and known to be the best in the world and I still want to be the best because I want to push myself to those limits but if I wasn’t going to push those limits with martial arts I would push those limits with other things you know whether it’s like environment for spirituality I still have it in the back of my mind that I have a bigger purpose and I don’t want to have any regrets with myself because I didn’t do what I felt was right and I feel like what I’m doing is right but I also feel like there’s a lot more to do in a global way so if I can use my fighting in my martial arts to help me achieve something better for the world that’s what I’m doing it for [Music]
Whoa do you see all the vegan food here? Hello everyone it’s rose and welcome back to cheat lazy vegan and another video today you guys is something that I haven’t done for a very long time which is a grocery haul but it’s not just a grocery haul this is going to be a grocery guide for anyone that is new to veganism or is interested in transitioning into a vegan or anyone that’s just interested in a more plant-based lifestyle in general I know that this is vegan uary at the moment which is when people go vegan for the month of January and so there may be a lot of you that are very new and kind of overwhelmed with this lifestyle so I hope that this video is of help to you I have tons of recipe videos on this channel that are simple and easy and affordable to show you guys the vegan lifestyle is really not that difficult if you plan it properly and if you kind of are going into it with a little bit of research a little bit of knowledge so I’m hoping that this video can provide you with a little bit of that I actually have done a video like this a few years ago when I kind of first started my youtube channel and it’s actually very relevant today so if you want to watch this video and the older one both might be helpful to you I actually filmed that one in the UK when I used to live in London so if you aren’t living in the UK maybe that’s more relevant to you now I live in Canada so yeah all of these products that I purchased are from just one big grocery store meaning I did not go to a Whole Foods I did not go to a natural food store of any sort I just went to a plain old big grocery store I just want to remind you guys that you don’t need to shop at Whole Foods you don’t need to shop at Planet Organic of course those places are great and wonderful for a lot of things but the majority of the time I just show up at a regular grocery store you don’t need to go to those expensive stores to maintain a few can lifestyle so yeah I’m just going to go ahead and show you guys everything I got I’m also gonna go through how much everything costs at the very end so I hope you guys enjoy alright everyone here are the groceries lined up on my island here I’m standing on my stool so hopefully this cheap stool from Ikea will not break wish me luck hi this is totally old school cheap lazy vegan style I’m excited I’m gonna show you guys everything here I’m gonna go through everything and I’m also going to tell you in the end how much everything costs so you get an idea of vegan food costs spoiler alert it’s really not expensive to shop vegan anyways let’s get started alright I’m gonna start in this left corner here and these are kind of my grains I kind of arranged it in the best of my ability so bread really important a lot of people think bread is not vegan friendly that’s just not true a lot of bread especially store-bought bread like this is vegan friendly just make sure you check the ingredients list but most of the time it is actually big and friendly so I always like to get whole-grain just because it’s a little bit healthier so yeah we also have some pastas again people think pasta is not vegan friendly most of the time it is guys just make sure again check that ingredients list by the way if you’re new vegan and you’re confused at the ingredients list if it says may contain when it says may contain it is an allergy issue for example they may have produced this in a factory that also produces something that contains eggs so it doesn’t mean that the end product contains eggs they’re just basically covering their basis by telling people ok we do produce eggs in the same factory so if it says may contain eggs or may contain milk you’re still good to go unless you are actually allergic I still purchase things for example this thing says may contain eggs but it doesn’t actually contain eggs so to me that’s vegan lasagna noodles oven ready I love lasagna I love making lasagna it’s one of my favorite things to make especially for non vegans because it always forgetting tastes so good so I do have a recipe on this I seriously I need to do another lasagna recipe video because I feel like there’s so many ways to make a delicious vegan lasagna we also have some whole-grain spaghetti so yeah pasta bread usually vegan friendly ok right guys I bought some sushi rice because I wanted to make sushi so rice is very different depending on the brand that you buy depending on the kind this is sushi rice it’s basically like Japanese rice Japanese or Korean rice is gonna be stickier and that’s the kind of rice I like so yeah this is gonna be white rice I normally like to just eat brown rice but for sushi white rice is good noodles yay this is so convenient this one comes in a four pack which makes me very happy oh da noodles are so convenient especially this kind that is already precooked it literally takes like not even 2 minutes to cook up it’s cheap it’s super quick it’s so good oh my god I love you don’t know so much honestly this is like the cheap lazy vegan it’s a staple it’s really good to have especially for the days when you get lazy I always like to prepare for those days when I don’t want to cook when I just want something really quick and new da noodles are gonna be great okay rice is wonderful but it takes a long time to cook ludo noodles not so much literally you can make a meal in less than 10 minutes with uno noodles all right so this is kind of miscellaneous I’m just gonna show you guys I got two things of nori sheets these are roasted seaweed sheets this is great for sushi guys so if you want to make sushi rolls nori sheets are so delicious and they’re really really great you can also like cut them up into like little pieces and just put them on top of your rice stuff like that all right let’s move on this way I’ve got tofu you guys know I love tofu my store was out of extra firm tofu I don’t know why or the brand that I normally use so this one is medium firm tofu I have a full video where I talk about tofu so I’m gonna link that down below if you guys are interested in everything there is to know or at least everything that I know about tofu I’m not like a tofu genius but I love tofu so much so yeah this is my laughs and if you buy these most of the time these packages as long as you don’t open them they do last a really long time in the fridge so just check the expiration date like this one expires end of January so I still have like almost a month to consume this once you open it up though it only lasts like a few days in the fridge so that’s one source of vegan protein a lot of people wonder about the in protein so let me go through my other sources of vegan protein here so we’ve got different kinds of beans and lentils so we’ve got black beans we have kidney beans and we also have green lentils these are canned which means they are just ready to eat or can literally just open them up and eat it okay so I love having canned beans and lentils in stock so that again for those days when I don’t feel like doing anything and I don’t feel like cooking and I just want a meal in 10 I have it just ready to go but sometimes you have extra time and that’s why dry beans come in handy these are dry chickpeas you can’t eat these okay these are dry you have to cook them first so first you want to soak it for about eight hours if not longer and then you cook it on the pot with tons of water let it come to a boil and then once it comes to a boil you want to turn that down to a simmer and let it simmer for like almost an hour or until they are really really soft okay so they’re gonna like double in size compared to what you can see here the reason why I want both is because generally dry beans tend to be cheaper so if you’re looking to save money or if you eat a lot of beans it’s actually really good to have dry beans that you cook in bulk and you can actually freeze them I would portion them out and freeze them that’s what I do quite often so that whenever I’m ready to eat them it’s pretty much like having canned means I’m ready to eat them take them out heat them up and you’re ready to go but sometimes I don’t have cooked beans already in the freezer okay because my life ain’t always together and that is why can’t beans come in handy these are essentials guys tofu and beans lentils these are my protein essentials love these protein sources absolutely necessary I would throw them into pretty much every single meal that I have nuts and seeds as well which I have enough of in my pantry which is why I didn’t I didn’t buy any new ones here but yeah really really really essential ingredients right here whoo Wow my my arm hurts geez okay let’s go through these so diced tomatoes that’s all in French guys okay diced tomatoes and tomato sauce I love having some form of canned tomato either dice or tomato sauce this is so handy really really good for so many different types of dishes chili if you want to make a pasta sauce if you want to make I don’t know anything diced tomatoes tomato sauce I think are really really great ingredients to have I use them so often so really good all right now let’s move on to this little area here let’s go through the back almond milk avi any sort of non-dairy milk really really good to have you’re in your fridge and you can also get ones that you don’t even need to refrigerate so if you just want to keep them in your pantry until you are ready to have it then that’s also good yeah mmm look I have two frozen things here I love frozen veggies fruit these are really really great to have for you know smoothies for example we’ve got four berry blend I’m gonna use these for a smoothie really really really good to have especially berries because I feel like fresh berries go bad really quickly so it’s good to have frozen ones to throw into smoothies and of course frozen veggies are also a must really good to have around especially for those lazy days what’d I tell you just always prepare for a rainy day okay quite often again produce goes bad really quickly and maybe you’re busy maybe you don’t go grocery shopping very often maybe you just don’t find yourself cooking enough for you to have fresh produce in your fridge all the time frozen veggies are such an essential even if you do have fresh produce most of the time which I normally do but sometimes you know maybe I haven’t had time to go grocery shopping frozen veggies and they still have nutritional benefits some people say that frozen veggies are actually more nutritious because they are frozen at that peak time when they are when the veggies are nutritious I don’t know if that is true but I’ll believe it right here we have hummus really really great vegan essential this one’s roasted pine nut hummus hummus is just awesome you don’t just have to use it as a dip you can use it as a spread you can even use it as like a pasta sauce if you’re super lazy you can just take the dough hummus some pasta dough and just mix it together maybe make like a pasta salad really really really good sauces let’s get on with the sauces I have tons of other sauces in my fridge I’ll show you guys if I have time but this might be a really long video already so I don’t know one thing to note is that so many sauces dressings things like that are vegan friendly by nature honestly you can get so many different kinds of sauces and spices and all of that stuff here we go we’ve got pasta sauce I always like to have a jar of pasta sauce just ready again for a rainy day if I’m feeling super lazy literally it’s so easy to just cook up a bit of pasta and then throw in a bit of sauce maybe throw in some beans some lentils and maybe throw in some veggies and here we go we’ve got a full-on meal that’s ready in like ten minutes so this one is sweet basil marinara do remember to check the ingredients list for your pasta sauces sometimes they do contain some milk or some ingredients that you might not want just make sure you just peak that ingredients list after a while of being vegan you’ll be able to look at ingredients list really quickly you just have this like really quick eye to look for milk ingredients or eggs or stuff like that so yeah pasta sauce always like to have in my pantry we also have some Frank’s Red Hot Sauce this is so good I’m gonna make cauliflower wings with this I love spicy sauce I love Frank’s hot sauce is so good and I also bought some balsamic vinegar this is just so I can use that as a dressing or maybe I’ll make something like other sauces out of it but yeah it’s good to have around and we also have some sweet chili sauce I don’t know if you guys have tried sweet chili sauce but it’s so yummy it’s so good on so many different things I can sometimes use it as a dressing or even to dip my veggies oh my gosh it’s so yummy I love it so much I also have ketchup body a low-sodium ketchup all right I guess now we can go through the produce section now obviously produce is all vegan which is great I’m just gonna show you guys what I bought I got some blueberries I just wanted some fruit I don’t eat enough fruit and I think one of the reasons is because I hate washing peeling fruit so blueberries are easy to eat so love them antioxidants hi laughs I got some broccoli this is organic it was on special I normally wouldn’t buy organic but hi we also got some avocado I got two avocados I think these are already right throw them in the fridge I don’t need to explain avocados do I you guys know how great avocados are already we got some spinach spinach is like my must-have green I love throwing spinach into smoothies I love stir-fried spinach I love just finish everything and you can freeze spinach as well if it’s starting to I don’t know if it’s in the fridge for a while and you’re not having it just freeze it and you can actually use that in smoothies so that’s what I do quite often which is what which is what I recommend I got two things of King oyster mushrooms and I got two because it was on like two for something and I love King oyster mushrooms oh they’re so good they just have a really good texture I don’t know something about the chew and I just love mushrooms love mushrooms so much speaking of mushrooms we got more we just got some white mushrooms here self-explanatory green onion self-explanatory let’s move on here I got some ginger I thought I would throw some ginger into some smoothies and also I love throwing ginger into like a stir-fry it’s so yummy so that’s what I got that and we also have some garlic AVI onion avi mushroom we went through that and then here we’ve got a couple of Chinese vegetables we’ve got baby bok choy which I love so much I don’t know what it is about baby bok choy or bok choy in general it’s so good pick some veggies that you really like and stick to those because you don’t have to you force yourself to eat you know stuff that you don’t like unless you don’t like any vegetable then you might want to work on it next I bought this Chinese broccoli I’ve never actually cooked this so I’m not really sure what’s gonna go down but I’m pretty excited about it and I assume I have to cook it with a lot of oil and water but probably need to google it I want to cook it probably with some garlic and I just feel like it’s gonna be delicious because I don’t know I’ve had this in Chinese restaurants and it’s good it’s yummy and I also caught it because it was 30% off and last but not least I got some cucumber I love cucumbers they’re so refreshing they’re so easy to eat so convenient I always feel so clean when I eat cucumber it’s so good I’m gonna probably eat some with hummus very soon mm-hmm okay and there we have it guys oh my gosh looks like a lot of food right alright guys so that was my grocery haul and this entire thing which is going to last me a really long time has a lot of staples this cost me a hundred and fifteen dollars and twenty five cents Canadian so that right now is the equivalent of about $85 u.s. I’m not sure what it is in pounds I will calculate that I mean to be fair the Canadian dollar isn’t doing that well at the moment it’s actually pretty bad but yeah this is 115 Canadian dollars for all of this food which i think is really good especially considering I got some major staples here that are going to last me along time for example the rice we’ve got who don’t noodles we’ve got you know lots of beans frozen veggies we got sauces that are gonna last me a long time so it’s really really affordable guys it does not have to be expensive following a vegan diet okay it’s not like I was even trying really hard to be super frugal either so I was just kind of like shopping for things I needed and it just turned out to be you know 115 dollars and again it seems like a lot of money 115 dollars but think about how much food I can make with all of this I can already think of so many different meals I can make with all of this food these are some essentials I hope you guys found this video helpful or you know educational or entertaining I don’t know if you did don’t forget to give it a big thumbs up there you go alright so that was my vegan grocery haul its lush guide of course this is not the end-all be-all I eat a lot of other things as well these are just some basic things that I do like to buy on a regular basis if you guys want to see kind of like a pantry slash fridge tour let me know because I can do one of those as well some people requested that so I can show you guys kind of what’s already in my pantry so that you can you know compiled that information along with this information and kind of figure out all the things they can eat on a vegan lifestyle again I’ve lost the recipes on here on my youtube channel but yeah I wish you the best of luck I have done many videos before that are kind of catered toward beginner vegans and people that are interested in a vegan lifestyle so I’ll link some of those videos down below so you guys can get some more information and more resources from me I hope you guys enjoyed this video if you did enjoy it or found it helpful please give it a big thumbs up and of course if you’re new to cheap lazy vegan don’t forget to subscribe for more vegan inspiration and I will see you guys in my next video bye
