RECIPES:

—– BREAKFAST —–
1. Stovetop Oats
Combine 3/4 cup rolled oats and 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk in a small pot over high heat. When boiling, reduce heat to low and let simmer, stirring occasionally and watching to make sure it doesn’t boil over. Once thick, stir in 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 mashed banana. Remove from heat and serve with any toppings. My favourites are peanut butter, strawberries and banana.

2. Baked Oatmeal
Combine 1/2 cup oats, 1 mashed banana, cinnamon (optional), 1 tsp baking powder, and 1/2 cup almond milk. Place in a mini ramekin or other oven safe dish and bake for 25 minutes at 350F. Add any desired toppings, my favourites are strawberries and peanut butter with almond milk.

—– LUNCH —–
1. Lettuce Wraps
Take a piece of Romaine Lettuce (or any lettuce with a large, flexible leaf) and fill it with brown rice/quinoa, smoked tofu/veggie beef cooked in hoisin sauce, sautéed bell peppers/carrots/zucchini/or any vegetables, sautéed onions and mushrooms, avocado and salsa, nutritional yeast or vegan cheese, hot sauce, and anything else of your choice.

2. Avo-Tomato Sandwich
On two slices of bread/bagel, spread 1/2 a mashed avocado, a sprinkle of nutritional yeast and add some tomato slices. Optional things I like to add are spinach/lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, and ground flax seeds.

—– DINNER —–
1. Spaghetti and “Meat” Balls
Boil spaghetti pasta according to package instructions and set aside.
In a pot, steam chopped broccoli until tender. Saute mushrooms, onions, and any other desired vegetables until cooked. Separately bake/saute bought “meat” balls.
Optionally, you can bring saute all of this together in a large skillet with the tomato sauce to make a more uniform “meat” sauce, or it can just be dished into a bowl with the spaghetti with sauce over top.

2. Pesto Pasta
In a dry skillet over medium-high heat, toast 1/2 cup of pine nuts until golden brown. Set aside. In a food processor, process two bunches of cilantro and 4 cloves of garlic. Once mixed, add in your toasted pine nuts, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tbsp lemon juice, optional smoked paprika, and process until smooth. If it’s too dry, add in some olive oil or water until it reaches your desired consistency.
I love putting this over pasta (whole wheat, rice or zoodles) with avocado and nutritional yeast.

3. Veggie Burgers
Prepare patty’s according to package instructions, or make your own.
I like to eat mine on a toasted whole wheat bun with hummus, avocado, tomato, any other veggies (spinach, lettuce, sprouts, mushrooms, etc), and nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor.

4. Spring Rolls
Prepare angel hair or fettuccine rice noodles as per package instructions. Chop up bell pepper, cilantro, avocado, cucumber, mushrooms, smoked tofu, bean shoots, and shred some carrots. Soak your rice paper wrap in lukewarm water for about 10 seconds until soft, then fill with any fillings of your choice. Dip into peanut sauce.
Peanut Sauce Recipe:
In a food processor, process 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, 1/4 cup tamari (soy sauce), 1/4 cup water, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon hot sauce, 1 teaspoon sugar or other natural sweetener until smooth. Be sparse with soy sauce as it can be quite salty.
An alt. spring roll recipe –

5. Chickpea Omelet
Blend or hand mix 2/3 cup water, 1/3 cup chickpea flour, 1 tbsp ground flax seed, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast, 1/8 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Pour it over a greased skillet over medium-high heat. Let it cook like you would a normal omelet, flipping when the edges are firm and there are bubbles. Once the other side is cooked, put it on a plate and fold over any fillings. I fill it with sauteed veggies (mushrooms, spinach, bell pepper and zucchini) and sprinkle on nutritional yeast.

Urban Farming with The Dervaes family

Drivers whizzing past on the 210 freeway through Pasadena have no idea that a stone’s throw away from the fast lane is a lush but tiny Eden a 4,000 square foot farm it not only feeds a family but revolutionizes the idea of what can be done in a very unlikely place the middle of a city this is city living but I bought the country to the city uh-huh rather than have to go out to the country I just imported it 63 year old Jules duvets started this backyard farm ten years ago it’s a deliberate throwback to the story days of self-reliant rural America Jules and his children grow almost all the food they need and everyone pitches in five pounds of grapefruit his daughters a nice we have another guy coming to pick up Andrew dan yeah are you done and his son Justin their produce is organic and their animals are well friendlier than average to say hi say hi we have a a chicken straw ducks and to dos the ducks and chickens lay thousands of eggs a year and keep the bugs in check they really made the dynamics of Elvin homestead much more sustainable sustainable and dense on their 4,000 square feet they raised 400 varieties of vegetables fruits and edible flowers 6,000 pounds a year enough to feed themselves with plenty left over and with the current passion at high-end restaurants for local pesticide free produce chefs are literally beating a path to their door no good are you doing Oh wonderful soil she’s so what are you gonna do the sorrel hmm I’m gonna use it to make a really nice sound relish with uh cucumber for our salmon dish the family makes about $20,000 a year from their front porch sales they use it to buy the crops they can’t grow like wheat rice notes I would say at the beginning I didn’t really believe I could do it I had some doubts because I come to kept again this place is too small there’s no way that we’re going to be able to feed ourselves plus I never thought we could even grow the vegetables for the for the market so how did this experiment in independent living begin it all began 10 years ago when Jules bought some taco shells for dinner he learned too late that the shells were being recalled because they had been made by mistake with genetically modified corn when I thought about putting this food in my children smile tonight and they were depending on me to give them good stuff I mean they’ll take whatever their parent any child would take what a parent hands them they’ll say this comes from my mom or dad and I couldn’t afford to be in that position of giving him bad stuff now a decade later this radical foodie has succeeded in going off the grid he calls his lifestyle the path to freedom and what to family think of that whole approach they thought it was strange they thought it was they thought it was my daughter wouldn’t come out of the front yard and visit with her friends because they said what’s what’s up with your dad they wanted to know well as go one because I was did making some radical changes here there Gervaise have no ugly commute they avoid office politics and we’ll never get fired but their jobs are way more than nine-to-five I need I need to help all the help I can get and it’s my family that like in the old days the farmer farmers family made the difference there are no microwave ovens in this kitchen and no Cuisinarts either we have gizmos but they’re just hand power what little electricity they use is generated by these solar panels how much is your electricity bill well it’s running about the highest twelve dollars a month 12 dollars a month for everything here yeah they spend even less on gas this is their biodiesel brewing station so this is just new grease from restaurants yeah they use it defiling rings french fries there anything you would fry and you get it free yeah free and delivered on our doorstep the gasoline station is self-serve it hasn’t always been easy justin remembers the year that frost wiped out a crop another year it was a destructive insect and recently they’ve noticed a new challenge climate change we call it the forefront of global weirding because we’ve been gardening for so long you can sense things are off we have this June bug that comes out it’s called June so it’s supposed to come out in June but comes out in July in August and you know September so something’s definitely off the other challenge is water Southern California skies don’t deliver enough of it so Jules keeps the water bill down with this ancient form of irrigation that’s a clay pot irrigation but the Bears under there it’s buried usually up to the throat here and then all you do is fill it up and the water weeps through the portal and through the clay and you get the water where the plant stated at the root zone plants to take the water as needed so just so simple it’s 5:00 o’clock time the time when it all pays off there’s going to be insider Elsa the derv A’s are the ultimate locavores their food travelled a whole hundred feet from the field to the table they all say they love urban homesteading and can’t imagine living a typical consumer-driven life at the end of the day some not so back to nature activity visits to their web sites have grown dramatically they get about six million hits a month from others interested in this grow it yourself revolution we’re all in the same boat on the same planet and there are people now asking deep questions about the future of the planet and they’re willing to do this they’re willing to take a risk it’s a risk that has paid off for Jewel’s and is blazing a trail for others I’m Val Zavala

Vegan Gluten-Free Flatbread // oil-free and hclf

Oh my goodness whoever’s day we’ve had in months okay so anyways today’s recipe is kind of like a remake of a recipe did so long ago it was my brown rice flour tortillas that is actually my probably my most viewed video is that brown rice tortilla video and I’ve had some people commenting they have issues with it some people have said they have made it they like it but I have more people commenting like what can I substitute for potato starch and all these sorts of questions so I finally redone it with easier to find ingredients and it’s actually like a million times better just easier to roll out butter texture softer just all in all together butter only took me a year to do it so this is the new version the magic ingredient is basically two potato puree or potato goo or whatever you want to call it boil potatoes and water in the blender kind of makes this really weird sticky paste it would be terrible if you’re trying to make mashed potatoes but for this it’s a really great substitute for good because have that same star J stickiness to it it’s not the easy thing to clean onto your blender I will tell you that but just like let it soak it will work a few things that are important to note with this recipe one is that you want to cook them on fairly high heat and quickly so I use like probably like out of ten my burner is on about seven or eight and they only take about a minute per side to get like the bubbles and then they do a little bit of a brown spots on the side you cook them low and slow they’re just going to be really dry and not flexible at all they’re also the most flexible rafi cook them so when they’re fresh and if you stack them up the ones the middle kind of get like this steamed around they kind of like I don’t know stay really soft in the middle and that’s when they’ll be the most flexible if you want to reheat them all like I show you in the video there’s two couple of ways you can do it you can cuz I was just keeping them in the fridge after you make them and to reheat them you can either cover them in a wet paper towel and microwave them so they’ll stop they’ll be soft again and but not as Neversoft as when you first make them or you can put them in a toaster and actually toast it and you get like kind of like a crispy pita chip sort of texture this is not one of the recipes where you can leave out the tapioca starch or substitute something else it’s a really sticky gluten-free flour with a lot of binding power and it’s very necessary in this recipe another thing I want to mention is that when you boil your potatoes make sure you put a lid on them because you want to keep the water in because you’re going to use that starch and water to blend them with and the amount of water you have to add a little bit more water after they cook for blending you want it the consistency to look a lot like the one that I show in the video but that might vary depending on how big your potatoes are and how much water evaporates when you’re cooking them so that’ll be something you buy through just a little bit they’re super easy to roll out though they taste really good they’re really pretty soft I don’t roll them too thin again they’ll just kind of get dry and crispy you want to give them a little bit thicker what else so I hope the test tube works in your kitchen I’ve made it probably six times in the past two weeks just trying to get it just right and I love them I absolutely love them I haven’t made flat beds with it I’ve made rafts with them I’ve just torn about that eating them because they’re just so good and I think that’s everything I wanted to tell you so to the recipe you

Vegan Millionaires Shortbread YEAAAAAAAHH!!!

Hi, today I’m going to be showing you guys how to make vegan millionaire shortbreads I know what you’re thinking ah that sounds long it’s not it’s really easy but the one thing that you really do need for my recipe is a condensed a condensed can of soy milk a can of condensed soy milk and there are other ways of doing it which you can look up online but this is the one that I found the best for like holding its shape and you if you follow me on instagram you might have seen that I was doing it giveaway for said before you get millionaire’s shortbreads and these are the exact ones I’m gonna be giving away so if you were the winner you can see me picking my nose where they’re making them and working it in the batter quick sidenote firstly I don’t know what’s going on with my eye makeup today I cannot get it even you know people are like oh why browser sisters not twins for what what’s the thing with winged eyeliner and secondly what’s gone on here my hair started to go kind of greeny gray I’m not mad at it though I don’t mind it anyway complete side note that let’s actually get on with some cricket are we okay so let’s get started what I’ve weighed out so far is a hundred grams of caster sugar and 220 grams of plain flour in my bowl I’m going to give them a stir we’re making a shortbread base first just make sure all the sugar and all the flour is combined before you add the butter just to make sure it’s all mixed evenly really okay oh me whoops hey well annoyingly that was just off camera but I did actually flick flour all over myself now I’ve had a quick clean up after the break I’m gonna add in 125 grams of soy butter I’ve got this dairy-free pure one you can use whatever you want vital lights another good go to say 125 grams are going in here Oh oh my god 124 let’s leave it there cuz otherwise I’m gonna go over it right you do not leave this guy’s misstep and are we on camera yes you’re just gonna go in with your hands so I’ve taken off all my lovely little sparkly rings and we’re just gonna start combining this bit is really fun it’s kind of it feels kind of gross but also lush so I’ve lined my Tim and this bit is really important so don’t try to get away without doing it which is something that I probably would have done back in the day before I was a genius I’ve just put parchment paper in and these sides have got a bit more of the soy butter just spread around it I promise you you are not getting this guy out of the tin if you don’t mind it like I said be sensible and do it got my dough here look at that for buttery biscuit base I’m just gonna press it in and then we’re gonna work it into all of the corners so it’s nice and even and super flat and I’m probably going to fast forward this bit because I doubt you want to be doing this for 10 minutes right it’s all pushed into the corners nice and evenly the neater you can get it the nicer it’s going to work when you take it out I’ve pricked it with a fork to ensure an even think as Mary berry would say and I’m going to put it in the other at the moment I’m on gas mark 6 so I think about between 180 200 200 might be to got 180 in a fan of them and I think it’s going to go in for about 15 minutes but I’ll let you know cuz sometimes everyone’s oven is different everyone’s having gets hot then of the Robins just make sure it’s in the middle of the oven so that one side doesn’t get more cooked than the other okay let’s do this right the shortbread still in the oven don’t start heating the caramel until the shortbreads out and quite cool I’m just going to show you basically the start of the caramel so in here I’ve got half my tin of condensed soy milk which I threw away this is the brand that I had set on the camera yes it is so yeah so I’ve got half a can of that I’m doing this recipe in half quantities because I made it the other day so I only had one pan just double it if you want to make a big batch but yeah half of that went into here and then I put in a tablespoon of golden syrup and then 50 grams of brown sugar and I’m just gonna mix it all together before I put it on the heat I just wanted to show you what it looks like and then I’ll show you again when I’m heating it and what it looks like then so my shortbread base is out I think it was in for about 20 minutes it’s nice and golden oh my god I can smell it smells so good so now that’s how I’ve started to put the heat on on the old caramel should probably move the camera but it’s just starting to melt so I’ve got it on a really low heat and it’s probably going to take about five six minutes to be the consistency that I want it to but basically you want all the sugar to have melted all the butter to have melted and it will start to thicken up just keep you need to stay in the room with it so don’t go off and go to the toilet or anything like that and yeah I’ll show you what it looks like when it’s done oh hey I’m so annoyed right it is pretty much at the consistency that I want now you can see how much it’s not even on the camera yeah how much it’s thickened up but it’s still a pourable which is great because once it starts to set it’s really hard to spread evenly so I’m gonna pour it on in a sec alright guys we’re going in oh my god make sure you get every single last bit this is actually a great tip that I’m about to share with you that I haven’t done but I’ve just thought of have a pan up our pan a oh my god look at that I’m gonna move it around a bit in a sec fill in all the little gaps isn’t gonna be so great what I was gonna say is have a sink of hot water ready because once it’s set onto your pan you’re gonna be right that’s that bit done now we just need to leave it to cool yeah right now we are going to make the top at the chocolate top the caramel isn’t completely set but it is hard to the touch still a bit warm though and this is perfect for pouring it on because it’s not going to mix it and it’s still at the top it’s gonna sit on top I am making my chocolate for those of you again who follow me on instagram you’ll see that quite often I post little handmade chocolates this is how I make them and I just really like to do it it’s basically just coconut oil golden syrup or agave if you want to be sugar free but if you want to be sugar free don’t do this recipe because you’re a heart attack and cocoa powder ah basically you just combine like this quarter cup of melted coconut oil with a quarter cup of cocoa powder make sure it’s all in there you can’t just use store-bought chocolate if you can’t bother to do this thing or if you can’t get a hold of coconut oil and mix it together it’s so chocolatey and so like rich and it just sets in the fridge when the coconut oil goes hard I just really like making it but like I said buy your own from just make sure it’s vegan dark chocolate and you can just Mouse it with a tiny bit of soy cream or even a splash of soy milk just to make it a bit more ganache like so it cuts nicely and doesn’t shatter right so that’s the chocolatey syrup but if you eat it like this it will taste disgusting because it will be so bitter so we’re gonna add some golden syrup and I’m putting in about a tablespoon I don’t want this to be too sweet because the whole thing in itself super-sweet so again combiner and if you’re making if you’re going to use this to make little chocolates this is the stage as you can see it’s getting like really glossy and beautiful this is the stage when you just pour it into the little molds to make sure it’s all whipped up if you don’t mix it properly it has a habit of separating and all the sweet stuff goes at the bottom and then you get a very bitter cocoa on top it’s actually not that bad because it kind of tastes a bit like a truffle but I don’t want that for this because I’ve got a post them as well so these need to hold up in the post okay now I’m going to pour it on there will be a link below to a CD available with one of my singing on it they went really I did not know by man my mum okay that’s make sure you’ve got all of it you don’t have to rush massively with this part because the coconut oil doesn’t really satin till it’s gotten pretty cold in the fridge they pour it on just drizzle it around make sure that all of the caramel is covered oh my god there it is now it’s gonna go back in the fridge to set when it’s kind of half there I’m going to put some decorations on the top if you put them on now they’ll literally just disappear free the chocolate look in that is how you make raw vegan chocolate by the way so I’m gonna put it in the freezer because I want it to hurry up but if you’ve got all day put it in the fridge so that’s it they’re done it was a sip as that thank you so much for watching and as always if you make any take a picture and tag me on Instagram or Twitter or whatever you want to do just let me know because I love to see you guys making my stuff thanks again bye

The Food Matrix – 101 Reasons to Go Vegan

Good evening and thank you for coming my name is James and I’m the humanities you cater for the animal rights foundation of Florida now I’m typically giving this presentation to a high school classroom so my audience is a little different and I say you won’t find out we’ll find out so I pretty much know my audience yeah I can pretty much guarantee that 99% of the kids in the class are eating meat dairy and eggs and there might be one or two kids who are vegetarian but it’s a very rare occasion where you’ll get a kid who is vegan um when I speak to adults it’s a little different you know I don’t quite know my audience as well so I want to get to know you so here’s what I want everybody to do I want everybody to please stand up all right now if you are vegan meaning you choose not be any meat of the animal no flesh of the animal no cows no chickens no pigs no turkey and no fish alright surprise surprise a fish is not a vegetable no dairy no cow’s milk no cow cheese no cow butter no cow ice cream and no eggs please have a seat so if you are vegan please have a seat okay now for the rest of you you’ll have to remain standing for the rest of the presentation everybody everybody have a seat there’s another benefit of talking to high school kids and that’s they’re not afraid to participate in the presentation they’ll say whatever is on their mind whether I like it or not but with adults it’s a little bit harder it’s like pulling teeth now this presentation is designed to be interactive meaning I want you to actually participate I want you to engage and you think about the presentation it’s like a row shark test and I show you a picture and you tell me what you see so the maturity level is the same as high school students it’s a mushroom people all right how many of you have ever seen the movie The Matrix okay so move more than half of us sorry for those who haven’t seen the movie The Matrix there’s a scene the very beginning of the film where the main character is presented with two pills one blue and one red and he has to make a choice if you choose the blue pill he’ll fall asleep and when he wakes up everything will be exactly the way it’s always been if you choose the red pill he’ll finally learn the truth and I’m here today to give you that red pill but let me make this very clear to you I’m not here to tell you what to do not here to tell you how to think how to feel and I’m certainly not here to tell you what to eat I’m simply here to provide you with information now what you do with that information is solely up to you so what does the matrix look like let me show you now despite what you might be thinking these two circles are not equal I repeat these two circles are not equal one is in fact larger than the other what I need you to do is determine which one that is so please raise your hand if you believe the blue circle is larger than the red alright please raise your hand if you believe the red circle is larger than the blue all right very good now before I said anything about these two circles what was your first instinct equal right because they look equal the reason why they look equal is because in fact they are equal these two circles are identical yet I got just about every one of you to raise your hand and say that they’re not so what do we learn but you can be manipulated like that to believe in something that goes against your natural instincts just just imagine just imagine as a child you’re taught that the blue circle is larger than the red if you say it enough times you convince yourself that’s the truth if you’re told the lie enough times it becomes part of your reality and if enough people are taught that lie that the blue circle is larger than the red well now it becomes part of the culture and if that culture then passes that misinformation along to the next generation will now become tradition and what we have to remember is that just because we have a tradition doesn’t mean it’s morally acceptable tradition and morality are not always the same I mean can you think of any traditions that we once had in the United States of America that we no longer have that today we think back and that was immoral slavery right less than 200 years ago and that was a tradition so the traditions we have today doesn’t necessarily mean morally acceptable and as we evolved as a culture so do our traditions now the matrix is a story it’s a story when told enough times to enough people it becomes part of that culture it becomes the tradition and this story is being told over and over every day in fact if you believe the image on the carton is where you’re getting your milk from you’re deceiving yourself this is a fantasy only exist in your head it’s a blue pill fed to you by the industry to get you to buy their product this is the matrix the lie we tell ourselves about where our food is coming from the reality is far more disturbing 90 to 95 percent of the milk the meat and the eggs that we consume in the United States are coming from these conditions this is called factory farming this is what you take thousands of hens pigs and cows you can find them in two warehouses in fact every year in the United States ten billion right ten billion cows pigs and chickens are being slaughtered for food so what that works out to be is that every second in the United States 300 animals are killed just like that so 300 600 900 1200 by the time I’m done talking today there’ll be over a million animals that have been slaughtered and most of us don’t even blink an eye and how is it possible that in the United States of America we can kill we can slaughter 300 animals every second and not question that because of the story we’ve been told the story justifies the action if you say it enough times you actually convince yourself that’s the truth how many of you were taught as a child you need to eat meat to get protein I know I was how many of you were taught you need to drink cow’s milk to get strong bones not dog milk not chimpanzee milk not elephant milk not rhino milk not hippo milk not Tiger milk not lion milk not giraffe milk not elephant milk did I say that already I think you get the point not even our own mother’s milk we need to drink cow’s milk to get strong bones the absurdity of drinking the milk from any other species and any other being besides our own mother when it’s said enough times loses its absurdness so all we’re going to do today is find out if the matrix is telling the truth now the first thing we’ve been taught is that our diet is natural and we eat meat dairy and eggs so therefore it must be natural so let’s find out you have two images on the wall all right and remember the road shock test you have two images on the wall I want you to tell me all the thoughts that come to mind when you see the image on the left and don’t be afraid to scream out nobody’s going to get sent to the principal what do you see fresh young sweet right if I came into the room with a basket of strawberries that looked just like that organic and I put him on the chair right here now what would be your thoughts okay the same thoughts what would you think if one of us got up and started chewing on the strawberries maybe we’d want to join it if I come into the room with the baskets strawberries how many of your mouth starts to salivate your mouth starts the water I take a strawberry and I put it under your nose what do you smell if I take a knife and I slice that strawberry in half and put that under your nose now what do you smell those how all the sensations remain the same you see a strawberry that looks like a strawberry you smell a strawberry and it smells like a strawberry and you take a bite out of a strawberry and surprise surprise it tastes like a strawberry exactly it’s a strawberry but what thoughts come to mind when you see the image on the right cute it’s kind of a rigged audience so you’re in a vegan restaurant but you know when I go to a classroom you know half the response you’ll get half the kids who see all cute animal pig Wilbert babe so half the class will see an animal and the other half the class will see bacon sausage ham pigs feet pork and hotdogs they’ll see a food it’s one of the other you either seeing an animal or you’re seeing food now what would happen if I took one of the pigs living brought them into the room right here and put them put them right in front of you does that change it now what do we see and I mean what would we think if one of if one of us got up and starts chewing on the pig not very normal if I come into the room with a pig under my arm how many of your mouth starts to salivate right I take a pig and I put it into your nose what do you smell smell Pig just like if it took a dog and put on your nose smell dog a cat you smell cat I took a knife and I sliced that pig in half and put that under your nose now what do you smell it’s not a stench of death you smell rotting corpse bacteria decomposing flesh you see there’s a process involved and I’m here today to show you that process of how you convert this animal into this product why should it why should it be kept a secret why should we not know what we’re participating in and what we’re putting in our now let’s make the situation slightly more realistic if I were to put a pig on this side of the room living in a butcher’s knife on side on side of that room I mean how many people would be willing to pick up the knife and take the life of that animal it’s very rare right and if somebody did that that’s all right but how many people in this room would try to stop that person from doing that right would we try that of course that’s compassion man is the greatest quality of the human race there’s no other species on this planet that has that level of compassion to extend to all living beings but if you would stop somebody from killing a pig in front of you and then go home and have this for breakfast let’s call hypocrisy just because it comes with a nice neat package all dressed up in your supermarket just because you didn’t take the knife and shove it through their jugular just because you can get blood on your clothes and just because you didn’t hear their screams doesn’t mean you didn’t participate in the killing every time we buy this product we are supporting somebody else doing what we ourselves wouldn’t want to do when we ourselves wouldn’t want to see and what we ourselves wouldn’t want to hear now if you still see bacon sauce lehand when I bring a pig into the room what happens when I change it to one sec so so like not there we go all right all right it’s the common response now I’ve never heard anybody say YUM nobody ever sees dog feed hotdogs so why not why don’t we see a food but we’ve we’ve been accustomed to view this animal as our pet I mean how many of you have a dog or a cat right how many of you have a pig not so much all right so but there are other cultures there are other cultures again the cultural story for us is this is your pet in another culture certain parts of the world they eat cats and dogs that’s their culture that’s their story they’ve been told and how do you feel about that a lot of people think it’s disgusting right I imagine every one of you probably thinks it’s disgusting your dog why would it be disgusting to eat this animal and not disgusting to eat this animal why would it be wrong to eat this animal and right to eat this animal and most importantly why would it be wrong to kill this animal and right to kill this animal it’s culture it’s the story it’s the matrix that we’ve been told one culture sees this as a pet this is a food and though the culture might see this as a pet and this is a food another culture might see in both is food certain parts of India the cow is sacred they would never think about eating a cow in certain parts of India is that wrong is that unnatural that’s just the story they’ve been told but culture is just a story that’s all it is it’s just make-believe when I’m concerned with is what is natural to the human species because every culture has a different story but you take somebody from Asia Africa South America North America Europe and we’re all the same species we’re all human beings so let’s take a three Road from any country in the world and you put that three out in a room and you line up five animals in front of that three-year-old a pig a dog a cow a cat and a chicken you think the thrill is going to know which one to eat and which one to pet what’s the three are most likely going to do or try to do play with them all it’s going to try to play with them all the three oh it has to be taught no no no no don’t play with it eat him play with him pet him that’s what we were taught we didn’t choose our diet our diet is a learned behavior we were raised to perceive this animal as your pet and this animal is your food but that’s not the natural perception the natural is that there all of our our companions so our parents chose our diet based upon the cultural story and if you have children you base their diet on the cultural story being told which is the same story now let me give you another example if you take a baby and you put a baby in a crib and you put on the light out of the right-side of baby chick and on the left side an apple which one do you think the baby is going to try to play with and which one you think the baby is going to try to eat most likely I put the inanimate object in this case the Apple in his or her mouth and if the baby you know most likely will be piqued by the interest of the thing moving in this case the thing being actually a living being in the chick now if the baby tries to eat the chick what’s the chicken ER they’re just going to run away or peck at him now if you walked into a room with the baby in the crib playing with an apple and chewing on the head of a live chick what do you think that baby like demon baby you’re gonna let me allow that you allow that demon baby to play with your baby set up a playdate probably not so if it’s not alright for a baby to cause harm to an animal even when they don’t know any better why is it become more acceptable as we get older when we do know the difference between an apple and a baby chick the question is do we find it acceptable to cause harm to an animal let’s find out if you don’t walk outside right now and you saw somebody taking a baseball bat to a a dog’s head what would you do you you take action at the very least you’d call the police because you recognize that as a violation of this animal’s right to be free from harm we’re all given that right at birth every animal on this planet whether it’s a mammal whether it’s an amphibian whether it’s a bird a reptile of fish and insect we’re all Earthlings human beings as well we are all earthlings and what do all Earthlings have in common two things we all want to live we all desire to live that is what it creates the Equality in all of us we all want to live and the second thing is we all avoid pain those two things make us equal from the largest land animal on earth the elephant to the smallest the insect the and everything in between from the dog the pig to the human being we all desire to live and we all avoid pain now if you were to walk outside right now and you saw somebody taking a baseball bat to a pig’s head with your emotional response not be the exact same thing of course because the question for you is what’s the difference what’s the difference between the two right is there a difference you might think one is cuter than the other but that says more about you than anything about these two animals a lot of kids will say well the nose looks different I say they go but they both got a nose to smell some kids will say well he’s got hooves and he’s got paws I say that both got feet to walk and run some kids say well his ears are going up and here’s the ears of flappy they’ve both got two ears to hear they both got two eyes to see they’ve both got a heart to beat and a mind to think and the reason why we would take action for both of them is because we recognize the equality between them and not the difference any difference is insignificant the similarities though are striking we know they’re equal yet every time we sit down for a meal we create that separation we create that inequality it’s just like we knew the two circles where you go red and blue but all it takes is somebody to tell you a story now what we most importantly recognize is that all animals have feelings but how do we know and how do we really know how do we even know that humans are feelings well I mean love these feelings what’s most important to you happiness right how do you know if somebody’s happy if I said to you right now is the happiest moment in my life when you believe me hopefully not no offense so how are you going to tell somebody’s happy they’re smiling they’re laugh and I can take somebody in in this room who doesn’t speak your language but you can tell how they’re they’re feeling by their expressions the sounds doesn’t have to do with a language though what about other animals will they wag their tail they bark they jump up and down they play with each other they lick so all these are signs of how they feel what about pain though if I said to you right now my right hand is killing me would you believe me having given you any silent it might though it might be killing me there’s only one person in this room who knows it’s actually killing me that’s me of course I say well let’s say I was to trip over my feet here and now my head against the side of this table start bleeding profusely out of my head and I’m screaming on the ground when you believe them in pain of course I’m showing the signs here’s a test you take your hand you put over a flame what happens burns right what’s your reaction pull back and scream you take a dog’s paw put it over a flame what’s his reaction same thing pull back and scream you take a pig’s leg put it over a flame same reaction you take a dog a pig a cow a chicken a goat a doc a horse a rat a mouse any animal that’s living put a body part of the flame they all have the same reaction you take a fish out of water and what’s their reaction flop it around why I can’t breathe you want to know what it feels like to be a fish out of water have you have your loved one put your put your head under water and not let go I really wouldn’t your loved one know they’re doing that that’s what it feels like of course fish have feelings they’re not they’re not vegetables if you take a vegetable you take a plant you take a strawberry and you put it over a flame and what happens else doesn’t have feet to run away doesn’t have a mouth to scream and nose to smell eyes to see ears to hear a heart to beat and a mind to think and a lot of kids will like to give this one before you say well plants have feelings don’t have a nervous system they don’t have a nervous system without a nervous system they can’t feel pain and happiness the way that animals and humans can so the question is when did we learn this when did we learn that animals have feelings hopefully this isn’t the first day that you learn this right when you younger right and how do you learn it maybe you had a cat or dog all you have to do is go outside and just experience any of the animals outside and they run from you it means they’re scared if they come up to you probably have food or something they want it so we understand this through the experiences we have in fact think about the books that were read to you as a child songs you listen to and how about the movies now think about the movies we show to our kids what all these movies have in common were they about what kind of animals farmed animals even fish are being farmed you have pigs chickens cows and fish these are all the animals we eat what’s the common theme in these movies they’re running feathers being saved no animal wants to die no animal wants to be dinner on your plate you know we root for these animals you take even the biggest pork eater in the world he’s he’s ruining for Wilbert nobody wants to see well been made into bacon at the end of that film chicken run you know we root for the chickens now I guarantee there are thousand people’s you know watching chicken run go chickens go well you need a KFC bucket of chicken wings because I’m not making that connection babe how many kids watch the movie babe fall in love with babe and then go home and a fed babe unknowingly by their parents so we’re teaching kids to love these animals but eat them too and this is the closest thing you’ll come to see their reality in the matrix in this story we’ve told ourselves and most of the times and unfortunately the closest thing will come to is in cartoon form in ways it by Pixar and Disney nonetheless but today we step outside the matrix and generally speaking when I go into a high school classroom I shall meet your meet if you haven’t seen this video if you still are eating meat dairy eggs fish take a look at a meat door again be 18 org and you can see the conditions that these animals live in now I’m not going to show you that it’s it’s a every time I show two adults they just leave he’ll come back so I’m going to show you a three-minute video again by the the same people that put on the first video Farm Sanctuary it’s three minutes if you don’t want to watch it you don’t have to but this is where 90 to 95% of the meat dairy and eggs and we’re consuming the United States are coming from and any really if you have a problem watching it but you don’t have a problem eating it you know why the disconnect there but this isn’t just about animal rights this is also a health issue and that’s the second part of the presentation we’ll we’ll talk about after the video the question is do these animals look healthy to the conditions they’re living in look healthy because if the animals don’t look healthy to you why would you want to put a sick animal into your body one last thing before I show the video a lot of people said what about what about you know milk that doesn’t seem to be any harm in raising cows for milk notice the very first scene in this video of the dairy cows and you’re going to actually see a cow giving birth and notice what happens to her calf and notice her response if I could talk to animals that are being confined in and abused now in factory farms I would say I’m sorry for what we’re doing to you I wish it wasn’t this way and I’m doing everything I know to stop it and hopefully we will be able to stop it there’s not really a whole lot of good you can say I mean you just gotta just got a hope that it can stop and hope that people will recognize the harm we’re causing and we’ll choose a different way meat milk and eggs come from real animals they don’t just come from the grocery store and these animals desire to live and they want to be free of pain and suffering and fear and on today’s farms these animals only no fear in pain at human hands they never know human kindness they never know mercy and when people buy these products they are unwittingly supporting that type of cruelty in that type of callousness the workers they have to lose part of their heart you know they have to lose they have to shut their eyes to certain aspects of what they’re doing can you imagine what it would be like to cut the throats of animals for eight hours a day it’s a bloody violent job and nobody should have to do it I don’t know what it means that you know we can participate in such cruelty without paying attention to it without caring about it without wanting to do different citizens want to assume that animals will be treated humanely that there are laws on the books to prevent cruelty and people are usually surprised to learn there aren’t if people looked at what was happening they’d be appalled most people would not support the type of abuse that has become common on factory farms the common response is why is this happening there’s a very simple explanation for why it why it does happen if you were to walk outside right now if you walk down us one and walk further down let’s say you came to a restaurant that just opened up right they were serving cats and dogs that was their main item on the menu how many of you would be out there right now protesting guarantee before the day would be over you would have that place shut down right walk down the street few blocks down you’ll come to a steak house I don’t see anybody protesting I don’t see that place being shut down why because because we’ve been taught to perceive this animal to be different from this animal and veganism is simply changing your perception that’s it that’s all it is you just change your perception we don’t have to participate in this this is not necessary a lot of people will say to me what about you know if we just created better conditions what I’m saying to you is it’s not necessary to kill an animal you don’t have to kill animals we don’t have to drink their milk enough to eat their eggs it’s just not necessary I mean people talk about humane slaughter how do you how do you slaughter something humanely and then said like when you rub their belly give them some milk and cookies and you chop their head off if I did that to one of you would everybody like well at least he died humanely he can’t do anything violent he mainly I mean if I were to actually mainly rob you humanely rape you what is what is humane theft look like is that where I come up to you and say need you to do me a favor I need you to come up here and take your wallet put it on the table right here take all the credit cards cash everything put it on the table right there pretty please with a cherry on top would that be humane theft we would everybody be like hey if I’m going to get robbed I want him to do it he’s pretty nice about it of course nobody wants to be robbed nobody wants to be killed nobody wants to be raped it’s not necessary to think about it this way how many of you do not do not own a fur coat raise your head if you don’t don’t own a fur coat yeah so I thought why why don’t you in fur coat because it’s cruel and unnecessary because it’s cruel and unnecessary what about if I said to you know what we’re going to take some mix sorry we’re gonna raise them for you no fur coat we’re going to make we’re gonna raise them but we’re gonna we’re gonna you know give them a lot of room we’re going to cage free free range organic food they’re going to do they’re going to live like kings and queens until we kill them of course you know after after a few few weeks a few months you know they won’t live to their natural age but we’re going to create humane fur would that be acceptable when you go out and buy a fur coat no because it’s not necessary a fur coat is not necessary especially here in Florida but it’s not necessary anywhere you don’t need a fur coat to survive you don’t need the animals to survive it’s not necessary it’s just sugar coating something humane slaughter so let’s take a look at what we are participating in this is a battery cage all right literally the size of a milk crate just like this you take four to six hands you put them in a crate this size and you burn their beaks off why because in these conditions they become aggressive you know be like if I took everybody in the first and second row put you in that corner and sealed it off kept you there for you know 48 hours straight guarantee you’re not going to remain friends for that long you want more space so they’re denied the ability to do what’s natural to them spread their wings forage so how does the under seat industry solve this problem cage free free range and that sounds pretty good who in this room doesn’t want to live free right this is a cage free farm in Virginia it’s just a label it’s just the label it makes us feel better about what we’re participating in but it means absolutely nothing to the animal cage free simply means you can take five hundred hens and put them in this room according to the industry that is cage free question is what is your definition of freedom does this apply now even on the you know old MacDonald’s farm that we all have stuck in our head even if you find that magical farm and good luck finding it doesn’t matter because all male chicks born in the egg industry thrown out literally why seems kind of wasteful why threw out the male chicks they don’t fit into the equation they’ll serve any purpose to the industry so we cage them we D beat them we still catch them call call it freedom though we can still debeak them in these conditions and we throw out all the mail tricks whether it’s cage free free range organic what’s in the wrong way all so that we could have this well might as well get to know what it is was an egg a lot of people think it’s a baby chick it’s not a baby chick a lot of people think it’s a fetus it’s not a fetus not an embryo just good I mean I don’t know why anybody want to eat a fetus or an embryo in the first place so what is it well it’s an unfertilized egg that doesn’t sound that bad at all all right well once a month that every woman in this room or maybe not everyone in this room sheds or at some point sheds an unfertilized egg what is that called congratulations meeting a hen period it’s the menstruation cycle discharge of a hen I’m not gonna eat a woman’s period just like why should I have a hen period there’s no need to eat any period from any living being it’s disgusting and you know we should call it what it is I mean if we were just you know at the when we were young when we were kids and you know our parents at hey you want some scrambled hen periods for breakfast then I’ll pass you know it’s like honey what is honey yeah it’s vomit it’s regurgitate throw up they throw up for themselves they take the nectar they digest it and they throw up it’s for their own cells they’re not producing it for us we call it honey because who in their right mind we want to buy a product called bee vomit and you know you put vomit next to any any product in the supermarket I guarantee it’s not going to sell let’s take a business aspect to realize that all right what about milk well even your happy cows in California hooked up the machines this is this is the way it is all right now when does a cow start producing milk during during pregnancy starts lactating during pregnancy right that’s why I’ve been to a lot of schools and I’ll get even high school teachers who will say huh I didn’t know that I just thought there was this magical cow that just produced milk okay all ho mammals produce milk when they’re pregnant and how does she become pregnant ah like we like to think they get to have sex right at the very least they get the pleasure of sex but there’s no sex in the farm the farmer is not going to wait for a cow on a bull to get it on he’s not going to set the mood like some candles put on Barry White is the business he’s running a business you know and the business is not in the welfare of the animals and producing a profit so how do you get a cow pregnant without a bull artificially inseminate them if you know artificially inseminate a woman without a consent won’t that be called I am NOT saying a woman is a cow but I am saying rape is rape I mean just look up the definition of rape exert in your power over another sexually so what’s your definition of another does that only apply to women how about men how about other beings well now she’s pregnant she gives birth what happens to her baby all male calves born in the dairy industry like the if you were here in the beginning the saving Billy all male calves born in the dairy industry are immediately taken away from their mother chained by the neck to a crate deprived of the mother’s milk fed an inefficient diet so that the body become anemic so lack of iron they will never be able to turn around will never see the light of day every glass of milk supports this industry and some people say well veal is the cruelest industry or foie-gras where they shove a pipe down a duck’s throat cruelest industry how do you how do you put pain in some kind of like okay well it’s pretty bad right here but it’s not so bad here pain is pain suffering is suffering don’t categorize it this is all suffering for these animals why do they do that to the male calves just like the male chicks they don’t fit into the equation they don’t produce the milk if you’re drinking cow’s milk the only reason is because a calf chained to a box isn’t now what about the female calves they too will be taken away from the mother why why would why would the female calf that will grow up to be like her mother which is a constant of impregnation birth and milking why would she be taken away from the mother right and we want the milk how do you think it makes a cow feel to have her baby to run away from her anybody was a parent how would you feel if you had your baby to run away from you all milk whether it’s organic meaning they don’t put in you know the hormones and the pesticides doesn’t matter all milk is stress milk it’s not something you pasteurize out of the milk it’s part of it it’s part of the it’s like it’s part of the meat part of the part of the cheese it’s part of what you’re drinking it’s stress now biologically speaking who was a cow producing milk for biologically speaking the baby not for us just like you know when your mom was pregnant with you who she producing milk for it was for you it wasn’t your daddy it wasn’t the neighbor it wasn’t the dog or the cat it was for you all mammals produce milk for their young where do all these animals get their milk from when do they stop consuming milk we’re the only species on this planet to take the milk from another animal and we’re their only species on this planet to continue drinking milk after infancy if you really don’t think it’s that weird then people like people say well you don’t you don’t eat cheese she’s just spoiled milk you don’t need you don’t need cheese you don’t drink cow’s milk that’s that’s extreme that’s crazy is it really that extreme to not take the milk from another animal I mean and if you don’t think it’s that extreme if I brought a pregnant woman into the room right now how many of you would want to drink your milk you’re not you’re not you’re not a baby it is extreme now if cow’s milk is meant for a calf if cow’s milk is biologically meant for a calf why would it be necessary for humans to drink it’s not cow’s milk is no more necessary than drinking dog milk chip milk pig milk or elephant milk the only milk you need was from your mother when you were a baby you’re not a baby anymore you’re not a cow you’re not a calf well what about if I said to you you know you’re walking in Publix Whole Foods winn-dixie maybe we’re in Dixie more likely and you come across not cow milk but chimpanzee milk that’s that’s why I said winn-dixie fentanyl fancy travellingtans I just I don’t I can’t picture well I don’t know maybe whole food but um alright so chimpanzee milk right how many of you would buy it probably not that’s disgusting why would it be disgusting to take the milk from one animal but not the disgusting to take the milk from another animal in fact if you’re drinking cow’s milk and you find chimpanzee no guide say make the switch it makes more sense why would it make more sense to take the milk of a chimpanzee hey look if you’re going to take the milk from any animal wouldn’t you want to take the milk from an animal that shares 98% of our DNA 99% I mean doesn’t that seem to be the logical conclusion I choose you that would seem the logical conclusion what about your dog if your dog was pregnant right now and i said i’ll pasteurize your dog’s milk but you want to drink it that’s disgusting that’s absurd it is disgusting and absurd no more disgusting absurd than drinking cow’s milk though in fact if you have a dog it actually makes more sense to drink dog milk the cow milk why is that well how many of you have a large dog okay how much does your dog weigh 110 Wow okay no doubt we’re gonna dog there we go all right 110 pounds that’s pretty close to the human weight right under 10 pounds that seems to make sense this animal weighs 2,000 pounds why put a product meant for a 2000 pound animal into this and a baby doesn’t even know why all right a baby on average weighs 7 pounds at birth I really don’t know where I’m supposed to be pointing this it’s like a magical wand there we go um a calf weighs 90 pounds at birth at birth 90 pounds baby 7 pounds calf 90 pounds the calf will grow to 500 pounds in under a year in 9 months 410 pounds in under a year what makes them grow so large so fast the milk but of course they’re not getting the milk and if it’s not organic what are they getting hormones they’re getting steroids again that’s not something you pasteurize out of the milk and how do you keep animals healthy in these conditions you pump them up with antibiotics 70 percent of the antibiotics produced in the United States are fed to farm animals that’s not good that is not good you know you wonder why so many people are dying in the hospitals they get some infection and they take these antibiotics and they don’t work anymore so how do we how do we justify how do we actually justify putting a product meant for a 2000 pound animal they grow to 2,000 pounds in two years into this well the story once again the story justifies the action say it enough times you convince yourself it’s the truth every story has an author who is the author of this story right and what is the ultimate goal of the dairy industry I mean why would the dairy be in the dairy industry be some holier than thou company I mean if I said to you cigarettes it does a body good you probably say I work for the cigarette company right we none of us would believe that but I believe this and if you believe that milk does a body good why would 75 percent of the human population be lactose intolerant do you know that means that means three out of every four people in this planet when they drink milk they suffer one of these symptoms diarrhea stomach ache gassiness bloated ear infection excess mucus and that’s normal if you suffer from any of these symptoms stop drinking cow’s milk your body’s trying to talk to you your body’s saying look I can’t do it anymore stop listen to your body your body knows best of course the dairy industry will come up with a new product called what lactate they just they just they just put they put the enzyme you see the reason why most people are lactose intolerant is because all mammals and human beings are mammals have an enzyme known as lactase put an A right there that enzyme breaks down the sugar known as lactose as we mature we lose that enzyme so it’s normal to be lactose intolerant but of course the dairy industry starts injecting the enzyme into it that’s not normal that’s not natural and again you’re going against what your body is telling you you know the dairy industry says listen to us we know better than your body they don’t your body knows best you are your best doctor but it must be good for kids though right I mean cuz every school I’ve been into elementary middle and high school is all one product being served what product is that no but what’s the number one cause of food allergies among and children everyone take a wild guess no alright so if most people on this planet can’t consume milk and most people most children and infants are if they have an allergy it’s it’s from milk cows milk and not not peanuts but cow’s milk why again are we drinking this what what have we been told drink milk gets strong bones does a body good what does about it good calcium does a body good the question is is this the best source of calcium let’s find out countries that consume the most milk what countries drink the most milk I go into classrooms and you get kids in like Florida all right Norway would be on this list as well what is osteoporosis it’s a loss of bone density it’s literally weak bones remember you’ve been taught drink cow’s milk get strong bones what countries have the highest rate of osteoporosis all right well neither is just a random coincidence or there’s more to it the more to it is this any product that comes from an animal has animal protein that makes sense animal product animal protein well that animal protein you knows protein is the amino acids the building blocks of protein those amino acids which are good unfortunately though they’re high in sulfur so you want amino acids but the problem with animal protein is that those amino acids are high in sulfur when you put that in your body your body becomes acidic you’re making your body acidic and your body’s not meant to be acidic it’s meant to be alkaline right the pH balance is going lower than what it should be so how does your body compensate well they have to neutralize the acidity so what do they do they start releasing calcium from the bones so the more cow’s milk you drink according to these statistics the weaker your bones can actually become the more animal protein you eat the weaker your bones can actually become in fact if you look at countries in Africa and Asia they don’t suffer from very high rates of osteoporosis they also don’t drink very much cow’s milk if none at all and they also don’t eat as much animal protein now kids will say yeah but wait a second what do I put on my cereal table himself right it’s because this information isn’t it’s out there but people aren’t being taught it and this is you know this is basically the alternative perspective and you know you can do your own research and find out if what I’m saying is valid or not but I mean you can go with these alternative milks and a lot of people out fake meats and fake milks no they’re not fake they’re real all right these are real products and they come from plants you have the soy milk the almond milk rice milk coconut milk oat milk you can do hemp milk high in protein so these are alternatives that you can do I know you’ve all heard of a taste test right let’s do a health test all right so here we have the milk that comes from an animal and here we have the milk that comes from a plant a soybean all right there is a hundred and fifty milligrams of calcium per half a glass in your cow’s milk how many do you think is in your soy milk it’s the same 150 it’s exact same and a half glass all right so what’s the difference well this comes from an animal and once again an animal protein can leach calcium out of the bones and all animal products meat dairy eggs fish is high in cholesterol it has cholesterol and your body naturally makes cholesterol you don’t need to put any more Klesko in your body so this has cholesterol this does it all plant products don’t have any cholesterol and all plant products everything you see up here of everything you see over there on the table fruits vegetables rice beans has fiber has fiber so plants have fiber in your cholesterol animal products no fiber and high in cholesterol so let again let’s do a health test high in cholesterol no fiber high in fiber no cholesterol which one do you think is the safer choice I rest my case all right but you don’t have to do this I mean human beings don’t really need to drink anything besides water and that’s really all we need to be drinking and you can have your orange juice and your apple juice but we just need water now again this is for this cereal but you can get all your calcium from plants I mean you think about what is the largest and strongest land animal on earth an elephant weighs 10,000 pounds you know what is diet consists of right that’s it no if he’s eating spinach but it’s his plants it’s plants you’re gonna tell now ephant daddy you know his bones look a little weak he needs to be drinking the milk of a cow you get all your calcium from this now a lot of people say to me ah man but you know what I get it but then I I love my cheese I can’t give up cheese look I tell people this if you’re going to give up any product give up dairy there is the worst I mean the greatest trick ever pulled was convincing people they need to drink milk dairy is the worst in terms of the cruelty inflicted upon the animals they suffer for a longer period of time and it’s just completely unnatural and unhealthy is unhealthy and there’s a reason why people love their cheese and their milk it’s meant to be addictive I mean just think about you know it might be hard I can’t remember but you know when we were younger most likely we were nursing from our mother right from her milk it has to be addictive the child wants that has to want to have more why because this is the greatest growth spurt in their life this is the greatest growth spurt that you ever had when you were baby drinking your mother’s milk same for all their animals and as we get older our parents including the animal parents wean their children off of it so you’re supposed to you’re supposed to desire it you’re supposed to want it and then you get weaned off of it they’re selling a product it’s addictive it’s addictive it has a chemical called casein morphine when you digest it that chemical is released okay so morphine morphine it makes you giddy it makes you want more it makes your brain think eat more eat more your body is saying I can’t I can’t digest it properly so you are addicted the first step to what a recovery is to acknowledge it 68% of all disease in the United States are diary related is a government statistic what that means is that you know especially when I talk to a high school class where my audience is you know 99 percent eating meat dairy and eggs if you don’t change your food choices you might become part of the statistic I mean it’s what three out of every five people this is a government statistic in fact what are the leading causes of death in the United States what are the top three cancer heart disease strokes diabetes number six all right every forty seconds somebody suffers a stroke in the United States that’s the American Stroke Association the American Heart Association says that every 24 seconds somebody suffers a heart attack in the United States and the Institute for cancer research says that every day 3400 people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer at 3,400 a new people how many people in this room know somebody or knew somebody who has or had cancer raise your hand take a look around shoot this is know we find it a little disturbing I mean we might be living longer but we’re living longer with diseases that haven’t been around that that that they’re more rampant than they ever have been in fact I’ve been reading that they say that the children today the young generation today will die at a younger age than their parents meaning that you know if your parents live in 275 they might die at 70 and we’re just going down how is that possible in fact is the 68% coming from the image on the right or the left I mean you ever heard of somebody suffering a heart attack because ate too many fruits and vegetables it’s not heard of a key to a healthy diet is a variety of foods in a variety of colors how much variety do you really sit in fact why why is this causing most of the death and disease because despite what we’ve been told despite what we’ve been taught we look nothing like omnivores biologically speaking we don’t look anything like carnivores we look identical biologically speaking to our brother from another mother we look like gorillas we look like the great apes we look like the horses the cows the giraffes the elephants the Zebras how so our teeth not my teeth with canines I love what people say what about our canines really you really think they’re very shot I mean if I if we had like shot canines like our cats and dogs and if you really think you have canine teeth or Schaaf take a look at your cat or dog I mean would we be using knives and forks if we had these right we have more teeth why we chew our food you know tonight when you’re feeding your cat or dog notice what they do Limited chewing mostly swallowing our jaw goes like this we grind our food their jaw opens up wide in fact if you want to know what humane slaughter looks like here it is look at the animal kingdom the fastest land animal is the cheetah go 70 miles per hour now a tiger can go about I think it’s about 3540 miles per hour is pretty quick now you have the deer the antelope the gazelle not as fast right so you have carnivores tiger cheetah Jaguar and then you have the deer antelope and the gazelle so herbivores carnivores now the carnivores are quicker but what’s what’s the difference here we got on the right side all right I guess it would be your left side the carnivores are all the track and field stars quick sprint add a breath they don’t have very much endurance on the left side or again the right side for you this would be the herbivores which don’t have as much speed but have more endurance endurance they are the cross-country runners so what we like to assume or maybe not we don’t like to assume but logic would say okay that the faster animal would always get his prey but that’s not the case it’s not the case because you have track and field versus cross-country so that means that the tiger is only successful in the hunt 20% of the time that means eight out of every ten deer will escape the slaughter so what kind of deer will the tiger be able to capture the sick the weak the injured the lost the old the young this animal weeds out the weak we’re not doing anything like that in fact if we were meant to be on top of the food chain don’t you think we would have some claws to rip through flesh and if I brought a pig into the room and asked you to kill the pig with your claws pig would probably enjoy it more than anything else and this is perhaps most important your intestines and cymbal with my representative small intestines large intestines also known as the colon small and large now your intestines combine large and small make up 10 times your body size your body being your mouth to your anus which is about 3 feet and then by that by 10 and you have 30 feet of intestines in your stomach and it’s you know from this wall through that door 30 feet of intestines in your stomach carnivores omnivores it’s about 3 to 6 times their body length so let’s say that Simba it’d be about you know anywhere from 15 to 20 feet 30 feet 15 feet whose food gets traveled out quicker Simba’s which is good because you can call it bacon as much as you want but once it’s in your body it’s no longer bacon it’s decomposing flesh it’s bacteria and it builds up and they have by the way ten times the amount of hydrochloric acid to break it down so we don’t even have the pH balance of the enzymes that break it down properly so what happens it leads to clogged arteries which leads to heart disease heart attack strokes diabetes high blood pressure high cholesterol and obesity you ever heard of a tiger suffering from high blood pressure high cholesterol strokes obesity you know why these animals don’t suffer from these diseases because they eat what’s natural to their Anatomy when it comes to diet we have the dumbest species on this planet one of these two things have in common mercury in fact there’s a warning label there’s a warning label on fish I don’t know if you ever seen it you know what it says certain people should consume it men and women pregnant women all right hopefully it’s not pregnant man all right pregnant nursing women women who may become pregnant young children should not the following fish including tuna because nearly all fish and seafood contain some amount of mercury chemicals known to cause cancer birth defects and reproductive harm what else does the government tell women not to consume when they’re pregnant alcohol cigarettes drugs so basically government say hey look if you think about becoming pregnant lay off the drugs for a little bit and stop eating fish if we can do that much harm to a woman why would anybody want to consume it and I mean do I really need to you know say at this point do any one of us want to touch any food that comes from the seat mmm all you gotta do is turn on the news open up a newspaper what do you see oil spill why why would you want to put this I mean here’s how it works you take you take a small fish in the Gulf right now right very very small fish that small fish is inevitably going to swallow some oil it’s going to swim further out maybe miles away from from the spill and we’ll get by a larger fish and then that larger fish is now contaminated and will swim out even further and that larger fish will then get eaten by even a larger fish now that even larger fish is contaminated with oil and then we catch that even larger fish and then we eat it cooking the animal is not going to get rid of the oil it becomes part of the meat so why do we consume it though why do we consume you know this this this flesh of an animal what you’ve been told you need to eat meat to get protein protein all right but how many grams of protein are we supposed to get anybody know okay in terms of grams per day it’d be about World Health Organization says forty to fifty about that forty would be for the average female don’t man would be for the average male don’t but it’s funny how we don’t tell that to kids I mean I only learned this recently myself too I mean you know going through my whole life and never really bothering to find out and nobody ever bothered to tell me it’s like you know saying here have the keys to my car go you know pick up some stuff from me go get my groceries but I didn’t teach you how to drive the car teaching kids you gotta eat it but not teaching him how or how much now again let me show you how easy it is to get protein all right especially here in the United States all right your standard American diet for breakfast you got your bacon you got your cow’s milk and you got your hen periods all right how many slices how many slices of bacon what you want now I know you might not eat bacon now but how many slices do you remember as a kid maybe maybe two okay each slice has 5 grams two times five all right how many eggs would you want to each egg has six grams so what do we got twelve plus ten 22 how many glass of milk one glass each glass is eight grams so you are at what 30 you’re not even done with breakfast that’s not including the toast with cow butter you might put on it so you’re not even done with breakfast and you’re almost at the limit the average American does not need to worry about getting enough protein they need to worry about getting too much protein that’s why the United States has the highest rates of obesity in the entire world all right I mean people all the time say change well you don’t need me where do you get your protein from like all of a sudden like holy like it’s all wasn’t dawned on me like I have been without protein for the last eight years go to McDonald’s get a Big Mac huh like I’m about to fall down or something or pass out have you ever heard of somebody in the United States suffering from a lack of protein and going to the hospital it’s unheard of yeah it’s funny even dealing with kids you know I have a kid say you know I tried to go vegan for a day and I got really sick so what it’s like it’s like it’s like you know like people they all I know somebody who was vegan it was sick really I know tons of meat eaters were sick I mean like yeah you can be an unhealthy vegan what I’m telling you is it doesn’t matter if you’re eating meat dairy eggs fish or you’re eating a plant-based that you should know what you’re putting in your body you should know how how many grams of protein you’re getting you knows you know the amount of iron calcium that you’re getting and by the way people say omega-3 from fish you can get that from you know the seeds the nuts you can get that from other things flax seeds is a very good example think about this these are the largest and strongest land animals on earth what is their diet consists of plants you’re in good company if you’re only in plants and what’s full what’s so ironic about this is that the large and strongest land animals not only do they not just just eat a plant-based diet they also live the longest I mean this animal can live to 70 years they can live to about 50 to 60 years the gorillas about 50 years in the wild and their diet consists of nothing but plants you’re gonna tell any of them they’re missing out in protein I mean this animal has 10 times the upper-body strength of the average male adult and where is he getting all his protein from from this his diet consists of roots shoots bamboo and banana he’s getting all his calcium all his iron all his vitamins all his minerals the amino acids from this you get everything everything here’s a new food pyramid right it’s two things your body is like a machine okay think of your body as a machine you have to put the proper fuels in it to get it to work properly if you don’t put the proper fuels it ain’t going to work and if you put fuels that aren’t as good quality of the others that will lead to heart disease cancers strokes diabetes obesity high blood pressure high cholesterol it’s like if you take a Porsche and you fill it up with diesel what happens you just you just screwed the car up right and I guarantee what are people going to say to you when you say heaven I I put diesel in my car today you know what they’re gonna say to you I guarantee it is it is wrong with you no offense when somebody puts a hamburger in their mouth nobody say what the is wrong stop stop all right you get everything all right I know I said pick up your body is machine now think of your body as a house I love I love analogies think of your body as a house right to build a house you got to start with a foundation you can’t start with the roof here’s the foundation this is the foundation this is where all that starts the fruits and vegetables key to a healthy diet variety of foods a variety of colors you get everything from this right and then you build your walls with legumes the beans and you got the whole grains the wheat the pasta the spaghetti the rice the breads and on top your roof you got your nuts and seeds you can get everything from this everything all your vitamins a b c vitamin D from the Sun you get all your calcium all your iron your omega-3 all your protein the amino acids everything from this everything now I know I’m a skinny white dude with glasses telling you get enough protein but these guys aren’t skinny only one of them’s white so as you can see these guys their diet consists of no meat no dairy no eggs no fish there might be some variations that you know Tony Gonzalez he might be eating fish you know I don’t don’t hold me to it but I know Prince Fielder who is your 2009 homerun King Home Run Derby king no meat no dairy yet no eggs no fish mac danzig who fights in the Ultimate Fighter hit season one champion UFC fighter no meat no dairy no eggs no fish so you can still excel at you know your sports you can still gain muscle mass on a plant-based diet again just remember the gorillas so what do they eat instead of dairy you know everything everything you know a meat-eater a dairy eater I eat I eat as well it just comes in plant form no cruelty involved no hot you know no cholesterol high in fiber and these are all the processed food this is the transition food this is where you go when you go from eating meat you know and you make that switch instead of poultry get it beef garden burger veggie burger right here what you see up here this is one of the best items on the market again not like the healthiest food in the world but certainly better than your meat this is called the riblets now you know I want you to try it you haven’t tried this go to Publix Whole Foods you can get all this food at Publix and Whole Foods it’s really amazing if you if you try it out on you know your family you know tell them it’s meat you know I’d love to see the response they give it really is good stuff and remember all meat dairy and egg products go through a process all right it doesn’t just magically form in this case the process involves killing cooking pasteurization refrigeration freezing and we cannot forget the all-important seasoning I mean I remember going to McDonald’s as a child and I didn’t just get a slab of meat you know its slab of meat had herbs and spices put into it was put on a grill cooked and then it came to me with a bun lettuce tomatoes ketchup mustard and onions and a pickle what all those things made out of plants we put condiment spice and herbs on the meat to make it taste better in fact what would meat be without plants just be a dead animal be a carcass on your plate would be no different from roadkill so the word of the day is vegan and the vegan is somebody who chooses not to eat any meat dairy eggs or fish and again how is this extreme how is it extreme not to be drinking the milk of any other species how is it extreme not to be eating hen periods how is it extreme to not be participating in a system that unnecessarily kills animals a lot of kids say man think even after all this they’re still like what do I eat as a vegan now all these products are vegan there’s no meat no dairy no eggs but this is all crap this is unhealthy this the junk food vegan and you know kids get all excited all right I’m going vegan I just nothing it’s like god only knows what the town the fans um you know if your die consists of nothing but Oreos skittles airheads fritos sour patch kids and big league chew you’re gonna die this is unhealthy I don’t know if kids hear that but you know all right I’m gonna live on a healthier note you know you have your spam with eggs I have my scrambled tofu pancakes you’ll have to use cow milk use soy milk oat milk rice milk almond milk coconut milk hemp milk fruits and vegetables spaghetti pasta refried beans even have vegan sour cream guacamole comes from the avocado the soy cheese rice cheese they even they’ll have this magical cheese I get to in a sec veggie burger veggie dog cupcakes you they have egg replacers we don’t have them up here so you can replace the eggs with bananas applesauce even you can use soy milk oat milk more flour water coconut milk ice cream one of the best ice creams in the world again not healthy but you know healthier than cow milk ice cream you know I’ve always said to people that if you can put a man or a woman on the moon how hard is it to make a cheese that doesn’t come from a cow or you know goat like how is it hard is it to make a vegan cheese well they heard me this is called Daiya cheese actually and it’s great thing is no soy no rice it’s actually made out of tapioca and arrowroot flour I know that’s not making your mouth water but man it is good here’s another example of waiting at your protein from this is a vegan sausage it’s about that big it’s the size of this remote and there’s four in a package each one of these has 29 grams of protein again the healthiest food you can eat is the whole foods I don’t mean the supermarket I mean the fruits the vegetables the rice the beans you know stuff that’s fresh that’s not processed I’m the last thing I do want to show you is another video there’s a happier video and this is the whole idea of change in perception I know I’m keeping your Jesus longer than you probably wanted but um it’s a really beautiful story and I hope you enjoy it you you you there she is beautiful girl she was tagged for slaughter and that would have been her face but she wanted to live and so she literally ran for her life and now she’ll live out her life is sanctuary it’s interesting how the public responds when one individual animal you know makes a run for her life they end up making headlines on national news people’s hearts go out to this one individual animal the cruelty that that happens to farm animals is largely hidden you know behind factory farm walls and people aren’t aware of it when you look in her eyes you know everyone wants the best for her once they get to know her and when people are able to identify with an individual and look her in the eye and see that she’s a living feeling being who has a will to live then people care I’ve been working here with Animal Care and Control for almost nine years this morning was really astonishing to me all of a sudden it dawned on me the sweet innocent cow running away from being slaughtered and I never even thought about it before that something is actually being slaughtered and it’s my ground beef and it’s my tongue and stuff like that and we’ve been eating there some years I never pictured that face on that yeah and it hurt I can’t do that so now we won’t work on not eating me me and my entire family cuz I’m realizing that the Select had saved today and when my family will be saving a couple of more banks she’ll take she’s about a year old absolutely beautiful Hereford and those unfortunately are cows of the years for me she’s most likely at a live market and because they have very strong will to live like any living creature she godless she had a will to live and she did it where she’s going now she’s gonna have like cows of her own greedy she’s gonna be so happy when the trailer arrives gets the cows in the herd remove yeah they may will move in a big line everybody lines up they will start moving to comfort her and to tell her that they’re there and she will move out and look at any animal any creature has a strong will to live she’s an ambassador for all animals who are still suffering and and if you don’t don’t have such a such a lucky all people love a happy ending and it’s happy I see that like 100 times I still get goosebumps it’s simple you know it’s unnecessary it doesn’t have to be this way you change your perception you change the story that’s all it is it’s just the changing of the story and we can’t wait for other people to do it we have to do it ourselves every animal wants to live every animal wants to live and no animal wants to experience pain if you guys want more information you can always email me at James at arc dot org you can visit our website for all this information a RFS org we’re giving these presentations throughout the year this is obviously every

Longevity and a Vegan, Plant Based Diet – Brian Clement

now can you imagine if these people gave up eating any animal-based food and how much longer they may live because from the loma linda studies which is v blue zone that was just added recently they showed that plant-based eaters live an average of seven years longer than meat-eaters and unfortunately in these blue zones many people don’t follow their own rules so they may be cheating and eating small amounts of meat and dairy here at Epocrates we’ve shown the best of blue zones on the planet earth ever in the history of humanity there’s no meat there is no dairy people do live longer none of us age the way the rest of the population ages not because we’re exceptional because their degradation because they are the exception to the way they should be living one thing that Hippocrates prides ourselves on is we’re not mono focused on diet alone longevity is a compilation of different attitudes movement exercise food and even a spiritual life whatever that may be for you whatever that individually is for you what we know is that we’re multifaceted creatures and we need to start with an attitude of purpose and if we know why we’re here and what we can contribute we’re bound to want to do so we know that exercise is equally important to food because you could eat the best food in the world but not being mobile with your body and the muscle structure building your bones are gonna get weak you’re going to age your hormone levels are going to go down your minds not going to be as astute and we don’t want that so we want to do weight lifting exercise stretching exercise and aerobic exercise we know that when you don’t alter a food and you eat raw plant-based organic food it has not only the many nutrients that we already can identify in biological science but how many more are there we the yet to discover and we may find out tomorrow or a hundred years from now that there’s elements in this food because you haven’t processed it that is really the key to why we live a long time this work began in 1954 by dr. Harman and dr. Harman realized that when you gave certain nutria to the human cell they were antioxidants and helped to prevent free radicals we also know that exercise and other lifestyle points help to prevent free radicals and some free radicals are not so bad for you but we want to take the masses of free radicals and hold them back we also know that when you think that you’re part of something larger whatever that may be the universe God religion it always gives you an ability to free yourself of stress and study after study has shown people who have faith true on adulterated faith live longer and when you combine those as we have here you can have magic occur where people live long happy healthy productive lives I don’t want to live a long life if I’m not productive that should be your mantra I want to live a productive long life you

HIGH PROTEIN VEGAN MEAL PREP | by Gaz Oakley

if any of you are wondering why I’ve got my glasses on to remember all the facts about the nutrients I had to put them on so I could see my screen in the background they’re not for sure I promise I just can’t see very well hi guys it’s guys and welcome back to my youtube channel today I’m gonna be doing something slightly different I’m gonna be showing you how to do vegan meal prep so before I went vegan I used to body build and in my Q&A video you guys requested that I made some vegan high protein meal prep ideas for you guys what I’m going to be cooking today is full of flavor it’s got lots of protein and all the other nutrients that you need when you’re training or working out regularly [Music] I’m actually going to be starting with the main meal first because that takes longest to cook and the sweet potatoes are behind me cooking and to serve with them I’m going to be doing a nice bean chili which is full of nutrients protein and it’s really healthy so let’s get cooking that add a small amount of oil or water to a pan add one finely sliced red onion add one clove of minced garlic add one red chili finely diced I’m adding two teaspoons of cayenne pepper one teaspoon cinnamon and one teaspoon of cumin just allow this to cook for a couple of minutes before we allowed all the rest of the ingredients now as you can see I don’t want this to be your typical boring meal prep I want to get some flavor in there it’s really simple to do add 1 cubed red pepper add 3 cups of chopped tomatoes from account its smelling absolutely amazing I’m going to let that cook for a few minutes and then we’re going to add the beans and all the vital nutrients so this chili mix is being cooking for a little while now it’s time to add our beans I’ve got a mix I’ve got a cup of chickpeas which are cooked I’ve got a cup of red kidney beans black beans and sweet corn they’re all cooked and they’re so high in protein complex carbs potassium calcium they’re just really good for when we’re working out and they repair the muscles really well so you want to as much of these into your diet when training as you can just get those in just to bring out some of the flavors I’m adding a pinch of sea salt that’s basically the chili done is so simple I’ve slightly tweaked my actual chili recipe just to make it easier for you when you’re making your meal prep on the weekends ready for the week it’s got all the right all nutrients in there that we need for when we’re training so let’s get on to the next dish so as I say guys I’m doing everything a bit backwards but just to make sure that I cook this efficiently and quickly because you don’t want to be cooking for a long time on the weekend you just want to get your meals done I’m ready for the week basically so for breakfast I’m going to make a really simple porridge which you can add milk to in the mornings whenever you just warm it up in the microwave or you warm it up on a hob whatever you like but I’m gonna make sure there’s lots of flavor in there and lots of nutrients in there and it’s just really simple so grab yourself four containers I’m going to be making four of each course so it wouldn’t be porridge without the porridge oats I’ve got gluten free porridge oats and I’m just going to do a cup in each one after all breakfast is the most important meal of the day you want to start your day right and get some good complex carbs and slow-releasing carbs so that’s what these oats are perfect for check on the chili every now and then just give it a little mix it’s looking perfect I’m going to flavor the porridge with some raw cacao powder which is full of antioxidants really good for the blood and it’s a aphrodisiac whatever that is I’m joking I know what is so the idea behind the breakfast is you just add your milk almond or soya give it a stir and get it into a saucepan or in the microwave and it’ll be perfect every time I recommend adding a cup of milk to this and it’ll be perfect porridge next in I’m gonna be adding some mixed nuts I’ve got some coconut some cashew nuts some walnuts hazelnuts a bit of everything really nuts a pack full of protein really good calcium they’re just super foods in general good fats as well which is what we need when we’re training next I’m gonna be adding a tablespoon of hemp seeds great for your skin your hair also high in protein as well next I’m gonna be adding around about a tablespoon of chia seeds to each one these are literally energy food apparently ancient warriors used to have a little pouch on their belts before going into war and the user munch on a table spoon to give them energy in battle I do recommend added some dried fruit or fresh berries just bring them along separately and just mix them in before eating your breakfast make sure you have a couple of bananas with your breakfast it’s always nice setting out like this at the start of the week bananas again great sugars perfect energy food so that would be my breakfast so guys the next meal is a light lunch which can be served hot or cold I always like to have one meal that I need to warm up so for example the chili and one meal that I can eat on the go which is cool or you can warm it up as well I’m gonna be doing some quinoa which I’m going to add some amazing flavors to I’m gonna make it a lemon and herb quinoa and also serve it with some grilled piri-piri tofu but if you don’t want to use tofu or soy products I recommend serving this dish with some falafel and really to check out my falafel and flatbread video because this works really well and it’s packed full of protein and good nutrients as well but I actually have the most amazing falafel recipe in my book so make sure you pre-ordered that on Amazon it’s vegan 100 or just typing gas Oakley and you can pre-order it now it will be out very soon back to the lunch I’ve got my quinoa here I cooked it off and I’ve got four cups in total that’s a cup for each dish and quinoa is so good for repairing or building muscles because it contains all of the essential amino acids which is vital for when were building muscle or repairing muscles so we need to get this in when we’re training so first up I’ve just preheated this griddle pan behind me and when it’s hot I’m gonna start grilling tofu but first up let’s mix together our quinoa I’m going to add the juice of one lemon squeeze it through your hands so you don’t get any of the pips in as you can see I have a mix of quinoa here I’ve got the red and just the white as well I’ve just steamed this really simple to cook it only takes about 10 minutes so into my quinoa I’m just adding some mixed herbs I’ve just got a mix of thyme parsley and basil add whatever you like chives are really good as well just roughly chop it as I said this meal I recommend having it cold it’s good to have an option of a cold dish especially if you can’t get to a microwave it’s all about getting some really nice flavors into the quinoa it’s got all the nutrients in there you just need to add some nice flavors I’m also going to add a cup of chickpeas just to get some extra protein I just love chickpeas as well it makes it a bit more substantial really smells amazing you don’t have to add salt but I add a little bit of salt to bring out some flavors give that a stir around make sure everything is well incorporated and let’s get on with the grilling of the tofu I’ve just pre-marinated this tofu in some of my piri piri sauce if you want the recipe go to my skewers video that that just transforms the tofu into something really really flavorsome tofu is great source of protein and really good source of calcium as well so let’s grill these and add them to the dish the quinoa add some oil to your griddle pan if you don’t want to add oil just put them on a lined baking tray and cook them in the oven 180 degrees Celsius for about 15 to 20 minutes whilst the tofu is grilling behind me I’m just going to dish up the quinoa into the bowl and just add around a cup into each one I only like to make four of everything because after four days really you don’t really want to be eating it all the flavors would have gone and everything just doesn’t taste as good really they look really tasty the griddle might add some great flavor and just transform the bland tofu once they are done we will add them to the pots and then we will get on with the final dish they won’t be much longer around about three to four minutes on each side add two slices of tofu to each dish so I’m just adding the last at the tofu to the lunch meal and I recommend when the tofu is cool then add in some spinach but to speed things up I’m gonna add it for you guys now and spinach is literally essential to good health really I eat so much of spinach so I’m just gonna add a handful to each meal I’m also going to add some cherry tomatoes to the dish which are really high in vitamin C and just add another nice color to the dish I hope these meal prep ideas really help you out because they’re really good to make at the start of your week and feel free to sit a love them to your tastes but this is what I would generally eat I’ve had the time to Train I am going to get back into it soon I miss having a little bit of size to me so I’m adding some sliced red cabbage dark pigmented foods such as red cabbage and things like berries work to add more oxygen to the blood and are also anti-inflammatory so the chili is basically done it’s been on the stove for about 10 to 15 minutes and I’m going to get my sweet potatoes out of the oven which I’ve just baked now you can mash you can just peel them or you can just slice them up with the skin on do whatever you want with the sweet potatoes are you’d like to use sweet potatoes because they are great full of vitamin C they’re really how healthy vegetable they’re a lot better than general white potatoes but what I will say if you are training and you want to put weight on I recommend eating white potatoes over sweet potatoes but these are a lot healthier so I’m getting my 4 containers out and I’m just going to prepare these sweet potatoes I just like to chop off the end and open them up as I said you’re welcome to peel these I don’t mind the skin it actually is full of flavor and sweetness I just open it up like that and I’ve got 6 in total so I’m gonna add one and a half to each meal sweet potatoes have too many positives to mention and look at the range of colors we have already it’s just making sure that we’re eating the rainbow and getting loads of nice nutrients into our body and before I add the chili over the top of the amazing sweet potato I’ve got a little recipe for you which is really flavoursome and you can use it in loads of other dishes only making creme fraiche or sour cream which works really well with the chili and it helps cool it down slightly and it’s made from cocoon Utz which are again full of protein and really good for us in this Ninja Cup I have half a cup of soaked cashews and to it all I’m going to add is 1/2 a cup of water I may need to add a little bit more water but we’ll see how this is if you just rolled the lemon like this or will release some more of the juice and I’m going to add the juice of half a lemon because after all we want it to be like sour cream or creme fraiche we need to make it we need to get that lemon in basically to get some acidity into it just squeeze it for your hand add a pinch of salt pop your lid on and blitz it up on a high speed and there we have it is our creme fraiche done simple as that just adds a little coolness to our chili it will thicken up once you refrigerate it it’s just quite warm because it’s been in the powerful blender you need to make sure you blend it long enough so that it gets really really smooth I’ll just pop that aside and then we’ll get it on top of the chili right the Chili’s done and smelling really really nice you saw how quickly it was to make and how stress-free it is and just look at that how beautiful that looks packed full of flavor smells absolutely incredible before I add it to the containers I’m going to add some beautifully cooked broccoli which I’ve just steamed these little trees are actually full of protein believe it or not and they’re also a great source of vitamin K and iron which is essential for a vegan diet so simply get our lovely bean chili over the top of our sweet potato make sure you get a decent amount in there I try to aim for around a cup but the chili just so you know that you’re getting lots of the flavors and nutrients into it and look there’s even some left for your evening meal the day of making this lastly to the dish I’m going to add some ed-a-mommies’ round about a handful in each one these are so high in protein and they’re really flavorsome as well they’re actually soybeans so if you don’t want soy beans just leave them out add something like kale that would work perfectly as well also on top I’m going to add our little creme fraiche I recommend leaving the Chile cool down slightly before adding this I just want you to see the finished dish just for you to squeeze over a wedge of lime I recommend having some avocados in the fridge which you can just cut when you’re about to eat the meals they add some great fats and also some protein so get some avocados in with the chili as well just don’t put them in ahead of time because they’ll go dark and horrible I also like to stay hydrated of course you need lots of water when you’re training so snacking on some watermelon is great is so healthy for you as well but make sure you have big bottles of water that you can drink throughout the day so I’m just going to slice up this watermelon into some nice chunks you can slice this up smaller but I like having a big chunk to take with me wherever I am I go in and bite on it so guys there’s my meal prep done I’ve just got some sweet treats so I’ve got my salted caramel bars that I made in a previous video they’re full of fiber because they got loads of dates in there actually antioxidants because of the Ward chocolate and lots of nuts of course so I’m going to get one of these in each of these containers here and this is a nice snack or if you feel like a sweet treat that’s also healthy I recommend having one of those cherries they’re actually a really good food to eat after working out because it’s a dark fermented fruit again and they get lots of oxygen in your blood but you need after working out it helps repair your muscles so grab a little handful of each of those and get them into the bowl likewise blueberries are the same so have a few blueberries and they’re also a superfood as we all know [Music] so there it is there’s four days worth of meal prep for you guys when you’re working out and training them in the gym full of great nutrients to repair our muscles and to keep us for throughout the day it’s all gluten free it’s all healthy and yeah there’s
