[UltraVid id=344 ]TOP 10 HABITS THAT DAMAGE YOUR IMMUNITY – How to Boost Immunity

The immune system is your body’s number one defence mechanism which protects you from various types of bacteria viruses and other disease-causing pathogens. Your immune system and your health are directly related.
The stronger your immune system is, the more protection you will have against colds, viruses and other illnesses that can attack your body.
On the other hand, a weak immunity can make you more vulnerable to frequent colds, sinus infections and slow wound healing, as well as causing anemia, fatigue and lethargy.
Various factors can make your immunity weaker and render you susceptible to diseases and you may be surprised to learn that many common daily habits actually harm your immune system.
In fact, most of your habits directly impact your immune system, especially as you age. To keep your immune system strong, it’s important to adopt healthy habits and quit the bad ones. In this video we will
look at the top 10 everyday habits that directly harm your immunity.

Before & After Going Vegan | Our Health Transformation Story

[UltraVid id=313 ]There are many different ways to improve your health, and a number of different diets claim to do so, however, going whole foods plant-based, or vegan, is more than a “diet,” it’s a lifestyle!

We definitely did not make the switch overnight, it took many small steps and incremental changes to get to where we’re at now, but we couldn’t be happier about how far we’ve come and how much better we feel, now, in our 30s than we ever did in our teens and 20s!

EatMoveRest is about going beyond the kale, we’ve also invested a great deal of time into our fitness and sleep, and the 3 together have helped us to build a lifestyle that we can maintain for a lifetime, free of restriction and counting calories, and full of color, abundance, and energy!

My 16 Favourite Healthy Vegan Recipes

[UltraVid id=238 ]MY FAVOURITE OATMEAL RECIPES:
— Breakfasts: 1:16, Lunch: 4:16, Snacks: 7:13, Dinner: 9:06
__________________

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.

Vegan Dating + Long Distance Relationships

[UltraVid id=153 ]I always have to make things food so me and Jasmine have been dating for a year and a half and I thought I’d make a video about vegan dating long-distance relationships stuff like that and just our general advice on how other vegans can meet up and you know issues with long-distance relationships so yeah we’ve been dating for a year and a half and how did we meet yeah so we met on Facebook Jasmin messaged me first and yeah he just basically said he wanted to be friends get to know me and stuff and she was a PC gamer too just like me she’s into different games but you know we had common interests and pretty quickly you know just got serious we fell in love and I wanted to just be like girlfriend boyfriend at first and you know it’s kind of weird to have a long-distance relationship but you know I really liked you and thought it was worth it just coming I don’t know just somebody from Canada somebody from Belgium sometimes it’s just difficult to work out you know yeah maybe not I’m weird though yeah so I thought it was worth getting emotionally invested in her because she seemed really nice and you know with my type of occupation it was pretty easy to just fly out there and at least meet you and actually before we even did that I told her that I love you I was the first one who said that yeah yeah and things you know things got pretty serious pretty quickly awkward you are talking about this yeah yeah things got pretty serious pretty quickly and we ended up meeting in person back in April only a few months ago really and yeah meeting her first in person just felt right didn’t seem weird at all like I know some people who meet online they don’t have anything to say and just the whole you know dynamic of the relationship totally changes but me and her really got along and and then I’m here again came wet in July middle of July and staying here for three months and me and her actually planning on getting married that’s a crazy though yes without the cream yes so I guess let’s start talking about the long-distance relationship thing first because I guess that’s a big thing for a lot of vegans because we’re sort of few and far between so long-distance relationships I guess some of the difficulties we’ve had it’s just really hard only talking on like Facebook and Skype and it can get just it hurts sometimes like right deep in your chest that you know I’m together you know and I guess you kind of have to decide for yourself if the person’s worth that kind of pain in the long run yeah and Jasmine’s definitely worth it now we’re finally together after how long did it take for me to actually see you in person here yeah we were like apart for a year until we actually met each other in person but in some ways it can kind of be good because all you can really do is talk and you get to know somebody pretty well in a long-distance relationship yeah yeah I guess one of the issues is like trust issues because we’ve kind of had that and you know I think you the writer depends on the person the history yeah yeah that did you have not having any trust in anyone it’s very difficult right right you have to have a little bit of trust in the other person and they have to trust you too for it to kind of work out if you think the other person’s gonna like fool around with other girls or guys and cheat on you while you’re apart then you know it might it probably won’t work out if there isn’t really any trust so you know if you’re a fairly trusting person people do have to earn trust though too so and you know all you can really do is talk to them kind of get a good feeling about them and kind of trust your own intuition on things and worked out for us and other problems you think mostly Renner family members of friends trying to tear you apart yeah yeah interests were just talking shit regular person without knowing them at all yeah Jasmine’s sister said some things about me trying to convince her not to be in a relationship with me and my mom did that a lot as well saying it’s totally not worth it you can date other girls in Toronto and I just never let that get to me because I knew jasmine was really special and she was worth meeting so that was never a problem for me so yeah I guess just deciding on whether or not that particular person is really worth the pain of just not seeing them for quite some time getting over family members friends kind of not agreeing with it or giving you trouble and working out some trust issues that’s just the biggest considerations in the long-term relationship yeah I make a very good living and just my job gives me so much mobility and that’s another consideration that somebody else might have to have – yeah yeah so you know maybe you’d have to find another job in an entirely different country because you know Canada Belgium it’s not even you know we’re not even in the same country so someone one of you might have to support the other for quite some time so that might be another issue for you but luckily we didn’t have that problem shut up and the next part of course since were vegan I thought we talked about vegan dating and there’s issues with that because vegans are few and far between I guess I guess the first biggest issue is deciding whether or not it’s actually worth dating another vegan because it’s hard kind of finding each other like for me there’s no way I could be a date a meat eater I just can’t handle it at this point what about you right no people have like the mindset if they can change and go vegan but right so much stress yeah especially initially getting already like it’s not a healthy start a relationship yeah and I like for me it would give me serious trust issues because like you know you can’t expect somebody to just go vegan straight away just because you’re vegan and you’re in a relationship so you’d expect them to like cheat on their diet and then that would give you trust issues like some people just go vegan yeah some people do and some people just take a year but I wouldn’t yeah I I wouldn’t be able to do that yeah oh just grossed me out kissing somebody who just had like meat or cheese or dairy yeah so and then again you might have to go the long distance route if you’re dating another vegan if there just happens to be no vegans in your area other than that like other than the internet a very good place to meet other vegans would be at animal activist events in Toronto there’s the Toronto Pig save and direct action everywhere those are the two big groups I know of and there’s also like vegan meetups that I’m involved in like potlucks and stuff and you can meet quite a lot of guys and girls in there there’s a pretty diverse group but um yeah you just might have to go the internet route and the internet route isn’t always a long-distance thing it might be pretty close I know some vegans are kind of socially awkward and not very open in public thank you like me yeah yeah you’re actually worse No you just pretend and not hate people but deep down inside so I’m social and I’m fluent and that’s something you’re not at all I can make conversation and you get I can talk good all you do is response and he doesn’t make conversation out of your own separate friends basically yes so meeting people on the internet isn’t really a bad route and the benefit with internet dating not necessarily even going to an internet website just going on like some vegan forum and you know you can meet somebody who you already know is vegan and even if you go on a dating website you already know their interests whether or not they’re vegan so you can spare yourself the issue of actually going outside dating somebody figuring out their interest and then you know wasting tons of time and even money figuring out if you’re at all compatible in any way so you know going to a dating website figuring out of somebody’s vegan and if they’re into some similar stuff like you it’s also a good round Facebook though yeah yeah Facebook we met on Facebook it works you know good relationships start on Facebook or other social media sites yeah yeah just becomes what you make out of it I guess yeah don’t count count out a relationship just because you met on the internet it it works we met we get along really well and it’s planning on making it very long-term so I’m not making a face I don’t need to fart I farted like before I came in here I no I don’t think so [Laughter] those are tips for vegan dating in long-distance dating and relationships it’s kind of well yeah we sort of dead oh yeah I go online for dating whoo shut up so those are our experiences with vegan dating in long-distance relationships and some of our own tips and hopefully some of you found that helpful and of course keep making those vegan relationship gains are you doubting let us begin now with the Tao the way it gets to your plate

My Advice to New Vegans

[UltraVid id=138 ]Okay so the question is what advice would you give to someone that is just getting started with all of this with all of this meaning diet or diet and training or what does all of this look like yeah the real challenges that keep coming up for me and most of the people that I talk with or work with it’s not the diet itself it’s how the diet is perceived that’s really the biggest challenge that’s the biggest hurdle to get around we have our we have our own brainwashing there were a lot of times when I started out running when I was doing the running raw project in those first few years where I really doubted that I was getting enough protein I wasn’t sure because I’ve been part of that cultural brainwashing and back when I was an athlete in my late teens I was doing lots of protein supplements and I was doing all kinds of gland products and all kinds of crazy crap and creatine and everything else because I wanted every edge I could take so you know fast forward 15 16 years into the future and part of my brain is saying well can I do it without those things is this diet enough I don’t know am I getting enough protein I am and there’s no evidence to show me the contrary but yet those doubts were still there and they those doubts stayed there for a couple years it’s only maybe the past three or four years that I’m really confident with this diet even though I had the data even though the data was right there I still had doubts well what if it doesn’t work for me what if I’m different somehow so it’s really about overcoming your own cultural brainwashing and then dealing with your friends and family and you know lovers spouses whatever it may be who are gonna have cultural programming as well that you could have to deal with then you’re gonna have to continually answer the question where do you get your protein or do get your FAS and where do you get this and where do you get that and how do you get your calcium and what about your b12 and we’re constantly bombarded with these things if you’re eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and some nuts and seeds you’re getting the most nutrient dense diet on the planet no standard American diet can compete as far as nutrient density goes as far as the wide variety of vitamins minerals and phytonutrients and fibers you can’t compete on those diets but yet the people eating those diets believe that somehow their diet is superior without any evidence to support it but it’s this like cultural virus that everybody has that they’re eating the deficient diet but clearly the vegans and the raw foodist those are the people that are deficient it’s like smokers telling people that they’re deficient in oxygen because they’re breathing clean air it’s like how could you get enough oxygen and breathing clean air you need cigarettes to get oxygen kind of you know what’s going on you know you get all these people that are eating a horrible diet which is heavily supplemented they’re like oh you can’t be vegan because you need b12 and that just shows the veganism doesn’t work well that’s interesting because your milk has vitamin D added your flour products have niacin riboflavin thiamine and reduced iron added to them and on and on and on all of the products that you’re eating are heavily supplemented your diet doesn’t work in fact your diet heavily supplemented still leads to heart disease cancer diabetes and on and on and on so the government tried to fix your diet by adding lots of supplements to it mandating that these foods be supplemented and you’re still falling apart but yet they believe somehow that were the ones that are deficient it just doesn’t make sense but this is what we have to deal with we have to deal with a culture that doesn’t make sense that’s going to alienate us and that’s going to attack us and it’s going to make us question ourselves so if you’re eating a wide variety of foods and a wide variety of flavors and textures you’re going to be okay and maybe you want to take some vitamin b12 maybe you want to take some vitamin D that’s up to you do your research get your blood tested but even so no big deal you’re gonna be healthy it’s really about dealing with the the emotional stuff dealing with the cultural stuff that’s the biggest hurdle so you know my advice is never defend yourself just smile nod you know make a joke about it but don’t defend yourself because you can’t win that conversation because it’s not a rational conversation

[UltraVid id=135 ]Hey guys Aaron and dusty here welcome back to eat move rest and Happy New Year yes happy 2018 so with the New Year here a lot of you are probably thinking it might be time to clean up your diet lose a little bit of weight maybe you’re even entertaining the idea of going vegan after all dr. oz did say that it was like the trend of the year yeah so 2018 it’s only building steam we want to share with you guys seven pip pitfalls or seven reasons that people fail out of plant-based or vegan diet yep so let’s get right into it number one people don’t eat enough calories I know that when I started or we started this journey I got rid of meat and dairy and all of a sudden I was just starving I didn’t know what to eat what’s left right so make sure and get your calories number two too much vegan junk food yes there is such a thing if you go to Whole Foods or any grocery store you’re bound to find plenty of processed packaged junk foods labeled vegan and all the sudden you see the halo 4 minutes glowing light and you grab it snatch it up throw it in your cart bring it home prepare it and you maybe don’t feel any better than you did when you ate your regular burger no Aaron will tell you I am a vegan junk food addict I do my best but every once in a while I just have to order that vegan pizza and eat the whole thing and I feel like dying yeah so steer clear of the junk foods and stick to the Whole Foods plant-based foods yeah more on that later number three being unprepared now this is something that we still struggle with nobody’s perfect but being prepared is going to help I know again when we first started we didn’t know what to buy at the grocery store we didn’t know what to prepare at home and basically we were unprepared and then always hungry yeah so has the same goes if you fail to plan you can plan to fail right number four the fourth reason why people fail at a vegan or plant-based lifestyle is criticism yes and criticism can be harsh it can be downright mean we haven’t had to deal with a whole lot of that especially from our online community it’s been overwhelmingly positive things on YouTube but it can also be just joking around and just giving you a hard time which can also be uncomfortable right so my father-in-law Erin’s wonderful father is the biggest jokester in the world and I don’t know how many vegan slang word nicknames that he’s called me and us but hey we have survived and you will too just stand up to that criticism yes stand firm be confident just walk the walk and eventually people will start to ask you questions right okay so number five money people say it’s too expensive to be vegan and that is simply not true we were just at our families for the holidays and somebody was cooking up a big hunk of meat sitting on the counter we looked at the price and it was $50 a $50 piece of meat do you know how many rice and beans we can buy with that and cases of bananas no kidding we buy beans rice lentils potatoes by the bay it’s so cheap they last forever you can do it for six reason why people fail at a vegan or plant-based lifestyle is impatience patience is a virtue my friends yes it can be tempting to want to go cold turkey and switch overnight and think that everything’s just gonna be like all happy sunshine and rainbows but it can actually set you up for failure and you’ll end up reverting back to how you were before yes so it took me at least two years and it was a little bit quicker but yeah we started out with vegetarian we did it for 40 days then we went back and like it was a two-year journey for us and we’ve right here and we’re happy now but be easy on yourself and have patience and we’re still learning new things every single day that the journey continues and you’re okay with that because we feel great and we’re continuing to feel better right so finally number seven the reason people fail is confusion they’re like what I thought this but this guy says that and we’re all just confused what’s right dr. Oz says one thing Oprah says another thing and ritual dr. Gregers say another thing yeah our best advice is to check your facts yeah for example wheel of nutritionfacts.org dr. Michael Greger all of his research is pulled from medical journals that are not backed by industry it was unbiased it’s gonna be clean pure truth okay so to recap the top seven reasons people fail on a vegan diet are number one not enough calories yes number two vegan junk food number three being unprepared yes number four criticism number five money or budgeting number six my biggest one impatience and number seven confusion yes so if you guys like this video you know the drill give us a thumbs up leave us some love down below leave us a comment hit that subscribe button if you haven’t already and follow us on social media yes at Aaron stanczyk at DB stanczyk and click that Bell that’ll make sure that notifications will be turned on yes you’ll get alerted when we put out new videos here because the next video we’re gonna do for you guys will be the top 7 ways to succeed at a vegan or plant-based lifestyle right so stay tuned we’ll give you all the best answers to this videos problems oh yes happy new year okay crazy and how much of that is just like meat that you have to shave off earth not me yeah alright yeah that’s okay that’s right
