To all of those of you, to all of those of you who are making that giant leap to go vegan, I’m proud of you and a lot of people always ask me what’s the three best ways to go vegan. I’ve been a vegan for over 14 years now. I’m not special, anybody can do this. Anybody can eat better and live better and feel better. Deep divers, did you know that over 150 billion animals are killed every single year ?Think of that while I tell you the three best ways to go vegan. The first way is what I call meatless Mondays and dairy-free Monday’s. Forget about doing it the whole week just focus on the meatless Monday say this Monday no more meat okay?
I know it’s gonna be hard because your mom’s steak is pretty good right? I know but it’s meatless Monday and it’s dairy-free Monday and what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna eat mock meat, you can eat seitan tempeh porn.
I love milk Ralph what are you gonna drink? Almond milk on that Monday, then also have more fruit and more veg and then as weeks past, you’re gonna do that on Tuesday, then on Wednesday, then on Thursday, then on Friday, then on Saturday, then on Sunday! Before you know it, you’ve done that for a whole week and then you continue doing that. The second best way to go vegan. How to transition to the plant-based diet is to research, read books like the China study by dr. Campbell which shows the benefits of the plant-based diet. But where am I gonna get my protein Ralph? Chia seeds a complete source of protein III live, has more protein than beef. So does spirulina. So there are plenty of plant-based sources of protein but also find out why you want to go vegan. I’m doing it because I sincerely love animals, not just the dog down the road or the cat down the road. I love all animals and we have to protect animals, what is the third simple step to go vegan. Surround yourself with other vegans, people who love food, plant-based foods. Get out there, start networking, go to vegan festivals, start to realize that being vegan gives you more energy. People are happier, less anxiety, I’m one of those people and then deep divers, well you just say feels so good to be a live baby. Can I get a hello beautiful deep divers?

In order to detoxify a body or cleanse a body, one option is to have a colonoscopy done, so that the colon and intestines are completely emptied. Find out how to cleanse a body by eating health food with help from a registered and licensed dietitian in this free video on fitness and nutrition.

What if you really can’t go vegan? IBS, Allergies & Limited Food Available

For people in a very difficult situation where eating plant-based isn’t an option yet. You can still choose vegan in all other aspects of your life, and be careful about how and how often you consume animal-based products. Because trying your best will always be better than not trying at all

IBS affects over 11% of the global population, (that’s one in every 9 people you meet!!) so let’s not be embarrassed about it! I want this channel to be a safe, open and kind place for people dealing with IBS. We’re far from alone, so let’s ask questions, share advice and feel better together xx

▽ What are FODMAPs?

The term FODMAP is an acronym, derived from “Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols”. They are short carbohydrates found in lots of healthy foods, which the bacteria in your intestines will break down, producing gas in the process.

For unclear reasons, some people are particularly sensitive to this and experience painful and embarrassing symptoms such as bloating, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea, constipation and fatigue. FODMAP restriction has been found to improve symptoms in people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID).

▽ What is a Low-FODMAP Diet?

The Low-FODMAP diet usually involves carefully cutting the down the amount of FODMAPs you consume over a day and at one time for 2-6 weeks until your symptoms resolve or at least become manageable. Then you “re-challenge” each type of FODMAP individually to see how sensitive you are to them. Thankfully most people can tolerate some or all of the FODMAPs at certain levels or combinations.

▽ Is it forever?

NO! From this feedback, you can reintroduce foods in a way that won’t set off your symptoms. Your tolerance will likely improve over time, so you can always retest foods when you feel up to it.

▽ Resources For Vegan Low-FODMAPers

These are some two things I’ve found to be invaluable since starting the low-FODMAP diet.

The first is the official app* from The Monash University. It’s the easiest and most up-to-date way to check what foods are A-okay and how big your portion size can be. Measurements come in grams, as well as “cups”, which is great as a brit!

My 16 Favourite Healthy Vegan Recipes

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.

Local Organic Farm Tour | Midwest Plant-based Vegan Lifestyle

You want beef at the price of bread right well the system can’t sustain the system the industrial system can turn it out but the system s and the earth can’t sustain the time that we spend to think our ideas to grow to match them with the dressing or inappropriate use and get them to your table and the time that you spend deciding who to come out with getting all the way out here and the time around the table that’s all part of your experience in a meal there are three tiers so you know those restaurants that next up you know that was delicious right and then the third tier life is good hey guys Aaron and dusty here and welcome back to eat move rest so clearly we’re not in the kitchen today we are actually taking you guys on an organic farm tour yes so Jerry and Renee Cornett are the owners of lake house farm which is an organic produce farm just north of Lincoln Nebraska where we live and we became acquainted with them and have gotten to know them over the years at our local Sunday farmers market they own an organic farm-to-table restaurant right there on the farm called Prairie plate we had an awesome tour they sat us down with fed us an amazing meal we were there for like we were basically there all day and we had an absolute blast these people care about quality of food organic farming just amazing practices all the way around yeah eating seasonal like it’s it’s about as good as it can get especially where we’re located right here in the heartland this is the way food should be they’re bringing it back and this this place is literally a hidden gem in every sense of the word especially for here in the middle of the Midwest in Nebraska where everybody’s just worried about belying up at the local steakhouse and all-you-can-eat buffets this is locally sourced seasonal organically grown fresh as fresh as it gets and a lot of thought and preparation goes into each and every plate the menu changes on a weekly basis based upon what’s growing at the farm so thank you Jerry and Renee we had a such an awesome day it was so much fun we might be back like every Monday we’ll just do like a farm tour and you can see this lunch that would be amazing look we will let them do the rest enjoy you guys around so enjoy

Hey guys Aaron here at Eaton arrest and I am with Jerry and Rene cornet of Lake House farm which is a certified organic produce farm just outside of Lincoln Nebraska when we opened this restaurant we thought okay let’s celebrate food right let’s make food fun yeah let’s make it a celebration she wanted to a relatively small restaurant where you’re the chef maybe assistant it’s personal yeah not personal you go talk to your table you know 56 seats you know restaurant that’s different yeah yeah we kind of keep going through that they just don’t know what they don’t know yet yeah you don’t even know to ask the question and so where do you get the word to people and they’re always so offended that come out of your mouth how come you’ve been over in five years and I didn’t know yeah the way the farm grows and what we grow is based on what’s the restaurant need you know as a nurse through the season the folks that come from outside are like yeah this is awesome this is a unique there are probably a dozen restaurants like this in the United States right you know and most of them charge a lot more than we do and then there are some people that are retired farmers and it’s interesting because often I get the comment from them you know we used to eat this way right yeah we used to we used to eat this way yeah yeah very there wasn’t a lot of slaughter yeah to do what I know yeah you don’t have enough freezer space to put it you know kidding what are you gonna do it what are you gonna do with all of them yeah you know we use a oil block system and it’s essentially this little block we start to see it in this is a this is a summer lettuce called grandpa admire it’s an heirloom lettuce that does well in the heat and so will will grow winter lettuces and then we transition to summer lettuces and then there’s a point where okay lettuce just doesn’t grow very well here because it gets too hot it gets really bitter and so what we do in the restaurant okay at that point stop and then you go to a salad that is tomato and cucumber or not lettuce the first item on the menu is always lake house farm salad it will change to be whatever it is and we have that’s the best from the farm and sometimes it’s so people see salad they automatically think that so it’s very important the server’s remember to tell them that the salad isn’t lettuce if it’s not lettuce because we’re used to thinking that’s the only choice mm-hmm primary purpose of this is really protecting it from the wind yeah it’ll get down to ten below in here and the kale will be fine yeah vintage will be fine really even the lettuce will survive one or two frost yeah we grow more Tomatoes out here and like two and a half rows are just sauced tomato sandwich ah no so we they’re meant to be cooked down two types of sweet peppers one is long and the other one the sheep nose pimento is a small one it’s like a slow food yeah smaller but it’s got a lot more meat flesh to it and the skin is still thin so you don’t really have to peel them for a lot of things if you’re gonna appear it use them in something but they stuff and cook really well yeah what’s all of you guys been organic since day one yeah it’s hard that like the certification process is pretty rigorous it is every year you submit a plan and then they review it and then they have an inspector to come out and it really comes down to you know doing with you said you were gonna do and then paying attention to things like soil health yeah in mild adversity like they just added a biodiversity page for us we looked at I look at this property in two ways one it’s got an incredible amount of biodiversity yep and so I just let it go I don’t try to do anything to change it [Music] [Music] out in the middle of the desert is hopeful California and and we took the kids out there once just to go out and walk with the desert you know do some other fun things stayed there there’s actually a little Museum and they explained to you you know this is the carrot we grow you know because it can grow and stand yeah and a machine can harvest it yeah and you know sand doesn’t you know though the vegetable it’s not picking up nutrients minerals from sunlight statement you’ve got an atom just about everything yeah we’re here we have clay soils which means they can be a little more problematic to grow in but in a lot easier because the particles smaller for that plan to take up all of those nutrients or minerals right and then convert it into I like one flavor for us but for others nutrients so that carrot that grows in a healthy humus organic matter rich soil is naturally going to take up all of that all those flavors yeah yeah looks like yeah a formula versus breast milk Oh site in the Roman period when his remedy was actually very good where these science knows better yeah and so we’re gonna make formula that’s gonna have it everything the baby needs in its gonna and then they were finding out wait we missed this we did you know about that and you can’t simulate this other thing and then there’s a so all of that stuff that we don’t know because nature’s better at it yeah that also works for other system I asked in fact it was an old man you know I think is a retired farmer he’s like I said like why do you buy our carrots like they taste like the ones my grandmother used to [Music] [Applause] [Music] so we just got plated lunch and we’ve got sweet potato vindaloo and some rice well along with some steamed and sauteed chart so we’re excited busy in the ponies perspective you know when you when you grow it for the season you grow it for the region and then you harvest it for flavor focus one you don’t need to do much in the kitchen and two you walk away more satiating yeah and it’s celebrity there are three tiers I think in the restaurant industry this came for books one is for so you know those restaurants yeah that next up that you know that was delicious right and then the third tier was life is good I think we want to be kind of between that was delicious and life is good love that somewhere in there yeah but it never tastes better than in context in the season at the time the place that’s grown it’s not going to get any better the time that we spend to pick varieties to grow to match them with the dressing or an appropriate use and get them to your table and the time that you spend deciding who to come out with getting all the way out here and the time around the table that’s all part of your experience in the meal yeah okay so we hope you guys enjoyed this video if you know the drill give us a thumbs up give us a like leave us a comment below leave us some love let us know what you liked what you want to see more of in the future subscribe if you haven’t already
