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!

Recipe

Ingredients

Shortbread Layer
150g brazil nuts
150ml mild olive oil
150g golden caster sugar
100g demerara sugar
¼ tsp of salt
200g plain flour
100g semolina

Caramel Layer
2 cans of evaporated coconut milk
250g golden caster sugar
100ml golden syrup
125g coconut oil
pinch of salt

200g 70% cocoa solid dark chocolate

Method

Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark four and use a splash of olive oil to grease a square baking tin 20x20cm in size.

Blitz the brazil nuts in a food processor until they start to form a paste. Add the oil and blitz again until completely smooth. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the food processor and blitz again.

Put the sugars, salt, flour and semolina into a bowl mix well. Add to the food processor and pulse, the mixture should form a moist crumb the colour of sand that sticks when pressed together.

Press into the tin, prick all over with a fork and bake for about 25-30 minutes, until golden and crisp. Allow to cool.

Put all the ingredients for the caramel in to a heavy-based pan, and heat gently, stirring to melt the coconut. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally and continue to simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until reduced by about half and thick and fudgey. Pour over the shortbread
and smooth with a palette knife. Set aside and allow to set.

Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water spread evenly over the set caramel. Leave until solid, then turn out and cut into squares.

WHAT I EAT IN A DAY: Vegan Fitness Influencer!

hey guys so I am back with the second video of my transformation series these were highly highly requested after I shared my transformation story if you haven’t watched that that was a few videos ago on my channel so you guys you can watch my entire life back story of my transformation but this video is going to be a little bit more a nutrition based and you guys all wanted to see a what I eat a day but honestly I eat the most boring meals and I usually don’t even cook for myself so I thought it’d be more educational and more helpful for you guys if I actually talked about how I used to eat how I eat now throughout my transformation and how you guys can know what to eat how much to eat all that stuff for your body and your goals and then I was going to show you some of my favorite snacks and meals even though they’re really boring so you guys know that I had an eating disorder for like on and off for like four or five years which obviously is screwed up my metabolism so I was eating under a thousand calories for like most of that entire time period after that I quickly increased my calories up to about two thousand and then slowly worked them up to four or five thousand and that’s how I was able to put on like 50 60 pounds in a year I was eating four thousand five thousand ish calories so I really really helped my my talent metabolism reset built that up so it’s so much faster now it’s like crazy fast now I can still eat a crazy amount of food decide to lean out I cut my calories down to about three thousand they’re like just under 3,000 not sort of what I’m eating right now between 3,000 and just over 3,000 just because I don’t want to be losing any weight right now I want to be either maintaining or even putting on a little bit of weight so I guess you could say that my maintenance is about 3,000 calories and I’m 5 to 140 pounds again as well if you guys didn’t know I’ve been vegan for just over 5 years now so that means they don’t eat any animal products and yeah that’s been really really working for me obviously you have to put a little bit more attention into like getting in your protein I’d be a little bit more creative with meals and stuff especially when you go out to eat I really love the lifestyle and eating that way it really works for me so how what how would you guys know how much to eat what would be best to eat what you’re gonna want to do is I I highly suggest not using online calculators or like basic base calorie ranges or whatever you can search up online because let me just tell you that when I search up how many calories I’m so see burning even if I put in the amount of exercise that I do it doesn’t tell me to eat more than 2,000 calories and I know for myself that if I ate less than 2,000 calories a day I would be nothing like I would lose so much weight so that’s just proof that these calculators don’t work for everyone they might work for some people but I would highly suggest just playing around with your calorie ranges to just play around with what works best for you especially with calorie ranges I would suggest choosing like mm maybe 2200 is a starting range and if you want to lose weight I you wouldn’t you don’t want it to be too fast so I play around with like trying to find a number where you’re not losing more than like a pound a week or something or else you’re gonna risk losing muscle as well which you probably do not want to do and then if you’re wanting to gain weight and you said it at 2,000 say and you’re not gaining any weight then slowly increase I want you guys honestly I always preached eat as much as you possibly can how I typically eat a lot of the questions that I get are surrounding like protein shakes my pre post workout meals joint eat snacks everything like that so I’ll give you guys kind of an overview of how I eat and then I’m going to show you guys some of the food that I eat some of my favorites so I eat like five or six times a day I find that works better for me it just keeps my energy up the entire day I feel that food just really keeps me going honestly so I like to have five or six like small big-ish meals every single day you know like breakfast lunch dinner that is kind of like meals throughout the day so I wake up like super early like 4:30 in the morning usually for 4:30 so I’m usually eating my first meal then before I go to the gym that’s just like a really basic meal I find that if I eat too much really early I get really bloated and I feel uncomfortable during my session so I eat usually the two pieces of toast with some jam and peanut butter and that’s that’s usually what I have as my pre-workout meal so I highly suggest eat lots of carbs before your workout post-workout meal I focus on carbs fat and protein so my post-workout meal is one of my biggest meals of the day I have usually a massive bowl of oatmeal with some fruit peanut butter as well as a protein shake I use the woman’s best protein then I just have creatine in there as well trying it but in 30 minutes to an hour after is like pretty much as fast as I possibly can after my workout I try and get some a good meal in I’m gonna stop talking I’m gonna show you guys we’re gonna head over to my kitchen and I’m gonna show you guys just like some basics maybe get some meal or snack ideas or food ideas for your next grocery trip so yeah let’s head over to the kitchen hey guys so now that we’re in my kitchen my biggest question is always on protein shapes I thought I made to show you guys I guess what I put into my shakes post-workout I eat I eat I drink three of these a day so the liquid of my choice I always use either on milk or cashew milk and then as for protein and supplements that I put into my shake I use this woman’s best vegan protein and I’ve use this throughout my whole transformation I absolutely love it this is just the chocolate vegan protein plants plant-based protein powder and I’ve a discount code in my buy of your interest in trying it out and then one of my biggest singles and meals that I mentioned before is oatmeal so I just Jews I have this massive jar of oatmeal here so I just use plain rolled oats I mix a banana into it to make it a little bit thicker if you guys don’t like oh you know this is really really helpful and then I just put peanut butter and berries in it usually or if I haven’t had my protein shake I can even mix my protein powder into my oatmeal one of my favorite snacks to eat throughout the day is rice cakes with peanut butter and jam I got these from Whole Foods and they’re just I don’t know brown rice rice cakes that’s a great way to get carbs and protein in so that could also be a really good pre-workout for you guys you make it convenient for you if you’re like in school you work full time or whatever you’ll want to pack your food this you’re not tempted to eat out all the time and stuff like that so I have things like these kind bars just protein granola bar type things and this is the maple glazed peek in and see so and this is the almond and coconut I also really like Laura bars as well and they’re just like healthier options of granola bars and they taste really really good in my opinion and they help you get a little bit more energy with protein card stuff like that so I would highly suggest something like this you guys can bring along with you as for bread options as I mentioned I like to eat toast for my breakfast projym this is I got these silver pills like this from Whole Foods silver has sprouted power the big sixteen loaded with 16 seeds and grains to fuel active days it’s like supposed to be a healthier bread which I highly suggest if you’re going to be eating bread try and find a healthier option than just your like plain white bread since I’m talking so much about peanut butter if you want a lower calorie option obviously this isn’t he’s exactly like peanut butter but it’s pretty close I get this from Whole Foods and it’s just a it’s PB 2 which is this powdered peanut butter you pretty much just like put it in a bowl mix it with water and I have to think it tastes really really good I’ll even eat it when I’m bulking I think it tastes awesome if you guys are vegan and you’re wanting more protein options – I eat a lot of like tofu beans even like tempeh obviously my protein powder but there’s also things like organic black bean pasta so this I just get it Whole Foods or like natural food sections and this has 22 grams of protein for a core of this package that’s incredible so this is just like being pasta then obviously how like you can have this like normal beans here or anything like grainy like quinoa couscous all that stuff usually has some protein in it so this is just golden and black quinoa I usually buy in boxes and it usually can be made like rice to like microwave so it’s really really simple if you guys are lazy like me but those are like my protein staples and then obviously I eat a ton of fresh food so like fruits vegetables everything like that and I think that’s literally all like yeah I promise you guys I literally eat so boring I eat the same things every single day but I eat all my favorite foods so I feel like it’s it’s really easy for me Oh another thing another thing is my favorite cereal so I eat tons of cereal because serious like my favorite food and when I got into fitness I refuse to give up cereal so Nature’s Path is a really really good brand I can get this at like Sobeys if you live in Canada or also at Whole Foods so you guys can get in the States as well it just Nature’s Path and these are the kamut puffs and these it’s like really good healthy cereal it doesn’t taste like anything so I had like fruit and cinnamon is up to it but they also have like peanut butter flavor chocolate flavor and everything like that so if you want a healthy cereal option your cereal lover like me and refused to give it up this Nature’s Path cereal great option so honestly you guys you don’t have to give up unhealthy food it’s just fine healthier options or make like meals that you enjoy that are somewhat healthier like if you love peanut butter eat your damn peanut butter that’s how I see it everyone’s number one question so I do not really drink at all to be honest I don’t enjoy it but I drink probably once every like two months and even when I do drink I don’t drink too much so I do not recommend it but this is like literally sitting in the back of my videos like I should probably like talk about alcohol but no I don’t suggest drinking too much especially if you’re trying to make progress of losing or gaining weight it’s going to affect how you train in the gym your energy throughout the date obviously alcohol has calories and those calories out fast so I would not recommend drinking too much especially don’t quote binge drinking every week it’s just going to reverse all your work throughout the week and it’s not worth it if you want a drink here and there 100% that is totally fine but I would not recommend it and I personally do not drink very much at all so yeah that answers a lot of your guys’s questions on whether I drink everything like that I do I started from 80 pounds and I got here you can do it too trust me it just takes a little bit of research on a little bit of work um a lot of work but you can get there as well follow me on instagram and give this video a thumbs up if you enjoyed it and i will see you guys next time bye

Is this the new Vegan Internet ?

hello everyone thanks for joining me and we actually have a sunny day here in the UK so apologies for the glare maybe in the video if my glasses never think but I wanted to come and talk to you about a new sort of app a new social media new thing that has come to the vegan movement which i think is going to be fantastic I think it’s definitely gonna make going vegan and staying vegan for the foreseeable future so much easier and it’s gonna allow other companies other brands that are vegan to grow together and create a community where people can find everything they want under one place so this thing that I’m talking about it’s called the V society and you can get it as an app on the you know the on app or you can get on Android obviously you can look it on the internet like that obviously I downloaded it today and found it on my phones I’ve down there have been looking for it for and everything and the idea of it basically is you can find everything you want within one thing they’re dubbing it the vegan internet so basically if you want to find articles if you want to find news if you want to find videos you want to find content creators if you want to find clothing food recipe arts literally everything about the vegan moon everything within the vegan room everything you could possibly want to know about going vegan how to stay vegan everything like that reach out to new content creators finding people you can interact with meetups things like this everything that makes being vegan fantastic about like interacting with other vegans you know food clothing everything that that you might find difficult finding out life you go on Google different websites everything is gonna be under one site and they’re meant to be rolling this out further in other countries of these in the UK and everything like that and there can be branching out but something like this is such a powerful tool this is gonna be somewhere like you know maybe like me if you could first me as a content creator you know people on YouTube on Instagram for everything like that where they’re spreading the vegan message there are different things you can come in as you know whether it’s contact great where it’s just a normal community profile whether it’s someone who is an activist this is another platform where you’re able to reach people another way in which you are able to interact with people and ever way in which you’re able to create a community and this is so important obviously when you first go vegan sometimes it can feel very very strange you might be the only vegan within your group of friends within your family within your own little sub sector you know your little group of friends whatever it is to have another community you’re able to reach to maybe finding an area where like if you’re interested in different foods where you can eat different clothing things you might just find confusing all this information is under one site and obviously now that it’s coming as a map and everything like that it makes it so easier to reach and you can message people different like you can follow different groups you can create groups it’s basically another way well what makes Facebook great is the fact that they’ve got groups on there okay but the problem is you’ve got so many different people if you’re gonna be putting up posts trying to spread awareness or just talking about some your incident or just asking questions it’s very very easy to get negativity people you know giving you hate whatever it is for being a vegan if you come into an area which is dedicated just to vegans dedicated for people that want to spread awareness spread information help people wanna meet up weather people create friends this sort of environment is all you could say are protecting them a protective environment but it’s an area where if you’re a vegan you’re interested your transition wherever it is this community is going to have everything you could possibly want and a lot of people when they fail or they’re no longer vegan a lot of time it is because they don’t have that supported out that community they struggle finding things to eat they struggle you know finding out information they just you know a and out with other friends out there’s so many different things that go into some people failing but something like this it’s gonna make going vegan and staying vegan so much easier so I definitely recommend any of you who are curious anyone who’s transitioning and on who’s already vegan download this out whether you want to go online on your PC into it that way or you want to download it I recommend download it give it a go try and interact with people try and create a community if you want to search for me on there my name is under there the same as like my channel name so anyone wants to reach me on their internet it’s just another platform where we were able to reach people and I think that is fantastic sorry I’ve been away for so long I’ve been away from my birthday I went to Central Park so I wanted to sort of just have a bit of a break from constantly thing about ideas and trying to put out stuff so I’m back now I’m gonna be sippin out some more content again so thanks for tuning and I know that I’m over 1500 now so for any of you that have subscribed viewed everything like that thank you your support is appreciated obviously I’m now moving towards 2000 that’s gonna be my next target so thanks for sticking around for me please make sure that you share these videos other people help this channel grow to help reach more people to build a community and I will see you guys in the next one

SMALL VEGAN BUSINESS HAUL

Hey everyone welcome back to my channel I hope you’re all doing well it feels like forever since I sat down here and film few guys I think it’s actually been like a month like a solid month since I actually sat down and filmed a video so this feels a little bit strange so today I’m actually filming something a little bit different for you guys I’m going to be filming a small vegan business haul because I’ve recently picked up a couple of things from some stores that I have discovered on Instagram so I just wanted to share them with you guys cuz I know the christmas is coming up and some of you may want to support the smaller businesses rather than the big stores so I thought I would show you a couple of sauce that I’ve recently discovered and yeah that’s it really so the first story I want to talk to you guys about is an Etsy store that I discovered through Instagram called the punky bunny so the punky bunny is run by a lady called Emma she creates everything on the store she hand makes it and she ships everything from her house so everything is done in her house and she designs everything as well she has some really unique designs on there she creates pins patches cards prints like birthday cards and stuff like that t-shirts tote bags key rings absolutely everything basically so I was really happy to see that she had a really good variety of stuff on there and everything on the shop kind of has a theme and a look to it but I just I just really loved so I picked myself up the gift box now this is such good value for money because inside here you get quite a few items and this gift box costs 9 pounds so it’s really really good value for money by the way I bought this myself with my own money and it’s not sponsored at all not gifted so just thought I’m telling that before show you so this is the box that it comes in and it comes in this like the letter box sized box so that if you don’t have like I don’t know somebody to pick up your box for you if you’re not going to be home and then it will just be posted through your less box which is awesome so in this gift box you get a set of 4 pins a keyring a print and a card and so you get to pick which print card and keyring that you want and then the badges she will just send you with ever badges are on shop she has tons of badges and they’re all really cute anyway so don’t worry about getting anything you don’t like because I guarantee you won’t get anything so I have got four pins here and they say vegan because I care hail Satan friends not food and go vegan you should in a little Yoda and I think I’m gonna use these for my lush tote bag because they’re all black and white and my lush tote bag is black and white and currently I have some pins on there that are like different colors and it always makes me cringe a little bit when I see it because it’s not it doesn’t match the theme at the bag so I really want to put these ones on there instead I think these would look really cool with it then inside this little box here which was actually packaged up like that came this keyring so a lot of the items that she has on her store are kind of this like Tavor theme so you don’t know what tarot cards are they’re basically like and I think it’s like they’re like they’re like cards that spiritual people use to kind of tell you your future and tell you where you are in life from what’s happening with you things like that and I picked up this a keyring and it says the vegan on it and I thought this was really nice it was really subtle she has some other really cool designs on there there’s a few other key rings that I really want to get and to buy these individually is a really good price as well so the print that I chose is this one it is again in this Tarot theme and this says compassion it’s got two hands making the shape of the heart with a whale insider and a Sun at the top and I thought this was really cute because I wanted to put a print in my house that was gonna be that I didn’t want something to say vegan on it because basil lives her as well and I don’t know if he would like me to just put like vegan posters everywhere so and I got this one instead it just says compassion I think it’s really subtle it’s really tasteful very nice and I really like it and the card that it’s printed on it’s really nice it’s kind of like all speckled and stuff from where it’s been made out of recycled materials and I really like that it just gives it a really nice look then the last item that you get in this box is a card so you can choose from like birthday cards I think she might do like Get Well cards or stuff like that as well she has loads of different card options on there I have this print here but sand that I keep just on like my little table and it says spice up your damn life and I got this from Urban Outfitters that’s actually like a birthday card but I just put it in one of those little frames because I thought it would be really cute as prints so I got this one which is a fox because I thought out of all of the cards on there this was the one that would look best as a print it wouldn’t look random just having that happy birthday and an inner frame I might in my flat and and I thought this is really cute I really like foxes I’ve come to appreciate them a lot more since going vegan before I was vegan I didn’t really appreciate foxes at all and now I’ve really learned to appreciate them especially after following and is it Jupiter or juniper is it juniper fox or Instagram the really famous Fox on Instagram so cute you have to go and follow him something I noticed while I was on her sister as well is that she does occasionally and throw in like a free gift or like a lucky dip card into her boxes which i think is a really nice touch and it’s so nice to get to order something and then you get like a little free extra summin summin in that i think it gives a really nice incentive for that person to go back and buy something and it’s also just very thoughtful I think it’s a really nice touch so in here she actually put another foxy item so we have it this notebook which is all lined paper and it’s really cute I really like this and I am actually I actually wanted a notebook I was actually thinking about buying a notebook a few days before I got this box and delivered to me because I’m doing a lot of stuff with my vegan guide at the moment on my website and I want to make some notes and stuff sorry if you can hear my tummy rumbling it keeps rumbling and I’m really hungry the next store I’m gonna talk to you guys about is a store that I’ve been actually following for quite a long time on Instagram it used to be called Asia ethical wears now the girl who runs this cassia she does like old school t-shirt printing so she used to print a lot of her own t-shirts and jumpers and stuff like that and she sold them on a shop called cassia ethical where she used to have this kind of like mandela and she used to do like mandela print t-shirts and vegan t-shirts like she has the whole vegan babe a lot of you may have seen this she’s the girl who’d prints vegan babe it’s her brand basically and I’ve been following cassia for ages and she recently rebranded her entire store to now be called care wares which is so cute by the way and she’s pretty much rebranded everything on she still has the vegan babe stuff but now she has a lot more kind of pastel papi vegan vibe clothing and everything is ethically made everything is hand printed by I think she actually does all the printing herself as well which is amazing so yeah I picked up a couple of things on care wares so the first thing I have here is this tote bag and it says tofu appreciation society now I fell in love with this tote bag when I saw it on her Instagram page I just really liked it I really liked the tote bags that don’t say like vegan all over them I like tote bags that kind of hint at being vegan but in a subtle way that are just fun and cute because I think they draw a lot of attention from people and then you kind of look into a bit more and then you’re like oh it’s like a vegan thing so the way this has been printed it is it feels and looks 3d it does actually come off of the bag a little bit I don’t know if you can see it there but this is just so cute and when I first saw this on the store and I thought this was why I’m really funny about having like white bags because well having like a white faux leather bag is fine because you can wipe it off but having like a cotton or natural material bag that is why or a light color I get really freaked out by it because I mess things up a lot so I’m gonna try and keep this bag as clean as possible it is a craze more of a cream color than a white which I was happy about because if it’s bright white I’m gonna mess it up in like a week but if it’s cream you know I’m not gonna mess it up that quickly everything came packaged really nicely she put it in like a pink mail bag and then everything was wrapped up in this really cute pink tissue paper with these little like care bear stickers on it and I just thought it’s really cute these are like really nice touches that you don’t tend to get with bigger and bigger shops or like bigger online stores you only really get these with small vegan businesses I’ve noticed so I think that’s a really nice touch and a really nice bonus of buying something from a small pekin business so yeah I have the tofu appreciation bag she has her little label on it there which is care wares vegan organic Fairtrade and totally cute which it is everything on there is totally cute and I said she’s rebranded and she has a lot of new stuff on there so you guys really need to go and check it out then I picked up one of the vegan baby butt patches so I mentioned you guys earlier about the vegan babe hoodies this is the logo that she prints on to these gorgeous pink hoodies and just so pretty I really want to get one I’m gonna put this onto a denim jacket I have a black denim jacket that has quite decent size pockets at the front so I think it would look really cool just like here oh my god it’s gonna look so cute the last item that I want to show you guys is my monthly greedy llama box so if you have been following my channel for a while then you would have seen that over the past few months I have been unboxing greedy Atlanta boxes now this is a vegan a subscription box greedy llama also has a supermarket and if you use my code la Marais you can get 20% off I think it’s anything on this site so I’ll leave that with the link to greedy llama down below so you guys can go and check them out okay so this is everything inside my box I’m really excited about a lot of this stuff in here I can’t wait to show you guys so the first thing I’m gonna pull out is these by owner organic maple syrup waffles now these look like stroopwafels if you ever been to Amsterdam the strip waffles everywhere they’re basically these like hard caramel very thin waffles and I think the idea of what you do with them is you put them over like a hot drink and they melt a little bit and then you eat it or you can dunk it in the hot drink you know I am gonna read to it because it tastes smells very good okay next we have the nares gnar I can never pronounce this nonce Nan’s mixed berry oat biscuits now I got a box of these in a previous greeting on the box they were like the ginger something they were like an orange box I’m not the biggest fan of Nan’s oak biscuits and to me they always look a lot nicer on the packaging than they actually taste so I’m gonna give these to my sister then we have a little a can of coconut blue coconut blue blue dragon coconut milk blue dragon coconut milk is actually a brand that I use quite a lot for my curries and stuff and when it’s on sale because it’s a little bit pricey in the stores and so whenever it’s like a pound I’ll always buy it because it is a good brand of coconut milk sorry I’m really hot that’s why I keep like pushing the hair on my face because it literally sticking to my forehead I am so hot then we have some vegetable Bowl tea organic looks like soup is it a soup or is it like a I don’t know it is a vegetarian friendly wheat-free gluten-free dairy-free vegan friendly low-fat mustard free and celery free oh I never heard of that handcrafted gourmet vegan wagon-wheel yes I have had a vegan wagon-wheel before and that box I mentioned earlier that my sister got for me it had a vegan wagon wheel in it but I don’t think it was this brand because I don’t think I’ve ever tried this brand but anyway this is the roundup vegan wagon wheel and I always like I ate something and yesterday that wasn’t vegan it had milk and eggs in it and I’ll talk to you guys for more about that in my upcoming vegan Q&A video and yeah I thought was going to throw up so now I’m looking at the ingredients of everything I’m like are you sure you’re vegan the last two things that we have in here are the bounce vlive balls so I always see these in the shops right but they are literally like two pounds for this tiny little ball and no offense to bounce but that’s really overpriced that’s so expensive and so I’m very surprised to see that they are in this box and because these are very expensive right in the shot and that’s what I really like about these subscription boxes is that not only do you get products that you wouldn’t really know about or buy before is that you do actually you can actually end up saving a lot of money because they retail for the items in this box retail for a lot more than what the box is what you’re paying for the box if you know I mean that’s the whole point of a subscription box I guess to like kind of save you money and show you new products but yeah so these are protein energy balls amis we have armand KO and armand spirulina and so yeah 9 grams of veggie protein in each one which is pretty good considering this is only 40 grams of or so that is everything I have to show you guys in my small vegan business haul I really hope that you guys enjoyed this I think I’m going to make this like a regular series on my channel I really want to try out different small vegan businesses and help promote them I mean I have a platform on here there’s almost 18,000 if you guys subscribe to my channel I think it’s really nice to kind of use this platform to support other small vegan businesses and so I’m gonna be doing that more regularly now and so if there are any small vegan businesses that you want me to check out or if you own a small vegan business and you want me to check it out and then please do leave your comments down below your suggestions so that I can take a look at those and possibly feature them in the next video in my next video obviously um I’ll only feature a small business that I buy from so yeah please do let me know so I can have a little look-see I hope you guys had an awesome weekend and I

VEGAN FOOD AND SPIRITUALITY (ENLIGHTENMENT)

Hi guys and girls split the vegan again welcome back to my youtube channel and today I’m going to talk to you about true the spirituality because sorry for the I by the way fresh out the shower yet yeah I’ve been thinking today about food and spirituality a lot and like they connect so good that it’s worth talking about i think and when you see people being conscious and being into spirituality they most most of the time of vegan and also most vegans do yoga or meditation or just just yeah it connects so well and yeah for me the same happened in the last like six weeks i got into meditation I got into lucid dreaming astral projection and I learned a lot about it but some people think now that I’m that I might go too fast or I don’t know if that make make sense I even think that I go too fast to be honest and it’s just a lot of information to process when you think about it and seen a lot of videos about spirituality and about awakening and enlightenment and it’s hard to yeah it’s hard to realize it’s hard to to think by yourself okay this is it like this is I mean there are a lot of all things I could learn and get into about just being about living about mind and about things like that I pineal gland and cleansing it with food and becoming more conscious like this is it on that level so and actually some people think it’s weird some people think yeah like I said some people think I’m going too fast but is it is this going too far or is this just how it is and yeah that’s just interesting for me that what what what food did what food did with my mind I don’t know it’s such a such a crazy thing to talk about because I feel cleansed I feel more conscious I feel more alive I feel more humane also because I don’t consume anything that harms an animal or even yeah I don’t know it’s just food and enlightenment food and spirituality food food is everything to be honest food is what makes you what makes you realize certain things and food also impacts your mood obviously and when I eat bad food now even if it’s vegan when I eat lots of chocolate dose of potato chips lots of salt what lots of sugar process you when I eat these bad things I feel I feel okay but not as okay as I could be because I know that I can consume whole foods and be much more happier and my body feels much more happier when I exercise more I feel more happier and yeah food and mind and food in the body is such a an interesting and actually a sacred secret secret bond what they have and when you realize that you actually want more healthy foods and you blame yourself a lot more when you don’t you healthy sir and I actually didn’t even meditate last week and I also ate the worst kind of foods last week so it it’s all it’s all can I don’t know it’s all connected and yeah let me know what you think about food and spirituality because I’m getting into this right now and yeah I just wants other opinions about it because it’s a that’s a cool topic it’s a it’s interesting what food does with our mind with our body especially consciousness just conscious living compassionate living this was it for today so we’ll see you next time please like subscribe comment below love peace happiness
