    The Pros and Cons of Getting Protein on a Vegan Diet

    Here’s the deal…

    The average American thinks that he/she needs protein from animals in order to survive.

    This idea/concept couldn’t be further from the truth.

    And I’ll use the analogy of the race horse once again, because a horse is the perfect example of a sentient being and mammal that thrives on a Vegan Diet!

    A Vegan Lifestyle: The Old World Sourdough Bread Update

    A week after the Old World Sourdough Bread incident, I’m feeling much better.

    In case you are just checking in and missed all the hoopla, I have been gluten-free since the beginning of the year, officially. And even in 2016, I was trying to be more gluten-free but not 100%. But during this transition period I was noticing that bread and anything with flour in it had caused me bloating and feeling rather sluggish.

    A Vegan Lifestyle: What I Eat Throughout The Week

    I’ve been thinking about what I eat during the week as a Vegan.

    I think I try to mix it up and eat a variety of foods, but I know that I could do better in eating more variety and eating new fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds.

    More Thoughts on a High Carb Diet for Performance and Athleticism

    It took me many years to realize this: Carbs = Energy!

    But, the current dietary establishment wants everyone to be on a low-carb, high protein diet!

    What does this tell me?

    The Meat and Dairy Industries are at it again, saying that carbs are bad for you and cause weight gain. But if you’re on a low-carb, high protein diet, meaning that you eat more high protein foods like dairy products, red meat, chicken, seafood and pork, that your going to lose weight.

    Getting Slammed by the Gluten Beast

    At the beginning of 2017, I started going gluten-free, with signs in 2016 that I was developing a gluten-sensitivity.

    Sure enough, as the months progressed, I felt so much better as a vegan who was also avoiding gluten. The problem was that now I was avoiding many foods I loved, such as bread.
