🐺🇪🇸 ♦ Grasas vs grasas ♦ .
Es importante conocer bien las grasas, en muchas ocasiones cocinamos con demasiados aceites no saludables, los cuales no notamos y son una bomba de grasas
En cambio las grasas del aguacate (u otras como la crema de cacahuete) son saludables, nos sacian y nos harán sentirnos mucho mejor, (en mi opinión el aguacate es una de las comidas más anabolicas) . Así que prueba a sustituir tu aceite habitual de cocina por un aceite en spray! -
🐺 🇺🇸 ♦️Fat vs Fat ♦️
Cooking with oil adds a bunch of calories without really doing anything to fill you up any further. . You can choose to use the oil in this picture or eat an avocado (avocado is one example but you can choose peanut butter or nuts or any other fat source). Whereas you'll hardly notice the oil, the avocado can actually help satisfy you and help with hunger. Instead of cooking with oil, use a cooking spray like Pam
NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD, AS TRUE HEALTH FEELS 🌱❤️🍌
2 of the more common questions I receive:
"How do you keep your lifestyle up?"
"Don't you ever miss meat?"
My active, fit lifestyle (training 2 hours a day, 6 days a week, running around 50 miles and lifting heavy) is a BI-PRODUCT of the health I consume. I switched to a plant based diet because I was interested in health, but BROKE 😂 I'd left the world of desks, finance and real estate, so how could I stay healthy whilst saving money? And I began to feel so amazing, filling myself with plants, spending more time in nature and less time sitting at a desk, watching more inspiring content rather than shit TV... that I began to move more naturally and feel epic. I basically spontaneously started running/lifting because my 'diet' made me feel so good. Just one small change in what you consume/do on the daily can be a catalyst for MASSIVE change.
Why would I miss meat when bananas, nuts & peanuts, big bowls of rice/stir fry/pasta/sweet potatoes, smoothies w/ protein powder and greens TASTE BETTER than meat, make me feel incredible and support an awesome lifestyle. 🌱
If I really missed It that much, I'd just eat the vegan version (say for instance, southern fried tofu or a veggie hot dog) and even though that is still healthier than the meat version, it still isn't health promoting. So why would I go even worse than that and eat the meat version?
And Sure, someone could sit next to me on the tube with a steak burrito or a bag of KFC and I can see where the appeal is. I bet it tastes good, I get it (mainly because of the plant foods/spices added to the meat 😂) but is it worth me feeling crap? Is there any point in it? Do I NEED it? Is it even that good or are we just over rating it based on the fact it's advertised in front of us or our friends also like it? Maybe even do we consume it because we are a 'weird vegan' if we don't? Is it Worth an environmental footprint? Worth killing an animal? Nope.
I'm not just 'fine' with my fruits, veggies, nuts seeds and grains, I'm AWESOME.
Unplanned moments are always better than planned ones ✨✨
Since I was young I had this obsession with the sky and the stars. The planets, the moon, the solar systems and everything that sat in our universe.
Whenever I thought about it, I felt so small. And anything I was thinking about at the time (mostly tests) seemed so pointless when we compared how big we were to everything in the universe.
I’ve not used it much recently, but when I was in Jaiselmer, lying in the desert, under the stars, it got me thinking about it all again.
It brought that piece of me back.
Now that I’m going through a few tougher moments, it reminds me that perhaps the problem is not the problem. The problem is the incredible amount of over-thinking I’m doing with the problem. In the grand scheme of it all, what really matters in this life?
Let it go and be free.

Peanut butter French toast for weekend brunch, anyone?

I'm still perfecting the recipe for these but will definitely share once I'm happy with it! This was one of my favourite breakfasts when I was younger, and it's been super fun to create a vegan version of it with simple ingredients. Let me know - what's your favourite meal to start the weekend? Keeping it short as I have a lot to do this evening, but I hope you’re all having a lovely Saturday!
Going into the new week like 😁
Last week was awesome, hanging out with mates in Wales and getting balls deep in nature, so despite dislocating my shoulder and being forced to wear a sling for the next few weeks, I'm not letting it dampen my spirits!
Could've been worse and now I get to try out some alternative training methods to stay in shape while I'm disabled. Excited to come up with some #onearmworkout
/s which I'll share later.
When sh*t hits the fan, no point sitting around miserable and covered in sh*t. Gotta get up, turn off the fan, ascertain how the sh*t got on the fan, probably do some mopping, have a shower, burn your clothes, make lemonade, come up with a better analogy, and realise that there's no bad situation that can't be made better with a positive, determined attitude. Chin up!

Who's up for some blueberry- & vanilla nicecream with chocolate, roasted almonds and popcorn? 😋💜🍿 I woke up in winter wonderland today ❄️🌨️ but still had nicecream for breakfast 😂. I'm one of these people who would rather freeze than not have nicecream in winter 😜 ..what about you?
I had a lovely weekend with friends and my family! My friend celebrated her birthday with vegan raclette on Saturday, we had breakfast in a cat café together on Sunday morning and then we celebrated my uncle's birthday in the afternoon. So much quality time ✨. I'm super grateful to have such wonderful friends and family ❤️. Hope you had a great weekend, too!

Wie wär's mit Blaubeer- & Vanille Nicecream mit Schoki, gerösteten Mandelsplittern und Popcorn? 😋💜🍿Heute bin ich im Winterwunderland aufgewacht ❄️🌨️ aber zum Frühstück gab's trotzdem Nicecream 😂. Ich gehöre zu den Leuten, die lieber frieren, als im Winter auf Nicecream zu verzichten 😜 ..wie sieht's mit euch aus?
Ich hatte ein tolles Wochenende mit Freunden und meiner Familie! Meine Freundin hat am Samstag ihren Geburtstag mit veganem Raclette gefeiert, am Sonntag Morgen waren wir im Katzencafé frühstücken und am Nachmittag war ich bei der Family, den Geburtstag von meinem Onkel feiern.

I’m too busy with living my life to care about people that are talking shit about me. And so should you!
It’s not selfish or arrogant, every human should think that way.
The people that are talking behind your back are the ones who aren’t able to think that way, they’re the ones who aren’t happy with their life.
If you don’t wanna be like that then
a) care more about your own life
b) don’t talk shit about others
c) don’t give a shit on others stupid opinions
Listen to constructive criticism, but not to every opinion that someone has on you, which is usually only there to hurt you.
Take care about yourself. You’re important and you matter. If you’re happy with how you look, then don’t change it - embrace it. If you’re happy with what you’re doing - keep going!
That’s by the way a real walking shot. Usually you pretend to walk for these shots, funny that the snapshot turned out like that.

💦FULL BODY WORKOUT💦
I finished the first phase of my program early last week which meant I pretty much did whatever I felt like for the rest of the week! I actually much prefer a structured training routine but it was fun to take it easy! Here’s what I did on Sunday:
1️⃣ Overhead Press
2️⃣ Pull Ups
4️⃣ Dual Pulley Lat Pull Down
5️⃣ Supinated Grip Inverted Rows
6️⃣ Paused Goblet Squat
7️⃣ DB Stiff Leg Deadlift
So I officially started my new block today!! 🎉 Walked into the gym with a super positive mindset, hit a damn PR for my bench & just overall feeling so motivated!!! So grateful to my coach @fnf25
for all his knowledge, guidance and motivation, here’s to a new phase of gainzzz 💪🏼
I felt a little embarrassed having this photo taken in the gym, but I thought it was time for a physique check. This is only the second time I've posed for a photo in a gym, for about 30 years.
Two things surprise people about my training and diet. Firstly, I don't lift weights. I only do Calisthenics (bodyweight) exercise, as I enjoy it a lot more.
Do you enjoy bodyweight exercises...or am I the only one? Which exercise is your favourite?
Secondly, I get all my protein from plants 🌱which have helped me to recover faster between workouts.
SWEET POTATO PIE BARS😁😁😁. INGREDIENTS
For the Filling:
4 cups Sweet Potato, peeled & diced (about 2 medium)
½ cup Unsweetened Non-Dairy Milk (I used Soy)
½ cup Maple Syrup
3 tbsp Arrowroot Powder*
1 tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
For the Crust:
1 cup Pecans
1 cup Rolled Oats
2 tbsp Flax + 5 tbsp Filtered Water
3/4 tsp Salt
Preheat the Oven to 350F. Add the diced Sweet Potatoes to a Vegetable Steamer or a Pot + Colander combination with 3″ of water. Cover and steam for 15 minutes, or until fork tender.
In the meantime, prepare the base layer for the Bars. Mix 2 tbsp of Ground Flax with 5 tbsp of Filtered Water in a small bowl and set aside to let thicken. Add the Pecans, Rolled Oats, and Salt to a Food Processor and process until a fine crumble forms.
Once the Flax Egg has thickened, add it to the Pecan and Oat mixture and pulse until well combined; the mixture should form a sticky “dough.” Press the dough into a greased or lined 9×9″ baking tray; I like to use a spatula to make sure it is really packed down and even. Quickly rinse out the Food Processor, then return it to its base.
Add the Steamed Sweet Potato to the Food Processor with the remaining ingredients, and process until thick and smooth. Spread this mixture over top of the Pecan and Oat crumble, using a spatula again to even out the top.
Place the baking tin in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes; let cool for at least 30 minutes before removing from the pan and slicing. Top as desired (I like to serve mine with some Coco Whip and a Pecan), and store leftovers in the fridge for up to one week.

Anyone who knows me will find it hard to believe that I gave up coffee. I used to drink about 5 cups a day to combat sluggishness. What I didn’t understand at that time is that the sluggishness I experienced was due to my diet and poor nutrition choices.
I replaced coffee with Yerba Mate tea. I know, I know, some people do not like tea, but hear me out! Yerba Mate tea has so many benefits and has a liking to coffee in taste if you mix the right ingredients!
Yerba Mate provides energy without the jitters and without the crash 😵 it provides a similar alertness and wakefulness to coffee.
It stimulates the production of dopamine in a natural way , improving your mood, memory and alertness. It provides sharper attention and focus.
It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals! Yerba mate can also boost the immune system.
It’s been historically used medicinally for weight loss, as a digestive tonic, as a stimulant, for depression and much more.
It helps keep your heart healthy.
I love to mix my Yerba Mate with Carob Powder. Carob Powder has a soft chocolatey, nutty flavor that thickens the tea up a bit. I also use a splash of non-dairy milk and VOILA! My morning magic in a cup!🤩 #vegan #veganrecipes #veganfood #vegandinner #letscookvegan #veganfoodshare #veganmeals #vegansofig #veganlifestyle

20 chin-ups or nah?
I’ve decided Monday’s are not going to be dull. .
Instead Monday = Funday. 😝
In that spirit I thought I would give Max Pull-ups a go and see how many I could get.
They are not perfect, but come at me bro! 😝💪🏽
for the support! 😁👌🏽

Los helados 'Magnum' también se apuntan al veganismo 🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦 ¿Es una simple moda o realmente un cambio de paradigma en la forma de comer relacionado con la sostenibilidad y el respeto a los animales? Independientemente de cuál sea la versión que elijamos, es evidente que la oferta de alimentos veganos -o de versiones veganas de productos ya existentes, mejor dicho- no para de crecer.
Y tras McDonald's, Ikea o algunas cadenas de pizzerías que se han apuntado al veganismo lanzando hamburguesas o perritos calientes vegetales y aptos para este tipo de dieta, ahora la tendencia llega también al mundo de los helados. En realidad, hace ya unos cuantos veranos que los helados veganos triunfan cada vez más, pero ahora son también las grandes marcas las que apuestan por ofrecer sus productos libres de leche y otros productos animales. "Para todos aquellos que han decidido elegir este estilo de vida veggie, Magnum ha creado Magnum Vegan, una línea de helados apta tanto para veganos como para quienes llevan una dieta flexible", explican desde Unilever. Un producto que, por cierto, se suma a otros helados de la compañía, como los Cornetto, que ya contaban con su porpia versión vegana.
Disponible en versión clásica y almendrada, y con el certificado de la European Vegetarian Union, según detallan sus responsables, los lácteos han sido sustituidos por proteina de guisantes que se acompaña de vainilla y de una cobertura de chocolate crujiente.
Eso sí, desde la multinacional parecen tener clara la respuesta a la pregunta incial, puesto que no dudan en hablar de productos "desarrollados en base a las tendencias alimentarias actuales". Unas tendencias que también incluyen helados sin lactosa, sin gluten y con la etiqueta BIO. [ Vía: https://www.20minutos.es/noticia/3474124/0/magnum-vegan-helados-veganos/ ]
We have become a carbophobic society, and through no fault of our own. The story creates a hero and creates a villain. Inundated with misleading information, and all you have to do is provide doubt, and one is almost certain to remain the course to which they began. We need to decipher what is essential and what is not essential. And intuitively - we know plants are protective, we also know this by deduction. We look for quick answers in the short term - and progress can be made using quick methods in the short game - but it’s the long term we need to be investigating. We don’t need to know what our ancestors ate - but more look at our lifestyle patterns over the last 200 years? Which gives a clear picture. Are they working? For the people? By a process of deduction - If you took away the plants from any diet - what would that diet leave you with? Next, could you live off those remains alone? The plants are essential. They’re the source for optimal health. The most optimal diet for human health and longevity, along with every other great ape comes from the ground. 💪🏼🦍🌿 #destroythemyth
Yesterday something in my head just „clicked“ into motion. I feel like I experienced a freakin epiphany today 😅
I was so tired of feeling down and depressed and I thought of the times when I wasn‘t feeling that way. And guess what!? It‘s at the times when I push myself most in the gym and with my nutrition.
The past weeks I just screwed it! I ate what ever I wanted to eat, I didn‘t go to the gym because I just didn‘t feel like it. I didn‘t do my cardio. I didn‘t do intermittent fasting. I slept into the late morning. I took afternoon naps and watched a ton of shows on TV.
Sounds great, huh?
But it didn‘t make me feel great. I felt a little more miserable with every passing day. Yes, I have been sick for a few weeks but that‘s no excuse for my lazy behavior over the last weeks and months.
TODAY I set my alarm to 7am. I counted 5-4-3-2-1 @melrobbinslive
and just stood up, had a coffee and went straight to my stationary bike. It was dark, it was cold, I didn‘t feel like it. But afterwards... maaaan... I’ve been feeling amazing!
I took a shower. Felt even better and marched to the gym. Freezing and windy outside. No matter what.
What an experience! 😍
Sometimes the things you don‘t want to do are the things you just NEED to do to feel happy and fulfilled - even if you THINK they are making you miserable, they don‘t.

La belle idée du jour —> Parce-que dehors il fait pas beau, il fait froid, j’avais besoin de pancakes aux chocolat réconfortant! 😋
El antojo de pizza que se acabó hoy 🌱🍕🌱
Tiene salsa de tomate, cebolla morada, zapallo italiano, champiñones portobello, tempeh de garbanzos de @fermentos_chile
, rúcula y (no) quesito mantecoso de @pepilucasavegana.
Este no lo había probado y queda buenísimo!!!! Me gustó mucho como se derrite y la textura, no parece plástico como los de aceite palma o puro aceite de coco.
Que todos sepan que podemos comer delicioso, sano y sin ingredientes de origen animal 💪🏻💚
