7Famark saidThere was a vegan episode of Cupcake Wars on the other day. . .those looked like the nastiest cupcakes I've ever seen in my life.
Chloe won though, didn't she? Those cupcakes were amazing and having made vegan cupcakes for cafes and events in Sydney I can honestly say nobody has ever said mine were 'nasty'!
I think it's a given that building muscle takes discipline, for everyone surely, not just vegans. I'm just wondering if there are any other vegans here? Though I guess there wouldn't be too many.
I think it's hard to comment on being vegan if you're not one... Give it a try ;)
Hmm I disagree with your logic there. I can comment on being a crack or heroine addict without trying it.
Building muscle is already a very difficult thing to do, I guess a part of me just doesn't understand why someone would want to make it even more difficult.
No, you can't authentically comment on 'being' a crack addict, because you aren't one. You can comment on crack addiction as a idea or concept, but someone who has the addiction may take offence if you start talking about the difficulties of that addiction. Because you honestly don't know.
And I suppose I don't actually think of it as more difficult. Really, my original post was to start a dialogue between other non-meat/vegan dieters to see what works best for them. In the same way that any 2 people building muscle may talk about their diet, I never said it was difficult, nor do I think it is. Since becoming vegan I feel healthier, more energised and the cost of my groceries has gone significantly down to boot.
But something else I'd like to ask is if people use soy-based protein, if they use powder at all, I'm not sure if I should start including it in my diet.
