For the lazy vegan baker, you can buy your own egg replacement. One good option: http://store.veganessentials.com/ener-g-......304.aspx

One more thing, I like to use whole wheat pastry flour for the banana bread. It's different from regular whole wheat flour.
I think it would probably work with amaranth flour or whatever if you have a wheat allergy, but I'm no baking chemist.

For non-vegetarians:
Whole wheat pastry flour also works great for cube-steaks.

I'm still getting over the baking trauma I suffered at about age 9 when I discovered thst unsweetened chocolate doesn't taste all that much like sweetened chocolate.

That's the age when I learned how to make my own chocolate syrup with the baking cocoa powder:
Equal parts cocoa powder and sugar- add hot water until it's syrup.
(Okay, this doesn't really qualify as a "healthy" recipe, but if you just put a little drizzle on that banana ice cream I talked about before then that's probably a fairly light treat. Especially in this heat.)

If you cut out breads and such and are still hungry, eat a lot of lentils (with a lot of garam masala or curry).
Also, you have to remember that veggies and meat are no were near as filling as bread or pasta, so you need to eat much larger portions than you are used to.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS
Also super easy (like all of my recipes) but SO good.

1)boil a lot of brussels sprouts.
2)halve or quarter them (depending on size and preference)
3)warm up some Olive oil in a pan and add some salt, pepper and fresh garlic or garlic powder.
.....wait until it smells really good.
4)add the chopped brussels sprouts. I usually make a lot so I usually add more olive oil and seasoning throughout
5) put in a bowl and chow down

4.5) <<optional>> pour just a little balsamic vinegar over those bad boys and you may well be in heaven.

Here's an interesting article on veganism and strength training by a bada** vegan dude.
http://www.mikemahler.com/online-library......ork.html
He recommends lot's of lentils too. That's where most of my protein comes from, although I am not vegan.

This guy is so bada** that he works out with 97lb. kettlebells!

I just started doing kettlebell workouts earlier this week. I'm just doing the motions with a 20lb. dumbell, but I'm almost ready to move up at which point I want to get a kettlebell.

I am familiar with Mike Mahler. He's all of the well known vegan strength trainer Smile

Tried to edit that last night but the maintenance started.

My old gym got kettlebells but they only went up to 35 pounds, which was just not challenging enough for me for pretty much anything but a couple of isolated shoulder movements.

Stones are still my favorite things to lift.

One cool thing that got left in my training area is this massive concrete block with a chain sticking out the middle of it. I've been deadlifting it and then trying to swing it back and forth by the chain. I think this might have some carryover to the weight for height.

Oil
Onion
Cloves of garlic (up to you how many you want)
Bit of fresh ginger
Kidney beans
Assorted veggies (up to you)

Peel and chop the onion, do the same with the garlic cloves. Heat up a skillet, pour in oil. Grate some ginger into the oil and let it fry while mixing for maybe a minute. Add chopped onion and garlic and keep stirring. When the onion is getting soft, add the drained kidney beans. Add the veggies and stir for a while. I love my veggies almost raw, but that's up to you.

For the veggies...I often use chopped carrots and celery, but you can use whatever you want.

Nice. Do you think using a little chili oil in there could be good too?

VINAGRETTE
I learned this when I was a kid, but most people I know haven't heard of it:

olive oil
balsamic vinegar (only!)
dijon mustard
crushed fresh garlic (I often cheat and use garlic powder

If the proportions are right it should all come together into a thick dressing. The mustard is the key to the thickness and if you are using fresh garlic you can make it as spicy or not as you like.

Well, there's one full meal Smile


Can you hint at the measurements? I want to make this but don't want to blow 2 or 3 tries getting it wrong, or end up with a quart and a half of it after trying to rebalance the mistakes.

Thanks!

It's approximately 1to 1 for the oil and vinegar.
Anywhere from 1-3 garlic cloves (probably just one, but I really like garlic).
I put a lot of mustard too; but start small and if it doesn't all come together when you stir it add a little more.

Let me know what you think Smile.

Those brussels sprouts sound really good too. B Sprouts are an underrated food that can be fantastic if done right.
Something I love on cooked vegetables is Bragg's seasoning. Pseudo-science from the company aside, that stuff tastes good.

I over-Dijonned it a tad, but threw in a Tsp. of Eucalyptus honey and it's great. This was easy, something to keep in the memory banks...thanks!

Eucalyptus honey?
I only get one day a week to have sweets, but I'll give a try on Sunday.


I just had some Brussels sprouts, but I was feeling lazy so after I boiled them (I boiled some onion slices with them) I just poured some olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic salt and mixed it all up. It was great.
Half way through I poured a little vinegar over it; ...it was okay, but better without.
