I went vegan for 2 weeks

Hey everyone! So my fiancé and I have decided to go vegan for 2 weeks. I chose 2 weeks because it seemed like it only 2 weeks based on a documentary I watched on Netflix called “What the Health” to show any benefits. 2 weeks is actually a short amount of time too. I see that there may be additional benefits without consuming animal products or dairy. Some benefits include:

  1. Reduces the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  2. Lowers cholesterol
  3. Lowers blood pressure
  4. May reverse prostrate cancer if in early stages
  5. Reduced saturated fats since you’re not eating any meat
  6. Lower BMI
  7. More energy
  8. Weight loss

I’ll post my journey on this blog. I purchased Silk nut milk that comes with 10 grams of protein and I also bought Musclepharm’s new like products which includes organic plant based protein and even a vegan pre-work out. Stay tuned!

Jan 1 to 19

   
 
Hello everyone, just wanted to show you what I’ve accomplished in 20 days!! So on the left was November 2015 and the right was January 19th. November through January I didn’t work out at all, I just didn’t really watch my diet and I exploded. In January I changed it around: I made my meals in advance, I did cardio 20 minutes a day for 4 days, and I lifted 4 days too. I haven’t done anything crazy, the only thing now is I’m actually eating nutrient dense food and not just any crap. So in 3 weeks I was able to lose 8 pounds and as you can see some body fat. I’m slowly getting to where I want to be. I’ll keep posting more progress pictures and let me know if you have any questions! Ruthlessphysique@gmail.com

TURKEY AND ZUCCHINI QUINOA PASTA CASSEROLE WITH MOZZARELLA

Here is the recipe for the delicious casserole I made. 20160104_174751

Yummy!

 

 

What you will need: 

LEAN GROUND TURKEY 32 OZ


QUINOA PASTA 8 OZ


MOZZARELLA 1/8 CUP


RED ONION 1/2


ZUCCHINI 2 CUPS


BELL PEPPER 1


CHICKEN BROTH 1 CUP


TOMATO PASTE 2 6OZ CANS

  1. Set oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Boil quinoa pasta, rinse with warm water, and set aside.
  3. Set a skillet on medium-high heat and lightly spray with coconut oil. Toss in red onion and granulated or freshly minced garlic. Cook in the skillet until the onions are nearly translucent.
  4. Add in the ground turkey meat. Stir and cook with a wooden spoon or spatula. Chop the turkey and separate it as it cooks.
  5. Once the turkey is nearly finished cooking, add zucchini, tomato paste, tomatoes, bell peppers, and one cup chicken broth.
  6. Stir slowly and reduce heat slightly. Cover and cook until the mixture begins to simmer.
    *Tip: If your skillet is large enough, add in cooked pasta. If not, continue on to step 7.
  7. Evenly divide the pasta among the five mini pans. Pour the mixture on top of the pasta.
  8. Pour the remaining chicken broth over the individual pans to ensure moisture.
  9. Top each with 1/8 cup shredded mozzarella.
  10. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 375F. Once finished, allow to cool. Cover with foil and freeze until you’re ready to eat.
  11. Reheat in the oven.

Makes 5 servings. I found these recipes online and are pretty easy to follow. Enjoy!

Healthy Snack Ideas

1. Try loading a few celery sticks with 1 tablespoon of any nut butter (almond, cashew, walnut).
2. Edamame makes a great high-protein snack (one cup of beans yields 17g of protein!). Buy them fresh and steam for about 6 minutes, or use the pre-cooked frozen variety and briefly microwave to defrost (about 2 minutes) before chowing down.
3. 1 medium apple, sliced, with 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
4. Hummus Dippers: Put 2 tablespoons of your favorite hummus in the bottom of the container, stick a handful of vegetable sticks (carrots, celery, and snow peas are a great mix) vertically in the hummus, screw on the top, and throw in a purse or gym bag for an easy, on-the-go, super-healthy snack.
5. Hard-Boiled Eggs: Inexpensive and loaded with nutrients, eggs are one of the best ways to get a healthy dose of protein. Try hard boiling and pre-peeling a dozen at the start of the week and throw one in a small Tupperware container each day for an easy on-the-go snack.
