"Vegetarian diets are associated with several health benefits, but whether a vegetarian or vegan diet is beneficial for athleticperformance has not yet been defined. Based on the evidence in the literature that diets high in unrefined plant foods are associated withbeneficial effects on overall health, lifespan, immune function, and cardiovascular health, such diets likely would promote improved athleticperformance as well. In this article, we review the state of the literature on vegetarian diets and athletic performance, discuss preventionof potential micronutrient deficiencies that may occur in the vegan athlete, and provide strategies on meeting the enhanced caloric and protein needs of an athlete with a plant-based diet"

This is one of those posts that get me unfollowers. The happy-go-lucky attitude is not always popular in tumblr, haha, but since I’m kind’a missing anon hate, here we go!

So yeah, a short while ago while running I twisted my ankle, I stopped for a few minutes to make sure that everything was fine and after some jumping drills I decided that I was ok to go.

But what did I think the rest of my session? (‘cause yeah, I ran the remaining 8kms back home), well… instead of being whining I was thinking that this little accident probably would prevent me for having a worse one. For example; just because of that II switched my planned path, What if something bad was about to happen to me on the original path? uh uh uh?!

But it doesn’t end there, ‘cause now that I feel more the discomfort I’m thinking that probably the rest of my running schedule for the week will not be possible, But I’m not pissed of… I’m just like.. “well for sure it will be the best for me”, don’t know exactly how but I’m pretty sure it shall be. I guess that’s what most religious people would call “faith”.

As my dear buddhist friend told me a week ago; When you drop a rock from a cliff it gets down fast, it’s strong and if it hits someone it will hurt, when you drop a feather, this one will take its time, and it’ll probably end up in some other place so far away from the cliff. Most people nowadays want to be the rock; they want their things to work only the way they want. But you better be a feather and let the wind take you wherever you need to be.

Btw right now She’s in NYC doing some shopping, How buddhist is that? hahaha

Have a good one people!

Just came back from today’s run…

And I twisted my ankle. Hehe, it wasn’t something serious ‘cause I was able to continue my session. And now I’m doing the RICE drill. But I can feel a little discomfort.

Ironically I was thinking this morning how lucky I’ve been these months for running injury free.

Funniest part is that in 3 weeks is my first race.

Haha, life and its strange ways.

Kaskade - How it is (Original Mix)

This song in my nightly run.

Time to get a bath and then go to sleep. Enjoy and good night!

Quinoa Curry.
oh my, it’s so delicious!, I was telling to Travoltino that this has been another perk of going vegan; I’ve cooked things that otherwise I’d never tried.

It has quinoa, curry (duh), raw spinach and broccoli, tomatoes, avocado and tofu. I couldn’t get original Rotis (indian tortilla) but this homemade whole wheat tortilla tastes pretty close to it.

And as a digestif I’m having some old-school organic green tea.

Now let’s get some rest for a couple of hours and then I’ll run ‘till dusk. Quinoa Curry.

Decoding Your Restaurant Menu [medium]

""Isn’t man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice, foxes and dingoes - by the million in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billion and eats them. This in turn kills man by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal- health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year, sends out cards praying for "Peace on Earth.""

Question: How many vegans does it take to change a light bulb? 
Answer: It takes two. One to change the light bulb, and the other to explain to onlookers where we get our protein.

DO YOU KNOW HIM?

He is the producer of The Simpsons, which has decided to leave his vast fortune, before dying, to organizations that fight for animal rights and against world hunger.

Sam Simon, 58, retired from The Simpsons in 1993, but it still gets tens of millions in royalties every season.

Simon has set up a food bank in Los Angeles, which serves only vegan food, and turned his Malibu mansion on a dog shelter, where animals are taken are about to be slaughtered by local shelters.

The last month was dedicated to give freedom to some zoo and circus animals, and donated money for more than twenty years to environmental causes.

After being diagnosed with colon cancer, spread to her liver and kidneys, Simon has met with its financial advisors to leave everything to his foundation after his death.
