    1. I was just going to post the same thing! Hahahahaha! Did you over diddle your tomatoes?๐Ÿ˜น

    2. @Simnett Nutrition I like vegan foods I have plant based burritos for breakfast everyday @6am drink bananas and blueberries and rice milk

  1. Good morning I bought your book for recipes. How often do you recommend eating and what portion size. I’m a gf plant based vegan no sugar. I weight 93 lbs, I want to gain lean muscle and gain about 15 lbs I’m 5’1”. Thank you!

    1. Hey, thank you! Okay, first you need to figure our your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) http://www.plantspace.org has a good one. This is your BMR (basal metabolic rate) with the amount of energy you will burn for your activity level combined. That is how many calories you will need in a day to maintain your current weight. If you want to put on muscle you will want to eat in a slight surplus but nothing crazy. A couple hundred calories should be enough. Then I guess you need to track your food in a program like cronometer.com and get an idea of how many calories you are getting and try to get it close to that couple hundred calorie suruplus. I do think it is possible to build muscle by eating right around maintenance, especially in the beginning of the journey.

      Then just monitor your energy, strength, and how you feel as far as if you are gaining the right kind of weight. We all utilize calories a little differently, so you might need to adjust as you go. Ultimately you want to be able to eat the proper amount intuitively without having to track.

      Once you understand portion sizing for yourself, it will become second nature.

      I also don’t focus too much on protein, if you get enough calories and get a good source of protein at most meals, like beans, lentils, tofu, tempeh, quinoa, protein powder, etc, you will get enough to build muscle!

      Long rant, sorry, hope it makes sense. Best of luck. Since you bought the book, join the SN community on Facebook, they are very helpful.

    2. @Simnett Nutrition that you for your informative answer I really appreciate it! I look forward to using the tools you directed me to! I am in the fb page. thank you for your time and support. Go team Vegan ๐Ÿ˜Ž!

  2. Diggin’ the plants and vibes all around. I’m interested in checking out your content.

  3. Is the Vivo that you mention have any soy ingredients at all? ?
    I want to get a vegan protein powder without any soy in it at all.

    1. Not a weird question. I totally get it. We used to have quite a limited budget and would not purchase things like vegan cheese, avocados, expensive sprouted grain bread, plant milk, all organic, etc. so it can be done very cheaply. But now we definitely do spend a bit more and enjoy some of the finer things. But we eat good food and don’t mind investing in our health! Canada is also expensive for groceries compared to the US and food prices have increased quite a bit lately. With all that being said, we don’t really track anymore, but just giving a quick tally in my head I would say between $600-$750 month for the both of us. We also rarely eat at restaurants so that is a big expenditure we save.

    2. @Simnett Nutrition yes Iโ€™m a broke college student and Iโ€™m trying to eat as healthy as possible but unfortunately I canโ€™t always afford to. Iโ€™ll try and stick to the basics. Thanks for your response!!! โค๏ธ

  4. I am trying to eat less meat. this video is perfect. so confused about cooking different beans. never cooked beans

  5. Im not vegan but I was looking for high protein breakfast ideas without having to get meat with my breakfast

  6. Waste of time!! The title says something and he wastes our time with other stuff! Ridiculous.

  7. This changed a life of a vegan boy. Now I have many knowledge on how to take care of my body and eating things. Thank you๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

  8. I am starting my vegan diet in the next 3 days and have seen a good number of videos. Your video is the only one that has me excited about starting this new journey. The foods look so good. You also showed that you can look lean and strong with a plant based diet. Thank you !

  9. Wow! What a cool trail! I’m excited to try your recipes! Sadly, I’m looking forward to fall/winter, so hot here in Texas, can’t really be out.

    1. @Simnett Nutrition LOL! I don’t know when I became so ADD. Keep doing your thing! You’re doing great!

    1. @Simnett Nutrition I mean it in a good way. You broke the traditional way of making tofu. So it’s interesting to see. Wholefoods has a new Tofu product: organic Yuba sheets, you can try them, it’s very good, fresh with excellent texture.

    1. I never track! I do have some videos where I have. If you search “Simnett nutrition Full day of eating nutrient analysis” or something along those lines, those videos have it. I think it’s gotta be somewhere around 70c-15p-15f … sometimes fat and protein move around a bit.

  10. I tried vegan and went back to eating meat and now have gone back to vegan. The difference in how I felt was so profound. Great video

  11. when your stove comes into the frame i thought this video must be from the 80’s..but i guess there was no yt back then, huh?
