-Run on your toes.
-Pump arms vigorously.
-Drive knees upwards. You want your foot to hit at about a 90 degree angle as you go up the hill.
-Breathe in your nose and out your mouth. Try to regulate it into a slow, relaxed, rhythm.
-Relax your shoulders- they’re probably going to be tensed up.
-Control yourself on the downhill to conserve energy. It is easy to go too fast.

The most common question I get as a vegan is “But where do you get your protein from?” I think we have been brainwashed to believe that meat is the superfood for humans. Actually, plants have all of the proteins, vitamins, and minerals that we could ever need. The only unique biomolecule in meat as compared to plants is saturated fat. Of course, you have to eat many different colors and types of plants to get a complete source of protein. But STILL. Plants have protein too!

Being vegan is such a blast. It’s as if I have been reborn, learning a new way of living and meeting so many incredible people. I truly believe age is all relative, and it’s all in your mind. New experiences are what keep us young, wild, and free. Here are some of the great vegan treats and eats I have enjoyed this spring!
Random trip to Corpus Christi to get vegan chocolate at 10 PM.
Tofurky pizza is the most amazing thing ever. They are quite pricey ($4.99), so I need to make these at home more often.
I love using sprouts in my cooking. They add an unexpected crunch to a normally soft texture.
This is like eating a brownie and drinking milk with it. Warm the LARABAR in the microwave if you like warm brownies

I think it’s crazy that we complain about small serving sizes when dining out. And that being active, fit, and health conscious is not as common in our society as it should be!
And we can go on to complain about everything that is not right about the health status of American society. But what can we do to change it? Implement government programs? That costs money. The only thing we can do that is in our control is fix the problem ourselves. Eat and cook all your meals at home, get a gym membership, play outside for an hour everyday, and eat more vegetables. THAT’S ALL IT TAKES. Don’t wait for some diet program, miracle weight loss drug, or some doctor who has a vested interest in you taking prescription drugs to make you change.
