Excellent substitut de viande pour tous les végétariens. Une fois réhydraté, ça a un peu la consistance de morceaux de viande hachée ou de morceaux de veau. Délicieux cuisinés dans une sauce tomate façon goulash.

Et le gros avantage c'est la teneur en protéines absolument énorme (45% de protéines en moyenne) pour un prix relativement modique.

NOTE: Ceci n'est pas une pub pour Markal malgré les apparences, il existe sûrement un produit équivalent chez d'autres marques.

Ran 50 miles in the past 8 days. I was cruising man... Felt like I was flying above the ground in my NB MR10V2. Running makes me happy see, so I was indulging, every other day out of the house after work, even though I was coming home at 9PM. I can't precisely pinpoint the point where it all went to shit, probably after about 10 miles yesterday and a half-mile downhill on hard concrete when I felt my Achilles' tendon squeaking, trying its best to grab my attention. at each foot strike. I, on the other hand, needed the miles, needed the rush, needed to ignore the signs cause it made me feel good at this precise point in time. So I piled on for another 7 miles, the tendon and the muscles still active and stretched from the effort.

Now it's T+24h and my AT is sore as f*ck, I'll have to stay sidelined for the foreseeable weeks, nurse it back to full health before I can get back to running and experiencing that unique pawing of the ground when you feel that the ground is moving below your feet and not the opposite.

This post to remind all you runners to take good care of your body at this time of year, the best months of the year are coming and you want to be fit to enjoy all the goodness it will bring.

Listen to your body, always remember that you can always run some more a few days later.

Best of regards to y'all.

+Reginold Miller A full year to fully recover? I sure hope it won't take that long, that'd be a MASSIVE bummer, damn...

I'm usually not a big fan of brand promotion, be it direct or indirect, but you really gotta give to Salomon Trail Running, their Youtube channel is absolutely fantastic. All the running videos are beautifully shot, awe-inducing and inspiring. If you like running and manage to watch a few vids without feeling like hopping in your shoes for a run, you're made of stone #trailrunning  #salomon

True, Solomon has been making the best looking running videos out there. I always feel the urge to get up and go when I see one.

For all people interested, I started running with the New Balance Minimus MR10V2 about a week ago and the shoes are absolutely fantastic (with minor drawbacks, see "cons" below). I was using a pair of Asics GT-2160 before and the transition is a blessing. The shoes are much lighter, feel like gloves around the feet and yet provide some slight cushioning at strike time (4mm drop).

Those minimal shoes are kind of like the IBM Model M of running shoes, they provide a typical TAP TAP TAP as you put a foot in front of the other in a smooth motion, the material of the top part of the shoe is very breathable (my feet sweat a lot and that's very nice) and the shoes are extremely light (6.2oz / 180g). My stride feels more dynamic and as someone that does not heel strike, I feel that they're a natural fit. They can easily be used without socks at all if you're luckier than I am in terms of sweating profusely :)

In terms of cons, I'd say that the shoe looks overall way less solid than my old pair of Asics (less durable and more fragile) but I guess that's the downside of the mesh aspect of it. I feel that the price is bit steep for the quality (the finish at the seams doesn't look very polished). The laces also give me chills when I pull on them to tie them, in fear that I'll break the lacing attachs and holes.

Overall, I'd recommend those shoes to all the people that want to get into more minimal running shoes but are like I am either afraid of those overly minimal Luna sandals or outraged at the price of the Vibrams.

Just be cautious if you're used to more cushioned shoes with lots of air and gel and padding, you WILL feel the transition in your Achilles' tendon and calves.

Tap tap tap is a good way to describe it. I like how minimal shoes naturally enhance good running form. I've got several pairs from the Minimus line, zero to 4mm drop, trail and road.

Cannot wait for In the High Country starring Anton Krupicka. 

The highlight of the summer. Or the fall. Or winter. Or whenever the h*ll it's finally released.

An absolute must-read if you're both a vegetarian/vegan and an amateur athlete, at whatever level it might be, the excellent book by Scott Jurek (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Jurek), the 7 times winner of the Western States 100 (and more). A fantastic dive into his life, his nutrition choices, his passion, his philosophy and his approach of running and overall overwhelming of hardships.

He also provides about 20 vegan recipes extra-packed with protein, carbs, vitamins, natural anti-inflammatories and more that any athelete will enjoy.

Great book.

Je demandais dans un précédent post dans ce groupe comment se procurer l'okra (ou gombo) en France. J'ai pris l'habitude d'en cuisiner alors que j'étais en Amérique du Nord pour son goût et sa texture.

Délicieux consommé cru (à la fois croquant et gluant / collant), il permet également de servir d'agent épaississant à vos soupes, plats de légumineuses, sauces, etc en raison de ses propriétés mucilagineuses. L'okra est riche en vitamine C, calcium et potassium.

Il semblerait après avoir fait le tour de tous les forums végétariens du net que l'okra peut se trouver dans nombre de magasins "exotiques" (boutiques antillaises en particulier). Préférer les capsules jeunes et bien vertes. L'unique inconvénient étant bien sûr le transport associé, l'okra nécessitant un climat chaud et humide pour pousser.

Bonjour tout le monde. Revenant de l'Ouest Canadien où tout était à disposition pour mon alimentation, nombre de produits ont disparu de mes repas depuis mon retour en France (j'habite en région parisienne) et j'aimerais remédier au problème. Si quelqu'un sait où trouver les produits suivants, j'en serais ravi :

- Graines de chia
- Okra / gombo
- Farine de teff
- Chou frisé (que je connaissais sous le nom de kale)
- Chou cavalier (que je connaissais sous le nom de Collard greens)
- Tempeh

Merci beaucoup :)

Effectivement. Merci pour l'info sur les graines de chia, je passerai une commande au plus vite. Dommage pour le tempeh, c'était devenu un incontournable de mon alimentation et comme je suis coureur longue distance et vegan, je ne peux pas me permettre de négliger mes apports en protéines.

Je me satisfais au moins du fait que le quinoa est devenu facile à trouver dans tous les supermarchés (comme l'amaranthe et les produits dérivés du soja).

Café du Soleil was the deciding factor in my becoming a vegan. After eating there a few times and having vegetarians brunches and meals, I realized that a plant-based diet didn't have to be boring or depressing. Their veggie burger is a must-have that I still have cravings for even though I am now back to my native Parisian suburb. I would happily recommend this place to anyone, it's an extremely nice and soothing place to eat in the middle of one of the best neighbourhoods in Vancouver.
