@vegan_nutritionfacts 🌱Wait hold up... Plant-based foods contain iron? I thought that was only in #meat ? Keep reading for more... 🤓 *All values are based off a 100g raw portion comparison.
Although Iron seems to be touted as a common issue amongst #vegans , in actuality it has been blown of out proportion by hearsay. Non-heme sources of iron in plant-based options can be an excellent way to get your daily value % and in many cases can surpass their animal-based counterparts.
🤓In saying that, this is why I wanted to highlight and compare a very popular iron source amongst individuals who eat animal-based foods – raw, grass-fed Beef VS a popular plant-based source – raw White Beans.
🤔What is Iron anyhow?... Iron is an essential mineral as a component of hemoglobin. #Hemoglobin is a substance in red blood cells that carries #oxygen from your #lungs and transports it throughout your body. So needless to say, you need iron to have healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells.
White beans are certainly not the only option when it comes to plant-based iron sources. Feel free to #experiment and have fun with the following sources to get your iron fix…
🔸And the list literally goes on and on…
It is very important to remember that absorption of iron is key and we must try our best to ensure we are mindful of the following…
🔹Eat your iron rich foods with foods that also contain Vitamin C (very easy to do given high #vitaminC counts in many plant based foods).
🔹Cook in iron pots with something acidic. simmering i.e. tomato sauce. This can increase the iron content significantly in your food.
🔹Be mindful of consuming #calcium and tannins (coffee and tea) alongside your iron rich foods as it can reduce #iron absorption.

When asked what it felt like going in for my transplant, I can only describe it as standing on the edge of a cliff being told to jump in the hope that you will be saved and have a much better life than the one you are living. To trust the people around you and hope you will make it to the other side. It was the hardest yet best decision I’ve ever made. I guess the only option I had in some ways . I remember when they wheeled me up to theatre and waiting outside with Greg. I’ve never felt so calm and focused. Something came over me the moment they told me the transplant was going ahead. I knew I had to face all my fears and get through this in order to get my life back. To face my fear of never seeing Greg again, marrying him, having a family, growing old. To never seeing my family and friends again, going on adventures, travelling, walking my dogs, beach days, sunsets, laughing, crying, living. It all just clicked within me and I just KNEW I was going to live. I was going to live because I gave myself no option.
Today marks 4 months since my transplant. I am currently in Newcastle for my check up and all is still going great. It’s been such a surreal 4 months. I am so lucky to be here and living my life again in ways I never thought possible only a short period of time ago. Only months ago I was being pushed around in a wheelchair on 15 litres of oxygen. I’m always mindful of my angel donor and her family. Four months without their partner, mother, sister ,daughter and how incredibly tough yet brave of a decision they made on that day to give the gift of life to others. I just think it’s the most incredible thing to have done. Every morning I wake up and take a breath I think of her and thank her for what she has given me. I tell her every morning at least 5 things in my life I am grateful for every day. It really helps me check in with myself and be grateful for all that life has to offer. I am so thankful for this second shot at life. Happy Tuesday everyone x
Can #abs happen? #throwback to that freezing NY February in 2016 spent curious about personal strength & muscle #gains . Along with conquering pull-ups I wanted to see what would happen if I went 100% #sugarfree and focused on eating protein and tons of healthy fats & low carbs. Avocados, Butter, coconut oil, peanut butter, bison.... Couldn't get enough!
Along with this I conquered pull-ups with good form. Once one came, 2...3... Easily followed.
Now I'm here #daydreaming , 45 days away from going to Egypt to continue training #freediving . Currently reading #oxygen by William Trubridge (world record to 101m no fins) and again inspired to see what happens when we harvest our own #deepmotivation .
Доброе утро, куда подевалось ☀️ и 🌡️😒
К счастью для поднятия настроения у меня есть вот такая Массажная пенящаяся маска с активным кислородом "Персик" от @skinlite_official 🍑 Маска рассчитана на ✌️ раза👍
И ее удобно брать с собой в поездку или отпуск(не займет много места в багаже), так как она заменяет пенку ☁️ для лица😊
Что не мало важно с этой маской не нужно много времени.
🍑 Способ применения очень прост: сухими руками наносим на сухую кожу лица( это важно), избегая области глаз и губ. Массируем кожу кончиками пальцев 30-60 секунд до появления густой пены☁️. Все. Смываем теплой водой.
🍑 Аромат фруктовый, приятный. Консистенция сначала гелевая, затем становится ☁️.
🍑 Пенка глубоко проникает в кожу, очищая ее. В результате устранены загрязнения пор и отмершие клетки.
Экстракт персика увлажняет(во время того, как пенка на лице чувствуется свежесть 💦).
Папайя, зелёный чай и экстракт листьев бамбука смягчают кожу, делая ее нежной и гладкой.
🍑 Кожа чистая, нежная, приятная на ощупь, нет сухости и стянутости 👍
🍑 Однозначно буду брать такую маску ещё.
И сам процесс 😌 нравится, и настроение отличное 😀, и результат порадовал👍
Конечно, подойдёт и тем, у кого мало времени с утра или в отпуске.
🍑 Рекомендую с удовольствием 👌
Как вам такая экспресс- маска?
