I think I may be "The Biggest Loser" because I am now hooked on this manipulative show! Since I found out that Bob Harper went Vegan, for the animals & his health (he was even the Spokesperson for a Farm Sanctuary Walk!) I have been a "Biggest Loser" convert. Bob's genetically high cholesterol dropped over 100 points after going vegan. Although, I was pretty surprised that they rarely even mention dietary choices, and when they do it's very '50s style "product placement" sort of manner. Lately though, at least they have had some ads for "Lara Bars" and other stuff that isn't just trash decorated as breakfast food. But then moments like when Bob Harper had the UnderDog team to his house for a Vegan Dinner make all the painful advertising and the insane commercial breaks prior to nail biting weigh-ins, well, worth it. Here are some of Bob Harper's Vegan Recipes that were featured when he had the team over for dinner.

Bob has also "tweeted" 24 hour "Vegan Challenges", inspiring people to try quitting all animal foods for 24 hours. I just discovered he has his own line of Supplements that are Vegan called Smart Success! Lactose, Dairy & Gluten Free! And here is a link to an interview with Bob Harper about being vegan. He had some a-ha moments after reading "Skinny Bitch", which are a couple of Vegan Chics dishing the true dirt on meat & dairy and how it does ugly stuff to your body (They also have "Skinny Bastard" now too!). This book is a totally fun read with lots of "potty mouth". Next he moved on the "The China Study" which is Colin Campbell's book about the research he did in China and the surprising results he found. Think milk prevents cancer? Think it prevents your bones from dissolving? Think Animal protein is good for your body. Colin Campbell has statistics, charts, graphs, and real life examples, all scientifically based basically linking meat & dairy to nearly every single major ailment common to our Western population. You might remember him from the "Forks Over Knives" post and from the Dr. Oz show.
We usually binge on Vegan Tacos and Cashew Cheeze, Vegan Indian Chili, Raw Vegan Olive Crostini, or some other high fat, comfort food while watching our "DVR"ed Biggest Loser show. Yep, we binge while we watch once morbidly obese people get thin. Sick Habit. Must Stop!
|Fat. Fat. And Lemon!|
Other highlights include Bob wearing his "Eat no Cow" shirt (PETA) in the gym and Jillian last night sported a super sexy "My dog is a Rescue" shirt, I believe from PETA also. Plus Jillian is now advertising Coconut Milk! That is a zillion steps up from A Milk Moustache. If you are donning a Milk Moustache and you have allergies, well read up a little about Milk!. From Wikipedia, a map showing the percentage of Lactose Intolerance in populations.
|Global Map showing percentage of Lactose Intolerant People. Maybe Milk Moustaches aren't the best idea for, well, most of us?|
|My husband said these were too dirty too print.|
|Have you seen those banned PETA commercials? I included one at the end of the post!|
|So it's not yellow. I would be more likely to serve the chocolate or carob version to company that isn't "Raw-like".|
But I felt like a change!
And it was super yummy!

Available from Peta. As you can see, Paul McCartney is a fan of it as well!
|And I think it was this shirt or check out the Peta "My Dog is a Rescue" V necks, that Jillian was wearing on the show that aired last Tuesday, May 2011. Her last season! I always have to "Pause" the tv to see their shirts! Another Peta Rescue shirt. Sure Jillian is tough on people trying to save their lives. She is trying to prevent death! So she shakes stuff up a bit. But she has a huge heart and not only rescues dogs, but kids as well! We will miss you Jillian! |

And I thought I would order the Guayaki Air Dried Mate in Bulk. Since my other brands might have some odd links to odd stuff.......
