But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.
This is what rape culture looks like.
This is what misogyny looks like."
HELLO BEAUTIFUL HUMAN, no need to be anonymous with me, I don’t bite! I love talking lifestyle :D
To answer your questions though, I never used to supplement protein in my diet until recently. Since I train 6 days a week and don’t have too much time at home, I’ve taken to using pea protein after my workouts (I’m not very strict about it, so really this is just when I remember). I use Vital Protein for this, but am pretty interested to try Amazonia Raw when I run out of Vital. Obviously, I don’t solely rely on protein powders! I eat a lot of protein-dense foods - veggies (green green green!), legumes, TVP, tofu, beans (!), quinoa, nut milk, nut butter, etc. You’ll be so surprised how much protein you get on a vegan diet (animals that people eat get their protein from somewhere too!).

As far as my immune system goes - if you get enough good nutrients, you don’t really need to supplement at all! I’m still only new to being vegan (year and a half or so), but I have been sick once in that time. And I’m not a massive clean eater. I’m binging on potato chips as I type this. Anyway, on a vegan diet you tend to eat A LOT and often (or I do at least!), just make sure you get enough veg in your diet, along with additional protein sources and you should be all g!
And I do get tired, but a big part of this is B12 deficiency! This is the one thing that I really really really recommend actually supplementing. You can get B12 injections from your doctor, take B12 vitamins, and I also use a fair bit of B12 fortified nutritional (or savoury, depending where you’re from) yeast in my meals (kale, olive oil, nutritional yeast in a slow oven is to die for ungh).
Don’t be too hard on your body for getting tired, it’s going through a big change! Vegetables contain all the main nutrients we need, make sure you’re eating enough of them! My staple foods (that work for me, it’s different for us all) are spinach, silverbeet and other leafy greens, broccoli, tofu/fake meat (usually TVP), calcium-fortified nut milks, sweet potato, carrots, nut butter, avocado, tomatoes, peas or beans, and some grains (only “some” because I’m usually too lazy to cook ‘em). Oh, and a lot of beer.
Wow, I’ve been writing for too long I’m so sorry.
Three hours is too long to workout for. I think I need a life
