Nothing beats a good home-made trail mix when you’re out on adventures. Today I went cliff jumping with Crystal and my good friend @neilfroehlich at Slocan lake. British Columbia has so much to offer, if you’re ever looking for a good nature getaway... get up here! Anyone ever visited BC? Where did you go? . . . . . . . . #trailmix #vegansnack #plantpowered #plantpower #beautifulbritishcolumbia #veganfood #whatveganseat #healthysnack #eatrealfood #fastfood #vegansofig

I was driving through my old neighbourhood and got to visit the park where I started doing calisthenics. It was so cool to go back years later and apply the skills and strength I gained. Of course I had to do the classic, @frank_medrano inspired 1 armed L-sit pose. . . . . . . . . #lsit #calisthenics #vegancalisthenics #veganmuscle #vegansofig #plantpowered #plantstrong #veganbodybuilding #wfpb #streetworkout #bodyweight #veganathlete

Check out this massive fruit platter we made with @absofruitlymel at the @canadafruitfest! 🍌🍉🍒🍑🥝 Crystal and I are spending the weekend here, surrounded by so many amazing people and endless, local, organic fruit and greens! Feeling very lucky to experience this. . . . . . . . #canadafruitfest #fruitfest #fruitsalad #fruitplatter #wfpb #vegansofig #rawvegan #yum #plantbuilt #plantstrong #vegainz #fruitislife #fruitisfuel #plantpowered

Went for a nice ride with @crystalkennings today. It was one of those perfect rides where everything flows. The bike felt fast, I had lots of energy, not too many cars on the road or people on the trails with perfect weather! ☀️ Of course we finished it off with a bunch of fruit at the park after... although we devoured most of it before thinking of snapping some pics 😝 For the record, Crystal rides a single speed (not easy) and absolutely rips. She impresses me every time we go out for a rip. Any of you cyclists out there? . . . . . . . . . . . . #cycling #cardio #veganpower #veganathlete #plantpowered #veganmuscle #vegansofig #nature #vitaminn #plantstrong #hclf #wfpb #getoutside

Consistency, hard work, intent. There really aren’t any secrets to progression. Some ‘hacks’ might appear to make the journey shorter, but the lessons learned throughout the process are invaluable. Keep your head down and keep grinding friends, you WILL get there! 👊 . . . . . . . . . #myonlypose #flexfriday #ff #gains #veganmuscle #veganbodybuilding #plantpowered #veganathlete #wfpb #govegan #plantstrong #vegainz #plantbuilt #vegansofig

I couldn’t decide between a green or berry smoothie bowl today... so I had both! In my head it was going to look much different (better), but it still turned out pretty cool! . . . . . . #smoothiebowl #greensmoothie #plantpowered #plantstrong #veganfood #postworkout

I had a professor in school that would refer to nature as ‘vitamin n’. He explained to us that it’s a nutrient that should be consumed regularly. I couldn’t agree more, it always feels like I have filled my cup full when I leave the woods. This was taken at Qualicum River Falls Park. We are so lucky being surrounded by so much nature here on Vancouver Island. Where is your favourite place to get some vitamin n? . . . . . . #getoutside #beautifulbritishcolumbia #veganathlete #veganmuscle #vitaminn #moveyourbody #vegansofig #naturebath #movement #wfpb #vegansofig #breathe #plantpowered #plantstrong #veganfitness

When you’re too hot to wear a shirt but too cool to take off your hat. 😂 The gym cleared out for a few minutes so I nabbed a few shirtless pics after my workout. 🌱💪 Don’t forget, the photos you see from me and almost everyone on social media is usually our best. For fitness photos they are often after or mid workout so the muscles are full, the lighting is good, the stomach held tight, the best of several shots is chosen, then contrast and other filters are added. It makes sense that we want to show our best to the world, but it’s important to remember that what we’re looking at is only the most complimentary sliver of time. This is why we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others on here! Drawing inspiration is great and I get much of my inspiration from others on here. . . . . . . . . #veganbodybuilding #veganmuscle #plantpowered #veganathlete #plantstrong #wfpb #vegancalisthenics #calisthenics #strengthtraining #plantbuilt

Crystal and I were in Victoria yesterday for Vegtoria and decided to visit our favourite restaurant, @belovevictoria for dinner! I had the vegan fish and chips and @crystalkennings had something green like usual. 😂 I hope ya’ll are having a great weekend. I filmed a vlog of our day which should be up later this week if you’re into checking it out. Also a good classic Ask Me Monday should be out tomorrow. Bink, bink, bink, bonk! 😂 . . . . . . . . #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #veganfood #plantpowered #plantstrong #belove #vegan #delicious #fishandchips #compassion

I like to eat my smoothie bowls amongst its scattered ingredients. Not only is it best for pictures, but it lets the other food know it’s future fate. 😈 Soon you will be blended up with your friends into a delicious slurry of nutrients, which I will use to fuel my body. Muahahaha. 🧟‍♂️ Imagine photos of a standard breakfast like this? Bacon and eggs with a few pig and chicken parts laying around the table. Mmm. No hate to the meat eaters, just some food for thought. Literally 😂 #butplantshavefeelingstoo . . . . . . #govegan #vegansofig #veganfood #plantpowered #plantstrong #veganbreakfast #veganpower #smoothiebowl #greensmoothie #wfpb #hclf #carbup #veganmuscle #eatforpeace

It’s so crazy to me that I still get the “but where do you get your protein” question when people find out I’m vegan. The same place many animals do... plants! 🌱 Plants contain all the protein we need including every single essential amino acid. Its really non issue on a vegan diet. Eat enough, get enough protein. It’s simple. This is the result of 5 years of training on a vegan diet.... and lots of bananas. 🍌💪 . . . . . . . #plantbuilt #plantstrong #plantpowered #veganathlete #vegansofig #veganmuscle #veganbodybuilding #vegansofig #veganpower #calisthenics #vegancalisthenics #powerful #govegan

Who else lives for these long summer nights!?! While it rains here for much of the year, it is more than made up for by these warm cloudless days we get pretty much all summer.🙏 ☀️ How’s the weather where you are? (Doesn’t apply to Californians... we already know 😘) . . . . . . . . #lockitout! #handstand #inversion #sunset #parksville #summernights #calisthenics #vegancalisthenics #plantpowered #veganathlete #veganpower #veganmuscle
