  • Part III of Dealing With Injuries: Jumper’s Knee
    Getting this series of posts up has taken longer than expected! But I think the excuse of having our second child (Maxine Cleopatra Torres-Tresize, born 11/14/2015) is a good one! I’m still working on and around many of these injuries and I’m still eager to share my experience with the hope that someone reading this[...] The post Part III (...more)

  • Part Two Of Dealing With Injuries: Ankle Impingement
    In my last post I discussed all the injuries I was forced to overcome in the last year and some broad strategies on how to go about doing so (start small, build slowly). In years past I’ve suffered numerous injuries, ignored them for too long, and then tried to rehab them way too aggressively. Don’t[...] The post Part Two Of Dealing With (...more)

  • Crustless Low Fat Pumpkin Pie
    Pie crust, although delicious, is often what turns an otherwise healthy fruit pie into a gut bomb of fat. This is the most recent update to a pumpkin pie recipe I’ve been sharing here for years – so far, it’s been the firmest, most delicious incarnation of all! And the best part is that it’s[...] The post Crustless Low Fat Pumpkin (...more)

  • Part One of Dealing with Training Injuries: My Experience
    It’s now nearly 7 weeks past my WNBF Pro Physique debut and over the past two months I’ve been laying plans for my off-season and setting goals for 2016. Designating a period of recovery and focusing on rehabilitating past injuries as I trained over 2015 has been well worth any frustration that came with the extra care, time[...] The (...more)

  • Training for Life: Preparing My Body for a Major Athletic Event
    We’re expecting our second (vegan) child any time now after a second, so-far successful vegan pregnancy. But this post isn’t just about training for pregnancy or childbirth – even though that in itself is kind of a novel idea! Derek and I both have completely transformed our approach to fitness, both for ourselves and clients,[...] The (...more)

  • My Pro Debut at the WNBF Pro Universe!
    We’ve just returned from a trip to Manhattan NY where I competed in my debut Pro Men’s Physique Contest! It was a short and busy trip, and there was stiff competition so I’m very happy to share that I placed 2nd! I was the only vegan competitor to my knowledge out of 108 athletes, so[...] The post My Pro Debut at the WNBF Pro Universe! (...more)

  • The History of the Legendary “Bean Shake” – Ultimate Vegan Weight Gainer!
    Derek has been sharing his personal journey as a vegan athlete with Bite-Size Vegan over the past weeks, and his most recent interview covers the bean shake that we have used ourselves and with clients so successfully over the years as a way to get in more nutritious whole plant foods every day!

  • 6 Weeks Out From My Pro Debut at the WNBF Pro Universe!
    It’s been a long time since I’ve shared a progress update! I’ve been training consistently, but my training has changed dramatically over the last 6 months. Ever since shortly after my Men’s Bodybuilding victory in 2013 with Team Plantbuilt I’ve had multiple injuries to work around, which is why I changed to Men’s (...more)

  • Banana Ice Cream
    We eat banana ice cream every singe day, for real! There are some special occasion ice creams shown in my little meme up there: sweet potato-banana with Ricemallow fluff and pecans, rocky road with vegan marshmallows and chopped dark chocolate almonds, strawberry with fresh strawberries a date-cashew topped whole wheat, fat-free cupcake, and mint chocolate[...] The (...more)

  • Rich, Creamy, Yellow Mac and Cheese Packed with Veggies!
    I grew up on Kraft macaroni and cheese (unfortunately), and have never stopped loving creamy pasta dishes over my 14 years as a vegan. I have created many variations on this theme – lots are archived under the recipe index – but this is by far my favorite. It has all of the richness and[...] The post Rich, Creamy, Yellow Mac and Cheese Packed (...more)

  • Simplify Your Weightloss – Part 1 – Resistance by Max Seabrook
      I keep hearing all these complicated and different ways to lose weight. So I wanted to write this series of articles to help simplify what makes a successful weight-loss plan. Someone’s plan doesn’t need to be complicated to be successful. If someone sets up extremely restrictive or complicated rules, it’s easy for them to[...] The post (...more)

  • Tales from the Vegan Cruise – Holistic Holiday at Sea 2015
    We just returned from the Holistic Holiday at Sea and again had an awesome time! As usual the food was wholesome, the presenters were excellent and the ports were beautiful, AND the group has clearly grown over the last few years which we’re very happy to see.

  • Quick White Bean Chili Served Over a Sweet Potato: It’s a Complete Meal in Minutes!
    Recently, we appeared on regional CBS6 to promote Meatless Mondays and share as much as we could about the benefits of going 100% plant-based in the 10 minutes of air time we had! I also shared this recipe for white bean chili – a revamp of a recipe I posted a few years ago that[...] The post Quick White Bean Chili Served Over a Sweet Potato: (...more)

  • Is Coffee Ok?
    – By Max Seabrook Coffee is the 3rd most commonly consumed drink in the world (excluding water). But is it healthy? Or are some people correct to avoid coffee altogether? In this article I’ll address some questions concerning why someone might avoid or consume coffee, and if drinking this beverage is something we should be doing.[...] The post (...more)

  • Filling Winter Soups to Make in Large Batches
      Hot soup is wonderful in the winter. In the warmer months, we always have a big bowl of banana ice cream (frozen bananas blended with cocoa powder) with our standard lunch of a large green salad with tofu strips or beans, but when it gets cold out, soup is more appealing! Soup is an[...] The post Filling Winter Soups to Make in Large Batches (...more)

    Since the holiday season is upon us and most of you reading this are very pressed for time I wanted to share a trick I’ve used with myself and clients to get a grueling workout done in under 30 minutes. The two exercise workout is not something you should do every day (though you could),[...] The post The Sub-30-Minute Two Exercise Workout appeared (...more)

  • Running and Caloric Restriction Go Up Against A Plant-Based Diet for Obesity and Cancer Prevention: Three Enter, One Leaves
      Some recent research is supporting the (to us obvious) conclusion that a plant-based diet is superior to other methods of obesity and cancer prevention. Why is this information important? By 2030, over 50% of the US population is expected to be obese, and obesity-attributable disease is projected to rise by 6-8 million cases of diabetes,[...] The (...more)

  • Three Ways to Lead By Example This Thanksgiving
    Thanksgiving is kind of a strange holiday. If we’re friends on Facebook, you may have seen my recent post about the somewhat dim view I take of the whole thing, but here I will focus on the positive. Thanksgiving is an opportunity for us to lead by example. If you’ve been vegan and/or plant-based for a[...] The post Three Ways to Lead By (...more)
