The Protein Question

Check out Derek’s recent article for One Green Planet, Protein in a Plant-Based Diet: A Vegan Bodybuilder’s Perspective!

We’ve taken a bit of a break from posting (and pretty much everything else)  following the birth of our son Miles a month ago. Originally I envisioned us catching up on things like that as our baby slept peacefully…as newborns reputedly do a lot. Not this guy! Maybe it’s his healthy heritage, maybe it’s his current diet of plant-based breastmilk, but he’s been alert and energetic since day one. Just check out this pic of him at his first pediatrician’s visit 4 days after being born at home:

Look at how focused he is!

Since birth his eyes have been able to focus on and track objects, and at one month he’s already vocalizing a lot and grabbing things – very unusual for a newborn! I’m curious to see if some of our other healthy vegan friends who are expecting notice similar traits in their newborns – or have any of you noticed this sort of thing?

Alright, I’m done gloating! Expect more posts from us in the near future as we get back into the swing of things: I have some recipes to post on and we’ll be doing the vegetarian festival circuit again this summer.

  1. I love the look on Mama’s face…enjoy your time together…it goes fast. I must have blinked because somehow my oldest is turning 11 next month!!!

    I wish you all the best!

  2. Wow! I will definitely have to follow little Miles’s success and if others experience the same thing. My wife and I are expecting if it makes that much of a difference I may have to try and convince her to go vegan. Though, I’m not sure how to approach that. Congratulations, and good luck!

  3. Hey, no need to apologize for gloating! When my youngest was born a few years ago, she exhibited very similar signs. Maybe it is a vegan thing!

    Congrats and I wish you all the best

  4. Congrats guys! What a beautiful baby. What an amazing event in your lives. I’m so happy the entire family can rock as Vegans. Much love. Thanks for posting and hosting this site. -brenda
