Brainssss and Walnuts | Raw Chocolate Fudge


The first time I made this recipe, I soaked the dates and it ended up as this: frosting, which I used on my 22nd birthday cake. The second and third times, I wised up and kept things dry to make raw chocolate…stuff…fudge…freezer snacks.

Easing the Spiritual Cramp | Juice Fast II

Fasting brings me back to the natural swing of things: fatigue, hunger, boredom, interest, what gives me joy and what causes me pain. It takes a chainsaw to the social, political, religious, et aliis reasons and justifications I build around certain behaviours.







From conversations with friends over the past few weeks, I gathered that it’s a privilege have had the training to be a researcher and public speaker.  I can both find/make results and deliver them with flair. Turning the “critical lens” on myself and my world yields insights and possibilities for my next steps. During my second juice fast of 2014, the results of the critical lens’ scan seem particularly glaring.



Cranberry Carrot Juice

5 1/2-inch diameter carrots, peeled if not organic and cut into big chunks
1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen
2 red delicious apples, cored and cut into big chunks
1-inch chunk ginger
water to cover

Combine the above in a blender and blitz to oblivion.  Bottle and chill until time to consume.


Parting shots:
Another study telling us that taking lunch break makes us more productive and overall better employees. I supported this sentiment in Sandwich over a year ago.


Videre licet, recess.

Went to Khepra’s Raw Food Juice Bar with my friend Lizzy. Curse reversed.



I can die a thousand times
But I will always be here
with the power skull secrets
of forgotten years

Slippery Supper: Devil’s Tentacles Pasta with Lemon and Arugula

Tofu shirataki noodles and I have a contentious relationship.

At 20 calories per serving (40 calories in the entire bag), what’s not to love, you ask? (If I may put words in your mouth…)

Shut Up and Listen: Raw Apple Pie

I am very American in the fact that I like my car. Today my car was the instrument through which I received another wakeup call.

Trendy Thursday | Quinoa Pizza Muffins

Q is for Quinoa.
 
Quinoa pizza bites are all over the ’nets. Google it. Figured I’d throw my hat into the ring, my colonial tricorn into the Coraline other-world ring, that is.
 
The particular recipe I deconstructed and rebuilt is from a blog called “The Way to His Heart Blog,” taking its title from the phrase, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”


 

Whenever I think of that phrase, I think of Akasha ripping a guy’s heart out in Queen of the Damned. Vampires have kind of ruined me in some ways. Then again, my birthday is Halloween…

BYO | Raw Vegan Lasagne

Sometimes, you just have to bring your own in order to make sure you’re fed.  As Hillel the Elder said, “If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?” (Pirkei Avot 1:14)
