Self-Expression (Cauliflower BBQ Wings Recipe)

Conflict can be easily summed up by issues in communication.
Emotions are suppressed and you don't say what you mean and everything becomes twisted, misconstrued.
Words that fly through your brain aren't easily translated into conversation because of filters. Is it acceptable? Is it okay? Is it worthwhile? How will people react, how will others take it?
And we end up saying things we don't mean - and errs of truth stir up conflict.

An Ode to Fathers (Father's Day Dinner Bowl Recipe)

See, originally I was going to give you guys a smoothie recipe. Are you kidding me, it's summer, and we are all hot. But those pictures were, for some reason, damaged beyond repair and therefore unmentionable.
Instead, we have a wonderful dinner bowl for you.


But this is beside the point. Today's post is all about the man in my life that I call Dad.

Vegan Basics : Rainbow Island (BLUE Recipes)

Today is blue day. That means today we celebrate the ones who are loyal and trustworthy. The ones who are the rocks in other people's lives. You are the wise ones who typically know a little more. You  are calm and truthful, let's celebrate you.


Oh, and since leaves never turn blue for a reason (there's a long, scientific spiel for that), and there are pretty much zip foods that are naturally "blue" besides blueberries... I've simply included blueberries in every meal today in honor of the blue people. (And no, not the Avatar people.)

Vegan Basics : Rainbow Island (GREEN Recipes)

Green. Sometimes you might think it stands for envy. Greed, avarice, and things that one might avoid in a person. But no. Green actually signals a fresh renewal. A sense of rest and relaxation that soothes... And the color of life. Let's celebrate all of you who are full of life.

Vegan Basics : Rainbow Island (YELLOW Basics)

Yellow. What you yearn for in the sun, yes? It's that blanket of relief when you've been freezing all day. Just a small puddle of happiness from where a rainbow starts. Today, we celebrate YOU. If you are yellow, you are that person smart enough to understand just how everyone ticks, and uses that to the advantage of cheering everybody up.


Like monkeys. They cheer people up. (: Or maybe they're just happy because bananas make you happy.

Vegan Basics : Rainbow Island (ORANGE Recipes)

Orange you glad? That's the question I greeted the morning with, and it simply set a better attitude for the day. ORANGE means putting energy into happiness. Here's hats off to those who possess enthusiasm, have the balls to be creative, and can be kind enough to provide encouragement to others. Let's celebrate you.

Judgment without Jealousy (Rainbow Rice Rolls Recipe)

We, as the human race, are naturally a very envious bunch.
In fact, sometimes, if I feel like.... We compliment others with envy. And in doing so, rob the love that we deserve for ourselves, and lump it onto an ideal that we will never achieve.


Not sure if I'm fully making sense here yet... But read on, because ^those^ RAINBOW RICE ROLLS are headed your way.

You Are Strong (Vegan Kale Protein Bowl Recipe)

Just your daily reminder that you are strong.
Physically, yes. And, I mean, here's a protein bowl (vegan) to keep you going that way, too.
But mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, you are beyond strong.

Cinco de Mayo Tribute : Victory Over Opinions {Black Bean Hummus Dip Recipe}

This is my Cinco de Mayo Plate. It's ironic how Americans are so into commodifying any excuse to celebrate and blow out so much that we just might celebrate it more than the Hispanics.


But I just wanted to give my tidbit of thought about another kind of battle won, inspired by the Mexican victory at the Battle of Puebla. The Battle of Mattering Opinions.

Mondays with Meatless Mmms {The Vegan Monster Burger Recipe}

It's Monday. And those are somewhat usually dreaded. Family dinners might come around filled with lifeless stories of how boring you found the start of the week. But liven the spirit of the Monday meal with a new meatless entree! I present to you: The Vegan Monster Burger Recipe.
(It was so DARN DELICIOUS. I think I ate more of this batter in process than if I were making cookies.)

JourneyJournie : April Fools Anniversary {Dinner Cookies Recipe}

Today is actually my one year anniversary of making the decision to give up meat. Yes, it was for all the wrong reasons. I mean, April Fools Day. So I went vegetarian for all the wrong reasons, but I definitely went vegan for all the right reasons. So let's celebrate with some cookies... Err, dinner cookies.

Eat&Evaluate : Big Hero 6 (Vegan Sushi Recipe)

What's Special:
Unfortunately, I missed Big Hero 6 in the theaters, and watched it on rental, so there is no supplementary cover art for the movie. But to make up for that, I made the sushi BH6 color themed. It's the least bit of a tribute that I could give to Disney's newest animation. Modeled after the advances of technology in Japan and using that backdrop to spin an engaging story that echoes an Avengers-Power Rangers feel, it may not seem like the most entrancing movie, but I learned that this film is certainly not one to judge by the cover.

Vegan Basics : A Trip to Banana Island {Banana Detox and Cleanse}

The past four days, I've eaten nothing but bananas.
Well, not nothing but bananas... But definitely a banana based nourishment, averaging 18-21 bananas a day.
To many, this sounds incredulous and overboard and crazy. I'm here to tell you why it's not. And give you three recipes to get you started on your own banana feast.

JourneyJournie : Spring Cleanse {Fruit Salad Kale Tacos Recipe}

Spring is in the air, and as the snowman that freezes in all seasons excepting summer, I am incredibly happy about it. This also means that I can start to eat my nicecream towers and tasty vegan smoothies without having to shiver in front of the heater directly afterwards.
*Funny Conversation - Me: oh my gosh this is spring and this is great and i love the weather and oh look green in the grass! My Mother: those are weeds. (For more anecdotes and very vegan problems in 140 characters or less, follow my Twitter.)*
But anyway, spring is also a great day for a refreshing cleanse. Eating more than just predominantly raw, but fully raw, to give your digestive system a break. And for me, I'm taking a little trip to banana island.
Enough about me, though, and let's give you a recipe to get you kickstarted on a little more raw food in your everyday diet! Fruit Salad Tacos... Mmm. <3

Eat&Evaluate : A Weekend in NYC (Tips for a Traveling Vegan)

The Big Apple. How was it, people asked me? Well, let's just say I fell in love with this city very quickly. This place that never sleeps, the port destination for the hopeful immigrants, the streets of marquees and the city of dreams. How could I want to spend my future anywhere else?

WindowWishing : Wanderlust & Travel

Partially inspired by the fact that I recently and spontaneously received a rabbit. Yes, a rabbit. {Perhaps the lack of vegan friends has boiled down to that, you know? ^.^} I am henceforth inspired to go places. My rabbit - whom my sister has named Oreo because of the markings - is confined in a cage for five days out of the seven in a week, due to the time that the family simply does not have during the weekdays.
Well, I don't want Oreo in a cage to be a metaphor in my life.

{Pilot} CreativeCravings : RawManda

In the Starlight:
RawManda is such an inspiration to me, and I don't even know her! But her site setup, recipes that span the vast spectrum across Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, Facebook, and Twitter, it's all what I aspire to grow my little baby site into. She is a high raw hclf vegan, with a talent for making healthy food look crave-worthy. Please check out her eats and more! She always posts her raw recipes, which also happen to be vegan.


What She Makes:

Right: She is a pro at raw desserts, making them look professionally delicious. It's a wondrous thing that she understands how to come up with a cure for those high-fat raw desserts that can make you feel a little sluggish. Here are her carrot cake balls.

Left: And something else I want to take after, she knows how important it is to also include savory things for people to taste. These genius FullyRaw teriyaki "meat"balls are all from her mind. Aren't you drooling already? Get the recipe now!






Below: Her skills at turning over her parents to see the amazing tastes that can be unleashed through healthy eating astound me and are the ultimate goal. ^.^ She totally dominated Thanksgiving with her fan with her RAW stuffing that simply looks scrumptious, and pumpkin pie tarts that are so delectable I want to make some right now. How to make this Thanksgiving feast? Get the recipes!


And last but not least, she doesn't just stick to the boring status quo of food bloggers. She's sweet enough to share little tips about this healthy lifestyle to those who need it. Like this highly beneficial read where she talks about how to Stay Healthy During the Holiday Season.



Do You Crave It?
So now I look to you for opinion. Do you crave it as much as I do? Respond in the comments below! Till then I will leave you with her bowl of FullyRaw pad thai with kelp noodles! Someone please make this for me!
