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.

Yesterday (Sweet and Salty Topped Toast Recipe)

Yesterday, I went to school. I almost fell asleep for a few classes; I battled a few questions about how I get my protein; I biked home, had this snack, went out to eat with my family for my mother's birthday... And then I found out about all of yesterday's tragedies.


Yesterday, November 13, 2015, Paris was attacked by terrorists. Japan's 7.0 earthquake dropped. A funeral in Lebanon was bombed.

And here I am, cozy in my room with the heater turned on, reclining in a beanbag... Entitled to my first-world sense of safety. I complain about getting an education and the work involved. I think that my biggest problem is choosing which university is the biggest accomplishment. I am overwhelmed by all the knowledge that I am privileged to learn.


Here I am, complaining about my privilege, and out there are others that are suffering.

The death toll of Paris could be over 150. It hurts my heart that things like these happen. It breaks my reservoir of emotions, and I simply don't understand why people could think that hurting and killing and murdering is a good idea. I cannot begin to guess at what goes on in these people's heads, if they know the consequences of their actions.. Or if somehow their beliefs have indoctrinated them to think these actions necessary for the greater good. Just know that these people do not represent any population, religion, or sect. Perpetrators of violence only speak for themselves with actions like these. Yet, we know not why they do these things, we cannot comprehend... It's simply a mystery left to God.


Here I am, knowing now to be grateful for problems as safe as mine. Here I am, earnestly praying because I do not know how to begin to guess at what the reason could be behind this violence. Here I am, enlisting God to give His mercy to those suffering in every corner of the world today. Here I am, asking God why on Earth would this happen. What part of His Greater Plan is this? Here I am, hurting for those hurt, and hoping that the hurt is soon soothed by comfort and relieved by joy.


Recipe: Vegan Sourbread Slices
Toast lightly. Spread hummus thickly. Top with sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. Sprinkle pomegranate arils over. Eat.

Fighting the Losing Fight (Carob Pumpkin Oatcakes Recipe)

I recently turned 16, Scribblers. (: I fell sick around the same time, but I guess it was my body's gift/wake-up call of a peaceful respite coupled with an order to reprioritize my life for some sleep.

Vegan picnic with Jessie! The video will be out shortly, consider this blog post a teaser.

Which I have an issue with. But I have been furiously trying to sort out other things in my life in the meantime. For example, my life purpose.

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.

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.

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.

JourneyJournie : Words, Words, Words (Green Goodness Jar Recipe)

My mother once told me that her by her co-worker's words, "bloggers never really know how to write." And that might be true to an extent on my part, as far as my colloquial, low-key, babbling updates about my life are. It's an ongoing diary basically, so I hope my scribbles are balanced out my these recipes. In reality, fictional writing is actually quite a passion. For your constant support though, gotta love my Scribblers! Here's a creamy meal of delicious raw vegan yum for you.

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.
