Recklessness within Safety (Chocolate Cherry Smoothie Recipe)

As I'm writing this post, ants are crawling all over me as I sit at a lone table in the local Barnes & Noble cafe. I'm not kidding. I woke up to an invasion of ants in my bathroom and a visible trail of the critters from my window to bed, and they've followed me to my cafe haven of focus.

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.

Deleting Distractions

Distractions are a normal part of life, and they can build up to becoming irritating. They crowd your senses and make your experiences amiss.
I tried to get a little back in touch with reality this past week... and it was pretty great.

I didn't intend to do this, but as I started to simplify life, I started challenging myself to be even more minimalistic. Maybe it had to do with reading Emerson and Thoreau in school this past week.

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.

Many Ways to Go (THREE SMOOTHIE RECIPES)

Sometimes being a vegan blends with severe feelings of wanderlust. You yearn for a society that isn't mandated by rules, more like your own little haven of adventure. Choosing your own path with no one governing you, no censor for your self-expression, and no one's permission required to chase your wildest dreams.

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 (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.

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

I Love My Mother (Mother's Day Recipe)

There was a big confession today. I uploaded my story, and the sole purpose was because I wanted to help others. If offers hope, an ability of empathy, or awareness / a sense of what it's like to even ONE person... It was worth it.


And even though the story may seem like it targets my mother as the cause of my struggle, please understand that my mother was also my way out. I love her, and I wanted to share a special Mother's Day recipe dedicated to her.
