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.

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.

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.

What Makes Me Happy {Sweet Potato Sundae Recipe}

TGIF! Recently, I was tagged on Instagram to list ten things that made me happy. For some reason, I forgot Fridays. So much makes me happy. I just rambled on about the first ten things that came to mind.
But #2 was food. And #1 was veganism. And this sweet potato sundae meets both criteria in the most fabulous of ways. Let's talk about the recipe.

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.

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
