full of love
you flew into me; mistakenly.
You are beautiful.
your voice is like nothing i have ever heard.
sweet lullabys dance on your tongue
fill me with hope
maybe, my time has come
my wish shall come true.

this never happens.

sunny nights

hello. we meet again.
does anyone else have a dog who deliberately will play with toys (bouncy balls in this case) right near, oh i dunno, a couch, or dresser, and somehow mysteriously lose the ball under said furniture? it's cute the first three times, but seriously! as soon as one of us fetches the lost ball, sparky is at it again, playing near furniture he knows it will get lost under. Anyways, it's kind of entertaining to watch it unfold, especially the look on his face when the ball rolls under the dresser and he can't get it. priceless.

 one of the MANY bouncy balls sparky has. no joke, there everywhere!

So I guess this blog is going to turn into more of a "everyday" adventure blog, with some food included, but more so my everyday life. Or just musings I like to think up. Is that cool? okay, nice. Oh, my mom and I are going grocery shopping tomorrow. Ya why would I blog about this? I don't know.. I think it's because i'm an  out of college student who hasn't written a resume yet and is poor! and I live of fresh fruit and veggies, and we are running out of fruits and veggies right now. And I don't feel like going out and spending the little $$ I have to live on, on food. My mom shops uber healthy and basically I can't wait for our fruit bowl to look like this again:

SO BEAUTIFUL, right? I love fruit, I fruit fast all the time! Actually, the majority of the food I eat is fruit. Right now, seeing as my family has eaten most of the fruit in the fruit bowl, I'm dying for some more, especially grapes ( I can live of them - no joke) So tomorrow will be awesome. Spending time with my mom and picking out my favorite fruits, which she will graciously buy, YES.

THIS JUST IN --> I really do not like texting. like, really. I wish I could peace out from the world of cellphones, but I need it to keep in touch with my parents when I'm not at home, which right now is never.. haha. enough of my hermit style life, but honestly! I wish people talked on the phone more. No more mis-construed messages! Oh what a treat, can you imagine! seriously though, we are all turning into non confrontational robots.  but hey, thats our tech savy society for us!
on another note, people need to grow up, why is everyone 20 years old so immature? Is drinking seriously the coolest thing to do on a saturday night? Also, why are some people so close minded? oh well.

Wow, I can't wait to start nursing, (must make resume). I miss the hospital and the people/patients, it really helped put my mind at ease. I will get a job there, I need to! Then I can share funny stories, totally anoymous.. of course. Like how HORRIBLE some doctors writing is, "wth does that say?" "uuh looks like the doctor ordered a long light switch for the patient?", "um what? how is that even a order, and wait.. wth?". True story, one of my patients kept asking for an extenstion for her overhead light because the one she had didn't work? I dunno, moral of the story, the doctor wrote an ORDER for one. Yes, an order, OY! I think she just needed some STAT lorazepam and a nice 7.5 mg dose of zoplicone.. mmm sleeeeepytime. Just kidding!

I'm back or rather, I'm bored.
I've been feeling pretty down lately, good times.

I have been using Coconut oil as my daily mosturizer, ya, i slather it all on my face, it's beautiful. It's healthy, clean and light. I love it. If need be I can cook with it as well. yay.

mmmm, coconut.

I have also been dining in the raw non stop, I love it, so yummy. I found this awesome recipe for salad dressing too, it's SO good, and I've been using it non stop. I made a few changes.. here is my version, I take no responsibility in creating the gorgeous flavour of it. I found it on the Gone Raw website.

Easy peesy salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup water
  • splash of braggs (to taste, can easily take over the dish)
  • splash of apple cider vinegar, or juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2-3 tablespoons nutritional yeast ( i like lots, again to taste)
  • 1 clove of fresh garlic, grated
  • 1 inch cube of fresh grated ginger
mix all ingrediants together and adjust to fit your taste. Let veggies marinate in sauce or pour over salad.

I also just made melted carob syrup to dip fruit in, It's yummy i guess, It's weird, my tastebuds don't know if they like carob, love carob or don't like it at all. Make p your mind! I mixed the melted mess with a splash of soy milk to make it a bit creamier and some maple syrup, not bad, not bad.

Well, enough of that now.. anyways I find I'm really getting into animal advocacy, and buddhism, weird. My brother is reading my book right now on buddhism, as we speak. His girlfriends mom is buddhist! I had no idea, how rad is that!? And my brother is interested in it to? Wow. The things you learn on a daily basis. Anyways, I always think of these things in my head then research the crap out of them or read up on them. It's how I have been spending my time. I wish more like minded people were around, but hey, "enlightening" my mom works just as well. mwhaha. I believe everyone should practice compassion toward every living being. We have NO right taking animals lives for our pleasure. We are so greedy. Ok I'll stop now. I randomly rant sometimes.. You should ch-ch-check these sites out though.

Food Inc: Hungry for Change?

teehee. I had to share :) just spreading the love and suttle advocacy! Also, I watched the documentary Food Inc. Last night, Oh. My. Word. The food industry is completely screwed, we as humans are completely screwed if we don't act now for change, change from GMO crops, change from Factory farms (my arch nemesis), change from food borne illness' (e.coli on spinach? WTF?) change for the way food is priced. How can it be a bag of chips is cheaper then a head of lettuce? What is that telling people? I'm sorry, the whole industry makes me so angry. so so so angry, I could rant for days, this is why I only buy from  the produce section. But what if that is taken over? which it will be in time!

cute picture of the post!

I love this picture of my dog, Sparky. He is so precious, and is the glue of our family, with out him, I don't know where I'd be. He's one of the strongest reasons I became Vegan, and it's him I thank. Thank you for showing me such love, compassion and trust, and for keeping me company in the darker times. ♥

Hi all! I made such a yummy salad for dins. Not completely raw, but hey, I'm trying here. Plus, lentils are my true loves, I couldn't say no (nor can I ever). With the salad I had some butternut squash.. so yummy! I love squash, any kind, it doesn't matter, it always makes me feel so warm and nice inside.
 Spicy Lentil Salad
  • 1/2 cup Lentils (I used canned - I know, I'm bad!)
  • Cumin (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • Garlic (to taste)
  • 1/4 chopped white onion
  • 1 chopped tomatoe
  • 1/4 cucumber chopped
  • Mixed greens (as much as you like)
Mix all ingredients together, and pair with butternut squash! I cut a squash in half, then halved those pieces. I then placed a piece on a plate, flesh down and then microwaved it for 10 mins.. yes, I'm lazy today. Anyways, it was a great and flavourfull meal! Filled me right up! gosh I love being vegan :)

Mom's Fav

Macaroons are timeless, and oh so chocolaty. Traditionally, many recipes call for rolled oats, not coconut! Crazy hey? A raw, healthy version must be available right? One that you don't feel guilty indulging in? Well I have the answer.. YES it exists! Much like an old recipe my grandma use to make for my mom when she was a young girl, these macaroons will blow you away. They take maybe 5 minutes to prepare, and only take 6 ingredients.. how easy! Mom approved as well, she l♥ves them and tells me "they're just like the ones grandma use to make."

Raw Macaroons
  • Cacao powder (to taste, meaning lots!)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • pure maple syrup
  • shredded coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • sprinkle of salt
Mix all ingrediants in a bowl. I don't measure my ingrediants, and honestly, you dont need a lot of coconut oil and syrup, the syrup does help hold things together though. Use common sense, if the mixture is to moist, add more coconut flakes, if its to dry, add a bit more syrup. It's fail proof. Once mixed, it should be moist and delicious! add more ingredients to your liking. With mine, I use a lot of cacao powder, and I mean lots, I make these bad boys chocolaty!


Here is a great and intriguing article on Carnism. I have recently been reading up on this interesting topic, and find it quite amazingly sensible.
Carnism is defined as "the belief system in which it's considered ethical and appropriate to eat (certain) animals."
Here is the link: Understanding Meat eater Mentality - Carnism
It's a great read, and is written by Melanie Joy, author of the book 'Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism' 
Her book comes out in December, I can't wait!

Okay so this blog will start up soon, i promise!
ill start by saying it will mainly be recipes (vegan) and
i will offer some helpful tips with baking etc. As a NEW
vegan, i know how confusing and hard it is to find small
recipes that have ingredients that are easily found in a
non-health food store! when i first started, almost every recipe
i found had multiple ingredients that i couldnt justify buying
(i'm a student by the way) so it was hard, but i have found some
GREAT recipes and tricks, that i will share! i also just wanted a
place where i can publish these recipes so i will always have them mwhahah!
post soon!
