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.
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
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!
