I made my own Chipolte inspired burrito bowl last night! What was awesome is that I didn’t have to go buy anything, I had all the ingredients in the fridge and pantry. I also have enough left overs for two more. It’s pretty much my new favorite thing. And it contained only an itty-bitty fraction of the sodium an actual burrito bowl from Chipolte has. Don’t get me wrong, I love Chipolte, but 1675 mg of sodium per bowl is quite a lot.

We have: Brown Jasmati rice with cilantro, black beans, sauteed onion and peppers, pico de gallo, tomatillo salsa, romaine lettuce and avocado. 

I took a few shots of the blood moon the other night! It was so cold outside, I had my car running with the heat blasted, the tripod right outside the door. Good times! I now want a super zoom lens! 200mm doesn’t cut it for moon shots. 

I chipped a tooth today :(

Eating a freaking potato and pea samosa! No idea what was in it that was so hard, and I love samosas, and now I’m going to be questioning them for the rest of my days!

So it’s been a little while! Sorry guys :)

I had a birthday on the 17th and I was taken to two really great restaurants. At Local Foods I had vegan chili and a falafel sandwich that were both awesome. They bought me a vegan carrot cake from whole foods and that was an experience to remember. Yum!The next night we went to the Hobbit cafe and had an avocado, tabbouleh, and sprout sandwich. So good!

I’ll keep in touch tumblr!

If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.

this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.

last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks

Get excited, motherfuckers.  Without bees, we will die off.  Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs.  Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.

Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY. 
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Giving bees a “bee block” alone is a huge load off their backs! You can buy homes here or  You can even build your own. 
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

So my father is well aware of my eating habits and of what I do and do not eat. But, every time he calls: “Hey, uh, why don’t you and your sister come over this weekend and I’ll, uh, throw some steaks and chicken on the grill and we’ll just hang out.”

I’m beginning to think the only things my dad can cook are steak and chicken on the grill and sometimes he microwaves some velveta cheese dip.

Thanksgiving again - this time a raw pumpkin and vanilla bean cashew cream cake!

I don’t think I ever posted anything from Thanksgiving, so have some vegan apple pie! The recipe was the same I’ve always used, but I used earth balance in place of butter. Simple as pie! (hah)

I was studying for a test this morning and then the attention fiend reared his precious face.

But seriously, he makes any sort of school work difficult.

Vegan chili! With a dollop of veganaise! I’ve never made chili before, but this turned out wonderfully! I used oh she glows’ recipe ( http://ohsheglows.com/2014/02/05/my-favourite-vegan-chili-with-homemade-sour-cream/#comments ) Of course! Everything from her never fails.

Chickpea salad sandwich for lunch today! I wrote the recipe down in another post if you’re curious. Anyway, chickpea salad on ezekiel bread with dijon mustard, spinach, and a thick slice of tomato. Uh - yum.

Just got done with lunch! I experimented today with an “egg” salad. I’ve seen a lot recipes using chickpeas as the base so I just kinda went with it. And it turned out so freaking good, though I think I’ll use a tad less veganaise next time.
If you’re interested, here’s the recipe:
- 2 cans of garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained- 3/4 - 1 cup of veganaise, or any other kind of vegan mayo (add a little more or a little less depending on your personal preference)- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard- 2 stalks of celery sticks, finely chopped- 1 onion, finely chopped (red, white, sweet, what have you)- 2-3 whole dill pickles, finely chopped- heaping 1/4 cup fresh dill- Juice from half a lemon- Salt and Pepper to tasteI find it easiest to chop everything that needs to be chopped before I start anything else, so, if you’re like me, fine chop the onion, celery, & pickles and rough chop the dill. Set aside.
Rinse and strain the garbanzo beans, then put them into a food processor and pulse them until they look like flakes. Don’t over do it or you’ll be closer to making hummus.
Transfer your flaky beans to a bowl and stir in your vegan mayo, mustard, onion, pickles, celery, dill, and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste, I happen to love to over load things like this with fresh ground pepper. 
And you’re done! Add and subtract any ingredients to your liking, enjoy!
