Just thought I’d take a stroll through the vegan tag on Tumblr and after a few scrolls I have already given up. It’s just pictures of girls in their knickers, detox smoothies and fitness shit.


Where are all the real vegans? The ones that give a crap about animals and not just their own butts.

The longer we reside on this earth, the more unreal our food becomes. You need to check your labels and understand what you are putting into your body. If a bunch of man made chemicals is what you love, then do what makes you happy. I love my life, therefore I love what naturally keeps it going. Btw, natural cranberry juice makes “it” sweeter ladies. 😉 #naturalliving #teamnatural #fruitsandveggies #iloverealfood

Tonight’s Dinner🍴: Curried Plantain, Lemon Spinach Cous Cous, & Mixed Leafy Green Salad w/ Homemade Garlic Herbed Dressing Topped w/ Pecans!!!💋

Curried Plantain Recipe 👇

————————————————

Ingredients:

• 4 medium ripe plantain

• 1/2 scotch bonnet or habanero pepper (I used a tiny piece of an Anaheim pepper because I don’t like spicy foods.)

• 1/2 cup chopped green onions

• 1/3 cup chopped cilantro

• 3 TBS fresh lime/lemon juice mixture

• 1/3 cup dulse seaweed flakes or 1/2 tsp black salt (I used a mix of sea salt + kelp granules)

• 1 TBS curry powder

• 3 medium roma tomatoes (chopped small)

• 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
_________________________

Directions:

Peel plantain. Slice very thinly widthwise, about 1/8 of an inch thick. Set aside in a bowl. Deseed pepper and chop finely and add to plantain bowl. Dice roma tomatoes and add to plantain. Add chopped green onion, cilantro, lemon/lime juice, curry powder, olive oil, salt and/or kelp seasoning. Fold to mix. Do not over stir, as this will cause plantain to become mushy. Enjoy.

————————————————-

NOTE: Make sure to use ripe plantain, which will have large black spots or be mostly black instead of dark yellow. If you use green plantain, it will cause your dish to taste chalky.

Off the Wagon

It seems I have taken a slight hiatus from health eating/active lifestyle. Now that Tough Mudder training is over there is absolutely nothing to look forward to. Without goals it seems I lack motivation to keep on. Sad. I still eat fruits and veggies here and there and try not to consume tons of fried fruits or sweets (habits that seem to be sticking) but I am not going out of my way. I also consumed entirely TOO much salty foods last Sunday. Have also not been drinking enough water. The end result was me coming down with a sore throat that progressed to a full blown ‘head cold’ (what we wannabe MDs call an upper respiratory tract infection/URI). I also feel like my head is going to explode. I know that you need a ‘bug’ (virus or bacteria) to have these symptoms. Who knows tho? I cant help but wonder if its due to not eating well/working out as often.

Oh well, hopefully I will find some new motivation/inspiration and hop back on to the wagon next week. 

P.S The other day at lunch I had an epiphany. A fellow classmate (super skinny caucasian female) was eating a large red pepper for lunch. WTH? She had no hummus, no other dip or anything that was her lunch. She ate this with a smile. In this moment I realized why I will probably NEVER, ever be skinny. I like food. Am sure she enjoyed her pepper. Maybe am just jealous….
