Just a half Brit drinking tea. Typical lol Green Tea with crushed lemon to be exact. Did you know there are many benefits to drinking green tea? One study conducted on a group of men with the exact same diets and workouts but one group drank green tea while the other did not. After 4 weeks the green tea group lost 5x more fat than the other. So brew up some of this tasty emerald water. Stick your pinky out and enjoy an easy method of shedding some of those excess lbs.😎#greentea #cancerfighter #fatloss #hoready #ripped #nutrition #diet #tea

Sorry for the wait

(Borrowed the title from lil Wayne lol)

I’m just a couple of days away from the start of my second round of treatments and I am not looking forward to it at all. The first round was horrible body aches, metal taste, nausea, loss of appetite etc. I have wanted to quit and walk away from this everyday… just give up. I honestly could not tell you were I am getting the lady parts to get up and go through this every week. Depending on who you ask some will say it’s God, or my spirit animal, or my guardian angel or the even the universe. It could be a combination of all of the above I don’t know. I honestly thought I was going to have this big epiphany like almost all cancer fighters have. I mean I had one last time the life is too short moment don’t take anything for granted. I mean I learned something through my journey. Now its like…. Nothing no light bulb moment no deep thought nothing! I could be looking to much in to it or not looking deep enough. I know its only been what? A month? (lol) I must be tripping I know. I think I am just so pissed and angry about having to go through this once again. Its like taking the same damn pop quiz over and over again and passing it and then your teacher is like oh you have to take the same quiz again I lost it. Bitch what! lol Its frustrating as hell trying to stay 100% positive through all this. I mean I think about the children that are fighting this same freaking battle like Leah Still she is the strong one to be so young and to keep up the good fight. I hate that kids like her have to even know what this feels like. I hate that kids like Lauren Hill had to die behind her disease. 

When I say Fuck cancer I mean that from the bottom of my soul. It has taken so many good people so many children. Here lately it seems like the number of people who are diagnosed has gone way up. Like its the new plague or something. It makes you think about every food, drink, medicine, vaccine or chemical you have every taken/eaten/inhaled in life. You can’t trust to much of anything that you put in your body now and days. Its crazy to think like that but it does make you think. I’m rambling now…

Last week I had a “reaction” to my chemo which felt highly like an elephant sitting on my chest and stomach at the same time. It started off like I needed to throw up but I couldn’t because I needed to catch my breath. It was the weirdest feeling in the world. I was eerily calm though my parents had a slight panic attack though. Watching there kid trying to catch her breath I’m sure was scary as hell. The nurses didn’t help with there nerves telling them that next week will probably be the same if not worse. Something to do with me having the drug more then one can increase the chances of me having a reaction. In my head I’m like “Oh gee thanks for freaking out my already freaked out parents.” I understand she wanted to inform us and she told us on week one but the timing was bad. Lets keep our prayers up that it won’t be a reaction this time around. 

One good thing that happened this past week was damn near everyone in my family got Mohawks for me. Well my brother is already rocking one. However, my mama, dad, and aunt got one. Mama being mama renamed it the J- Hawk with a V fade lol. My sister didn’t get her hair cut but she did put her up in one. They did it for me since I cut my hair into one my isn’t going to fall all the way out but it is going to thin out so hopefully with my Mohawk it won’t look to bad. Thank you for all your prayers and words of encouragement I will keep everyone updated. 

Vegan Pineapple Roasted Chile Verde with Spanish Rice

Here’s what you get when you eat a small boiled potato with the skin: 3 grams cancer-fighting fiber, at least 20 percent of daily potassium and vitamin C needs, and significant amounts of niacin, folate and magnesium.

Chile Verde

  • Pineapple 1 cup (unsweetened or fresh)
  • 5 tomatillos
  • 4 cooked potatoes – keep skin on, cut into chunks (any kind)
  • White onions (1 cup diced)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 jalapeno
  • Salt

Chop the following into big chunks: pineapple, tomatillos, onions.  Place them into a baking pan and then add in whole garlic clove and whole jalapeno.  Broil on high heat for 20 minutes or until a little charred.  Place it all in a blender and mix for 2 minutes or until well blended.  Put in a saucepan, add cooked potatoes and cook on medium heat for 15 minutes.  Add salt to taste. 

 Spanish Rice

  • ½ white onion
  • 1 TBSP flax seed oil
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 8 oz. can chopped tomatoes (or 2 cups fresh diced tomatoes)
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cloves diced garlic
  • salt & pepper to taste

Heat oil on medium heat, add onions and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes.  Add rice and brown for 5 minutes.  Add chopped tomatoes and water and bring to a boil.  Cover and put on low until water is absorbed, about 30 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

*Top dish with cilantro and avocado slices

Sad week for those of us in the food justice space + honestly something we should all care about.

we lost a big battle in the labeling of GMOs. Thanks for nothing congress. This act called the “Safe and accurate food Liebling act” or the “deny Americans the right to know” or DARK act as many of us call it has passed.

This means it just got a whole lot trickier to identify truly healthy foods as GMOs can now be labeled as natural. More than ever I will be taking up the cause to help people identify and stick to WHOLE, NATURAL + UNPROCESSED foods.

Real foods don’t have a laundry list of non recognizable + genetically modified ingredients. If you know a little bit about sticker labeling for organic vs conventional foods you can save yourself a lot of time and health issues, as well as staying away from factory farmed and processed foods as much as possible.

The reason this particularly makes me sick, I have spent all day working on a billion dollar drug for opioid induced constipation, education pieces for doctors, when I know for a FACT real food would cure if not reverse all of that. As a person that was on opioids for many years and on medications like colace for the painful constipation it causes I know FIRST hand that real food reversed this condition for me.

Let’s speak on it, let’s share, let’s get aware, let’s get angry but PLEASE let’s change and take back our communities first. 💚✌🏾️🌿🌱

First week

(I wrote this two weeks ago just forgot to post this)

Chemo is the wrost descison I have ever made… I know I know I am supposed to be “positive”. Whatever!  Try shooting cell and immune system killing drugs in your body and then try to stay positive. Like whoever the genuis was that created these drugs need to kick rocks… better yet they need to take these drugs themselves I would love to see what they say about this “life saver”. Like how hard is it to give side effects that don’t make you wish you were dead? I mean they have broken down weed to see the side effects are sleepy, hungry, and happy like why can’t that be the same side effects for Carboplatin and Taxol just copy and paste that shit. (insert loud sigh) I know you are supposed to stay strong and dig deep but not today…. Today I get to rant and complain!

 I understand why now I was so against doing this again. This shit sucks! Everything taste like metal. If you can’t imgane things tasting like metal put a spoon in the freezer and then put it your mouth then times that by 10. If I don’t have the metal taste I have just a bad taste in my mouth everything I eat leaves a bad after taste. Which leads to being nausesous 90% of the time.Just to paint a picture my family and close friends know that I have a pretty strong stomach and I hardly throw up or get nauseous so this is some powerful stuff. Oh keep in my mind that I just had my first treatment on Tuesday and it is already kicking my ass. I still have 8 sessions/2 treatments left… Body aches, sleepless nights, faitgue, muscle aches, constipation, and no appetite. NO APPETITE! For someone who likes to eat no I’m sorry loves to eat that is a problem. And yes I’ve tried weed and it helps but, the aftertaste is unabriable right now so I don’t even bother. I just don’t get why trying to get well hurts so bad it never made any sense. I know i’m complaining things could be worse I guess… maybe the following week won’t be so bad. Until next time!

Faz bastante tempo que não venho aqui, e existem vários motivos .. Incontáveis ! O que posso dizer?! A vida não é fácil… Mas é muito boa, e sabemos disso não é ? Bom, eu ainda estou em tratamento de quimioterapia e não parece mas faz um ano e três meses, mas não me interprete mal, não estou reclamando, apenas relembrando. Durante esse tempo eu me senti como uma borboleta em metamorfose … É, talvez se tivesse sido apenas seis meses de tratamento eu não teria chegado ao ponto em que cheguei. Eu não me sinto frágil, nem doente .. Sinto somente vontade de seguir e provar ao mundo que a fraqueza não é o câncer, mas o medo. Tive que adiar todos os meus sonhos, meu coração foi dilacerado por pessoas menos especiais do que achei serem … Não é uma luta de um ano, mas, de seis .. E neste ultimo, aprendi que tenho raiva da fraqueza e muita pena de quem se entrega a ela. Aprendi que Deus está em todo lugar, que o amor move tudo .. Aprendi que a fé não se trata de religião mas de acreditar no impossível ! O mundo sempre vai ferir, magoar .. Impor limites, e não adianta se abater e sentir pena de si, porque a regra é a mesma pra todos: Só os fortes sobrevivem! Não digo sobreviver, do verbo “ manter-se de pé” mas, cair e levantar sem temer o próximo tombo, ter a capacidade de perceber que tudo é possível e mesmo que a gente morra, ter certeza de que não foi apenas um coadjuvante na história .. Não sei te dizer quando termino o tratamento, não sei te explicar como segura estou, mas posso garantir que não vou desistir ! O mundo esconde segredos, mas nossa mente esconde as respostas.. Viver não é fácil, mas é bem simples 😉

Tuesday morning turn up with the greens.
My green detox (kale, Apple, spinach, ginger, parsley, lemon, celery, turmeric) + loaded spinach Ezekiel toast w/ 2 tbsp mashed avocado + salsa fresca.

So much nutritional goodness in a simple meal. If you like spicy try the toast with a couple of dashes of cayenne. 💚🌿🌱🍃

#Cancer is a horrible disease. It especially hits close to home when it affects someone you know and care about. There ARE ways to help control the spread of cancer cells, but most doctors won’t tell you how. Cancer cells can NOT live in an #Alkaline environment, so #pHbalance is KEY. Please support this event and pray for Kazu! 🙏🏽 #86FEST #beatcancer #cancerawareness #cancerfree #cancerfighter (at Boba Bear)

Two years have passed. And I miss you more and more everyday. This past week I’ve done nothing but replay your last days in my head. And I remember everything so vividly. It would feel as if it were reality. I remember laying in the hospice reading books from the New Testament every night while replaying Hillsong’s Healer, High and Lifted Up, Where We Belong & Sing to the Lord. I remember personally talking to you two days before you passed. You probably didn’t even understand a word I was saying! But I am glad I got that chance to speak to you. What I do love about our last memory together were six days before you were sent to the hospice. I remember always being called by you every five minutes. I remember you telling me ‘I love you, too.’ And those were the last words I heard from you. I will always cherish that last moment hearing your voice. I miss you, mother dearest. I’m always thinking about you. I love you SO much. You will always be the strongest fighter in my life. #cancerfighter #restinpeace #motherdearest #twoyeardeathanniversary
