Hey!!! So as you probably know i’m back from my holiday trip with my family! It was great!!! We had lots and lots of fun!!! And i wanted to post it cause when we were there i said to myself I HAVE to take a picture drinking a blue drink, i just HAVE to. It was my duty as a Karamatsu girl! So it was hilarious cause, you see, i don’t drink, i don’t like the taste of alcohol, and when i was there i ordered this really good drink called Bananamama (freaking delicious) but without alcohol. So, i didn’t know anything about drinks but i had to order a blue one, so i asked for just that! There was this really nice lady who would go asking if anyone wanted anything to drink, she was really pretty and nice, and so i asked her “Do you have any blue drinks?” and she was like yes of course, we have the… and i don’t remember the name, it was something about coco with something else, and i was just like “…sure. But it’s blue right?”
So there it is! I was so happy with my blue drink!! And it wasn’t bad, the first taste was realy good, i just didn’t like the after taste of alcohol in it.
Anyway, it was fun to just go and ask for a blue drink XD
I’m collecting awesome video recipes and putting them HERE. I just added one of my favorites by Isa Chandra… Roasted Red Pepper Mac n Cheese! It’s so freak’n delicious. If you have any vegan recipes you think I should add, let me know!
So I tried making @lvl1-chef’s butterscotch cinnamon pie recipe today. It took about 6 hours to finish and an extra two of waiting. I made everything from scratch.
So how’d it turn out?
IT’S ONE OF THE BEST PIES I’VE EVER MADE. My 78 year old nana said it might be the best pie she’s ever had.
The crust tastes like a butter cookie, it’s so sweet and compliments the filling so well - even with my “too salty” whipped cream it’s taste shines through beautifully, actually complimented by the salt. I am so, so glad I made this pie today, because now I get to enjoy it.
Thank you @lvl1-chef for this recipe, goat mom would be so proud.
You wanna be healthy and shit? Get out of this queue in Starbucks, head home and make a freaking delicious smoothie. And remember to put on a lid before you turn on the blender.
#1 ‘It couldn’t get more tropical than
½ of a fresh pineapple
1-2 cm of fresh ginger
Throw everything into a blender, add some water. Blend until smooth. This smoothie helps with swelling, excretion of toxins and
accelerates digestion of protein&carbohydrates.
#2 ‘I’m greening right now.’ (horrible joke sorry
handful of fresh parsley
cm of fresh ginger
water. Blend it up. It contains so much vitamin C that it’s close to an
handful of spinach
handful of kale
tablespoon of chia seeds
until smooth. Chia seeds are the great source of potassium, zinc, calcium,
copper, omega-3&omega-6 fatty acids, PROTEIN! Just trust me, you’ll love
it. Chia seeds make a smoothie thicker which means not getting hungry right
after drinking it!
#4 ‘It ain’t sweet, but hey, it’s
of a red bell pepper
teaspoon of flaxseed oil
pinch of salt&pepper
a cup of water
So much potassium. So much vitamin C. It helps with inflammations, it helps
with everything. Drink it once in a while.
#5 ‘I really crave a chocolate bar
of your choice – it can be almond, cow’s milk, oat, whatever you’d like!
tablespoons of cacao powder
dates (depends of how sweet you like it)
teaspoon of smooth peanut butter (you cannot go wrong with PB)
blend, blend. Enjoy your chocolate drink.
Give up on that
Starbucks coffee, get yourself a smoothie, make your body happy. A portion of
fiber a day, makes your body’s problems go away (I came up with this a second

I tried to make this vegan pasta sauce that is supposed to be healthy out of nutritional yeast, reduced fat coconut milk, and pumpkin and oh god the coconut milk is so perfumey I couldn’t stomach it but Bell thinks it’s freaking delicious so at least it won’t get wasted 🤷♀️
This recipe is one taken straight out of my mother’s kitchen! She is an incredible baker, and we always had cookies around the house growing up & always made from scratch. And these are freaking delicious, and the recipe she uses. No idea where it originated from!
½ cup sweet butter
1/3 cup peanut butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 egg white
Preheat oven to 375
Thoroughly grease cookie sheet.
Cream Butter and peanut butter.
Add the sugars, egg, vanilla and dry ingredients
Shape into balls.
Dip each ball in egg white, then in sugar, and place on cookie sheet
Bake 8 minutes
Remove from oven and top each cookie with a Hershey’s kiss pressed firmly into cookie so that it cracks around edges.
Return to oven and bake 2 to 5 minutes until golden brown
Sorry for my absences this week. it’s midterm exam time again, and i have finals at the end of next month >.> but here’s a quick rundown of my activity the last few days:
Monday was a 5 km, 3 laps (1.5 km, approx) around the trails
Tuesday was a lazy day because my foot was acting up :(
Wednesday I did good… 2.5 laps on the figure 8 circuit (just under 3 km per lap) for 8 km
Thursday I had to work, but I walked both ways again and got some excercise in there :)
I also made some freaking delicious energy bars on wednesday, using seeds and nuts and agave syrup/honey. I have chia seed and mocha, almond and coconut and peanut butter and chocolate… they’re like KIND bars, except I made them at about 1/5 of the cost and more protein/fibre and micronutrients per bar :)
