My chocolate attack!
I went a little crazy yesterday…have you ever had one of those days where you woke up pumped and had so much energy that even after a crazy workout you still needed to let it out?
I chose to do so by fueling my power into a baking frenzy. Upside? Lots of food. Down side? Lots of food. Now I have containersss of things to eat and a ticket to go upstate tomorrow. Oops.
Thankfully my efforts weren’t wasted as I mailed a bunch of my muffins to friends so I accomplished my goals of being a good samaritan and a chubs all in the same day.
These cookies were made hour three into my quest, when my sister made some coffee and I knew I just had to have some. I admit I was a little heavy handed on the coffee but anyone with an addiction will thank me. These cookies are super easy to make and take about 20 minutes total to do, have a lot of protein and even help clean out your insides, so eat up and thank me later.
2 cups oats
3 tbl black sesame seeds
1/2 tbl baking powder
5 tbl chocolate soy milk
3 tbl honey
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3 tbl coffee
2 tbl coconut oil
Blend everything together except the chips in a food processor, then bake at 375 for 10 minutes and chow down! My favorite part is the batter.
Homemade marinara and pesto sauce salad
This is what leftovers look like. Delicious, healthy and a quicker assembly time than a Big Mac. No brainer, no fattening dressing and an easy clean up too. I love salads for lunch and the leftovers salads always turn out to be one of the best ways to get nutrition midday without much thought.
As you may know, i am a huge fan of dumpster diving and a few days ago came home with 5 boxes of fresh basil, 20 tomatoes and and ton of fresh vegetables, so these recipes were kind of inevitable. Basil is a necessity in both of these guys, so make sure you stock up, especially since there is so much of it floating around (bad garbage pun). Go to your farmer’s market and smell, touch, taste and find clever ways to make awesome summer meals with all the veggies that are available to you now. Tomatoes, eggplants, and green beans galore are just ripe for the picking and would make great tapenades or salads as well,
2 garlic bulbs
4 celery stalks
3 bunches of basil
Start by chopping up the onion very finely and sauteing it in a big pot for ten minutes with a healthy amount of oil. Chop up the other veggies while you’re waiting, paying attention so that the onion doesn’t burn. Next add in your garlic, then your carrots to cook and finally your celery. After this has all cooked for about fifteen minutes, toss in the tomatoes and bring down to low. Simmer for about an hour then add in your bunches of chopped basil and simmer for another thirty minutes. Now add in desired amounts of salt and pepper, I used about 1 tbl of each, plus 2 tbl garlic and chili peppers. After you hit the two hour mark, you can serve. The longer you cook this the better it gets, it’s all a waiting game with the finicky marinara, so play your cards well to win.
3 bunches basil
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 tbl nutritional yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tbl garlic powder
1 garlic clove
2 tbl olive oil
Blend everything together in a food processor!

Indigenous people of Brazil trying to prevent their eviction from an old indigenous museum which they have been living in for the past 7 years.
On March 22nd all of the inhabitants and their supporters were forcibly removed or arrested.
The building is being destroyed to make a parking lot
…for the Olympics.
Fuck the Olympics.
what’s happening in Brazil is incredibly important and more people need to know about it. I only know what I’ve seen on tumblr so far, but it is abundantly clear that something is very wrong with the way the Brazilian government is treating its people. the word needs to get out and the government needs to be held responsible for its actions. but god forbid it interfere with the Olympics. and god forbid they put this story on CNN.
the revolution will not be televised. the media is not an ally. keep fighting for what’s right, Brazil, and we will keep sharing your story.
