What are you doing with your time to make the world better? Time is precious. I recalled in grade school there were a rule stated "use your time wisely." This rule always resonated with me because it made me always look at what I was doing in the time allotted to me. Basically, we have to use time in an impactful way. We have time to do what we desire to do, but it is up to us to use it. Be selfish with it because its Yours. We got this.😀💓
I need to take a deep breathe and say that this made my week. Vegan Chili Mac & Cheese. And it could not be easier!
The cheese sauce was just boiled and blended potatoes(2)🥔, carrots(2)🥕, onion(1), garlic(1), and nutritional yeast. I blended it with some of the cooking water from the pasta and the starch from that water gave the sauce the perfect texture!! For the chili I used some @fieldroastme meatloaf that I just crumbled along with a diced green bell pepper & that is all. Adding the chili mixture to the cheese and mixing in the macaroni - OOF, no words can describe how comforting and delicious this meal was. I think I’ll use the leftover sauce to drizzle over some baked tortilla chips or french fries🍟 (chili cheese fries anyone?) Anyways... MAKE THIS. MAKE IT. NOW. GO, MAKE IT.
Buddha Bowl again. Nachdem ich gestern meine Frau vom Hamburger Flughafen abgeholt habe sind wir heute viel Obst & Gemüse einkaufen gegangen um unseren Kühlschrank zu füllen. Nach einem erfrischenden Saft aus dem Entsafter gab es buntes Gemüse mit Falafel und Reis. 😋😍
I finally got around to watching Leonardo DiCaprio's documentary on climate change called Before the Flood. It is so incredibly heart breaking. It is hard not to feel pessimistic about the future of our planet 😕 The film is available for free on the National Geographic YouTube channel. Definitely a must see. #veganfortheplanet#vegan#science
Inktober day 18. Filthy.
A cock with a filthy mouth. Did you know in the egg industry day old male chicks are ground up alive or gassed simply because they do not lay eggs? Their female counterparts do not have it much better as most live out their lives in tiny cages packed with several other hens or in a "cage free" warehouse where they will never be out in the sun or touch grass. Once they are considered spent (after a couple years when their egg production goes down) they are then sent to slaughter. So I concur Mr. Rooster. No animals should be treated this way. Please consider going vegan to stop supporting these practices. #inktober#inktober2017#sakurainktober#vegan#vegantruth#govegan#artistsoninstagram#artistsofinstagram#veganfortheanimals#compassionoverkilling#veganfortheplanet @sakuraofamerica
Carbs. Best friend or worst enemy? 🤔
How about vital for our existence? Every cell in our bodies run off glucose. However, not all carbs were created equal. .
There are two types of carbs, similarly to women, being simple and complex (although the overwhelming majority of women fall into the latter category) 💁🏼 (also I’m kidding, feminists please don’t kill me in my sleep 🤦🏼♀️
If you want to eat simple carbs, you may as well eat paper because they probably have about the same nutritional value. Simple carbs contain mostly sugar that gets absorbed and released into our bodies at lightning speed resulting in sugar highs and lows and leave you craving more. Simple carbs include white rice, most cereals, white pastas, white bread, muffins, biscuits etc. 🥖🥐🥞🍰🍪
Complex carbs are the good guys. They contain starch and fibre, resulting in a gradual release of glucose, giving us a more stable source of energy, and leaving us feeling satisfied for longer. Complex carbs include all the fruits and veggies and grains like quinoa, millet, and brown rice and food that has been made with whole wheat, rather than bleached cake flour. 🍠🌽🍅🍌 #eatyourveggies ✌🏼

So what is everyone waiting for? How much more information do people need? For those of you with children, let me ask you, what kind of world will you be leaving them? All the sacrificing for education, dance classes, sports and whatever else you dedicate your time, money and effort to are all useless if you don't ensure they have a planet to enjoy them on. It's a simple, basic change in diet, are your children and their future not worth it?
Do some research, give a shit...we all have an obligation to ensure that future generations have a healthy planet to live on. -
STEP OUT OF THE BOX!
You do realize that following the crowd doesn’t help you find your creativity. For one to truly be their true self, they must step out of the box and challenge the status quo. Understand that you will not please everyone no matter what you do, so it’s best to be the best you that you can be in this life. Set your own trend, design your life, it is yours if you understand what I mean. As you grow, teach with compassion and minds can be changed, Plant the seeds of encouragement more than gossip. We can change this world for the better 🌱. 📸: @veroveganlove
