or at least pescetarian as a starting point. I recently watched Earthlings and it made me sick. The cruelty with which we treat the animals we raise for food is absolutely inhumane and irresponsible. They live in conditions completely against their natural instincts and their deaths are neither quick nor merciful. I am not against killing animals for meat as food; I believe that animal meat can be a healthy part of the human diet. However, I do not believe in eating meat that has been raised this way; it’s unethical. 

If you’re interested in watching this documentary here is the link to watch it for free.

WARNING: It is extremely graphic and gruesome. I consider myself pretty thick skinned with blood and guts, but I had to watch this over the course of a couple of days because it can be too much. 






Doughnuts are bad for you.

-2 medium peeled and mashed sweet potatoes 

-1 egg + 1 egg white 
-1/4 tsp of baking powder
-1 tsp of vanilla
-2tbsp brown sugar 
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/2 cup cocoa powder 
-2 tbsp almond butter


1. preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit

2. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT almond butter. If the batter is too thick add a splash of your milk of choice

3. Pour batter into a greased 8x8 baking pan

4. Drizzle the almond butter on top and swirl with a fork

5. Bake at 325 for 18 minutes

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezey Larabars!

I love larabars and I love anything lemon flavored. What I don’t love is Larabar’s magical ability to drain my wallet so I made my own. I added in oats two thicken up the bar and to decrease the nut content so they are a bit lower in fat. 


-juice and zest of one SMALL lemon. use half a lemon if your lemon is big.

-2 tbsp shredded coconut

-1/4 cup cashew

-1/2 cup dates

-5 tbsp rolled oats


1. blend cashews, dates, coconut, lemon zest and juice in the blender until smooth.

2. scoop out batter and knead in oats

3. roll out into a long rectangle

4. cool in fridge for one hour until firm

5. cut into 8 bars.

Each bar is approximately 100 calories. 

Wow just noticed this post has almost 400 notes. This is crazy!

Looking back at my food posts and I REALLY want to make these again. But..college dorm probs. SUMMER COME FASTER

Really not feeling physics, or history, or any of the shit load of stuff i have to do today. So I’m just gonna sit here, and play with my water bottle. 


So Spring has finally decided to arrive in B’more so I decided to go running outside today. Ran down to the harbor, Fed hill, Little Italy, and back. Woke up in a really shitty mood, so the chilly air and sunshine was definitely what I needed. Hell week next this week, time to hit the books. 

Sorry I haven’t been posting much. This semester is CRAZYY. I’ve never been so sleep deprived, stressed, and worked so hard. 



Hey guys! I’ve been cleaning out my closet and selling some stuff on ebay. I just listed this NEW WITH TAG Under Armour workout tank. It’s totally new, never been worn. It’s usually $23.00 retail price but I’m listing it with a starting bid of $11.99 with FREE SHIPPING. It’s in perfect condition; I’m only selling it because it’s not really my style of workout clothes. 

Check it out!



mantra for a bad body image day: today I couldn’t see my abs and it didn’t make me matter any less.

I needed this today
