“The way we see it, the sister is also a revolutionary, and she has to be able to defend herself, just like we do. She has to learn to shoot, just like we do. Because the pigs in the system don’t care that she’s a sister; they brutalize her just the same.”

– Black Panther Party Chairman Bobby Seale, 1970

Beauty Juice

This juice will help to rid your body of toxins and improve kidney function, leading to healthy glowing skin. I try to drink lemon water every morning but this day I wanted to switch things up so I threw these ingredients into the juicer and drank up!! This was a breakfast substitute because I was in a rush (a late breakfast, only 1.5 hours before lunch…)

Orange + Apple + Celery + Lemon + Ginger Juice Recipe

  • 2 oranges
  • 1 Apples
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1 lemon
  • Ginger, to taste (I used 4oz of brewed Yogi Ginger Tea)

This recipe made about 22 oz. The mason jar only holds around 18 (If I fill to the rim) so I gave the rest to my daughter. We loved it!!!

I use a Jack Lalanne Power Juicer Deluxe

SUPER Kale Quinoa and Mushroom Pilaf!!!

I am a self proclaimed sometimes-a-tarian…What this means is that I will go any number of months without eating meat at all but I am usually a pescatarian ( I eat fish and seafood) and I will occasionally eat meats. I choose not to eat meat that often for environmental, ethical, and health reasons. When I do purchase meat at the store it is organic, free-range, and vegetarian fed; this includes my eggs… Now with that miniature rant out of the way here is my Vegan Kale, Mushroom, Quinoa Pilaf!!!quin1-001

Radiating in Autumn

Autumn 2013

“You surrender to a lot of things which are not worthy of you. I wish you would surrender to your radiance … your integrity … your beautiful human grace.” – Yogi Bhajan

I am beginning this fall season feeling all tingly… The school year began great, my attitude has been wonderful, my eating habits are improving, and I slowly (but surely) becoming a beast in the gym!! Not only do I feel good I think I am starting to look better too, my radiance is emanating!! Friends and family members who did not see me all summer, have been telling me that I am glowing, or that I have a glow…. hmmm 😀 😀 😀 I like that!! This is a good GREAT thing; when others can see your radiance from the outside you know there is something good brewing inside… 🙂  Well I plan to keep nurturing it and passing it on.

Oh how I love this snuggly season.
