Chiquita Banana The Original Commercial

Every high carb vegan should see this video! Hell, everyone should! this commerial was made in the 1940s, yet people today still don’t know when to eat a banana. people who say “i like green bananas” aren’t educated on the importance of eating brown freckled bananas!!

“She walks with a cane, but she runs with the champions.” Ninety-nine year old Ida Keeling set a record for the 100-meter dash at the Gay Games 9 held in Akron, Ohio earlier this month. The 4-feet-6, 83 pound Great-great-grandmother and mother of four began competitive running at 67 years old after dealing with the loss of her two sons less than three years apart. To beat her depression, Ida’s daughter, Shelley, urged her to participate in a 5K race. After Ida’s first race, running became her therapy. In addition to running, Ida goes to the gym twice a week and practices yoga regularly. We are inspired by Ida’s consistency and her dedication to optimal health. via Instagram http://ift.tt/1ztCBWw

Go Ida!  I sure as heck want to aspire to be like when I reach our age.

This is what happens when a smoker quits. Pass it on.

This is so important

How does this not have more notes?! Seriously, take the time to read this because it could save a life. Or SEVERAL.

I like this better than the anti-smoking advertisements on TV that try to scare the shit out of you.

Someone forward this to Mr C.

Trying New Vegan Things!

So last night for dinner i tried corn pasta for the first time, which i felt tasted wayy better than the generic “regular” wheat pasta. it is much more expensive, it was $4.50 for a 12 oz package as opposed to the $1 12 oz package for wheat pasta which comes in all varieties of noodle shapes. for me, the corn pasta also digested a million times better. i think this is because it has MUCH fewer ingredients. on a related note, i’d had brown rice pasta before which was also an amazing new thing i’d tried.
I also tried to make a “sauce” out of canned crushed tomatoes that came in basil and oregano (which tasted great) and heated that on the stove with fresh spinach and adding the spinach was the best idea i’ve had in a long time! it was so amazing! yay!
i also for the first time, tried a sprinkle of nutritional yeast on the pasta dish i had concocted. it was alright.
also, this morning, for the first time, i tried to blend a watermelon and it was amazing! 

Corn pasta: great but better as a treat because it is expensive
Tomato/basil/oregano/spinach sauce: great! but sodium content is high
nutritional yeast: good but i’m still not sure what to put on it
blended watermelon: so good! yes! doing this more often!

highcarbvegan4ever asked:
i make my sushi with white rice, avo, cucumber, bell pepper is yummy! and carrots. also if you put hummus on the nori wrap before the rice it tastes delic! 😋

thank you for the awesome idea! mine was too “bland” i think… it just tasted like seaweed and rice XP blegh


So i just tried to make sushi with jasmine rice (i know it’s not sushi rice but the back of the nori paper i had bought said i could use white rice and add sushi vinegar which does anybody know about that??? i thought sushi rice was a specific type of rice, but can i make sushi rice out of jasmine rice?)
Anyway, all i used to roll the paper and rice was my hands (stay classy san diego) not the roller thing 
I wanted to keep it simple and so i used rice, nori, and avocado but what should i do next time to make it even cooler? what do you guys do to make nice sushi? i was thinking black sesame seeds? it’s just that i had recently tried sushi for the first time and i can’t get it out of my head so i wanted a simpler, low-salt, cheaper homemade method


Please stop funding the animal agriculture industry, it wastes more water than anything. Please stop funding the depletion and destruction of resources. 

Here is a link describing the way that animal agriculture in general pollutes the Earth/wastes resources: 

Here is a link that describes, in depth, the water footprint of animal agriculture compared to vegetables:

It is obvious that animal agriculture is literally drying up the Earth and destroying it in other ways as well. Please do not fund this.
