Non-Vegetarian Cookies

I am always reading ingredients. At first, it was simply to find out what products contained animal ingredients, and which ones don't. Now, I find myself fascinated with the ingredients used to make certain foods.

Peak Freans Digestive cookies - one of the first ingredients is... get this... are you ready for it...?


I'm serious.

How disgusting. Imagine you're having some tea and cookies and you realize that you're eating beef fat. ugh.

i love blueberries

a friend gave me a gigantic box of blueberries as a housewarming present and i don't think i can think of a better present. blueberries are delicious and extremely nutritious (full of cancer fighting antioxidants).

I just made this smoothie.. at first i didn't add a banana, because my bananas are kind of green, but i added one after all because a smoothie just doesn't taste "complete" without a banana.

3 tbsp frozen blueberries
1 banana
1/2 cup cherry juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tbsp protein powder (i'm a big VEGA fan, but i'm out right now... so i used SoyOne)
1 tsp maple syrup


Grist makes me giggle

Dear Canada, if you care at all about the earth, you'll get rid of all your beer fridges. And if you care at all about peaceful international relations, you'll send your surplus booze our way. Love, America.
