That’s BANANAS!

»Posted by on Jul 28, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Fruit is amazing! I’m a big fan.  There isn’t one kind of fruit that I’ve tried that I don’t like. I even like dried fruit, especially apricots…so so good. When I was a kid I wouldn’t eat prunes because I associated them with making you poop or old people, it wasn’t until I was maybe 17 that I realized they are literally just dried plums…yumm!

Here in beautiful Florida we are super spoiled when it comes to fruit, we can get oranges, grapefruits, lemons, peaches, tangerines, tangelos, bananas and even pineapples right out of your yard. I think in almost every house I’ve ever lived in we had some type of fruit tree in the yard..oh and kumquats, how could I forget those little devils! Growing pineapples in your yard is pretty awesome, they usually don’t get as big as the ones in the store but wow they are so darn amazing! You have to be careful though because raccoons with take big bites out of them and then clearly you cant eat them! My mom planted little mini banana “trees” in our yard , and they produced the cutest little bananas, she usually made bread with them, delicious.

Ewwww….you put THAT in your mouth?!

Everyone has a few things they would never ever put in your mouth, right?! For me its the usual suspects..fish eyes, brains, kidneys ummm…anything raw (meat wise, shudders), and I dont generally eat fish..there’s just something about eating something that lives “breathes” and eats its own urine and feces, gross. All over the world there are foods that are considered a delicacy that some other countries people find appalling.  In some places they eat kangaroo on the norm, personally I could never eat one…they are just too darn cute! Of course its normal here to eat lamb and I can’t do that either…again they are adorable. There’s also some fruit that tastes like rotten eggs and looks like them too…ummm..nah, I’m good. Here in the beautiful USA, people eat opossum, armadillo, raccoon, snake, gator (which even I love) and even dog which is just down right mean as heck!

Sushi is super big right now, there’s sushi joints all over the place and that means my favorite thing…fish and raw fish, yuck! I will eat sushi but only the cooked kind which of course limits my options, and it can’t be fish..it has to be crab or shrimp, and it has to be super cold…room temperature and I’m out!

Before you put that weird thing in your mouth…think if someone else you know would too, and if not…take a selfie and post away just to creep people out!

Just the Facts, Jack!

It takes 2500 gallons of water to make 1 pound of beef.

Food poisoning usually comes from meat.

Oreos are vegan.

Vegan “food” is generally low in calories.

Pigs are smarter than dogs.

Save the environment…something about killing less tress because they’re not cleared for growing crops to feed animals (Don’t we need crops to grow veggies…for vegans to eat?)

 

I’m sure there are tons of more friendly vegan facts that would easily convert you from eating delicious steak and bacon pizza, but I’m still not convinced. I love my veggies don’t get me wrong, especially trying different ones I’ve never heard of or that I flat out refused to eat when I was younger…like brussel sprouts, man they are AMAZING!! I’m all about living a healthier lifestyle, I wish I had the willpower to do it myself but I could not give up chicken. I did give up beef for 2 months because cows are just so darn cute…but that veggie burger just couldn’t compete with the burgers on the grill!

Vegan “Butter”

»Posted by on Jul 27, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We were watching TV this weekend and I see a commercial for “I Cant Believe It’s Not Butter” and there’s all different kinds now, like low sodium, low carb….and one for vegans. What do you put vegan “butter” on? Vegan bread? Isn’t that basically putting garbage on cardboard? This confuses me so much.  Kinda like pasta made out of zucchini…which is not pasta at all, its not even the same texture or even close…like putting worms in your mouth and not vomiting. Now I will openly admit my eating habits are absolute garbage, so I should not pass judgement…but clearly I don’t care.  I try to be an open minded person, sometimes I fail at it..like now..vegan fake butter..smh.

Get a job, you dirty hippie!!!

When my oldest brother was abut 21 he decided he was going to “travel” the country. Now, keep in mind this was in the 80’s. He had no job, no savings and a car my dad bought him when he was 17. So when this genius came to my parents with his bright idea I fully expected them to tell him no way and get a job you dirty hippie! But in true super supportive fashion, pops said..Okay, here’s a few hundred bucks to get you started, go enjoy life and when you’re ready to be a grown up…come home. So, he packed up some stuff, picked up a buddy, and off they went.

I was like 8 so I didn’t understand any of this. I knew mom and dad worked so we could live. I was very concerned for my brother…I asked my dad…”How is he going to live dad? How is he going to have dinner? How is he going to shower and go potty if he doesn’t have a home?” The day he left, I cried allllll day. I thought for sure something bad was going to happen to him. Big brother sent us postcards from cool places, and called once a week or so just to check in. This lasted abut 7 months, which at 8 felt like forever and then one day…out of nowhere…there he was, in the living room when I woke up for school! I was ecstatic, I screamed with delight, jumped into his arms and cried…

 

Moral of the story…you dirty vegans dont have to work to enjoy life.
