Oh dear lord

I don't know whether to be horrified or amused by this lol. I think the best part is the music playing in the background. Why the hell was this even made? Imagine if his family or co-workers saw this lol.

Hunk of the Month

The wonderful Fred over at Easy Fashion has added me to the links on his blog page. Thank you very much!

I'm a bit of a youtube lover and I like to watch a lot of vloggers (video bloggers). One of my favorites is BenLoka who is always hilarious in his videos. His newest one does not dissapoint- and happens to relate to a post I've done recently. PETA entered him into a contest 'Europe's Sexiest Vegetarian' and he did a video responding to that. I just wanted to add that guys who are vegetarians ARE HOT! Well, at least I think they are. Guys for some reason are supposed to love barbeque, hot dogs, burgers, etc (actually it's because during Medieval times women weren't given any meat since that was more expensive and men were given most of the meat). I think guys who are able to say 'Screw them!" to society and do something that's not 'typical' for their gender are attractive just for doing that. And it's because of this, that I'm making BenLoka the Hunk of the Month for February (although I do think he should cut his hair...). Also, he's hilarious.

btw, ignore the girl in the beginning of the video-that's not him!!

I am a horrible blogger

I know, I know- I haven't been a very good blogger lately. Bad me. I have a reason though! I've been doing lots of research and reading recently. I have been a pescetarian (someone who doesn't eat red meat, pork, or chicken but eats everything else) for about 5 years now mostly because of the health benefits and the fact that I feel happier and I have a lot more energy as an almost-vegetarian. Recently I've been doing some reading about preservatives, additives, and what exactly is in fish and dairy (as well as what diseases they cause) and I've decided to try and go vegan for a while.
Before all of you lose your minds and tell me I'm going to die, know this:
1)I feel even happier now that I've gone vegan
2)vegans live longer than people who eat fish or meat
3)I have more energy
4)I've also lost an inch off my hips and stomach since I started the transition about 2 and a half weeks ago
5)I eat and enjoy more food now than I did when I still ate fish, eggs, and dairy

I think a person's diet is very personal and that they should decide themselves what to put into their bodies- believe me I'm not preaching to you. I'm just saying what it's been like for ME. Some people's constitutions can't take the switch or they don't want to and that's fine! I just wanted to post all this cuz I, er, can.

Here's a typical days menu:
Decaffienated green tea
Pecan-encrusted vegan french toast
(protein, complex carbs, lots of vitamins and antioxidants)

Fattoush (Lebanese Bread Salad...don't let the salad part fool you this is DELICIOUS)
Fresh squeezed orange juice
(Complex carbs, calcium, protein, TONS of vitamins and minerals)

Snacks throughout the day
Vegan chocolate chip cookies (I like these MORE than the original)
Organic potato chips
Matzo bread with hummus
lots more!
(protein, calcium, complex carbs, tons of vitamins and minerals)

Vinadloo (an indian dish with tofu, peas, tomatoes, beans, rice SO GOOD)
Pita Bread to hold said vindaloo
(calcium, tofu, protein, TONS of vitamins and minerals)

As you can see- I am not in a protein or calcium deficiency. If you're interested in learning more about what's in your food (not necessarily about becoming vegan- I understand that's not for everyone) I recommend reading "Real Food, Fake Food" by Geri Harrington. I just finished it and it makes all processed and packaged foods seem revolting to me now. It's really good! If you're interested in eating healthier you should really read "Skinny Bitch" by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. It's HILARIOUS and really informative. They have an entire chapter on pooping I shit you not. And yes, the pun was intended.

It's funny b\c some people really think this way...

It's from a mid-90s BBC show. It helpfully illustrates the dangers of thinking while female, and it provides an example of what women should say.
