Dick Trickle, Yes That’s His Real Name, Commits Suicide

May 16, 2013 in dick trickle, Measure Your Garbage

Dick Trickle, who was known for smoking during yellow flags, commits suicide. Now before you start getting rude and chucklin’ at the name I need to inform you that’s his real name… Show respect for the dead would ya! But I’ll be honest with you, I have a REAL hard time with anyone who takes their own life. reported by myfox8.com: …The Lincoln County Communications Center received a call apparently from the victim that “there would be a dead body and it would be his”…. When communications workers attempted to call the number back, no one answered. The first emergency units arriving on the scene located the body lying near the victim’s pickup truck. When it comes to suicide my view is rather guff. I find it to be a completely selfish act that haunts the people who surrounded that particular individual. Trickle took the easy way out while his

Get Healthy Summit Interviews The Creator of One Fit Mother

May 16, 2013 in Get Healthy Summit, Heather Valentine

Get Healthy Summit interviews Heather Valentine tonight!  Heather is a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritionist who believes in building your best body from the inside out. Growing up playing multiple sports, Heather always felt a connection to fitness.  However, in her 20s with a changing metabolism and little understanding of food, she thought the key to fitting into her jeans was diet hopping sprinkled with sporadic exercise.   And while diet soda Thursdays and hours on a treadmill took a lot of willpower and commitment, she wasn’t getting the results she wanted – and she certainly wasn’t focused on overall health. Motherhood was the catalyst that drove Heather to search for balance between exercise and nutrition.  Faced with an extra 70 pounds to lose she sought out ways to eat healthier, exercise smarter and make it work in the business of being a mom.  It became

Amy Bouzaglo, Amanda Bossingham & Crazy Amy B, What Do They Have In Common?

May 15, 2013 in Measure Your Garbage, Restaurant Reviews

Amy Bouzaglo, Amanda Bossingham & Crazy Amy B; what do they have in common? Not sure if they’re the same person but I do know they all scare the living shit out of me! I just watched a video of  a recent episode of Chef Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. A fly landed on my lower lip because I was so awe stricken.

Drew Canole & Get Healthy Summit combined forces and had a phenomenal interview about detoxing the body through juicing. It was such a good conversation I started juicing again the very next morning… Now, I realize you may be asking yourself, “What in the hell is this guy talking about?” and you have every reason in the world to react that way.

Vegan Enchilada Sauce From Scratch

January 14, 2013 in Green Lifestyling, Vegan Recipes

Homemade vegan enchilada sauce is the way to go for my family and I for two simple reasons. The first one is pretty obvious to the everyday, health aware individual; I know EXACTLY what’s in it because I made it myself! Sure I’ve heard Old El Paso enchilada sauce is vegan but I haven’t contacted the company personally to find out. The second reason is IT’S 5 TIMES BETTER THEN ANY STORE BOUGHT! (in my opinion at least)… I also like the fact that I can customize the flavor or hotness of the sauce depending on my mood for the day so enjoy!   Vegan Enchilada Sauce yields approx. 32-33 oz. Ingredients 4 tbsp. Chili Powder. If making from scratch use: 2 tsp. cayenne, paprika, black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. 1 1/2 tsp. Cumin 1 tbsp. cane sugar (eliminate if you like it nice and spicy) 1 tbsp.

Mini Taco Pizzas For The Raw Food Eater

January 5, 2013 in Measure Your Garbage, Raw Food Recipes

When I read about the Mini Taco Pizzas I was a little surprised. You see, I started eating completely vegan in July of 2012 and have been doing research and dabbling in going completely raw. I thought there was only one reason why I hadn’t dove head first into raw eating was lack of knowledge and then I realized that was also mixed with a lot of fear. Why? Fear of the unknown my friends! I don’t know a single raw food eater so I’m really intimidated by it. If you aren’t familiar with what “eating raw” means then let me give a little background… food can’t be heated over 118 degrees fahrenheit (so I’ve been told) lemon juice as the only preservative buy organic whenever possible only drink filtered or well water …just to name off a few basics, but I DEFINITELY need to learn more… obviously! So while

Will Obama Call on the Military to Disarm Americans?

January 2, 2013 in Human Rights, Military, New World Order

“Obama Would Call on Military to Disarm Americans During National Emergency” is the headline that blasted me in the face when I went to infowars.com. Now, I didn’t research or write this article but I thought it was so important I decided to spread the word on my blog; for the people who don’t follow or know who Alex Jones is. *this isn’t word of mouth… there are links to actual leaked documents provided in the original post at infowars.com “The blueprint for how Americans would be disarmed during a declared civil emergency is contained in an Army manual that outlines a plan to confiscate firearms to prevent them falling into the hands of rioters or dissidents. Given the imminent introduction of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s draconian gun control legislation, which would instantly criminalize millions of gun owners in the United States if passed, concerns that the Obama administration could launch a

Vegan 3 Bean Chili With Sun Dried Tomato & Basil Tofurkey Sausage

December 10, 2012 in Green Lifestyling, Plant Based Diet, Vegan Recipes

The vegan 3 bean chili with sun-dried tomato and basil Tofurkey sausage was a vegan recipe that came together like the Monster of Frankenstein; an idea from a recipe here, some extra beans lying around in the cabinet there and finished off with a little flavored fake sausage over wild long grain rice. But I’m sure my chili tastes better then a rotting monster (or at least I hope…) I want to apologize in advance for the horrible pic of the vegan 3 bean chili. The entire time I was prepping and cooking this my kids were constantly hanging out in the kitchen with their mouths open like baby birds wanting to sample every stage of the cooking process. By the time it was complete there wasn’t nearly as much as planned and flew out of the pot so fast I didn’t get the vegan cornbread done and served with

Zingy VegFu Pockets

December 7, 2012 in Green Lifestyling, Plant Based Diet

The Zingy VegFu Pocket is the perfect example of a recipe that flopped as the original idea but turned into something outstanding and unexpected that my family has asked me to make again and again. The original recipe I found online was planned as a vegetarian tofu burger but called for eggs, which I do not eat. I’ll make my family organic egg white omelets when they crave it but I don’t eat it. I REALLY wanted to eat this tofu burger so I decided to try mashed black beans as the binder instead of eggs. I formed the tofu, corn and black bean mixture into patties and cooked them for the allotted time. When I pulled the burgers out of the oven to turn them they simply fell apart. At first I got a little frustrated and actually thought about tossing the entire thing in the trash. After I

What Diabolical Messages Are In Your Kid’s Favorite Disney Cartoon?

August 27, 2012 in Human Rights, Measure Your Garbage, Monsanto, New World Order

Do you know what kind of messages are being delivered in your kid’s favorite Disney cartoon? Lucky for my children they are as plain as day for me. Ever since I was a child I loved comic books and did a little collecting for awhile with my allowance money. Stuff like the original print of The Killing Joke, Legend of The Dark Knight, X-Men, Excalibur, Avengers etc., so when Disney began running a new animated Avengers series I began DVR’ing it for the kids… Yeah for the kids… That’s my story… That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!

The Spring Hill Hummus Pocket Makes a Great Sandwich

August 15, 2012 in Vegetarian Recipes

The Spring Hill Hummus Pocket makes a great sandwich and that’s no lie! This is a hummus pocket I whipped up one night after a long day of yard work and didn’t have the time to make something fresh. Fortunately it was one of those nights where I had the exact pre-made food in the fridge to create a perfect left-overs sandwich for dinner accompanied by an organic lettuce mix I bought at the store. Now remember, this is a sandwich that was made with left overs, to cook this from scratch will take a little time. For your convenience I’ve linked the ingredients that will have to be made individually to the actual recipes on my site. For instance the hummus will have to be made as well as the olive oil fried potatoes. Ingredients per sandwich 2 tbs hummus 3 slices avocado diced 1/4 cup sauteed kale 2

Immortality 2045, Is Humanity Ready To Be Wiped Out?

August 6, 2012 in Human Rights, Measure Your Garbage

A neat little conference called Immortality 2045 got together in 2011 in Russia and decided it was up to them to wipe out the current human and upload our brain information into holographic avatars and live forever. I don’t know about you but I feel very comfortable knowing that a handful of people have decided, for the entire human race, that our current philosophies, ethics, ideologies, culture and even metaphysics are wrong and we need new ones. What I love most about the video below is they give a timeline for how their project will come to fruition. Right-off-the-bat they say in “2012 – 2013 the global economic and social crises are exacerbated. The debates on the global paradigm of future development intensifies.” When I read that I see a few hidden messages… Do You? 1. “…global and social crises are exacerbated” – ex·ac·er·bate: To increase the severity, violence, or

Hummus Nutrition And How To Make It

July 16, 2012 in Nutritional Facts, Vegetarian Recipes

Hummus and its nutritional benefits to the body have been talked about as far back as Plato and Socrates and has been a staple of the Egyptian diet throughout history. This excellent dip or spread is spelled many different ways such as: hommus, hommos, hummous, houmous , hamos, and is actually the Arabic word for chick pea. It is believed that chick peas have existed since prehistoric times, thriving in the hanging gardens of Babylon. Even though the exact origins of hummus can not be exacted, it has been a part of the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean diet for thousands of years. But what is definitely know is hummus made it’s way into America in the early 1900′s when large numbers of East Europeans and Middle Eastern people began to flood into the country and boy am I glad they brought the recipe with them!

I Swear I Got Herpes From A Mosquito Honey!

July 12, 2012 in FDA, Genetically Modified Animals, Wildlife

I was listening to the Alex Jones show today and he was interviewing Hadyn Parry, the CEO of Oxitech. This company, which does a lot of work/testing in Brazil, has genetically modified the males of a mosquitoes strain called Aedes aegypti to be sterile. That way when the lab altered mosquito is released into the wild it will compete with wild males to breed with the females of the same strain. Why are they trying to reduce the ‘skeeter population you ask? The Aedes aegypti strain spreads a disease called dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever, and there isn’t an insulin. This disease affects between 50 – 100 million people, each year, in the tropics and subtropics. It causes fever, muscle and joint pain, a skin rash that looks like measles and possible dengue shock syndrome where dangerously low blood pressure occurs. The lab altered males breed and the offspring,

Quinoa Veggie Patties

These quinoa veggie patties really are to kill for! My family most certainly didn’t think they would like them. This recipe will make approximately 6 patties at a size of around 3-4 inches a piece. I doubled the recipe and made ten 5 – 5.5 inch patties so I can have five for the next day! Before you even get started I do have to point out you’ll need a food processor for this. I remember, before I got mine, I wanted to do this recipe so bad and couldn’t! When I finally DID get mine I whipped out this recipe, dove right in and my family absolutely loved it! The biggest draw back to this meal is it takes a long time to make, I won’t lie to ya! I was told the entire thing can be done in 30 minutes… NO WAY! But the reward is well worth

Cooking Quinoa In 3 Easy Steps

July 10, 2012 in Nutritional Facts, Plant Based Diet, Vegetarian Recipes

Cooking quinoa can be done in three simple steps but before we get into that how ’bout we cover a little history of this wonder crop. The Incas believed the crop was sacred and called it chisaya mama or ‘mother of all grains’. Apparently during the European conquest of South America, the conquistadors hated quinoa because of how important it was during non-Christian ceremonies and dubbed it ‘food for Indians’. The colonists even tried to stop all growing of quinoa forcing the Incas to cultivate wheat instead. One thing I was most certainly not aware of was the fact this wonderful “grain” isn’t a grain at all! Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is in the grass family and is more closely related to beets and spinach than any grain. This vegetable is a great source of protein and fiber as well as very low in cholesterol and sodium. Here’s what the “SkinnyChef”

Cucumber Nutrition, What Is It Exactly?

“Cucumber nutrition. What is it exactly?’ is what my six year old asked me this morning with a curious, sideways look. It was such a cool question from a little kid I had to post about it. Luckily my entire family loves cucumbers and anything that has cucumbers in it, on it or even near it. It isn’t unusual for us to have  cold, sliced cucumbers tossed with very little raspberry vinaigrette, lemon juice for me, and a big old glass of orange juice or three for the kids, small glass for me and two large glasses of filtered water. One of the really cool things about switching to a plant-based diet is once the meat is wiped out there are all kinds of eating stereotypes that can be shattered. For instance one of my families favorite dishes can be eaten for any meal. It’s a blend of cous cous,

Obamacare DOES NOT Cover Pre-existing Conditions In Kids

All they want is more money so if we research, hardcore, before we spend it we can find out where it is going.

Use Vinegar To Kill Weeds Naturally And Tell Monsanto And Its Roundup To Go “F” Themselves

June 27, 2012 in Animal Rights, EPA, FDA, Human Rights, Monsanto, Natural Weed Killer, Vinegar

RoundUp is used to kill weeds, grass, poison ivy and tree stumps for the general public and used as a bi-active herbicide for commercial farming. Glyphosate (Roundup) is one of the most toxic herbicides, and is the third most commonly reported cause of pesticide related illness among agricultural workers. Products containing glyphosate also contain other compounds, which can be toxic. DANGERS: toxic to earthworms, beneficial insects, birds and mammals and destroys the vegetation on which they depend for food and shelter, learning disabilities and behavior problems in children, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, nerve, and respiratory damage, reproductive damage as well as damage to the kidney and liver, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, shall I go on? And yet the EPA and FDA idly stand by and watch us rot away… But HEY! Don’t worry people… Instead of pulling RoundUp off the market they simply genetically modified the crops to withstand RoundUp.

The movie has changed they way I’ll feed my family and myself forever.

It is what it is… nothing more, nothing less… So when your meat friendly comrades know in advance you follow a plant-based diet they tend to bring their own snacks and munchies when you’re having a get-together or an MMA title fight party. Usually during these types of events you’re the only VegHead in a sea of MeatHeads, but

Excuse Me Waiter, But There’s Pus In My Milk

June 24, 2012 in Animal Rights, Human Rights

In 1993 the FDA approved a genetically engineered drug created by the Monsanto Corporation called Posilac which contains recombinant bovine somatotropin or rBST. It was created for dairy farmers so they can maximize profits by injecting the hormone into dairy cows forcing them to produce more milk. Sounds good in theory… Too bad rBST elevates a growth hormone that both humans and cows carry called IGF-1. Numerous studies reveal elevated levels of IGF-1 in the cows milk does not break down in the human digestive system therefore is absorbed into the bloodstream. Why is this bad? Excessive amounts of IGF-1 has been linked to lung, breast, colon, prostate and colorectal cancer. But lets just say you’re the type of person who isn’t worried about possible cancer afflictions in the future so you’ll still give milk a go each morning with your Frankenberry cereal… cool!

Mango, Pineapple and Coconut Milk Smoothie

June 23, 2012 in Beverages, Vegetarian Recipes

This anytime smoothie is an especially wonderful beverage for breakfast, just ask my kids! 1 Pineapple 1 Mango 1/2 cup Coconut Milk Ice -  (as much or as little as you like)   Peel then cut fruit into pieces small enough to accommodate your blender. If your blender is as crappy as mine don’t throw all the fruit into the blender at once. If you do you’ll be forced to take the lid off, mash the fruit down with a wooden spoon while blending it at the same time and screaming colorful profanities… not very safe! So slowly add the fruit along with the coconut milk and blend that mixture first. Next you add the ice.  Just like the fruit and coconut milk, add the ice slowly to make the process easier, pour it into a pretty lil’ cup and PRESTO! You have a kick-butt smoothie! Enjoy!
