Vegan Jerky Review!

vegan jerky

Yes, you read correctly! There is such thing as vegan jerky ladies and gentlemen. Today was my first time trying it, and it was delicious. I haven’t posted anything with a bad taste, so trust me when I say, it’s good!



Back when I used to eat meat, I loved, absolutely loved beef jerky. I would sit in my dorm room when I was a freshmen and just horde a bunch of packets of jerky in my snack box. The vegan jerky taste slightly reminds me of a slim jim.


I definitely recommend the switch from regular jerky to vegan jerky. Louisville’s Black Pepper flavored jerky is non GMO, gluten free, vegan, and it has a mild taste (so it won’t be too spicy for ya). I can’t get enough of this yummy vegan snack. Like I said, you should definitely try it out, you won’t be disappointed.

Trader Joe’s Vegan Frozen Burritos Review

On a whim, I decided to try these organic vegetable burritos from Trader Joe’s to see how they taste since they’re vegan. The enchilada sauce I picked up, (it was right next to the burritos) also vegan.

I tried one of the burritos for the first time yesterday and baby, it was extra good. It surprised me actually how good it was. I would honestly definitely suggest everyone try it if it’s in your local Trader Joe’s.

Frozen burritos

It’s a mild sauce that goes with the burritos.

Yes, the sauce is also vegan! 😀

Just a fair warning, the burrito with the sauce is a bit spicy. But not unbearably spicy. It was just right!

Power Green Salad Meal

Green power

Yummy green power right here!

It’s been a little minute since I’ve been able to get on this here blog and I’m so happy to be back able to write to you all. A hater keeps shutting down my site so I apologize for the absenteeism.


A few days ago, I had the most wonderfullest meal everrrr. It was a salad mix called Power Greens and I added Dandelion greens to it as well. The salad mix should be called green power the way it’s so healthy and beneficial to the body. Also, I tried General Tso’s Mock Chicken for the first time at the deli in Whole Foods and let me tell you, both the power green salad w/ dandelion greens (From Trader Joe’s) and the General Tso’s Mock Chicken (From Whole Foods Deli) were both just scrumptious. No lies here, it was so so oh so so good. I also blended up a homemade dressing to go on the salad which was also delicious and refreshing. Thank me later.


Ingredients for Power Green Salad w/ Dandelion Greens

Makes 4 Servings

1/2 Cucumber

1 Avocado

1/4 Green Onion

Half bag of Power Greens (From Trader Joe’s, it has kale, spinach, and other healthy greens)

Fresh Dandelion Greens


Ingredients for Dressing

1/2 Cup Olive Oil

1/8 Cup of Spring Water (Or whichever water you prefer)

1/4 Cup of Fresh Lime Juice (I used 2 key limes)

1 tbsp of Agave (Or maple syrup)

1/4 tsp Sweet Basil

1/4 tsp Thyme

1/4 tsp Oregano

1/4 tsp Cumin



Chop everything up real fine and add it all together in a large bowl. For the homemade salad dressing, put all the ingredients in a mason jar (or whatever you have to mix stuff up real good) and shake that baby up!


Ingredients for General Tso’s Mock Chicken

I’m actually not sure of the ingredients of this, I just picked it up at the hot food section of Whole Foods Market. They were 10.99 for a decent amount. Well worth it. It tastes just like chicken!


I promise this meal will have you eating salads for days. Dandelion greens are one of the best greens you can eat. It’s old fashioned and we should know by now that anything old fashioned is probably good for you. Reason why there was not so much random disease back in the day. We have to get back to our roots and start eating from ground up again (eat a fresh grown plant based diet).


Thanks for reading! As always, peace/love.

Alkaline Vegetables

Alkaline Vegetables

The idea of alkaline vegetables is the same as alkaline fruits. Alkaline vegetables have the perfect neutral ph that your body needs to thrive. If you continue to eat acidic vegetables then you are making yourself susceptible to illness and disease. Follow this guide (from Dr. Sebi) of alkaline vegetables and make these your options.

  • Amaranth greens – same as Callaloo, a variety of Spinach
  • Avocado
  • Bell Peppers
  • Chayote (Mexican Squash)
  • Cucumber
  • Dandelion greens
  • Garbanzo beans (chick peas)
  • Green Banana – (added)
  • Izote – cactus flower/ cactus leaf- grows naturally in California
  • Kale
  • Lettuce (all, except Iceberg)
  • Mushrooms (all, except Shitake)
  • Nopales – Mexican Cactus
  • Olives (and olive oil)
  • Onions
  • Purslane (Verdolaga) – (added)
  • Poke salad -greens
  • Sea Vegetables (wakame/dulse/arame/hijiki/nori)
  • Squash
  • Tomato – cherry and plum only
  • Tomatillo
  • Turnip greens
  • Watercress – (added)
  • Zucchini

Remember this is the same diet that Dr. Sebi used to cure cancer and other chronic illnesses. The overall goal is to reduce mucus buildup in the body so that we don’t fall ill. Following the alkaline fruit and alkaline vegetables guides will leave you safe. Dr. Sebi covered all the foods (grains, nuts, etc) and I will be posting them soon. Always, peace and love!

Beyonce Formation Tour Review

Beyonce Formation Tour Review

Beyonce Formation Tour Review

EPIC EPIC EPIC. Did I say, EPIC?!!!! Her performance was just…everything. Here is my Beyonce Formation Tour review.


So, the first thing we did when we got to the arena, which was the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis MO, we bought our Beyonce merchandise. I got a tour t shirt which I’m saving to bust out on the perfect day. The t shirt cost 45 bucks. Everything was pricey but hey, that’s expected. The merchandise was really cute though! They had a lot of her sayings on shirts, or lines from songs. A lot of concert goers came with merchandise already to go. I guess people made their own and bought from different stores before the epic concert.


Front of shirt


Back of shirt


After we bought our merchandise we went in search of our seats. There was several people just waiting outside but we decided to hurry up and find our seats so we wouldn’t miss anything.


The show started like an hour late, let me say (although Beyonce’s performance was totally worth the wait and anticipation!!!). Her opening performer was rapper, Vic Mensa, Chicago native. He is a conscious rapper and I enjoyed his words very much so. I thought he did a great job.


Then there’s Beyonce. Oh, we waited and we waited for Beyonce. When she finally came out it was like an epiphany or something. I totally fan girl’d the night away. I was screaming my head off. She performed several songs, old and new. She is a performer, the performer, the Michael Jackson of our decade (don’t argue with me, she’s amazing). I’ve always loved Beyonce but it took me going to see her in concert to really appreciate her. I’ve also been to a Jay Z concert and that was my favorite concert…until I saw Beyonce of course. Best concert I’ve ever attended, hands down. Better than Drake, Jay Z, and every other performer I’ve seen.


OH! & here’s the outfit I wore! All black everything 😀

Alkaline Fruit

Alkaline fruit

You may not know much about the concept of, “Alkaline fruit” but I assure you that by the end of this post you’ll know more about it. The food you eat determines whether your body is acidic (bad) or alkaline (good).

Alkaline is defined as:

Having the properties of an alkali, or containing alkali; having a pH greater than 7.

Your body should not be filled with acidic foods, but it should be filled with alkaline fruits, vegetables, and other foods. Acidic foods are what bring our bodies to an acidic level which is harmful for your immune system among other complications. Here in this post I’m going to talk about the difference between alkaline and acidic foods and give some examples as well. This particular blog post will be about alkaline fruit.


So, here are some examples of alkaline fruit!

  • Avocados
  • Bananas (ripe)(the small kind)
  • Berries (all varieties)
  • Mango
  • Apples
  • Apricots
  • Grapes
  • Passion fruit
  • Pears
  • Pineapple
  • Dates
  • Figs
  • Grapes (seeded)
  • Limes (key limes preferred with seeds)
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cherries
  • Currants
  • Mango
  • Melons -seeded
  • Orange (Seville or sour preferred, difficult to find )
  • Papayas

A papaya!

  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Plums
  • Prickly Pear (Cactus Fruit) – (added)
  • Prunes
  • Raisins -seeded
  • Soft Jelly Coconuts (and coconut oil)
  • Soursops – (Latin or West Indian markets)
  • Sugar apples (chermoya) – (removed)
  • Tamarind – (added)



I got these alkaline fruit options from the late Dr. Sebi, who’s knowledge will be passed on and remembered for decades. It’s been said that by following his nutritional lists of food, he’s cured cancer and HIV. Stick to these rules and you will hardly ever get ill. By the way, any other fruit not listed on this list is acidic and you should either cut it totally out of your diet (best results) or you could just eat acidic fruit sparingly. Also, after eating acidic food you should wipe your mouth because if you don’t, the acidity is just sitting there on your mouth, which is not good.

Roasted Vegetables Recipe

Roasted Vegetables

Roasted Vegetables Recipe

Today, I have a yummy roasted vegetables recipe to share with you all. This stuff was so delicious, let me tell you! It’s the perfect balance and the fake bacon gave the plate some more dimension (although it’d be just as good without the fake bacon).

This was my first time trying the “bacon” and it was so delicious with the vegetables once they’re all roasted together. Ready? Let’s go!



  • Spinach, chopped
  • Onion, chopped
  • Mushrooms, chopped
  • Fake bacon (Sweet Earth’s Benevolent Bacon), chopped into bite size pieces
  • Green Pepper, chopped
  • Yellow Pepper, chopped
  • Squash, chopped


Sauce Recipe

  • Balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp
  • Minced garlic, 1 clove
  • 1/4 of olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Dijon mustard, 1 tbsp



  • Chop up all the veggies and place into a large bowl (except for the spinach, it cooks separately)
  • Toss the sauce (for the sauce recipe, just get a separate bowel, and mix the ingredients together, stir it up!) onto the vegetables and “bacon”
  • Put the veggies/”bacon” in a baking pan and cook for about 40 minutes or until tender


  • For the spinach, cook in pot on low until it looks done (only a few minutes) and set it aside until the veggies/”bacon” is done.


  • After the veggies and “bacon” is done roasting in the oven, place veggies in pot with spinach
  • Mix it all together



  • (You may want to drain the spinach first before mixing it all together so you don’t have all the extra water that comes from cooking the spinach)


And that is all for this yummy recipe! Thanks for reading, and as always…PEACE&LOVE



Consumed Movie Review

Consumed movie

Consumed Movie Review

So, today I stumbled upon a great movie called “Consumed.” What caught my attention was that in the info part it said it was about genetically modified organisms. I found this movie on Netflix in the new release section.

At first I was surprised I hadn’t heard or seen the movie since it debuted in 2015, but then I remembered how powerful GMO companies like Monsanto are, they probably made the movie invisible on purpose.

Here is my review of the movie. It got 4 out of 5 stars on Netflix by the way.


The Plot

The movie is about a mother (Zoe Lister Jones) who is searching for the source of her son’s illness. She discovers that the source of his illness is the food they eat, and the fact that it’s all GMO. So she begins a journey to meet the leader of the GMO movement (They call the GMO company “clonestra” but we all know it’s actually Monsanto). The solution to the dilemma of the movie is for the GMO company to have labeling so that people can choose if they don’t mind eating GMO food all the time. I won’t spoil the end, but it’s a pretty great watch. Especially, if you don’t know much about the GMO situation.

Like I said, it’s a pretty great watch and I definitely would recommend it to everyone.

  1. Let the habenero peppers season up the food with a little extra kick by sticking them in the stew and letting it slow cook with the rest of the ingredients. Take the peppers out once everything is cooked thoroughly (Unless you want a super spicy stew, then just leave them in the pot).
Habanero Peppers

Habanero Peppers

  1. Don’t forget to season your food with sage, and salt and pepper.
