Hey there folks!

Well I usually post a list of fantastical things from the web on Mondays but yesterday was a TOTAL bust. Let’s just say that I had somewhat of a meltdown revolving around the fact that we have no money right now (and I am about to start medical school…) It was a bad time, ending in a bingefest at our local favorite veg*n diner. What sounded like a great idea (milkshakes! veggie burgers and crispy fries!) just ended up making me feel worse 😦

Since we are all human and make mistakes, I recorded a video about nutritional mishaps and how to deal with the aftermath. My internet is too slow right now for me to post it but hopefully I can get it up and running tomorrow…

In the meantime, enjoy some of the fun things I have found in the virtual world:

Need some inspiration to take your practice to the next level? Check out these extreme yoga poses!

Living Holistically wrote an article about the dangers of diet soda (and this time, it includes weight gain…eep).

These charred corn tacos from Smitten Kitchen look perfect for summer (and could easily be veganized by substituting avocado for the cheese). And if you aren’t a fan of charring the corn yourself, Trader Joe’s has some frozen charred corn kernels on sale right now!

Gabby B (of Spirit Junkie fame) has some great videos, including this one about how to accept+release emotions.

And for my naughtier readers, these chocolate espresso cupcakes from vegansaurus look pretty amazing.

And that’s what I got for ya this week. Have a great one!

  1. i haven’t been able to comment as diligently since i’ve been in cleveland with my family, but i’ve been reading and enjoying all your posts, as usual! i’m excited about the new switch/format…i think about trying to do two blogs-one health related, one more critical/political stuff, but i barely have time to do one, so i dunno.

    sorry about the meltdown. : ( i’ve totally been there, and it’s scary, but i hope you feel confident that it will all be worth it (i think it will be!). plus, being broke gives us more motivation to hate capitalism on a deeply personal, affective level, which i think makes us better revolutionaries. amirite? ; )

    love the picture of frida! who is she with? one of her lovers, or is that the woman from the film who gives that great speech about marriage?

    hang in there beautiful friend!

    • aww thank you SO much for this, i really needed a boost. yeah, all this sadness from being (and staying perpetually) poor really does put the fire under my revolutionary behind 🙂

      as for the picture, i think that is the italian communist photographer tina modotti with her (one of her many beautiful+radical lovers!) i LOVE finding old pictures of frida, they always make me really happy.

      hope you are having a great time with your family!
