Vipassana Experience

I was searching again for any new experiences and I came across this PDF on the internet.  I really appreciate how detailed the writer was in describing her experience and how it really is like on a Vipassana meditation course. Here is the link.

Will turning Vegetarian save the planet?

Living in this society under its rules and still doing what I feel is good for me is something I learned early on.  My choices open themselves up to me like doors and I walked through.  This is how I truly made the switch to being a vegetarian three years ago and I feel better and happier now than I ever knew was possible, but here it is my life, happy, no drugs, no pills..all energy and sometimes a little bit of sugar.

Here is an article to explain why becoming a vegetarian (by the way  I am a non soy (or rarely soy) eating vegetarian)
makes this world a better place.  Will turning vegetarian save the planet?

One year ago today..

One year ago today, my bestfriend and I got married. Whatever it is we go through from grocery shopping to more serious stuff, the laughter is there around every corner. I learned that from my father, laughter is a key to bringing happiness now in this moment. I appreciated this. Today I am smiling knowing that I have prosperity and abundance and happiness in my life. Here is a sneak peek at my future projects.

Oh the FOOD....heaven is on a plate

My husband and I went to Mi Vida Cafe for my birthday. Raw Vegan Cupcakes Raw-k! Vegetarian and Vegan food is at is best that I ever tasted at this place. The owner and chef surprised me with putting a lit candle in my cupcake to celebrate my birthday.

I tried seitan for the first time.  I googled seitan and found vegetarian.about.com.
Seitan Sloppy Joe
This is what it said "Although it is made from wheat, seitan has little in common with flour or bread. Also called “wheat meat”, “wheat gluten” or simply “gluten”, seitan becomes surprisingly similar to the look and texture of meat when cooked, making it a popular meat substitute. Seitan is also high in protein, making it a popular protein source for vegetarians. Asian restaurants often use seitan as a vegetarian mock meat, and seitan is also the base for several commercially available products such as Tofurky deli slices."


Seitan tasted pretty good.  I don't know what meat tastes like anymore, so I cannot describe the taste.  The spices and everything make it amazingly flavorful. Definitely something to look into if you are thinking about becoming a vegetarian. I tend to stay away from any soy based products.
