Simple Ones: Healthy Oatmeal Granola Cookies

I like to take recipes and tailor them with healthy things to create tasty treats. Granola bars are way to expensive in the store and are wrapped in more packaging than Christmas. Substituting healthier, better quality ingredients can make a world of difference. It does take a bit of trial and error. I, personally, like to avoid bleached or refined products. If I wanted the rubbish, I'd pour myself a glass of bleach to go with some bleached white bread and white sugar.
These cookies have fiber, ancient grains, and are low glycemic (because of the agave nectar). One or two of these around that 2:30 pm low point really brighten up my day and give my energy. Who needs 5 hour energy anyways. pisshaw. Enjoy!


  • 3/4 cup butter or olive oil, softened
  • 3/4 cup agave nectar or raw honey
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups 50/50 White Wheat Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2  cups steel cut oats
  • 1/3 cup coconut shreds
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 2/3 cup spelt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In large bowl, mix together butter, agave nectar/honey, and brown sugar until uniformly mixed. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until fluffy. Stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ground flax seed, spelt, coconut shreds and salt. Stir in oats. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. Place cookies onto sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

 I recommend refrigeration them because the flax seed and they keep longer.

What All Humans Seek

So this summer on my days off I'd drive down to my grandmother's and we chill out. Amidst our conversations, it became quite clear to me what all people seek in this world, really whether they realize it or not.

All people just want to be loved and respected. Love and respect can be interpreted in many ways. We do things that we don't even realize but we want to be treated with respect and cared about by others.

My grandmother brought up the issue: well what about the homeless drunk on the sidewalk? and treating him differently than others. I stressed the point that we are all human and deserve the basic decency of respect. We can't judge people fairly or correctly. Our mind uses stereotypes to quickly categorize people based on primitive characteristics. It would take hours to figure out someone. Despite the fact many people seem to fall directly into stereotypes just means they exhibit more characteristics of group of people.

Think about it, prostitutes don't necessarily whore themselves out because of enjoyment. In a strange convoluted way, by earning the money they can afford the necessities of life to feel respectable. Humans go all their life looking to be loved. Family, friends, lovers, compliments from a passing stranger, teams, there are endless possibilities.

I guess what I'm itching to say is: don't judge, you don't know people's past and what makes them who they are. Respect others and give them the time of day. We all need to be loved. So the next time you walk by someone on the sidewalk give them a smile. Let someone over in front of you, you never know what these small acts might mean to someone's day. They may have been just on their way to end their life.....

Food is Power (excellent read)

Excerpt from The Vegan Reader

Food Is Power

The great humanitarian and farmer, John Jeavons, once said:

"Food is Power…Are You In Control Of Yours? "

As an American and an inheritor of the legacy of a system that has valued money over brotherly love, I know my people, poor people, innocent people, unthinking people, simple, decent people have been burned one too many times by corporations that have marketed ‘progress’ and ‘convenience’ to them.

In this country, many of us are beginning to realize that when we traded in our own skills for the convenient agreement of others doing our work in exchange for money, we won ourselves a world of pesticides, polluted skies and water, contaminated food and foreign sweatshop labor. We stopped living like the incredibly skilled American Indians, or even the early pioneers, nearly all of whom knew how to grow food, make fire, build shelter, find water, craft clothing and feed people. We have become a nation of unskilled workers who pay others to do everything we need for the very basics of being alive, and those we have given our money to have failed to resist the temptation to increase profit by casting care for human and environmental health aside.

Food is power, and by taking the control of it back into your hands as much as you possibly can, you are strengthening yourself as a human person. I realize, few of us are going to be able to create a rice paddy in our backyard, but we can get as deep down on the chain of events as possible. We can purchase rice that is grown without chemicals and is processed as little as possible. We can cook our own rice, and we can make our own milk from it to feed our dear ones well.

You can retrieve your power, your authority over your own life in the steps and stages that feel comfortable and reasonable to you. Today you have learned how to make rice milk – and if you try it, I think you’ll decide it’s absolutely delicious. More than this, though, I think you may feel that you’ve really accomplished something good. Maybe for you, this is a bold act of defiance against the corruption of the Organics industry with big, moneyed, dirty corporate players. Maybe it’s the thougthful act of the gourmet cook who insists on having fresh foods instead of processed ones that have been sitting on a supermarket shelf for who knows how long. Or, maybe it’s just a new way to take better care of yourself by taking the time you deserve to prepare wholesome foods. All reasons are good reasons if they help you to act with diginity and discernment in your daily life.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this reskilling lesson. Let us know if you give making your own rice milk a try.

Dreadlock wearers brush off stereotypes


Crystal Bowersox rocks, it's plain to see. The folksy guitar-slinger from rural Ohio has dominated this lackluster season of "American Idol" with her vocal prowess and easygoing stage presence.
So why, then, are so many people hung up on her hair?
Via blogs and message boards, fans have issued proclamations on the long, blonde, ropelike dreadlocks that Bowersox, 24, sports. Some love them, but some deride them with a passion.
Venomous adjectives such as "dirty, filthy and trashy" have been used to describe them.
All this vitriol underscores the many stigmas and stereotypes attached to a hairstyle that dates back to ancient Egypt and, more recently, is often associated with reggae artist Bob Marley.
But even though such mainstream celebrities as Whoopi Goldberg, singers Lenny Kravitz and Adam Duritz, baseball star Manny Ramirez and author Alice Walker, have sprouted dreadlocks through the years, it's a hairstyle that remains highly misunderstood.
Loretta Green-Williams, 56, and Jordan Aiken, 23, have their own tales of dreadlocks woe. Green-Williams, a Pittsburg, Calif., resident, notices how people "talk down" to her and question her intellect -- never mind that she holds a master's degree from University of San Francisco. Aiken, a recent graduate of UC Berkeley, recalls how sororities and certain clubs shunned her.
Like others who favor dreadlocks, Aiken has seen them arouse curiosity in friends and strangers. A lot of people want to touch them. She has also dealt with what might be the biggest misconception about dreadlocks: that they're the unclean, unkempt byproduct of neglect.
"They're not dirty. I wash my hair. I really do," she says, laughing. "No one ever says they smell bad or anything."
Indeed, Michelle Robinson, who specializes in locking (or knitting) hair in her Oakland, Calif., salon, Naturally Yours Hair Care, insists that the hairstyle actually can be very high maintenance, with some dreadheads spending several hours a week on grooming and upkeep.
"There's a lot of ignorance out there. What we're basically talking about is just a larger strand of hair," says Robinson.
One issue concerning the hairstyle is tinged with tension: Who should wear them? For Rastafarians, dreadlocks are a symbol of inner spirituality. For many blacks, dreadlocks represent a vivid rejection of assimilation and an expression of racial pride. That's why some regard Caucasians with locks as "culture vultures."
For the record, Bowersox, who has had her locks for four-plus years, has said in various interviews that she has no intention of snipping them off just to please the "Idol" voters.
That sentiment draws a hearty cheer from Aiken, who has sported her blonde locks for a similar amount of time.
"It's a singing competition. They should probably focus on her voice," she says. "If she loves her locks, I think she should just rock them and ignore what the people are saying.
"They're probably just jealous anyway."

My Name is Magola, You Killed My Forest-Prepare to Die!

I'm so tired of dinky zip lock bags. Sure they're great. But taking a lunch includes about 5 or so them each day. bleh! When I worked at the tree place, this girl made a "wrap-n-mat-esque" sandwich holder. It was pretty neat. She could throw it in the washer or dishwasher to clean it. Let's think about it though: sandwich needs a bag, pickles need a bag, carrot stick needs a bag, peeled orange needs a bag, crackers come pre-wrapped and so does luna bar. Pretty soon I'll be arriving in bubble wrap to complete the plastic disaster. So today in honor of ARBOR DAY please reconsider your plastic usage!! Those jelly sandles you're wearing- yeah those too are not so hot for the environment. If you've got any knowledge on how to sew a stitch here's how to make a simple sandwich holder.


If you don't- you can buy a few and use them instead of plastic bags!

Has them for fairly cheap!

Top that off with a reusable canvas carry-all bag and you're packing heat lunch!!

Bodies are Art

I, personally, feel that the human body is a beautiful art form. It is complete with curves and colors, textures and shadows. I was 16 yrs old when I saw a truly lovely nude painting. I had been to museums and such as a kid but none of those nude sculptures or art seemed to really pique my interest.

The picture was set against a light forest green that complimented the fair alabaster skin-tone of the subject. She wasn't thin or fat- rather plump. Her brownish-red locks were pulled back into a messy bun. I asked my friend about the painting and she carelessly wrote it off as, "oh that's my grandmother". From then on, I've always thought how poignent it would be to have a nice leather bound photo album of classy nudes of myself. I would want the prints to have some black and white ones, sepia ones and color ones. Lighting would be a key element.

Its not because I'm creepy or have a strange nudity fetish but I view the human body as beautiful. Too much taboo has been put on the body. Many people are ashamed of their beauty and are not allowed to expose it. Its not right.

I may pursue this hope of mine someday. I think it would be something nice to look back on when I am older.

Blades of Grass

So it seems that the pollen has been attacking everyone pretty badly. Luckily, I'm not allergic, but my nose is working overtime to rid it of pollen. This weekend should be nice and sunny. I'm excited about that. I had really wanted to go hiking or something but I can't seem to get anyone together. Maybe I can convince my lover to go along.

Still need to clean the effing gum out of the dryer. grrrRAR....very angry.

Plan on doing a little bit of cleaning up around the house. Somehow it falls to shambles during the week. Probably play some old skool video games, do a little food shopping, mingle with society, you know-the uze.

I still need to buy an under tank heater for the crabitat. I think they like it alot. I certainly do!

Not too much to say. I'll prolly take a power nap when I get home. Staying up late zaps me. Zzzz

Dreads From August to Current

Some Endings, Some Beginnings

Well today is my last day at Icing. I'm alright with that. Now I'll have my weekends open again where I can do laundry, clean up, hike or kayak. I wasn't getting enough hours (4hrs/week) and I figured earning $1500 a year at one job is pretty unreasonable. Maybe I'll sell some of my handmade earrings online....

I don't know if I've already said this, but I sewed a really cool dress that I wore for easter. I bought the material from Walmart; 5 yards for 5 dollars! It is dark green with black designs. It have a side hidden zipper with a black satin ribbon at empire waist. The same black ribbon is used in the straps to make a cross-back. I love it. It is very flattering. And if Katie hadn't mentioned it looks like size 13, I probably wouldn't have taken it apart and re-evaluated it.

I did the river rescue last weekend with Canoe and Hiking Club. This is our annual service project-and I love it! Picked up loads of trash along the river and filled our canoe with it. The trash barge-hahah! Then we all ate pizza and beer at Barley's afterwards. It was great fun. Really would love to get outdoors more.

The hermies love their new habitat and personally, I'd get in there too if I could. I'll post pictures later. It has a tidal pool, a hammock filled with shells, 2 food bowls, clean water bowl, climbing vines, coco-huts, a climbing wall and lots of sand. I'd be hanging out in the tidal pool all day if I were a crab. The crab violence has decreased luckily. I was getting pretty stressed out about it. Gotta hit the critter barn soon and get some new family members-anybody want to go with me?

Luv Me Some Crabs

So I've decided to turn my low key crabitat into a hobby and much larger establishment. I found on craigslist a fifty gallon tank and a ten gallon with a bunch of reptile gear. In total it only cost $50! This was well over $500 of things! I am very excited. The other day my lover bought me a cute little hermit. He named him Colonel Forbin. If you know what that is in reference to- good for you. If not, never mind, you probably will never know. The other crabs had a feely fest with him. They use their little feelers to communicate. The other hermies are coming up on a year of ownership. They can live up to 40 years of age. They are definitely not throw away pets! Their tank is just getting too loaded with things: choya wood, bridge, two pools (salt and pure), 2 coconut halves, 2 large rocks, glo plants and food dishes! Eiy! I've read that when you have more than 6 crabs they create a colony personality. I'm very curious as to how that works.

One dummy crab sat around all day without a shell. I was panicking about this all day. I isolated him for safety. He had molted and probably wanted a bigger shell. Luckily larger shells are coming in the mail. I did coax him into getting in his old shell using the "glass cup method". I was really freaked out that he was going to die.

But needless to say I'm very excited. I'm also very impressed with the set-ups I've seen online. People's crabitats are amazing. I'd like to provide these little crabblets with the best set-up possible. I'm planning on getting a small paint roller tray and make it into a tidal pool. It'll be great.

Oh and by the way: I figured out a way to get that tiny silver nose hoop in last night. I had one nose ring sticking down from the top and was able to guide the hoop in based on the top one. I've had so many problems trying to get this hoop in. I've tried, no joke, 4 times. The last time it swelled so much I couldn't get anything through. But I really like this one and its surgical steel. It seems my nose doesn't like titanium.


06 April 2010


Now that it has been 88 degrees give or take outside the crabitat's temperature is increasing as well. During the winter it was around 65 in the crabitat. Now it is party time for the crabs. I've let them climb the hill behind our house while I keep a stern eye on them. I keep imagining some large bird is going to swoop down and chomp one of them. I emptied their sand and put new wet sand in there, some large rocks and moved things around. Little do they know they're getting a new sibling soon! I asked my lover for a tiny little hermit crab to add to colony. I set up a nice iso tank for it with coconut fiber and nice sand and a little pool. I can't wait!

I ordered them a bridge to cruise over, choya wood, coconut fiber climbing wall, and more shells. One crab refused to resurface. He's been down there for a long time. If he's molting he a crazy one, doing it twice in a matter of months. I found a nice pin oak leaf today and tossed it in their tank. I hope they'll enjoy munching on it.

Early Rays of Dawn

It is still dark. But the varigated calls of the birds is a choral production. Their songs break the silence of the night ending. Blue-grey rays of light far off on the horizon creep. The air is still cool. The twinkle of the dew drops hang off blades of grass. An unsuspecting grasshopper springs only to become a robin's breakfast. Pink, orange and yellow artfully line the skyline. The sun peeps its sleepy head over the hilltops. A slight breeze tickles the budding leaves and blooms. The air is rich with chlorophyll. Soft, golden beams of sunlight travel through my window onto my sleeping face. Comforting warmth. I open my sleepy eyes....

31 March 2010

Into the Night

The cool night air weaves through my blinds in the dark. The distant sound of the spring peepers, calling to one another, is heard. Calling for a lover. The full white moon slowly slides across the sky. The thin sheer curtains flutter in the breeze. This breeze carries a message. It is filled with flowers, birth and the warmth ahead. I lay nestled in my nest of cotton sheets and a duvet. I hear spring, only a quiet whisper now. A mother bird lets out an alarmed chirp. The sound of silent wings passes in the night. Perhaps she is looking for a worm? I know where the worms hide, underneath my flower pots. Downstairs, I know my four little hermit crabs are dancing. Dancing in the warm humidity of their habitat. They know spring is coming. In the dark they whisper of the change of tides and flowing sands. It is only a matter of time until the orchestra of spring begins....

Bouncing Along the Bumpy Trail

So I've been doing a little maintenance on my dreadlocks and wow! A little bit of sewing can make a huge difference. I have a jumbo needle I used to use for plastic canvas. The eye is large enough to fit quite a few hairs through it. I thread it with the loose hair and sew it into the proper dread. Amazing. I finished it off with some diluted lemon and salt water juice. I blunted some of the ends too. I only have 4 wispy ends. Now if those loops would just go away....

Yeah my dinner last night consisted of curly fries. Totally not healthy at all. But what would I have eatten with them? pasta? rice? masted potatoes? So that was that.

Mr. B went to bed very early last night. I got up very grumpy and dried out this morning. I never sleep with air blown heat on. It does a real number on me- dries out me lips, sore throat, dry nose, toss and turn all night. Ever since I was a kid I just closed the vent at night. That is why I was grumpy.

Looks like tomorrow I'll be feasting with my friend at the Brewery downtown. YAY! We were trying to go ziplining but it doesn't fit in with our schedules. Maybe later....

Last night I sewed this awesome/hilarious looking sleeping hat. Its made of blue satin and could easily be mistaken for a chef or baker's hat. I made it because I was so tired of lint in my hair. This way the satin is light, lintless, and smooth. My loopy locks can slide all over each other! I also sewed a pretty scrunchy for my hair too.

Mr. b told me he'd make dinner. I wonder what is in store. We desperately need to go food shopping. Literally have no fruits or vegetables.

Well that is all.

26 March 2010

What are we reduced to eating dinner out of ?

Right In Your Loopy Face

So here I sit sniveling about how my dreads are no where near as pretty as the ones from compunction.org or G_U_D_U. They are in such desperate need of some maintenace. I've read both sides of the coin, maintain or don't touch them. But the not touching them is just making them icky. Loose hairs everywhere, loops out the asshole, etc. No they're not gross, I wash them every week sometimes more. But aesthetically they are seriously lacking. I really don't know how to maintain them. I've tried dreadballing, palm rubbing, clockwise root rubbing, some crochet hook and they still look like ca-ca. Ok, given that maintainance I mentioned was months ago. But I'm all in this on my own. I have no dreadie homies, my fiance is dread-inexperienced and no one around town to help. wahh!!! (pulls self together) I'm getting married soon and I don't want to look like a freak. I want them to look lovely and surprising. This weekend I am going to try my hand again and fixing them up. Its just the back is so difficult to see and do. I'm seriously considering consulting and flying Lish out here to help me fight this loose loopy battle.

On a brighter note: I'd like to share the joy of an old lady. Yesterday at the mall (where I work P/T) an old lady and her elderly daughter rolled up. No seriously, the mother was in a wheelchair. She kindly asked me how did I get my hair like that. I explained in basic terms how to created dreads. She clapped her hands and laughed when I told her I don't brush my hair anymore. Her daughter and she asked do I wash or how do I wash it? I explained basically its the scalp that gets all the soil so that's what I focus on. They were both amazed and looked thrilled. hahah! I was pretty happy after that. I'm so used to rude stares. This was a pleasant change.

23 March 2010

A Random Day

Our compost is slowly, and I mean slowly, breaking down. I can't wait to use it on the new vegetable we're going to plant. Still need to start up some tomato seeds...hmmm... I wonder if those squash I threw into the forest will ever break down. They were almost like cement bricks.

I ate this vegetarian thing yesterday. I don't think I could go vegetarian. I love fruits and vegetable but...something about the lack of chicken, fish or hamburgers. I couldn't handle it. So I'll continue to live my borderline vegetarian life.

A few days ago I entered the phish ticket request. It was so confusing, but anyways, I requested two tickets in June. Hopefully I'll get them. Poor mr. b lost his beloved Phish shirt from the Fall tour. We'll just have to get him another!

So the spring semester starts to come to an end. Its almost been a year since I've graduated. Its really weird and kind of sad. I miss so much about college. I still despise the tests, papers and school work and certain teachers. But now I must focus on other things like work, laundry and juicy tv and mr. b of course! I've basically morphed into an old person. Early to bed, low alcohol tolerance, no time. bleh. despise. I suppose life has its ups and downs. I barely go on Facebook anymore.

I guess I'm just a little out of sorts. I've been kind of off for a little bit. I'm sure things will pick up and the sun will finally come out. No seriously, the clouds have been pretty annoying. I miss seeing the sun.

22 March 2010

How Do I love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways...

I love you in the morning when you open your sleepy little turtle eyes
I love you in daytime when you chirp at me downstairs and I chirp back
I love your ridiculous songs in the morning, right when you wake up
I love your furry hair
I love when I sneeze you say bless you beautiful
I love how you cook me dinner more often than not
I love your unselfish nature
I love your smile and laughter
I love the music you create
I love how we share things together
I love how you care about me
I love how you're willing to try new things
I love your smell
I love your sexiness
Most of all I love how you love me

Another Day in the Life

This weekend capt. b and I looked at some sitars online. I was pretty excited. So it looks like he's going to buy one sometime. We had some friends over on Saturday night. Cooked out (made my first burger! haha), smoked hookah, played old video game and had a good time. Unfortunately, I feel asleep during the old skool video games. Cut me some slack, it was midnight.

Went food shopping. Buying things in bulk is nice because it means I can be lazy and not go shopping quite as much.

...and now for my list of observations...
smoothies: most flexible beverage ever! love it and make it for breakfast everyday

bad girls club: excellent. the drama is just over the top

gardein thai trio: surprisingly good. expected much worse.

the weather: one day its 70 degrees the next its snowing. is anyone else confused?

earthfare: mmmm....I think of you often. need to pick up mr. b's easter gifts from there

sushi: oh gosh i'm in love with you. convinced i have an addiction

eating healthy: doing pretty good. sometimes I fall flat. trying my best though.

college: glad i'm done with that. kind of my all my friends and the good old days

wedding: coming up soon. can't wait-very excited to be wife!

nose piercing: love it! best $28 spent. coming up on 2 months of having it

dreadlocks: you're coming along well. inspiring others to dread theirs :)

....more to follow soon....
