Thinking Outside Your Head

By far the best way to get exactly what you want and exactly what you think you get is cooking and preparing food from as scratch as possible. It is the healthiest way to go about life. Unfortunately, it is hard to sometimes fit into routines and it definitely is time consuming. Ever since throwing myself (arms wide open) into the consumption of the Vegan lifestyle, I’ve been constantly reminded of the time and hurdles that take place in this lifelong journey. Not that Vegetarian is any easier. It truly is, being able to eat cheese and dairy. There is not much of a challenge, nor is it truly bettering yourself or the world. Vegetarianism is the start to hopefully enlightened by the sense of what truly matters in this world.


Nothing will benefit life more than what you put into your body. Animal products kill people and murder innocent lives, genocide-style, to feed greed. Nothing is destroying our planet more than the gluttony behind animal consumption, meat and dairy. Good for you for being Vegetarian. I hope all Vegetarians succeed over that hump and obtain that sense of what is going on. I came across this speech with a little help from The Vegan Zombie.

Furthermore, in certain areas it is extremely difficult to live the Vegan lifestyle at a faster pace than cooking all day. I’m sometimes a lazy son of a bitch and when you don’t have motivation to prepare awesome food to refuel, you have to dig deep sometimes, you have to brainstorm, you have to think outside of your head. You can’t always trust what mom & pop restaurants put in their food, but with my experience in mom & pop Italian pizza, I just know that Italian Pizza is made from scratch as cheaply as possible. I’m talking about the dough. I’d put my life on it that all Italian pizza dough consists of flour, salt, yeast, sugar, oil and water.


I have, since being a child, been fighting an addiction. This addiction is impossible to overcome. It is a pizza addiction. Vegan pizza is delicious, but involves preparing. I have been ordering (delivery) Vegan pizza from a ma & pa Italian Restaurant. It is a Veggie pizza without cheese. They’ve never messed up and it is awesome to have that option in my Vegan fuel arsenal. I’ve been dreaming of a Subway option that might actually fill me up. Their Veggie sub, Vegan-style, is delicious, but I need three or four to fill me up. I partook my first Subway adventure yesterday.

Before I forget, I wanna bitch about Netflix. Netflix is occasionally good, but usually bad. The selection sucks and it is dumb with its algorithms to recommend things “smartly” to watch. My favorite movie, Field of Dreams, has never been on Netflix. I recently found an awesome movie away from Netflix completely in American Flyers, also starring Kevin Costner. I have created a joke to myself and cycling about ‘going the distance’.

It took some digging, but I did find the newest awesome cycling documentary today on Netflix. And followed by another just super interesting documentary.

I love cycling, but I do love adventure more. Adventure gives someone unparalleled challenges. Easy things are boring. Boring is easy. Cycling adventures are my favorite.


I hiked down to a Subway and hiked back with my sandwich. It was a footlong on toasted whole wheat bread. This sandwich consisted of just Veggies. It had lettuce, onion, tomato, olives, spinach, jalapeño, cucumber and Love.
