Playlist: Cycling (updated)

Here are some YouTube links for those who dare to listen to new more complex rock/metal. Some of these are heavy and involve intense lyrics. Most are instrumental that are easy to listen to. They put me into a proper zone while riding a bike on rides when I have earbuds in.

There are most likely numerous things I do miss about a carnivorous and non-Vegan lifestyle, but, for some reason, I miss that sickening full feeling the most. And the subconscious connection between comfort-food and that sickly full atmospheric pressure is in the back of my brain as I’m still attaining to retain that damn sensation.

Einstein_Bicycle-600x400

The conclusion was creating  an awesome ongoing process of constructing Ⓥegan food that is extremely good for you that will never provide a sick-full ambience, like chasing a water-like mirage for 100 kms in a sand-boiling-into-glass desert. After months and months of scientifically creating food ideas like Einstein with an apron on and like Einstein riding a bicycle, there IS NOT a way to be engulfed by that death euphoria without torturing, murdering and consuming animal flesh or animal dairy products.

I will never in my life eat animal flesh ever again. So, it is settled. I do still enjoy creating and consuming Ⓥ “comfort-food”, but I will never experience that deathly ill susceptibility. I will only have an energetic, healthy and LIFEFUL consciousness and how is that a bad thing.

Albert-Einstein-Nothing-will-benefit-human

One fact that bothers me is Albert Einstein, the brilliant scientist, believed in vegetarianism his whole life, yet only practiced a vegetarian lifestyle at the conclusion of his life. For someone so smart, why did it take him so long..? I’d truly enjoy asking him that question.

I’ve recently noticed a trend of mothers posting cute pictures of their children and calling them “hams” on various social media platforms. I am biased being Vegan and haven’t stuck a fork in ham for well over three years, but I find it disturbing. All that I can think of is the torture and murder involved in preparing that “cute” dead animal flesh for the holiday. Why is that becoming a fad? I hope for the sake of quality of life that I am not the only one that has noticed and been bothered by this. Maybe I am overthinking this, but felt an urge to shed some light on this. If anyone can explain the reasoning behind this, I’d greatly appreciate it. I can only think of ignorance.

I am also gonna, from now on, keep track of prices most of the prices in relation to their serving sizes. LBV is still not finished, also. (Low Budget Vegan)

thumb_IMG_3045_1024

BREAKⓋAST ingredients:

  • Tofu, extra firm (6) @ $2.98 = $0.50 per serving
  • Eggplant, chopped (8) @ $1.78 = $0.23 per serving
  • Spinach, sliced (3.5) @ $2.98 = $0.86 per serving
  • Shallot, sliced (6) @$0.72 = $0.12 per serving
  • Portabellini, sliced (3.5) @ $3.99 = $1.14 per serving
  • SEASONING: SeaSalt/Pepper/FennelSeed/ DillWeed/Oil = $0.07
  • Lightlife ‘sausage’, crumbled (7) @ $4.99 = $0.72 per serving
  • Lightlife ‘beef’, crumbled (7) @ $4.99 = $0.72 per serving
  • Rye Bread, grilled (16) @ $2.89 = $0.19 per serving
  • Earth Balance (30) @ $4.99 = $0.17 per serving
  • Tortilla, warm – for burrito (8) @ $1.25 = $0.16 per serving
  • Potato, diced (20) @ $2.99 = $0.15 per serving
  • Garlic, minced (27) @ $2.99 = $0.12 per serving

This is definitely not the cheapest meal, at $4.43 per serving, it is well worth it for health and general life benefits. And depending on quality of vegetables, it can cost more. The spinach and Mushrooms are ridiculously expensive for the servings. Not 100% sure those were the serving sizes, but still way more than I normally want to spend.

I do not feel like going into much detail on how I made this. It’s pretty simple. I think I broke my toe last night and I’m going to attempt to ride tonight! I, also, am going to buy a Fat Bike tonight!!!
