Sweet Potato, Pumpkin Seeds and Kale Salad

 It's savory, crunchy, green and it's good for you!  As is always my goal...............this bad boy is simple deliciousness!  You'll need 6 things: kale, lemon, avocado, red onions, sweet potato, spinach and pumpkin seeds.  Let's do this.

1 sweet potato
5-6 leaves of kale
1 big handful of spinach
1/4 of a red onion diced
1 lemon
1 avocado
1/4 of salt
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to sprinkle and taste
1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds

Wash greens and strip kale from the thick stalks.  I usually use these leftover stalks in a green juice/smoothie so that I don't waste anything.  You can tear kale into smaller pieces or chop it down.  That actually sounds kind of barbaric.  Let's try something like gingerly dice.  Peel sweet potatoes into about 1-inch cubes.  Coat with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Roast in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 mins.  Heat a skillet to medium and lightly toast pumpkin seeds until they slightly brown.

Blend avocado, juice from lemon, 1/4 tsp of salt and a bit of water to thin the dressing.  Blend until chunky or smooth.  Whichever you prefer...I like anything with texture, so I like it chunky.  

Dice red onions and add to the greens.  Once the sweet potatoes are fully cooked, add them to the greens.  Add the dressing, mix together then toss the toasted pumpkin seeds on top.  The sour of the lemon in the dressing, the sweet of the potato, the salty accents and the crunch of the seeds combine into something amazing!


Thank you for reading!  My people, I appreciate you all so much.  Be happy and healthy.  Ciao!

The What? Why? and Really? Anyone up for some good ole' KFB: Kentucky Fried Brain?

When I saw the title of the article

When I read the article. 

Do you see my face as I type this right now?

I'll pass on the fast food once again.  Poor little Ibrahim Langoo.  Smh.  Oh, poor little Ibrahim Langoo.  The boy probably just finished an intense afternoon of studying music sheets and scripts (he's a musical theater major) and could no longer take the orchestra concert going on in his tummy.  He just wanted to rest his weary head and fill his growling tummy with some brain food from good ole' KFC..........but not literally!  

So he orders the Gladiator box from this KFC restaurant in Colchester, Essex (UK) and sits down to grub.   Little did he know that in the next few bites he would find himself munching on a what seemed to be a chicken's cognitive control center also known as the brain! Ewwww!  I just can't even.  It was actually later confirmed to be a kidney by the KFC crew.  I don't know about that.  Looks pretty "brainy" to me.  But I guess since now that it's a kidney that makes things better, I suppose.  I mean maybe eating brain/kidney is what it takes to show you can handle the Gladiator Box. 

Now this is just another reason I'm enjoying the good life, my people.  When it comes down to what I munch on, I don't have to worry about things like THIS (link to a much better visual of this "wrinkled brain-like" kidney).  My question is how did this bodily organ find its way into this boy's meal.  

I know why.   

John Doe got a text from his friend while he was working on the inspection line at the factory, thought it said, "Free VIP tickets to see Barry Manilow", almost had a heart attack because that's his boy and lost focus just as the kidney was passing through on the conveyer belt.   No one else caught it and then it got coated in batter and sent to this KFC where it was stored in the freezer until the day Ibrahim walked in.  Now John will have to live with that mistake for the rest of his life....causing the traumatization of poor little Ibrahim.  Smh.  But for real!  This is not a good look for the fast food industry.

I've also heard of a couple of other instances where people have found unsightly and unsanitary things in their fast food meals.  

Surprises range from a fried mouse in a wrap to the unborn offspring of roaches in tacos.  Many have been considered myths as suggested by the law firm, Marler Clark.   This, however, was not a myth but was confirmed by modern day technology (snap* snap* on the smart phone).

This is actually an opportunity to really take a step back and consider if fast food is ever a good option.  I mean, everything has its advantages and disadvantages, right?  That's how we determine whether it works for us or not.  If advantages outweigh the disadvantages, then we're okay, right?  Let's see what fast food really has to offer.

  • Cheap
  • Convenient
  • Available at all times (even 2AM = Wendy's)
  • Variety of meal options
  • Serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and snacks

  • Contains very little nutritional value
  • Deficient in vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, the very molecules that prevent disease
  • Zero good fats but all saturated fats
  • Adverse effects of eating saturated fat and large amounts of salt and sugar outweighing the nutritional contributions of protein, carbohydrates and fats
  • Leaves you hungrier later on
  • Contributes to weight gain
  • Contributes to the difficulty of losing unwanted weight
  • Contributes to high cholesterol
  • Contributes to heart disease
  • Contributes to diabetes
  • Contributes to high blood pressure
  • Large serving sizes lead to overeating and consequently weight gain
  • Increases likelihood of having poor health
  • Increased risk of mortality
  • Contributes to global and childhood obesity
  • Downing a fast food meal IMMEDIATELY negatively affects the health of your blood vessels
    • Two quotes from the linked article:
      • "A single junk food meal, composed of saturated fat is detrimental to the health of the arteries".

      • "...after eating the junk food meal, the arteries of the study participants dilated 24% less than they did when in the fasting state. In contrast, the arteries were found to dilate normally and maintain good blood flow after the Mediterranean-type meal."..............quick translation = Normal blood vessel function was impaired by consuming the fast food meal.

For fast food, it's just not looking good.  It appears that the disadvantages are winning by "donkey lengths" as we say in JA.

So what's the conclusion here?  My people, say a big "Fall Back!" to empty calorie-packing, nutrient-lacking, high salt, sugar and fat-containing fast food meals.  Your body will give you a hug and fist bump like this:


Thank you for reading!  My people, I appreciate you all so much.  Be happy and healthy.  Ciao!

1.  Tell us about your bangin' bird food lifestyle.

I adopted vegetarianism about 9 years ago and moved into veganism almost 6 years ago. My nutritional approach has changed considerably over the course of this period and I also find that my philosophy and orientation toward the lifestyle is constantly shifting and evolving.

2.  Did you have a light bulb moment when you decided, "Okay, I am making this change now"? If so, what was it?

My journey into a plant-based lifestyle was more gradual. Though I was raised in an omnivorous household, I decided to become vegetarian while away for a few weeks at a summer program in 2004. I had never particularly enjoyed most meats and took that short period of independence to test the veggie waters. With the support from my mom as I sought to forge my own path, meat-free meals quickly became second nature and I haven't looked back since. In an effort to learn more about my nutritional needs as a vegetarian, I began reading nutritional guides which led to reading on subjects ranging from human health and ecology to, eventually, health politics and animal rights. Once I began to connect the dots, it became clear that a vegan diet was my next step.

3.  Was it difficult to make the switch?

I allowed myself to transition gradually rather than putting pressure on myself to be "100% vegan" but it wasn't long before my cravings and desires for animal foods simply fell away. By the time my diet was entirely vegan, I'd already been gently and intuitively weaning myself off of things for six months or so. I found during that time that if I went a certain period of time without consuming something (e.g. cow's milk) and then decided to consume it out of the blue, my tastebuds had changed and I actually became unexpectedly repulsed by it. Having this repeated realization provided me with the confirmation that I needed to eschew those items and it wasn't long before they fell out of my diet completely.

4.  What was the hardest food item to give up along the way?

I don't recall there being a food item that was particularly difficult to give up because my transition was very gradual and intuitive. I recommend people beginning this transition to be gentle with themselves and try to avoid becoming immobilized by all-or-nothing thinking. In my experience, and that of most others I've spoken to, cravings for these items diminish the longer you abstain from them. As you begin to reduce the pressure on your digestive system by removing some of the denser food items and infusing your meals with more fibrous, water-containing vegetables, your body can begin to reach unprecedented levels of functionality and increasingly reject anything that inhibits this upward movement.

5.  What sources of information (articles, books, videos, documentaries, blogs, etc) were helpful to you during the transition?

The book that I found most inspiring initially was The China Study by T. Colin Campbell. Though I didn't find these resources until I had already moved into veganism a bit, I also benefitted from the support of Marion Nestle's book Food Politics, Will Tuttle's book The World Peace Diet, legal scholar Gary Francione's work, and black feminist critical race theorist Breeze Harper's work.

6.  Was there anyone who particularly inspired you to make this lifestyle change?

A very close childhood friend of mine, as well as a friend that I had met at a summer program, went vegan before I did. Though I had my doubts and concerns, I thought "If they can do it, so can I!". I was also inspired by my congressional representative at the time, Dennis Kucinich.

7.  How did the switch affect you emotionally, mentally and physically?

In the process of eliminating various life-depleting substances starting with animal foods, I have completely healed my once chronic sinusitis (e.g. nonstop sinus woes and full-blown sinus infections every few months), constant lethargy, and anemia.

8.  What was the single the greatest thing about becoming a "bangin' bird food" eater?

Though my vegan diet initially featured a whole lot of Oreos and Swedish fish candies, going vegan started me on a path of listening to my body more attentively and being willing to allow things to fall out of my diet (and life in general) when it becomes clear that they no longer nourish me and simply create obstruction. Intimately connected to this is that adopting a vegan lifestyle can function as a valuable exercise in critical thinking about the many entrenched cultural purchasing patterns in which most people engage without much thought. 

As I began to investigate veganism and alter my purchasing patterns accordingly, going to a store to purchase certain items suddenly required more thought. Though my questions began with food, they quickly migrated to other aspects of my consumptive practices. I found myself asking: "Do I actually need this?" "Whose voice is not present here?" "If consuming this doesn't really serve the consumer, whom does it serve?" "Who decided that these excessive consumptive practices are necessary?" "What are the social, political, and psychological mechanisms that prevent most of the population from asking these questions and doing something about it?" 

Though my shift in diet helped me to begin posing these necessary questions, I should also mention that I have developed many critiques of the vegan movement. For example, I take issue with the way in which veganism has become a source of personal identity that is almost solely predicated on consumer activity within the vegan niche market. I find this framing of veganism troubling because it disables any earnest critique of our economic system and plant agriculture industries while making it difficult to pose broader questions about the violence and destruction that inhere in societies where citizens believe that they can just consume endlessly without producing.

 As such, I was ultimately forced to ask: "Can we actually purchase our way into post-domination utopia?" "What if the contemporary focus on 'conscious', 'green', 'ethical' consumption is, in fact, the problem?" "Are we prepared to live without our identities as consumers and can any liberation worth seeking be achieved otherwise?" Though I can't fully detail this line of inquiry here, suffice it to say that movement into a plant-based diet marked the beginning of an important conversation for me that has since shaped my thinking in virtually every area of my life.

9.  Has your "bangin' bird food" lifestyle had an effect on anyone around you?

It's not too unusual these days for people I know to tell me that they have embarked on a plant-based lifestyle, or have significantly increased their plant intake, due in part to their interactions with me. I'm flattered and encouraged by this because I typically avoid discussing diet and prefer to simply do my thing and welcome questions instead. Trite though it is, action (and attitude) speaks louder than words.

10.  Did you ever struggle with what you thought people would think about your new lifestyle? If so, how did you overcome that?

I think it's fair to say that I have always felt somewhat different than most of my peers for one reason or another and grew accustomed to marching to the beat of my own drum fairly early. Consequently, my movement into plant-based diet didn't feel like the wild departure from social normality that it might be for a person with a different background and personality. This isn't to say that I never feel self-conscious about the questions that I might pose in a friend's home, for example, because I know how others can sometimes interpret my questions and abstentions. Posing taboo questions and engaging in stigmatized behaviors has given me the opportunity to work through my own psychological discomfort. While this aspect of lifestyle change seems to intimidate many people considering beginning a transition into a similar lifestyle, I think it's critically important to acknowledge that these challenges arise because our culture is not yet asking these pertinent questions en masse but that isn't to say that it must remain this way. 

It's often mind-boggling to me that we live in this society where social norms dictate that we must consume any random concoction thrown onto the shelves by marketing executives without question and whether or not we are even hungry. What is more, pausing to investigate it is somehow inherently snooty or "picky"! Though I typically avoid initiating discussion of diet, I have found that many people can become very defensive simply from observing me doing my thing unobtrusively or once they have learned from someone else that I lead a more alternative lifestyle. I've found that the defensiveness and endless questioning in which others sometimes engage is likely indicative of where they are in their process of contemplating the issues at hand. By this I do not mean to position myself at the zenith of knowledge and experience in these matters, only that many people just encountering this information often show their discomfort and uneasiness through the questions that they ask and the statements that they make. 

Releasing the compulsive need to represent, explain, and somehow prove that I am "right" has allowed me serve as a more empathic listener and communicator than I feel I was when I first encountered these kinds of reactions. I find that at this point, I typically only feel shaken by someone's reaction to my actions if I am operating with some underlying insecurity or uncertainty. Learning to identify the true source of these anxieties has been a valuable personal development tool and has allowed me to serve as a better witness to other people's process of exploration.

11.  How have you been able to maintain this lifestyle? Has it been easy or difficult?

What has allowed me to maintain this lifestyle and go ever deeper with it is allowing my approach to be transformed by new information and experiences. At this stage of the game, my approach is most shaped by the paradigm of "deep tissue cleansing" developed by Gil Jacobs. What this means in a nutshell is a plant-centric diet and lifestyle that maximizes the metabolization process and emphasizes maintaining clear and open internal pathways rather than focusing on ingesting specific nutrients. The best resources to consult to learn about this paradigm are Arnold Ehret's landmark book The Mucusless Diet Healing System (there is a condensed version online:http://www.arnoldehret.org/healthclub/trilogy_1.html), Natalia Rose's book The Raw Food Detox Diet, and Tom DeVito's awesome blog "Independently Healthy" (http://releasenyc.wordpress.com/).

12.  Any restaurants you want to recommend?

My favorite restaurant of all time, and which I think truly epitomized the phrase "bangin' bird food", was Bonobo's Vegetarian Restaurant in NYC (they closed their doors last year to my great dismay). My favorite restaurant now is Quintessence in the East Village of NYC though I don't currently live there. 

I've found it possible to have an enjoyable meal at the vast majority of mainstream restaurants I visit despite what might be a seeming lack of plant-centered options on the menu. Though it can be hard at first, it's okay to make your needs known, ask as many questions as necessary, and feel good about how you spend your hard-earned resources to feed yourself if you're not growing and preparing your own food. While dining in another's home is a more delicate matter that I feel requires a slightly different approach, dining out is not an act of charity to the restaurant owners and your body is not a toxic waste disposal. A restaurant that deserves your business will want to provide the service that you desire to the best of their ability. Depending on your needs and preferences, they may not be able to accommodate you at this time but you also don't have to patronize them unless you choose to do so. Calling ahead when unsure or even bringing along something a bit dense like a whole avocado to fill-out a too-light salad (I'll sometimes order two smaller salads and have them combined into) can really make a difference if you find yourself in an establishment with limited flexibility.

13.  What is your favorite bangin' bird food?

Definitely my raw green vegetable juices, usually with a touch of burdock root. Though I don't yet have the skill, you can forage burdock root (and many other highly-medicinal, juice-able roots and herbs) all over the country. Markus Rothkranz's documentary "Free Food and Medicine" contains lots of inspiring information related to foraging and self-healing with very limited monetary resources.

Guess What I'm Eating: Papaya (Paw Paw)

This amazing fruit brings back the greatest memories of growing up on the most beautiful island in the world.  Jamaica, of course!  Imagine being able to eat the most delicious and interesting fruits freshly picked from the tree in your backyard or neighborhood. NO pesticides, NO additives, NO weird flavors and NO questionable sizes and shapes.....where a girl's gotta be wondering, "What in the world?".  Everything sweet, everything juicy, everything just ripe, everything ORGANIC!  That's the good life!  Ohhhh, do I miss those days!   But food transportation has made it possible for me to at least relive those memories for just a little bit, even if the fruit is freshly picked from elegantly organized tables on the outskirts of the supermarket.  Since I'm new in town, I am still looking for the best places to find cheap but good quality produce.  I have a large pool right now with Trader Joe's, Ralphs, H-Mart, Vons, Sprouts and Whole Foods swirling around in it. 

 Let me not lie.

 I cut off Whole Foods once I got here.  I only make a visit for specific things like nutritional yeast or carob powder.  They are unfortunately doing the most with those high prices.  Trader's Joe's is a staple and now I just recently found an even better deal for produce than H-mart at a large Mexican Supermarket. That's where I bought this gorgeous one! 

So what's the deal with papaya or paw paw, as we call it in Jamaica?  

For one, it is pretty easy to buy here.  That's a plus in my book.   Secondly, it has a beautiful orange color and a really sweet flavor.  It's melon-like and thus is packed with water so it's really refreshing as well.  
Side note:  I actually put it in my green smoothies from time to time.  Bomb!  

It is an excellent source of Vitamin C and Vitamin A and also contains other essential nutrients like folate, potassium, Vitamin E, Vitamin K and of course, fiber.   Fiber is the key to function if you catch my drift.  :)  It has thousands of micronutrients in the form of carotenes (gives the orange/yellow color) and flavonoids, which can serve as antioxidants and contribute to overall heart and colon health.  

Here's just a little history and random facts for ya:
  It's unclear where this fruit originated but it is thought to be native to the Americas and was termed the "fruit of the angels" by Christopher Columbus.  It is also known to contain an enzyme called papain that actually helps to digest protein, which is why "paw paw" can be used as a meat tenderizer.  

I'm not even playing around right now.  Grubbing!

You'll know it's ripe when 75% to 100% of the fruit is yellow or yellow-orange and gives slightly when you press into it.  It will also be ridiculously fragrant once the fruit is cut open.  
This big guy is great for fruit salads, dressings, drinks, sauces or just all by itself....as you can see  :)

Give this fruit a try if you haven't before.  I think you'll like it.

Bangin' Bird Food makes you Mentally Strong and Mentally Well

Remember my Bangin' Bird Food = Bangin' Brain Food post about how bangin' bird food has a powerful effect on your mind?  Here is just a little more food for thought.  Pun intended.

This incredible artwork was created by Chilean artist, Oscar Ramos.  The man is a beast of an artist but more importantly, he actually produced this amazing work specifically for a campaign in Chile to encourage healthy eating and lifestyles.  That's bangin'!

This dose of knowledge comes from one of my favorite easy access, quick summary and current with the times sources Science Daily.   These articles highlight one very important idea...the effect of bird food on your brain.  Bird food appears to build your willpower and well-being, significantly.  I'm down with that.

In a paper from the journal, Nicotine and Tobacco Research, researchers conducting a longitudinal study discovered some really interesting stuff.  The study conducted was actually the first of its kind to look at the connection between plant consumption and smoking cessation.  Can eating more fruits and veggies actually help you kick smoking to the curb?  Here is what they found:  

"Smokers who consumed the most fruit and vegetables were three times more likely to be tobacco-free for 30 days...than those consuming the lowest amount of fruits and vegetable"

30 days!  Goodness.  Long-time smokers can hardly last several hours without smoking.  Cravings are intense.  Like they want to smack you of they can't find a cigarette kind of cravings.  And they lasted 30 days!  That's more than pretty cool, that's absolutely amazing stuff.  Buuuuuut is that really something to get hype about?  Is that observation really telling us something profound about plant power?   Maybe the individuals who were eating more fruits and veggies were just more health-minded, which could be an indication of them possessing more willpower, or they just naturally liked fruits and veggies more?  Well, they controlled for health orientation in addition to other factors (gender, race, age, education, etc).  Here is a little more data for ya:

"They also found that smokers with higher fruit and vegetable consumption, smoked FEWER cigarettes per day, waited LONGER to smoke their first cigarette of the day and scored LOWER on the common test of nicotine dependence."

Photo Caption: Breaking Muscle

Now, that part is no joke.  Nicotine dependence is the addiction to nicotine: how badly the body desires to have nicotine swirling around in the blood supply.  Now this measurement was noted to be LOWER in those who were consuming higher amount of fruits and veggies.  I was really intrigued by the reasoning given for these observations.  Jeffrey P. Haibach, the first author on the paper, stated:

"It is possible that fruits and vegetables give people more of a feeling of satiety and fullness so that they feel less of a need to smoke, since smokers sometimes confuse hunger with an urge to smoke.  Foods like fruit and vegetables may actually WORSEN the taste of cigarettes."  

So G!   This approach could be incorporated in smoking cessation programs to facilitate, improve and maintain some serious success rates. 

More of Oscar Ramos's Amazingness

Another article by Science Daily talked about the link between high fruit and vegetable intake and a high level of well-being.  Researchers at Warwick University studying the eating habits of 80,000 British residents found a positive correlation between the amount of fruits and vegetables consumed daily and mental well-being.  As the amount of plants consumed increased, so did the mental well-being.  Well-being was found to be HIGHEST with an intake of seven daily portions.  One particular quote caught my attention.  In a press release by Warwick University, Sarah Stewart-Brown, co-author of the study stated, "The statistical power of fruit and vegetables was a surprise.  Diet has traditionally been ignored by well-being researchers."

Whoa!  The more plants you eat, the better you feel and the more likely you will be able to kick a bad habit like smoking...and with what we know about the importance of diet, it has largely been ignored in the past.  Interesting.   I wouldn't be surprised if this would be the case for many other bad habits since consuming a diet HIGH in fruits and veggies is known to increase mental clarity on a whole.

Can you buy that?......as well as more fruits and veggies to fill your fridge with life and goodness?   :)
Even if you can't completely buy it, rest your life on it, be a ride or die for it, I think this is information that definitely cannot be ignored.

Thank you for reading!  My people, I appreciate you all so much.  Be happy and healthy.  Ciao!

Ringing in the New Year!

My people!   Can you believe how quickly this year has come and gone?   In my opinion, I am still waiting for the other half of 2012.  It was like woooooosh.........then, Bam! 2013. It's just amazing how much has happened this year and there is so much that I am thankful for:

1.  Breathing
2.  Having my ten toes
3.  All my 5 senses working and equally so
4.  Seeing the Sunshine almost every morning in Sunny San Diego
5.  Loving my life
6.  An amazing mama
7.  Amazing sisters.....my roll dogs
8.  Blue Skies with Clouds that are so picturesque that they look absolutely fake
9.  The opportunity to tour the East Coast like I was somebody during the spring
10.  Being able to apply and get into medical school (What! What!)
11.  Green Plants
12.  Moving to the West Coast without drama
13.  Awesome old friends
14.  Lovely new ones too
15.  Fresh Air
16.  Bangin' Bird Food
17.  Flowers, my obsession
18.  More blessings of Dios
And the list goes on.  Practicing gratitude makes everything worthwhile and life ten times better.  

This year is going to be BANGIN'!   Why?  Well, I've been pondering on some cool ideas and I'm pretty excited to introduce them as year moves along.  I'll be:

  • Continuing the Bangin' Bird Food Eater Series because sharing is caring :) and sharing stories is how we connect and find inspiration.  
  • Introducing an entertaining series titled, "Transforming the Trusties", which documents my experience sharing the Bangin' Bird Food lifestyle with the Trusty family, a family that I love dearly.  You're bound to have some funny and interesting stories to share when Jamaicans and the words "vegetarian/vegan" come together! 
  • Starting a Pinterest and a Tumblr account to make it easier for readers to follow the blog and keep track of recipes and posts they like.
  • Starting the "The Real Series", a series of posts aimed at debunking the many myths of bangin' bird food eating and answering such questions as, "So, where do you get your protein?" or "Don't you only get calcium from milk?"
  • Highlighting the goodness of all the incredible edible plant life we have on this planet.  I'll showcase one vegetable, fruit, nut, seed, legume or other plant life and it's specific beneficial content (micronutrient/macronutrient quality) so you know why it's good for you and why it makes sense to eat it.
  • Most importantly, hoping you get as hype as I am about Bangin' Bird Food because it is an incredible life!

All of this will be here for you, my people.  So you can have a great time making one of the best decisions of your life! :)
