Vegan Burrito

Hey you crazy beasts,

How many of you love some warm and tasty burritos? I am completely obsessed. One of the reasons that contributed for my massive weight gain while living in the US was the amount of times I chowed down those delicious veggie burritos from Chipotle. I have friends that can atest to that. Since I came back home I search like a mad person for the perfect veggie burrito recipe. Even though I haven’t quite made it yet, I sense I’m pretty close to getting that oh so addicting flavor. So here you go, my “Close Enough Veggie Burrito” recipe.

⇒You will need:

  • tortilla wraps (what ever kind you fancy, I use either flower or corn)
  • ripe avocado
  • lime juice
  • bean mix
  • rice/bulgur mix

∴For the bean mix:

  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil (or any other oil you prefer, like coconut oil)
  • 1 can of black  beans (400 gr)
  • 1/2 can of sweet corn
  • 2 tsp of chili powder
  • 2 tsp of mexican spices
  • salt
  • black pepper

∴For the rice/bulgur mix:

  • 1/4 onion
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (again or any other fat of you choosing)
  • salt
  • 1 bouillon cube (veggie)
  • 2 cups of rice
  • 1/2 cup of bulgur
  • 4 cups of water
  • grated carrots

This recipe will rend you around 6 to 8 servings. To me it only works for 6 because I eat on BEAST MODE.

I hope you enjoy it. Tell me in the comments if this recipe worked for you and what other suggestions you have for me as a foodie.

See you on the other side,

Katherine von Drachenberg – #WCW

Hey you lovely beasts,

Today I’m going to talk about the woman who made me want to get tattoos, the one and only Katherine von Drachenberg AKA Kat Von D.

I first got to know Kat’s work through Miami Ink, as most of her fans, I got mesmerized by her portrait skills and bad ass attitude. It was such an incredible work that I swore to my mom that my first tattoo would be made there – and I did it, but that’s a story for another day -. She showed me how tattooed girls can look hard and beautiful at the same time.

Kat went through a rough patch for a few years, but when she got sober her life turned around, and allied with her turning vegan, her whole life got a more positive vibe to it.

If you aren’t into tattoos, do not worry, Kat is far from being a one tricky pony, she has this amazing cruelty free/vegan makeup brand that will leave your jaw on the floor.

I have nothing but love and respect for her and her journey. Getting over an addiction an creating an empire at the same time is a show of immense strength and power that you can’t help but to want for yourself as well.

If you for some reason haven’t heard of Kat Von D, do yourself a favor and go look up her work, you won’t regret it.

So remember to spread the love, tag your friend or family member that inspires you, let them know you appreciate them. It’s all good karma!

Hello there you crazy beasts,

As we are starting a new month I decided to make it a special one, because, why not? I decided to dedicate the month of May to women who inspired me on way or another to better my body, my mind, well, my life in general.

To do so I’m going to use the tag #wcw to talk about why they are meaningful and how they impact me. Every Wednesday of this month I’ll introduce you to a different one. Continue reading

Bruce Lee & How I Am Water #SuckerPunch

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend” – Bruce Lee

Hello there crazy beasts,

In today’s post I’m going to talk about one of the greatest inspirations in my life: Bruce Lee. Some of you may know him as the movie star, or the martial arts expert, but to me he is bigger than that. Bruce was a man ahead of is time. that viewed the world in a different way. I’m not going to give you his bio because let’s face it, you have a million other sites, movies, books, that can give you a lot more information that I ever could fit in one post. Today i just want to let you know why Mr. Lee allowed me to make a big change in my life.
