Let’s face it, eating well is expensive… or it can be. Buying produce that is either organically (or biodynamically grown) is not cheap. But ingesting pesticide residue is anything but ideal.

Luckily, you can shave a few bucks off your grocery bill by growing a few of those staples from your diet. Best part, it is much easier than you think! You don’t need seeds or anything fancy. You can simply use kitchen scraps from your next meal. How great is that!

Cooking stoned? Is that a class?

"Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man … living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money."

— George Carlin (via realizes)

That is what religion teaches, not what God teaches and that is very sad.

I now have the urge to learn every single one

Any and all languages sound absolutely beautiful when sung by talented artists.  And this was no exception- if anything, this was a perfect example of how amazing all languages are.

weight-a-second:

Three quarters of my calories today came from a frappuccino. And, this, kids— is why we should refrain from holding calories to such high esteem. Because I wanted that fucking drink. So I got it. To be more specific, my roommate bought it for me but whatever. What I mean to say is, looking at…

I heart this.

This is a gal, Criss, who i found thru tumblr. She lost weight several years ago and became tumblr famous. But she released an blog about the struggles she has had since the weight loss. The resulting eating disorders and weight obsession. She is not happier, she has different problems now. Can she fit into smaller clothes, yes, but now food has an entirely different relationship than she previously had. Thin, fat and everything inbetween. We have issues, becoming smaller won’t fix us. We are not broken. Am I heavy, yes. It’s obvious. But my whole life people have told me something is inherently wrong with me because of it. That discrimination brought me a different perspective.  I try to be considerate of those out of the ordinary. I try to see the beauty in people who can’t see it in themselves. I try not to take people at face value because so often I am taken at mine. I have lots of insecurities because of how people treat me so I do my best to treat people with respect. I don’t want pity, I just felt the need to explain what the phrase “she would look amazing if she…” does to a person. Weight, by and large, is merely a number. If you need to change it to change the quality of your life, I wish you the best, but if you feel the need to change for society. I urge you to think twice. Society will never find you good enough and won’t help you if you succumb to it’s snares. Love one another. See the person, not their size.

(CBS News) New research shows that Jehovah’s Witnesses who refuse blood transfusions after cardiac surgery are at no greater health risks than people who undergo the procedure.
The study, which was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine on July 2, intended to look at patients who do not undergo blood transfusions after cardiac surgery. Because Jehovah’s Witnesses believe on religious grounds that they are not supposed to ingest the blood of another, they made ideal test subjects.
The study looked at 48,986 non-Witnesses who had blood transfusions and 322 Witnesses who refused to have blood transfusions who all underwent cardiac surgery between 1983 to 2011. After matching the patients up by similar cases, researchers found both groups had similar risks for dying at the hospital. However, Witnesses had lower chances of having additional operations for bleeding, renal failure and sepsis compared with non-Witnesses who received transfusions. 
"It behooves us to examine more closely some Jehovah Witness processes of care and implement them in our routine surgeries," study author Dr. Colleen Koch, a cardiothoracic anesthesiologist at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, said to HealthDay
Witnesses spent less time in the intensive care unit and less time in the hospital than the other group. They also had higher survival rates compared to the people who were non-witnesses at 95 percent and 89 percent respectively. Both groups had close 20-year survival rates (34 percent versus 32 percent). 
According to the Mayo Clinic, blood transfusions can cause a number of health complications, including allergic reactions, fevers, lung injury, spread of bloodborne infections and acute immune hemolytic reaction - a rare transfusion reaction in which a person’s body attacks the new blood because it’s not the proper type. But, HealthDay points out that screening techniques introduced in the 1990s have made it safer than it previously was. 
Transfusion is typically ordered because of the risk of anemia - which the National Institutes of Health defines as a condition where the body does not have enough red blood cells. Anemia can cause the person to feel tired or weak, have headaches and shortness of breath, as well as problems concentrating or thinking. 
Dr. Victor A. Ferraris, a professor of cardiothoracic surgery at the University of Kentucky, wrote in an accompanying commentarythat the study shows that it might do doctors well to look at their own practices. 
"The findings of this analysis by Pattakos and colleagues add to the increasing data that suggest that more conservative use of blood transfusions would be in our patients’ interest, in both Witnesses and non-Witnesses," he stated. 
But, Dr. Gregory Fontana, chair of cardiothoracic surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, warns HealthDay that the results don’t indicate that we should expand the findings to everyone. 
"just because this paper is published, we cannot willy nilly start treating everyone like Jehovah’s Witnesses," he told HealthDay. "It does provide further evidence that transfusion with real indication carries a risk that heretofore has been underestimated."

Very interesting ;)

Before the glorification of “skinny”. There was something called “sexy”.

but skinny is sexy as well!!!

Defining one body type as sexy to the exclusive of others is oppressive. Your body is not required to be ‘sexy’ to have value.

i also like how all the “skinny is not sexy let me show what is REAL sexy it is just this one thing” posts that get the most support always seem to have a wider-but-still-hourglass-shaped, usually white, cis woman with flawless skin and no bulges or cellulite or scars
like, that’s not really “unconventional beauty standard” as much as it is “jessica rabbit.” and while that’s cool, it’s not really pushing much forward.

The more I see this picture the more annoyed I get. This is a sexy woman and that is great. She is saying she does not fit the sterotypical model figure, not that there is anything wrong with it, and that is a good step. But what annoys me is that anything other than skinny has to be “alternative” or “fetish”. I find all kinds of women sexy and I would love to see variety without it being a shtick. My thought for the night.

I am over weight, obese, big, curvy, fat or whatever else descriptor you wish to use. I plan trips and worry more about fitting in the seat than if my flight is on time. I walk in rooms and hope my thighs don’t make too much noise. I am constantly aware of myself. I am also constantly pretending I don’t care.

I hate the body I have and I want to make it different. I am taking steps to do just that. What I truly need though is acceptance. Real acceptance, not the “I will always love you but you still need to lose weight” kind of acceptance. I know I need to lose weight, my body hurts and Im not happy. I don’t need reminded or monitored, I just need accepted.

I don’t need coddling either. I don’t need a boyfriend. As much as I want to be loved I want to be happy first. I need to wrap my brain around that concept. I have friends and support and filial love. I will survive but now I wish to flourish. Any positive comments would be great. My mom always tried incentives but they just felt like ultimatums. “Lose weight and Ill take you some place you have never been” has always felt like I wasn’t good enough to go unless I was thin. Punished if I failed. That pressure takes away the joy of the experience. So no deals with myself. Just living a slightly more comfortable existence.

Thanks for the space to speak my thoughts.
