First real day at my new job. My brain is so foggy; from being on vacation, all the new info and eating so much cooked foods. I need to get back on my green juice flow!

Dragonfruit, Lychee, Passionfruit, Starfruit

How I need these in my life!

Was washing some spinach and found this little bugger. Couldve easily been some added protein. *CAREFULLY WASH YOUR FRUITS AND VEGGIES*

Banana “Ice Cream” with Toasted Coconut, Almonds, & Dark Chocolate. This really isn’t ice cream — it’s a one ingredient guiltless summer treat. All you need is a couple of frozen bananas and a food processor (or a blender). Click HERE for the full recipe

This IS real ice cream. Has got to be my favorite…gasless and mucus less!

At the office today I whipped up a little afternoon delight for myself. Since I just threw everything together and didn’t use any measuring utensils, all measurements will be approximations. I had a banana in the freezer from yesterday, so this is the base.

I wanted to experiment with some flavors so I brewed some green tea and soaked a piece of cinnamon bark in the tea for about an hour. My hope was that I’d come out with chocolate green tea ice cream. Needless to say, that didn’t happen. At least I tried!

INGREDIENTS

1 frozen ripe banana

1 tablespoon cacao powder

1/2 tablespoon honey (or sweetener of preference)

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

2 tablespoons green tea (brewed with cinnamon bark)

HOW-TO

1. Place all ingredients into blender and give it a whirl.

2. Pour into mug

3. Place in freezer until it reaches desired firmness*

Notes:

*My blender at school is an old one I bought over a year ago and the blades are going. With this said, I had to blend my ice-cream for a longer period of time, causing the bananas to melt from the heat of the blender. I also added water from the green tea which would require freezing to lend to the “ice-cream” texture I was looking for.

This wasn’t my best work, but it also wasn’t my worst. 

Since it’s getting warmer, I will be experimenting more with the cooler foods. Better luck next time!

For the past month I fell off the “eating right/consistent workout” bandwagon. Surprisingly my physique hasn’t changed too much, but my eating habits have taken a toll on my skin. Needless to say,  I need to get back into it. I miss working out. I miss dancing. I miss the crazy, pure energy. I miss the mental clarity. I miss my skin! It’s time to get back on that wagon and go back, harder and better! 

Yes, yes and yes please!

Easy Raw Cashew Dip for Spring
makes about 3 cups

2 cups soaked cashews, drained
1/2 cup clean water (not the soaking water)
1 Tbsp Sunny Paris Spices (or whatever you’d like to use)
2-4 dashes cayenne
1/2 tsp salt (to taste!)
2 tsp pumpkin seed’s
3 Tbsp lemon juice 
2 tsp ground flax seed
fine black pepper over top

Directions:

1. Soak cashews over night in salted water. Drain. 

2. Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until creamy – but still chunky. I like to add the water in a little at a time so that I can customize the thickness.

Serve with carrot sticks or other veggies. 

Looks soooo good!

A lot people tell me that talking about sex with your partner, laying out boundaries beforehand AND during, communicating and adjusting during, renegotiating boundaries during and after is awkward and “kills the mood.” Now frankly I don’t understand that, communication is awesome and usually makes the whole thing go smoother because I don’t have to worry about doing it right/the way they like it, but maybe it’s just that I’m an extremely verbal person and also tend to be very focused on my partner’s pleasure.

But for those of you who do think talking about the details of sex with your partner can be awkward, here are some useful phrases and ways to open the conversation.

Communication is sexy.

Some relevant questions for autistic/bad brains folks:

“Might you become nonverbal during sex?”
“Do you enjoy light touch, deep pressure, or both?”
“Can we negotiate in sign language?”
“I need my AAC device on the bedside table while we’re fucking.”
“If you want to stop, what mode of communication will you use to let me know? Will you be able to initiate communication to tell me to stop, or should I check in at regular intervals? How often should I check in?”
“Can I see a social story for this?”

All good questions!

Also:

“Are there any nonverbal signals I should look for to stop right away?”

“to slow down/back off?”

“that something is really really good?”

“Any sensory sensitivities or triggers?”

“Anything you really like?”
