What Goes Around Comes Around

Standard

Shortly after I quit working at Toys R Us eight months ago it had got back to me that Bibi got fired as she was caught stealing from the store. See, the bitch got her’s even though she thought she was untouchable. The bitch couldn’t fight the universe and her inevitable karma!

Another New Year

Standard

What’s in the cards for the New Year?

I can see the goodness that many of us with “open eyes” hope and call out for as the energy of the 2017 eclipse has already made some rapid positive changes and I am sure that I’m not the only one at all to have recognized these special events as they shall enter strongly and variously into the year 2018.

I’ve been busy with constant work not too much time for anything else but here and there time to rest and relax. Although I don’t traditionally celebrate Christmas I had a wonderful holiday weekend last week that I really enjoyed.

I look forward to continuing to live peacefully, healthily and spiritually within my own personal journey and I’ve been quite lucky and feeling very blessed good things continue to happen to us good people regardless of the evil that lurks within the world we’ll remain protected an unaffected as long as we believe and stay true to our own celestial nature.

On my way out to shop yesterday I checked my mailbox and received a nice letter from my place of work I guess the preview to the beginning of my New Year is making it’s entrance already!

The Body Is The Temple

Make vegetarian pizza with Chao vegan cheese (my choice of cheese if need be)

Plant-based is absolutely the best way to go and I go that way naturally and that diet is also compatible with my blood-type as our blood-types have a lot to do with our distinct personalities (https://misslatoya.wordpress.com/2013/07/08/blood-typepersonality-type/).

In the early nineties a little over twenty years ago there was a health food store that I use to go to and purchase vitamins and vegan food from because back then I had stopped eating poultry and seafood altogether along with red meat. I hadn’t eaten red meat since I was about twelve. It was until I turned about eighteen that I would eat poultry and fish here and there and I still do from time to time but I never went back to eating red meat and I never will.

Then I use to head a little further down to Grand Union supermarket to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables-oh, those were the good ole days!

Use only healthy quality soy grounds if able to find it nowadays-Miss LaToya

This particular health food store sold quality products and they had a veggie protein soy grounds item that came in a package inside of a box that didn’t need to be refrigerated. And I use to cook it in a sauce and stuff it inside a pita-like pocket bread and it was so healthy and delicious I don’t see anything like this nowadays.

My mother and one of her friends had ate a meatless veggie burger from there once back then and told me how good that it was I had never ever had a veggie burger until recently.

I had a black bean veggie burger that tasted good and that filled me up as I heated and covered it with Chao brand original creamy vegan cheese slices (the only non dairy cheese that I ever tasted that could actually pass for cheese).

There is not really any good tasting or quality vegan cheese on the market except for Earth Balance vegan white cheddar puffs and Chao-Miss LaToya

“Daiya” vegan cheese slices were the nastiest thing I had ever tasted in my life and the shit had made me sick for a few days. “Tofutti” cheese slices were more on the style of Kraft singles American cheese yet the product still didn’t taste all that hot.

Just because something is labeled vegan or vegetarian doesn’t necessarily mean that it is healthy or nutritious for us it all depends on how the food was processed and manufactured. I don’t trust too many items which is why I do stick to simple fresh foods and grains like broccoli, pineapples, rice and the rest of that yummy stuff that is so very nutritious and healthy but I do like my soy milk by “Silk”, soy ice cream by “So Delicious” and oil and fruit-based buttery spread and white cheddar vegan puffs that is not made from any dairy by “Earth Balance”.

Garlic is one of the most clean and nutritional foods garlic a day will keep the doctor away, and it is also good in keeping evil spirits away-Miss LaToya

Soul Food

Standard

powdered-cakeThis past Friday, Sunday and Monday which was yesterday I enjoyed a nice and wonderful day at work doing my occupational activities and so far everything was professional as it should be and that is the way that I like it; to go to work enjoying what I do with no bullshit just doing good business, providing sufficient performance and helping out the customers as they need and inquire none of us that are genuinely productive and constructive and that mean well have any time for nonsense just peace and contentment.

When I got off the job I went straight to the neighborhood grocery to pick out some items and was so delighted to come across a great quality non dairy plant-based buttery spread that I had heard of and a non dairy vegan/vegetarian cheddar style cheese that I hadn’t paid attention to even notice was stocked there in that supermarket for as long as I have been going there. Now I don’t have to go out of my way or spend a fortune to buy my certain other non dairy items to indulge in as they are at a reasonable price and nearby location.

powdered-sweetsMy day was made after I left that supermarket as I love to eat and live healthily it is just exciting to me to know there are so many foods becoming more available for the vegan and vegetarian lifestyle to choose from. I love my soy meat (textured soy protein that I deliciously discovered years ago back in the early nineties) I love my very vanilla non dairy soy milk, vanilla non dairy ice cream and non dairy alternative cheese and butter all made from plants, fruits, vegetables and vegetable oils.

Our own personal environment and lifestyle play a significant role within keeping our aura/energy field as well as mind, body, and spirit maintained, unaffected and protected against negativity and darkness and that livelihood comes natural when we are in tune to the universe within our own specific innate tendency.

How I Stopped Constipation/The Essential Benefits Of Turmeric by misslatoya

hot-spiceAyushi said 4 days ago

I agree with the turmeric remedy to get rid of constipation. I had started getting constipated and had such a food regime to keep it under control. It would be fine for ten days and then return on the 11th day or so. I gave turmeric a try and I haven’t been constipated in two months now. It’s probably too soon to say anything but the problem was so frequently recurring earlier that two months have been such a relief!

spiceI am so into healthy eating and caring for the body I even use a natural deodorant product that contains the safest of ingredients and that is endorsed by many cancer treatment centers as it does not supply any harsh chemicals like the commercial brands do only mineral salts and plant based extracts and the deodorant works so well and wonderfully for me.

spicyThat would be really great if the Turmeric does turn out to be a solid remedy for you within the long run I hope that it does, if not, hopefully you will fine another natural source that works in harmony with you and within your corresponding food regimen and body chemistry, because that is the key for all of us as unique individuals with different bodily constitutions and the circumstances that effect our overall functions as well as our digestive tracts.

We need to find things that are agreeable with us in order for it to work properly and thoroughly, and what may be a remedy for us may not always be or serve as the same productive treatment or cure for someone else.

fruit-vegetable-grainIn our occasional search to find the specific things that will cater to our own personal individual needs and growth that may also call for the vital improvement within whatever it is that may sometimes ail us I am sure that at the same time we are all reaching for that ultimate goal of consistently endeavoring to maintain the most optimal of health that is possible.

Fresh, Pure And Wholesome

Standard

ice cream and berriesI take good bites out of life; the chunks that I know are going to be the most nutritious and beneficial for me. I eat and live very health-wise. Aside from feeding our bodies we also have to feed our brains and without a healthy constitution our minds will lack the virility that it needs to properly energize and function.

bananaWe are spirits walking around within our shells of flesh yet while we are here on the earth it is very important to maintain that vibrant and flexible shell with love and respect.

My Lifestyle Delights!

Standard

cupsI am free today and I have the entire weekend off and I am thrilled that I am in the mood to write today and my mind is on my taste buds and how I have been able to grocery shop and continue to find my favorite foods that go in accordance to my vegetarian lifestyle and that were available on the shelves.

I barely eat unless it is within my strict categories of quality and preference.

During and through out the last past three weeks up until now I had bought and fried some fresh whiting that had went deliciously well with my favorite Uncle Ben’s white rice. I also had bought fresh Perdue chicken wingettes and skinless chicken breast tenderloins to also go with my tasty white rice.

I indulged in preparing and eating both Mueller’s and Ronzoni thin spaghetti noodles that I heated and covered in a “Combo” flavored Prego sauce, a sauce with a distinctly delicious taste that is loaded with chunky garden vegetables that blends in entirely well with chopped carrots, zucchini, tomato, onions, green peppers, celery, garlic and spices.

babyI bought out all of the pouches of Betty Crocker corn bread/corn muffin mix that I made with pouring and stirring in my favorite Silk very vanilla soy milk so that I won’t run out of the product any time soon because every time I would go into the supermarket it was always sold out so I beat others to it this time!

And I caught the Cabot brand Monterey Jack cheese on sale and I eat that cheese because not only is it high quality but it is not made with any type of animal rennet just vegetable, and I grilled it over my Thomas English muffins.

I hadn’t really eaten cheese in about two whole years and I don’t eat it too often anymore like I use to yet when I do it is only natural cheeses (mozzarella, swiss and monterey jack) that contain vegetable/plant rennet.

I’ve had my chunks of whole watermelon that I usually eat with a spoon already for this year that I had brought when I got home in the morning-along with my other fresh fruit salads that I’d pick up and buy on the way to work to take to my overnight shifts to snack on.

saucers and cupWe have to live and do what makes us happy and although it is nice to go out to eat once in a while if one can trust the outside service and their sanitary practices there is nothing that is more satisfying than cooking and eating one’s own freshly bought and managed foods.

Like I have said before, to me, home cooking tastes far better than restaurant cooking and it is much cleaner and healthier because you know exactly how it is being prepared and served.
