"'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'

'You're claiming the right to be unhappy,' said Mustapha Mond.

'All right, then,' said the Savage defiantly, 'I'm claiming the right to be unhappy.'

'Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have syphilis and cancer; the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen to-morrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.

'I claim them all,' said the Savage at last."

Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy.

Always reblog.

I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.

I love that last gif.  She looks so frustrated.  Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”

She does have a point though..

Lunch the last 2 days!

Today: IP veggie chili. I cut up a whole zucchini and sautéed it with cumin, chili powder, fresh garlic, and onion powder and cooked til it was tender. I added 8 oz of water to the chili (I think the directions say 6 oz, but I wanted mine thinner) and then added the zucchini with some cilantro and sea salt to top it off. My favorite part of the chili is the 4 beans that are included. Definitely a highlight of the meal 😜

Yesterday: IP mushroom soup. It’s not my favorite, but it’s okay. I also got fresh green beans, which I was VERY excited about. I put some turkey pepperoni in the pan to sauté (I know, not protocol but it doesn’t throw me out of ketosis or impact my weight loss and if it helps me eat my veggies, I’m doing it!) so anyways, the turkey pepperoni legit tasted like bacon after I tossed it in the pan for a bit. I added fresh garlic, sea salt and pepper, then tossed in the green beans for about 15 minutes. Oh geez, so good. It was so filling that I couldn’t even finish it. I will definitely be making that again.

I couldn’t help checking the scale before my weigh in. Bad, I know. However, I am happy to report that I’m losing big time! Yessss!!!

Cauliflower tortillas!!!

So I am usually wary of trying recipes like this because I never seem to be able to follow them correctly and either (a) I ruin a step and get mad or (b) I think I follow everything right and then it tastes terrible. Not these!!!! These cauliflower tortillas take a bit of time but they are so worth it when it comes to having a faux starch! I made it with fajita-ish stuff (shocking, I know! I love fajitas right now!)

I have to be really picky about what recipes I can try on this eating program and this one only has cauliflower, eggs, salt and pepper. You don’t get much more clean/paleo than that! I hiiiiiighly recommend giving this recipe a shot! They are definitely sturdy enough to be used as a tortilla but I opted to cut them with my fork. I think next time I make them, I’ll spread the mix a bit thinner before I put it in the oven, and maybe add some seasonings into the “batter”. I am so pleased with these! OMG so good!!!

Here’s the link to the recipe!
