Revelation. Peta (yes I'm a supreme Peta hater) is a bunch of fake Jains. Now the Jains deal with a way of life that is similar to Buddhism developing around the same time and out of the same set of ideas as it in India. Anywho...the reason I say Peta is some Jain-fakins (ha..I like that) is that they stress how they are all lovey dovey with animals yet leave out INSECTS. You've been caught suckas. Jains are hardcore. They sweep in front of their feet when they walk cause they are afraid that they may step on insects and wear mouth covering in fear of inhaling them. What now Peta. Sap suckas. You don't love no animals. And let's get it straight. Even with that Jains STILL put human life at the forefront. Damn...leave it to the Original Man.

My alike Sha-King posted a blog in his Right Foods blog (check the right margin dun) about Obama declaring himself a vegan. It was an article that pointed out that he basically should've waited until after the election. It now makes him look a little 'weird' (listen race is ENOUGH of a weight) plus remember that the dairy and meat mafia carry weight in elections in terms of the money they throw around. I commend him though for using health and eco-consciousness as his reasons vs the hug the animals/bestiality focus of groups like PETA (yeah I said it and I will KEEP saying it f*ck them. You did a whole campaign comparing slavery to the treatment of animals....WTF do you know about slavery REALLY. In fact PETA person...you want to separate yourself from the fact that it was YOUR ancestors who were involved in it. Don't get me started).
Now we have Oprah coming along taking a 'vegan fast pledge'. WTF? Any TRUE fast would be 'vegan'. He reasons are 'spiritual' (can we use a more ambigious term). I ain't knocking her (oh f*ck it, yes I am). First off how you going to do a vegan fast because of 'cruelty to animals' and then go back to your normal eating patterns after 7 days. "Uh...I ain't going to kill animals for 7 days then I'm going to be up on it again". Second of all, I use to work in the book retail business. I got frustrated when Oprah had her book club. People started coming in for the 'book of the week' without even knowing the title or author. They just wanted 'the Oprah book' because she said so. They actually got mad at us if we didn't know what it was. You mean to tell me that you sat on your fat ass for a whole show and didn't write down the book? Or you can't even remember it? You're dumb. Oprah has gone through so many yo yo diets, surgeries, etc. She IS NOT a good look in terms of modeling one's emotional or physical health after.
I may have been with her if her platform wasn't ruled by 'spirituality' and an undercurrent of weight loss. I roll with people like Dick Gregory (the Original Green Gangsta) who understands how this impacts Original People and is involved with Environmental Justice/Racism.
With all of that being said notice how the Peta-crew is all ready taking her as their next 'saint'.

Due to me working several jobs and a little bit of mental stress that I have yet to detox from, my body is working to rebel against me and get sick. So I'm upping my lemon ginger water and bringing a little more cayenne into my life.
Now my homegirl Cy down in Quisqueya(The Dominican Republic...we're bringing back the original names...oh yeah f*ck Spanish slave traders ALSO). Dropped this link for some healthy hip hop and green Reggaeton via her Soul Veg Folk page. Also check out her blog at Third World Raw Foodism
Also for all who have been asking I've put up the links to all of the places where I lay the pen down OR sell my wares so check it out to your right. I have actually added one new blog to the routine which is my Black Martial Arts blog so check it out.
Also I will be adding RA*new soon which are repurposed, recycled, remixed items for sell by the God. So keep an eye out for that in the next couple of days.

So I always have 1001 books that I am reading at once. Here is the latest one on the radar by a brother of Indian descent Raj Patel called "Stuffed and Starved". So far it is ill and I recomend it to folks. Here's a clip from the intro:
An argument that I find myself making over and over is that although diet is a very personal thing, it can be understood sociologically. And not only can it be understood this way, you have to understand it this way if you're to make sense of facts like one which I start the book with: that the closer Mexican teenagers are to the US border, the more likely they are to be overweight.
The dynamics of consumption that have been imposed on Mexico by its more powerful northern neighbour are having some profound effects. Mohammed writes with this article, which announces that Mexico is the second-most overweight country in the world, after the US, and if trends continue, will soon outweigh the gringos. More than 71 percent of Mexican women and 66 percent of Mexican men are overweight, according to the latest national surveys.
Interesting, and repugnant, are the comments that the online readers of the Arizona star have appended to the article. It links up with another sociological phenomenon about obesity - newspaper reports are systematically more likely, as Abigail Saguy says, "Given that higher weights are inversely correlated with social class in heterogeneous and affluent societies such as the United States and that African American and Mexican American women are especially likely to be categorized as obese, blaming fat people for their weight may serve to justify and reinforce social inequities."
Can't get to this without a little sociology.
The website for the book is nice with a blog and several other features. Check it out at Starved and Stuffed He also has a personal website over at Raj Patel.
Again, in my quest for various ethnic plant centered meals I've come across Vegan Mexican food. Check them out cause I'm all about learning how to make a vegan mole sauce and eventually make a raw one. They are a segment of the Food Empowerment Project which looks to be doing great things.
Finally check out Tegra Little and how she is making raw foodism her life and living

So I mentioned to a friend of mines that I sip on coconut water cause it is the natural gatoraid. I was going my hardcore 52 Hand Block work out (I'm back on the block son..don't test...yanowan nonoftis) and got a leg cramp. Took a shot of that joint and was feeling good. I also mentioned to them how it was used for BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS. Oh yeah...no more blood banks...coconut groves..what's up. Anywho...here are some coconut facts that came from an article I found (cited at the end of the jiz-oint).
Many persons have gone to the Caribbean, the Pacific Islands, Florida, Hawaii, South America or Southern Asia and have tasted some very refreshing coconut water. The palm trees you have become accustomed to while on vacation are very potent sources of coconut water that has many health benefits and uses that you probably did not know about. Coconut water is the purest liquid second only to water itself. It is chock full of electrolytes, calcium, potassium, magnesium; everything that is good for you.
Coconut water is the liquid that is taken from unripe coconuts. If coconuts get ripe the liquid that is inside will harden and become a part of the white flesh of the coconut, which is used to make coconut milk. So, picking the coconut while it is unripe will ensure that the body gets all the benefits of coconut water.
Coconut Water Hydrates the Body
Coconut water is an isotonic solution which replaces the fluids and minerals that the body loses during physical activities. For this reason, many athletes and persons who work out regularly are encouraged to drink coconut water to replace all the minerals and fluid that they lose while working out. Even the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) attest to the benefits of drinking coconut water when it fought for a patent in 2000 to market coconut water as the next big sports drinks.
Coconut Water Relieves Urinary Problems
If you consume coconut water on a regular basis it can reduce urinary problems. People who suffer from strangury, polyutra and other urinary ailments drink coconut water to relieve their symptoms.
Coconut Water Kills Intestinal Worms
Drinking coconut water with one teaspoon of olive oil for three days will kill intestinal worms and clear the stomach of worms, which makes for better digestion.
Coconut Water Breaks up Kidney Stones
People who have kidney problems and are plagued by kidney stones should drink coconut water in addition to taking their medication. Drinking coconut water regularly helps to break up kidney stones making them easier to push out.
Coconut Water is Used in Blood Transfusion
Coconut water is almost identical to blood plasma and this makes it easy to use for blood transfusion. In cases of emergency coconut water has been used as an intravenous hydration fluid instead of the standard IV fluid. During World War II many wounded soldiers were saved in the Pacific because of emergency transfusion using coconut water as plasma.
Coconut Water is an Antibacterial
Coconut water contains monolaurin, an antiviral, antibacterial and antiprozoal monoglyceride that is used to kill lipid-coated viruses such as HIV, Herpes, cytomegalovirus, flu and various pathogenic bacteria.
Coconut Water Controls Vomiting
Coconut water is great at reducing vomiting. People who have typhoid, malaria, fevers or other ailments that are known to induce vomiting drink coconut water to settle the stomach. As such, coconut water is also a good thing to drink during a hangover.
Green or unripe coconuts can be found in Asian and West Indian markets. All coconuts that they sell are closed up to keep coconut water from losing its nutrients. So, if you plan on buying a coconut, you can ask someone to chop the coconut open or you can open it yourself at home and drink it.

So when you think of a cactus the image of a tall green thingie with two up turned arms with thorns on it standing alone in the middle of the desert comes to mind. It is such an iconic image that one doesn't realize that it blooms with flowers or that there are other types of cactus. And one, if one has been so indoctrinated surely doesn't think that you can eat it or parts of it.
My first introduction into the cacti world was via FaaTma who put me on to Agave Nectar as a sweetener. It's my favorite sweetener now where as before I mainly used date sugar. The liquid alternative is on an poppin. For the record it can also be used by diabetics (phuck those artificial sweeteners).
Now I've been hit in the head recently by nopales. Everywhere I go I would find a reference to it. Shoot, when I popped over the ChelB's spot I noticed that she had a whole post on it. I am firmly convinced that my Mexican veggie peeps have been holding out on me (yeah..don't front). Then I ran into my Brown sista Metztli who dropped the recipe on me...yeah...it's that fly.
It proves again though my platform. Original Peoples indigenous cuisines have elements in it that can be adapted to plant centric diets. In fact, truth be told, who do you think the white vegans got INSPIRED by. There are no vegetarian traditions in post Greek Europe.
So eat up some cactus folks.
Posted by Alife Allah at 12:00 PM
Peace (or Peas...get the inside joke). My righteous sister I Medina Peaceful Earth recently wrote an article dealing with fasting from dairy. I remember that phase for me. I had a conversation with another one of my friends about cheese over all in European cuisine. Yo...they had no flavor. I mean their food (or did I mean that). If you talk to an Indian they got the curry, Jamaicans got jerk, so called African Americans got hot sauce (yes I do spritz it on my garden salads). Europe had nutin'. This is why on those Silk Road Adventures they brought back MAD SPICE. So in the absence of spices what does a dairy rich, spice poor culture do? They use cheese to cover up everything and this found its way to American cuisine.
That's why its important to learn how to use spices. Get that right folks. There are hundreds of them. I knew alot from my own experience with my Old Earth getting down in the kitchen. I had a Taina Earth for a minute so from that tradition I learned about some more. Finally I got hella Desi friends so again I got some more. And Jamaican folk be all around. I am still learning.
Alot of nuts and seeds can be used to make substitutes that are kinda ill. I've passed the soy phase.
So yes there are historical reasons why freaking dairy is a part of the diet of Original People who on the whole are lactose intolerant...it's called slavery, colonialism, and imperialism.

...I mean it was my first. The ever elusive DURIAN. Now my alike Sha-King made Knowledge Born to me about the fruit and I looked it up.
ALL BEAR WITNESS TO MY TAG FROM WIKIPEDIA (okay..felt melodramatic for a minute)
The durian (IPA: [ˈdʊəriən, -ɑn]) is the fruit of trees of the genus Durio belonging to the Malvaceae, a large family which includes hibiscus, okra, cotton, mallows and linden trees. Widely known and revered in Southeast Asia as the "King of Fruits," the fruit is distinctive for its large size, unique odour, and formidable thorn-covered husk. The fruit can grow up to 30 centimetres (12 in) long and 15 centimetres (6 in) in diameter, and typically weighs one to three kilograms (2 to 7 lbs). Its shape ranges from oblong to round, the colour of its husk green to brown, and its flesh pale-yellow to red, depending on the species.
The hard outer husk is covered with sharp, prickly thorns while the edible flesh within emits a distinctive odour, which is regarded as either fragrant or overpowering and offensive. The odour of the ripe fruit is strong and penetrating even when the husk is intact. Due to the unusual odour, the durian is forbidden from certain establishments such as hotels and public transportations in Southeast Asia. The odour has prompted many people to formulate evocative descriptions with views ranging from those of deep appreciation to intense disgust.
The durian, native to Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia, has only been known to the western world for about 600 years. The British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace famously described its flesh as "a rich custard highly flavoured with almonds" in the 19th century. The flesh can be consumed at various stages of ripeness and is used to flavour a wide variety of savoury and sweet edibles in Southeast Asian cuisines. The seeds can also be eaten when cooked. The name durian comes from the Malay word duri (thorn) together with the suffix -an.
Now let me let it out...the sh*t stinks when you open it. No way around it. Yet it is worth it. It is definitely unique. Has a spice like quality to it. It definitely can be used to make a unique raw vegan ice cream (did I mention that I have just learned how to make raw vegan ice cream and that I made GOJI berry raw vegan ice cream...the God don't play).
So I cracked the Durian open at Catch a Healthy Habit. It was an ill initiation (sorry Sha-King Lord. Couldn't wait. We can still hit China Town during Show and Prove weekend. I got the addresses of the spots).

I SAID I LIKE SCIENCE FICTION MUTHAJUMPA! So when something like a futuristic city comes along happening in my lifetime I get giddy like I'm over dosing on chewing too much coca leaf. I'm would say I'm the Black Buck Rodgers yet that would be dumb (and half of the people out there don't even realize WHY...cause Buck son is a racist term that was used to refer to Black men in the south..get INformed).
Second..Black Enterprise wants to be down. Now, I ain't mad when Green becomes more in the public eye (if you see anyone using that terminology Green Gangsta it's mine...inform a brother)so I keep a critical eye open. Yet from first view it is definitely a primer for those who don't know. Plus it's about not just 'not eating meat. It's about renewing our whole relationship to the environment. So check out Black(Green) Enterprise.
Also don't sleep on OriginalThoughtmag.com. You just won't be fresh and your friends will make fun of you.
Finally. I write. I'm a writer. I write the poems that make you heart and mental sing. Get my damn book slacker.. And check out my poet blog over at Black Author.
Posted by Alife Allah at 3:57 PM
Peace. Yesterday was mad productive (it was Build/Destroy what did ya think). I just finished driving in rain listening to Sade crushed with Blue Note breaks. Vegging out at Catch a Healthy habit while contemplating world domination. Still thinking about remixing the title of the blog cause even though I am raw foodist I wanna let the poor part of the planet knowledge that I ain't no snob and that every stage is to be valued in a cycle. Also, know and understand that the Nation's (that's us 5% y'all) dietary law isn't 'raw foodist' though it has elements in its foundation that point toward a vegetarian diet being best. For the low down (or high up) on the Nation' diet check out my righteous brother's musing on the subject.
The basics of our diet deals with getting rid of those scavengers out of your diet even if you eat meat. Pork (which was grafted/domesticated to digest waste and garbage...in a while I'll publish my own research on that) is just the most well known of the scavengers. Basically we're talking bout racoon, possum, clams, lobster, oysters, mussels, etc.
When I first got knowledge of self I use to slap pork out of people's hands and dare them to touch my food (maybe this is why my son I-Victory and his partner the young moon Adon use to do the same in their own Kindergarten classes to their classmates.)
While driving past a random park in New Heaven I looked over to see two huge wild turkeys??!!! WTF...ha.
Also. I like to shout out my peoples when they are blowing the kcuf up (as to why I spell it backwards if you remember THIS SONG you're cool...check out Grand Puba's verse). I still have to make sure that my margin joint are up to date.
First my home-slice ChelB (why didn't I know that you had those blogs..arghh).

Also Sunshine got her deserts going on. Vegetarian, Vegan and I see some raw joints on the horizon...say word (word).
Rise and Shine Deserts
Speaking of Deserts. Take some dehydrated cherries, lightly glaze them with raw agave nectar and sprinkle them with cacao powder. The God don't play.
Also in the next couple of weeks I will tell you about my quest to manufacture the perfect raw peach cobbler. (When people ask me what I miss most due to my new diet it ain't never bacon or chicken or cheese...its those damn memories of my Old Earth's Peace Cobbler).

So on the sneak I'm a Black Nerd. Yeah. That's right. I make that ish fly though don't doubt it. I actually have a site dedicated to Afrofuturism, sci-fi and all that stuff over at Blue Black Atlantis (that I'm about to get poppin' again).
Anyway one of my favorite things in sci-fi is alternate history (where one thing is change and a whole new world evolves). So check it. I found a site that hosts a whole bunch of alternative history joints. And amongst them I found this. Vegetarian World.
In the Vegetarian World, India becomes a major world power. The Cathars survive the crusades against them and vegetarian Catharism becomes a major religion in Europe and later elsewhere. Many other non-vegetarian related events occur, and this leads to a world not completely unlike our own, but quite different in many ways, too. The Vegetarian World has well over 100 pages (and counting) and is fully fleshed out (or "veggied out", as the case may be) with demographics info, maps, flags, and even some photos!
They have detailed the whole world in detail. Yo..go check it out at Vegetarian World
So I'll be dropping "how I get my raw on" thangs in most post at the end.
WTF do I do with all of this damn almond nut pulp left over after making almond milk?
You make nutmeat/almond pate. It'll have the finished consistency of like tuna. Basically you take all of that pulp mix in some nice seaweed flakes (of your choice) for body. Mix in some nice veggies (I use celery, onion, and carrots). Squeeze some lemon juice on that joint and let it chill to get firm. Yeah. You can make this of course without making almond milk ;-) I spread it on a leaf of romaine lettuce and it's a wrap!

First off if you read my blog and you ain't got a spot on SoulVegFolk ya playing yourself. We definitely getting our Builds on and networking on. (To my Soul Veg NYC folk I'm coming...ha). Come be down. Ya know ya wanna be.
Now. For you edumacational folk I got treats...word.
The first link is from Sunshine the Dreadlock Nomad. Oh yeah..check it, Nutritional Anthropology.
Now, sit down, the second one...take your time and READ and let's Build. It reinforces my stance that we have resources of our own that we don't even know about. Yet just like they went and raped the part of Asia called Africa of gold, diamonds and oil if they find out about 'this' they'll take that too. We have to realize that we have the means to feed ourself. This applies to this information that i am about to drop (calm down) and in general what is in our own communities. The trader has us thinking that there is more gold in another country. Our own country is when we are in tune with ourself. That's why I"m Asiatic. As I At I C. Many of us cannot C the resources in ourself or our community. Thus another 'man' takes us out of that state of being and exploits the resources that we are too blind to see.

You can make your home a more self contained eco-system. When things around you operate in cycles it is easier for you to see how in your interpersonal relationships you can do the same. So before I make my grand move West I have been doing so here on the Eastcoast and drawing up a plan on how I will do so in the West regardless of whether it is in a house or apartment.
First. Recycle your plastic, glass, and metal. Stop being lazy and stupid.
I built a homemade composting bucket in my backyard. It's fairly simple and I now have nice rich soil being manifested for my tomato garden. Via composting you can basically recycle all of your organic trash (that means food, paper, etc). Now this bucket is outside yet you can rock a smaller one inside with worms (don't get all girly-man on me) that can perform the same function. You can get nice with it (if you're the person of said ability like me) and do a science experiments with your babies. (Wait God..draw it up mathematically). This is also the science of entering into a relationship with a Blackwoman (who is made into the Earth). God Builds with her. He isn't repelled by the poor parts of her or those parts that she is afraid of, ashamed of. He just doesn't care for them in that he doesn't nourish them. What he does though is provide a sheltered quiet spot (closing up that 'garbage in a container) where he can then show her how to bring forth the best part. That which she thought was garbage is transformed into something beautiful. Cause ain't the Earth beautiful ;-) Check out the easy outdoor DIY Compost bin (ignore the 'girlistic website please)
Next thing that I made myself the last week is a solar powered dehydrator. Yes indeed. I'm all about Sol Power. Always have been. I like sun dried fruits...especially berries. I put them all up in trail mixes with my seeds and stuff. I made an ILL batch of dehydrated cherries the other day. (Draw it up mathematically God). Why is that dehydrated fruit so sweet? Fruit is symbolic to Understanding which is the best part and is preserved. God draws the water up from the Earth. He communicates with her. He is so clear in his actions in that he is a living example of being her support. She can see who he is. Ain't that sweet. Make your own DIY solar powered dehydrator

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF THOSE WHO CAME OUT TO THE GREEN GHETTO JOINT AND SUPPORTED! I was humbled to say the least. For those who don't know the Green Ghetto joint grew out of a sort of May Day after party that goes down in CT. This year we decided to run with it our way. We donate the $1.00/head funds toward hood gardens. We raised some gold y'all!
Now for those that weren't there...sorry. We tore sh#t up (and put it back cause we be dealing with composting like that). Now I've done poetry tours before yet singing with the Afrobeat Collective I felt like a rockstar. We started at sundown with me mixing in a siren from Fairfield and J on his sax wailing. Now the science is that that siren sound I sampled has been going off for years in Fairfield and everyone forgot that it's because it was a Sundown Town ie..where you darkies have to get out before sundown..thanks for working for us. They STILL have the siren though. Then we RIPPED into our cut "Black God, Black Earth" (and the crowd went wild!). Then we mixed in Asun Unique's (Peace to the God) Shimmy Shimmy Y'all. The part where he is saying..oh baby I like it raw. And I built with the crowd a minute while I urged them to go check out the exotic fruit taste table and come back and hold your fruit in the air....RIDICULOUS!!!!! And the house came DOWN when we did a cover of Fela Suffering and Smiling. Maaaaannnnnn. Green Gangsta rockstar..rflmao.
Other random joint. I work as a cook in a vegetarian cafe and a chef in a vegetarian restaurant. The restaurant of course is a little more 'upscale' (I get to listen to classical Indian music...FRESH..and the owners are actually Indian..what a concept). Anyway...I got to make a dish with buzz buttons the other day. Try one if you come across them...interesting.

Peace. Yes the God sings. Not that many people know it. For a glimpse of this if you are in New Haven this Saturday night check out the Green Ghetto joint at Lakeview park. I'll be performing with the New Haven Afrobeat Collective. They'll be Ital food served by Macabee's kitchen and Right Foods served by the Gods and Earths. Come through.

I know some raw foodist who are self centered and think only of their selves. I know some vegans who will hug a tree yet will pass a child in the ghetto without giving them a ounce of compassion. Let me dispel the myth that changing your diet will automatically change your persona. Hitler was a vegetarian. Conscious means that you are aware. All consciousness needs an adjective in front of it. That's why the term 'conscious rapper' is an oxymoron. A 'gangsta' rapper is conscious about his environment and surroundings. If you want to be righteous not eating meat will not automatically make you so. You have to consciously embark on that journey. And by the way, changing your eating habits does not make you better then anyone though you may be better off then them.
I mentioned before there are some terms that I just don't like using and as of this moment I am getting rid of one. Vegan. My main reason is that it is 'animal-centric'. The overall push is for compassion for animals vs. people. Also, there are indigenous concepts and realities that predate it's 'conception' in 1944. Finally, I have too often experienced a Eurocentric-racist twist to veganism that I am not comfortable with. So yes, the name of the blog is going to change slightly.
I also made Knowledge Born about that I was going to start a list of terminology for folks. Well. Here it is.
Plant Centered Diet: Where vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, beans, etc are the central focal point of one's diet. So called 'vegetarians' who eat dairy and/or fish/fowl may fall into this category.
Pure Vegetarian: A 'so called vegan' who doesn't consume animal products. They do not necessarily carry the philosophy of 'veganism'
Green Gangsta: One who is concerned with bringing eco-consciousness to the urban community in a manner in which Original people can digest it and not be put off by it. Also concerned with selecting appropriate green and fresh technologies.
More definitions will come.
Also, a couple of Queens have been getting on me about being stingy so I'll drop more recipes.
This is a quick morning drink/shot that I take often. The morning time is when your body is involved in elimination. I've mentioned before that I like OJ because..well. I just do. Citrus fruits are good for oxygenating the blood and cleaning out stuff like mucus. So sometimes what I also take is a shot of what I call my 'sun shot' also. It's simple. Squeeze one lime and one lemon. Mix in some water and grated ginger. It gives you dragon's heart or rather your blood and heart will be stimulated. It's tart, sour and bitter. So if you want to sweeten it up add a little agave nectar, date sugar or maple syrup. I like it straight and raw.

Peace,For those of my tree in the Nation we Raise the Rod in the month of May. This month I am raising the rod on several different particles that I am just keeping to myself at this time yet the focus is on.
In order to keep my word on something I dropped back here is my 'treat' for all the 420 heads. My 'Burning Bush Tea'.
*base tea (I use a black or red tea)
Use a juicer or rock it old fashion and get the juice from the fruit.
Now with Everclear stick some buds u in there. You have to let it steep in the dark for several weeks. I usually do it for a month at least.
Get that tea ready.
Rub a thin layer of agave nectar around the inside of the lip of the cup.
Pour in that juice and put a shot of the 'green nectar' in there. And if you're really feeling it...light it on fire for a brief sec.
