I Was Slicing Up An Avocado

Possibly the best usage of our Swedish love, Jens Lekman's Your Arms Around Me, aside from that scene in Whip It, is this combination:


Cold/Flu-Kicking Soup

are evil.
But we all fall sick; be it due to the season, be it working in germ-prone environments, be it dorm life, be it otherwise.

The best way to clear your system? Take-No-Shizer-Soup!
Take any combination of dark leafy greens, a tasty veg stock, tomato paste/sauce, your body weight in garlic, a similar amount of ginger, some cayenne pepper, a little bit of lemon, any combination of vegetables, perhaps a grain or two, and consume liberally. You will feel better!

Vegan Pancakes!

Simplest recipe ever! And delicious!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


* 1 cup flour
* 1 tbsp sugar
* 2 tbsp baking powder
* 1/8 tsp salt
* 1 cup soy milk
* 2 tbsp vegetable oil


Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl until well mixed.

Mix in the soy milk and oil and beat together until batter is smooth.

Drop 1/4 cup of batter at a time onto a hot oiled griddle, or well greased frying pan over medium high heat. When bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake, approximately 3 minutes, flip, and cook the other side for another 2 minutes. Enjoy!
