ANGRY Sauce!

Posted By Princess Superstar! on September 13th, 2009

friends-127-1

there i was coming off the beach in long island with my friend heather laine,

and beckoning me from the ocean, a sign from a lovely burger king-

telling me -come on get angry!!

i suppose burger king figured there wasn’t enough anger in the world

so we need crispy angry onions, (what’s a crispy angry onion?)

angry sauce, and furthermore, a command to get angry!

thanks burger king i am angry! at YOU! I HATE YOU!!!! YOU NEVER LOVED ME!

YOU NEVER LOVED ANY OF US!!!

i wonder if the people at the check out get yelled at even more now for being slow.

(the funny part about this story is that while we were taking this picture,

a car rolls up blasting a really obscure song i recorded ten years ago with mc paul barman

called “mtv get off the air part 2”, and the chick had no idea who i was,

and i was so stunned since i haven’t heard the song in years so i went up to the car and was like,

oh that’s me from ten years ago, how weird!

and she flipped out and took a picture with me.

i should have disowned her as a fan because she was going to burger king,

but i can allow it just this once, for the sheer timing of the whole incident was strange.

You need to see this movie, The Future of Food.

Basically this crap company is running small farmers out of business, monopolizing seed and creating tons of genetically modified foods (outlawed in europe for good reason- if you can afford it, buy organic!!). Now on top of this I read the following about their shadiness in Iraq and Afghanistan. Appalling.
Monsanto in Iraq and Afghanistan
By Alexis Baden-Mayer, Esq.
Organic Consumers Association,September 2, 2009

From the start of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, OCA has been tracking the opportunities for Monsanto, a well-known war profiteer (Agent Orange, Vietnam), to take advantage of the current occupations. These include pushing glyphosate (Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide) for poppy eradication in Afghanistan and opening the Iraqi market to the patenting of plants and seeds while preventing farmers from saving registered seed varieties.

As Vanity Fair reported last year, “In Iraq, the groundwork has been laid to protect the patents of Monsanto and other G.M.-seed companies. One of L. Paul Bremer’s last acts as head of the Coalition Provisional Authority was an order stipulating that ‘farmers shall be prohibited from re-using seeds of protected varieties.’ Monsanto has said that it has no interest in doing business in Iraq, but should the company change its mind, the American-style law is in place.”

In fact, Monsanto has already been doing business in Iraq. According to a 2004 USAID Transition Plan for the Agriculture Sector in Iraq, “All the major international players in the pesticide field are now present in Iraq: Dow (USA), Syngenta (Swiss), Dupont (USA), Bayer (Germany), Monsanto (USA), Novartis, FMC (USA), Dupont and Uniroyal, BSF and Cynamide.”

Monsanto’s latest opportunity to do business in the US’s occupied territories has been created by the National Guard’s “Agri-Business Development Teams.” The Missouri National Guard, which has maintained Agri-Business Development Teams in Nangarhar Province in Afghanistan since fall 2007, hosted Safi Mohammed Hussein, agriculture director of Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province, on a recent visit to Missouri. While in St. Louis, Safi toured the headquarters of biotech giant Monsanto.

lemon. the new deodorant.

Posted By Princess Superstar! on August 21st, 2009

ok you guys are not gonna believe this.

if you are like me, you have tried every manner of deodorant from the health food store-

Toms, Dr. Hauschka, Crystal Whatever.

(oh in case you are using crap like Mennen extra pine blue ocean stink bomb crap STOP NOW- there is aluminum in nearly all commercial deodorants and aluminum has been proven to lead to Alzheimer’s!!!)

so my dear friend Miguel told me to scrub my underarms thoroughly in the shower with soap,

and then take a wedge of lemon and rub it all over your underarms (like deodorant)

i was like yeah right–

look i can sweat. if you’ve ever seen me live, you know, i can sweat.

and contrary to popular opinion that i am actually composed of dried rose petals, i can get a teeny bit stinky.

but lo and behold, this lemon really works! i am not kidding.

through 3 hour jivamukti (no joke) yoga practice, a 4 mile hike, etc.-

i’m smellin sweet as lemon pie.

try it.

no more plastics, no more chemicals on your skin and in the water from the deodorant factory,

no more ozone-depleting aerosols or testing on animals-

straight off the tree,

start a stinkin’ revolution!

quitting smoking

Posted By Princess Superstar! on July 24th, 2009

Today I am featured on this quitting smoking website.

I wrote a song a long time ago called “The Quitting Smoking Song”

I can’t even believe it but I used to smoke for many many years.

If you are having trouble quitting, I can help you.

DO IT. It’s killing you.

Benefits of Wheatgrass

Posted By Princess Superstar! on June 30th, 2009

i know it tastes like shit but i try to drink it every day anyway.

here are the reasons why I do this thing (taken from a great site, rawfoodnation.)

the only thing I disagree with is the weight loss claim.

but maybe if i didn’t stuff my face with raw desserts everyday it would make me lose weight, who knows.

 

10 Benefits of Wheatgrass Juice:

10.  Wheatgrass juice loves your blood (not in a vampire kind of way). It increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.

9. It also works great on your skin! Externally applied to the skin can help eliminate itching almost immediately. Will soothe sunburned skin and act as a disinfectant. Rubbed into the scalp before a shampoo, it will help mend damaged hair and alleviate itchy, scaly, scalp conditions. Is soothing and healing for cuts, burns, scrapes, rashes, poison ivy, athlete’s foot, insect bites, boils, sores, open ulcers, tumors, and so on. Use as a poultice and replace every two to four hours.

8.  Wheatgrass gives you sweet dreams. And this is without you juicing it. Wheatgrass works as a sleep aide. Just place a tray of living wheatgrass near the head of your bed. It will enhance the oxygen in the air and generate healthful negative ions to help you sleep more soundly. Oh yeah, no work involved there!

7. It’s great for your mouth! Yes, it sweetens the breath and firms up and tightens gums. Just gargle with the juice.

6. Wheatgrass contains beneficial enzymes. Whether you have a cut finger you want to heal or you desire to lose five pounds…enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside by adding exogenous enzymes, like the ones found in wheatgrass juice.

5. It’s a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.

4. Wheatgrass juice restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.

3. It also stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.

2. Wheatgrass juice s a beauty treatment that slows down the aging process when the juice is consumed. Wheatgrass will cleanse your blood and help rejuvenate aging cells, slowing the aging process way down, making you feel more alive right away. It will help tighten loose and sagging skin. No prescription from a dermatologist or laser skin procedure will take care of you inside and out like wheatgrass.

1. Wheatgrass juice is 70% chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the first product of light and contains more light energy than any other element. Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life. So drinking wheatgrass juice is like drinking life! Bottoms up!

 

that’s messed up

Posted By Princess Superstar! on June 10th, 2009

From Organic Consumers Association:

Why Government Nutrition Programs Shouldn’t Ban Organic

A growing number of states have been preventing WIC (Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children) recipients from purchasing organic products based on three major excuses: the ‘high’ cost of organics, a supposed lack of scientific evidence that organic produce is more nutritious than its conventional counterparts, and recipient preferences (see how your state stands on this issue here). OCA is taking this issue to Congress, to demand that the federal government acknowledge the benefits of an organic diet when the Child Nutrition Act and WIC are reauthorized this year.

my favorite vegan restaurants in the world

Posted By Princess Superstar! on April 29th, 2009

saf

A big benefit of my job is I travel the world.

And a vegan’s gotta know where to eat.

Here’s a list of my faves-

Please add yours so we all know where to go!!

NEW YORK:

Pure Food and Wine Totally overpriced raw food but in a class by itself. Love the Dr. Cow cheese plate (nut cheeses made in Brooklyn) and the Corn Tamales. Also the mushroom appetizer is sick. But I get sick when I look at the check.

Caravan of Dreams. Totally hippy inside but the Burrito will feed you for a week. Also try the Pumpkin Goji berry shake for a hearty stomach filler. Their guacamole can’t be beat and also I love their default salad dressing. Try not to go when music is playing or you will be annoyed and can’t hear your lunch mate speaking.

Quintessence. Is all raw and has a fantastic brunch. I go here at least once a week when I’m home. Try their Fofu Benedict made out of Irish moss (a seaweed). Also this place got me through my pizza addiction- try the raw sausage pizza. The desserts aren’t my favorite but other people like them.

Organic Avenue: Their smoothies rock and come in cool glass bottles. I love the blueberry spirulina coconut one. Also watch out for their deep dish raw cheesecake. Really pricey though. But hey, these ingredients are expensive. You can do a fast with them and they will deliver to you. Can’t beat NYC- a cleanse delivered right to your door!

Raw Soul. Raw soul food in Harlem. My friend was supposed to take me and he flaked and I’m still waiting for him to take me. Apparently it’s amazing.

Jivamukti Cafe I basically live here because I am always at my beloved yoga center. Amazing rosemary seitan salad! When i used to eat bread i would always get the grilled portabello mushroom. Also before i quit sugar i had an addiction to the vegan red velvet cupcakes, they are dangerous. Not so great for raw but it’s getting better. The best part about the cafe is the vibes- special place that is!

Also need to shout out my pal Moby’s Teany although he doesn’t own it anymore. The tea selection is out of this world and the peanut butter bomb cake is lethal.

CALIFORNIA:

Planet Raw. Me and my good friend Heather Laine ate a raw pasta fettucini made with kelp noodles and macadamia nut cheese and seriously you could not tell the difference from real pasta. I know sometimes people are like- oh you wouldn’t taste the difference between this raw pizza and real pizza and you are like, yeah right, whatever-but seriously, you couldn’t tell. We talk about that pasta all the time and have tried to imitate it and just can’t.

UK

LONDON:

inspiral

Inspiral Lounge in Camden. Has some raw and some cooked options. I had a lovely nutburger here and the guys behind the counter are really really cute and friendly which of course I love. However, they had real milk and some other dairy there and I was not impressed with that. At least make it vegan people if you have raw there, that doesn’t make sense at all!

SAF in Shoreditch. Even though it’s tainted by a bad fight with my ex-boyfriend, still one of my favorites of all time. Try their raw lasagne. It totally beats Pure Food and Wine’s raw lasagna although that kicks ass too. Also their raw ice cream- Maca flavor. Oh man. Like whoa.Pictured above is the beetroot ravioli with nutcheese, also awesome. Live nachos good but not as good as at my hometown spot, Caravan of Dreams. Non-vegans totally flip out here  at SAF so it’s  good to take them and blow their minds!

I also had some nice food and some wheatgrass at Planet Organic around Oxford Circus. Not all vegan though. I did pay nearly $25 for a bag of raw cacao nibs there too which was stupid but hey, a girl has to have her chocolate.

GERMANY

LEIPZIG:

Zest Wow was this a surprise. Imagine being in the middle of Germany land of wienerschnitzel or however you call it (I don’t even wanna know) and finding this INCREDIBLE restaurant which makes vegan food into an art form. I would go gig there again just so I could eat there. Hear that Mr. Promoter? Invite me back!

BERLIN:

Yellow Sunshine in Kreuzberg. This is not really healthy junky vegan food like deep fried fake corn dogs and nice soy mango lassis. I can’t eat there anymore it’s too fried but good to take your non vegan friends so they can marvel and the faux rib sandwich.

Majas Deli This place is more healthy and they make nice salads. But the real thing is here is the dessert. Wow, vegan cupcakes, brownies and delicious cakes, get a side of soy whip. Yum.

This just in- La ManoVerde gets HUGE props for being one of the best vegan (with raw options) in all of Europe.  Try the raw fettucini alfredo made with zucchini and the raw sushi. Incredible and not too heavy like other raw restaurants. We had the best time hanging out with the guy that opened this and SAF- Jean. He even gave me a free chocolate mousse which was unbelievable. I want to open one in NYC!

And while in Berlin, have to give a shout out to the best yoga studio run by my darling friends Anja and Christian- YogaLoft

MUNICH:

My buddies run the Jivamukti yoga studio in Munchen, which has a small vegan deli next door with slim pickins. But the real prize is  the incredible restaurant Zerwick. I like the Indian plate and also the chocolate dessert- I can’t remember what it was but it was like a chocolate bomb!

Apparently there is also a SAF here but I haven’t been.

JAPAN

TOKYO:

Brown Rice Cafe. I walked by here and it looked great but like most things in Tokyo it has weird hours.

My manager and I ate at another vegan restaurant which was quite good, in fact we were starving because it’s so hard to be vegan in Tokyo- everything has fish in it! We ordered 3 plates of food which were delicious  but I remember  it was impossible to get any sort of salad there which I really wanted. And I forgot the name. Maybe he will post it, Dave…?

AUSTRALIA

BYRON BAY:

I totally thought there would be more vegan places here because it’s all hippied out but they did have a very nice health food store with a great juice bar called Santos. It was also there that I ate my first chermoya fruit. HOLY SHIT. Have you ever eaten one of those? it’s like candy drippy ice cream, but a fruit. Have never been able to find it since. So if you ever want to seduce me just find me one and i am all yours.

There are more but I am forgetting.

So-PLEASE PLEASE -people post your links so we can make a nice worldwide vegan restaurant database here!
