Hey, Star here!
Today's recipe is going to be on 'How To Make No-Bake Healthy Peanut Butter Pie.' I hope you enjoy!
1 cup nut butter of choice
3 medium sized bananas
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, however you can substitute this with 1/4 extra cup peanut butter
stevia extract to taste, otherwise 3-4 tsp powdered sugar, or even liquid sweetener such as maple syrup
01: First, blend all ingredients well, so everything is smooth and without lumps.
02: Pour the mixture into a prepared pie crust and freeze until firm, if not using the coconut oil, than chill in the fridge.
03: Thaw pie before eating.
* If you want a deeper dish pie use 1 1/2 c peanut butter, 4 1/2 bananas, 1 tbsp vanilla, a little over 1/8 tsp salt, 1/4c plus 2 tbsp coconut oil, and stevia to taste or 5 tbsp powdered sugar.
Fat: 13.5g (healthy fat!)

I know they're a lot of food myths out there, and here is a tip to prove the most common ones wrong.
Myth: Organic food has more nutrients than the conventional kind.
Truth: Although buying organic might help the environment, there's really no difference.
Myth: Grilled chicken sandwiches beat burgers
Truth: Although grilled chicken seems healthier, it actually has a lot more calories. It can also be loaded with sodium, hence most restaurants inject it with seasalt to keep it moist.
Myth: Wheat is terrible
Truth: Wheat contains a lot of nutrients thats good for your daily diet, such as folate. Few gluten free products have such vitamin B, or in this case, folate.
Myth: Raw vegetables are best
Truth: There is absolutely no need to break your teeth eating carrots. In fact, cooking veggies can even increase nutrients. Cooking may also release other nutrients, such as in corn or carrots, the nutrients beta-carotene is released.
Myth: Brown eggs are better than white
Truth: Although they may look healthier, there's little difference between the 2 eggs, brown eggs just come from a different type of hen. Instead, spend your money on omega-3 eggs, which are much healthier.
Myth: Fruit can help you lose weight
Truth: Although fruits are healthy, loading up on them won't help-they still contain sugar and calories.

I was doing random google searches, and I came across this article, which interested me a great deal. English being my mother tongue, I've always wondered what other words we could have added to the language. Turns out, they're words in other languages that are more convenient than English, here are some.
Cafuné is Brazilian Portuguese. It’s described as “The act of tenderly running one’s fingers through someone’s hair.” A word like this in English could actually be very popular. How cool would that be?
Ayurnamat is Inuit and it’s a word describing the philosophy that there is no reason to worry about the things that can’t be changed. This is sort of like the word Hakuna Matata, but thats pretty over-used so I suggest trying Ayurnamat instead!
Prozvonit is Czech and it means to call a cell phone and let it ring once or twice so the person will call back, saving the first person caller money. The concept is quite confusing, and isn't exactly proper Czech grammar.
Jayus is Indonesian and it refers to a joke so poorly told and so unfunny that one cannot help but to laugh. I love this word! It's really convenient, and it happens a lot with cheesy jokes.
Dépaysement is French for the feeling that comes from not being in one’s home country. So instead of homesick, it’s home countrysick! I think the translators could’ve managed to translate that one!
Donaldkacsázás is Hungarian and it literally means “Donald Duck-ing,” aka wearing a shirt but no pants nor underpants at home. It’s hilarious that the Hungarians actually came up with that and made it an official word! Nice to say, don't you think?
Saudade is a Portuguese word that describes the feeling of longing for something or someone whom you love and which is lost. I’m not sure how to pronounce it, but I’m sure it sounds absolutely romantic.
Hyggelig is a Danish word that describes a feeling of openness, warmth and friendship often between friends. I love that feeling. I wish it were a word in English. It’s so hard to describe emotions, and Hyggelig is a perfect word describing those warm and comfortable feelings you get among friends.
Tartle is Scottish! It’s the act of hesitating while introducing someone because you’ve forgotten his or her name. We've probably done this once are twice…. in general it's just a handy word to have around.
Yoisho is a Japanese word that has no exact meaning. It’s what the Japanese say when they flop onto their seat after a long day. It’s the equivalent of a long exhale or a loud grunt.
Mokita is a New Guinean word describing the truth everyone knows but nobody says. I think it’s similar to the English phrase “there’s an elephant in the room.”
Gheegle is a Filipino word that refers to something that is so ridiculously cute that you want to squeeze it! I would use this word when describing cute kitties, puppies, and children! It’s a funny word that I think the English language should adopt. It's a lot better than describing it, and the word sounds cool by itself!
Age-otori is Japanese and it means to look worse after a haircut. Sort of funny they created this into an actual word.
Finally there’s Pochemuchka! It’s a Russian word that means "a person who asks too many questions." I know a few Pochemuchkas I wish would mind their own business sometimes! Is there an untranslatable word for that?!
Others from commentors:
"hull" is what students say when a teacher gives too much homework, like equivalent to us saying "ugh" and "aish" is sort of like the equivalent of "jeez" you can say it for many reasons (if i remember correctly) and "aigoo" is mainly used by older people. I've heard them use it when they're hot from the weather or when young adults & teenagers do something stupid or something shocking happens, so I think it's similar a slightly dramatic "omg"
SACAR LOS TRAPITOS @chunita:
Sacar los trapitos al sol". And it's veeeeery common. The meaning of it is to say the truth about something to someone and be completely honest with each other without lying.

This website is honestly going down-hill, and it's all I can do to keep it up and running with my blogposts. Hopefully, you all will join as well, because no one has been posting for over a month. I've made this set on one of my tip accounts, but I'll be adding it to another as well. I hope you enjoy and this gives you some ideas for spring! They are put in 3 categories, causal, dressy, and formal.
Quote of the day:
fear of not being good enough.
Spring's coming up! And these are honestly some things I would wear if I could, because this is my dream wardrobe, and nothing but a dream! I've put them into 3 categories:
Formal, dressy, and casual!
These are simply ideas of what you could customize into your own style, and I hope this helps!
This outfit is great for day to day if you like to dress up a little bit more. I really like how the green dress is flowy and says nothing but chic and casual. I think green is a nice, fresh color, and paired with gold is a nice accent for the necklace, but feel free to use silver. The sandals keep it simple with a beachy look and the hat adds the final touch to this dressy, spring piece!
This gorgeous outfit works perfect with a casual day out. The rusty tank top blends together with denim faded shorts and the tan boots, shoulder sling, vintage sunglasses, and flower-crown gives it a perfect boho-chic look.
This says fresh and formal, without being too serious or harsh. The floral colors always trend for spring, and our white jeans add a finishing look of sophistication. The gladiator shoes just paint it up, and the mauve nail polish adds a swipe of color, as well as the bag, adding the cherry on top.

I just wanted to make this blog post to wish you all a Merry Christmas! And may it be filled with eggnog, carols, and yup, presents!
Anyways, I've been seeing a lot of sets on Polyvore with these christmas sweaters.... They may be your ugly christmas sweaters shoved into the back of your closet, but lately, they've been really trending. Polyvore has a huge variety of them in all different patterns and colors, and they're usually paired with shorts, skirts, or pants, which is probably the most appropriate when living in a cold climate xD. Thats pretty much it, leave comment on what you think of these.... are they a new and odd trend? or do you think they're plain old ugly?
Thats it for now, but my next post I hope to talk about Indie and stuff xD anyways....
