See what I did there? Like Piña colada. We had a slew of fresh pineapples this past week, so I have been experimenting with smoothie creations. In this recipe, the already blissful blend of pineapple and coconut is made even better with the addition of banana and spirulina, that glorious sea algae full of iron, b12 and protein. It’s so delish, it’s worth using up a bit of our solar power first thing in the morning to run the Vitamix, and I wont judge you if you add a splash of rum…just sayin’! Continue reading
If you have been following along with my posts for the last few weeks, then what I am about to tell you may be old news. But if not, here is a bite sized crash course: I wrote a screenplay, and currently money is being raised via Kickstarter to turn it into a film! It is fully cast, and a production team is fully assembled. We are 50 percent funded, with 9 days left in out campaign! Continue reading
I know bloggers are supposed to hoard their readers like greedy grubby trolls. DON’T LEAVE MY PAGE, YOU SHALL NOT PASS, I’M IMPORTANT. But I fell in love with another vegan blog today, and I just need to direct you over to ThugKitchen. It actually isn’t that new, but sometimes my head is stuck really far up my ass and I don’t hear about other people’s cool shit because I am trying so hard to make my own. I am sharing some of ThugKitchen’s photos. So note, all of the below amazing images are from my new fav Interspot, ThugKitchen.com. Just like SexyTofu and iEatGrass, ThugKitchen is proof vegans are funny sometimes. It’s not all about saving the animals and snorting kale (although that’s cool too).
Seriously. I can’t even.
My boyfriend’s (vegan) brother sent this my way, and I thought I would share it with you. ALSO maybe my very omnivorous boyfriend should rough up his brother for suggesting “a carni cock just won’t do.”
This video is way crazy/vulgar/maybe amazing/maybe awful? What I like about it is that the dude, someone reppin DoucheChillz.com, is being up in your face with his message. No beating around the (vegan) bush here. Thoughts? Does stuff like this make veganism look better or worse? Does it matter how you get people to go vegan as long as they do it?
Also, I am sorry again for being so MIA. There is a reason, and the reason is that I have been working on a huge creative project: I have been writing a screenplay! And that screen play is being turned into a movie. Well, it’s being turned into a movie with your help! Along with an extremely talented group of directors, producers, cinematographers, cast and crew, we are launching a Kickstarter campaign this week.
If you like coming to SexyTofu, then you will dig the movie we’re making, with a script by yours truly. It’s a dark comedy called “Courtesy Flush,” which takes place in Hawaii. It’s a story of love, murder, and madness, and full of the fun, sexy, bizarre stuff you find here on ST. SO…keep an eye out for my Kickstarter campaign, which I will be pushing all up in your face once it has launched. So forgive me.
Oh, and you can also read what I have been up to on xoJane.com!
When you find yourself hit with a bad case of feelings, “Friend” can be the ultimate F word. We have seen a million cheesy rom-coms that end with previously platonic bffs falling in love, and you know it just doesn’t happen that way. The most believable part of When Harry Met Sally is when Meg Ryan fakes an orgasm in the diner.
In real life, we all know what happens when a friend catches feelings for another friend: they get caught in the infamous “friend zone,” a topic over-done in the rom-com department in 2011 alone. So on the day in summer of 2011 that I found myself randomly holding hands with my best dude at an Alexander McQueen exhibit, my mind imploded with questions… This is just a friendly hand-hold, right? I mean, friends hold hands. And cuddle. When did he start smelling so good?
P and I had been friends for just shy of 10 years, and nothing had ever happened between us. Nothing had even come close to happening between us. I spent most of our youth making out with various members of his garage band, and once at a party I played bouncer outside a dark bedroom as he fooled around with my friend inside. I’m STILL a believer in platonic male/female friendships, and while sure, I thought he was an attractive person, I was more interested in helping him get handies from my girlfriends than giving him one myself. He was sort of like my good looking older brother…
Which is why it was bizarre when I suddenly found myself wanting to remove his clothes with my teeth.
It’s Friday! That means it’s time for my Lusty Vegan column on iEatGrass.com.
Communication is a bitch. It’s absurd how in a world where we’re all so connected 24/7, we can simultaneously be utturly disconnected to each other. But trust and communication are the pillars to a healthy relationship. Yeah, love and chemistry and the fact that you both like Apatow comedies and Chinese food are all important, but without trust and communication, everything will fall to shit. If your communication is bad, then your relationship is doomed. DUN DUN DUN. Just kidding. Like everything else, you can work on improving communication, but it’s hard, and you have to really commit. Here are a few helpful suggestions/exercises for those who are shoddy communicators, and/or are partnered up with someone who has trouble fessing.
Big note: there is a difference between being quiet and being unable to communicate properly. Continue reading

So in fitness fanatic news, I have been doing more rock climbing recently. There is a climbing gym near me that has a pretty cool layout, including a kid-free zone for adults to boulder about without any little monkey distraction. Don’t get me wrong, I love kids. But watching them scale a wall that I can’t get up just makes me feel bad about myself.
Climbing is an efficient upper body and core workout, whether or not you’re in a harness or just bouldering (climbing without an attached rope, usually on shorter walls and over a padded mat, aka a crash pad). Continue reading

Now that the official holiday of lovechocolate is over, maybe many of you are feeling ill from ransacking the 75 percent off candy sale at Duane Reade. No shame! I know it’s a good day if I’m eating chocolate before noon. I love a good, plain, bitter dark chocolate bar—90 percent cacao is my favorite. But I shook it up recently and tried a couple of bags of Nicobella Organics Munch.
Nicobella—fair trade and organic! Aw yeah!–is better known for their truffles, but I am pretty into their chocolate and nut mixes, aka Munch, because they give me a solid dose of protein, so I can eat an entire bag without feeling like I lost all of my self control. Bonus: they are relatively low in calories, as far as sweets go. They DO have a good amount of fat though. But fat is good. Let’s all embrace fat. Continue reading
Sorry I have been MIA! I have been visiting my family in Hawaii and neglecting this here blog. (Excuses for neglecting blog pre-trip include lots of work, breaking up and unbreaking up and rebreaking up with man friend, lots of freelance work, packing…uhm..eating?)
On the trip, I did tons of eating (no cooking…sorry ma!), hiking, swimming, and camping. It was a very active vacation, which I like, because it makes me feel less guilty about all of the coconut cream I ate. On the trip, I explored a 35 foot cave with an 8 foot lava-rock vagina inside (more on this to come in a later post…), went kayaking, and lazed about. Speaking of lazy, instead of an entire post, here are some photos I took on the trip… Continue reading
