Snickers are the only chocolate-bars I kinda miss, but I think these are an adequate substitute. And there’s only 4 ingredients in them!
for about 10-12 truffles you’ll need roughly
1/2 cup dates
3/4 roasted, unsalted peanuts
a pinch of salt
2-3oz dark chocolate
Blend the dates and about half of the peanuts and the salt in a food processor until you have a sticky mass. Knead in the rest of the peanuts and form little balls. Melt the chocolate (I did that in the microwave), roll your balls in the chocolate and let it dry.
I make these too, but I use milk chocolate or even white chocolate (yes, dark chocolate is healthier, but a small amount is fine. remember moderation is key) you can try yogurt too and freeze it. try adding almonds, cashews, granola, fruits, anything! :) experiment! even protein powder, and you can blend some strawberries with the protein powder with almonds :)
You don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It doesn’t matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance — you don’t have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go.
When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty. The world teaches you that the way you exist in it is disgusting — you watch boys cringe backward in your dorm room when you talk about your period, blue water pretending to be blood in a maxi pad commercial. It is little things, and it is constant. In a food court in a mall, after you go to the gynecologist for the first time, you and your friend talk about how much it hurts, and over her shoulder you watch two boys your age turn to look at you and wrinkle their noses: the reality of your life is impolite to talk about. The world says that you don’t have a right to the space you occupy, any place with men in it is not yours, you and your body exist only as far as what men want to do with it. At fifteen, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met somehow believe you should bend your body to their will. At almost thirty, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met still somehow believe you should bend your body to their will. They are children. They are children.
“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”
- Bruce Lee
Bruce is widely beloved now, but remember, folks, that this was the man whom Hollywood considered incapable of carrying a “leading man” role, much to his frustration. The Kung Fu television series was stolen from him and recast with a white man as lead, and Bruce was forced to wear a mask and act as a servant in The Green Hornet. Lee was only able to do his own thing by producing movies in China. Even today, I don’t think Bruce would be given a chance in Hollywood as leading man, because I still don’t really see East Asian leading men on TV or at the theater.
Owls confirmed to be the creepiest birds ever. LOOK AT THE FUCKING THINGS. If you fail to notice the one on the left fucking SWALLOWING a rat, then you have the dude singing some satanic chant or something next to him, and then you have those two other fucking psychos synchronized to make you feel creeped the fuck out with their soulless dance of FUCKING DOOM.
I really am tempted to reblog this every time it’s on my dash. That description is one of the best things on the internet.
I always reblog this when it’s on my dash..
That paragraph is just brilliant. Always reblog this xD
Settlers make fun of the Palestinian woman after the occupation authorities force her out of her home in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem.
“The thing that bothers me most about this kind of behaviour is that these people had ancestors who were also forced out of their homes and put into a ghetto with a wall around it. Why the fuck don’t humans learn from their history instead of recycling such shitty behaviours?”
