Q:What kind of food would you suggest to someone who's trying to put on more muscle weight?
This will just be a general list of effective foods that will apply to anybody, vegetarian or not.
- Lean ground beef
- Chicken breast
- Beans, especially black beans, kidney beans, soy beans and chick peas are protein rich
- Brown rice
- Whole wheat noodles/pasta
- Eggs (Eggs with Omega 3 fatty-acids would be optimum)
- Nuts (Almonds, cashews, flaxseed,
- Milk and/or Yogurt (if dairy is your thing)
- Water: most importantly!
All of these will be optimized if you are indeed working out with some frequency mind you, whether that is cardio or weight lifting. You could take supplements if that’s the route you want to go and you are comfortable putting that type of stuff into your body and are eager for growth. I’ve been weight lifting for 3 years and I’ve never taken any type of supplement/powder/shake.

Ummm…I am so VERY into this right now!
But Black people in period or fantasy settings totally makes the stories unreal.
Also holy shit I love these.
How come I don’t run across this stuff regularly?
Because of racism and the retroactive erasure of POC in Medieval Europe. Pretty much the same reason you almost never see these works of art either unless you’re already looking for them:
bolded because homeboy wit the white gloves looks a lot like me.
Q:Can you share the links/suggestions you gave earlier? I'm honestly looking for some new music myself.
Q:What is your sexual preference?
Ran across a great book while doing research on racism in the environmental movement.
Each person interviewed talks about what they do outdoors and when/how they first became attracted to nature. They also discuss their views on (usually) being the only Black/Brown person in a “wild place” and on what they think keeps other people of color from experiencing the wild outdoors (variety of reasons given… poverty, too many responsibilities at home, not wanting to expose themselves to overt racism in small town America, etc.) .
The author of the book is Dudley Edmondson, a Black nature photographer/writer. So yeah.. the book has amazing photographs but also a great message: “Nature without question is for everyone.”
The purpose of the book is to encourage more Black people to discover nature and also for people to quit talking about what we don’t do. We (can) do everything!
I’m a nature enthusiast myself, and I’d love to not be the only Black person for miles and miles all the time. I cannot remember ever having any racist experiences on any of my little adventures… however, people in the book share some unfortunate stories. But, don’t let a fear of racist events stop you from enjoying nature. The land is a part of our culture! It is only in the last hundred years or so that Black people have become urbanized. Before this, we always had a relationship with nature. It’s time to reconnect!
If I can get my hands on a copy, this will definitely be my next read.
Q:Okay I'm noisy because I follow both of yall. What are you giving more of?
Gymnosomata, commonly known as Sea Angels. An apt name- the sea angels are the ethereal, translucent, fluttering angels of the sea.
In hard scientific terms, they’re small swimming sea slugs, but we’ll pass over that for now and just admire how delicately beautiful these wonderful creatures are.
But we who are on the threshold of a new age should remember that the giant strides in technology which our grandfathers experienced were just as staggering in their day: the railways, electricity, telegraphy, the first car, the first aeroplane. We ourselves heard music in the air for the first time; we see colour TV; we saw the first launching of space-ships and we get news and pictures from satellites that revolve around the Earth. Our children’s children will go on interstellar journeys and carry out cosmic research at technical faculties in the universe.
