Chickpea & Tofu Coconut Thai Curry: Vegan Cyborg Recipe

Tonight, we head to the Far East for a tasty curry meal from Thailand. Well, almost. To start, steam two cups of cauliflower, a handful of chopped carrots and a few sliced Japanese sweet potatoes. After they became soft, toss in a wok with fresh onions, half a cup of chickpeas, and a few splashes of water. Next, add “organic extra firm” tofu chunks and mix together. Pour in the Coconut Thai Curry and let simmer down like Bob Marley for 15 minutes. Serve over brown rice or your favorite Asian noodle and enjoy!

No meat, No problem! Eat More Beans

No meat, No problem! Whether running, hiking, arm wrestling, boxing, lifting etc, fuel the body with plant proteins such as beans and quinoa and complex carbs like collards, sweet potatoes, and brown rice, and it will excel with greatness.

The Ethiopian Experience: Trekking the Highlands of Lalibela

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Selam, and welcome to “the origin,” the African nation that has never been colonized by Europeans. Lookup “The Battle of Adwa” where King Menelik II defeated the Italians in an epic sequence of historical consequence. Finally, after years of research, readings, teachings, and listening to roots reggae rhythms epitomizing The Promised Land, I took the requisite steps needed for a transformative Ethiopian experience as part of my Annual Nomadic Journey in Addis Ababa and Lalibela.

I ventured to Ethiopia for its strength, Abyssinian culture, veggie injera meals, traditional Eskista shoulder dance up close, and to breathe with deep spirit from the highlands of Lalibela. I began the excursion upon landing into Addis Ababa, the capital and largest city of Ethiopia. I enjoyed many of the historical sites, including the National Museum of Ethiopia, Ethiopian National Theatre, Ethnological Museum, the Red Terror Martyr’s Museum, and Menelik Palace in the Entoto Hills. The Historic Kidist Selassie Cathedral is the highest-ranking Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church in the city. Sarcastically, I was also looking for freedom fighting singer Teddy Afro, the Bob Marley of Ethiopia. Listen to any of his classics, and you will become an instant devotee. Trust me!

Fit Fathers 6th Annual Nomadic Journey: Kenya’s Maasai Mara & the Balance of Nature

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Jambo! It’s the Swahili greeting I heard and repeated regularly throughout my 2-week journey in the Motherland to experience the beauty of nature in its purest and most divine form. The 6th Nomadic Journey brought me to the lands of Africa to spend time with the wild in their natural habitat within the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Southwest Kenya. These journeys are where I venture solo like a rover to rediscover life, disconnect from addictive American culture, and explore deeper consciousness and spiritual freedom.

aspirations. I began the long excursion from Washington, DC, and traveled on United Airlines to Frankfurt and then Lufthansa to Nairobi. As a frequent traveler, I always fly with the same airline alliance to earn miles, upgrades, respectable customer services, etc. After traveling almost 3-million miles with the Star Alliance, I’ve received exceptional treatment. Arrival to Nairobi took place on Jamhuri Day, which is a national holiday celebrated on December 12th to commemorate Kenya’s independence. As you can imagine, people were rejoicing across the country.

Healthy Culinary Experiences in Africa

Here are some of the amazing and traditional vegan foods we enjoyed in Kenya, Egypt and Ethiopia during the 6th Annual Nomadic Journey. Keep in mind that the staple food for mostly every indigenous culture is a legume (bean) or grain.

Our favorite culinary experiences included the Ethiopian veggie injera dish with lentils and cabbage and Egypt’s Koshari national dish which was divine. Koshari is a super meal made from macaroni noodles, lentils, rice, chickpeas and spiced tomato sauce. In Nairobi, Kenya make sure to pay a visit to the LMS Adventist Guest House for their magnificent $2.70 all vegan medley. [Read more…]

Welcome to the “Vegan Cyborg” Transformation

Vegan Power Story

My name is Kimatni D Rawlins and I’ve been a vegan since 2011. I Lost 50 lbs after the transformation and at age 44 I still have the majority of my speed and strength from my Georgia Tech Football running back days. I founded both Fit Fathers and Vegan Pro and run marathons, half marathons, urbanathlons, box, strength train, swim, mountain bike, cycle, hike, climb and everything else.

I’m free of any supplementation, only drink water, coconut water, and herbal decaf tea, eat 5 to 7 servings of fruits and veggies a day, do not cook with oils, and shy from processed vegan foods.

I am both alcohol free and smoke free and love reggae. I’ve flown 2.2 million miles globally to explore the diversity of the world and its rich plant-based foods and indigenous peoples. As I continue to evolve myself into a Vegan Cyborg only pure foods, thoughts and actions can enter my realm. Please join me if you’re looking for life everlasting change.

Life is for the living so please ascertain to eat clean, stay active and only feed your mind with pure, positive and enlightened thoughts that lead to purity and prosperity. The body is a temple so treat it as one.
