My Favorite Overnight Oats

A simple bowl of overnight oats topped with bananas, sweet potatoes, almond butter, and my special mix of crunchy goodness. Overnight oats recently gained a lot of speed, and for good reason. It’s simple, it’s healthy, and it’s super versatile – the trifecta for my favorite kinds of foods. One qualm that I have aboutRead more

Sweet Potato Smoothie

This sweet potato and banana smoothie is not only scrumptious, nutritious and satisfying, but also fits the guidelines for vegan, gluten free, whole 30 and paleo. I’ve never been into dieting or following dieting trends/guidelines because I don’t have enough will power to restrict my food intake. I kind of love food too much, especiallyRead more

Oatmeal with Cardamom Roasted Apples

  Apples tossed in cardamom and maple syrup are roasted until tender and sweet, and served with a hearty bowl of oatmeal. This scrumptious, comforting, and nutritious dish makes waking up on a cold day a little easier. Confession time. Before this post, I totally thought cardamom was spelled with a “U” instead of anRead more

Purple Cauliflower & Potato Soup

This creamy and silky soup is satisfying, healthy, and made extra vibrant and beautiful with purple cauliflower and potato. This past weekend, I met up with a couple of old friends, and we had such a great time. We ate too much, slept too little, laughed endlessly, and caused a minor scene wherever we went. GettingRead more

Pineapple Grapefruit Smoothie Bowl

A refreshing blend of frozen pineapples and grapefruit juice topped with an assortment of fruits, nuts and seeds. I absolutely love everything that Thanksgiving brings- eating a true abundance of great food, spending time with people you love, and taking time to realize (and verbalize) how much we have to be grateful for (something we allRead more

Kabocha Squash Porridge (Hobakjuk) + Rice Dumplings

Hobakjuk is a Korean porridge traditionally made with steamed squash and some form of glutinous rice (either soaked rice or rice flour). Here’s your Korean lesson for today from someone with very questionable Korean languageRead more

Ube Nice Cream Bowl

Using ube (purple sweet potato) as a base for this nice cream bowl proves to be delicious, vibrant, and extremely nutritious! What the heck is an ube? It’s pronounced OO-BAE, and it’s a purple sweet potato commonly found in Filipino cuisine, usually in dessert. I’ve read that people liken the flavor to hazelnut/vanilla/chocolate. I’m not really sure aboutRead more

Kiwi & Berry Quinoa Parfait

Lightly sweetened quinoa layered between a perfectly tart kiwi smoothie and a refreshingly sweet berry smoothie.  The inspiration of this dish came from buying a Costco box of golden kiwis on a whim. They were on sale – what was I supposed to do, just walk passed them? Kiwis are great for so many reasons,Read more

Avocado Smoothie Bowl

Avocado Smoothie Bowl

I eat breakfast every single day! I just don’t understand how people can leave the house without eating something. I’m pretty sure both my body and brain would just shut down, and I would stop functioning like a normal human being. Not only is breakfast an absolute necessity for me, but it is my number one choiceRead more

Mango coconut popsicles

Mango Coconut Popsicles

Starting anything is always hard. Why do you think everyone needs it to be January 1st to start anything – a new diet/fitness plan, new financial way of living, new outlook on life…? It’s because it’s hard! It’s scary to start something because that means you have to commit to something; you think about allRead more
