Recipe! Jackfruit Adobo!

Before I get started, I would like to say that this adobo recipe is directly inspired from Panlasang Pinoy’s Chicken Adobo recipe! I made very few changes, the major one being that I veganized his recipe. I don’t want to take credit, rather show you the ways I adjusted the recipe for jackfruit. I’ve also […]

Restaurant Review! Bright Star Thai Vegan in Rancho Cucamonga!

A little while ago, Miyoko’s Kitchen contacted me to to create a couple recipes with their vegan cheese, and I envisioned a healthy(ish), colorful meatball sub!

Tacos! Tacos! Tacos!

Figuring out what to eat for dinner can be so, so hard, especially when you are deciding amongst more than just yourself!

I am terrible at eating breakfast in the morning. I hate waking up to an alarm, I try to get ready for wherever I need to be in the least amount of time possible, and I skip breakfast. This of course leads me to obsess over lunch, and build grocery lists in my head all […]

I Bought A Three Day Juice Cleanse in a Moment of Desperation (and Curiosity)

I bought a three day, Pressed Juicery cleanse in January, and I absolutely loved it. I loved having all those juices, everyday. I didn’t cleanse per se, but I did drink about three to four green juices a day for the course of about five days! AND IT WAS AWESOME. I had just been pretty […]

It’s day 20 of my run streak, and I have about one month until LA Marathon. I just finished up peak week of my training with a 2o mile run two days ago, on Sunday. Now I begin my taper! I ran 18 miles the week before, which makes this most amount of mileage I’ve […]

(Read Part One here!) We made it to San Antonio! We had a place to stay, restaurants to check out, a race to run, and the burden of moving out of our apartment off our shoulders! Getting there was stressful for both of us and emotions were running high. We had gotten into an argument […]

Pickle Juice Shots, Minus the Whiskey

The runner and pickle juice – it’s a thing! The first time I heard about pickle juice shots, a friend was running NYC Marathon with little training. Though, little training for him is my idea of tough training – he got second place in a half marathon recently and is a Boston Qualifier. It just […]

Smokey Sweet Potato Boat Recipe!

Last fall, I was asked by Miyoko’s Creamery to develop a healthy recipe using their vegan cheese product! Mike had told me about the nutritional benefits of sweet potatoes, especially important for runners, and so I made this recipe with him as my muse. He also gets photography credit! I was trying to come up […]

Vegan Nutrition on a Budget

When I was training for my first half marathon a little over a year ago, I was broke and lost about how to feed myself while doing long runs. I needed to get the most bang for my buck, and as someone who had spent their adulthood scared of carbs, I was confused. Carbs or […]
