Hello friends! I have made my most loved (by me) version of poke bowl! I love eating this more, compared to sushi because nothing is falling out of it, LOL. And now I want to share how I would make poke bowls. Feel free to use or replace any ingredients with others that you'd like. Featured recipes: Eel (Black) Sauce: Click here Yum Yum (White) Sauce: Click here For the yum yum sauce, I replace mayonaise with Vegenaise and butter with coconut oil. Vegan Crab Meat: Click here I only used hearts of palm and Vegenaise in this recipe. Tip, if you're not adding all the other ingredients and are just using hearts of palm and the "mayo," you may want to lower the amount of mayo you use :) Recipe: I don't use…

As most of you know, I am on a mission to create vegan versions of all my favorite Asian/Hmong recipes. I believe that any recipe out there can be created without using animal products and it will still tastes great. Today I will be sharing with you one of my favorite recipes - curry! Whether it's in noodle soup form or just plain ol' curry with rice, I love the taste of curry. I will also include my video form of this recipe below (psst, I am speaking in Hmong - lol) Let's jump right into the recipe. I went to my nearest local Asian market but couldn't find a few items for the recipe - may be because it's not in season. Since I don't live with any older…

Spring Rolls with Teriyaki Tofu

Spring Rolls with Teriyaki Tofu

Nutrition, Recipes
Hello all! I just recently came up with a recipe for spring rolls (veganized) but with a little twist. Since spring rolls usually have a very plain taste to it (beside the dipping sauce) I decided to add some taste because I am using tofu - and tofu just kinda absorbs anything, any flavor, that it is cooked in - which in this case is teriyaki sauce. I've always love spring rolls, I think they're so easy to make! We've always used meat - but today we are going to create these with no animals harmed in the process :D I believe there is always a way to make your favorite food in a vegan version. And I have also been working on a project for a Vegan (Asian) Cookbook/Blog.…

Pan-fried FRIES

Pan-fried FRIES

Nutrition, Recipes
Yes. You saw that right! FRIES!   This recipe is easy, simple, and less than an hour. It probably took about 45 mins to finish the whole process. Keep in mind that my recipes are very minimal. The reason is because one, I'm not a great cook; two, I rather more time focused on my business/fitness. My meals have to be sustainable to me and fit my lifestyle. Sustainability is such a significant word. Every thing you do, if you want to make it part of your normal routine - it has to be sustainable. The reason some people can't stay on top of their exercise or diet is because they are doing sh*t that aren't sustainable. Maybe they're eating 500 calories and then their mind gives up, they end…

WHY I’m going VEGAN

WHY I’m going VEGAN

Motivation, Nutrition
If you haven't already seen my previous post, I have pledge to go VEGAN. What is Vegan? The Google definition of Vegan is : a person who does not eat or use animal products; using or containing no animal products. That means: No animal flesh of any sort: beef, lamb, chicken, salmon, etc. No clothes made from animals: leather, fur, etc. No products that were tested on animals: makeup, lotion, creams, toothpaste, etc. I did a 14-Day Vegan Experience last month. When I finished, I did make the choice to be a vegetarian. I've always considered myself an animal lover. I love zoos, aquarium, wherever there's animals, I loved going! My Love for Animals Growing up, my parents raised chickens, ducks, sometimes pigeons. I always helped my parents feed the chickens and…

What is up everyone? I have been MIA for a little while with contents because if you saw my last post, you would know that... I AM GOING VEGAN! Just earlier this week, something triggered me to go vegan. I did a "14-Day Vegan Experience" just last month which I found that it was very likable for my taste and food choices. I will post a blog about my 2 week experience soon and my reasons for going vegan. For now, I would like to share with you a recipe I made today. I usually don't cook any "fancy" foods - as I like to call them - because I find that it's just too time-consuming for me and not sustainable for what I want to focus on - which…
