Diet Update: What I Ate on My Last Day of Classes as a First Year in Food Science

Happy Saturday evening, everybody! I hope you’re all well. This is a different kind of post, since I will be posting one of my first official “photo food diary” entries!

Eggplant Pad Thai (healthy + vegan..with a Paleo option!)

While I adore my spicy eggplant and tofu satay, curry has always been my number one go-to order at any Thai restaurant. Until NOW. Oh Pad Thai–it just screams comfort food. Spicy, sweet, sticky, tangy, and savory comfort food. Before my health journey, I loved to inhale Pad Thai without any utensils!

Dorm-Friendly Pink Vegetable Curry (vegan + gluten free)

You know red, green, yellow, orange, brown, and white in very rare cases. But pink?! Is that even possible?! Why in my kitchen, yes it is. The Pink Panther would be quite impressed.

This year, it just so … More Tomato Vegetable Stew (healthy, vegan, gluten free, oil free + high protein)

Tuesday Thoughts: AspireAssist is Assisted Bulimia…Apparently

Cauliflower-Based Peanut Curry (vegan + gluten free)

How would you like to eat a steaming, spicy hot bowl of peanut butter for breakfast? YES PLEASE. Okay, let me tell you something that I did not mention on the blog just yet, but I have mentioned in my comments on other blogs: I actually had to abstain from peanut butter for a week.
