Can you believe that the end of summer is ALREADY HERE? Holy smokes, people. That is applicable in almost a literal sense because part of Northern California has been in flames. It is incredibly unfortunate to see part of our proximate home being decimated, wildlife being eradicated off the face of the Earth, and so … More My Skincare Journey: Facial Hair, Sun Damage, Aging Prevention, and Colorism in the Asian Community
Last week, I discussed several conditions and circumstances where integrating more fiber would actually detriment oneself more than benefit, despite fiber’s functionality and role in physiological wellbeing. Some people cannot tolerate as much fiber for a certain period of time due to intestinal disorders that forbid otherwise or if they need to ingest a higher … More A High Fiber Vegan Diet: How? Why? When? What About Supplemental Fiber?
Amongst the vegan community, it is an absolute headache to constantly be bombarded with questions about protein, zinc, calcium, vitamin B12, iron, and organoleptic enjoyment of food in a vegan diet.

Back with another recap once again, baby! It’s only the third day, and I pretty much was spoiled with more food in one sitting than I used to eat in a week prior to my vegan days.

Ciao, blog family! Fun fact: ciao is how people say hello in Vietnamese!
