Even before my vegan lifestyle, I actually have always adored the taste of fake meat. Some people despise it, because the texture is wonky and is either too different from real meat, or too resemblant of it. There’s something about the slightly chewy and hearty texture of seitan and any other soy-based mock meats that … More Basic Homemade Seitan (with flavor ideas!)
These cinnamon rolls just might be some of the best desserts I have made of all time. Seriously. ALL. TIME. I don’t know about you, but I have always been a fan of Cinnabon, as well as other cinnamon rolls from Corner Bakery Cafe, Starbucks, and even supermarkets that whip up some mean treats! As … More Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls (healthy + vegan)
A year ago, I published a whole list of questions for readers to answer in the comments! They are all dedicated to food, aka one of my most loved life subjects. I’d thought I’d throw it back a year ago and tackle them all–unaltered, unedited, the exact same as in the post–now for some fun … More Answering My Old Foodie Questions

In summation, there’s so much wonderful food, memories, and places that are really … More Day 7 in Vietnam: Going to the Gym Again + The Best Bread
Do you recall my little sister’s baked oatmeal recipe? Isn’t it absolutely fantastic? I can say that every member of my family can cook quite well, and even though my dad doesn’t cook that much anymore, he made the BEST breakfast croissant sandwiches (toasted croissant + eggs + soy sauce + butter = BAM!). I … More Baked Oatmeal: Three Ways!
My Food Science culinary course during the spring quarter of this year actually instructed us to make eggplant lasagna every single week for our labs! Yes, we learned how to use eggplant as pasta noodles and coat it in heaps of sauce and flavor! How amazing does that sound? That being said, the eggplant lasagna … More Single-Serving Eggplant Lasagna (healthy, vegan, gluten free + Paleo)
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! This sort of serves as a visual update on how I’ve been doing with my diet, how I’ve been feeling eating this way, and how … More Diet Update: What I Ate on My Last Day of Classes as a First Year in Food Science
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! Unfortunately, Pad Thai is most … More Eggplant Pad Thai (healthy + vegan..with a Paleo option!)
When we throw out the term “breakfast food”, pancakes, waffles, eggs and bacon, coffee, and toast with butter are the first meals that come to mind. However, the most common breakfast foods that I relished as a child were pastries: croissants, muffins, bagels, scones, donuts, and cinnamon rolls, the latter being one of my absolute … More Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal (healthy, vegan + gluten free)

The second definition suggests that the word also means “strongly motivated (as by ambition)” or “not rich or fertile”. With this in mind, why do … More Hungry on a Vegan Diet?
