Four-Ingredient Vegan French Toast (inspired by Hot Body Year Round)

Your new favorite breakfast…..with just four ingredients! My childhood self could demolish multiple plates of two-foot long stacks of crispy and fluffy French toast! I always loved mine to be topped with bananas, blueberries, strawberries, powdered sugar, whipped cream, and maple syrup! However, French toast is also demonized as one of the most fattening dishes … More Four-Ingredient Vegan French Toast (inspired by Hot Body Year Round)

Day 1 in Vietnam: Reuniting With Family After Ten Years

Greetings, peeps! I’m already settled back home, reset my inner body clock, and adapted to my L.A. ways of living!

Golden Oatmeal (healthy, vegan, gluten free + anti-inflammatory)

Here’s a thoughtful question for you: would you ever consider consuming an entire bowl of nature’s gold? Thing is, gold is a naturally-occurring element on this planet, so in literal terms, I would most certainly pass on that offer. However, if someone were to present me with peanut butter or spaghetti squash as nature’s gold, I’d totally … More Golden Oatmeal (healthy, vegan, gluten free + anti-inflammatory)

Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal (healthy, vegan + gluten free)

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)
