Travel Guide: Hong Kong

Hong Kong Verdict: Basically we want to live there, aside from the fact that I think apartments are the size of a shoebox for $20,000 a month. But seriously this city rocks and I cannot wait to go back to eat, shop and explore more. Where we stayed: The Pottinger - Central (border of Soho). This [...]

Wild King Salmon with Roasted Cauliflower & Carrot Vegan Mac N’ Cheese and Sauteed Zucchini​

OK, I actually outdid myself here. This was something I randomly dreamed up in my head over the weekend, probably drawing inspiration from a few sources around the interwebs (although a quick google search never provided any actual recipes for this). I had really been craving mac n' cheese and wanted to make a vegan alternative [...]

Homemade Miso Noodle Soup with Wild Shrimp, Bok Choy, Heirloom Carrots

I didn't follow a real recipe for this but this one from Food Network is fairly similar and what I like [...]

Wild King Salmon Bowl with Quinoa, Sweet Potato, and a Vegan Kale Caesar

You all know how much I adore my local fish shop Wabash Seafood Company, one because they have this sustainability mission statement and because their product is just so dang good you can't mess it up! This meal is the epitome of how I think I want to eat going forward, although this is a [...]

Travel Guide: Koh Samui, Thailand

Koh Samui, Thailand Verdict: Overall I don't think I would recommend it. I hate to say that because we had a gorgeous villa with a private pool overlooking the ocean but the beauty sort of started and ended there. For me, there are just so many other gorgeous beaches around the world to check out that [...]

The Food Dilemma – Vegan vs Paleo | Your Body vs Environmental​ Consciousness

I've always considered myself a healthful eater, but a food lover at heart. Growing up my parents exposed us to many flavors, many types of foods, and instilled a love for eating. But they also taught us moderation. Understanding when to treat yourself, and when to practice a little restraint, and they did it so [...]
