Eggplant Parm

Don’t let this penis shape vegetable fool you, Eggplant is seriously underrated. A lot of people who eat a plant-based diet, are all about Portobello mushrooms, for the similar texture to meat. I think Eggplant has that same texture, and usually, cheaper at the grocery store. This dish is a go-to for me. We have … Continue reading Eggplant Parm

This dish is a classic Italian recipe. Cavatelli is a type of eggless pasta, that is filled with Ricotta Cheese. The great thing about this pasta it is a great source of Protein.

Vegan Mashed Potatoes

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and what would it be without mashed potatoes? My whole life my mother would make homemade mashed potatoes with our meals. We never had packaged potatoes. My mother can whip up a good and creamy mashed potatoes. This is surprising because my mother can’t cook anything else except for cheesecake. My … Continue reading Vegan Mashed Potatoes


Sleep, something most people do not get enough of. What happens when we consistently lose hours of sleep? We go into sleep debt. Credit card and student loan debt are enough. Throughout the day our bodies produce Adenosine and when we don’t get enough sleep it stays in our bodies. This causes us to feel … Continue reading #SleepDebt

Tasty Fruit Salad

Salad can taste good. James Beard once said, “too many simple green salads suffer from a lack of imagination.” I don’t know who James Beard, I just googled salads quotes and this one stood out to me. I see what James is saying; salads can lack some culinary creativity. Salad haters are right who wants … Continue reading Tasty Fruit Salad


All right, it’s time to share a story. A couple of years ago I went to my doctors for my annual physical. My P.A. ordered the standard blood panel. After getting the test done, I was called in. My P.A. went over the results with me. She explained to me that my Ac1 (blood sugar) … Continue reading Pre-Diabetes

Meatless Stuffed Peppers

It took me a while to get used to the idea of cooking with mock meats. I always thought they were unhealthy. I feel if you are going towards a plant-based diet that it should be all plants, not faux meat. I remember grocery shopping and seeing all the options, and the pictures on the … Continue reading Meatless Stuffed Peppers

WTF is Gluten?

One of the biggest misconceptions in health is gluten. I don’t know where this anti-gluten craze came from. Was it when Miley Cyrus started to talk about her gluten-free diet that the trend began? Maybe, it was when Cheerios unveiled they were going gluten-free as well? Either way, it has taken on a life of … Continue reading WTF is Gluten?

Summer Smoothie

Memorial Day is a few days away, which means it’s summer time! Now, my appetite in the summer is non-existent. It’s so hot sometimes I don’t feel like eating anything but ice cream and eating ice cream every day is not healthy, even if the ice cream is vegan. So in the summer time I … Continue reading Summer Smoothie

Why You Need to do a Digital Detox This Year

I am writing this post 3,000 feet in the air. Isn’t technology great? We can work on a blog post while flying. I wanted to get this post out sooner, but life isn’t perfect, so here it is. Towards the end of 2018, I felt like I was going backwards with my mental health. It took me a good 2 years to come to terms with my anxiety. I spent a lot of time and energy on not letting it derail my life. I felt an improvement. Then I found myself in a job situation that was not ideal. I tried to make it work. I thought if I tried harder than job would get better. It never did. My mental health took a dive. The first month in I was having a panic attack almost every day. I kept telling myself I need to get a grip, pull myself together. One technique that always made … Continue reading Why You Need to do a Digital Detox This Year
