Morning Sunshine Chia Bowl

Ask anyone I work with and they will tell you I basically eat the same breakfast at work every day. It’s my chia seed breakfast pudding in a Tupperware. This sunshine bowl ups the ante a bit with added fruit, but it’s still a super easy breakfast to make and it contains 12g of protein…

Savoury Baked Tofu

This is a super quick and easy recipe to make. It will up the ante on your tofu game – I promise you. Some might describe this tofu to have an “umami” flavour. What I found great about this recipe was that it took no time at all and was well worth it in the…

Cozy Plant-Based Daal

It was my mum who initially introduced this recipe to me. Back when I was living at home it would be the dish I’d crave the most. Something about a good curry just makes the world go round and my tummy grumbly. This is super simple to make and literally a last minute pantry dinner….

Instead of using regular oil or butter, I’ve chosen to use coconut oil instead. After a few trials, I’ve come to realize the coconut oil actually makes it more crunchy…

Distance: 8 km (5 miles) Elevation Gain: 476 m (1,560 ft) Time: 3-3.5 Hours (roundtrip) Before I left for Maui, I spent a lot of time figuring out which day hike I wanted to do. What’s great about Maui is that the list is endless. Whether you decide to explore the east coast (Hana) or the…

Song in Headphones: Genghis Khan (I took dance breaks while writing this) If you find you’re in a rush some mornings, grab one of these on the way to work/school with an apple — you’re set till lunch! I sometimes eat one before a run to keep me going, and they are especially great for hiking….
