Mini Road Trip: San Francisco to LA

If you’ve lived in California, chances are you’ve made the trek between San Francisco and Los Angeles.  It’s a quick plane ride, but taking to the road provides a fun adventure whether the commute is for business or pleasure. This stretch of the sunshine state is no epic road trip, but there is a lot of fun to be had in its 380 miles.  There are three main highways from which to choose.  For the no-nonsense commuter who is going for record time, Interstate 5 is the ticket.  A warning,Read More

College is a place where rules don’t apply and parents have no say. It is a place where an individual can finally be themselves and become a “real” adult. However, there a few preconceived notions about college that just don’t fly in the real world. Wearing Pajamas to class When you emerge from high school and realize you’ll never have to wear a collard shirt or itchy plaid skirt ever again, you get a tad bit excited. Getting to finally pick out your wardrobe every day is no small reward,Read More

The Reality of Dieting

“Dieting” has become one of the biggest trends in America today. People want to look and feel like the people they see in magazines and television. There are a plethora of commercials encouraging quick diets and fat cutting pills, but dieting doesn’t work for everyone. Some of us dieters need a reality check! Cutting a Few Things Out The first step to dieting is eliminating certain foods from your diet. This is easier said then done. It’s very ideal to say you’re going to cut out sweets, maybe soda, andRead More

Candied Macadamia Nut & Almond Granola

In my opinion, granola is a great staple to always have on hand. It’s a quick and simple breakfast option paired with yogurt or milk, a perfect snack for when you are on the go, and it also makes for a delicious topping for ice cream or frozen yogurt. The prices I have seen for granola, especially gourmet granola, are a little outrageous. Once you realize how easy it is to make you will never want to buy store-bought granola again. Another great advantage of homemade granola is less sugar.Read More

OC Night Market Review

A couple weekends ago, the famous 626 Night Market launched their first branch of night market to the OC Fair Grounds. As for those who have not been to the 626 Night Market, this event usually is ran for one weekend in each month of the summer with a variety of foods, and I mean a lot of variety, a few retail vendors, and multiple performances. When it comes down to finding an appetite, there is without a doubt something worth trying here. Most of the food that is offeredRead More

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread (Gluten Free)

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread (Gluten Free) A special ingredient is baked into this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread. Honey roasted peanut butter! If you have not tried it, I suggest that you do. Regular peanut butter is boring compared to this stuff. You can usually find it at those grind-your-own stations at local health food stores. This bread is also filled with great health promoting foods, banana, zucchini, coconut oil and chia seeds. There is also a balance of sweetness with the chocolate chips. Enjoy this bread for breakfast with aRead More

Five Plants You Didn’t Know You Could Eat

When most people think about food, they probably think about the grocery store or a favorite restaurant. Maybe they think about their garden or a local farm. Chances are, though, that they don’t think about their backyard or the hike they took last week in the woods. They probably don’t think about the side of the road or the cracks in the sidewalk. Well, I’m going to change that. I’m going to talk about weeds. Weeds get a bad rap, but many are edible. Not only that—some have more nutrients andRead More

Think back to when you were close to graduating high school. You probably wanted to go far away, travel and live the campus life. In our youth most of us want to move away from home, and our parents and their rules. But something happens to us after we are no longer living with our parents. We miss the food, the routines, the reminders to clean our room; the safety net. However much we want this re-connection with our family, we can become distant and too “busy” as adults. IRead More

Cashew Coconut Butter Truffles

Coconut butter is different from coconut oil. It is made from the meat of the coconut as well as the oil. It’s a two-in-one. You get this buttery, creamy texture and the nutritional profile from the oil. Coconut oil’s nutritional benefits are pretty impressive. Not only is it great to take internally but also can be used topically as an everyday moisturizer or skin ointment for rashes. For years, many believed that the fat in coconut oil was detrimental to health. That is not the case. Coconut oil contains mediumRead More

California Roll (Kariforunia Rōru) Sushi

Type: Maki The mascot of Western sushi, the California roll is popular worldwide, including Japan. Made up of crab, cucumber, and avocado, the California roll has a taste that best represents the Golden State.  Its texture is a combination between the creaminess of the crab and avocado, and the crunchiness of the cucumber and toppings; whichever of the two is felt depends on the proportion of each ingredient, as well as how one eats the roll. Much of its appeal comes from its interchangeability: crab-meat can be swapped with imitationRead More
