Did You Know?: Food Combining Charts

8. Food Combining Chart

So, there’s something called food combining where there’s good and bad. At times after you eat, your stomach doesn’t feel good and it’s hard to digest. You may wonder why often, and that’s usually due to bad food combining. Below is a chart that makes it easy to see which are good food combinations and which aren’t.

Even though I’ve been making healthy choices, my stomach hasn’t been feeling great and has been bloated. I totally forgot about food combining and I’ve been doing bad FC for awhile now. (ex: I ate fruit right after my meals and so forth)

Both have the same basic concept, but I just wanted to make it easier on the eyes, though the left one is prettier to me 🙂

Raw Vegan Meals

So today I start Day 1 of trying to update on what I eat and stuff. Although honestly, I doubt that I’m really going to keep up with these.

Now, I honestly am still so intrigued with the 80/10/10 raw vegan diet and really wish that I could do that and stick with it. Unfortunately, it is so tough while I’m in college and as a Korean who all my life have eaten cooked asian foods. So, I decided I’ll transition slowly. I’m going to try to make at least one of my daily meals be fully raw vegan. Today, I was successful. I had for breakfast a bunch of baby bell peppers, 2 plums, and a giant carrot. For lunch I had a concoction of protein powder and chia seeds.

For dinner though, I totally treated myself to Olive Garden. My friends and I went out today to watch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 which was super cute~ I treated them all to dinner as well as myself and we ate a lot. Well, most of us hehe. It was yummy and not going to lie, the bill came out pretty high, but I guess it was worth it 🙂

I am still sooo full, but I really want mint oreos T^T How to stop such cravings…

Korean Recipe: DakGalbi (Marinated/BBQ Chicken) (닭갈비)

닭갈비

So over the summer, I stayed a bit at summer school to get ahead and my friends wanted me to make them Korean food since we all didn’t have a meal plan. I think this is one of the first legit korean main dishes that I have made all by myself.

Anyways, I asked my friends what they wanted and one of them said this dish. So, I bought all of the ingredients after a struggle of a trip to H-Mart and this was my first try. Got to hand it to myself, it was pretty darn impressive. One friend (He’s from Korea and 24 years old) said that it tastes better than what they serve at restaurants – no exaggeration. He ate 2-3 servings worth! Just bragging a bit :P But also, this means it’s possible for everybody to make such a delicious dish at home so easily~

RV LF Strawberry “Cheesecake”

IMG_2005

So, there are many strawberry cheesecake recipes out there most likely, including raw vegan ones; however, mine’s a very easy one that is low fat, raw vegan, and super easy and clean. I prefer not to use coconut oil or too much if any agave nectar since those will only add unnecessary ingredients to the body.

I like to keep it easy and stuff. Also, I recently found that either I’m allergic to nuts or just highly reactive to fatty foods. I would break out in hives and get itchy when I eat peanut butter, a lot of nuts, or greasy foods. 😦

Thankfully, the foods I have up (most) are not high fat nor are they greasy~

Children and Adults love this – I gave some to my mother’s guests and the kids especially were in love!

Long Time No See~

Long Time No See~

Here’s a photo of me with this snuggly panda bear at costco with my friends 🙂

It’s been a very long time since I have updated and I apologize. I started this for myself – to keep track of my health, to stick with my goals, and to have a sort of diary for myself as well as recipes for myself. Although, I realized that I like to cook according to my tastebuds rather than actual measurements, so it’s difficult to put up korean recipes…
I think i’m going to try going a different route: One that records what I have eaten every day or every few days so that I can keep myself on track. I really want to lose weight and remain healthy. I’m proud that I haven’t gotten sick yet while at school this year, but I can feel it lurking. Here I go!
