One of my favorite activities is eating different cuisines from all over the world. It’s a fantastic way to expand my culture and learn about a country. Food is the universal language to the soul and my mission is to unlock as many as possible to transform into my dishes back home. I enjoy the flavor combinations that expand my palette that I wouldn’t normally think of on my own. Sweet and salty is a fun combo I like to work with. Pad Thai is a dish that combines sweetness from brown sugar and saltiness from fish sauce/tamari with the tanginess from lime juice.
One of my favorite dips is spinach artichoke dip. However, it is full of mayonnaise with soybean oil and processed Parmesan cheese. It is seemingly healthy with the spinach in there. Some recipes also use mozzarella cheese, sour cream, or cream cheese to create a stomach monstrosity. As Redefining All Diets, I found a healthier way to create my favorite dish from home using a cashew base for cheese, nutritional yeast for the flavor, and vegeneise to cut a portion of the unhealthy fat. I added an extra veggie kick by stuffing it into a mushroom. This also gives it more protein to make this a well-rounded dish. You won’t even miss the meat with how filling this is.
Growing up, I lived on pizza.
When time was in a pinch, my parents would order pizza.
When I was in marching band and we had late night practices, we would order pizza.
When I would go out with my friends, we would eat pizza.
After a late night on the town, I would be craving pizza.
Everywhere you look, pizza is at every corner.
Pizza has become a staple of the American diet being eaten for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner.
It's more fun when you bring more people into the kitchen to share a meal with you.
My sister brought over some jackfruit a few days ago and I thought to myself, "What the hell do I want to do with this?"
I wasn't in the mood for BBQ since I had that the night before and I didn't want it Asian style since I'm making bahn mi pizza later this week.
After a few minutes on Google for ideas, the idea of enchiladas came up.
But not just any enchiladas...
Want to eat Chipotle Mexican Grill without having to go out and order it? Try my #chefdux Cheezy Beans and Greens Veggie Burrito Bowl. I made this recipe myself from scratch because I wanted to take a shot at making a healthy burrito bowl without all the carbs, cheese, and tortillas/chips we typically eat when we go to Chipotle. My intention is to prove that it is possible to eat healthily and crowd out the unhealthy foods while still maintaining flavor.
Are you having a sweet tooth craving?
I know I get them all the time.
I get them pretty much on a daily basis.
What is my food of choice?
CHOCOLATE! I admit it. I am quite a chocoholic.
I would go as far as eating chocolate chips out of the bag.
As delicious as that sounds, the sugar adds up quickly and I get a stomach ache right after.
Does this happen to you?
