Munggo (mung beans) is a plant specie in the legume family. It is mainly cultivated in Southeast Asia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, China, Nepal, Korea and other parts of Asia. They are small, green beans, (smaller than a pea) and normally sold dry and whole. I grew up with my mom serving this dish once a week. She starts boiling those whole mighty mung beans hours before lunch time. However, with split mung beans available, I was able to cook this faster. Oh and meat is optional, but coconut milk is a requirement! Recipe for my Filipino vegan style mung bean is at https://www.travelingbetweenplates.com/eggplant-and-mung-bean-stew/

Sometimes I miss America so much I crave hotdogs hahah. Went exploring in Kichijoji the other day and grabbed a chorizo hotdog in a pretzel bun, paired with mulled wine🍷🌭 I think they also sell mini hotdogs for dogs too, so I’ll definitely be visiting with my doggo next time round ☺️🐕
Effy’s Kitchen in Manhattan:
was in The Big 🍎 this past weekend!!! (NYC is grossly overrated and too overpriced for this group of Texans)
Effy’s was a real bright spot. Unbelievable ambiance in such a small little #holeinthewall
. Our server was fantastic and I hope he sees our post. Date spot, drinking spot, hangover recovery spot, brunch spot, and hangout spot, etc. This place would be great for all occasions. If I lived in NY I’d totally have a birthday brunch here.
Basic Betches Dranking Bottomless Mimosas.
Overall: Two Thumbs up 👍🏿 if I ever come back I’m coming back!
Let go of your past so you can embrace your future 🦋

Crazy THICK chocolate shake! I thought I'd switch it up and try using gelatin as the protein source in my smoothie. Gelatin's health benefits are almost identical to those of collagen, but its texture when added to recipes is very different. Get your spoon ready, because you'll have to eat this shake out of a bowl rather than drink it!
• 1 frozen banana.
• small handful of frozen zucchini or squash.
• 3/4 cup milk or water.
• a couple ice cubes.
• 2 tbsp cocoa powder.
• 1 scoop @furtherfood
gelatin (10% discount: LIVVYDUCK10).
• 1/2 cup warm water.
***Important! Do not add powdered gelatin directly into cold ingredients; it will congeal immediately. First, you must dissolve it in the 1/2 cup of warm water. Set that aside, then blend all remaining ingredients together until completely smooth. Set blender to lowest speed, then blend in gelatin mixture last.

All the Friends quotes were said.
All the Ross Gellar "PIVOT" moments happened.
And now I'm moved in.
In a new space, and kind of a new chapter in my life.
I don't know where this going to take me.
But I do know that this change feels good, for me.
And I don't know about you guys, but I haven't been in the practice of making decisions that truly feel good FOR ME...since like, NEVER!
And you know what I'm learning more and more?
When we make decisions that feel good for us,
Decisions that contribute to our happiness,
Everything else kind of seems to fall perfectly into place from there.
And easily too. Not as difficult or BIG as we made it out to be in our heads, you know?
And now, back to watching Friends y'all! #mondaythoughts @friends
This past year has been a roller coaster of emotions. I’ve experienced so much pain and loss but, the strength and growth that followed it was even greater. Sometimes it takes the loss of someone close to you to really make you appreciate life. I’m going into my 25th year of life with more self-confidence than I’ve ever had, surrounded by so many people that love me and help me to become a better version of myself. I continue to accomplish goals and make strives towards my dream career, eliminating all of the self-doubt. The woman I am today is completely different from who I was before and I am so proud of me. I can’t wait to see what this next year brings. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes. ☺️
I act like I’m unbothered, but deep down inside...
I’m still unbothered.
Feeling like @happy_balancedlife

PUMPKIN PIZZA FOR A CAUSE! 🎃🍕 I’ve teamed up with @culinarycare
an organization here in Chicago that provides free made-to-order, nutritious meals to cancer patients and their families at hospitals around the city. ✨ I created this amazing pumpkin pizza with baby kale, mushrooms, mozzarella, pumpkin seeds, local truffle honey & pecorino “snow” with chef Zach from @the_florentine
and the best part is that a part of the proceeds from this pizza will be going to @culinarycare

Must. Consume. All. Instant noodles.

What’s your go-to cure for the chills??
Sometimes you just have to go green! Now is the time when we all eat all kinds of food we may not normally eat. Maybe it’s emotional or maybe it’s because everywhere we look there are chocolates or cookies or a plethora of sugary treats. Occasionally your body will shout at you and say “hey give me some greens!” Take it’s advice and eat them 😊it will keep your moods more even and you will feel better. Stay healthy and fuel yourself. #eatgoodfood #eatyourgreens #feedyoursoul

I don’t normally take a selfie when I’m not feeling the greatest, let alone smile. But with #highfunctioningmentalillness
I’m “able” to accomplish so much. I’m able to get out of bed, drive myself to a coffee shop, set up appointments and keep them, run errands, laugh with others, and cook a meal for the family. This is what mental illness looks like. On difficult days like today-where I don’t feel like my efforts are enough, where I’m overthinking comments I made in conversation, where I’m contemplating my fight- I remind myself of my worth. I remind myself that my efforts are enough because I wouldn’t be where I am without my strength. I remind myself that running one or two errands is significant because it’s less things for my parents to do. I have to remind myself of the impacts I’m making. That’s what keeps me going. I am worthy, I am strong, my fight is worth it, and I’m one badass warrior. #selfloveadventchallenge2018 #adventchallenge @iammelwells @theselflovesummit
I don’t know which was better... this Chicken Sorrentino or Tiramisu 😍🍝🍮
We had an early dinner with some family that were in town at Vivo Ristorante & it was amazing as always! But now I’m thinking of what I can make for my second dessert 😏😂
As if I couldn’t love @vitalfarms
more, then I was invited to their bullsh*t free brunch this past Saturday and it was a dream, truly ✨✨✨ I got to be amongst many fellow food, health & wellness enthusiast brought together by a brand that gets it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Their passion for the big picture inspires me! 🌎 They care about the animals, the farmers & families caring for them, the products being sold and the people consuming them. Unfortunately, that is a lost art for the majority but listening to the people of @vitalfarms
has given me hope. Hope that the food industry can do better, that we can demand better and that we can still have good quality food, while still taking care of the people & animals who produce it!
We, as a family, are extremely blessed to have our own laying beauties 🐔 but when we were in transition or when we need to supplement, @vitalfarms
is the ONLY way we go! Thank you to the whole @vitalfarms
team for bringing us together. For sharing all you are doing to pave the way to a higher quality lifestyle & food! We need you and we appreciate that you see the value in us as well!!
Food cred: @starprovisions
Bacchanalia crushed the menu & pictured is one of the courses they created for us: Carolina Gold Rice Porridge w/, of course Poached Vital Farms Pasture-Raised Eggs & Butter! 🤤 #cleanmodernmayhem #hope #dobetter #demandbetter #inspired #happyhens #happycows #healthylifestyle
These Brown Sugar Shortbread Caramel Thumbprints are just as good as they sound. They just might have been the first thing that disappeared from the cookie tray. ;) The recipe is over on the blog today -link in profile, as the first cookie in our Christmas Cookie Week! This is going to be yummy. 😋
🌅True Refuge is Within🌅
Recently, a student who regularly takes my vinyasa flow classes, practiced #yinyoga
with me for the first time. After class she shared her experience and I found what she said so profound that I had to share it with you... She said, after a moment of reflection, that the practice reminded her of a time away immersed in nature. That 1 hour in class created the same effect for her as 2 weeks of daily yoga practice, disconnected from the grid and deeply rooted in nature. How freaking awesome is that?? Simply 1 HOUR away from technology, holding shapes in mindful presence with embodied deep breathing created the same effect as 2 WEEKS completely off the grid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What does this demonstrate? Undoubtedly that True Refuge is Within YOU. You can find relief from a source outside of you but there is also a natural wellspring of abundance, clarity, and ease already within you just waiting to be tapped. Nature is a source and a means to this quality of being, however, you too, are also both a source and a means. Nature reminds you who you already are, a living breathing thing deserving of all of the ease, clarity and abundance that you desire because you are made of this stuff. You are magic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Want to join me to try this practice or one of my other classes? Drop me comment or DM and I'll hook you up #yogaforall

and I highly recommend anything and everything created by this incredible human
