Cali Girl Gets Macros!

Welcome to the wonderful world of macros which is both exciting and terrifying, for those who don’t know how to get started! Starting in January 2017, I decided to try using macros to calculate my nutritional goals because I saw a lot of people achieving great results with it. Below, […]

Supplements: Protein and BCAAs

Every week when I post my meal plans, I get a lot of questions about supplements: how they benefit my workout, and how to choose between a sea of different brands. Here, I’m going to go over the two supplements I’m currently taking: protein and BCAAs and how they help […]

Shrimp And Polenta

One of my favorite things to eat is polenta, and it’s such an easy thing to make. It also works great for mealprep, because it reheats well and lasts in the fridge for a long time. I decided to make this for my prep this week! Here are the simple […]

Nice Cream is Never Naughty!

Have you been naughty or nice this year? Well, one thing is for sure, nice cream is ALWAYS nice! This week’s recipe was created by a good friend of mine, Melissa, who is the author of So Much Yum Blog. She makes the best plant-based creations, is a registered dietician, takes […]

Why Chopsticks?

A lot of the food posts on my instagram show chopsticks as my only utensils. I’ve gotten a few questions about why I eat with chopsticks so often, and it’s not just because I’m Asian! Although I’ve been using chopsticks pretty much all my life and consider myself rather adept with them, using […]

Meal Prep On The Go!

Life for me has been a bit crazy between my office job (I work at an architecture firm), workout schedule, and photoshoots (I work part time as a lifestyle model/commercial actress in SF). Most of the time, I’m running late for something, don’t have time for food, and end up […]

Protein Powder

Protein powder is somewhat new territory for me. When I think of it, I would envision men with muscles drinking protein shakes to get more bulky! But after talking with both male AND female trainers, I learned that it can help me to gain lean muscle mass. I did a little bit of […]
