My Buddha Bowl Recipe Using RightRice

A beautiful presentation of a buddha bowl with rice, colorful vegetables and sesame tofu on a round white plate.

Like many of you, I've been doing a lot of cooking throughout 4 months of sheltering in place and self-quarantining. This Buddha Bowl with Sesame Marinated Tofu is one of my best recipes from this time, although I'll be sharing a few more of my quarantine-cooking favorites. I just love how beautiful this one turned out and it was equally beautiful to eat...I literally couldn't stop. I'll give you a little background on how it came to be...

 

SodaStream Recipes You Need To Try!

If you don't have a SodaStream in your life, you need to get one! I'm obsessed with mine but I have to admit that I got on the train a little late in life. I wish I had purchased one much sooner! So, I put together these recipes with the help of SodaStream to inspire everyone to reject the vending machine and all those delicious looking sugary drinks that get advertised to us all summer long. I know they look good on billboards and in commercials but so many carbonated drinks and sodas are loaded with sugar and sodium.

I kid you not that my SodaStream has become a healthy replacement tool. You can make your own fizzy drinks without the huge calorie intake. If you already have a SodaStream, you know what I'm talking about (just skip ahead to the recipes below). Drinks loaded with sodium (that seem to be lower in calories or have zero) will most often make you feel bloated and sluggish. Not good if you're trying to lose weight! The opposite will happen! Your body will hold onto...

Spicy Avocado Tostada Recipe

I love avocados! Whether it’s the main dish, a side dish or just a topping, I’m ALL IN. I can’t say no to Avocados From Mexico’s Haas avocados. I grew up on them. My family is from Honduras, which is a hop-skip-step away from Mexico Lindo. We borrow a lot of cultural activities and cooking styles from Mexico that have become ingrained in my foodie palate, and which I’ll never kick! ** This campaign has received compensation from Collective Bias, Inc. and it's advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #VidaAguacate #EchaleLoMejor #CollectiveBias ** When I sat down to come up with a fast and easy recipe that’s mouth-watering, I knew I wanted it to include Avocados From Mexico because they’re so incredibly nutritious. Any health coach will tell you to indulge and eat them as part of a balanced diet, because avocados don’t require unhealthy additives to taste good.. The beauty of an avocado is you could literally eat it on its own and it tastes amazing! As long...

Fast Recipes For A Healthier Morning

I was a guest of CocoaVia® brand at the 2017 Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards. I'm also a sponsored CocoaVia® brand influencer, but all opinions and advice you’re about to read are 100% my own.* I have two simple recipes to share with you in this post but let me back up a bit and give you some context on why they’re both health related. You have to read about my night at the Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards! It was a large gathering of amazing and energetic people who love health! Do a hashtag search for #REDDRESSAWARDS on Twitter and Instagram to see my posts from the night! Some of my favorite celebrities in the media were in attendance and also hosted. I was most excited for Hoda Kotb, who I once did a Today Show segment with, but still can’t bring myself to watch (let’s just say it was at the very beginning of my career and I was a novice). Tamron Hall, Joy Bauer and a bunch of other successful women in the news and within the health world were also...
