I Spent 3 Days on a Ranch and Came Back Flexitarian!

I fly to LA a lot these days, mostly for TV appearances or influencer related events, so when I decided to partner with Pure Farmland and join their influencer retreat, I had somewhat of an idea in my head about how it would go. Part of the retreat experience included going to Food Expo West, which was supposed to happen in Anaheim. But literally 24 hours before I landed in California, it was cancelled due to the outbreak of coronavirus (a.k.a. COVID-19) in the US.

HelloFresh + Bianca Jade

HelloFresh is how I learned to efficiently and deliciously cook. I never took an interest in making my own meals until I was 30. And once I became interested, the hassle of grocery shopping quickly became a burden, reigniting my laziness to order delivery or takeout.

Most likely, it's going to add up to lots of sodium, butter and unnecessary sugars and oils. As they say, ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN. I'm not a nutritionist or health coach but a lot of my friends are (with best selling books to boot!). So let's just say I've learned a thing or two from them, starting with how...
