I’m Back!

Hey gals and guys! As you can see, I haven’t been keeping up to date with the blog. Sorry about that, haha. I have been quite busy with acting, writing and producing. Also I am launching a new section on my blog, which is the cooking corner, in which I will teach you how to make healthy food at home quick. Also when it gets warmer here in NYC, I will also start to film a series of yoga/strength work out videos for building lean muscles, getting slim and healthy.

So everything is on track, and is in a working progress Stay tune!
More things to come in a couple of weeks.

Healthy Cooked Pepper Salad

IMG_20150918_124903

Sick of eating salads to stay slim or to detox, switch it up! This recipe is easy to make, and it is great for people who is constantly on the go. Also, since pepper contains a lot of fiber, you will be more full than eating a garden salad. Recently, a lot of my friends are doing cleanses and diets and they are complaining to me that they are so sick of raw foods and salads, and does not want a cheat day since that encourages them to eat more. So I bring to you guys, a quick and easy to make non-cheat meal. It will provide energy, cleanses your body and mind and plus, it is so delicious. Sometimes, simple things are the best thing.
