Vegan Potato Greens with Mushrooms are often not associated with the traditional Liberian dish. The original dish is often loaded with thick pieces of tender meat and fish, hardly do you see it made with mushrooms. Potato greens are made from the leaves of the sweet potato plant. For the longest time I could not find a place in NYC to buy this food, that was not until I began to notice the shape of these leaves in the Asian food stores that I frequented.View Post
As of two months ago, I found myself out of work. I was sent an email the previous night to meet for a 9 am meeting the morning of 6/12. I did not fret too much about the message. It read along the lines of almost like a promotion. It talked about the growing changes within the organization and how I would fit into the puzzle (well I guess reading it now, it could go both ways).View Post
Easy foolproof vegetable broth, a caveman can do it! Okay, maybe there’s no real science for that. However, this vegetable broth has been the essential base for a lot of my stew recipes, and ever since I’ve started incorporating it – I’ve found that it elevates my dishes to the next level. I love this recipe because it’s quick, cheap and easy, WITHOUT CELERY. Lots of recipes out there recommend celery but I find it to be overpowering.View Post
Affordable Ayurvedic hair growth oil can easily be achieved without much of an investment. When I first learned of @Curly Proverbz on YouTube, I wasn’t familiar with the Ayurvedic healing properties. To me, growing hair was making sure to condition your hair often and to have good genes. Though when I first big chopped my hair I was so diligent with hair care and conditioning oils. Then I got lazy and it no longer became fun. Since then I’ve gone through 4 big chops, with the most recent in 2017 due to uneven hair in the back of my head due to breakage.View Post
Thai green curry is probably one of my favorite Thai dishes, after pad thai. So when my friend had an idea of going to Thailand for her 30th birthday, I couldn’t say no. In February I got to visit the beautiful country of Thailand with some amazing ladies. This was the first time I’ve been that far east, so I was not looking forward to the flight nor time difference. However, if I was asked to do it all over again, I’d do it in a heartbeat. You must go.
Other than the food, the scenery has to be the best part of Thailand. We visited both Bangkok and Phuket and each area had their own feel and look. Bangkok is city vibes and Phuket gives a beachy vibe to it.View Post
Vegan Ice cream is for sure hard to come by, but when you do find it – expect to pay a premium for the tasty treat. I am still 100% a fan of buying the tubs of ice-cream from Whole Foods and then going to town on them at home. But buying outside is part of the experience. You may go on an especially hot day in the summer, you’re out with some friends, or you simply just deserve it. So long you keep the purchase within your budget. Everything else will fall into place. Here are my recommendations of places to go for some non-dairy ice cream, I also created a map with all establishments across NYC for access. If I missed a spot – drop it down below.View Post
