No food is a BAD food
It is easy for a nutrition person like me to say that those food with saturated fat is BAD for you. People often see posters of GOOD food and BAD food. It is easy to find yourself conforming to these categories. The truth is though, in high amounts, any food can be BAD for you. You can get toxicity from vitamins or minerals and those are the things that are prized so highly. If we stream...
Let the healthy food chime in!
I like to see that fruits and vegetables are given side options at various food places, and the one place that I’m happy to see it at is DISNEYLAND. Not only does Disneyland provide fruit stands around the park, but it also offers it with your meal. Instead of choosing fries, I chose fruits. They give you enough. I’m happy that Disneyland, being such a huge company, is doing its...
MHT in San Jose won an Honorable Mention from... →
My professor Dr. Freedman created this wonderful program at Most Holy Trinity Church last summer (My school should be so proud of it). It incorporates two of the main tools that highlight the importance of being healthy: physical activity and healthy eating. I’m so happy that she has won an honorable mention from this challenge. It is a blessing to work for her and have been taught by her....

Nothing should get left behind: Spaghetti
My dad has always told me that fried rice is a great way to use all your leftovers. Well, when you get tired of eating rice, you can use spaghetti! For this dish, I created an olive oil based sauce. I sauted it with garlic and then added cilantro. I used my nose to smell the rich flavor and then added the heated/cooked chicken, cauliflower, and shitake mushrooms.Tossed in the cooked spaghetti,...

On that note,
There are some mini projects that I’m working on and posts I’m developing. I usually don’t publish the ones that I find very interesting until I feel that I have found the answers I need. You are all free to ask me questions. I’m not going to guarantee a good answer, but for those who have asked, I’m in the process of replying. The past weeks have been hectic! With...
Brentwood, CA for post-poned Mother’s Day. Out in the country, into the field. Rows of cherries trees ready to for our buckets to be filled. Climbing ladders, throwing fruits. It was fun and worth only 30 loots! This was a fun adventure. This is a fun activity to do with your kids to get them involved with nature and picking their own food. They’re most likely to...
I learn a lot from the experiences I participate in. One of the presentations I did at my internship was sugar-sweetened beverages. I took out a nutrition label of Sunny D: Source People often think Sunny D is a juice, and I don’t blame them. It often is marketed as a juice and looks like one too. At first, I was only examining the nutrition facts and then I looked at the label. The...

Lifestyle changes…contributor to childhood obesity
So, I have many guy friends that take protein supplements/drink protein shakes/and etc. There is only ONE that I could trust that know what he’s doing. I know that many would argue they see results, but I think you can get just as much protein from eating real food. I’m pretty sure there are many other factors to why someone would choose protein shake such as calories or what not BUT...
