Have you ever cooked jackfruit before? Have you ever heard of jackfruit before?
I had only recently heard of jackfruit. I made it for lunch for the first time roasted in bbq sauce and it was so good, I felt the need to spread the news! Jackfruit, as the name implies is a fruit. However, if you chop it up and roast it in BBQ sauce, it actually tastes like pulled meat! It also resembles pulled meat. BBQ Jackfruit is so easy to make and is the perfect add to tacos, taco bowls, or to any bbq!
BBQ Jackfruit is the perfect compliment to any plant based recipe. I love that this meat alternative, is simply a fruit! So many meat alternatives are highly processed, high in sodium, and just don’t seem great for you! I love that jackfruit is completely natural and only 1 ingredient! I am a firm believer in eating real food so bbq jackfruit is a food that I can easily get on board with!
For this recipe, I used canned jackfruit that I found at Trader Joes. I put added the bbq jackfruit to a taco bowl to create a healthy and delicious, plant based Mexican meal.

Starting off Friday morning with this tart beet berry smoothie bowl on my couch in nyc. I’m obsessed with the color of this smoothie and the tart beet berry combo is one of my favs. Super excited to go see a functional medicine doctor for a routine visit (said no one ever, right?!) I think functional medicine is so interesting even tho I have zero medical background (I am an engineer by degree). I’ve been waiting for this visit for months so hopefully it’s worth the excitement. Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!! One of my favorite carrot turmeric smoothie bowls pictured here 🥕🥕🥕 Woke up early this morning and tried a Yoga Sculpt class and loved it! I don’t personally do yoga, but am trying to incorporate it into my weekly routine because I keep hearing of all its awesome benefits. I went to the studio this morning to sign up for class and they asked me if I wanted to do a regular vinyasa or a yoga sculpt (aka cardio + weights). I went for the yoga sculpt because that is so much more up my alley. I’m not sure what happened- we did burpees and squats and yoga and it was so much fun. I’ve never been to a yoga class like that and it put me in sucha good mood. Hope everyone’s Friday is off to a great start!

Mint chocolate chip flavor literally reminds me of summer. It’s so refreshing and delicious, yet it tastes like an indulgent treat. This instantly became one of my favorite smoothie bowl recipe combos. It tastes like and has the consistency of froyo yet is packed with fruits, veggies, and healthy fats to keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer.

So you travel for work? So do I. In fact, I get on an airplane twice a week, every week. I know the NYC terminals like the back of my hand. I frequent so often that the barista at Starbucks is convinced that I work there. I change time zones on a weekly basis. I am a Management Consultant.
I came into consulting about a year ago as an experienced hire. As excited as I was about starting my new job, I was also completely worried about maintaining my healthy lifestyle. You eat out everyday? Networking events are key? Is there such thing as ‘The Consulting 15’? It took some trial and error, but here are 6 ways I’ve been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle while constantly traveling.

Carrot cake smoothie bowl! I think this is my new favorite smoothie bowl. Had this for lunch today and I don’t even feel guilty about eating this “treat” because it’s primarily made of veggies, but still tastes sweet.

This is hands down one of my favorite recipes. It is a plant-based take on a comfort food. I love that this dish takes like a comfort food, but is still super lite. See recipe below, it makes about 2 servings.

Threw together the leftovers from my kitchen and came out with these carrot cake muffins! They are vegan, gluten free, have no added sugar and are awesome! Definitely going to try making these before my next flight ✈️ to pack as breakfast. They were too easy to make.
I use a bamboo cutting board from Thrive Market to prep my veggies because plastics interacting with your food is a thing!

Avocados for breakfast. Avocados for lunch. Avocados for dinner. I loveeee avocados. Got a chance to stop by the Union Square Green Market yesterday and pick up some farm fresh eggs which are sooo good. It’s crazy the difference you can taste in eggs depending on where you buy them. This morning’s breakfast bowl was very easy to make:
