FoodFlo – a vegan delivery service that slays!

 

Sooo I had the wonderful opportunity to try a subscription to FoodFlo – a vegan food delivery service that delivers to CA, NV, and AZ!

FoodFlo boasts delicious, whole food plant based recipes via French gourmet chef Florence Bertheau.

For more than 20 years, chef Flo cooked for her many students and celebrity clients the way she had learned in her native France, rich in butter and creamy sauces, heavy on meats, eggs and dairy. Then a paradigm shift happened. She began to see how certain foods had a profoundly positive effect on the health of her autistic daughter and on Flo herself. She created her own food pyramid based on three principles: Vegan, gluten-free and alkaline pH-balanced. Menus began evolving. Flo started using dense plant-based hypo-allergenic foods such as sprouted grains, nuts, vegetarian proteins, fresh greens and produce from local farms.

Floโ€™s journey of โ€˜health through foodโ€™ balances her company values of fresh and raw food nutrition with social and environmental consciousness; being aware of how what we eat affects the earth and all animals that live on it. Purchasing seasonal and local, she is able to provide the best quality products that are cost efficient, reduce the carbon footprint, all cooked with the intention for your good health.

I tried a week’s worth of menu items, and felt absolutely amazing afterwards. The meals were hearty but not heavy, and all of the ingredients were incredibly fresh. I especially enjoyed their handmade snack bars, pictured above!

They packed everything to perfection, as well – the meals came cold and fresh and ready to go. I was very impressed.

I highly recommend this service, especially if you don’t have time to meal prep during the week! You’ll have all the benefits of an organic, gluten-free vegan chef for a great price and a minimum of fuss.

Thanks for the trial, FoodFlo! You have a fan in me. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Plantbased Jetsetter x iLoveKickboxingย 

 

Many of us are still in the throes of our New Years’ resolutions – one of mine was to lose the 20lbs of what I call ‘happy fluff’ that I have accumulated over a year of living in Vegas and eating at the Wynn at 4am too much. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enter ilovekickboxing on Flamingo andย the 215 freeway!

I’ve partnered with this high energy gym in order to transform my body into a lean, mean, fighting machine once again.

Of course, diet is a big part of a body transformation, so you’re going to see a lot more greens and lean vegan protein in my posts for the forseeable future.

Stay tuned for transformation pics! I’ll be posting bi-weekly so you can see the changes that will be taking place.

Go go kickboxing and greens!!

Happy Thursday!

When your date cancels, throw on your Treekisser swag and pout.


The Tree Kisser is one of my favorite vegan fashion brands, run by powerhouse Jessica Schlueter. She donates a portion of her proceeds to a different animal related charity every month, as well! ๐Ÿ’•

I shake mine up with my plant based protein or sometimes just mix it with almond milk when I need a quick pick me up! I have been taking it for a few months now and I love it. It saves my life on long trips. You can also add fujiKale to smoothies or even bake it to muffins or bread.

Check out their website here – they are currently having a sale! And be sure to let me know which recipes you end up using fujiKale in

Review – Purple Frog ‘aromatheraputic patches’

Who doesn’t love a good whiff of essential oil? I sure do. It can be inconvenient, however, to lug around a diffuser on the go.

Enter Purple Frog aromatheraputic patches! They are the world’s only non-toxic, personal air fresheners, utilizing only the highest quality organic essential oil scents.

You can literally stick these little patches anywhere; (they are activated when you pop the little sac inside of them), and I set out to do just that!

I was particularly obsessed with the ‘air awakening‘ patches and, being the corporate flight attendant that I am, stuck them around my plane in strategic locations to make my passengers’ ride a more pleasant experience.

(I also put a few on my pilot’s arm rests; they were confused at first but warmed up to them. I am forever introducing them to new products like these. They are good sports!)


I also put a few next to the kitchen sink in my home so I could enjoy the fresh peppermint and eucalyptus aromas there as well!

As for the ‘snooze button‘ patches, I keep one on the corner of my bedside table and it has actually improved my sleep! I drift off with the smell of lavender and chamomile and it is very helpful to have these on the road, especially when we are hopping through different time zones and our sleep schedule is wonky.

Lastly, the lemongrass and citronella oil ‘insect shielder‘ patches are doing a good job of guarding my little herb garden here at home. (I also put one of these on the plane when we landed and had a bunch of mosquitos I had to shoo away. They’re super effective!)

I would recommend all three of these patches, at home or on the go! They smell amazing and they do what they claim to do. That can be a rare find.

Thanks, Purple Frog!

Recipe – yummy veggie stir fry!


I just got back home after a week long work trip and was happy to get back into my kitchen!

Luckily I had some produce that was still fresh, and I whipped up a quick, delicious stir fry.

Recipe:

Ingredients

1 yellow onion, chopped

1 cup oyster mushrooms

1 cup shiitake mushrooms

1 cup black wood ear mushrooms

1 bunch bok choy 

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons ponzu sauce

1 tablespoon lemon salt/pepper

1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon turmeric 

It’s a stir fry, so this process is pretty straightforward.

I sprayed the wok with coconut oil, diced the onion, and added it to the pan with all of the spices.

Once the onions are sweating, add the bok choy and simmer on medium for about 3 minutes.

Add the mushrooms and cook on medium-high heat for about 5-8 minutes. Keep tasting, as you might need to add more sauce or seasoning depending on how evenly your ingedients are distributed.

And that’s the happy stir fry recipe! Enjoy!
