Vegan "fishball" noodles. I can't remember the last time I had a bowl of mee pok dry but I'm glad I stumbled upon this stall in the Food Loft foodcourt. EVERYTHING IS VEGAN HERE! How great is that? The noodles were springy and cooked to perfection though I don't know how consistent they are. Also, just the right amount of chilli and vinegar went into the sauce. You'd be forgiven if you didn't believe this bowl of noodles is completely plant based! 😁
Thunder tea rice/lei cha is my favourite thing to eat at the moment. And my favourite thunder tea rice/lei cha is this one in tanjong pagar market. Tofu, groundnuts, red beans, long beans, basil, cabbage and preserved radish on a bed of red rice and served with a side of savoury green tea/herb soup which you can pour into the rice and mix it all up like a porridge (at least that's how I have it). I always feel really healthy eating this and it always helps keep me satiated for a really long time which is something I don't really get that often anymore since going vegan. Request to have it vegan though and have it with their red/brown rice too. Believe me when I say it's a million times better than any other lei cha I've had elsewhere at fancier places. Also doesn't hurt the pocket too at only 4 bucks. The stall owners are friendly too which always makes food taste that much better doesnt it?
Oatmeal cookie pie with enough dark chocolate chunks to charge me through the rest of the week 😊 made this with homemade almond milk with almond meal still in it because lazy arse here is lazy to do the straining and stuff 😂 turns out the almond meal lends such nice texture and aroma, makes for really delectable cookie/pie! 😋 and no cane sugar is added! Recipe as follows if you're keen... Wet ingredients:
1 tbs refined coconut oil
1 tbs sunflower butter
1 tbs maple syrup
Approx. 1 cup almond milk
Splash of vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbs ground flax
4 tbs rolled oats
3 tbs all purpose flour
Chocolate chips/chunks of desired amount
In a bowl, combine wet ingredients. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Mix well.
Slowly add in dry ingredients into wet ingredients to form a big dough ball. Finally fold in chocolate chips. Mix well.
Place dough onto lined baking tray. Let bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown.
If you're a sweet tooth or big on flavours, you might wanna add a touch more sweetener and/or butter.

I love this smoothie so much!! It’s a great way to start the morning right and have an “I love Mondays!” attitude 💗
Salads are always good. Always happy to munch on a good salad at work. Sometimes I feel I don't consume enough green leafy vegetables on a daily basis and salads are a great way to counter that. This salad was packed with so much goodness, from spinach to pumpkins and the dressing had hints of dill which I really love. Thank you chef, what a great way to start the morning! :)
My staple when it comes to eating at home. Simple, nutritious and most importantly... Delicious. Simple spaghetti, eggplant, garlic cooked in marmite and covered in nutritional yeast. It's a godsend for vegans because this is loaded with vitamin b12 (from the marmite and the nooch) and proteins (from the nooch). Yum!
Hardstyle KettleBell Swing
"The center of the kettlebell world" some would say
1. The back is neutral, the neck is slightly extended or neutral on the bottom of the swing.
2. The heels, toes and the the balls of the feet are planted and the knees track the toes.
3. The shoulders are packed.
4. The kettlebell handle passes above the knees during the backswing.
5. The arms are straight in the bottom position.
6. There is no forward knee movement (increasing ankle dorsiflexion) on the upswing.
7. The body forms a straight line on the top of the swing, the hips and knees extend fully , the spine is neutral.
8. The kettlebell forms an extension of the straight arms at the top of the swing. A slight elbow band is acceptable.
9. The biomechanical breathing match.
10. The abs and glutes visibly contract at the top of the swing.
11. The kettlebell floats momentarily on the top of the swing.
These are great for hip extension and power. They transfer over to the clean and snatch as well.
A good base would just being doing 3-5 days a week of 5 sets of 20 reps with a minute of rest between followed by 10 get ups, 5 on each side. -
This can be added to your regular training schedule or used to build up to more intense training.
