Chocolate Mint Thick Fudge Pudding

*My next post will be from after my Thailand vacation- look forward to something Thai inspired by the end of this week!*

This is a recipe I enjoyed a lot this summer. It was a great one to cook up then package for  a meal at work._MG_0967


Salsa+Olive Stuffed Pollack

********At the time this post is published, I will be enjoying myself on holiday in Thailand! However, I wanted to give you something despite being away :) *******

So remember a few weeks ago, when I said I wanted to incorporate more fish into my diet?_MG_0962


A Lighter Bulgogi Japchae (Korean style beef and noodle stir-fry)

So this dish is kinda a Bulgogi/ Japchae hybrid. Bulgogi is a Korean beef dish- marinated beef stir-fried in a sweet sauce with some vegetables and Japchae is stirfried sweet potato noodles and vegetables in a sweet sesame soy dressing. However mine is minus the high fat, high carbs, sugar and noodles. _MG_0646 With the help of aloe noodles (or kelp noodles) this dish gets slimmed down, and I use stevia to replace the sugar. I didn’t use sesame oil because I don’t have any, but if you wanted a more authentic flavour, I would suggest you add some to your sauce.


Persimmon Stuffed Kabochas

*Warning there are a lot of photos in this post

I. just. couldn’t. help. myself.

I mean…


Fish and Coconut Cream Soup

I love soup.. especially anything with a coconut base!

And now that the weather is chillier, I find myself seeking out warmer meals.


Slow and Healthy: Slobbie Restaurant in Hongdae

I recently found myself in Hongdae with my friend at a vegetarian (yet had meat options) kind of restaurant. My friend has been staying with me these past few weeks as she is in between jobs and needs a place to crash. Her stay has been helpful towards some fun nights.

Anyways, she is a vegetarian and I figured why not find a suitable restaurant for her while she tags along with me to Hongdae for a haircut.

ColdStone busts your diet, jinja?!

(Jinja means really in Korean)

This morning I will have you know, I forcefully made myself head down to the high school track below my window. (I stare at it every day but never move from my rear in front of the computer)

I ran and walked the track. I did an ab workout, a few yoga poses and did my headstand in the middle of the field. It was fun. It felt good.

Then, I came inside and made my daily Green slush (I don’t have a juicer, so I blend everything… a green apple, a cucumber, a slice of peach, some ginger and bok choy)


Veggie cleanout

As I have mentioned before, veggies in SOK ate super inexpensive if you shop at the markets. You can get so much more your money. But the trick is that you have to figure out how to eat it all before it goes bad. Sometimes this entails eating tomatoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This morning I decided to make zucchini tots. I found the recipe via Pinterest, but of course I can’t follow a recipe and had to alter it.


Holy “Energy Balls” from Kansas!

Getting packages is always nice but its pretty much awesome when you get one while abroad from friends and family back home. Today I received a “welcome back to Busan” care package from Nicole’s best friend Nicole and her husband Nick in Kansas. A very thoughtful combo of ingredients was included for me to make my own “Energy Balls” from scratch. She also included some taco seasoning, which as many of us Soko dwellers know is not an easy find.

The healthy recipe is pictured below for those who have a sudden hankering for balls….Energy Balls. Thanks again guys, you are most excellent!
