Tidbit Tuesday: Ordering Vegan at Chinese Restaurantsย 

Today on Tidbit Tuesday, I will show you how to order vegan at Chinese restaurants!

Most Chinese restaurants list your “meat” options as shrimp, beef, or chicken. But did you know there is a fourth option that is vegan friendly?

Thats right! Most Chinese restaurants don’t list it, but they do in fact have Tofu!

My favorites have been General Tso Tofu and Seasame Tofu! Make sure you order white rice instead of fried rice, and you’re good to go!


Also, remember to order a veggie spring roll instead of an egg roll.


Until next time, eat your veggies and enjoy your Chinese food too!

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

My weightloss journey is going a little slower than I’d like. I have the diet down, except for a few extra bowls of Life Cinnamon cereal and some Vegan ice cream for dessert… but I haven’t started the big part of weight loss: working out.

I could beat myself up when I step on the scale. But I choose not to.

As with most things, slow and steady win the race.

We want our weight to just fly off of us, but to healthfully loose weight–that’s not how it works.

Eating Vegan at Chipotle

Today on Tidbit Tuesday, I want to share my favorite place to go eat at: Chipotle

Did you know that they are vegan friendly?

They have sofritas which is made of Tofu and spices!


Yes, it’s just as YUM as it looks!

To eat a healthy and deliciously Vegan dish, order a burrito bowl with:

  • Sofritas
  • Brown rice
  • Black beans
  • Mild salad
  • Corn salsa
  • Lettuce
  • Guacamole 
  • And cilantro!

โ€‹โ€‹
Look at that yummy, healthy, vegan goodness!

Until next time, eat healthy and have your Chipotle too!

Zesty Asian-inspired Tempeh

Hey there! Thanksโœจ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Foodie Friday!๐Ÿด

Today I am sharing a simple dish that has become a staple for dinner! It’s super yummy!

Zesty Asian-inspired Tempeh

Marinate tempeh in soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and hoisin sauce. 

Cook until light brown in a pan.

Serve on top of rice with cilantro, a lime, and green onions!

You’re probably wondering what tempeh is, right? 

It’s actually a lot like Tofu, but less processed. It’s made of fermented soy compacted together. It’s tastes different than Tofu. In my opinion, it’s more flavorful and tasty!

Until next time, eat your veggies and have your tempeh too!

Foodie Friday: Nooch Coated Tofuย 

Hey there! Thanksโœจ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Foodie Friday!๐Ÿด


My favorite lunch/dinner: Nooch Crusted Tofu.

(Nooch is Nutritional Yeast, it naturally has a cheesy and buttery flavor.)

Spray Braggs amino acids on extra firm Tofu. 

Coat the Tofu with nooch.

Pan fry with vegan butter. 

Put on a whole wheat bun. I like to add veganaise to mine! 

And that’s it! 

Until next time, remember: Have your veggies and eat your cookies๐Ÿช too!

The Start of My Health Journey!

I’m on my path to eating healthy and feeling happy! 

Last year when I was vegan, working out, and generally healthy all around–I weighed 120 pounds. 


I am now up to 160 pounds. 


I’ll keep track of my weight loss as I go. 

Maybe you think I look fine, but I don’t think so. And it’s not just skin deep.

 I want to be HEALTHY!
I’m only  3 days on this vegan diet and I’m less bloated, my skin is clearing, and the fat is loosening!

Here’s to my journey! Thanks for going on it with me!

(Recipes will be coming soon!)

I’m back!

After a year long hiatus, I’m back! Back to being vegan and back to blogging!

Earlier this year was my last year of college and I got super derailed. I stopped eating vegan, started eating bad foods again, and gained 40 pounds!

So, join me on my health journey! I want to get back to the me last year, and maybe you can gain something too!

I’ll start posting recipes, tips, and more soon!

Here’s a sneak preview of recipes to come…

Smoothie Sunday!

What Vegans Eat Wednesday

And much more!

Until then…

Have your healthy food, and eat your cookies๐Ÿช too!

A Natural Anxiety Remedy You Haven’t Thought Of!

Feeling anxious, depressed, angry, or any other negative feeling?

First: click here for my 4 Natural Anxiety Remedies.

Next: try grounding!

It’s like meditating, but easier.

I try to do this once a day, in addition to meditating once a day.

NOTE: Grounding and meditation don’t have to be religious–they are simply helpful tools for a happy life!

So, how do you ground yourself?

Just go outside and stand, sit, or lay down on the ground.

You can also lean against a tree๐ŸŒฒ or sit at the base of the tree.

When it gets too coldโ„๏ธ, you can still ground yourself indoors.๐Ÿก

There is no wrong way to ground yourself.

You can imagine roots coming out of your body and into the earth.

You can pray or say a mantra.

Or, just enjoy nature.

Look at the trees…๐ŸŒณ

Flowers…๐ŸŒท

Grass…๐ŸŒพ

and the sky.๐ŸŒˆ 

Appreciate the beauty of nature around you.๐ŸŒ„

Most importantly “ground” yourself to nature. Feel a connection to the earth and the nature around you.

I know it sounds weird, crazy, and a little out there, but trust me! You should feel more calm and positive.

๐ŸŒŒAlso, ground yourself to the earth via the lunar cycle.๐ŸŒ’๐ŸŒ“๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ“๐ŸŒ˜

๐ŸŒšGround yourself while the moon is new, and when it’s full. Sometimes seeing the beauty of the moon is calming in itself.๐ŸŒ

To find out when the next new moon๐ŸŒ‘ and full moon๐ŸŒ• will be, click here.

Just try grounding once, I dare you! Let me know how it goes!
