happyhealthylatina Right before the true eggplant season (which for NYC is August to October) you will begin seeing these beauties appropriately called Fairy Tale Eggplant.

These majestic mini eggplants are creamy, delicious + Caramelize and sauté beautifully in a pan. Can't wait to split them lengthwise and do a take on Dominican Verengena Guisada. Different locations have different points of seasonality and availability. Make sure to check what's in season in YOUR area. For NYC I will always refer you to the GROWNYC.org website to see what's available.

happyhealthylatina This @blossomdujour Spicy Green bowl is everything!! Marinated kale (perfect lemony taste), turmeric infused rice, spicy black beans, corn, buffalo chickn + Cesar dressing on the side. It's like a Caribbean health flavor bomb you need in your life ..... I love using turmeric to naturally color rice, scrambles, pasteles, masas + smoothies. Such a versatile healing ingredient. .... This dish is listed as a BDJ favorite on their menu and now it's mine too.

happyhealthylatina Added some mango and peach to the salsa to cool it off a little from the heat of the jalapeño. Taste like a gazpacho will work just fine with chips later.
When you make fresh salsa vs store bought it's a simple act but it allows you to get the full benefits of the organic natural fruits and vegetables. #love #simple #yum #mango #peach #salsafresca #summer #beachsnacks #lowcal #vidasana #sabroso #healthyfoodporn #nosugar #medicinal #vegansofig #veganlatin #veganfoodporn #instagood

happyhealthylatina I grew up eating Casabe (cassava bread) with my grandma so when I spotted this new snack today spotted that I'm really happy about! Healthy Yuca Chips what. These are pop casava chips.
Non gmo, vegan, 2.5 grams of fat per serving which is about half a bag and it has only 3 ingredients. Bringing a bag with me to the beach perfect for guac + salsa dipping. #love #betteroptions #bethechange #yuca #cassava #popchips #fitlatina #latina #vegansofig #veganfoodporn #veganlatin #betteroptions #vidasana #healthcoach #eatclean #latina #dominican

happyhealthylatina Good things come to those who wait and I waited 20 minutes for this @cinnamonsnail Chipotle seitan burrito w marinated kale, scrambled tofu, jalapeños and chipotle mayo.
Lots of protein, tons of flavor, organic clean ingredients. Thank you lawd for the availability of this kind of food. I will always endorse these businesses and establishments whenever possible. #love #foodgasm #treatyoself #vegansofig #veganlatin #cleaneating #tgif #cinnamonsnail #healthyfoodporn #seitan #kale #vidasana #veganfoodporn #healthyfoodporn #sabroso #kale #protein #ilovefood

happyhealthylatina Another day another serving of Triple protein eggless scramble this time toasted and pressed. Tofu scrambles are so easy to put together and a great way to throw in extra nutritional goodies in the pan.
Yesterday I talked about using turmeric one of the most powerful anti inflammatories for natural coloring + black salt to achieve the eggy taste. Today I want to talk about NOOCH! Nutritional Yeast which I've talked about on this account several times before. It helps you to achieve a cheesy taste (so good on popcorn) and if you use the @Braggs brand, which I do it's also boosted with vitamin B12. So in this one simple meal you've hit not only your Macros (protein, good fat + carbs) but more importantly to me you've hit big nutrient intake goals.

Count your blessings not calories + remember to strive for progress not perfection. Let's have a happy healthy Wednesday #bethegirl #love #bethechange #betteroptions #tips #tricks #veganfoodporn #vegansofig #veganlatin #veganfoodporn #eatfresh #eatclean #fitfam #mealprep #meatless #fitlatina #cleaneating #foodporn #foodgasm #healthcoach #breakfast

happyhealthylatina First up this morning my triple protein eggless scramble. Which has creamy black beans, sprouted organic tofu + kale w/ organic turmeric for coloring,
Peppers + black salt for that eggy taste (this is key if you want an egg replica)

Putting this on sprouted Ezekiel toast w/ two tbsp of guacamole for a creamy spicy kick. Try mashed avocado, guac or hummus next time as nutritious creamy spread instead of cheese. #yum #love #healthyfoodporn #healthcoach #healyourself #proteinpacked #frijoles #scramble #eatfresh #cleaneating #vidasana #veganlatin #veganfoodporn #turmeric #fitlatina #homemade #healthcoach #sabroso #foodporn #foodgasm #veganlatin #sofritoqueen

happyhealthylatina Thankful for the blessing that is a new day + this extremely refreshing green mama.

When you juice you take care of most of your dietary needs in the vegetable department in one swoop. Of course I prefer to eat vegetables all day long in my juice and on my plate but I can't stress enough what a great starting point this is for your day and digestive system!
You can boost them with all sorts of added goodness like hemp or spirulina if you want more protein, reishi mushroom or turmeric for fighting inflammation or maca for energy. The combos are really endless.

Now let's have a happy healthy week and be the change we wish to see in this world and on our plates! #love #bethechange #myfatiscrying #vidasana #todayisagoodday #healthcoach #healyourself #healthyfoodporn #juiceprep #fitfam #juicehead #yum #vegansofig #veganfoodporn #veganlatin #betteroptions #bethechange #diseasefree #cancerfighter #yesyoucan #juicehead #rawsome

happyhealthylatina Fresh roasted garlic hummus topped off w/ Mediterranean olive oil + red pepper flakes. So easy to make, you won't want store bought after!

creamy roasted garlic hummus:
3 cloves roasted garlic (375 for 60 min)
2 cups chickpeas
2 tbsp tahini
Juice of 1 organic lemon.
1 teaspoon Himalayan pink sea salt.
No shelf stabilizers or preservatives, rich creamy taste. This will last in your fridge for 3-4 days the fresh lemon juice helps to preserve it naturally. #hummus #homemade #fresh #roasted #garlic #vidasana #mealprep #healyourself #healthcoach #protein #diseasefree #eatyourselfwell #fitfam #vegansofig #veganfoodporn #veganlatin #preservativefree #natural #eatfresh #nogfilter

happyhealthylatina That moment when you feel all the flavor rising from the pot. You watch healing ingredients come together to create something reminiscent of the flavors you love + grew up with but natures medicinal touch.

happyhealthylatina Now that juices are done it's time to Prep once cook thrice! Making some gut healing coconut sofrito chickpea curry w/ chickpea miso, sweet pot + kale, lots of sofrito of course, fresh hummus + coconut cilantro brown rice.
Think about how far you can stretch your ingredients into different meals. Meal prepping this way is great on your time + budget. You can also see the composition of good fats, proteins, carbs + vitamins you will consume in a day clearly! #yum #mealprep #justdoit #simple #sofrito #coconut #chickpea #carbs #protein #goodfats #omegas #hummus #vidasana #veganfoodporn #vegansofig #veganlatin #sofritoqueen #eatfresh #fitlatina #fitfam #familia #moms #tips #bethegirl #betteroptions #protein #yesyoucan

happyhealthylatina So fresh and so green green! Today's score. Among my fave are the seasons first zucchini, potatoes and onions that were just dug from the ground this morning!! Doesn't get better than that. Fresh food at the peak of its freshness + nutrient dense. The organic chard + kale were each 2.50 a bunch. Are we using that NY pride Apples -Zucchini sheet to see what's in season in your state now? It's seriously one of the best ways to save.
This stash was 25 bucks. When you come to the realization of just how precious we each are you will find a way to nourish and treat your self the best.

happyhealthylatina Harvesting herbs from my window tonight for dinner + fresh Sofrito. What a freaking blessing! They say money doesn't grow on trees I beg to differ...
I'm a New York City Girl, who grew up eating a S.A.D. Diet. Anything is possible and our magic comes from our ability to transform, learn, grow and change!

I remember when the planters looked like they had nothing in them because the seedlings were so small. Getting excited for Culinary school. A little over a month to go. Can't wait to see what I'll be inspired to or learn to grow next might finally have a baby green thumb. @srimati doing what I can!

myveganplate ↠Coconut Banana Tart↞ Tropical fruit coulis and buckwheat crust. I’ve probably said it a million times that I don’t really care for fruity desserts (there’s been a couple exceptions) but this was really good! Very banana-y and the coconut type whip on it was 🏼 Went to a soft opening of Chavela tonight! The space is cute and quaint.

myveganplate ↠Chipotle Mac n Cheese↞ Gluten free quinoa elbows, cashew cheese sauce, walnut chorizo crumble, arugula, cherry tomato. This was spicy and may have been my favorite dish. The chorizo kinda tasted like bacon and the smokiness with the chipotle and the creamy of the cheese and, oh man, it was just so good. Probably should've picked off the arugula, but no time, had to eat it.
