This is the life of a former alcohol loving fat girl who never left Brooklyn transformed into a health-conscious world traveler... who still loves alcohol and keeps Brooklyn as her home base. My goal in life is to be the Black, Female version of Anthony Bourdain.

I used this Amy Cuddy Ted Talk as the theme for my Bar Method Class today.

Focused in on posture and engaging the postural muscles and creating ‘Power Poses’ throughout the workout:

  • Standing Seat Facing the bar and holding onto it with a wide underhanded grip
  • High curl, letting go and placing your hands on your waist with elbows out to the side, also letting and raising their arms into a ‘pride’ position. 

I got to teach them an awesome class while giving them some extra confidence to tackle the week.

"Cheesy" Turkey Bacon Cauliflower Biscuits

  • 4 Cups Cauliflower Florets (finely chopped)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (or to taste depending on how cheesy you want to go)
  • Uncured Turkey Bacon Cooked and finely chopped
  • Olive Oil for sautéing 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Use a Food Processor to finely chop the cauliflower

Oil a pan and sauté the cauliflower until moist. The add eggs, almond flour, nutritional yeast, and turkey bacon. Continue to sauté for a few minutes. 

Drop clumps of the mixture onto a baking sheet. Place in the oven and cook until golden. Can take 45 minutes or more. 

Remove and let cool.

(Because it’s cauliflower, its a lot more crumbly than a regular biscuit so be cautious when you are picking it up. I used a fork to eat it. It’s still awesome. Next time i’m going to try adding guar gum or xanthum gum to maybe bind it more)

Project Walk-In Closet begins!!
It’s about to look like Bloomingdale’s in my place.

Nike Pro Bra Pop Up in NYC. Champagne, Clothes, and Kale Juice. 

Picked up a Single-ladies style piece too. No idea what to wear it for, but it looks hot. 

The next morning, we started a few steps from my hotel and behind the night market. We visited the nearby Buddhist temples near the mouth of the Duong Dong river including the Cua temple at the Dinh Cau Rock. This temple is a dedication to the goddess of the sea. All the fisherman stop here prior to their journeys. We climbed rocks and watched as fisherman reeled in their catch of the morning.

Next was a visit to a plantation which grows Phu Quoc’s other biggest export aside from fish sauce—black pepper. The plants were high and the taste was something fresher than I’ve had anywhere.

 

After a few black pepper purchases, we toured the Hung Long Tu or Su Muon Pagoda. It was a bit of a hike uphill to the pagoda, and once you reached, you’re greeted by a big Buddha statue surrounded by children.

 

You follow the paths and visit the numerous temples around the property as well as all the natural beauty it’s encased in.

Reaching the top you get amazing views of Phu Quoc.

 Upon leaving this sanctuary, the monks provided us fresh fruit grown on the land including papaya and longan.

This was a great snack just before our trek through the beautiful Tranh Stream.

The water flowing over the rocks created these peaceful sounds that you wish you can just capture.

This trek was my last adventure in Phu Quoc, an Island I’m glad I was able to see before the tourists take over.
