Most things in life aren’t black and white. Luckily, Oreos are! Oreos are definitely my go-to snack when I’m cramming study sessions or just want a quick sugar fix! Double stuffed Oreos only have 1.8x cream as normal Oreos so original Oreos are the way to go!

Didn’t realize how much I love fried eggs until I found a hairband and a T-shirt with the fried egg figure. I also had a pair of earrings which I left in eco.

It just so happens that I have a minion shirt and bananas. I would’ve done PPAP if I had a pineapple:)

 Vitamin D is crucial to our health (our bones, immune system, inflammatory response and blood supply amongst others) and it’s a vitamin you can get from the sun or in scarce amounts from some foods. But, in Canada, we can only synthesise it from the sun between April to September, so make sure to take your supplements to avoid deficiency! Smoothie bowls are my favourite thing to eat on any summer day or during winter to trick my mind into thinking I’m at the beach! They’re super versatile, you can literally add anything you want in it or on top (peanut butter, chocolate, more fruits(!), seed and nuts, granola…) so throw in whatever your heart desires and enjoy!

Fun Fact: The fact that I already have a matching color outfit and food photo shows my love for ice cream and food in general.

A tiny little “corny” thing about me: I love everything made from corn. I could make everything from corn: corn milk- Susu Jagung, corn cake, corn meringue, corn soup, Vietnamese corn pudding-Chè Bắp, corn milk tea, etc. Sounds strange? Hmm… don’t try to search up for recipes because it is not easy to find one. Contact me if you want a recipe and become a part of the corn-lover community! ❤️🌽 Fun fact: In Asia, corn is not only an ingredient for savoury dishes, but also for baking, dessert plates, and confectioneries.

Fun fact: Okra was one of my favourite foods growing up! They are full of many nutrients, such as magnesium, potassium, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin A, folate and dietary fibre! Another name for this unique vegetable is “ladies’ fingers”!

Fun fact:  “There is this famous claim that says that grapes taste like sour patch kids when frozen. They don’t, but I still eat them like candy.”

I could tell you all the benefits of blueberries (huge antioxidants, lower risk of heart disease and cancer, have anti-inflammatory properties) INSTEAD I'll just tell you that blåbær is the Danish word for blueberry. I don't speak Danish, I don't even know how to pronounce that word but hey, now you know :)  Oh and my fav' way to eat them is on top of smoothie bowls/yogurt with granola! YUM!

Fun Fact: One of the reasons why fall is my favourite season (besides my birthday happening in fall) is SOUPS! I love soups! Besides being VERY fashionable, they are comforting, very yummy, perfect for those chilly and cozy weather days, AND they are versatile: you can put basically anything in a soup without going wrong! Plus, they are a good way to use the leftover vegetables that are getting forgotten in the back of the fridge. And if you think I wasn’t convincing enough, soups are actually very healthy as they retain all the vitamins and minerals that would normally leak in the cooking water/broth and get discarded. When you eat a bowl of soup, you also eat the broth, so you get the full nutrient-content of your food! BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE! Soups are also very hydrating: Not only they contain water, but they also contain the perfect amount of electrolytes to help your body retain moisture. If you’re still not convinced, I don’t know what to tell you…

Did you know that since bell peppers have seeds and come from flowering plants they are fruits and not vegetables? Or that a red bell pepper can produce more than 300% of your daily requirement of vitamin C? Does any of this ring a bell? Bell peppers are a superior and under-rated veggie. They come in all sorts of colours, sizes and flavours. I’m so excited to be your DHNUS’ Event Coord this year!  Hopefully, DHNUS will bring flavour and colour to your life too!

Fun Fact: Did you know that both coffee and cacao help keep our brain and cognition sharp as we age? In fact, the flavonoids that are found in cacao help protect against neuroinflammation. They, along with the caffeine in one delicious cup of joe, also promote learning and memory. So next time you’re cramming for that final exam, tell yourself that an extra cup of coffee and chocolate will help you acquire that turbo brain power ;)

My favourite season is fall, and one of the reasons for that is pumpkins! Not only are they cute decorations, but I love cooking with them. Pumpkin pie, pumpkins soup, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pasta, pumpkin loaf, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pancakes... I’ll eat pretty much anything with pumpkin in it!

Broccoli has more vitamin C than oranges, more iron than a chicken drumstick, & almost as much potassium as bananas. I don’t condone San Francisco’s broccoli pizza, but just eat it with literally everything else!

Just loving fall life way too much - especially because pumpkins finally receive all the love they deserve! Whether it be in soups, desserts, in a latte or simply roasted, pumpkins are so versatile and can add, in addition to their beautiful color, a whole bunch of nutrients to your meals that will help you fight the colder weather. I must also admit that I love pumpkin because I think they look pretty cute!

Did you know that starch content is key when looking for the best cell service provider? Many are familiar with the banana phone, but why not switch up your style and try out a sweet potato?! At this point it seems you can use this spray-tanned root veg for just about anything, especially in the kitchen for grain-free alternatives such as toast, gnocchi, pizza crusts, pancakes, and more… Feel free to reach out if you have a sweet potato in need!
