I’ve always tried to keep a balance and healthier lifestyle but moving back to be closer to my family has made it a little tough. Filipinos love their carbs and deep fried everything.
So when I decided to pave my way into the entrepreneur life, I was expecting to be able to go back into my healthier routine. Portioned cooked meals, more vegetables and less… rice. Nope. I found myself being more busy trying to build my business, run my blog while trying I also maintain a social life so that I don’t go insane.
I bought food that was easy to make and great for being on the go. Which meant, it wasn’t always the healthiest items on my shopping list. But the last thing on my mind is trying to spend hours at the grocery store.

Having to grow up and live in Vancouver, BC all my life – Japanese food has always been my number 1 go to. However, the only thing I will say that I have issues having is raw fish sushi. I know I know, being Filipino I should love eating fish – which I did at one point but now something with the taste and texture has leaned me off it. I still eat seafood like shellfish but fish is always the last option for me to eat.
From a number of times I’ve flown down to Santa Ana to visit J, not once have I noticed Cauldron Ice Cream until recently. I actually came across this ice cream place from a food Instagrammer friend, Marissa who posted this post and I was curious as to where it was!
Turns out, it was literally a few blocks away from J’s place. And all I could think of was, How did I miss this? I could’ve come here so many times by now!
One day I randomly came across a joint called Boo’s Philly Cheesesteaks on social media and immediately the photos made me DROOL. I personally have never had cheesesteak before so I had to ask J if he would want to have some while we stayed a night in downtown LA.
We originally made plans to go to the Griffith Observatory the following day so we decided to hit up the Fountain Ave location (since it was on the way)! If you’re not actively looking for the location, it can be easily missed as it looks like a normal mom and pops food spot.
It’s been a week since RE:GRUB finally opened in Edmonton! RE:GRUB has been on Calgary’s popularity list due to their beautifully crafted milkshake that is Instagram worthy!
The menu consists of Burgers, Fries and of course, their milkshakes. All the items used in their menu are made from scratch and the ingredients are sourced locally. Buns & doughnuts are made fresh every morning, fries are hand-cut, and every day they grind their own meat for their burgers!
*Disclosure: I was invited to dine at Ernest’s Dining Room. Views expressed in this post are solely mine. I will always provide my 100% honest and transparent opinion, the complimentary dinner did not impact my feedback.
Since the 1960s, NAIT’s dining room has been a huge part of the Culinary Arts and Professional Food Studies. This allowed the 2nd year students to have hands-on experience in crafting delicious food and providing top quality experience. In 2005, it was renovated to provide a more modern feel while still holding on to its quality.
This is when the dining room was renamed to Ernest’s.
Location: 8216 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB
No really, there’s a reason why you need to come early to have some MEAT. Not only does it get busy super fast but hours are very limited due to the fact that they smoke their own BBQ Meat during the day and serve at night.
