Be a Wok Star! Wok Cooking Class with Eleanor Hoh – Miami, FL – The SoFla Sage

The South Florida Sage

Fun fact: I almost went the chef route. In high school, I enrolled in the Academy of Culinary Arts, which was a special program (integrated with the usual high school curriculum) designed to prepare students for a career in the culinary arts. We learned skills in an industrial kitchen. Needless to say, this was not your average home economics class. Fast forward to college, I fell in love with nutrition science when I took my first nutrition course. Today, I write about both food and nutrition. However, I’ve never really learned about (authentic) Wok cookery before, so when celebrated instructor and blogger Eleanor Hoh invited me to take one of her classes, I was excited to check it out! Pictures from the class:

Vegan Meals at Green Bar Kitchen in Fort Lauderdale – The SoFla Sage

The South Florida Sage

Happy February! Was your New Year resolution to go vegan? Mine wasn’t, BUT I’m always aiming for balance and that means incorporating more plant-based meals into my diet. For those who don’t want to go fully vegan, I recommend taking “Meatless Monday” one step further by choosing a vegetarian or vegan meal once per day. Dining at Green Bar Kitchen can help you meet this goal. After shutting down their test kitchen on Galt Ocean Mile, Green Bar Kitchen continues to offer all vegan fare at their flagship location on SE 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale. I recently visited for an early dinner:

I was fighting off a cold during my January visit so I got this orange juice for an immune boosting effect, it has cayenne pepper in it too – ZING.

Crab Cakes – chickpea, heart of palm, veganaise, parsley, kelp, scallion, spice blend, arugula, pickled onions.

Keto Recipe: Grilled Chicken & Avocado Salad with Moon Cheese from Publix – South Florida

The South Florida Sage

Time to switch it up! Today on the blog I’m taking a break from restaurants and offering up a simple recipe that you can make at home. Don’t worry, it contains CHEESE!

moon cheese recipe

I was really excited to find out about Moon Cheese because I’m always looking for protein rich snacks to eat between meals while I’m at work. Many of the pre-packaged snacks available on the market today such as crackers, chips, you name it, are full of empty carbs. Empty carbs can contribute to weight gain and blood sugar spikes, especially when eaten in excess without other macronutrients such as protein and fat.I also love the convenient aspect of Moon Cheese. These don’t require any refrigeration so they are perfect to take on a road trip or on an airplane. Per serving, the three flavors that I tried contain 0 g sugar, 4 or 5 g protein, 5 g…
