I just made these pancakes for breakfast and they’re quick, easy, protein-packed and most of all, vegan.

November is World Vegan month and many countries around the globe have begun celebrating it through vegan festivals. Finally, the Philippines’ time has come and we too, get to come together for two weekends of movement workshops, talks and vegan food.
This year’s theme is all about Climate Change, a battle we have been losing for nearly half a century now. If you listened to Leonardo DiCaprio’s speech when he won the Oscar for Best Actor, you probably caught “Climate Change is REAL…” For the longest time, we have been dismissing the idea because this phenomenon never posted immediate harm…until now.

First, there were smoothies, then there were cold-pressed juices, smoothie bowls and a whole lot of others in between. I LOVE all of these but one I’m currently crazy about is the tarty vinegar beverage I now use to replace my morning coffee. Continue reading Healthy Vinegar Beverages are the Next Big Thing
Marie Gonzalez proves that vegans can have their cake and eat it too. Continue reading Love Lokal: Kitchen Revolution Cakes
A vegan cafe that could potentially be a favorite for non-vegans has just opened in Makati.
Green Bar is known for their delicious handhelds and just recently, their vegan doughnut holes. Continue reading Green Bar Opens Cafe in Makati
I am a huge fan of coconuts. I go crazy over the long list of uses and benefits of coconut oil and the light, refreshing flavour of anything with coconut water, meat or milk.
Cocolatto is a local brand that started with a purpose. Sherwin Gope, founder of Cocolatto, tells me he wanted to start something that would make everyone happy. Of course, who wouldn’t be happy with ice cream? But when he said everyone, he meant every one. “I wanted to give a chance to people who thought they’d never have ice cream again,” he says. These include vegans, diabetics, lactose and gluten intolerants, etc. Continue reading Love Lokal: Cocolatto Dairy-free Ice Cream

I’m not a traveller, but neither do I consider myself a tourist. I am fortunate to be able to get away from the city every now and then but extra fortunate when I fly out of the country for work and then get to squeeze in a short holiday.
I breathe new experiences, I hear different languages and I get to interact with various people. Continue reading Slow Travelling [Photo Diary]
A couple of weeks before this month began, I found myself in a slump. It was the lowest I’ve felt in a long time and I felt frustrated when, after sitting in silence for hours, I still couldn’t shut out all the noise in my head. Don’t get me wrong, I couldn’t really meditate for hours. It was sort of a purging I like to practice, just letting all the ideas run through my head without my notebook to take notes and taking the risk of bidding what could be a few good ideas goodbye. Continue reading Whole Again: Slowing Down at the IASIS Health & Wholeness Center
It’s been forever since I had anything under Pretty Darn Fit “Make”. I’m going to be honest and say the food I prepare everyday is often a huge experiment and I fail to write down the ingredients and measurements when I hit the jackpot with my recipes.
So here’s one that’s really easy to do with ingredients you’ll often find in your fridge or kitchen. It’s very basic and if you’re feeling adventurous yourself, go ahead and add your own twist to it.
I’d love to know about them, so if you do re-create this sandwich and post them online, tag me (@nkitorres on Twitter and Instagram, or Pretty Darn Fit on Facebook) and use the hashtag #PrettyDarnFit or comment below with the recipe you want to share. 😉 Continue reading Ridiculously Easy Vegan Tofu BBQ Sandwich
