As with most of the meals I make, this is one that changes slightly each time due to whatever ingredients I have in the fridge. It is a simple and flavorful meal that I do not get tired of making.
This round includes bell pepers, mushrooms, a dash of tumeric and sliced green olives! Other common choices of mine include split cherry tomatoes, spinach and sometimes even sunflower seeds! (Weird? Not sure, but I love the texture it adds! )
Time: Approximately 30 minutes
Gyoza is one of my favorite things to eat when I am back home in the USA. I have always wanted to give it a try myself, from scratch. Before attempting I watched at least 10 videos on YouTube, and picked out the common steps. I highly encourage others to give it a try if you love gyoza as much as me! The possibilities are endless when it comes to the filling. My first time I made a traditional vegan filling, and the second time I used whatever I had.
Here is the video that I feel is the simplest explanation on how to make these beautiful little wrappers :) It is easier to see it than to read about it.
Here is another beautiful video that explains the process of making the filling.
As you can see in the videos above, there are 2 main ways to cook the gyoza. Boiling, and pan frying/steaming. I prefer pan frying them!
For my first recipe on my newly redesigned website, I submit a homemade experiment done right :)
Last week, I baked a butternut squash for the first time in my life in an attempt to make squash "spaghetti". I overcooked it so it came out more like mashed potatoes, but was still very tasty! That day, I only ate half of the squash and I saved the other half for an attempt at butternut squash soup.
I had been looking at a few recipes so had an idea of what I wanted to do, but I also did not want to go to the store and get any new ingredients. Plus, I am a big fan of using what I have in the fridge. I had half a head of cauliflower left over from when I made buffalo cauliflower poppers and califlower steaks.
So I threw it all together with the following rough measurements, and it turned out decent enough for me to eat it all :)
For the first addition to the workouts category, I would like to share one of my old videos of an at home workout I did while living and training in Serbia. Enjoy! :)
So for those who have been following along for a while, I have occasionally been doing monthly fitness challenges on my personal instagram account. Well, last year I decided to make a dedicated account just for them!

We are a few days into our February Abs Challenge, but I highly encourage you to join in! :)
