AUGUST GARDEN HARVEST! | Rare and Heirloom Varieties!

Today I'm sharing a garden harvest from a couple weeks ago in August. The peppers and tomatoes are starting to kick into gear, especially the jalapenos and purple Buena Mulata peppers! There are also a lot of peppers that will be ready to harvest soon, so stay tuned for those!

For a point of reference, I'm in Virginia in Zone 7. All of the plants in the garden we either seeded directly or started from seed inside, excluding a few basil plants. I like to grow a lot heirloom varieties, which means lots of interesting shapes and colors!

VARIETIES MENTIONED

- Sungold tomato

- Craig's Grande Jalapeno pepper

- Travel Strain Jalapeno pepper

- Beuna Mulata pepper

- Jimmy Nardello pepper

- Chinese Five Color pepper

- Purple Bumblebee tomato

Weight Watchers has a Diet App for Kids and It's a Huge Problem | Registered Dietitian

Kurbo is a new diet app for kids from WW - formerly Weight Watchers. When I first heard about Kurbo, I had concerns, but after spending time exploring the app and its various features, it's worse than I ever imagined. The main concept of the app - targeting children ages 8-17 for weight loss and having them track their food with a traffic light system - is a cause for concern all on its own, but things only get worse from there. Here's what I think about the app as a registered dietitian and someone who works with kids and families to build healthy eating habits, as well as some things we can do instead of giving kids Kurbo.

Healthy Grocery HAUL! What a Dietitian Buys at the Store!

Ever wonder what a dietitian or nutritionist buys at the grocery store? Today, I'm showing you! In this video I'm showing you my healthy grocery haul from a recent shopping trip! This haul is a great example of a typical shopping trip for me in the summer. This time of year I'm getting a lot of my food (mostly produce) from my local farmers market and my garden, so that means my grocery shopping is a little bit different. I'm shopping for two people, me and my husband, but I think you'll find this helpful (or at least interesting) no matter how many people you're grocery shopping for in your house.

JULY GARDEN UPDATE + FIRST HARVEST!

It's time for the first garden update of the year! I usually don't wait until July to do my first real garden video of the year, but this year is a little different. I haven't been able to devote as much time to the garden and I took a little break from making videos, so here we are! Despite the fact that the garden is a little smaller than usual, there are still a lot of exciting things happening! Tomatoes and peppers are growing (probably my two favorite garden items) and there are even some things to harvest! I've also had a little trouble with a groundhog who wants to eat all of the plants and leave nothing for me...

For a point of reference, I'm in Virginia in Zone 7. All of the plants in the garden we either seeded directly or started from seed inside. I like to grow a lot heirloom varieties, which means lots of interesting shapes and colors!

VARIETIES MENTIONED

- Sungold tomato

- Traveler's Strain Jalapeno pepper

- Buena Mulata pepper

- Fish pepper

JUNGKOOK FLEW OVER US! BTS Speak Yourself Tour Metlife + NYC Pop-Up Shop

Jasen and I went to see BTS at Metlife in New Jersey (Day 1) and wanted to bring you along! We also went to New York City to check out the BTS pop-up shop and visit the Line Friends store in Times Square for BT21 merch. We had so much fun seeing the BTS Speak Yourself tour and enjoying it with so many other ARMYs! I hope you enjoy this vlog of the concert and our trip!

Healthy Road Trip Travel Snacks! On Our Way to BTS!

We're going to see BTS! We also have to drive to get there. That means it's time to talk about road trip travel snacks! When you're on a road trip, it's a good idea to have some snacks packed. You can always buy food on the road, but there are a few reasons why you might want to pack some food too. Maybe you have a tight schedule and won't have time to stop for food. Maybe your route doesn't have a lot of convenient food options. Maybe you don't want to spend money on food that is more expensive than what you can pack yourself. Maybe you just want to be prepared in case you find yourself stuck in traffic or you have to take an unexpected detour. Whatever your reason, packing some snacks with you is a good idea. The good thing about packing road trip snacks is that you have lots of room to pack whatever you want and you don't have the restrictions on liquids that you do when flying. In this video, I'm sharing some healthy road trip travel snacks. These are all easy to pack and you probably have several of them in your kitchen already! I hope these road trip snack ideas help you when you're packing for your next trip!

Making a Spicy Korean Stir-Fry and Testing New Kitchen Tools!

Korean chicken stir-fry is called dakgalbi (닭갈비) and it was a recipe I really wanted to try. So much so, that I bought some new kitchen equipment to make it happen. I needed a new pan that was the right size and shape and I needed a gas table top burner so we could cook our dakgalbi right on the table in front us. So, in addition to seeing our new food adventure, you'll also get to see us try out these new kitchen tools for the first time and try to not burn the house down in the process.

I've Used a Menstrual Cup for 7 Years + Tips for Newbies

When I first bought my Diva Cup I didn't know anyone who even knew what a menstrual cup was, much less used one. Now, menstrual cups are becoming more and more popular and you may be thinking of trying one yourself. In this video, I'm sharing my experience using a menstrual cup for 7 years. I want to share my experience as a long-time menstrual cup user because a lot of the videos about menstrual cups are first impressions videos. While these types of videos are great for letting you know what the initial experience is like, I think it's also helpful to hear about menstrual cups from someone who has been using a Diva Cup for a long time and has worked through some of the beginner struggles and concerns. So if you're wondering if you should try a menstrual cup or want some tips from a long-time user, this one's for you! I'm covering the main reasons why I love my Diva Cup so much after all this time and going over some tips for new menstrual cup users including how to insert a menstrual cup, menstrual cups folds and how to remove a menstrual cup. I also discuss menstrual cup leaking and emptying a menstrual cup in public.

Seasoning my new steel skillet with flaxseed oil! Let's see how this goes...

I just got a new steel paella pan that needs to be seasoned and I'm bringing you along for the process! This is my first time seasoning a steel skillet, as I have only seasoned cast iron pans in the past, and it's also my first time using flaxseed oil to season a pan. I have tried coconut oil and lard before for seasoning and, honestly, the results were just ok, so I'm excited to see how the flaxseed oil works out! I've heard that flaxseed oil is the best fat for seasoning steel and seasoning cast iron and I'm looking forward to finally putting it to the test myself. I hope you enjoy this half vlog, half tutorial as I work on this kitchen project!
