Hi everyone, Joan here!
So… I recently switched over to a gluten-free way of eating. Why? Because it turns out, verified by my doctor, that I have a gluten sensitivity and is the reason why I have had skin issues for years. I’m not gonna go into too much details on that but it’s been about 3 weeks that I have not had bread, pasta, noodles or anything that has any wheat in it. So what does this mean for my ramen blog?!
When I announced some years ago that I have also switched to a plant-based diet, people asked the same question. Not to worry, there are still options out there and I have experimented on my own on how to make a gluten-free vegan ramen. Check out this recipe that I have made, inspired by Silverlake Ramen’s Vegetable Ramen recipe with a few of my own adjustments. You can do this gluten-free or with wheat noodles.
Gluten-free Vegan Ramen
Hello friends, Joan here!
We are living in strange times, aren’t we? Now that we’re all stuck at home, I hope everyone is using their time to rest, practicing healthy habits, but also being creative and learning. This is definitely a good time for me to catch up on blogging!
Before businesses started shutting down and people going on self-quarantine due to COVID-19, my husband and I were in the Covina area for a meeting. Since we were out there and I’ve been eyeing a ramen spot in Covina for a while on Instagram, I took this as an opportunity to try Artisan Ramen Kono.
I love simple menus
It’s been a while… but I thought I’d write a quick post about something that got me sooooo excited.
I tried SoulCycle for the very first time after being invited by my friend Matt for almost a year now. But that wasn’t what I was actually excited about.
I forgot my workout socks… don’t judge me.
Hey everyone! Joan here.
I know it has been a while, but I’m back in the blogging world. So much has changed for me since my last blog post, hence why I have not written. To make it short, I moved out of Santa Monica (not too far, still on the Westside,) became a vegetarian, and have not been eating a lot of ramen. My dietary decisions was based solely on having a healthier lifestyle but it did not necessarily mean that ramen would be completely out of the picture!
Very few places I have been to have great vegetarian ramen, and I have yet to find a vegan one! However, I found a vegan spot two weeks ago during a road trip to San Francisco.
After an entire day of San Francisco-ing, (Andytown Coffee, Haight Ashbury, Painted Ladies, Mrs. Doubtfire House, Palace of the Arts, Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street) we stumbled upon Shizen Vegan Sushi Bar & Izakaya in the Mission District. Although we originally planned on trying the sushi, I could not resist when I saw ramen on the menu.
