Your tagline mentions your recipes are 70% healthy and 30% indulgent — how did your journey with food start?
Everything started ever since the pandemic. My makeup career totally stopped. Instead of continuing to feel stressful and depressed, I decided to heal myself with food. I started to create my own ritual of life by cooking, taking photos, videos and recipe-sharing on my IG account. Most of my posts are about my healthy daily eats. Sometimes I do indulge myself with my favorite foods too. That’s why my tagline mentioned 70% healthy and 30% indulgent.
Any tips to your viewers on living a health-conscious life?
There is such a strong connection between happiness and food. Healthy eating can be fun and creative, but don't forget to indulge yourself with your favorite food every now and then. Be happy and wise with the food choices you make. You deserve to nourish your body with the nutrients it needs to lead a healthy life.
Personal tips for your recipe viewers when working with Matcha recipes.
As the health benefits of Matcha are endless, it's definitely great to consume it in your daily meals!
How did you come up with Matcha Choco Tart recipe?
I had a very nice cheese tart in a café. While I was thinking it will be nicer for not being too sweet and maybe some more flavour. Then this idea just appears in my mind, so I decided to try it.
This month’s theme is about first love. Tell us why you chose AJISAI / Matcha as your first love.
AJISAI / Matcha Powder never disappoints me with all my matcha creations. I think the addition of the AJISAI / Matcha powder is just perfect for those who loves dessert but don’t like it to be too sweet. Full of flavours and satisfaction in one bite.
