Isaiah 6:3 And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” I used to think Heaven would be boring. When I read the Bible, it says we would worship God forever. My 14-year old self was not excited about that. (haha!) Well, […]

Hey there! If you’ve been a reader of my blog for years and years, thank you for sticking with me. If you’re new, welcome! My blog has changed so much throughout the years. I started in 2011, writing and reviewing books until 2014. In 2015, I moved to Sydney, Australia and mostly wrote about my […]
Relationship Reconciliation Advice #1 Firstly, I’ve decided to write this article/post not because I’m an expert when it comes to these type of things. I’m only 27 years old, not old enough to be a grandparent yet… because you know, our grandparents know a lot and have experienced a lot in life to be considered […]
Learning a new language is not easy. At all. I don’t know what I was thinking three months ago when I decided it is a good idea to learn a dead language. Yes, I’m learning a dead language. Koine greek. My precise reason was ‘to learn to translate the New Testament of the Bible’, by […]
The following are my thoughts from a month ago… July 15, 2017. I’ve been so sick this week (physically) and lonely (emotionally) and am overcome by this utter sense of unfinished unsettling feeling… I couldn’t pinpoint what is it. Have you ever experienced this? It’s like being hit by an arrow but you don’t […]
Hello guys! . So, I have to be honest. I haven’t been in the book world for a loooong long time. I mean, I do try to keep up every now through youtube, and through following my fave authors on social media. But that’s it. Better than nothing right? . ANYWAY… this post is about […]
What did I think of this book? I think this is the most emotional, honest and heartbreaking book Colleen Hoover has ever written yet. There’s too much emotion I could feel at the same time: fear, elation, hope, expectancy, sadness, empathy… that I did not even cry a single tear. And I always […]

Dating apps has been a subject of talk around my peers in the past months (when you’re in your 20’s/30’s amIright?! Lol), then I realized something… A friend was sharing of a friend who’s been dating a lot for the past three or so years through dating apps, and she still hasn’t found anyone to […]
There was a shift in me when I truly and finally realized that my life will never ever be stable, from the world’s perspective anyway. And I cry as I write this, it’s beautiful. When I said YES to my Jesus, it wasn’t a YES to a stable perfect human life, where everything is sunshine […]

Watching the “Good Place” tv series made realize how hard it is to be a good person these days. At one point in Season 2(?), they mentioned the point system they followed to determine if you go to the Good place or the Bad place. One hundred years ago, it was probably easier to do […]

FIVE PLANT-BASED VEGAN MYTHS BUSTED!

So many people are shifting in to the Vegan lifestyle nowadays. From 0.4% in 2015, it has then spiked to 6%, that’s 600% increase! (Global Data)
Despite that amazing growth, many people are still hesitant to take the plunge or try Veganism. Why? Well, let’s look at 5 common myths about the Vegan lifestyle, specifically the Plant-based vegan lifestyle. Let’s debunk it!
Number 1.
Becoming vegan doesn’t mean you don’t get enough protein. It is one of those “facts” that the meat industry would like us to think. Broccoli actually has more protein than beef! What?! In addition to that, you only lack protein if you don’t eat enough calories. If you hear of anyone lacking energy or experiencing “malnutrition” from the Vegan lifestyle, it most likely is because they are not eating enough calories.
Number 2.
I also thought so in the beginning. I thought I won’t be able to survive without any source of proteins such as eggs (I was vegetarian). In fact, that was actually the only reason why I personally didn’t go full vegan yet. And I loved cheese! In reality, it takes intentionally changing your mindset about this lifestyle and to be open with learning, growing and trying the Plant-based lifestyle! Once I did and tried it… I thrived in the first week… and it turned to one month… two months… etc. until now!I read so many stories of people doing this for years, decades, and living a healthy life! ⠀
And so I tell myself now… “Well how about that Jenna, it worked on you girl!”
Number 3.
Contrary to popular belief, plant-based is not restrictive! You can eat as much as you want and be full.
There’s so much to be said in that sentence. How is it not restrictive when it is vegan? What about the meat-lovers out there? How can they be satisfied with this lifestyle? And veggies are so light in the stomach!
That’s why the Plant-based lifestyle is also called “starch-based” at times. It is from eating a balance of starch-based food and vegetables, that you will feel the fullness and no restriction on the amount of food you eat. Which brings us to…
Number 4.
As mentioned above, Plant-based lifestyle is heavily starch-based. However, this mindset of “carbs” = “gaining weight” is from years and years of “weight loss programs”. Yes, if you restrict yourself from eating carbs, you will lose weight. But so as restricting yourself from eating meat, vegetables, even sweet! The idea is when you eat more than calories than what your body needs, you gain weight.
I used to think eating rice and potatoes make me gain weight! I eat a lot of them now, but I still lose weight… Wait, what?! How?!⠀⠀
Simply put, stay away from processed carbs and focus on healthy starches. For example, food such as rice and potatoes have naturally occurred “resistant starches” in them, which are beneficial for the large intestine, and make us stay full longer!
Last, but not the least, Number 5.
It is not expensive! Vegan can be expensive when you eat at high-priced vegan restaurants or buy those meat substitutes in the grocery. In truth, being in the Plant-based lifestyle, I spend half my usual grocery bill than before! I’ve read countless articles online and even friends who are on the lifestyle, proving this as well! Google it after reading this, and you’ll be surprised.
Well, those are just 5 myths that we’ve debunked, but WOW, right? There are still so much more out there that carries a negative stigma with the Plantbased Vegan lifestyle. What are some thoughts you had about the Vegan lifestyle? We would love to hear your comments below.

HOW 2BPB – Plant-based Weighloss Online Course LAUNCH!

On Monday, the 4th of November, 2019, I launched my Plant-based lifestyle online course I call “HOW 2B PB”, which simply means, “How to be Plant-based”.
Why this online course? As a Jesus-loving human being, I firmly believe God called us to love Him and one another, be in a relationship with Him and to steward His creation. He is coming back after all, and I don’t want to be caught red-handed killing and abusing His creation- humans, animals, the environment. I also truly believe how we act and serve each other is heavily influenced by the theology we believe and carry. I am not perfect, but “changed and changing still”, right?
So, I am extremely passionate about building the Church, fighting for social justice, and committed to living a sustainable life. I love the environment period. I strive to be a healthier version of myself, to continually equip myself to do the works God has planned for me in advance to do. Long story short, I desire to empower others, especially (drawn to serve) women, to live a life of abundant and encourage and teach you in faith, beauty, social justice, and sustainability. A mouthful, isn’t it? But in Jesus’ name, we can do it!
Shifting to the Plant-based lifestyle is one of the biggest ways we can help make a HUGE dent in solving the environment and climate emergency the world is facing right now. Recycling and using metal straws help yes, but the meat industry has a vast environmental footprint. (Another post) You can choose to keep living in the dark, but the fact remains the same. It’s not enough that we live comfortably in this generation. I strive to do my best to make this world habitable for the next generations. I don’t want to be an advocate of anything because I love peace! I want everyone to be OK. And I know to fight and advocating for something, whether it be my faith, social justice- freedom for slaves, or this- the Plant-based lifestyle. It’s hard enough disciplining and educating myself, how much more educate others?
I always go back to my “Why” who is Jesus. I cannot stand blindly while the person next to me still needs to hear what I’ve heard, and see what I’ve seen, and yet to hear what I’ve heard.
And so, on Monday, finally, I launched the Plant-based online course! Yay. It is not only to help one live a healthier life, lose weight in the process, therefore saving yourself but ultimately you are saving the planet for the next generation.
In the morning, I hosted a live masterclass on Plant-based lifestyle. And when evening came, I gathered some of my closest friends (in Sydney) my home, cooked a “pokeo bowl” style meal for them, in the intention of showing it is easy to make Plant-based vegan food, and it is yummy. I have to say, even some of my meat-lover friends loved it, and that’s an ultimate win for me! I may have to just tour all over the world cooking for people! (haha!)
I am grateful to be able to do what I do. It is an absolute pleasure to love and serve people. And cheers to the beginnings of this advocacy. Cheers to you for still reading this right now.P.S. If you or anyone you know, are curious to try the Plant-based lifestyle, would like to live a healthier life, lose weight healthily, make a huge impact on the environment. You do not have to completely go vegan, but even “Meatless Mondays” or even better become Plant-based for most of the week. Whichever it is, I created this Online Course precisely for you. I made it so much easier! Head on to my Online Course Programs to enroll now.

“The minute you willingly lowered yourself for someone else, they would never, ever look at you the same way.” I read that line from a novel I was reading. It was not a life-changing type of book, it was a passing time kind of romance novel. Yet, however, my God still speaks to me through […]
One of the unhealthiest things in our faith is when you process your thoughts and doubts about God publicly. I think there is something valuable in speaking our thoughts with people we trust who can listen to us without judgment. And allow them to speak over us with love and truth. Grace and truth. Grace […]
