Eating healthy day 2: A treat from childhood

The highlight of this meal is that homemade sticky rice ball called “粽子“ in Chinese pronounced “zoon zi”. Similar to “年糕“ pronounced “nyann goow” , it’s made from sticky rice, jujube, peanuts, red bean, and just about any dried fruit you can think of, all wrapped in the leaf of a reed plant. Yes, it’s vegan and deliciously homemade!

Grocery list:

  • green olives
  • seaweed salad & dried seaweed
  • bamboo shoots in chili oil
  • cabbage (such an underrated superfood! read this article for more info)
  • kimchi
  • baby carrots
  • sticky rice ball (sweet)
