More Healthy Tips

Hey everyone! As announced in a previous post, Wok from Your Dorm is hosting a guest post as part of a collaborative campaign to highlight the work of The National Association for Health and Fitness (NAHF). Recently, I created a podcast about how to cook healthy Chinese food and order healthy food at the Chinese restaurant. Before we jump into the guest video, a few words from the editor, Sophia. 

“Hello everyone! It’s Sophia, the editor of The Traveling College Kid. I’m so excited to share with you guys my video for this collaboration. As you all know, I have joined forces with Melanie from Wok from Your Dorm and Ashley from Yoga Is For All for a collaborative campaign. Since all of our sites address some form of lifestyle, we have produced a series of podcasts and videos that provide tutorials and information about fitness and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Our collaboration works to highlight the cause of an amazing non-profit organization called The National Association for Health and Fitness (NAHF). It  works to promote active, healthy lifestyles.

But first off, a little bit about my blog. I am currently a college student at Rutgers University who has a love for traveling. But as a college student, it can be costly. My blog focuses on ways to travel on a budget, especially if you’re a college student. Anyways, since healthy lifestyle is the essential theme of our diverse blogs, I have created a video on how to stay healthy while traveling. It can be super easy to snack away and not pay attention to what you’re eating because you’re on vacation time. But it is important to keep these easy reminders in the back of your mind while traveling. Simple things like remember to drink water throughout the day and watch your calorie intake can help make a huge difference while traveling.

I also just want to give a big thanks to Melanie for having me here on her blog and a big thank you to everyone who watches my video. Check back on my blog, The Traveling College Kid, for more information about traveling while being a college kid and for more updates on our collaboration. Don’t forget to like and comment! Thank you everyone and I’ll see you soon!”

Healthy Chinese Food?? – podcast

Hey everyone!

Wok from your Dorm has officially begun the collaborative campaign with Sophia from The Traveling College Kid and Ashley from Yoga Is For Everyone! If you missed my previous posts, this collaborative campaign will promote the work of the National Association for Health and Fitness (NAHF), an amazing non-profit organization that works to promote active, healthy lifestyles. Since all of our websites address lifestyle aspects such as cooking, traveling, and exercise, we have decided to collaborate to highlight the NAHF’s work on living healthy lifestyles.

As part of this promotion, I’ve created a podcast with tips on how to cook healthy Chinese food at the dorm and how to order healthy Chinese food at the restaurant. For those days you want to order takeout, I talk about what to order and what not to order from a Chinese restaurant to eat healthy. Tune into the podcast below to discover that healthy Chinese food is not a myth!

I hope this podcast was helpful for you, especially if you’re a college student trying to make it work (and wok) in a dorm room! Remember to check out the National Association for Health and Fitness (NAHF) for more tips and information on leading active, healthy lives.  Also check out my partners’ blogs, Sophia from The Traveling College Kid and Ashley from Yoga Is For Everyone, to find the videos and podcasts they have created to promote the cause. I’ll be featuring one of them in a guest post on Wok from your Dorm, so be sure to check back here for more content soon!

Behind-the-Scenes of Our Collaborative Campaign

Hey, everyone!

Who’s ready for this collaboration?

I’ve been busy working on an awesome collaboration campaign with Sophia from The Traveling College Kid and Ashley from Yoga is for All!  We’ve been busy creating podcasts and videos about how to live and plan healthy lifestyles through diet, exercise, and travel, following  the work of The National Association for Health and Fitness (NAHF). Since I last posted, we’ve designed and planned the entire campaign, including what each of our podcasts/videos will include. Sophia is creating a video with advice on how to stay healthy while traveling – what to eat, what to do. Ashley is creating a podcast about the health benefits of yoga. As for me, I’m creating a podcast on how to eat healthy Chinese food – both in the dorm and out at the restaurant. We’ve also figured out how to re-post each of our projects on each other’s sites and how to fit together all the pieces of our puzzle. I’ll be hosting a guest post by Ashley from Yoga is for All, so stay tuned for future content! We’ll soon be filming/recording the actual audio/visual projects. After that, we’ll post the projects on our individual blogs and create guest posts on each other’s posts.

I’ll also be hosting a guest post from my partners, so stay tuned for upcoming content.

Chinese Home Cooking – 2 videos

Hey everyone!

Today I’m introducing 2 Youtubers who cook Asian food at home. The first is Seonkyoung Longest’s Asians at Home video series. An winner on Food Network’s show Restaurant Express, she cooks a variety of Asian dishes and walks viewers through the making of each dish. Be sure to also check out her website! Both her cooking and her videos are professional quality, and her presentation and narrative is lively, funny, and engaging. Her recipes are also very organized in terms of the process, so you can get a sense of the general process of cooking Chinese food after only watching a few videos.

 

The second is Ling’s ChineseHealthCook Youtube channel. She makes Chinese food at home, and provides everyday cooking recipes, tips, and how-to videos. She has hundreds of videos demonstrating how to cook numerous, traditional Chinese dishes from the different regions of China.

Both channels illustrate clear how-to videos and recipes. Neither however are tailored specifically for the lifestyles, schedules, and budgets of most college students however. Still, be sure to check out their videos to begin to learn how to cook Chinese food at home!
