Korean Tofu Scramble Recipe

Korean Tofu Scramble Recipe

Korean Tofu Scramble

Just wanted to start off with a disclaimer that this is probably far from an authentic or traditional Korean recipe. It’s just something I’ve really enjoyed eating and thought I would share it with you guys. I first made it using random ingredients I had in the fridge that I thought would go well together and most of them were Korean since I love Korean food hence the name.

That being said, it really is a delicious dish which is super easy to make. If you know me you know I’m too lazy to make something super time consuming or difficult so luckily most of my recipes are quite easy to make and even easier to eat 😉 Hope you enjoy this one as much as I do! Oh, and of course the recipe is fully vegan.

Ingredients

1 block of firm or extra firm tofu

1 white onion

2 cloves of garlic

An inch of ginger

Gochujang

Soy Sauce

Gochugaru or red pepper powder

Salt

Oil

1 spring onion (optional)

Sesame seeds (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mince or finely chop the garlic and ginger. Chop the white onion.
  2. Heat about 1-2 tbsp of oil on a pan or skillet on medium high and add the garlic and ginger. Stir for about a minute or two until the ginger and garlic is slightly brown.
  3. Now add the white onion and stir it for a few minutes till it’s partly cooked. Don’t cook it too well as it will still cook with the tofu.
  4. Once the onions are partially cooked, add the block of tofu. You can break it up with your hands so it becomes a scramble or with a spatula as you cook it. I would recommend using your hands as that breaks it up better.
  5. To this add 2 tbsp. of soy sauce, 2-3 tbsp. of gochujang, 1/2 tsp of gochugaru or red pepper powder and mix everything really well. Add salt to taste. If you prefer it less salty or less spicy add less soy sauce and gochujang/gochugaru.
  6. Keep mixing every few minutes so the tofu is cooked evenly.
  7. Once it’s done, garnish with a finely chopped spring onion and some sesame seeds (optional).
  8. Tastes best eaten hot or warm. You can serve it with some rice, seaweed and kimchi or simply eat it on its own.

Final Thoughts

I really hope you guys enjoyed that recipe. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions. I haven’t done a recipe in a while so maybe I’m not doing this right. Also, some ingredients such as gochujang and soy sauce are almost always vegan but it’s always good to double check the ingredients just in case as they may sometimes contain animal products. So, if you eat a plant based or vegan diet please check the ingredients on these products.

Do you like tofu? Did you hate tofu when you first tried it like I did? Have you ever had Korean food? Do you enjoy trying new dishes or prefer to stick with things you’re used to? What did you eat today? What recipe would you like me to share next? Let me know in the comments below because I always love hearing from you or simply stop by and say hi (woohoo that rhymes)!

Natural Remedies For Depression

Natural Remedies For Depression

Introduction

If you’ve been following my blog for a while now you are probably aware that I suffer from anxiety and depression. I haven’t talked too much about it recently but I decided to start talking about mental health more regularly again. I talk about my anxiety more than depression but I decided to talk about depression in this post.

I understand that a lot of people choose to take medication for their depression especially if it’s more severe which is perfectly fine but I personally have chosen to use natural methods to help me reduce the symptoms of depression. I tried medication but it did not work for me. If you are interested in how I use natural methods to reduce my depression keep reading. I think natural methods work really well for some people and even if you do take medication for depression there’s really no harm in trying these since they’ll help too.

CBD Oil

CBD oil has been really helpful with both my anxiety and depression. When I first started hearing about it I was pretty skeptical. Mostly, because it was coming from influencers who were pretty obviously sponsored so it was hard for me to take them seriously. It seemed like they were exaggerating the benefits and I had seen a lot of people try to sell all kinds of crap in the name of curing mental health problems so I thought this was one of those things.

However, thankfully, I caved in and decided to try it for myself. I started using CBD oil daily and the benefits were almost instant. I started to feel so much less anxious, I could concentrate better, my insomnia went away and I started to feel happy again.

This story might sound really sad but it’s actually a happy memory for me I promise. After taking CBD oil for a few days I started to find things interesting and fun again and I remember the exact turning point for me. I was on a bus on my way back home from university and was talking to a friend and we were joking about something and I laughed. Like I laughed for the first time in years. I mean, I obviously laugh at stuff but not like this. I usually found things mildly amusing and laughed for the sake of it but this was a genuine laugh. I’ve been laughing ever since- to a point where it’s concerning actually. Just kidding!

But yeah, that was the moment where it really hit me. I didn’t realise how depressed I was till I wasn’t anymore. I know it sounds weird but that was my experience and I always want to keep it real with you guys.

So, if you are looking for a sign to try CBD oil this is it. It has helped me a lot and I hope it can help others out there too.

Yoga And Meditation

Daily yoga and meditation is something else that has really helped me a lot when it comes to my mental health. The benefits of yoga and meditation don’t show up instantly so you do have to be patient but over time it came be life changing.

Both help you to control your mind and emotions and consequently help you deal with your problems in a healthy way. They also help to better your energy and make you feel more positive. I feel like when I skip either my day just feels off now.

I find meditation particularly helpful because I always had a hard time dealing with my problems. With meditation, I can sit down and really think about them without feeling overwhelmed by negative emotions. Personally, I still feel the negative emotions but meditation has helped me acknowledge and deal with them in a healthy way.

Proper Routine

Having a proper routine and taking care of your body is also super helpful. Having a schedule, sleeping on time, eating healthy, getting exercise and self-care can be extremely beneficial for people with mental health problems like depression.

When I first went vegan. I began eating much healthier than before and over time I felt so much better and still do. I have much more energy now. Eating healthy is also totally possible on a non-vegan diet it’s just I wasn’t eating that healthy before but going vegan pushed me to eat healthier. Cheetos not being vegan may have saved my life…

But seriously, eating healthy on a daily basis, sleeping well, exercising and taking care of yourself makes a big difference for your mental health. I always think about it like this- if you were physically unwell you would be told to rest, eat healthy etc. so why not do that when you’re mentally unwell.

Conclusion

I really hope all these tips were beneficial for you. If you have any questions or would like me to elaborate on anything feel free to leave a comment and I will reply as soon as possible. I am always happy to share my mental health journey with you guys in the hopes that it will help others going through something similar.

Dealing with things naturally is great but they are much milder and often take longer to work. If you feel like they aren’t working for you please seek professional help. There is nothing wrong with seeking help and it can be extremely beneficial to do so.

I Messed Up

I Messed Up

You know how I wrote that whole post about sticking to a schedule and that good stuff? Yeah. It’s been like week one and I already messed up lol. I was supposed to make sure I post blogging advice today but I randomly got on a call with a really awesome friend and didn’t have time to write. To be honest, I don’t feel bad about it because I hadn’t talked to this friend in a while and I really enjoyed catching up. I’ll plan better in the future I guess but obviously as much as I love blogging my real life is important too.

Let me know in the comments how your day was and what you did today because I’m in a chatty mood today and I want to chat with all of you amazing souls!

More Reels!

More Reels!

As you probably know, Instagram recently introduced a reels to their platform and I have been really enjoying making them. They are basically short little videos and you can get really creative with them. I was always quiet shy in front of the camera so I’m kind of surprised that I’m having so much fun making reels but I guess people change lol.

I shared some two weeks or so ago and some of you really enjoyed them and asked if I could share reels more regularly so I decided to share some more of my favourite ones again. I know a lot of you guys follow my IG page which I am super grateful for but some of you guys may not use IG or may not want to follow me there since it’s so different from my blog. I thought this way you guys can still check out my reels if you like- WP is my biggest platform so I feel like it just makes more sense to share them here. Anyway, enjoy!

Hope you enjoyed those- they were a lot of fun to make!!

Lifesfinewhine’s New Schedule

Lifesfinewhine’s New Schedule

For the last few months I’ve been blogging kind of randomly because I’ve been busy with a bunch of things but I think it’s time to finally get my life in order and that means getting my blog in order too. Usually, I wouldn’t share my blogging schedule on here and just change it but there are two reasons I decided to share it.

Firstly, I felt like sharing it with you guys would be like writing it in stone. It would force me to stick to the schedule even if I felt like I wanted to give up on it or procrastinate or whatever.

Secondly, I know that this is a multi-niche blog which means that I write on a variety of topics. I know a lot of you have certain topics you prefer reading about and follow my blog for which is obviously totally okay. I write about a really large number of things and I really don’t expect you guys to enjoy every single one of them or be interested in each and every one of the topics. I thought I would share the schedule so you know when I’ll be posting on what topic and you can read the posts accordingly depending on what topics you enjoy.

Anyway, here’s the schedule and yes I used annoying names for most of them:

More Bloggers Monday

On Mondays, I will be sharing blogger interviews as I normally do so if that’s your thing check out my blog on Mondays.

Terrific Tips Tuesday

Yes, I could make a tip joke but we are adults people😂 Anyway, on Tuesdays I will be sharing tips of some sort. They will mostly be blogging tips but sometimes I’ll share other tips too like tips for learning new languages, growing your social pages etc.

Whatever Wednesdays

I’ve left Wednesdays open to write about whatever I want. I tend to really enjoy writing longer pieces about what’s going on in the world, popular topics people are discussing, stuff about history or sociological theories, etc. Some example of things I plan to talk about are body image, fat shaming, plastic surgery, toxic positivity etc. I will probably connect the post to my podcast topic for the week and discuss it in more detail there as well.

Thoughtful Thursdays

On Thursdays, I plan to talk about things to do with mental health, mindfulness and stuff like that. I feel like I’ve really dropped the ball when it comes to discussing those topics but they’re important to me so I plan on making sure I start talking about them again.

Foodie Fridays

This one sparks joy lol! On Fridays I plan to share content about food. I’ll share things like recipes, food reviews, What I Eat In A Day posts and pretty much anything else related to food.

Six Word Story/Short Story Saturdays

On Saturdays, I plan to share six word stories, short stories or poetry.

Sundays

I’ll be sharing the usual motivational quotes as I always do.


I hope that helps to kind of understand my blogging schedule better. I will try to stick to it as much as possible but don’t hate me if I can’t always do that lol! I will be following this schedule from NEXT WEEK so this week is going to be whatever lol.

Her Voice Pt 3

Her Voice Pt 3

<<< Previous Part

“What are you two doing here?” Frank asked again.

“It was him- he killed Emma! I know it sounds crazy, but I can explain! The proof is in the diary,” I explained, waving the diary in my hand.

“Is that true?” Frank asked quietly.

“Just give me the damn diary, and no one gets hurt,” Dennis said, looking panicked and pointing the gun at Frank now.

You killed Emma?… How… How can I ever thank you?”

I gasped in surprise not, knowing how to react. “Frank, what are you saying?” I asked, confused.

“That cheating gold-digger was going to divorce me and take half. I would have done the same thing. I guess Dennis just beat me to it.”

Dennis began smiling and turned the gun back towards me.

“Give him the diary so we can get this over with.”

“No. You’ll have to kill me first,” I said, tears pouring from my eyes. The tears weren’t from fear but disappointment. Disappointment that these were the men Emma was forced to deal with, that this is what their marriage ended with, that this is how Emma was treated by the men who claimed to love her.

“That won’t be a problem.”

Just as Dennis finished his sentence, there was a sudden burst of light. We all fell backward, and I instinctively put my hand in front of my eyes to block the light. The light dimmed down, and all that was left was Emma. Her spirit didn’t look like it usually did- covered in blood, skin white as snow. This was the real Emma. She was wearing the dress she died in but looked like she did in the memory.

“Em… Emma, sweetheart, I had no idea Dennis was capable of such a thing,” Frank blubbered. He looked like he had just seen the ghost of his dead wife, whom he admitted he would have murdered had he gotten the chance. Dennis was still on the floor, mouth wide open, too scared to even utter a word.

“SHUT UP, FRANK,” Emma yelled so loudly I had to cover my ears. From the corner of my eye, I saw Dennis trying to grab the gun which had fallen out of his hand when the light appeared. He pointed it at Emma, but she just rolled her eyes and with a flicker of her wrist sent him flying backward into the wall. She turned and pointed at Frank, who began to levitate.

“Sweetheart, listen to me… I’m sorry… I’m so sorry…”

Before Frank could finish his apology, she had sent him flying into the wall too. They both lay unconscious on the ground, barely breathing. Emma turned towards me.

“Grab the diary and take it to the nearest police station. I’ll make sure they don’t go anywhere.”

I scuttered to my feet, diary in my hand. As I was about to leave the room, I heard Emma call my name. I turned around and saw her smiling at me with tears in her eyes.

“Thank you. Thank you so much.”

“I love you so much, Emma.”

“I know. I love you too. Now go”

I stared at her for a few more seconds and then ran out. I hurried to my car and drove to the nearest police station as Emma had instructed, and after listening to my story and looking through the diary, the police made their way to Frank and Emma’s house.

I had left out the dead best friend’s ghost, helped me solve the murder part, and just told them I had a feeling something was wrong, so I snooped and found the diary. I also told them that I had hidden when I heard some sounds and from my hiding place I saw Dennis come looking for the diary. While he was searching Frank came home and they got into a fight which turned very violent because Frank threatened to turn Dennis in and Dennis threatened to blame the murder on Frank if he did so. Dennis beat Frank unconscious, and when he wasn’t looking, I hit him over the head with a lamp and escaped with the diary. I knew it wasn’t the best cover-up story, but it sounded a lot less crazy than my dead best friend beat up some guys who had it coming.

I wasn’t allowed to go with them, but, from what I was told later, they found both Dennis and Frank unconscious on the bedroom floor. When they eventually came to, they admitted to everything and went along with my story. Frank even admitted to verbally and physically abusing Emma when they were married. Dennis was convicted for murder and Frank for several other things which meant I wouldn’t be seeing either of them again for a long time.

That night was the last time I saw Emma. I miss her, but I know she’s at peace now. I just wish it hadn’t ended like this. I wish I could have saved her life. Unfortunately, we can’t change the past, but we can change the future, and that is why I began working part-time at a women’s shelter and started taking online classes to become a counselor, so I could work at the shelter full-time. It’s hard listening to their stories but helping them start over and seeing them get better is the most incredible feeling in the world.


I know I promised I would post the last part last week, but, I got busy, and also I didn’t know how to end the story. I don’t know if I love this ending, but I tried my best, for now, I guess. May edit it later lol…
