Tart Gaspacho with Herb Parmesan Salad

The Fat Kid Inside x SeaBiscuit Films


Usually I shoot my videos alone at home with a small tripod, I shuffle around my kitchen, trying to have it remain stable among pots and pans, a heated stove and my forever clumsy hands. I then proceed to edit everything on a whim, put in some good songs and then upload the file as quickly as I can (if you live in the Philippines, you will understand how difficult this is because of our terribly backwards internet speeds). I do all of this because I want to be different from other food bloggers and more than just having a visual aspect (photos), I want people to understand the simple interaction with food (videos). To say that I am somewhat strict, when it comes to my work, is an understatement, which is why I get sad when my videos can’t be at the quality I want them to be, because I don’t have the proper equipment and audio-visual training.

A couple of weeks ago, a young group of professional videographers proposed that we collaborate on some videos; I was so happy because not only would this amp up the quality of the end product all of you get to see, but also that I would get to work with like-minded individuals, which always helps in exploring new creative formats. Their company is called Seabiscuit Films and if you have any projects that need a video/filming element to it, they are the people to call; they can be reached at and

We worked on 9 different videos, so I thought this would be the perfect time to start uploading them on a Youtube page since it is a little more accessible than vimeo (even though the quality on vimeo is better, which is why my vids will still be there) and that I will probably (hopefully with your help) reach a bigger audience on Youtube.

So the first video is a Gaspacho with an awesome song by Filipino artist Modulogeek.

This year there has been lots of chatter about raw cooking and the benefits that can be reaped from it. Though I am not 100% convinced by the raw, vegan, hippie movement, there are some certain dishes that I like. Not because they are vegan, raw or vegetarian, but because I just happen to like vegetables a lot, yes I am one of the weird ones.

      looks easy & delish :9 but i don’t understand why after blending all the veggies in the blender, you pour it out & put it back again in the blender?

      @2:23 that seemed like a lot of salt. Is grocery purchased granulated salt much different from rocksalt in taste?

        no its not a lot :)




I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
