Who is My Nguyen? The Instagram influencer went viral earlier this year with her low-carb bell pepper sandwich recipe, earning her the nickname “bell pepper lady” on TikTok.
Who is the bell pepper lady on TikTok?
My Nguyen is a 40-year-old American blogger, author, and stay-at-home-mum. She has twin daughters who often feature in videos on her YouTube channel, and she currently lives in California.
Prior to finding social media fame, My studied Communication & Media Studies at California State University, East Bay.
She is the creator of MyHealthyDish, a blog offering free healthy recipes, many of which include healthier alternatives to otherwise calorific favourites.
The success of this blog lead to My Nguyen writing a book, titled My Healthy Dish: More Than 85 Fresh & Easy Recipes For The Whole Family, published in April 2016.
This video, posted on TikTok in August, shows My making a sandwich (if you could call it that…) consisting of an orange bell pepper (replacing the bread), cream cheese, spinach, everything bagel seasoning, and turkey.
Her TikTok videos typically follow in a similar vein to those posted on Instagram – short recipes that do well in the fast-paced TikTok world.
Responses to Nguyen’s bell pepper sandwich TikTok
Perhaps the biggest response to My Nguyen’s bell pepper sandwich came from chef Gordon Ramsay.
Using TikTok’s duet function, Ramsay ranted about the low-carb sandwich, calling it an ‘idiot sandwich’. This relates back to a classic Hell’s Kitchen moment, where Gordon puts a slice of bread on each side of a chef’s head and tells them they’re an idiot sandwich.
The scene has been parodied before by none other than Gordon Ramsay himself.
Ramsay has been using TikTok recently to rate recipes and meals posted by users of the app.
Users on Twitter have reacted pretty strongly to Ramsay – saying that Nguyen’s video actually made them try the bell pepper sandwich recipe.
However, other users haven’t been warming to the recipe as much…
