Food - what do you typically eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks?
I typically start my day with liquids such as a green juice or homemade matcha latte. Both are super nutrient dense but don’t weigh me down. I sometimes add superfood powders: Hawaiian Nutrex, Spirulina Powder, or Barley Grass Juice Extract to my green juice. In my homemade matcha latte, I add a tablespoon of Nutiva MCT oil for healthy fat, So Delicious Culinary Coconut Milk, and Omica 100% stevia.
Lunch and dinner are always changing. It’s generally something plant-based with the occasional high quality animal protein, my lunch go-to’s are M Café (M Chopped or Lazy Sushi Bowl) & Real Food Daily (Tempeh Reuben Collard Wrap) here in Los Angeles. I’m about 80% vegan and I tend not to snack much but when I do need a little extra something, my go to snack is one of my super-seed bars. I keep organic peanut or almond butter, blueberries, apples, sprouted pumpkin seeds, and cashews on hand at my office if I need more substance. I always have bone broth stocked in the freezer to satiate me between clients.
We eat dinner in my house as a family. I like to set a nice table, light candles, and eat together. This is when we get to connect and catch up on our day. It’s important to me that we don’t sit in front of television or on our phones as we eat. I always start with a salad, even if simple and try to make the vegetable portions outweigh the animal or vegan protein and gluten free grain options.
Mindful exercises or rituals - what do you do daily?
I don’t get too strict with myself! I find that when I’m too regimented with something it just becomes another check off my to do list. When I feel like I need to reset, I’ll throw on a guided meditation. I love the calm app or recordings from the energy healer I work with. Typically this ends up being in the afternoon. I’ve recently begun to regularly clear the energy of my space. I have a lot of people in and out of my office so it can get kind of hectic. I’ll burn palo santo or use my crystal wand daily.
Bodywork or workouts - what workouts do you love?
I love hot yoga! My favorite style is vinyasa flow. It resets me mentally and keeps my body strong which is what I look for in a movement routine.
I also really enjoy hiking when I get the time, anything that gets me outside in nature.
Products - what products do you find that you use daily?
So many!! I love finding new ones, so it’s always changing. Supplement-wise Nutrex Hawaiian Spirulina, Global Healing B12, Mary Ruth’s Certified Organic Liquid Multi/Minerals, Organic India Tulsi Tea and Ashwagandha. For skincare I’ve been using Shiva Rose and Skin Worship products. I’m also obsessed with Body Vibes smart frequency stickers! They’re stickers programed with bio frequencies that target everything from anxiety to toxins.
When it comes to food, I am a fan of Kite Hill Almond Cheese and Leaf Cuisine Cashew Cheese on gluten free bread called, KNOW. I love the fermented foods from Sonoma Brinery. I also love coconut yogurt and keep Coconut Cult in my fridge. I like superfood proteins powders from Philosophie and Amazing Grass. I keep LOVE water from The Divine H2O at the office and drink daily. I like to have Cashew Malk around for my smoothies. I add organic Navitas Hemp Seeds to just about everything.
Routines - any routines you’re committed to?
I try not to get too rigid with anything. Self-care has been big for me lately though. This means doing things that create more mental/physical time and space for myself. I’ve been working on not looking at my phone first thing in the morning - it’s a work in progress! I also try to book a reflexology massage once a week and an infrared sauna.
