Any food secret you swear by?
It’s so important to listen to your body and eat whole foods. Our bodies know exactly what we need.
How has food impacted your health?
Once I started making my own meals and eating whole plant foods that I enjoyed, I felt so much more connected with my body. It’s as if my body was saying “Thank you!”
Any ingredients you love for detoxing or cleansing?
I love organic green tea. I drink it almost every day!
How do you nourish yourself?
I make healthy eating a priority. For me, plant-based living is not a trend or a diet. It’s a lifestyle and part of my self-care routine. I make sure to have lots of delicious fruits and vegetables easily accessible at home for meals and snacks. I also love practicing yoga, meditation and spending time with family and friends.
