Favorite indulgences: Popcorn and quality dark chocolate
Two staples always in my kitchen: Avocado and eggs
Favorite type of movement: Yoga. The combination of intentional breath with mindful movement cultivating this enhanced relationship between your mind and body. The hardest part can be showing up on your mat, but I always leave feeling better than before. Bonus: doing it in a studio where you also get to experience community.
Favorite way to spend time outside of the office: Being active in nature (hiking, backpacking, cycling, mountain biking, snowboarding, you name it), traveling (near and far), and adventuring with my beau.
Most favorite cookbook or recipe inspiration: Nutrition Stripped by McKel (Hill) Kooienga, MS, RDN, LDN and Savour by Peter Gordon / Website Recipe Inspiration: Nutrition Stripped and Ambitious Kitchen
A personal touch: I love sloths. Aside from sloths just being downright adorable, I resonate with how slow and methodical they are. I also find humor in a lot of unexpected objects. For instance, the time I was laughing so hard at a tumbleweed blow across the road in Utah that I started to cry. And this ‘Up Beet’ beet that I came across in an Austin, Texas gift shop before succumbing to the same uncontrollable laughing spell. This guy now hangs in our kitchen where I get to see it (and smile) on a daily basis.
