This mom is also a chef, a food educator, and an entrepreneur. Here she shares her favorite...
Way to start the day:
I make a big tea drink using a bunch of herbs and spices like maca and raw vanilla. It keeps me happy and energized. (Get the recipe here!)
Part of her home:
I love all the rocks, crystals, and wildflowers that I place everywhere. They make me feel peaceful.
A breath of fire, which is a breathing technique in which you breathe rhythmically and continuously through your nostrils. It helps oxygenate and detoxify your blood.
Cacao. I add it to my morning tea and also use it to make my own raw chocolate.
I do Kundalini yoga, which involves a lot of stretching and breathing. Other than that, spending time with my 3-year-old son keeps me active. Lifting him every day is more of a workout than one would think!
Coconut yogurt with cardamom, dried figs, walnuts, and apricots from a week- end farm visit.
Dharamsala, India. I just came home from there, but I’d love to go back. The mountains are beautiful, and the people are so happy.
Thing to do with her son:
Lie in bed and crack each other up.
A Japanese roll with avocado, cultured sea vegetables, and pea sprouts. It’s my version of a taco, and it’s insanely delicious!
Words of wisdom:
The grandest life lesson I’ve ever been taught is simply this: Choose to be happy. Once I embraced that, life became so much better.
Secret to work-family balance:
Throw the notion of balance out the window. Do the best you can every day—and keep doing it!
