New interview series: WOMEN IN WELLNESS

I'm super excited to announce my new interview series called Women in Wellness where I ask few quick-fire questions from the wellness change makers and hopefully this will give you some simple tips and ideas on how to live better.I'm starting with myself! :)

Your food philosophy
Local, organic, plant-based, minimally processed. My goal is to get 90% of my food from our local farmers market and no, I'm not there just yet.

Dream breakfast
Fresh fruits and green juice followed by a creamy cinnamony smoothie, avocado & veggie toast (on Ezekiel bread), roasted potatoes with green cashew cream.

Daily breakfast
Green smoothie, herbal tea (+ Yerba Mate), cinnamon oatmeal+almond milk + berries or fruit, and/or toast with hummus.

Go-to juice or smoothie
Smoothie: Banana, pear, greens, cinnamon, almond butter, celery + superfoods (interchangeably maca, green powder, plant-protein, bee pollen, raw cacao).

Morning routine
Short meditation in bed (5-10 mins, I use Insight Timer) while stretching my back, shoulders and neck. Morning Pages for 3 pages (writing anything that comes to my mind, things I'm grateful for, organizing my plans and wishes for the day). Bathroom and tongue scraping. Walk around the house and open all the blinds. Light an incense. Boil hot water for my daily warm lemon water and herbal tea. Take supplements with lemon water. Drink tea while going through emails.

What supplements do you take
USANA's Essentials, sublingual B-Complex. Homeopathic remedy once every 6 months (from my homeopath). 

Your fave kitchen tool

5 pantry staples
Raw almonds, quinoa, gf crackers, nutritional yeast, almond butter. 

What do you always have in your fridge
Organic lemon juice, hummus, Louisiana hot sauce, greens.

Favorite thing to cook for friends
Salad with a warm component such as roasted sweet potatoes. Nana cream or mousse for dessert.

Favorite way to workout
Riding my bicycle, flow yoga.

Strange or not so strange wellness habit
Tongue scraping, dry brushing, oil pulling.

Favorite thing to wear
Leggings, tunics and scarves. Oh, and maxi dresses.

Favorite place you've travelled to
Kathmandu, Nepal.

Where would you like to travel
Bali, Costa Rica and some quiet island in Thailand. 

Your favorite healthy place in your city?(yoga studio, restaurant, cafe, juice bar)
Yoga To The People (gorgeous loft in Mission District, donation based) and Pressed Juicery (love their green brazil Nut Milk!)

One piece of health advice
Slow down. When you talk. When you walk. When you listen. When you eat. When you drink.
