“One of my favorite snippets from a podcast I recorded recently was with restaurateur Danny Meyer,” she says.
“When I told him about my time in the corporate world and how I started to notice that I was spending most of my free time looking up restaurant menus or recipes instead of researching the markets, I referred to them as “red flags” and signs that maybe I didn’t love my job.
“Rightfully so, he corrected me and said these were in fact “green flags,” as they led me to a field that I was more passionate about.”

How would you describe your approach to health?
A very balanced approach focused on finding comfort and confidence in that “grey” area. I focus on feeling the best both mentally and physically by listening to my body and following its lead.
What’s one health mistake you’ve made?
Allowing myself to become too obsessed with being “healthy” based on what I was being sold by media and diet culture.
We want to know how to live a healthy life – how do you keep your life in balance?
Focusing internally on what I want and need in that moment. I’ve worked long and hard on becoming in-tune with my emotions and I heavily rely on practices like meditation and journaling.
What’s your go-to order when dining out?
Depends on the restaurant obviously, but it is safe to say that 99% of the time there will be fries on the table!
What do you do when you want to feel good?
Put my phone down and get outside! Spending time in nature is one of my favorite activities and it always guarantees to put a smile on my face.
Do you have an easy dinner idea for lazy days?
Tonnes! I’m a big fan of pasta dinners on the days where I don’t feel like cooking anything or a simple taco-inspired bowl with quinoa or rice, ground beef, spinach, and bell peppers. Super easy and delicious!
Give us a snack idea!
Lately I am all about crunch factor so I’m loving cucumbers, carrots, and bell peppers dipped in hummus or guacamole.
What are your fridge or pantry essentials?
Where do I begin! For pantry, I always make sure to have a variety of nuts, grains, and pastas on hand. Plus, 10 different jars of peanut, almond, or cashew butter (I’m a fanatic). For the fridge, I always have fresh fruit, lemons, avocados, and some form of green whether it be kale or spinach. Those are just a few examples, but those are things you can find in my kitchen!
