BINTO: What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
Meditate for twenty minutes and then take my puppy Charlie out for a quick walk to go to the bathroom. Once back in the apartment I write down three things I’m grateful for and three things I’m manifesting, drink water with lemon & ACV, and then an espresso latte while combing through my emails and DMs.
BINTO: What is the last thing you do before you go to sleep?
Persistently hug Charlie goodnight and then brush my teeth and begin my semi-new 4/5 step beauty regimen. Once in bed I spend some time debriefing the day with my husband and state one thing I’m grateful for from that day and one thing I’m excited about for the next day.
BINTO: What are some of your favorite healthy foods?
I really love all foods; honestly everything except cilantro (it tastes like the smell of stink bugs to me!). Some of my favorite foods are anything with avocado, sweet potato in all forms, breakfast bowls, and ice cream.
BINTO: What is your favorite restaurant?
My favorite restaurant to go for a date night is probably Bar Sardine or L’artusi in NYC. For take-out I love Banter, Cava, or Gupshup for Indian.
BINTO: Tell us about your fitness routine.
Fitness has always played a large role in my life and is a huge form of stress release for me. I exercise as much, if not more, for my mental health than my physical health. I am currently loving running outside, boxing (mainly at Rumble), HIIT classes, and pilates.
BINTO: What was the defining moment when you realized you could take your health into your own hands?
When I started cooking for myself and realizing how much better I felt. I didn’t realize that a lot of the things I was eating at restaurants were made with ingredients I wouldn’t necessarily cook with in my kitchen. Once I began exploring my own talents in the kitchen I noticed how much fun it was and how much better I felt.
BINTO: Do you use Binto? If so, what kind of changes have you experienced as a result?
Yes! I have notice a difference with my general gut health, which is what my specific pills were focused on.
BINTO: How do you define wellness?
Finding joy and happiness in the grey area. I find we are so hard on ourselves and try to create such strict rules around wellness forming two distinct black and white categories. I define wellness as living in that middle ground and enjoying all aspects of life while doing so.
BINTO: What do you consider to be the most important step of your wellness routine?
Beginning and continuing my meditation practice for the past two years has been the largest and most important step of my wellness routine.
BINTO: How has your wellness routine evolved over the years?
I used to be a very type-A, go-go-go, routine oriented, and rule following person. While I was trying so hard to have the most efficient wellness routine, I was really wasting too much valuable time and energy focused on it all. For me, my routine evolved when I began to let go of things, enjoy being present and in the moment, and have fun with my life.
BINTO: What is one product you absolutely cannot live without?
Currently, my Beam CBD tincture “The One”. I like to mix it into my morning coffee (espresso shot with frothed cinnamon almond milk on top).
BINTO: How do you take your health and wellness routine on the go?
I try to be as minimal as possible when it comes to products and traveling because, in the past, I have let it consume me. I travel with my necessary supplements, my Beam CBD, matcha powder, and my travel electric whisk to make an in-room latte wherever I go.
BINTO: What is your biggest challenge in terms of health and wellness right now?
Creating a space for my audience to navigate through the noise within the wellness scene that is being constantly being pushed on them.
BINTO: What is your favorite part about being a Health Coach?
Assisting others in being the best versions of themselves!
BINTO: How do you channel your own ideas about wellness into your work?
I try to share all aspects of my wellness journey on my channel and focus on making content that is approachable for the consumer. I share my journey and what I am doing but stress that, most importantly, we are all different and there is no one-size-fits-all prescription to wellness.
BINTO: If you could give one piece of healthy eating advice to our readers, what would it be?
Eat more of the foods that make you feel good inside and less of the ones that don’t.
