When I travel, some find it strange when they see me eating raw zucchini and hummus on an airplane, or my ripe avocado with a spoon from my hotel room.When I’m home in Manhattan, I’ll roast a bunch of veggies on Sunday nights, then pair them with hummus, avocado, chickpea miso and sauerkraut.
You see it online, in magazines and on TV, but what is it exactly? No need to reach for a processed salad dressing when you can drizzle some lemon juice with olive oil, sea salt and pepper on top of your salad or roasted veggies. It might sound intimidating to simplify your food since our taste buds are acclimated to the chemical tastes of packed foods, but I’m living proof this can be done and you can have fun while doing it.
To me, eating clean is all about eating whole, organic foods with a focus on getting back to basics and ‘uncomplicating’ food. Years ago I worked in fashion at Vogue Magazine, and didn’t think twice about what I ate and drank on a daily basis.
Food and meditation were my path to discovering who I really was inside, and what my heart longed for. It’s a part of my life, and once you see how amazing you feel with this lifestyle, why would you ever go back to feeling not-so-fabulous ever again?
Trust me, ten years ago you couldn’t have paid me to meditate. My life revolves around taking care of myself, and making sure that I’m filling my body with nutrients, probiotics, fermented foods, healthy fats, proteins and complex carbohydrates on a daily basis.
Stop worrying about what others are thinking, stop trying to please everyone, stop eating a perfect diet or overworking yourself at the gym or in the office. Find who you really are and what your soul longs for. Trust yourself and trust the process of unfolding to your true self.
For me, waking up extra early and having a morning routine was something that truly helped me balance my life.
I’ve been a huge fan of the Ke Vita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks for years.
They taste fruity and delicious, are slightly sweet and still very low in calories.
Being authentic and learning how to be ME, instead of following what everyone else was doing, is what allowed me to embrace the world of wellness, clean eating and wholesome, happy thoughts.
Without this well-rounded approach, I wouldn’t be where I am today – in perfect health – vibrant, helping others and embracing life.
They’re perfect when I want a sweet and bubbly drink, and are packed with probiotics.
